BTS Fall 2020 Market

March 11, 2020

A little less than a month ago I was in NYC scouting out all of the beautiful pieces for Fall 2020! Now that I have completed and written all of my orders, I wanted to share with you all a little behind the scenes look of everything I saw and did while in NYC for market. I was only there for 3 days so there wasn’t much time for play and my schedule mainly consisted of appointments, appointments, and more appointments. 🙂 Which honestly I love. Buying is one of my most favorite things about my job! It is so rewarding to see a whole season come together and to pre-buy amazing pieces with my wonderful customers in mind. Below are some of my favorite appointments and pieces that I saw. Enjoy and let the countdown begin!

Allude cashmere is always a highlight but always my toughest appointment. Take one look at the below color card and you will quickly realize why it is hard to make decisions at this appointment. There are so many amazing color options and silhouettes. I always have a hard time narrowing down my Allude order because I LOVE it all and I know how wearable their pieces are.

Below are a few on my favorites from Allude for Fall 2020. I love a great turtleneck and the one below was such a great weight. I ordered it in this pretty green color but also ordered it in hot pink! How fun will that be? The other two sweaters I kept neutral and I loved them because of their detailing. These are the types of sweaters you reach for over and over again and will live in all Fall/Winter!

 

Another favorite appointment is Red Valentino. They never disappoint and for Fall 2020 they took their outerwear game to a whole new level. I ordered a good bit of coats/jackets with them because they were all so beautiful and classic. How gorgeous are the below pieces? I am a sucker for a gorgeous red jacket. I have one by Red Valentino that I have had for over a decade and still love it. I thought the middle coat and the pink/purple colorway would be such a pretty pop of color during the cold weather months. Annnddd can we have a moment of silence for this tan leather trench? It is a little pricey and definitely an investment piece but it was too killer not to order.

 

The below lavendar lace trench coat was another jaw dropper. This piece might be one of my favorites from this market.

 

Red Valentino always does great capes and I love that this season they incorporated a fun pleating on the entire backside of the cape! So interesting and dramatic!

 

Ulla Johnson is always at the top of the list market after market and Fall 2020 was no exception. Animal print is going to remain big for the Fall which you all know I am thrilled about. Ulla always has the most gorgeous fabrics. The middle dress is actually a super soft knit and I ordered it in 3 colors. The green dress is made from an Italian fabric that is out of this world.

 

Ulla also did this purple colorway in the Italian fabric and I literally died over every piece in this group. I ordered both colors and various silhouettes for the store so be prepared to be wowed when these pieces arrive later this year!

 

I always love Saloni and their prints. Below were just a few of my favorite dresses by them for Fall 2020.

 

Zimmermann is one of my favorite designers that I carry at Mosaic because of its romantic and feminine aesthetic. It was so pretty for Fall and the jumpsuit below was so amazing. It is a deep purple velvet, double breasted, and has a flare leg. What more could a girl want? They always have the most flattering jumpsuits and I know this one is going to be stunning on whoever the lucky girl is who snags it when it comes in.

 

Zimmermann had A LOT of animal/exotic prints and I was literally like a kid in a candy shop viewing this collection. Below are two amazing and versatile dresses and a matching blouse and pants set.

 

L’Agence is a new line at Mosaic but has quickly become one of my favorites. The fit of their pieces is like no other and that is such a hard thing to do! I especially love their blazers and I clearly loved all the variations they had for Fall. All of the styles below will be arriving later this year.

 

Their Kenzie double breasted blazer is my favorite cut and they offered it in LEATHER (gasp)! I loved it in the black but opted to get it in the softer cognac color. How gorgeous is this going to be? I may or may not have ordered one of these for myself:)

 

I saw a good bit of new potential lines and am excited to introduce you all to the 3 new additions we will have at Mosaic this Fall. The first is Ba&sh. They had so many amazing dress (Y’all know I love a good easy dress) and some of the cutest knits.

 

I have been on the search for a great special occasion line that was well made but at reasonable price point and I found it. We will be welcoming ML Monique Lhuillier this Fall and I couldn’t be more excited. They had some truly stunning pieces for evening wear and the prices were amazing!

 

The last new addition is Farm Rio. I am very very excited about this line. I looked at it last market but just couldn’t pull the trigger. Well after viewing Fall, I knew it was time to bring this line to Mosaic. Their pieces are very colorful, fun, and whimsical and are also an extremely great price point!

 

I am a creature of habit when it comes to the restaurants I like to frequent when I am in town but this trip I did try a new spot. I have been wanting to eat at Restoration Hardware’s rooftop restaurant strictly for the views and how beautiful it looked in person. This trip I was able to meet a great friend there for dinner one night and it was awesome! I have been to several Restoration Hardware locations and they are all stunning. I could move right in. This meatpacking location has an amazing glass elevator that scales the height of the entire building…. GOALS!

 

You take the elevator all the way up and you walk out and are greeted with the below view. It definitely speaks my language and has such a cool vibe.

 

Aside from the decor, the food was really good. We sipped on bellini’s and started with the burrata appetizer. We couldn’t decide on entree’s so we decided to split the burger and the lobster roll which was perfect and so tasty. The truffle fries obviously weren’t too shabby either. I will leave you with these mouth watering pictures and hope you enjoyed seeing a sneak peek into all the goodness that is to come for Fall 2020! Until next market!

Red Valentino Love Celebration Embroidered Dress

How We Style-Ulla Johnson Abelia Dress

February 22, 2019

This month for our How We Style series we are going to show you 3 ways to style this gorgeous Ulla Johnson Abelia Dress. What’s not to love about this dress? Great color…check…..easy silhouette….check……versatile….check! We could go on and on. With this being a longer style, a lot of people are unsure of how to style it. Check out the pictures below to see 3 unique looks that can be achieved with the Abelia dress.

The first way we styled it was with a pair of white booties (all the rage right now), a cool belt, and some fun earrings. Because this style is very flowy it completely changes the look when you belt it to a more curve showing silhouette. This could be worn during the day and most definitely transition into evening.

Second, because the fabric tends to read dressy, we wanted to show you how to make it more casual for day. We paired it with casual accessories and with a fun high pony tail which instantly makes it look more laid back but clearly still fabulous.

 

Lastly, we went for a strictly evening look. This dress has a gold thread running through out and I think with the right accessories could even be worn for a cocktail party. We paired it with a glitzy heel, fun small bag and some dressy earrings. A low sleek pony tail adds a touch of sophistication to this look.

 

We will leave you with a picture of Molly Sims spotted in this dress and she paired it with a Gucci fanny pack. See, the options are endless! 🙂
