What to wear when you have nothing to wear ? Situational Dressing

There comes a time in every fashion lover’s life where you make yourself wonder…”What the hell do I wear?” followed by “I don’t have anything to wear!”…I’m sure we have all been there at some point… But depending on the circumstance, I like to help my self overcome this horror of having nothing to wear by asking myself this question first. How can I make my outfit situational? This will help you be more on track on finding the right outfit. EJ Johnson gave us all the perfect example of “situational dressing” when he forgot his Chanel sailor hat while on a Yatch party. He wished he was more “situational”.

In my case, I was not going to a yatch party, but rather, I was attending the Porsche North Toronto dealership launch party… and needed to find myself an outfit fast! I went back and forth between different looks, but I ultimetly decided on wearing the outfit that made me look most like a race car driver.

My new two toned studded leather jacket that I purchased in SOHO, New York was the perfect piece for this evening. I paired with leather Vince bottoms, white leather Ecco Shoes, and a Yves Saint Laurent Crocodile bag. Quite honestly, Not the most comfortable outfit to wear in the heat. But it sure was the perfect situational outfit! and it got tons of compliments!

Next time you find yourself wondering what to wear, Think “SITUATIONAL” and I’m sure it will help in some way or another.

Until Next Time,

ZANG TOI – Ready to Wear – Spring/Summer 2018 NYFW

I finsihed off my S/S New York Fashion week season with none other than The Zang Toi show! Zang Toi being one of the official designers on closing day of NYFW, I was not only honoured but super excited to be invited personally by the designer to attend this show.  There was no lack of socialites at Zang Toi’s New York Fashion Week show. Sitting across from me was Donald Trump’s first wife Ivana Trump,  David Foster and singer Patty LaBelle. It was quite an impressive audience, I must say! It was evident that Toi truly knows his customer and has build loyal relationships with everybody seated in his front row. This seasons show was breathtaking! Fabulous emerald silks, and perfectly tailored gowns ready to be worn on a hot summer day shopping in Capri or having lunch in Portofino. My favourite and by far the most spectacular pieces for this show were the emerald green deep cut silk strapless gown with black bottom half.  The slick back ponytails definitely elevated the looks and drew gasps from the crowd as each model strutted down the catwalk.

Following the show, We headed backstage……. Where I had one of those  O!M!G! Fashion Week Sparkly Moments!! You know a moment so fabulous that it makes your whole body sparkle? Well, I sparkled! Backstage, Pattie LaBelle grabbed me, and said “I adored me and just wanted to let you know I was staring at u the entire show! I loves my style.” She said this to me with only a few seconds to respond to her as her security pulled her away! Crazy right ? This is one of the reasons why I love you New York!

Until next time, I will see you all again in February!

NAEEM KHAN – Ready to Wear – Spring/Summer 2018 NYFW

Oh! The drama! One of my favourite designers (ever!) Naeem Khan has raised the bar yet again with yet another super glamorous fashion show. I have been in love with Naeem’s work for a very long time! But have truly fallen in love with his work during his last S/S runway show at NYFW. This season, I had a tons of uber glamours projects and events  lined up for fashion week, but this was without a doubt my most anticipated show of my NYC trip. Seated in the front row was none other than actress Shay Mitchell, along with stars like Paula Abdoul, Kristen Cavallari and Payton List. Can you say epic FROW anybody ?

As the fog machines, and pounding music began, the first look was released.  Flowers incorporated in the haute couture worthy hair styles made for the perfect dichotomy, as these edgy hair styles mixed in perfectly with the delicate laces, and crystal fabrics from the ready to wear pieces. I love crystals and lace just as much as anybody. But fringe is my absolute favorite (If done correctly). Naeem understands my fringe obsession, and I was super happy to have seen him incorporate it in his last three runway collections. As you can expect, There was no shortage of fringe in this year’s show, and you guessed it. All my favourite looks this season just happened to have fringe… Shocker right?

I will be eagerly waiting to see what Naeem has up his sleeve for F/W 2018.

Until next time,

Sergio.
