This month, I looked to spring for inspiration, but got stuck in transition. The city started to thaw last weekend, and my thoughts were consumed by the patterns created by jagged angles of broken ice on sidewalks and snow melting off of buildings. Always drawing inspiration from opposing forces, this month’s design for Project de. combines structured softness and angled utilitarianism. If you follow me on instagram you got a sneak peak of this month’s design. Check in tomorrow to see the finished garment.
I already shared my favorite beauty trend from the New York shows and with Paris Fashion Week in full swing, I thought I’d catch you up with my favorite beauty looks from the Fall 2014 London and Milan runways.
In London, the golden crown at Simone Rocha’s show was fanciful and dramatic. Not an adaptable beauty trend for the streets, but it’s sometimes nice to stop and appreciate the fantasy in fashion.
Spending those extra minutes in the mirror each morning, separating my lashes and making ridiculous faces while doing so isn’t necessary anymore, thanks to Prada. For Fall 2014, Miuccia sent girls down the Milan runway with clumpy lashes, which somehow made eyes look brighter. I love the look with an otherwise bare face.
What were some of your favorite beauty trends from fashion month so far?
I am in the midst of packing for our seven-day trip to Michigan to visit my family, and I thought you might want to see my packing essentials for a snowy getaway. Michigan is much colder and snowier than New York right now, so comfort is key. Hence the flat black boots and layers of cozy knits. We plan to spend most of our time in the city, catching up with friends, but there will be a few days when we unplug and unwind at my grandparents’ house in the woods. Second only to comfortable and cozy duds, are different forms of entertainment that don’t require the internet. Looking forward to reading Matches Fashion’s Style Report, sketching and taking photos outside (if I can stand the cold). What are your packing essentials for a snowy getaway?
BLK DNM and Stella McCartney sweaters // Tibi and Rachel Comey booties // Matches Fashion Style Report // Erica Weiner rings // Muji Passport Notebook // Nikon D40 Camera // Comme des Garçones Wonderwood Eau de Parfum // Somme Institute Eye Cream // Elizabeth Arden 8 hour Cream
When all is said and done, these are the three things that matter most in our house…
I couldn’t have said it better myself.
