Finally, some time for retail therapy, one of my favorite things to do in Paris! First stop: Comme des Garçons. What do you think? Pretty flattering, wouldn’t you say?

I’ve been really looking forward to catching up with Brian Phillips of Black Frame, the PR agency who handles the Pop-In @Nordstrom press. We found this super-yummy Spanish place in the 2nd called Da Rosa. So excited to have a salad after all the pastries, breads, and croissants I’ve been eating.

And then off to Prada, where I fell in love with this necklace of gorgeous green feathers. Then I had a genius idea! If I can make it a headband, it’s a 2-in-1! Reminded me of one of the first shoots that Corinne Day did with Kate Moss. You know the one?

And a last-night pizza party with the boys—Joey & James, Ben and our fave: Zac of VFILES, who partnered with us for the Heartbreakers Club! Strath was there too, but he’s hiding behind the pizza box. (JK, he’s taking the pic!)

And I’m off. My room’s a mess. I have 20 minutes to pack. And it’s not all going to fit! C’est la vie! See ya back in Seattle!

Check out our latest all-menswear Pop-In, Heartbreakers Club, and take a peek at what Olivia Kim‘s loving right now.

Prada Backstage Fall 2014We caught the action backstage at Prada‘s art-deco-inspired show at Milan Fashion Week. Creative director Miuccia Prada cited the cutting-edge films of German director Rainer Werner Fassbinder as a primary source of inspiration, reflected in graphic prints, shearling overcoats and a moody palette full of purples and reds.

It’s pretty clear that the moto jacket is here to stay, and I love how many different versions of this classic cut we’ve seen here in London.

Nicole keeps her look monochromatic and minimal. Her bejeweled blouse adds a femme touch and that bright box clutch gives the ensemble a pop of color. However, it’s Nicole’s amazing boots that steal the show!

Anna Cottrell’s mix of punky leather and classic suiting is such a clever way to beat the weather and add some serious modern edge to pink tweed. This Arkansas native is currently a blogger (tulip.louise), but she’s spent years honing her style skills in the fashion industry. She says she loves to experiment with trends, and I have to say, I love the results!

I was thrilled to run into Michelle Smith, the designer of Milly. Michelle said she had an amazing show, but she was glad to take a breath and enjoy Fashion Week from another perspective. Of course, Michelle’s personal style is super-chic. I am totally enamored by her iridescent skirt and voluminous fur coat, and her leopard accessories add a playful pop of print. Thanks for sharing a moment with us, Michelle!

Assistant to the popular Chinese fashion blogger Peter Xu, Yu Meng sports a red pout and standout tights to match, accenting her soft leopard-print cardigan and watercolor shirt dress. What can I say? This colorfully textured combo makes a street-chic statement.

Warmest regards,

Miroslava Duma is in the top 5 of the most in-demand street style stars. If she attends a show, you can bet every photographer in the vicinity will run her down for a shot. Considering the craziness that surrounds her, she’s remarkably composed and gracious.

Miro has impeccable, cutting-edge taste and she changes her look for every show, so it’s always an exciting surprise to see what she comes up with next.

Welcome back to The Thread, Ella! Ella hails from London, but always makes sure to attend NYFW. Her blog only gets more popular with every passing season, thanks to Ella’s retro-modern, feminine style.

I love the simplicity of Ella’s styling, and that bright floral shift is to die for!

Jade said she’s loving every minute of Fashion Week. As a personal style blogger (A Spoonful of Style), she goes to the shows for inspiration and to generate content for her site.

Her baby-blue romper is super cute and summery. Silver stilettos and statement jewels dress up the look. Jade is also a hairdresser, which explains her perfect waves, despite the crazy humidity of NYC!
