Pedicure of the Week: 5 Polishes to Get Us Ready for Fall

Categories:Fashion

POTW Feature Image

Sweater weather is here, and while I’m sitting in the office in my chunky sweater and flats, I still haven’t forgotten about my weekly pedicure. (It’s one of my small indulgences.) With the slight chill in the air, my toes may be covered for now, but that isn’t stopping me from wearing my favorite fall colors to start the season.

It’s time to put aside the neon colors and the sheer pinks for now and welcome the warmer hues. This fall, I want to wear everything from a deep royal blue to a muted orange; for my first fall pedicure, I think I’m going to try Essie’s Partner In Crime! Check out it and several other key fall shades below.

LFW DIARY DAY 1

Categories:Fashion

Margo and Me_BH_3650Hi guys! I am so excited to announce that this is a very special week as I am doing something new on the blog that I haven’t done before! A daily diary! With all of my recent travels, we have been working our booties off to capture some really awesome content that will bring you with us on our adventures to London and beyond! With this being my first time in my whole life that I’ve been to the UK, I have a whole lot to share. Let’s rewind a little and let me tell you about my first day.

NYFW was gone and done before you could say “fashion”.  But on the very last day, a London Fashion Week survival kit package arrived from Push PR London packed with a few travel essentials like the coziest socks for the plane from Scotland Shop and a cashmere sweater from Eileen Fisher. Beauty essentials from Zoeva Cosmetics, Holistic Silk and Julien Farel hair care products. And last but not least, some more than necessary reading material from Company Magazine and all arriving in a trustyTusting carry on bag. My favorite goodie however was an engraved Margo & Me necklace from I Love Designer, who doesn’t love an engraved name plate necklace!

Just a hop, skip and a jump over the pond and suddenly we had arrived to the chicest hotel, One Aldwych which is situated just across the street from the hub of all of the shows, Somerset House. Getting off of the plane, I had just one hour before my first show started. The fast paced theme song from Home Alone was playing in my head as I raced to get ready and run across the street! The street style photographers in London are no joke, it’s kind of amazing! They are all so friendly and interested in snapping your photo. I showed them a little love and look, I even made it into the (web) pages of Grazie Magazine!

Out of all of the shows that I attended that day, there was one that really stood out to me for it’s unique presentation – something that is very unique to LFW are the obscure locations and settings that presentations were done in (I loved it!). McQ by Alexander McQueen was showcasing the new Spring 2015 collection down a side alley in a chic warehouse setting. Clean, white walls with nothing but crisp campaign images gracing them housed the beautiful new collection. I can be seen viewing one of my favorite groupings in the photo above; the white eyelet pieces. Actually not eyelet, rather hole punched fabric to give it a lacey feel. You know how much I love lace! Spring by McQueen was just a dream!

We snapped a few photos around the quaint neighborhood that the venue was located. It was a quintessential London street and the sun was setting so beautifully – golden hour! First day and I’m already in love with this city…

Zimmermann Hits the NYFW Runway

Categories:Fashion

Is it just us, or is Zimmermann one of the highlights of New York Fashion Week? While, yes, we are major fans of Phillip Lim, and Alexander Wang will always get our vote (and credit card details), there's something so feminine about every single piece in the Zimmermann collection. Plus, there's the little fact that this big name was Made In Australia. 

While we admittedly prefer having the homegrown label on the local schedule, Zimmermann's presence in the US is growing by the minute. "We've always had a really great response in the US," designer Nicky Zimmermann told POPSUGAR Australia. And if you need proof that this label is one of our biggest exports, remember this: Zimmermann recently expanded their flagship US store to a bigger, better boutique, located on Mercer Street. The NYC store is Zimmermann's biggest worldwide, and is in pretty impressive company, nestled amongst other big names like A.P.C, Phillip Lim and Alexander Wang.

So what sets Zimmermann apart from the dozens of fledgling fashion brands trying to make it big in New York? "Our aesthetic is very different to what other designers do in the US. We’re obviously influenced a lot by where we come from and people seem to enjoy our approach to colour and print and the optimistic approach to our collections. I think since we've had our own stores in New York and LA over the last few years that it’s really helped paint more of a picture of what we do and what Zimmermann is about," Nicky said.

Front row at this season's show was a cool round-up of Australia's most stylish women, with Lara Bingle, Nicole Trunfio, Emma Lung and Harper's Bazaar US executive editor Laura Brown keen to get close to the action on the runway. But, Nicky would happily do a little switch with the front row: "I just wish I could be front row at one of our shows for once. As a designer you spend all this time and energy working on a collection and you never get to see the show how everyone else sees it," she joked. 

Nicky says the collection, titled 'Cloud Stompers', is brighter than your ordinary Fall line: "It's very textural, colour and prints are very rich and there is a lot of intricate detailing combining metals and fabric." Scroll on to see what this iconic Aussie export delivered for Fall 2014 (that's Spring for us Down Under).

GRID LINES DURING NYFW

I’m a fan of windowpane prints and stripes as you can see! I mixed different grid patterns in my outfit but kept it simple in white and black so it looked a little more uniformed during NYFW.song-of-style-checked-blazer-stripe-skirt-wing-heelsI’m really digging this windowpane plaid print blazer for fall. I don’t really have any blazers with patterns so this is a great addition to my wardrobe. song-of-style-checkered-blazer-stripe-skirtsong-of-style-checked-crop-top-striped-skirt-nyfwsong-of-style-keepsake-crop-top-cameo-stripe-skirtEveryone thought I was wearing a dress but I’m actually wearing a Keepsake checked print crop top (similar versionhere and here)with a high waisted striped midi skirt from Cameo. song-of-style-window-pane-crop-top-gold-clutch-nyfw

Wearing that hammered gold clutch from Benedetta Bruzziches again and of course matching gold jewelry. I mixed in pretty Zoe Chicco gold rings and bracelets that I borrowed from LoveGold with my own pieces. My mirrored sunglasses are from Oliver Peoples and the gold frames are called Leiana sunglasses also from Oliver Peoples.

I showcased this outfit last week but wanted to share again since it was one of my favorite New York Fashion Week outfits. It was a quite warm day in New York and people kept asking me whether I was hot or not wearing asweater over a shirt but actually this shirt is attached to this sweater! I love this top because it gives you the illusion of layering minus the sweatiness. song-of-style-aquazzura-amazon-heels

I styled the top with its matching skirt from BCBG but instead of pairing it with ankle boots, I put my spin to it and styled it with my new favorite Aquazzura Amazon lace-up heels and a fun Dannijo necklace. song-of-style-bcbg-grey-sweater-shirt-skirtsong-of-style-grey-sweater-white-shirt-grey-skirt-aquazzura-heels
