It’s Fashion Week… Do You Know Where Your Children Are?

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in NYC started on Friday morning and dozens of the best designers in the world have already sent their Fall 2008 collections down the runway. While many news outlets have been plugging the Heart Truth’s Red Dress Collection which was modeled by A-List celebrities to support and promote women’s heart health, there have been countless other newsworthy shows and designs. Here are a few…

5Saturday Morning Abaete got classy with a midnight blue strapless cocktail dress anda beautiful sweetheart neckline. The rest of the collection featured other dark blues, blacks and whites with many skirts (hitting just above the knees) and some three quarter sleeved jackets
















Diane Von Furstenberg showcased this beautiful feather dress beneath a more casual blazer, mixing browns and blaks. Both feathers and tailored jackets have made multiple appearances in fall collections this week.

On Friday, Nicole Miller let us know that we’re in for yet another fall/winter season of tights, patent leather, and ankle boots in 2008. Many designers layered up with jackets and different sleeve lengths.
And finally, my favorite so far this week has been Herve Leger by Max Azria. The collection of  dresses was virtually flawless and 100% wearable. Feathers
 reappeared (with even some of the models bangs set to look like feathers) along with horizontal stripes in a visibly constructed style and some very subtle florals. 10

Michael Kors, Calvin Klein, Zac Posen & many more to come during this excitingfashion week!

    Dear becauseisaidso,

    I really am enjoying your blog! I wish you’d post more often though! I have a question, I am 19 am 5 months pregnant, and I was wondering what your ideas are on maternity wear? It’s so hard to find cool clothes, what do you suggest? If you could post pics too, that would be AWESOME!

    Thanks becauseisaidso!

    Never had to do maternity shopping myself, but I recently saw “A Pea in the Pod” maternity wear in InStyle Magazine. I checked out their website ( and it looks good to me! Good luck
