last time around

In a few days, a good chunk of the blogosphere will be hit with the omgitsnyfw virus. Our feeds will be flooded with links to live streams, pretty pictures of drool worthy restaurants and eateries, inspirational street style shots, the what-I-would-wear to fashion week outfits, and last but not least, posts about the actual shows. At first it's all exciting and new to see what's coming up in the new season, but I'm not going to lie that I do get overwhelmed at points, and end up stop reading said blogs for a few days or even weeks. Then there's the whole criticism of fashion bloggers at NYFW spiel, sparked by Suzy Menkes, from last year-- which honestly I have difficulty picking a side on. But what does this whole tangential paragraph have to do with anything?? Basically, I will be enjoying NYFW from the comfort of my bed, taking it in reasonable fixes so not to OD. One sort of new comer to the game is Nellie Partow, who has been designing for a few years but is making her NYFW debut this time around. Her pieces below, which are from her past fall collection, are to simply put it: perfection. Shades of grey and black mixed in with an inkling of military green and deep burgundy. All so sleek. Can I have them? Now to behold what she'll bring us for the spring season on the runway.

  1. Ok, that cable-chain kinda sweater dress is too perfect. Amazing!


  2. Never heard of her before, but really loving the pieces. Particularly the first two combos.

  3. I've never heard of her but I'm going to check her out now. I really like all of the pieces you put up here - They're beautiful!

  4. So elegant! I love the jackets, sleek shape.


  5. What a nice spin on it :) These outfits are all amazing! Love the jacket from the first two.

  6. I don't know how I feel about NYFW yet. I entered a contest to win a ticket to go, but I'm scared!! So. Much. Overwhelm. Also, don't know how I feel about over-sized coats this season... but I AM excited for all the olive green everywhere!!

  7. Omg, her stuff is so frigging slick and badass at the same time!! I love the top right one, that's my favorite!

  8. Love the oversized coats.

    And I'll be enjoying NYFW from my bed, as well! Ha! :)


  9. Wow, love these looks. I'm a huge fan of the coat at the top... and now I really want hot pink pants even though I know I'm too chicken to try them myself! :)

  10. I'm mostly nodding in agreement. Not being in America and mostly not immersed in the fashion world (though maybe I'd like to be but day job says otherwise) it's less of a thing here. Still, excited to see what goes down the runways - oversaturation last year did put me off a bit though. But mostly my own fault for subscribing to so many channels.

    That neck-brace-snood-hybrid thing is strangely appealing!
