|Market Appointment: Deivie Spring 2015 Collection|
NYC based designer, Christina Mannino presented the Deivie S/S 15 collection at the Repop in the Chelsea art district last week. This collection debuted Christina collaboration with Brooklyn street artists, AINAC. One of my favorite looks was the quilted satin jack with perforated leather sleeves, the back hand-tagged by AINAC with their signature "ART IS NOT A CRIME". The collaboration with was actually fitting for Deivie, as Christina said, the collection chronicles the life of a socialite who secretly moonlights as a street artist. The Deivie woman maybe be a street artist but she is covering it very well with her charm.

|Inspected Trend: Spring Stripes (Victoria Beckham, Altuzarra, Marni)|
Fashion Month has officially ended, now I have time to gradually look over the trends that had the strongest presence. The first inspected trend is Spring Stripes. Stripes is a basic print that is season-less. However what I loved was the variations of the stripes, some were thick and bold as other were more abstract. I'm also digging the stripe skirts, this will be on my Spring must-have list for next year.
How do you feel about the Spring Stripes trend?
|Aerie's Bra Guide|
Aerie, the little sister of American Eagle Outfitters that carries lingerie and apparel has a full Bra fit guide perfectly titled, 9 Bras That Every Girl Needs, see below. One of the many challenges that women face is finding the right bra. Statistics roughly states that 70-85% of women are wearing the wrong size bra, which I'm not surprised. The fit guide telsl you to change your bras every 6 months because our body change and the bra gets worn out. As woman, I'm definitely guilty of not changing my bra every 6 months. I figure if it still fits and it's comfortable, I'm keeping it (I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one that thinks the same). But the bra guide is actually helpful and has all the tips and illustrations you need to figure out what type of bra you need. You canread more on bra fittings on Aerie's blog.

|Karolyn Pho Spring/Summer 2015 Runway Show|
Where: Pier 59, NYC
Overall: Designer Karolyn Pho's fifth collection definitely had story that she wanted everyone to see. The Pho's Girl for the Spring/Summer '15 seaon is a nomad, a traveler basically one that forgot her self-preception. In classic Pho form, she dabbled in the menswear details such a double breast lab coat paired with nurse clogs. This collection served a clean slate for the designer where she showcased her flow of feminitity and innocence.
