Although it may be getting chilly outside…Let’s recap on some of my fave sunny Spring/Summer 2012 Collections

Here are some of my favorite 2012 Spring/Summer Collections videos I just had to post and share.

Grab a hot coco if you’d like & sit back, relax, & enjoy.

(Couldn’t resist only putting one of Oscar de la Renta’s Spring/Summer 2012 collections, had to include the Resort Collection.)

Now, many of my friends have told me in the past, that some of the stuff on the runways is crazy, and stuff they’d NEVER wear. However I like to tell them to keep in mind, although many of the fashions that are displayed in fashion shows aren’t pieces everyone would like to actually wear, I can certainly find elements that will and are being incorporated into our everyday fashions whether we take notice or not. Some of my friends truly admire the fashions they see on the runway, but think they could never pul it off themselves. When I point them out, suddenly it’s like I can see the light bulb above their head turn on as they flash a smilez at me. Helping my maybe-not-so-fashion-informed friends out always brings me joy.

So if you’re someone who think they don’t have the best up-to-date fashion out there, hopefully this has inspired you to be on the lookout for the latest and upcoming trends & possibly help you incorporate a little something something in your wardrobe collection! (; If not, hopefully watching the fashion shows & just admiring has been entertaining! (:

This will be my last post from behind-the scenes covering Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim Miami 2012. It was such an amazing and fun experience. Both the models, designers, backstage managers–everyone– were incredibly friendly.

If anyone I’ve met there miraculously happens to be reading this right now, THANK YOU! Everyone was amazing & I can’t wait for the next time we’ll meet again.

All the swim apparel from Diesel, White Sands Australia, Poko Pano, Beach Bunny, Crystal Jin, L*Space by Monica Wise, Wildfox Swim, Caffé Swimwear, Dolores Cortés, Mara Hoffman, Aqua Di Lara, A.Ché, Norma Kamali, Red Carter, CIA.Martima, Luli Fame, LUXE by Lisa Vogel, Lisa Blue, DiNelia Brazil, A.Z Arujo, Aguaclara, Aquarella, Have Faith Swimwear, Kooey Swimwear Australia, Nicolita, Sonia Vera Swimwear, Jogo Beach, Perfect Tan Bikini, Tavik, & Zingara… were all absolutely stunning. It was torture seeing all the new swimwear and not being able to wear them myself just yet. I would’ve loved to be caught in any of their looks, especially in beautiful South Beach Miami.
