London Fashion Week AW13 Recap

February 23, 2013


I finally had the time to sit down and digest all of London Fashion Week to share with you!  My first time covering LFW officially for Mouthful of Style was such a great experience.  I have worked fashion shows and backstage many times in my career in the industry and now covering them as well as a fashion blogger adds even more to my overall experience. For one thing, I was able to see and appreciate the full production of the shows from start to finish.  When you work a show these parts can get overlooked as you are dashing around to make sure all is in place when the clock hits time. That being said, below are my favorite show looks of the week and a few pictures I snapped from backstage and the runways.  Enjoy!

Antonio Berardi

Emilio de la Morena

Tom Ford (is back on the runways!)

Model of the moment, Cara Delevingne 

Backstage beauty

P.S.  I want to dedicate this post to one of my best friends on her wedding day.  Sending you the biggest kiss and a lifetime of happiness to you both!

Balthazar London Opening

February 20, 2013



Balthazar is opening in London's Covent Garden this week!  Perfect timing with the closing of yet another fabulous London Fashion Week.  I haven't been this excited about a restaurant opening since, well, I've been in London really that I decided it needed its own post.  The famous NYC eatery was one of my personal favorite Sunday brunch hangouts while I was living in NYC.  Officially a French brasserie with the best Salad Nicoise and Eggs Benedict I've ever had, make sure to check out the London version here and make a reservation now as the wait list is already filling up!

London Fashion Week: Zoe Jordan AW13

February 18, 2013


I've definitely been running around London over the past few days, but in a good way!  London Fashion Week premiered at 10am on Friday at Somerset House with Zoe Jordan sponsored by Vestiaire Collective and I got the best view from front and center first row!  Having heard of the designer but not too familiar with her work, I am now a follower and fan! The show was a mix of some of my favorite styles and trends: matchy-matchy tops and trousers, structured jackets, silk mixed with rougher fabrics and fun pops of color.  An extremely wearable collection staying consistent to Zoe's signature style she describes as "feminine swagger."  Ah, don't you even just love that description!

New York Fashion Week AW13 Recap

February 15, 2013

Living in NYC for years before moving to London, I have a very strong affinity towards the power woman look.  The AW13 fashion shows were a dream to me with so many new ways to celebrate the NY-woman.  Honestly, these are just A FEW of my favorite looks from the shows (also loving Victoria Beckham, Rag & Bone, Theyskens Theory...). 

The new tiny waisted power suit.

Femininity exuding strength. 

Give me that blue dress now!  And I love the barely there midriff.  So commanding.
