" Oh honey , did you get the eggs and milk ? ". Karl Lagerfeld premiered his Chanel fall 2014 RTW show during this seasons Paris Fashion Week. Lagerfeld is known for his elaborate sets and this seasons set was a imitation of a so called " Luxury supermarket". Every product displayed from bread to spaghetti packages had the Chanel label on it .Some looks seen were tweed , leather and lots of color. I think it is to say that Lagerfeld was inspired by Andy Warhol's art work and other Pop Art works.With his impeccable textiles , trims and embroidery Lagerfeld truly created a housewife's haute couture wonderland.

For my weekly favorites I wanted to go with a Parisian chic look. When i think of a Parisian look i think of nude, pale and pastel colors. To start this look off i chose a Dolce & Gabbana black floral short. I've had my eye on these shorts and thought they would be perfect for the theme. Another very Parisian trademark would be lace , this is why i added a beautiful Stella McCartney black lace blouse. To continue the nude trend i added a Manolo Blahnik nude pump. These shoes are a modern take on a old classic nude pump. Parisians or Europeans in general always have the most beautiful handcrafted jewelry,to imitate this I chose a Dolce & Gabbana gold Swarovski crystal headband. To add structure to this look i added a Michael Kors white tote bag. For a pop of color i added a sexy Victoria Secret berry color lipstick.

For this weeks weekly favorites I went with a more edgy casual look.Since we are at the peak of the winter season I chose a Haider Ackerman long sleeve cozy turtle neck. Edgy in fashion would be described as a classic leather jacket.That is why I added a modekungen.se leather jacket.To tie in edgy and casual at the same time , I added a BDG high rise jean. While picking my weekly favorites I happen to come across these killer paisley print Nike sneakers , these sneakers are perfect to make any look casual and trendy. I also added these timeless Gucci earrings to create a look of edge and class .To add a pop of color I chose a Rimmel Kate matte deep red lipstick. Finally I added this to die for (LITERALLY) Burberry hand painted structured tote. This bag is a great touch to any look.

Sicilian-born designer Fausto Puglisi premiered his Fall 2014 RTW Collection during this seasons Milan Fashion Week.The catwalk was filled with eye catching pieces and jewel encrusted flourishes.With his kaleidoscopic looks and montage to Lady Liberty herself, Puglisi created " Rock meets chic, meets Picasso vibe ". I really have to honor Puglisi he did not have print but pattern and his fabric was individually pieced together by hand ! Puglisi is soon to be a household name all over the globe.

This weeks style of the week is Lupita Nyong'o . The Mexican born beauty has amazed the nation with her exceptional role in Steven Mc queen's 2013 film 12 years of slave and her high fashion red carpet looks. I wanted to style Nyong'o in something with lots of colour that she could wear watching a fashion show to shopping in New York. I chose a Motel floral wrap top that I thought would look beautiful with her complexion and a Asos glossy mini skit , to give the look some edge. To make this look versatile I added a Coast metallic pouch bag . I thought this look would be complete with a Dorothy Perkins cobalt high pointed pump and a classic Kate Spade gold stud. To add a pop of colour I added a opaque matte lipstick and a forever 21 coral nail polish.

Scott Sternberg designer of Los Angeles-based brand " Band of Outsiders" presented his fall 2014 collection during this season's New York Fashion Week .Given that each model was wearing dark sunglasses and the surrounding of the runway was a line-drawn illustration of an urban apartment in a state of disharmony with lean vintage silhouettes that were balanced with large boxy coats , I think it is to say that Sternberg was trying to portray a 1940's inspired collection.Some trends that were seen on the runway were menswear references , nipped waisted pencil dresses , pleated skirt-suits , fur toggle coats , and many more very womanly looks. Women all over the globe will go "Khaki wacky" over Scott Sternberg's Fall 2014 RTW Collection when it hits stores six months from now !

Navy has been an essential color in my January wardrobe . I've had my eye on a Philip Lim's embellished twill bomber jacket that could be paired with casual jeans or dressed up with a slimming black dress.To continue the blue trend I added checkered scallop shorts.To carry this look from day to night I added a metallic creeper for comfort and a BCBG wool wide-brim hat to continue the look into night. For accessories I styled the look with a black Cartier watch , a navy Tommy Hilfiger leather tote and a maroon color lipstick to blend the blues together.
