MOMS STRUT, Walk the Talk for a GOOD CAUSE! Mommy Angels! MBFW 2014

MOMS STRUT, They Walk the Talk for a GOOD CAUSE!:  Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring 2014  a show that is  THE BEST one, its called“Strut: The Fashionable Mom Show,” Mom's and their children walked the runway,  last night at Lincoln Center, it was rocking. People were happy and cheering on all the models. Honestly this was the most FUN fashion show I have attended in all my years of going to fashion week. I liked this show because to me it was real, authentic, and it meant something in the world we all live in. AS a Mom, wife and  Reiki Master, entrepreneur( I wear many hats) and can read and feel energy, I will tell you many "Mommy  Angels" walked the runway last night, not only looking beautiful but helping this year’s theme is “Moms Strut for a Cause.” These "Mommy Angels" as I will call them got their "bums" in high gear. They wiggled, waved, smiled, pranced, danced and made a great show. I loved  Amber Sabathia, entrepreneur, philanthropist, creator and designer of CCandy, as well as wife of the New York Yankees’ CC Sabathia (my husband LOVED chatting with him), strutted with her children for the PitCCh In Foundation, which helps inner-city youth. Other "Mommy Angels" were  Denise Albert and Melissa Musen Gerstein of The Moms, and executive produced by Stephanie Winston Wolkoff of SWW Creative were Alexis Stoudemire, wife of the New York Knicks’ Amar’e Stoudemire, actress Alysia ReinerLaura Posada, wife of retired New York Yankee Jorge Posada; NBC’s Darlene RodriguezVictoria Recaño of “Inside Edition,” and Katina Taylor, wife of former NFL star Jason Taylor.

Bloomingdale’s  styled the show, highlighting fall fashion trends from designers such as Ramy BrookJay Godfrey, Torn by Ronny Kobo, Yosi Samra, Twenty, JustFab, FabKids, Kay Unger and Zeus+Dione. I liked the fashions, each style captured a setting a Mom will be in, dressy, casual, sporty, and SEXY!!! 

The sponsors of this event were Whirlpool, Cottonelle and Vaseline "Spray and GO" moisturizer.

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week NYC Spring 2014 Runway to My World, I love PANTS!!!!

   I love MBFW, I love the kaleidoscope of colors and individual style. I get inspired and appreciate, so lets all keep creating!                             






 Week Day 1: It’s all about the pants 

BCBG Max Azria, Nicholas K, Desigual, Tadashi Shoji and Richard Chai LOVE kicked off Day 1 of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, Pants, Slacks Trousers..clam diggers, peddle pushers

whatever you want to  call them its all over the runway!  I have always loved crazy pants, yes deep down still a Prep from the 80's I certainly wore my share of maddress, whale, wide whale and Lilly. So IM loving this.

The pants all look very comfortable to wear. In my world up 10 or down LBS, I can still wear some of these styles, so all good. When I watch the beautiful tweezered legged models glide down the runway and all look fab. I

 always say if they don't look good on them NONE of us have a chance in hell to wear them. So I have to say  all the pants were a hit in my mind. Tall or petite you will be able to find a pair of fun stylish pants.

Its a must to the spring, resort shopping.

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week kicked off at Lincoln Center Thursday with spring/summer 2014 collections from big names BCBG Max Azria, Nicholas K, Desigual, Tadashi Shoji and Richard Chai LOVE.

Spring I know I will be still wearing "loud" pants but we will be seeing it all over. From printed palazzo pairs to silk trousers and high-waisted chambray options, both loose and leggy and fitted tailored styles will be on the racks. The low waited, thong underwear showing is so OVER. I just had to add that when talking about pants.

Other BCBG highlights included a super soft tunic dress, in a soft  a khaki sleeveless trench dress and sheer peek-a-boo panels on dresses and jackets.I can certainly see this on a lot of women all shapes and sizes. Cropped tops for the younger girls are still being shown, if I could I would but I will leave that up to the under 25 ladies, oh oh  this time in a tuxedo-type top styled with breezy oversized trousers

Richard Chai  layering lean pants with shirt dresses and jackets, but one look a model  did let all the fabric get the best of her, stumbling on wide leg pants.HEY lets give the model a break, its not easy and sometimes the floor or shoes are slippery, yes its happened to me when modeling, not fun and very embarrassing. Adds drama to the collection, "don't worry honey"!!! One must also remember that the concept is inspiration and will be scaled down. Runway is theater! THEATER, and Madison Ave is your runway or maybe its just your driveway, but when you feel good you look good.

The designer is making it all work without making the model look like a sack of potatoes . And he did it by mixing it up with brilliant, green and some really lovely blues. And his navy matte sequin combo made glimmer seem modern. Leather lovers will have trouble resisting the sumptuous white quilted Andrew Marc x Richard Chai moto jackets. I love leather jackets, for style purpose u can even go pleather 1/4 of the cost.

It was a mixed bag at Tadashi Shoji, where ultra feminine lattice, lace and floral embroidery collided with feathers, sequin fringe and embroidered tulle. While the girly gowns could earn a spot or two on the red carpet during awards season, the feathers  looked like a arts and craft project  from Micheal's  Craft Store. BEST been best left on the birds they came from or in the craft box. 


Barcelona-based Desigual injected some much-needed frothy fun with models skipping, shimmying and blowing kisses as they made it down the runway. The brand’s bold prints, as happy and bright as the models, embodied the company’s “La Vida es Chula” – or “Life is Cool” – philosophy. Even the most serious fashion faces couldn’t feel the happiness of the clothes, including the kooky Barcelona-city printed dress and raincoat,  floral bomber jacket with harem trousers and black and white geometric prints, proving you’re never fully dressed without a smile. I also feel the clothes can set the mood and the energy for the day. So even if your feelin "blah" these clothes will make you smile! If they made me smile watching the show they will make you smile wearing them.
