PFW - Satin Bomber Jacket, Streetstyle OOTD

OOTD - Marks & Spencer bomber jacket
As well as attending fashion shows and presentations during Paris Fashion Week, I also had the opportunity to attend the Paris ShopStyle Social House (#SSSocialHouse). A venue/lounge for a guest list of fashion influencers, the #SSSocialHouse was held in suites within the gorgeous Les Bains hotel. Similar in concept to the New York #SSSocialHouse, invited guests could have complimentary beauty treatments, refuel with food (and some cocktails...), and so much more. A highlight of this lounge was the 'Showroom' where you could view, style and borrow new season pieces from Marks & Spencer, THE OUTNET, and Neiman Marcus

One of the pieces I loved was this satin bomber jacket. The bomber or flight jacket has been an emerging trend for the last several seasons (actually, several years), and it is a must-have piece, especially in satin, right now. Aside from the fact that it went perfectly with my outfit, this jacket is reasonably priced (less than $100!) and an easy way to elevate any look to fashion forward status. Also love the pink/black contrast and the floral embroidery which is another trend that's super hot for Spring.

Get My Look:
Jacket- Marks & Spencer
Top (dress worn as top)- Amanda Uprichard
Jeans- Rag and Bone
Bag- Caroline de Marchi
Sunnies- Gentle Monster
Choker- BaubleBar
Shoes- Prada, bought these awhile ago, lower priced option here

Shopbop 'Event of the Season' Sale, Going on Now!

Mid-October is my favorite time for sales. It's not just that the discounts are great, but the merchandise (perhaps because I prefer the fall season) is so much better. Regardless, there's definitely lots to choose from! Shopbop is currently having a major sale which ends on October 14th at 11:59pm PT. Scroll to the end of the post and go here for more details/exclusions.

The gorgeous mirrored loafers above and the items below are my top picks from the sale. Don't forget to use code MAINEVENT16 for your discount!

metallic trench
A show I always look forward to for its energy and bold vibe, GEORGINE for Spring/Summer 2017 did not disappoint. The collection was confident and strong as well as seductively feminine.

NYFW Spring/Summer 2017 - Vivienne Tam

close up of runway look
The Vivienne Tam collection for Spring/Summer 2017 was as dynamic and progressive as the designer herself! Per show notes, the collection was inspired by "the vibrant diversity and energy of Houston, Texas, where art, music, culinary arts, science and technology intersect harmoniously in a multicultural cornucopia".

NYFW Fall II/Winter 2016 - Opening Ceremony

Emcees Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen announcing some looks
Held at The Javits Center, the Opening Ceremony show during NYFW was like no other. With emcees Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen, the show was titled 'Pageant of the People' and included special celebrity guests (Aidy Bryant, Ali Wong, Alia Shawkat, Aubrey Plaza, Diane Guerrero, Jessica Williams, Natasha Lyonne, Rashida Jones, Rowan Blanchard, Sarah McBride, and Whoopi Goldberg) as well as the models to showcase the looks. Part fashion show and part political message by Founders Carol Lim and Humberto Leon, it was, according to show notes, "a tribute to the America democratic process and the diversity of those who participate in it".

6 Fall Trend Must Haves + Shopping Strategy

6 Fall Trends- choker, bell sleeves, pleated metallic skirt, velvet booties
Fall is my favorite season for shopping and adding to my wardrobe, but it's also the most overwhelming. There are so many trends and amazing pieces to choose from which makes it hard to stick to a budget! 

So for now, I'm starting off the season focusing on just a few fave Fall Trends that can work well with many other pieces in a wardrobe.

My current must-haves:

1. Bell Sleeves - Just bought this one (shown in photo above) from Club Monaco. Love that it's classic, a neutral color and the sleeves are subtle, not exaggerated.

2. Choker - I have to admit, I thought the choker trend was not for me at first. I love the look, but didn't think I could pull it off. I mean, can you really wear it stylishly after your 20's? Also, the wrong one can really make your neck look shorter which is never a good look! But it's been such a huge trend that I couldn't help myself from trying different styles and finally found some I liked and didn't feel ridiculous wearing. Love the one I bought above and this one which you can see me wearing here on my instagram feed (@josephinacollection). If you're still not sure, just do a delicate chain in a 'choker' length. Best of all, the chokers I picked are all less than $50!

3. Pleated Skirt - A classic look that you can make edgy and fashion-forward with the right accessories and shoe, you can't go wrong! The one above is from Zara.

4. Metallics - I'm currently obsessed with metallics right now. Love it in bags (scroll through 'shop the post' below) or you can get a metallic, pleated skirt like the one above and do 2 trends in one...

5. Velvet - Just bought the velvet booties in the above photo, love them. A classic velvet blazer like this one is also a great wardrobe investment.

6. Booties - A forever Fall trend, a comfortable bootie is always a good purchase. Completely obsessed with my blue velvet bootie above.

NYFW Spring/Summer 2017 - Son Jung Wan

Son Jung Wan - Runway look, pink sequin jacket with pink satin voluminous skirt
Son Jung Wan's collection for Spring/Summer 2017 was energetic and fun with dramatic prints, vibrant colors and some flowy or voluminous silhouettes. Inspired by her interpretation of the '70s disco era, the looks were confident as well as flashy and bold.
