Playing with yellow and purple

wearing: yellow tassel earrings (under $15!) (spring earrings!)/ lipstickpurple scarf / Sosken Studios coat (last seen here) (on MAJOR sale!!)  / black tee  (spring tee!) / skinny clack jeans (spring jeans!) / spring yellow nail polish / pale blue handbag / black boots (old, similar here)

I love this coat! You might remember this coat from last November, when I was attempting to wear it as the weather showed a hint of cooling off. The weather in New York was perfect for wearing it on day one of fashion week! Love that!

Since this coat is black and white, it was the perfect backdrop for playing with color. I added a purple scarf, because you know, color of the year ;-), and I also added these fun yellow tassel earrings for an unexpected mix of color. Since my nail polish was yellow too, I thought it was a fun way to mix yellow and purple. Throw in a pale blue handbag and voila-New York Fashion Week fun!


Yellow is starting to have a moment. It is one of the big spring 2018 colors, and it was splashed all over the New York Fashion Week runways for fall 2018 in both a cheerful, sunshine shade, as well as fall mustard. Start stocking up on yellow!

Day one of fashion week was really fun. I saw Tadashi Shoji, Pamella Roland, and Mimi Prober. It was a light day of shows, but with the new venue and set-up this season, it was perfect. I have found that I need a lighter daily schedule anyway in order to get around New York between shows.


Stay tuned! I have a lot of fun New York Fashion Week coverage coming up this week. There are so many new trends to look forward to!
