New York Fashion Week kicked into gear last week, and each day just keeps getting better and better as I obsessively troll’s runway slideshows. Although I hate to be thinking about anything else other than plaid scarves and English peacoats right now, it is definitely exciting to see what the designers have graced us with as far as Spring Ready-to-Wear fashion goes. Let’s take a look at a few of my favorite looks so far, shall we?

This bubblegum pink full skirt by Jason Wu (minus the prickly hair)

This boobilicious Zac Posen dress. Va va voom!

Jenny Packham’s sparkly gowns. Sparkles!!!

Carolina Herrera’s kitschy bird print. She put a bird on it.

biking chic – local design – daily candy – vote now!

I love that Seattle is such a bike city. Great for the environment, great for the glutes. The only problem? It can be a challenge to stay protected and stay fashionable while pedaling, especially when you’re caught in the inevitable rain shower. Solution? The Iva Jean rain cape.

Silkara Ultrex, a durable water resistant fabric (back off, puddles!)
Reflective piping for increased visibility (safety first!)
Half zipper for easy dressing and removing (so your J. Crew blouse stays in top shape)

The founder of Iva Jean, Ann DeOtte, is an avid Seattle cyclist (minus the scary spandex) who’s big on breaking barriers. AND, she’s made it to the big time: Daily Candy is featuring her in their annual Start Small, Go Big contest.

Be sure to vote for this Seattle girl here!

since most of our summer has been a prolonged build up to fall (see: coolish) i can’t help but look for ways to stay stylish but warm.  and since hosiery is my J-O-B (legwear designer for nordstrom) i get to study legwear for work.  i’ve been seeing all these adorable iterations of the OTK and bold, statement tights.  a look i can’t help but mimic as we make our way into the dreary months…

allie, vicoria and i gathered some inspiration for you- let us know what you think! (featured above, a stylish lady from paris- eleonor bridge– since my french isn’t what it used to be, i can’t tell you much more than that- but don’t you love the tutu and socks!?!)

my picks– something bold- love the mod style. although i couldn’t find the original from garance dore, this was linked on this is love forever

end of summer, layered sheers– very cool
