Paris FW: Carven Fall 2014

I decided I deserved a brief distraction while studying for my finance final, so I pulled together a few of my favorite looks from Carven's Fall 2014 RTW collection. It's a silly detail, but I was immediately struck by the way the models literally clutched their clutches. I kind of love it, there's a vulnerability there.

I will have a couple more favorite fashion month posts coming soon, as time permits. 

And now, back to work!

Ready for Spring Fashion with Zara

I just took a peek at the latest lookbooks for Zara's Spring collections and I'm SO ready. I'm especially excited to reintroduce lighter colors and fabrics into my business school wardrobe. A lot of the looks The thought of bike riding through Davis with bare legs and a warm breeze sounds like heaven, although I haven't minded the winter here.

In any case, I've recently found myself really liking the idea of all-white for the first time in my life...we'll see. 

Any spring trends or activities you guys are looking forward to?

Check out the full lookbooks here.

NSFW: Zana Bayne

I used to see Zana riding the bus in San Francisco. I'd be on my way to/from work, she was commuting to fashion school. I've been following her career for some time now, and am just thrilled to see her having so much success. Her vision is original, her execution is flawless. Here are some of my favorite looks from her Ornamentalist Collection, which she presented at NYFW last month. I'm totally obsessed with the leather tassels and gold chain fringe. So good.

Speaking of fashion week/month, I have been wanting to post so many of my favorite looks (those sparkly YSL boots yesterday!!) but of course school has been pretty nuts. I'll hopefully post some of my absolute favorites soon.
