what do you think?

Hey guys!

I just purchased this dress from Stella McCartney's Fall 2003 collection and I was planning to wear it to an event next weekend, but I don't know which shoes I should wear with it.

Any ideas...?

It can be anything; I just need some suggestions, as I am the worst at matching shoes to outfits, or rather outfits to shoes.

The dress is much more vibrant than in this photo, the lighting on the runway must have been dark. It is a teal green with accents of black and silver.

Thanks :)

kao's knit kreations

Proving to be one of my favorite designers, Jen Kao is an American fashion designer of Taiwanese ethnicity. She was born in L.A. and grew up in Kansas. She graduated from NYU with a degree in studio art and obtained a graduate degree from Parsons School of Design.

Her career began in 2007 when she debuted a spring collection at New York Fashion Week. Elle describes her designs as "art-inspired, intellectually approached, and meticulously executed." M.I.A., Elettra Wiedemann, and Rachel McAdams are devotees of her fashion.

Kao is really quite good at the ultra-sexy but sophisticated knit dress (with her signature diamond-pattern paneling)

blush crush

Silver is timeless. Gold is classic. Diamonds are forever.

But the new style I think is going to be a big hit is rose gold.

Rose gold, first popularized almost a century ago, has made a comeback!
The blush-hued version of the precious metal is showing up in status watches, engagement rings, necklaces and more. The feminine pieces look delicate on their own but can also bridge the gap between white and yellow gold when all three are worn together.

Cartier made a major mark in rose gold history when the Trinity band (made of three intertwining bands of rose, white and yellow gold) debuted in the late 1920s. French writer and filmmaker Jean Cocteau popularized the ring and the look of rose gold by stacking two on his pinkie finger, sparking a trend in wearing rose gold and in mixing metals.

Though the classic Trinity pieces from Cartier evoke the metal's history, its recent resurgence can be attributed to the comeback of color in fashion. "The '90s were about black and white and minimalism, and everyone was into silver [or white gold]," O'Steen says. "At the beginning of the 21st century, color and femininity made a comeback. Rose gold complements all the frilly shades as well as all the neutrals this season. It just works with what's going on in fashion right now."

I have to say when I walked into both Macy's and Bloomingdale's last week, both stores had signs advertising rose gold, especially watches from our favorite designers such as Michael Kors and Marc Jacobs...

savage beauty

Maybe you haven't heard yet, but the Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute in New York will be opening a new exhibit, Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty, May 4 showcasing pieces from the McQueen archives in London. The exhibit will feature several creations from each of McQueen’s collections beginning with Nihilism (1994), and ending with his posthumous Angels & Demons (2010).

However, two of fashions biggest names, Samantha Cameron and Anna Wintour, were kind enough to give us a sneak preview at the Ritz in London this morning. Some other fashion darlings in attendance were Stella McCartney (who if you haven't noticed yet, is one of my personal favorites!), who is acting as the co-chair for this year's Costume Institute Ball, and Sarah Burton, the label's new head designer.

Of course, the preview was also an opportunity to start hyping this year's Met Ball. Taking the clue from Cameron, who in her speech said, "I'm sure that the party on the second of May will be a very, very special night."

 Here's the sneak peek:

comey's prints

Loved the prints at Rachel Comey this season. I have a feeling that we'll be seeing a lot more bold prints and enticing colors on the runways. Can't get enough!
