NYFW | Day Three

Finally, the long awaited day three recap. I swear, there need to be more then 24 hours in a day. Read more like this HERE.

Jill Stuart

Long silhouettes reigned supreme throughout this collection in colors that Stuart calls "make up colors"-namely rose, clay, and blush. She recreated a few silhouettes like the classic pinafore in a cream silk and a pajama striped cotton that was fashioned into a crop and skirt. This collection was sophistication for those who are looking for a little bit of a change to their everyday looks and I love every bit of it. Is it spring yet?

Mara Hoffman

This collection was quite a change for Hoffman as she moved away from her iconic loud and proud prints for something more soft and muted. The first look down the runway showed off this new approach and everything that followed did not disappoint. She did throw some of her famous prints in, but I loved the color blocking experimentation in her spring line. These looks are the ones you want to take with you to the beach and never take off.


Famous for it's twisted minimalist designs, Tibi was an army of culottes, mules, and all things modern stylish working woman. The line focused on leather, quilted fabrics, suede, and linen and turned to South America and Asia for inspiration. Smilovic fused together elements from both countries with fringe adorned jackets and fluid kimonos-like trench and wrap blouses. I love minimalism and Tibi is always one of my favorites to look for inspiration from, and this season gave me even more to lust over.


Known for sending sexy down the runway, the gingham looks that started the show made you think that this was going to be a change for the designer. This was not the case. The following looks were modern and light with the perfect amount of sex appeal. High waists and tucked blouses, striped Moroccan blankets reworked into wrap dresses, and the beautiful cognac leather lattice vest were all I could think about. The finale of gowns that closed the show were what he called a "deflated 18th century silhouette" and I can't imagine what will top them. It also made me so excited to shop the collection he made for Target that hits stores Sunday.

This had to be my favorite day so far. Agree or disagree? Let me hear your thoughts too!
