London & Milan Fashion Week Favorites

Normally, I'm not a fan of animal print--a little leopard print here and there is nice but that's as far as my like for animal prints goes--but Burberry Prorsum's fall collection had me liking animal print...a lot. I really like the way they incorporated it into their designs, and I think that's because of the impeccably polished and tailored nature (no pun intended) of their pieces.

Luisa Beccaria's collections have become my favorite of Milan Fashion Week because they are always so romantic and quintessentially Italian. Her designs remind me of dresses you would see draped on women in old Italian paintings. They're so beautiful and vintage inspired. Same goes for Alberta Ferretti--her designs this season are so feminine and romantic.

Dalmatian Print + Utility Jacket

I have been on the hunt for a utility jacket for some time now and I FINALLY found one last week (on Valentine's day to be exact)! I think utility jackets are just the perfect everyday, casual jacket, and they're incredibly versatile. You can pair them with just about anything (shorts, skirts, dresses, pants, etc.) and they're great for all seasons. They're warm enough for cold fall and winter weather and also perfect for chilly summer nights. I've literally been wearing this jacket non-stop since I bought it, and the great thing about it is that it has drawstrings attached to the inside so you can cinch it at the waist for a more flattering look.

NYFW: Alice+ Olivia & Erin Fetherston

London Fashion Week is well on it's way so I thought I'd share my two favorite collections from New York Fashion Week. I had well over two favorite collections that I loved, but these two stood out the most for me. I have always been a fan of Stacey Bendet's quirky, fun and bright designs but Erin Fetherston has recently captured my fashion heart with her always ethereal and beautiful designs.

Look for Less: J. Crew Factory Lobster Sweater & Classic Pave Link Bracelet

I've been seeing this J. Crew Factory lobster sweater floating around in blogs and pinterest and knew I had seen something similar at Forever 21. Now, the colors are obviously different but the lobster silhouette is (almost) the same. Likewise, the J. Crew pave link bracelet has been making it's round EVERYWHERE! and I found one for (way) less than half of its price. This is definitely the most inexpensive version that I've found.
