As much as I love attending runway shows, you often miss the details when the models are wafting past you and the person in front of you is taking pics on their ginormous iPad.  So it was lovely to see Oscar de la Renta post a multitude of detail photos of the clothing and accessories from their Spring 2015 […]

Chic on the Street

09 . 08 . 14

As everyone knows, some of the best looks each fashion week aren’t on the runways.  The street style looks are also looking much better this season.  Maybe it’s because it’s been so hot.  I think the weather has also been the reason we’re seeing so much white after Labor Day too. Gotta get it in […]

Fashion at Home

Fashion designer Adam Lippes presented his Spring 2015 collection in his duplex on Washington Square Park on Saturday. It was the perfect backdrop to his elegant and interesting designs. Too bad all fashion shows aren’t this chic. To view all the Adam Lippes looks for Spring 2015, check out Style.com and to read more about […]

Fashion Week Flash

It’s only Day 2 of New York Fashion Week but we’ve already seen a lot of great looks.  It’s so hot and steamy in the city right now that I wish I could wear most of them right now.  A white dress should be at the top of your shopping list for Spring 2015 but […]

Fashion Week Kickoff

09 . 04 . 14

New York Fashion Week kicked off last night with a fete at Gracie Mansion and I noticed a theme among a few of the designers.  Jenna Lyons of J.Crew, Ralph Lauren, and Carolina Herrera all wore grey and white.  A great way to transition your white pieces for after Labor Day. I’ll be attending all […]

More Magical Maine

08 . 31 . 14

When I was thinking about what to post for the Labor Day holiday weekend, I couldn’t think of anything better than these photos of model Hilary Rhoda and Masters of Sex star Teddy Sears in Maine. They appeared in American Vogue in November 2013 and Vogue Australia in January 2014 and  epitomize preppy American chic. If […]

Even though it’s supposed to be 90 degrees in New York tomorrow, I’m shopping the fall collection that just debuted on Emerson Fry. It’s filled with cozy sweaters and chic coats as well a few pairs of lust worthy shoes and boots. Just as lovely as the clothes is the home in which they shoot […]

Due to a scheduling conflict the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards were broadcast on a Monday night which threw everyone off.  But luckily the celebrities and their stylists weren’t thrown off.  Almost all of the presenters and nominees looked lovely but it was Lizzy Caplan above who stole the show.  Lizzy usually plays the comedic […]

While the sales are going on now in Paris, it’s only a twice a year occurrence.  I miss regular mark downs and deals.  Good thing I can shop online at places like Nordstrom Rack where new styles are added each day and are up to 70% off. I can also shop in my pajamas in […]

I know I said I’d post what I was packing for Paris and I swear I’ll try to get to it soon.  I feel a little out of sorts living in my friend’s apartment. Hopefully, I will get on a good schedule once I get my own place. I’m taking these first two weeks as […]

I always think of HATCH for their maternity wear but after visiting their pop up shop on Howard Street, I realize it’s not just for moms.  At the press breakfast, both my friend Alice Ryan and Serena Dugan of Serena & Lily were wearing a navy silk jumpsuit that looked like it was from a […]

It seems like everyone is pregnant these days from the Duchess of Cambridge to Kim Kardashian.  If you are also expecting, then do I have a giveaway for you!  HATCH Collection is generously offering one lucky Habitually Chic reader a $500 gift certificate to their site.  It’s full of great pieces of chic, timeless, and comfortable […]

What I Wore

09 . 13 . 12

Yesterday was my last full day of fashion week and I decided to go out with a bang. I wore a black dress to the Harper’s Bazaar breakfast but when everyone else went off to Michael Kors show, I decided to go shopping for a new afternoon outfit.  I headed over to the J.Crew Collection […]

I’m going to attempt to recap each day at the Spring 2013 shows at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.  We’ll see how far I get due to exhaustion and lack of time.  But I can tell you what happened on Day One.  I missed my first two shows for various reasons.  I managed to get some […]
