Ladies, Ladies, Do You Wanna Roll In My Mercedes?

3 Nov

Skye and I have been reviewing the Mercedes Benz Fall Fashion week for the spring 2013 collections. Let me tell you, we have much to rejoice. The runway was littered with PLENTY of little beauties that we can’t wait to help you re-create. While the runway can get a little fantastical, some very talented designers worked very hard to come up with some beautiful and totally street wearable styles. We’ll be posting plenty of MBFFW13 (Mercedes Benz Fall Fashion Week for Spring 2013) reviews, so check back and stay informed. 😉

While every designer is different and has their own personal flair, there we’re some definite trends on the runway that are going to be spring musts. But why wait for spring? This years MBFFW13 had plenty of versatile styles that we think you can rock for fall and winter.


Dark Romantic- This year we saw a TON of dark, punky, romantic clothing. Which we’re loving. While a couple years ago your mom would have called you a “goth” for sporting black nail polish, now a little “black magic” can be very polished and alluring. Designers like BCBGMAXAZRIA, Rachel Zoe, Calvin Klein, Jill Stuart, Phillip Lim, and Herve Leger all rocked the runway with “black beauties”. While this was the Spring 2013 we prefer to save the dark looks for fall and winter and reserve spring for the brighter looks.

 Runway: Calvin Klein

Dress-Goodwill $7 + Shoes-Garage Sale $3 + Stockings-Target $3 + Headband-forever21 $5

Grand total= $18

See Through Stunners- Another look that’s been trending for a while is pieces comprised of flowy sheer fabric as well as lace. Extremely soft and romantic this trend is doable all year round. Diane Von Furstenberg, Marchesa, Jason Wu, Carolina Herrera, and Jill Stuart were just a few of the designers to utilize light airy materials.
