This past weekend, we attended a lovely brunch hosted by The Four Seasons Hotel MKT Restaurant who partnered with Vince to show off selections from their 2013 Fall/Holiday Women’s and Men’s collections. It was a really neat experience as we get to mingle, sip on bubbly and have an up close look of the collection while the models walk the dining room floor. The special 3 course menu created by Executive Chef Mark Richardson was also delicious! As much as I love the typical “runway” fashion show, this was definitely much more intimate and I love that.

The refined but modern simplicity of the Vince Fall Collection is hot, slightly European with a nod to California casualness. It’s “Let’s do Basics” appeal to everyday practicality yet swanky and luxurious materials makes each piece a coveted item. I’m impressed by their “basics” being anything but basics. A total quietly gorgeous line if you ask me. Here are a few of my favorite looks of the day. Price tag is a bit steep but it’s surely worth every penny. I’ll surely have to save up lunch money for those edgy leather pants (bottom right)! :)

Jersey Girl on Valentine’s Day

This is an amazing comfortable jersey maxi skirt that I spotted on a trip to Target to check out the Prabal Gurung collection. I love how it hugs the hips and flares out at the bottom, accentuating your curves yet still flow and move with so much ease.

I actually came for these neon green beauties but if you have been to Target, you’d know that you never really leave with just one thing…

I hope you are having a lovely day today and that someone special has put a big smile on your face. If they didn’t, just punch them in the stomach when they walk by. :)

I really can’t believe how fast this year is flying by. It’s already mid February, and you know what that means. No, not the NBA All Stars! It’s Valentine’s Day! I don’t technically celebrate¬†because I feel like it’s such a commercial gimmick to put pressure on both men and women and I don’t like how it singled out individuals who doesn’t have a significant other…so I never really expect Nate to waste money on flowers that are doubled the price or dinner that tripled. Instead, I prefer a nice quiet evening at home with a yummy home cook meal. Usually I don’t like to share my kitchen, but tonight we’ll cook together. Well, I’ll be cooking while he gets in the way and makes a mess. :)

Whatever you do and whoever you love, celebrate love in any form it comes! Enjoy it and celebrate it every day of the year!
