I want them, and I want them now! Now, I’m not a “sneaker head” by any means. I don’t own a pair of Nike, Reebok, Adidas, or you name it pair of tennis shoes. Nothing against them, it’s just not my style. But when I laid my eyes on these shoes, it was different. It was like that moment a man catches your eye from across the room and he’s not usually the type you go for. You know, you usually like them a little more polished but this man is rugged with an edge. He’s not very flashy and his presence makes a statement. The more you contemplate, you begin to tell yourself, “Yeah, this could work….”
All of my girlfriend’s are pretty awesome and they all have stunning closets (and makeup kits). Just so happens that most of my good girlfriends BLOG .. about the things I love — fashion, beauty, and new gadgets! Last year I asked a few of my favorite bloggers what they were craving for (read that post here) and this spring is no different.
Now that NYFW is over, it’s time to check out what’s trending, what looked more than amazing, and what we hated beyond words.

Designers like Jenny Packham, Monique Lhuillier, and Naeem Khan brought out lots of sparkle and shine this season. You can bet your only pair of Prada pumps that your favorite actress or performer will be rocking these looks come fall.
I’m getting kinda geeked. This season’s shows will be a little light for us. We (Iconography Magazine) plan to do more people watching. We’ve hired a videographer so I’ll be in and out of the tents catching all the reactions to the shows before and after. I am also covering a few backstage shows for my mentor Marie Denee, from The Curvy Fashionista, while she’s at MAGIC in Las Vegas.
I love fashion week in February because we get a sneak peek at the fall collections to come. Fall is also my favorite time of the year. I love dressing in layers and the past few fall collections have brought tons of color. Check out my favorite runway reviews from Fall 2011 and a few of the trends I fell in love with!
