I had the great pleasure of attending the Secret Garden Fashion Show at Macy’s hosted by the fabulous Christopher Macken on Friday. Spring has finally arrived and so have the spring trends! We received a glimpse of what will be hot this season.
Eagerly anticipating the show….
Guests enjoyed light hors d’oeuvres including scrumptious mini strawberry cupcakes, drinks, and music.
I have never been a huge fan of lace but this little swing top number was too cute for words. I love the pop of color from these covetable orange wedges.
Another adorable example of the lace trend and also the bohemian trend with this Free People dress. I love the flat gladiator sandals! A must-have addition to my closet!
I’m a girl that loves a great jumpsuit and will definitely be rocking them this season. This look is ultra chic in black and white. The glamorous hat will have people wondering ‘who’ you are…..
These shoes!!! #stevemadden!!
There will be more mixing prints this spring. I would have never thought to pair floral sandals with a snakeskin print romper but it really works.
Ahhhh….pastels and florals. Nothing else says spring like this lovely combo.
Here I am posing with the wonderful Christopher Macken
I had the wonderful opportunity to meet a talented designer at her trunk show held at House of Couture Boutique in Buckhead. Ashley R. Ryles is the beauty and brains behind her label AR’RYLES which features meticulously crafted designer pencil skirts. Ashley is a graduate of the Miami International University of Arts & Design and has interned with the esteemed label, Badgley Mischka. She is now based in New York but has roots in Atlanta. She has lived in Miami and Europe as well which has helped broaden her keen fashion sense which is evident in her designs.
April McRae, the owner of House Couture was a gracious host for this fabulous event. Her shop is located on Bennett Street in the heart of Buckhead. She carries chic, edgy, one-of-a-kind clothes that will catch the eye of any fashionista. Next time you’re in the area stop by and tell her I sent you
Ashley really kept the curves of a woman’s body in mind when designing her skirts. They are fitted in the waist and curve naturally with the hips before tapering at the bottom just below the knee. If you look closely, you can see the seam she has created carving out the hip area. It’s a look that is flattering on a full-figured woman or it can accentuate the curves on a smaller frame. My favorite is the gold leather over lay skirt pictured above but they are all super sexy!
In the picture below, I’m here with the ladies in our AR’RYLES skirts. It’s so funny to me how I look like I’m standing in a hole between these two glamazons, London, Ashley’s sister and Ashleyon the right.
