Royal Romance, WILDFOX summer 2014

I'm so excited to share our summer romance collection with you, it means so much to me!

This last year has been really crazy for me when it comes to love... I got the love of my life back and felt swept away by happiness! It made me truly understand love better and I wanted to dedicate a collection to how I felt for him. He is going through a hard medical condition and my girlfriends were immediately there for us in ways I couldn't have imagined. It made me see that true love really comes in 3 forms, family friendship and romance, even the family you make for yourself... we need all equally! I felt certain revelations from going through such intense issues, and for the first time I understood marriage and what it meant to commit yourself to love, I understood children and what it meant to start a family, I think I began to see love in a real way outside of the fairy tale, and what it meant in life. I found it fascinating to think about the fairy tale romance that I have all my life believed in, and I was sort of sad to let it go. For me this collection is a love letter to my imagination and how I have to remember to use it even when things get hard.

For the inspiration this season I really felt a connection to the 60's and royalty, I thought of a princess trapped and forced into marriage, but who was secretly in love with a soldier, maybe she elopes with him in the end. I liked how she was sad, but also so alive! She relied on her friends and sisters to make it through things, and no matter how rich with material goods, it would still be a struggle to find happiness in herself.

Listen to: Moon River by Henri Mancini

NYFW SS 14, Nicole Miller goes for French Peasant, sort of looks BeetleJuice.

Love these looks! Totally feels Winona Ryder, Tim Burton, Beetlejuice, wierdness. Nicole Miller described

Nicole Miller

 was talking about a revolution. Backstage before her show, the designer said she'd been inspired by Versailles, first by the estate's over-the-top gardens and intricate mazes, and then by the thought of fed-up peasant women storming the chateau and breaking all of the monarchy's awesome china. A print emerged—shards of broken dishware scattered among flowers. Embellishments followed—beading that resembled the swooping tiers of a grand chandelier. A slew of skinny, embroidery-embellished jeans and below-the-knee pencil skirts established the silhouette, while accented seams and figure-flattering prints, some echoing Versailles' geometric garden paths, contributed to the curve-con effect. A black neoprene skirt, pleated in the back and sequin-encrusted in the front, was worn with a pale silk shell also loaded with colorful sequins. That may sound like a lot of look, but the gems were artfully arranged. Resembling shards of broken glass, they created a clean angularity and a pleasing, graphic sharpness. Elsewhere, the bling on a fringed tank was heavy enough to cause the shirt to droop. Paired with a blousy pleated skirt, it lacked the oomph of earlier, curvier looks. There was a riot of colors and embellishments here, but also plenty of solid, standout pieces to start a wardrobe revolution of one's own.

Welcome to Salem

Ulyana Sergeenko claims to have been inspired by Russian women for her 2013-14 couture fall collection, but I really see more of The Crucible. These look like some hot, wrongly accused witches leaving court, tears streaming, in some warped, sexy, Salem fashion show. The make up tears were such a nice touch!
