Pre-fall for Marni means gearing up in fur, sheepskin, and voluminous layers. Floral prints, brocades, and plaid patterns played up the 2014 collection and were paired with fun footwear with metallic cap toes. Marni’s eccentric ensembles of bold colors and peculiar shapes are definitely for the oversize lovers and layer queens. I presume we will be seeing more women in wide-legged trousers this coming season.

Glossybox 004 GLOSSYBOX December 2013 Review

GLOSSYBOX is the largest beauty subscription service in the world, and the global leader in luxury beauty sampling. Last month I received a beautifully packaged high-end gift box, filled with fabulous samples that appeared nearly full-size. When I think of samples I imagine teeny-tiny bottles, but GLOSSYBOX delivers the good stuff. Their subscriptions are also fantastic, starting at $21 for a Monthly Subscription, you’ll get 5 luxury beauty products delivered right to your door. Each GLOSSYBOX also comes with a card detailing the items included, and the price for the full-size item.

Featured below is what I received. I have tried and loved each product as they were perfect for me. Using Michael Todd’s mask was great, mostly because I enjoy doing masks once a week and this was a refreshing addition to my ritual. Showering was fun afterwards, as I got to lather up with Anatomicals’ rose fragrant body wash, that smelled so pretty. Naobay’s moisturizer felt invigorating on my skin and is now part of my beauty routine. I’ve yet to try Ardency Inn’s eyeliner, but I did use the nails inc. polish multiple times! Take a look at the Instagram photos I snapped below. Also, I’ll be holding a giveaway on my next GLOSSYBOX post. Stay tuned…

Thakoon Pre-Fall 2014 Collection

Thakoon’s lady looks as if she has been borrowing clothes from her boyfriend this season, as he incorporated traditional menswear elements into his pre-fall 2014 collection. Intermeshing classic womenswear with reworked men’s sweaters, collared shirts, and below-the-knee pleated pants was Thakoon’s take on sartorial gender play. “Everything was working off this menswear idea but twisted and turned into something more feminine,” says Thakoon. Twisted indeed. Garments were twisted and knotted and made into dresses and layered tops. Even Thakoon’s one arm oversized knit was classic and edgy, also one of my favorite pieces.

Alexander Wang Pre-Fall 2014 Collection

Leave it to Alexander Wang to make disintegrating clothes look sophisticated. Wang’s pre-fall 2014 collection of seemingly moth bitten T-shirt dresses and tops was based on “the idea of deterioration—things coming apart, peeling away.” While some clothes came undone others were held together by colored leather harnesses. Wang’s frayed T-shirt dress and top made me think of ponies, especially when paired with his super tall riding boots. Wang’s welded wool and leather ensembles were extremely cool with my favorite being his black romper.

Chloé Pre-Fall 2014 Collection

Clare Waight Keller returns to softness this season as she presents a Chloé pre-fall 2014 collection that was widely feminine and flirty. Darling chiffon skirts with secret pockets, paired with dolly shoes tied at the ankle were the epitome of sweetness. Even Waight Keller’s chunky sweaters were met with delicacy as they were made of mohair and angora. Although the entire collection was charming, I was won over by Chloé’s thigh-high boots.
