My Favorite Runway Collections from NY Fashion Week Spring 2013.

                    Betsey Johnson Birthday Bonanza Bash.


Girls just want to have Fun! Yes FUN and more FUN!This show was all about Betsey!  It was youthful, fun and crazy.  On her 70th birthday the designer put on an epic bash to celebrate the occasion, as well as a career that has spanned five decades.


60's



70's  







Models with teased-out, crimped hair hammed it up for the photo pit. 



60's, 80's and 90's looks.


Coat paired with a burnout slip-dress.




Rock/Grunge/Punk world that it is.

The 00's





Cyndi Lauper who came out and sang a couple of her hits, including "True Colors" and "Girls Just Want To Have Fun."


Wow look at the split I want to be like her when I grow up haha.






Dear Betsey Johnson, You are an inspiration, you really know how to party and know what girls love.  You make us feel girly with all your designs, clothing and accessory options. I want to come back as Betsey Johnson in my next life! 

Happy Birthday, Betsey!!

Love,
 Sandi Martini 






Marc Jacobs



As you guys know I Love 60's fashion and I was dazzled to see that Marc Jacobs had a strong 60's-influenced in his Spring 2013 ready to wear collection.
This collection is bold, the colours and geometric patters gives this collection an unconventional look. The models' hair and makeup also rock!








Oscar De La Renta. 


There was a definite 60's feel to this collection, the full skirts
and three-quarter-length sleeves on jackets, sweaters, and cardigans. It seems to me this collection is inspired by Barbie Dolls.  It's youthful and colorful with his established elegance through his evening wear.

This gown got to my attention  


   
               






KUDOS!! to Oscar De La Renta.

"The Versatility of a Little Black Dress"

  
    
  1. When the occasion calls for something with a little more "Tada" a cocktail dress can be dressed up for an event.  A little bling and a whole lotta of fun attitude will get you far in your favorite cocktail dress.

    I think this little black dress is very versatile, it can transition from a day dress to night dress which makes things simpler.  Swap necklaces and earrings or slip on a different pair of shoes and you will have different looks.

    When it comes to adding earrings, there's so much flexibility.  Play around with drop earrings or hoop earrings, whatever style you choose, earrings help to lighten and put emphasis on your face.  Necklaces are a quick way to alter the look of a simple black dress. You can go in many different directions, depending on your jewelry selections. Overall necklaces are one of the most ladylike accessories.  Amongst the basics, every girl should have long gold chains for layering.  You can turn a regular piece of clothing into a stunning outfit.

    Watches are also quite fashion statement. Strap an elegant gold watch for a dress up evening out. I love this leopard print watch from Guess.

"Sundresses" ☼ High on Summertime. ☼




In the summer you can mix sundresses with wedges,  sandals,hats and you are prepared for a barbecue or a day at the park.

I personally think that dresses rules; nothing says “woman” like a dress. They are perfect for every occasion and they are the simplest thing to wear. Since a dress is single piece of clothing you don’t have to worry about mixing and matching, unlike pants and blouses.

Polka dots dresses, I fancy them in every color, they are all uniquely special, all so pretty!
You can never have enough of them! I especially like this coffee bronze color on white dots.








My hairdo and make up is inspired by Lana Del Rey, her voluminous 60’s inspired bouffant paired with cat eyes is just the type of thing I’m hooked on.








I love the classic appearance and impression of fedoras and vintage clothing!
Also during the summer is perfect armor against the sun.  This classic fedora can do just that!  I think every dress should have a hat go with it.







Beauties have fun with dresses, beautify them. Play and experiment with accessories, try new hair do’s and most important, have fun! Especially in the summer, cause isn’t that what summer is all about.
