Golden Girl Nicole Richie at CFDA..

I often wake up in the morning, guzzle my
Evian water..(best water in the world) and start flipping through  Flipboard on my Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0. I screen shot..and note several items a day that inspire me in some way.

I was scanning through my inspiration this morning and though I would share my CFDA notes with you.  Just so you know, I have never been known for my handwriting.. or drawing a straight line for that matter.  I’ve learned to live with it.


A quick post on my faves from the 2013 CFDA awards that took place  at NYC’s Lincoln Center Monday night.

Out of sheer laziness today I am quoting directly from the CFDA website for those of you who are not familiar with their purpose.

The Council of Fashion Designers of America, Inc. (CFDA) is a
not-for-profit trade association whose membership consists of more than
400 of America’s foremost womenswear, menswear, jewelry and accessory
designers. CFDA membership is by invitation only.

The mission of the Council of Fashion Designers of America is:

  • To further the position of Fashion design as a recognized branch of American art and culture;
  • To advance artistic and professional standards within the Fashion industry;
  • To establish and maintain a code of ethics and practices of mutual benefit in professional, public, and trade relations;
  • To promote and improve public understanding and appreciation of the Fashion arts through leadership in quality and taste;
  • To create partnerships which lead to collaborative design opportunities for our Members;
  • To support the overall growth of American Fashion as a global industry.

The CFDA foundation, Inc. is a separate not-for-profit organization,
which was created to raise funds for charity and industry activities.

Okay back to my faves.. Three of my favorite designers and a couple of my favorite stars showed up nearly perfect in my eyes.

Erin Wasson was stunning in this perfectly cut Alexander Wang white gown..while Janice Aida shined in a short Theyskens’ Theory mod dress.. and of course Nicole Richie was golden from head to toe in her Marc Jacobs show stopper.

All three designs have a wonderful futuristic touch..  ADORE!!!

Is it too much to ask for all three in my wardrobe?

Have a shiny Wednesday!!
