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)! :)

Neon Girl

I really love how sweet and playful this OASAP dress is and the neon is really bright, perfect for summer and on sun-kissed tanned skin (too bad I am pale as ever right now but it still works :). I was actually running on 3 hours of sleep this day after staying up all night packaging orders for my shop but instead of throwing on sweats, I thought putting on something bright and cheerful can give me life (also with the help of caffeine). Added a black studded belt and some silver metallic heels to edgify the look. Hope everyone is having a lovely Friday!

Sometimes the best kind of mornings are when you do absolutely nothing but sit on your balcony in the most coziest sweater with a cup of hot chocolate and soaked in the warm sun. That’s how my Sunday was and looking at these photos sure makes me want to rewind time a little. I hope you had a lovely weekend!
