architexture kicked off kansas city fashion week with a boom. the messy top knots with the deep maroon lip for the sateen feminine looks was everything. i literally died for every look of this show. the black belts pulling all the looks together, to the pops of yellow, were amazing. i mean, a glamourous yellow maxi skirt, what's not to love right? and the hair and make up i would do any day. i love a messy top know done right. so what's your take away - you can totally rock a i woke up like this hair style with a look of all neutrals (black jeans, gray top) and a pop of color (yellow earrings). no really. that's the beauty of neutrals, they are neutral, and go with everything. easy right!? no go try it and let me know what you think
the mod looks brought by tomboy design studio by laura mcgrew were so updated that i felt like i could rock these looks now and not feel like i was wearing a costume from the 60's. you know what i mean!? there was a great homage to that era with the accessories, but the actual garments were very of the moment. the black and white ensemble was one to remember, and i adore that necklace. it's fab right!? the high low long sleeve red and white top is adorable, i want to wear it now. and the last look, a mixed print that includes black and white stripes, i done for. this show ruled, and i loved it so much! now i need to go find some 60's inspired accessories to rock with my mixed print outfits.
the darling of the hour ms. kate walz showed one killer line. the first look a fitted (i think i need it) dress with a dramatic ruffled cape and the last look, a zac posen inspired white gown with an amazing green hand portrait painted on the torso, were my favorite looks of the show. both looks are so different but are totally rememberable. i couldn't stop thinking about either of them. i adored simplicity of the navy dress paired with the glamorous cape. and the construction of the white dress was simply breath taking. now, how do i get my hands on the navy dress.
i met with alicia janesko of alicia janesko caftans & resort wear last thursday at the trunk show and really adore her and the fast that she's from kc! her designs are amazing and i want the one she is wearing during her final walk, that shimmer, was amazing. she is so talented! oh and those head dresses, she totally made them. i can't even begin to explain how amazing they all were. so delicate and perfect for each look. her whole line had a great feel to it! now how to rock a caftan in the fall…leather jacket, tights, and booties. are you with me?
to wrap up the friday night show - heidi herrman totally killed it! can we talk about the flattering 50's vibe i am feeling in this collection. talk about flattering and fun! oh and that printed yellow and blue skirt, oh i mean shorts, yes shorts! i died over them. like literally i want to wear them right now. i love how flowy they are just amazing! i adored this collection because it all looked like it morphed from the 1950's to modern day. and all with out missing a beat, and totally appropriate for today! i would definitely rock these looks - remind you of modcloth anyone? i'm totally digging it!
