NYFW: Skingraft Review

Hey darlings,

I hope you all had a marvelous weekend!

March is finally here and it’s a brand new month to start over and complete what we didn’t finish last month.  Yes, time is flying and we’re all getting busier, but it’s important that we stay true to the course and push it out.  Well, for starters, I’m going to give you this review of Skingraft’s Fall/Winter ’15 Collection as promised from New York Fashion Week (oh, it’s never too late for a fashion review my dears!!).  Prior to this February, Skingraft was far off my radar into the land of unknown: I had no clue that this designer brand even existed.  An unfortunate cause for me.  But, thanks to the heavens above, I have uncovered and am now officially sold to this masterful work of clothes.  Skingraft’s fall/winter collection serves not just killer looks, but screams “ATTITUDE”.  The provoking color palette of black and cream with a small hint of delicate stripes and patterns, I was amazed at how they captured my attention with primarily two colors and KEPT me wanting more.  Yes, it’s true that black is the new black.  But, loose-knit leather and tall brim hats are the new essentials for the cool kids.  The funky twists on the men’s leather trench coat had the audience gagging for more!  Even the turtlenecks for men, placed under leather bomber jackets brought the cool to being cool.  Skingraft’s brilliant touch of their striped over-sized capes for both the men and women coupled with booties and sneakers electrified the essence of street style.  You can also plan to be warm in their drapey motorcycle pants, redefining the baggy pants syndrome, yet with comfortability. Honestly, if you want to be seen and cool, then my friends you’ve found your new designer brand. And you can thank me later.

New York: Floral Chic

Oh New York. New York.

I have a love/hate relationship with you. Sometimes you drive me crazy being stuck underground on the subway train for more than 15 minutes. Sometimes you make me mad when I forget to move my car to the other side of the street by 10 minutes and I find a parking ticket given by the NYPD undeservingly. No mercy. But, then I love you so much because of the eclectic people here and I learn so much from the different cultures. And I also love you so dearly for giving me so much inspiration in this fashion capital.

Oh New York. New York.

Today’s outfit was inspired by my love/hate relationship with New York City (if you live here, then you know what I mean). The concrete jungle. Instead of being too fancy with this multi-floral skirt, I decided to pair it up with this dope sweatshirt (I love the quilted padded look on the sleeves). And of course, I paired it up with my favorite beat down boots (bury me in these please!). This entire attire is quite chic and comfy with a subtle glam. Really, anyone can try this, it’s not just for the young. Be inspired.

Attire: Sweatshirt – H&M
Skirt – Byron Lars Beauty Mark
Boots – Target
