Ah runway shows, how I love thee! I love that they make my heart flutter and make me dream about fashion. I also love that they help me to think outside the box and put together outfit combinations that I may not have thought of otherwise. Every time  that I see a designers collection float down the runway of Paris fashion week, I am reminded that I’m doing exactly what I should be doing for a career. But the one thing that I don’t like about runway shows you ask? The fact that I can’t afford any of the pieces that make me weak in the knees. When I watched the Chanel Resort SS19 show, I was positively smitten. The tweed, the hats, the white tights! I didn’t know what to appreciate first. It was all so stunningly beautiful and classic. And while I know that half of the allure of “designer clothes” is the fact that they are somewhat unattainable, I still can’t help but covet them. When a designers collection bounces around in my head for long enough, or keeps me up at night, I finally decide to style it and put my own spin on things. As much as I would’ve loved the tweed jacket from the Chanel Runway Show, I decided to pull out this beautiful vintage number from my closet instead. I paired it with a white news boy cap, a cream colored mini skirt, gold pumps, and a round Chanel purse. I must say, wearing this outfit to lunch quenched my thirst for the Chanel runway collection and made me realize that you don’t have to spend a fortune to look (and feel!) like a million bucks.

Do you get lost in fashion magazines and looking at runways shows too? How do you cope with your fashion fomo?

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. I like your blazer a lot, it looks so beautiful. Definitely looks like it has been taken from the runway. I like that it’s very light colored, perfect for spring.

  2. That is a super cute look. It kind of reminds me of the clueless movie, I loved that as a kid. I remember wanting to dress that way but just didn’t have access to that type of stuff. Sounds like I was wrong and can do this on the cheap! Thanks for sharing!

  6. That jacket is so cute! I love the colors! I too would love fashion week and runway stuff but yet cannot afford any of it! However you’ll probably find more affordable pieces similar to it pretty soon here because that’s how fashion works.
