dior & ysl

I sincerely apologize for the lack of posts this week. I can't wait for summer to roll around so that I can enjoy endless shopping (well, really window shopping) and blogging. To get back into the blogging groove, I have compiled a few delectable looks and some of the most luxurious windows-- oh la la.

When I hear even a mumble about Christian Dior or YSL, I am instantly intrigued. They are so iconic and absolutely unprecedented in their creativity. Browsing online, I realized that so many celebrities have had arguably their shining, fashion moments while donning these designers' gowns. And, not even considering celebrities their have been so many major, runway moments for the designers.

Peek through the looks and windows below to fall in love.

springtime florals at nordstrom

While window shopping a few days ago, I fell in love with Nordstrom's window display. The window combined florals, pastels, and even butterflies to illustrate spring's hottest trends.

Dress #1, Dress #2, Dress #3
The Lela Rose dresses above are ethereal and sweet. I can easily see a young girl frolicking through a meadow during the 18th Century in the first dress (the one lounging on the floor). However, the others are slightly more sophisticated and modern. Although I love the image that the first dress evokes, I can't really see myself wearing it. But, I would love to wear the others for Easter or some other spring event. I guess I will have to wait until next year! Hopefully, pastels and floral patterns will still be in style.

The BCBG, Trina Turk, and DVF dresses in this window while not quite ethereal are still trendy, fun, and spring appropriate. I am obsessing over the middle dress in lilac with its fun, geometric lines. The turquoise dress to the left is also super easy and cute. One of my favorite trends this spring is lace (I actually just purchased two lace items at Urban Outfitters today), and these dresses are all fall under that category. Therefore, I am obsessed with them.

the saks blend

Apologies in advance for the jumbled post that I have written here. Rather than writing a fairly long series of posts about my recent escapades at Saks, I decided to condense my visits into one: right here. So, here goes... I love Saks Fifth Avenue.

Isn't it so beautiful?

While I was in New York, I enjoyed these lovely Chanel displays. At the risk of sounding quite cliché and a bit dramatic, it was breathtaking. The white, the tweed, the sparkles were all painstakingly manipulated to create these gorgeous looks. I wish I could live in Chanel. But alas, I do not even own a pair of Chanel sunglasses. Eventually, it will happen, right? For now, I will continue to window shop and stare in awe at the quality of these frocks and at the immense detail that I admire so much. Sorry for the poor quality of these photos!

Has anyone read "My List: Karl Lagerfeld in 24 Hours" in this month's Harper's Bazaar? It was my airplane reading today, and I have now decided that being Karl Lagerfeld would not be too shabby.  Multiple houses, cars, cooks, and cars. I like it. And, back to window shopping.

This Christian Louboutin display is so wonderful. How could it not be while showcasing so many fantastic heels. I die every time I see a red sole.

black and white-- how trendy

Back at home, I made a trip to my local Saks Fifth Avenue. Although it is not quite as majestic and grand, especially in size as the original, it is still gorgeous and clearly incredibly fashionable. 

Another beautiful Christian Louboutin display created by Saks, marking the designer's twentieth anniversary collection. Yay!

Unfortunately, I missed Nanette Lepore at Saks. But, I still enjoyed this super fun, spring window filled with neon colors, floral prints, and an ice cream truck (see in the reflection). It just so happened that Coolhaus gave out free, amazingly delicious and creative ice cream sandwiches. I lucked out. I definitely need to find another Coolhaus truck for a nice, cold treat during the summer. 

P.S. Thank you for reading this incredibly long post!

i just can't get enough of you, miu miu

Unfortunately, I was only able to window shop at Miu Miu while I was in NYC. However, if I had walked by during its hours, my wallet would most definitely be empty. I am so, completely obsessed with the edgy, feminine style, radiating from each dress, heel, and handbag. Thank you, Miuccia Prada. The modern prints, silk, and leather transform the sweet, feminine silhouettes. I wish I could buy everything, but sadly, the hefty price tags won't allow it. Maybe one day, Miu Miu!

“This change signifies that Miu Miu is no longer content to be the bratty kid sister of Prada, the elegant snob. Miu Miu wants her own room now; she doesn't care anymore if Prada thinks she's tacky. She's a little overweight and doesn't give a damn. She knows how to party, defy parental supervision and skinny-dip in hotel pools.”

dreams of louis vuitton

I must admit while walking through the streets of New York, the window displays at my favorite stores lit up the sky more so than the skyscrapers and lights that are rightfully famed. With so many beautiful stores, I really can't pick a favorite. However, Louis Vuitton definitely lit up my NYC world on Saturday night. The windows were expansive and teeming with light. The clothes were fabulous: gorgeous, white, and yellow. Spring was literally embodied within the confinements of Louis Vuitton's windows. Très chic, no? Oh, and how could I forget? It was a merry-go-round of sorts with white horses, obviously. If only I could have ridden a Louis Vuitton merry-go-round as a kid.

Need to get my hands on this gorgeous, yellow-lace coat. Seriously.

I don't believe there is a sweeter or more romantic dress in the world than this one.

chic pillow fight?

Leave it to Bergdorf Goodman to make a cliché, teenaged-girl sleepover activity so incredibly chic. I was totally and completely obsessing over the pink and purple, playful pillow fights, lighting up Fifth Avenue. But, obviously it is not the pillows and feathers that make this window display so fashionable. It's all about the clothes. The blue and purple window is filled with Jay Godfrey, Rachel Zoe, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Alice + Olivia, and Rag & Bone-- find it all on 5F. The pink pillow fight features more 3.1 Phillip Lim, some Derek Lam, and even a little Pierre Balmain. Oh, how I wish 5F was my closet. These clothes are absolutely gorgeous and will clearly make you the coolest fashionista at your next pillow fight.

fashion in manhattan

This past weekend, I was lucky enough to visit my favorite city in the world-- New York City. I am so in love with everything: the lights, the crowds, the cabs. Oh, and the windows! I had to stop to take pictures of window displays on nearly every block. Honestly, I cannot choose a favorite window so prepare for a series of posts on all displays lining my favorite NYC streets. Look below and take a peek at some of my most favorite windows.
