Paris Fashion Week – Catwalk to Sidewalk

cover-pic

Hey guys :)

We are once again back with Catwalk to Sidewalk, this time for Paris Fashion Week that ended a few days ago! You guys probably know this, Paris is where I live and grew up. It’s always strange to me to think about it as one of the biggest Fashion Capitals in the world as it is simply home to me, but I do have to admit, great designers were born and strived here. Let’s see what these big Fashion Houses came up with this time around!

Carven:

One of my favorite looks during this Fashion Week hands down; I mean…look at those pants! I have to admit it wasn’t easy finding a pair that was as striking as this one but being a Free People girl at heart, I think these below do the Carven look justice. A perfect casual look that can be worn to the office or for evening drinks with your best girlfriends!

Pants – Free People, Sweatshirt – Shapes of Things, Shoes – V by Very, Choker – Missguided

Chanel:

Not including Chanel in a Fashion Week round-up would have simply been impossible. As always, Karl Lagerfeld did a wonderful job with this new collection, always implementing new or up-coming trends to classics like the famous tweed jacket. If you are a fan of the brand, here is how you can recreate this look at home:

Jacket – Zara, Romper – STYLESTALKER, Stockings – Yesstyle, Shoes – Glamorous, Necklace – Etsy, Flower clip – Natasha Accessories, Earrings – Novica

Dior:

Definitely my favorite from Paris Fashion Week. I feel like I could just run in a magical forest with this on or something. When I look at this outfit, a lot of beautiful images from fantasy worlds come to mind. Now, if you will want to recreate this at home, it will require a bit of a DIY. This skirt is a very strong element here and is super unique. The only way I thought this would work would be if rhinestones were carefully glued on top of the skirt to give it that dream-like effect. You should try it!

Sweater – Modcloth, Skirt – Chi Chi London, Rhinestones – Joann, Socks – Dolls Kill, Sneakers – Converse, Choker – Steve Madden, Earrings – H&M, Ring – Forever 21

Miu Miu:

I love this look for 2 reasons : 1- It’s very simple therefore easy to recreate; 2- Spring 2017 marks the use of colors usually considered like “fall” colors; and Miu Miu definitely showcases that as well as bringing a little classic Spring touch with the shoes. I know we don’t all have Gigi Hadid’s legs but I would definitely try to rock this easy-to-do combo like so:

miu-miu-ex

Shirt – Forever 21, Shorts – Boohoo, Shoes – Public Desire, Bag – Zara

Sonia Rykiel:

I could not end Paris Fashion Week without presenting one of Sonia Rykiel’s latest looks. Maybe it is a first name thing, maybe it is my way of paying my respects for this great designer’s passing in August. Regardless, I am completely loving this look that totally reminds me of old Sabrina The Teenage Witch episodes (like this look anyone?). To make what I have found completely match with the look, I would again do a quick DIY. I would cut the top from the neck down in the middle until about halfway, sew black ribbon around the cut and keep some to hang around the neckline, like on the picture!

Top – Charlotte Russe, Skirt – Topshop, Ribbon – Joann, Shoes – Steve Madden, Nail polish – OPI

How did you guys like Paris Fashion Week? Any favorite looks?

And what was your favorite Fashion Week for Spring RTW 2017? Even though I really liked all of them, if I had to choose, I would probably say NYFW had a lot of really great looks that I loved!

That is it for Catwalk to Sidewalk for now but I will write to you guys soon with exciting news!!

Milan Fashion Week – Catwalk to Sidewalk

cover-pic

Hello hello!

We are now almost done with our Fashion Week roundups (booo). BUT let’s first check out the great outfits Milan Fashion Week brought us (yaaayy). It was definitely and will probably be the most colorful and eclectic Fashion Week this season. I mean, you can already tell on the preview, these looks definitely brought some sunshine into our lives!

 

Dolce & Gabbana: 

 

dolce-gabbana

Sequins, sequins, sequins! And again, a little bit of flowers. We’ve always been accustomed to D&G’s love for va-va-voom looks and this one definitely makes the list! At least you know, if you’re ever going out with an outfit of the sort, you will definitely not be missed! If you would like to, here is how you can recreate it at home:

dolce-gabbana-ex

Top – Pink Queen, Jeans – Hollister, Jacket – Boohoo, Shoes – Iron Fist, Bag – Topshop, Headband – Etsy, Earrings Baublebar

Etro: 

etro

Probably one of my favorite shows at Milan Fashion Week. There was an ethnic and bohemian vibe all throughout the show and I could totally see myself wearing something similar next Spring. I also love this new trend of pairing barefoot sandals with regular sandals and seeing them through, accessorizing your feet has never been more fun! Wanna do the same? That’s how you can:

etro-ex

Dress – Urban Touch, Shoes – Nitro Ghillie, Barefoot sandals – Forever Soles, Belt – Closed, Bracelet – Panacea, Necklace – Etsy, Blue ring – ASOS, Set of rings – Forever 21

Fendi:

If Etro most likely had my favorite collection at MFW, Fendi has, in my opinion, the combo that will be seen the most next Spring. It doesn’t have to be this way, it could also be reverse, but I definitely predict a lot of nude+stripes pairings in the near future! Whether it’s nude jeans with a striped shirt, of a striped skirt with a nude crop top, I feel like the combo is going to be big. In case this prediction comes true, you’ll be authorized to call me Madame Fashion Irma 😉

fendi-ex

Jacket – J.Crew, Top – Topshop, Pants – Missguided, Bag – Target, Shoes – Office, Hair clips – ASOS, Keychain – JC Penney

Roberto Cavalli:

roberto-cavalli

Patchwork: The Return. A new type of bohemian look, that I find equally as awesome as in the Etro show. I mean look at those pants, they are crazy good; both crazy and good! However, I can definitely tell the trend hasn’t touched us mortals yet: as you can see, I found those inspired jeans on Etsy. So I am very interested in knowing how brands will interpret this next Spring!

roberto-cavalli-ex

Jacket – Vero Moda, Top – Alternative Apparel, Jeans – Etsy, Boots – Hollister, Neckerchief – ASOS, Scarf – River Island, Belt – Topshop

Salvatore Ferragamo:

salvatore-ferragamo

Finally, the simplest outfit of this round-up and selection of Milan Fashion Week outfits. However, don’t take “simple” the wrong way. This is just a very wearable outfit, on a day-to-day basis. If you take a closer look though, you will see the genius idea to place one top on top of another, that had a slightly different color, to give more dimension to the look. Also, I think wearing brown during Spring is a very daring move, especially if associated with small details of camouflage print!

Top – Nasty Gal, Crop top – Minkpink, Pants – Twinset Simona Barbieri, Shoes – Go Jane

We are now done with Milan Fashion Week!! What did you guys think of those outfits? Are any to your liking? Comment below to respond and I will see you guys next week for a round-up of Paris Fashion Week :)

And we’re back this week for a nice little round-up of London Fashion Week!

Hey guys, how are you doing?! If you’ve read my NYFW post from last week, you know what this is going to be about: finding cheaper ways to recreate those Fashion Week looks! If not, I would strongly advise you to go read it right now 😀 Ok, so let’s get started:

Burberry:

Florals and stripes are always big Spring trends – just talking about it makes me want to dive into next Spring already! Burberry mixed that combo so well during London Fashion Week, and I’m hoping my more affordable version of it did it justice!

Top – Modcloth, Duster – New Look, Blazer – Zara, Pants – BB Dakota, Shoes – Touch Ups, Bag – Dolls Kill, Belt – Vero Moda

Maison Martin Margiela:

maison-martin-margiela

Do you feel the David Bowie vibe here? Cause I do! Another great combo with stripes, denim and crazy shoes. There seemed to have been a lot of that on the runway and I am so far from complaining! Check out this recreation of the look:

maison-martin-margiela-ex

Top – Charter Club, Skirt – Pull & Bear, Shoes – Nasty Gal, Bag – Anne Klein

Markus Lupfer:

markus-lupfer

I know it really seems like the jumpsuit does all the work in this look, but to me, the accessories are the highlights here. I mean, look at the tie choker and heart-shaped sunglasses! Everything about this makes me want to jump in a car and drive into the sunset. Wanna do the same? Here’s how:

markus-lupfer-ex

Playsuit – Cheerful Spirit, Sunglasses – Urban Outfitters, Necklace – Apt 9, Bracelet – BCBGENERATION, Shoes – Wild Diva

Topshop Unique:

topshop-unique

It’s no secret that I already love Topshop, way before they decided to go on and create Unique, their runway collection. The whole show was amazing but this look was by far my favorite! Floral dress with a denim jacket? Hell yes! This is how you can do the same:

topshop-unique-ex

Dress – New Look, Jacket – Boohoo, Earrings – Forever 21, Shoes – Modcloth, Anklet – Pieces

Vivienne Westwood:

vivienne-westwood

Vivienne Westwood is and will always be one of my favorite designers. Her collections were part of the reason why I wanted to get a start in the fashion industry. She did not disappoint again this time with her forever Victorian touch. That jacket is so unique that the only way I thought it was possible to recreate it was to put gold flower hair clips along the opening; or sew them if you feel crafty! Check it out below:

Blouse – Mango, Skirt – Topshop, Boots – Apt 9, Jacket – Glamorous, Flowers – Etsy

So that was it for this week’s round-up! What did you guys think? What’s your favorite look? Answer below and I will see you next week for Milan! :)

New York Fashion Week – Catwalk to Sidewalk

Hey guys!!

So New York Fashion Week started last week and it gave me an idea: why not take 5 looks from the best shows at each Fashion Week and find affordable alternatives for those outfits? Does that sound good to you? Here are my 5 best options for New York Fashion Week!

 

Alexander Wang:

Who else here is picturing this Britney & Justin pic circa 2001? In all seriousness though, the whole collection felt like I was back in high school. I loved how he mixed prints and colors, even being bold enough to mix neon colors, to show that fashion has no rules. And this full on denim look proves that you can totally pair distressed denim jeans with its matching jacket while still looking fabulous! Check out this more affordable version of the look:

alexander-wang-ex

Jacket – The Ragged PriestJeans – MoussyBra – MissguidedSneakers – H&MBag – Zara

 

Alice + Olivia:

Saying that I’m not completely obsessed with this look would be a total lie. Wearing this, I would feel like I am in an old movie where the girl looses her head scarf because of the wind in those convertible cars. The entire collection was to die for but this was one of my favorite looks, although it was hard to choose! Here is how you can recreate it yourself:

aliceolivia-ex

Bustier – H&M, Jeans – Levi’s, Coat – Zara, Sunglasses – Quay Australia, Headscarf – Forever 21, Bag – Steve Madden, Shoes – Chinese Laundry

Coach:

Time for this grungy but feminine collection to hit us like a wave. Honestly, I was pleasantly surprised by this one and didn’t expect this from Coach! The native New York brand did a fantastic job and I absolutely adore this combo! You can try it this way:

coach-ex

Blouse – Lipsy, Skirt – Freda, Choker – Nasty Gal, Bag – Under One Sky, Bracelets – Forever 21, Shoes – Boohoo

Marc Jacobs:

marc-jacobs

Marc Jacobs’ collection was definitely the most surprising one. But then again, can you ever be surprised by his genius-like craziness (Panic! Said it, not me!)? I felt like I was just transported into the biggest rave there was, or had been dropped into Netflix’s latest teen movie, XOXO (which you should see if you have not). It was super hard to choose a favorite look but if you’re thinking of going to EDC or any similar event soon, you should try this one out:

marc-jacobs-ex

Top & Skirt – Minga London, Denim jacket – Only, Thigh-high socks – Dolls Kill, Belt – H&M, Ring – Missguided, Bag – Lenore by La Regale, Shoes – Office

Rodarte:

Ahhh the collection that actually screams “Spring”. You so wish you could wear something like this outfit to work tomorrow, don’t you? It’s no secret that I love white, so choosing this all white outfit was a no brainer. But the whole collection made me want to dance in a huge field of flowers. It’s your turn to rock this look and here’s how you can do so:

rodarte-ex

Top – Nasty Gal, Pants – Greylin, Bracelet – Heidi Klein, Earrings – Zara, Boots – Boohoo, Silver belt – Forever 21, White belt – Missguided
