What I Want Wednesday
(WIWW) is a weekly feature on Bergdorf’s & Bow Ties. It is a collection of carefully curated pieces, falling together to create the most flawless of all wardrobes…

This weeks feature piece was inspired by none other than Blair Waldorf herself. After seeing Blair in the season finale in her stunning powder-blue wedding dress, I just had to know who the designer was.

Sleeveless Crepe Flounce Dress $2,650

Elie Saab has a great line of of couture, some more casual and some definitely more formal. I couldn’t take my eyes off of this purple, lace dress, it’s stunning, it’s cute, and it’s fun. Made in Italy, with geometric cutouts and lace filing the gaps this dress is flirty and the purple add a pop of colour. I’m loving the belt and strappy-sandals that is paired with it, it’s a perfect date-night dress.

This purple piece is definitely what I’m wanting this Wednesday, check back next week for more of what I’m loving!

Bring On The Angels

Well it was that time of year again a few weeks back! The airing of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion show left girls jealous and guys begging for more. I’ve gotta say that this show never ever seems to disappoint me. Not just because the pieces original and extremely artistic but because of the performances! Rihanna definitely was the highlight for me for obvious reasons. Anyways, here’s a few of my favorite pictures from the show! Regular posts will be back on Tuesday! Enjoy 🙂

Rihanna-Victoria-Secret-Fashion-Show-2012

Apparently the designer of the outfit on the left came up with it 2 hours before the show started! Rihanna came in for her fitting and it didn’t look good so they started right from scratch. She SLAYED both of her performances..doutzen-candice-vsfw-show-09

One of my favorites! Candice%20Swanepoel,%20Justin%20Bieber,%20Erin%20Heatherton

As much as we all hate Justin Bieber this is a great one! Luckiest guy on earth, right? Just in this moment though.

Black Fleece Herringbone V-Neck Sweater $995

While surfing the Barney’s website I came across this amazing sweater. I’m in love with the thick dark navy bottom of the sweater. It’s a classic look for any guy. I say this a lot, but this is something that should be in everyone’s closet. This is the perfect choice for Christmas Day dinner, isn’t it? I thought so. Thiiiiis is what I want right now! Someone get it for me for Christmas??

What I Want Wednesday 12.12.12.

What I Want Wednesday (WIWW) is a weekly feature on Bergdorf’s and Bow Ties. It is a collection of carefully curated pieces, falling together to create the most flawless of all wardrobes.

This week’s piece is a beautiful array of floral and pastels. The high cut neckline makes it professional enough to wear to work and classy enough to show off on a date.

Lela RoseFloral-Jacquard Sheath Dress $1,395

While some may say it is more of a summer time piece I think with the right pair of tights, blazer and pumps it could definitely be worn year-round. The silk in the dress falls wonderfully on almost anyone and the darker floral embellishment on the dress draws attention to the waist by creating the illusion of a sash.

This floral piece is definitely what I’m wanting this Wednesday, check back next week for more of what I’m loving.

Burberry Womens Trench

I fell in love with Burberry Trench coats a few years ago. When I was in San Francisco this past spring I tried one on and it only confirmed the love I had for this particular coat.

Burberry  J9

Buckingham Cat Trenchcoat $1,095     Cotton Satin Trenchcoat $2,095

Burberry offers a variety of coats, all of them stunning. I’m more of a classic gal so I tend to lean towards coats like the Cotton Satin Trench.

Burberry  J91

Single Breasted Poplin Trench $1,195       Lace Trench $1,116    

There are more casual coats, and more dressy coats, something for every occasion. Whether it’s the ballet, a dinner out with friends or you’re leaving work after  along day at the office, your Burberry Trench will always make you look and feel stylish.

The Good Kind of Acne

After I posted about Nudie jeans one of my best friends introduced me to Acne. Founded in Stockholm in 1996, one of their main goals was to develop a lifestyle brand of clothing. Well, they’ve definitely done that if you ask me! As you know, I’m a fan of raw denim and after I bought a pair of Nudies in September I’m hooked. Acne takes raw denim to a whole new level in my opinion. Free of logos and tacky stitching they are the ultimate look for denim. Screen Shot 2012-12-09 at 9.34.52 PM

Roc Lana Blue Slim $230 Roc Maxsan Slim $350

The classic look of the blue jean is in full swing with our first pair. Perfect for a day out shopping or a night out at the local pub. With a sweater or a blazer it’s the perfect casual choice. I’m really loving the color of the second pair. They’re almost an indigo blue and I can’t get enough of them. I need to find a pair like this!!!

Max Raw Slim $200 Max Satin Black $200

Black denim is so under rated. It needs to become a staple in everyone’s closet and at that price, how could you not?! Both are black but one has a bit of a metallic sheen to it making it almost a charcoal grey color (depending on the light I’m sure). The satin black denim would go perfectly with a dress shirt, bow tie and a nice blazer. Boys, listen up! This is what you should wear to the Christmas party you were invited to! You’ll have girls (or guys) all over you! Trust me 😉
