NY Fashion Week: Golden Grace at Altuzarra and Jason Wu

Happy Monday, all. Hope you had a lovely weekend! Let's wander away from summer in Provence for a moment and hop over to Spring 2014 in New York.

We're only a few days into NY Fashion week, and already there's plenty to inspire, but the "I'm Obsessed" award so far has to go to Jason Wu and Altuzarra, where a golden gracefulness and sleekly styled hair caught (and kept) my eye.

Both designers mentioned "ease" when discussing their collections, and did a fantastic job of showing how do relaxed, bling and elegant all at once. Forget waiting for spring, I want to pair these sparkly tanks with a blushing boyfriend cardigan and a pair of khakis now.

But what I really can't wait to incorporate into my everyday style is a sleek, chic pony tail - complete with a gold cuff as shown at Jason Wu. The Cut Blog covered the step-by-step and I found a similar hairband here.

What do you think? Will you add a little bling come spring? Or is golden sparkle always a bit too fussy for you?

  1. Unfortunately the sparkle is a bit to much for me but I love the look. The ponytails look so sleek but I'm about to cut mine off for locks of love. This was a beautiful collection! Enjoy your week Jeanne!


  2. I am dying for this cuff! Always nice to have a way to make a simple ponytail look finished.
    I love this collection too, Jeanne!
    Thank you for sharing.

  3. LOVE Jason Wu too....though the sparkles to me are really appropriate only for a festive party or the holidays...he continues to wow and love the sleek ponytale and cuff...classic and understated!

  4. We're always up for a little sparkle - day or night. Given that the ponytail is our go to hairstyle, we may have to buy one of those cuffs. It's a sunny golden day here and we hope you have a great week.

  5. Love the sleek ponytail and the cuff is the perfect accessory!

  6. Oh, I am always happy to add a little gold and sparkle to my wardrobe!! Jason Wu just keeps getting it right!

    And, I should take notes on that ponytail and dress up the one I end up in most days!

  7. Is it Spring pret-a-porter fashion already? Beautiful collection at Wu! Love Hilary Rhoda. She's from Chevy Chase, MD - not far from us. On the top of fashion, I'd love to catch Peter Lindbergh's new exhibition. His portraits of Linda E are beyond ~ Loi
