NYFW: Coach Fall ’14 Ready to Wear Collection

Coach Fall '14 RTW_thelookbookphilosophy.com Coach RTW Fall '14_thelookbookphilosophy.com I was really curious to see what Coach would offer up for their Fall ’14 collection. I am a huge fan of previous designer, Reed Krakoff, who was replaced by British designer Stuart Vevers last year. Thankfully Krakoff has his own eponymous line, so we can still expect to see beautiful offerings from him in the future. Vevers presented a fashionably modern take on classics for the new Coach clothing line. The coats and jackets were standouts to me, especially the red and black oversized houndstooth print, and of course, I loved the bags. (The large, fringed black cross body and tri-color satchel being amongst my favorites). Even the shearling lined wedge boots were beckoning! The collection was solid and had good movement and use of color. I am looking forward to seeing what Stuart Vevers has in store for the Coach line in the future.

What do you think? Do any of these pieces strike your fancy?

3 Days of Sheer MAGIC . . . Walking the Shows Day 2

It seems crazy that I am going to be in (hot-ass) Vegas, and all my outfits consist of  long pants and jackets, but I get cold relatively easy, and it’s always freezing in the convention centers and meeting rooms!  Because my goal is to keep my feet from cramping up after walking and standing on them for hours, I think wedge hi tops are a great go-to because they are fashiony and relatively comfortable.

How do you solve the conundrum of merging comfort w/ style in your wardrobe?

3 Days of Sheer MAGIC . . . Travel Day 1

I’m gearing up for the MAGIC show in Vegas next week. I love going to industry buying shows. There is so much inspiration and it just feels great to be in the middle of all that energy. Whenever a business trip is approaching I can’t help but begin wardrobe planning in my head. Try as I might, I am NOT a light packer, so the way I go about combatting that, is to lay out a blueprint of my daytime/evening outfits in my head. I tell myself it helps me to pack more effieicntly, yet I still manage to look like I am going on an month-long pilgrimage to some far off land. No matter how much editing I do, I end up leaving the house with an oversize suitcase and a separate overnight bag (+ a purse + a bag for my laptop & work). I know it’s ridiculous. I can never seem to avoid the semi-silent chuckle and non-threatening eye roll I get from my husband when I ask him to “please honey, can you bring my suitcase downstairs?” He never fails to ask once again how long I will be gone, knowing the answer is a mere 3 days. I can see him trying to figure out “what is in this damn suitcase that weighs 40 lbs!??!” I save him the trouble of pondering and tell him “its the shoes.” Shoes can make or break an outfit. Even worse, I suffer from plantar fascitis, so I have to wear comfortable shoes when I know I am going to be doing a lot of walking. In my book, comfortable translates to ugly. Therefore, I have to switch out shoes. I have to bring cute AND comfy. And that means separate pairs. Can’t wait for the day when someone makes a cute . . . dare I even say sexy AND comfortable shoe, that exists as one whole complete package!!!! Anyway, while I am head-plotting my outfits, I thought I would share them with you. Here’s my idea for day one. (We are driving up, so comfort is key!!!!)

On second thought, considering we have had sweltering heat lately with temperatures in the triple digits, I think I might switch out the skinnies for a skirt or pair of shorts!
