mild obsession: DVF

Earlier this week, I spent the day stationed at one particular spot in the meatpacking district for a photo shoot with work. Luckily for me, this spot was directly outside of one of Diane von Furstenberg’s many offices on the street, and just before I left for the day, I caught a rare sighting of the designer herself. She walked out, smiled with indescribable humility and class, and in an instant she was gone. This, of course, got me thinking about all the wonder that the pattern master has and is still providing for the industry. This month, the designer teamed up with the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute as well as Diet Coke for the fifth year in a row to both kick off NY Fashion Week and support the Heart Truth campaign. Minka Kelly was the highlight of the Heart Truth fashion show in a custom sequin red DVF gown, and DVF also created a line of special edition Diet Coke bottles to be sold in stores and online throughout the month. Although the bottles don’t actually contain any Diet Coke, if you’re a DVF fan, these adorable collectors items are a must have.

Moral of the story… love Diane.

spring on the sunshine

I woke up on this chilly NY morning with no idea what time it was. I was out of it, my Nyquil for this winter haze was just starting to wear off, and there wasn’t an ounce of sunshine in sight. More than anything, I was definitely not in the mood to layer up and get out the door. Unfortunately, I had no choice but to get up and on my way with the rain visibly looming outside, so I forced myself to be optimistic and look forward to what the spring (or even next week’s trip to LA) will bring. Warm up with yellows, oranges, and bold, bright colors because spring is approaching and it’s time to embrace it. Pair a vibrant lipstick with some statement polish and loud, dynamic shoes and you’re well on your way to styled for spring.

Time off is great because it allows you to play catch up, spend time with friends, and get out to enjoy yourself more than usual. For me, the best parts of a vacation are the little things, like having a very lazy and very extended morning. Lazy mornings are great for extra pampering time that you can’t always fit into your daily life. Have a cup of coffee, put on a cheesy romantic comedy, and take your time to get ready slowly.
