Tibi

Elle’s feminine look has both modern edge and classic femininity. That pleated skirt with sequin panel is to die for and pairs perfectly with a sleek, cropped turtleneck. The soft pink coat is a great transitional piece. And of course, no look is complete without tall boots this season.

Maria’s graphic sweater caught my eye straight away. There’s something a little bit modernist–as well as nouveau southwestern–about the pattern that is really interesting. Culottes continue to dominate the street-style scene, and I love these menswear-inspired crops. The mirrored Dior sunnies are the most popular sunglasses style of the season and add some shine to this tonal look.

Linda Tol is a style superstar. She’s fearless, creative and cutting-edge. I love how Linda plays with proportion in this look. While her lines are sleek and stark, her palette is soft. Edgy black leather accessories add some classic Linda quirkiness. I’m sure we’ll be seeing a lot more of this Dutch darling as Fashion Week goes on!

Calgary-based blogger Ania Stalman (Ania.B) is no stranger to Nordstrom or The Thread. I actually ran into her on the Calgary streets years ago to snap her style, so it was a pleasure to cross paths again today! Ania looks fantastic in her retro-modern lady look. Baby pink is still going strong, especially in coats and accessories. Her wide-striped, full skirt is eye-catching and has vintage glamour. I can’t wait to see where we meet next!

The makeup look at Tibi was “pretty but not overly done” to balance the Alaskan-Inuit inspired clothing. Fresh, clean skin and illuminated cheeks were paired with a soft wash of pink on eyes (including applying blush in Nude Pink on top of white eyeshadow!) and matte pink lips in Pink Martini Lip Color (launching fall 2015). Only a hint of Everything Mascara was used to finish the look.

After a base coat, nails were applied with two coats of Nostalgia. Once dry, she then painted a curved line across the middle of the nail to tips in a new color called Doux (launching this spring). According to Choi, “It’s okay if they’re all a little different – if it curves, just go with it!”

Negin has totally mastered the modern ’70s revival. I have been on the hunt for a great suede jacket, and Negin’s fringed number is perfection. A fringed suede jacket can be tough to pull off without looking like Davy Crockett, but I’d say Negin nailed it. Her silky dress has a great pattern and I love the flowing train, which has fantastic movement in a breeze. Stiletto boots add urban femininity.

Party season, storm season: The two sure aren’t mutually exclusive. Depending on where you live, going out for a good time can be a heck of a battle, but neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night can keep Seattle-based dancer and choreographer Kisha Vaughan down. Not with these looks in the mix.

This outfit is all I want to wear for fall. A conceptual crop top, textural full skirt and slingback pumps are spot-on trends for the season. Nichelle has found the perfect colors and cuts to complement her figure. I love retro-modern silhouettes and Nichelle has totally nailed the ’50s redux look. Grazie mille, bella!

I just can’t resist taking these BFF shots, I really can’t! Nicole and Rachel are too cute to pass up. Their outfits illustrate their unique personal taste but still complement one another.

I love the blue tones (hot hue alert!) as well as their matching sandals and bold lips. The full skirt has been a winner this week in New York, and these two show us how to pull off the midi and the mini length. Nicole’s classic 3.1 Phillip Lim bag is the cherry on top.
