The Glitter Plan: My Book Review

Love, Love, Love this book! First off, let me tell you that if you are interested in fashion OR business, this book is most certainly worth purchasing. I usually don't read books more than once but I do see myself referencing this book in the future. I wouldn't recommend this book for men, as it is told in a bit of a girly voice but I really enjoyed that and it made it easier to read. It was like Pam and Gela were dishing directly to me as I read along.

Highlights: Looks of the SS15 Resort Runway

Stella McCartney

  Cool Japanese girl meets the Royal Tennenbaums

What I liked the most about this collection is the pieces with strong shape like the purple dress above. The multi colored texture of the dress was also very subtle yet beautiful. I'm still obsessed with matchy-matchy print on print like the first look. What's your take on the matching outfit look (top same fabrication as bottom)?

The Row

The first look is a major show stopper in my opinion. Luxury, class, and nonchalance presented as an extremely easy wearable look. The color palette is very soft and dreamy but put together in a smart way. Loving the simplicity of this pink sheath above.

Two-time winner of the prestigious CFDA Award for Menswear Designer of the Year, Thom Browne has gained international recognition for his singular style. With his impeccable tailoring and shrunken men’s suits, he continues to push the boundaries of men’s fashion.
