NYFW F/W 2014: Rebecca Minkoff

The fusion of music and fashion has always been harmonious. And this Fashion Week, the music has been top notch. However, nobody killed it quite as well as Brit pop artist, ALUNAGEORGE, during the Rebecca Minkoff runway show.

Rebecca Minkoff’s Fall 2014 collection introduces the notion of modern practicality, opting for a simpler, more understated approach to dressing. With an emphasis on clean lines and harmonious separates, Minkoff’s vision of the contemporary woman shines through: She strikes a balance between masculine and feminine with confident ease.

The beauty looks were stunning - dark Lorde-esque lips with two tone nails and bodacious blow outs. The perfect metallics and patent accessories with gorgeous slouchy beanies stole the show and everyone is mad about plaid for next season! The collection redefines classic menswear through feminine colors and softer silhouettes. Tailored Crombie coats, boyish trousers, and sharp button-downs get the ladylike treatment as they are slimmed-down and shown in a palette of soft grey, petal pink, noble green, navy, and tobacco. The essence of the empowered working woman embodies everything Rebecca Minkoff designs and styles for. Effortlessly chic and totally tailored.

Socialyte.co Hosts Bloggers Lounge


We had a fantastic time at the Bloggers Brunch yesterday presented by Socialyte.co at the beautiful Caravan Stylist Studio. The exclusive event, which only invited about 50 guests (yes, we felt special!) was held in a sprawling loft in midtown. Bloggers upon bloggers mingled with industry folk while tweeting about anything and everything within their camera’s zooming grasp. Yes, as bloggers, we are all about the tweeting, however, this was a whole new level of social media. Why, you ask? Because every product that a blogger tweeted about at the event, they got to take home with them! Yes, so unbelievable, but so true! And no, these products were not 2 oz. samples of soaps and fragrances, they were handbags by Rebecca Minkoff, shoes by Chinese Laundry, Ulta makeup products, hangover juices, you name it! Suzanna (aka Zanna) co-founder of GreenHouseofFashion.com, even stated at one point “this is so effortless, I almost feel gluttonous by just having to tweet to get free products when I would probably be doing it anyway!”

Not Your Typical Neon

Neon is making a victory lap and a successful comeback this spring in all sorts of ways. It made an appearance a few seasons ago, and of course we all remember its big hit in the electric eighties, but is it possible that this somewhat tacky look has come to our spring 2012 making a classy third appearance?

We here at Joonbug have found a few neon favs for this spring that could definitely make the once-was cheap trend, turn into a fashion forward chic look.

Check out our favorite bright pieces that made the Not Your Typical Neon list in the slideshow!

A Grand Purse-chase

Buying a nice bag can be tricky. There are those purses that can cost over $3000 and will break your bank account, and then there are totes that ring in at under $100 and will, well, just break period. So what’s a good budget when buying a nice bag? Our thinking is that you want to get something nice that will last (translation: over $200), but that doesn’t make your rent check bounce (yes, that’s happened). So, we’re thinking of spending no more than a grand. Good news: we scoured our fave designers' collections and found MANY amazing bags in this price range. See our picks below!
