This past Friday Neiman Marcus hosted a spring trend fashion show by Neiman's Fashion Director Ken Downing. I stole away from work for a long lunch to be fed by fashion instead of food; It was the way I wish to spend every Friday afternoon from here on out.
Which brings me to lesson #1. Eat one Chipotle burrito a day. That's it. That's his diet he told us when he heard one of us gasp that we were never eating again.
Lesson #2 - Gucci reigns supreme (and so does Chanel and Valentino). Who can blame the guy? I too am enamored with Gucci's recent collection by Alessandro Michele. And you know I'm always down with some Chanel and Valentino. It's my trifecta of choice.
Lesson #3 - Layer like a pro. Tunics over skirts. Dresses over wide leg trousers. Add a jacket tossed with abandon over the shoulders. Do try this at home. But remember, proportion is key.
Lesson #4 - Mix high and low. Be inspired by what you see, not by the label inside. Alice+Olivia with Chanel. Co with Michael Kors. Add a Tory Burch bag with anything.
Lesson # 5 - More is more (and less is a bore). Pile on the pearls. Wear lurex all day. Mix prints. Wear day for night and night for day. Be bold!
As for my personal takeaways; Pile on the pearls. Layer dresses over trousers. Be bold with prints. Have fun with fashion!!
