Happy Tuesday everyone!
I know. It's been a looooong time since I've last posted. I've been trying to figure out what direction I want to take my blog, and I don't want to be posting less-than-perfect outfit posts for you guys.
In the meantime, I had the opportunity to attend Leanne Marshall's FW16 Collection during New York Fashion Week.
Disclaimer: This was my first fashion show and first time attending NYFW, so you can imagine the giddy smile I had on my face the entire show.
Marshall's collection was practically everything I love when it comes to style. The colors in her collection ranged from black (my fave), maroon, brown and autumn gold (also know as marigold).
In case you missed it, marigold is the color of the moment. Jennifer Lopez, America Ferrera and many others have graced the red carpets in this color. Needless to say, I'm about it.
Marshall is well known for her bridal collection, and as you can see in some of my photos she was showcasing a few of those pieces. What I love most about this collection is Marshall's juxtaposition of delicate detail to the overall minimalist aesthetic the dresses carry. If you've seen any past post of mine you know I live by the motto "less is more." Marshall truly understands that with her collection.
If I had to pick a favorite it would be the autumn gold silk charmeuse deep v gown with the graduated tier skirt (the first picture in my post). Marshall balanced boldness and sophistication by mixing a daring cut (that deep v) with restrained detailing. The graduated tier skirt adds movement to the dress, while the bow ties the whole piece together.
Marshall's collection was truly gorgeous and totally wearable. I'm grateful I had the opportunity to experience a taste of NYFW and thank you Leanne Marshall for the beautiful show!
As always, thanks for reading :)
