Ruffian showed their spring/summer 2014 collection on September, 7 2013 during New York Fashion Week. I had great seats and was able to see the collection up close. There were a lot of mixed prints and feminine details. I love the skimmer pants, flirty skirts and flounce sleeves. The fabrics were soft and floated with the models as they walked the runway. I am definitely coveting the navy dress in the photos above! Love!

Here is the press video from the Ruffian spring/summer 2014 runway show at New York Fashion Week. What is your favorite look on the runway?

1) There it is! The entrance to the press tent.

2) The Style Network’s “Style Lounge: Styled to Rock” This is where we loved to sit down when we needed to rest our tired feet. It was the THE most fabulous lounge inside the press tent. Rita is wearing a fabulous pair of jeans by 7 for all mankind. Online here.

3) The chandelier inside the Style Lounge. I would love to have this inside my home. A girl can dream. . .

4) Rita, myself and Katie at our favorite rest spot. My outfit details here. Katie is wearing a Diane Von Furstenberg dress and Valentino heels.

5) Papyrus lounge. The stationary brand was giving out fabulous and fashionable cards. They also allowed you to fill out a card to be mailed by Papyrus, for free! In this photo Katie writes and sends a card to a friend. Hello from New York!

6) Close-up of the Papyrus centerpiece. Love!

7) Katie’s shoes. Valentino Rockstuds were quite popular at New York Fashion Week. We saw the shoe style on several fashionable women’s feet in a variety of colors. Black was the most popular. Rockstuds are very of-the-moment. Love!

8) Show monitors. There were two monitors side-by-side which announced the next show. Underneath the monitors were computers where invited guests and press check in for each show.

9) The first thing you see when you enter the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week tent. A constant runway show, marble façade and behind the façade, a beautiful Mercedes Benz!

10) Katie and I on the stairs leaving the tent. We were amused at all the people who stand there watching everyone as they enter and exit the tent. There were people doing this from morning until night. Interesting. . .

I was thrilled and honored when I received an invitation, with a seat, to the Mark and Estel spring/summer 2014 fashion show at New York Fashion Week. This Los Angeles designing duo creates a fabulous collection of ready-to-wear which is perfect for life here in California. Since I was already in love with the designers, knowing I would have a seat at their show was thrilling.

The entire collection Mark and Estel designed for spring/summer 2014 was fabulous. I loved the mix of bright colors with classic black and white. The flowing, full skirts looked graceful on the runway and were styled with a little bit of California sass. Love that!

I cannot wait to get my hands on one of their skirts for spring; as well as the black and white striped dress in the photo above! Love!

Mark and Estel is made in the USA, more reason to love their work!
