If you haven’t figured it out by now, I’m not a complicated girl. I love jeans, t-shirts and overall comfort (first & foremost). With New York Fashion Week in my rear view, I’m reminded how I came into my NYFW fashion ideas with the thought of comfort in mind. Luckily, fashion and comfort can coexist under the tents at Lincoln Center.
Last week, as I rushed out of Lincoln Center to my next show, I was approached by FashionBombDaily.com photographers to be featured on the site for “Real Style”. (I had no ideas if I was going to be featured as a fashion HIT or MISS, but I was pleasantly surprised at what I found.) Check it out and let me know what you think!

We all know that these 90-degree days are already taking a toll on us …AND IT’S NOT EVEN TECHNICALLY SUMMER YET (June 21st).
Well DVF has just launched their pre-fall designs and we’ve found some pretty classic looks you can buy now wear all summer long and carry them well into the fall.
Wear The Color Block Trend Now…
Olivia Dress (In Apricot Beige/Marmalade)
Buttery soft and silky, the earth-toned Olivia dress has an easy femininity. Note the color block patterning and straight cut.
This look is absolutely perfect for Summer Fridays & once you add some accessories this look can easily take you from day to night!
Get a clue on weekend wear. Blues Clues…
Agaton Dress (In Tess Blue)
The drop-waisted silk Agaton can be dressed up or dressed down making it a versatile day-to-evening wardrobe staple. The dress snaps open and closed at the left hip and comes with a dyed-to-match slip.
I’m always looking for something quick and easy that I can throw on and go! (currently my obsession is rompers) but this dewey blue hue is perfect for a Saturday of shopping, weekend lounge and more!
Summer shorts…In the Office? UH, YES!
Dinne Short (In Black)
The cuffed elongated Dinne short can be dressed up or down making it versatile, chic and modern. Note that there is a unique waistband closure with crossover tab extensions that close using gold brushed snaps. Length is to mid-thigh.
CAUTION: Wear this look moderately conservatively (they are shorts for goodness sake!) Pair these shorts with a romantic blouse for a perfectly preppy-chic summer look.
Rocking Wool in the Summer? (Yeah, I said it!)
Linda Sweater (In Royal Check Blue)
The Linda dress is effortless glamour. This lightweight merino wool wrap is based on DVF’s traditional wrap dress design. A great transitional piece as the weather begins to cool. With a cross V-neck, long sleeves and a self-tie belt.
Yeah, it may be a stretch but don’t front – some summer evenings get a little too chilly for your taste. That’s when this dress goes in, for the win! No more fumbling with summer sweaters or tag along jackets, just pick up and go with this ultra sleek signature DVF look.

Who says SKIN is IN? Not Diane Von Furstenburg! She’s bringing a whole new sexy wave of long, sensual summer dresses perfect for any occasion.
Easy elegance is alway appealing in this one strap, maxi-length dress! It features a flattering silhouette in lily crepe, and the ruching and diagonal drape makes perfect for hiding those unwanted flaws.

Everyone enjoys a good sale, right? Especially if you’ve been eyeing a specific item – just waiting for it to come down off that retail sticker price. Last week (before it got abnormally cold….) I lucked up on two fabulous finds that I just had to share with you.
The DVP Jacket I found at the DVP sample sale (and the price was such a steal – I would’ve been crazy to walk away from it. (It was waaaaaaaaaaaaay less expensive than what you’d find it for at Nordstrom’s) And although its too cold to wear this as a winter coat (of course) this is a jacket that you can wear all year round!
Who says UGG boots are U-G-L-Y? These UGG leather Amberlee boots are pretty darn cute (for low-heel boots) and the detailed buckles, braided zipper and wooden heel makes it hard to tell that it’s actually an UGG boot (complete with furry in-soles.) Note: The fuzzy in-soles make these boots so comfortable, I was able to walk the entire day NON-STOP in NYC in those bad boys. Don’t sleep on UGGs. Trust me.
