Fall is a few days away and I’d like a new wardrobe. (Who wouldn’t?)
Maybe it’s the season when people look most polished and put together, not just flip flopping in summer T’s and shorts. It’s always admirable to see someone who has beautiful style, who always looks nice. Enter Ms. Nicole Richie! Seems she is everywhere these days and she always looks amazing. Last week she launched her Nicole Richie for Macy’s Impulse Collection, as part of their ongoing designer series.
Maybe I’m late to the game, because Nicole has been a fashion icon for a while, but now that she’s been introduced to the masses via Macy’s, and the recent Fashion Star TV Show, among all her ventures, I am a fan.
She is a smart girl with a unique style. They call her look “boho chic” and even though that’s not really my personality, there is something about the way she combines textures and prints that makes me want to look like a “new bohemian.”
Last week Macy’s held an introductory mini fashion show/breakfast for the launch of her collection at Glendale Galleria. We had a chance to see everything up close and mingle with style experts and models. And we loved every single piece.
I’m torn between choosing just a few items, but I’m sticking with the dresses. They are a fabulous deal at $69 dollars, and thumbs up to Macy’s and Nicole for keeping it real, since the range of prices is from $39 to $129, which is a pretty nice price for the rest of us.
One of the dresses reminded me of a dress my Mother used to wear in the 80’s. It had a similar look and feel to it. Se parecía mucho y me dió un flashback. No wonder, since Nicole has shared that her Mother, Brenda Richie is her influence, and she’s always looked up to her for inspiration, and to borrow the Azzadine Alaia’s from her closet…(que padre, no?)
Here are a few pictures of the fashion and the event.
