Two Ways to Style Leggings

My favorite go to rainy day outfit always seems to be leggings and boots.  They're comfy, stylish, and go great in boots to keep your feet from getting wet.  Here are two of my rainy day, legging looks.

Herve' Leger Fall 2011

First of all I am in love with Herve' Leger.  Hopefully one day I'll be able to actually afford one one day.  Here are some of my favorite pieces from their New York Fashion Week runway show. 
 Loving this skirt.  The print and the A-line shape.

Sheer And Tulle: Marchesa's Fall 2011 Collection

Aaaa-mazing! So in love with Marchesa's Fall 2011 I could die! Look for her Fall 2011 runway show on Wednesday.  Enjoy...

"Inspiration can strike at any time, and this season it hit Georgina Chapman while she was watching late-night television—specifically, David Lean’s 1946 film adaptation of Great Expectations. She was moved by the disintegrating elegance of Miss Havisham, so Chapman and partner Keren Craig based their fall Marchesa collection on the character. “We liked the idea of the opulence she once had and her deconstructed, romantic nature,” Chapman said, adding with a laugh, “and [she’s] also a little bit mad.”
The gowns the designers will be showing on Wednesday will be artfully frayed at the seams, and Craig and Chapman are also exploring the idea of veils—not so much covering the face, but as a light layer of tulle over a bodice. Because this is Marchesa, there will always be some sparkle, but the crystals this season have been dulled with powder. “We love the idea of the dusty bride who sat in her dress forever,” said Craig."

Tribal Prints and Native American Inspiration

On our way back from Hoover Dam, Fernando and I passed a store with a sign that said, "Indian Jewelry".  Naturally we had to turn around and go back.  I couldn't just drive by without taking a look. 
Wish I would have stopped by this store before Halloween!  Would've been perfect for my costume.

Date Night Style

Spent the weekend in Vegas for Valentines with Fernando and decided to pull out all the fashion stops.  We had a nice evening which started with dinner at Nobu and ended in winning over $1400 on a slot machine.  I initially planned on wearing a tight red dress with a baby pink, heart textured cardigan but it dawned on me that Valentines day isn't until Monday.  Duh!  So I'm saving that one for tomorrow night.  Fernando spoiled me by getting me a pair of Valentino's for V-day so I had to pick up an amazing dress to do them right.

So at this point in time, Fall 2011 NewYork Fashion week is in full swing.  Two of my favorite Vogue Fashion Fund finalists sure made me proud this season.
