Poncho & Midi – NYFW Inspo

February 18, 2020

I get all kinds of inspiration from fashion week. Sometimes, it’s just the feelings of excitement from designers showing their new collections and the emotional buzz of being with a bunch of people who love fashion as much as you do.  Of course, this year I did experience it all from home, but I still felt inspired by many things. This outfit of the day is inspired by a runway look.  Wanna guess which one?

It was Gabriela Hearst’s ponchos, midi skirts, and knee high boots that made me swoon!  I’d love to have the looks right off the runway, but since my budget won’t allow that right now, I put together an outfit from what I had in my closet already. And I really liked it!

Son Jung Wan FW 20/21 Runway

February 12, 2020

A Son Jung Wan runway show is always a feast for the senses: the designs, the colors, the silhouettes, the lights, the fun music. It’s a runway that is made for an in-person experience.  So it’s bittersweet to bring you my seasonal review this time around having missed seeing the runway show in New York.  But it’s still a total thrill to see all the whimsical and amazing looks!

The show started with an ensemble of brilliant emerald green, head-turning looks.  Doesn’t this shade look so fresh and pretty right now?!

NYFW This Season

February 6, 2020

So usually at this point in February, I’m all aflutter in manic New York Fashion Week prep.  However, this season, I decided to take a break and enjoy the happenings from afar.  I’ll still be bringing you news and trends, though.  And I’ll be cyberstalking all the bloggers who will be there!

Winter Capsule Wardrobe

January 28, 2020

I was thinking about what pieces I’ve worn over and over this winter and thought I’d share them on a post. And then  I was noticing what a great capsule wardrobe they would make!  So even though this isn’t officially a capsule wardrobe (probably too many pieces right?), I thought it would be fun to look at it as one!  And for those of you excited for capsule wardrobes on the blog, stay posted for something more capsule-y in the future!

These pieces are ones that I wear over and over again.  Some of them are on sale right now too! When I couldn’t find the exact piece, I found something comparable.  As always, feel free to ask any questions in the comments or email me (dawnlucy@fashionshouldbefun.com).  I’m happy to share sizing info and styling tips!
