RAINBOWS, GLITTER & FLORAL!
Yep you heard me, rainbows, glitter and floral are all this Springs must haves and you can conveniently find everything you need at Neiman Marcus! Last Friday I attended a Spring preview and was very excited to learn about the upcoming trends, now I can share them with you all!
It was such an amazing experience, let me visually place you there. As we arrived to the event on the second level in the Cusp area we were welcomed by a gorgeous tiered tray with colorfully placed macaroons and to left were cucumber bites with tuna, deviled eggs delicately sprinkled with paprika (if you don't know this I could live off of eggs, I eat them every day and am obsessed!) and some crisp crackers with Salmon I believe. At the bar they had these beautifully created rainbow cocktails - I opted for water of course but I heard they were tasty! The food was delicious and makes me want to visit just so I can eat at Neiman Marcus Cafe/Mariposa inside of Neiman Marcus in Las Vegas!
To the right was a display of the prettiest floral dresses. I fell in love with this v-neck floral-print wrap shirtdress by Alice + Olivia. It was the softest material yet not too delicate where you would be paranoid. Definitely craving this piece in my closet! TREND: Floral Dresses
Next we had a table with statement handbags, pointed toe pumps and sparkly sneakers. This was one of my favorite tables because I am such a sucker for sparkles and handbags! My favorites are this handbag from Marc Jacobs - how could you not love this! The intricate beading, the thick strap and the structure is the icing on it all. I love a nice structured bag because you don't have to worry about it bending/items falling out. For the shoes I loved the Gucci ace saturn sneakers but I equally love the pink suede glitter Pumas! They would definitely be the focal point of any Spring outfit. TREND: Sparkle & Glitter Glam
A few steps ahead we have the accessory table that was filled with brightly colored rainbow pieces. I am obsessed with this necklace by Oscar de la Renta because how could you not love it! They are all Swarovski Crystals and it is so gorgeous in person! Very flattering on all skin tones. There were also some soft sunnies with colored lenses, of course I was drawn to the light pink rimless Ray-Bans! I thought my eyes would be visible when I put them on but they weren't which was a nice! Definitely something easy to wear! TREND: Rainbow Jewelry & Soft Sunnies (colored lenses)
Next was my favorite, Makeup! I will admit I am a Tom Ford beauty virgin so I was extra excited to learn about the products that were displayed. Aside from the package being so pretty the eyeshadows were highly pigmented and had glitter. They are meant to be applied by dabbing your finger - which was interesting but went on very well! As well there was a pretty shade and illuminate glow stick and my favorite was the Soleil Blanc Shimmering Body Oil (spray) which smelled like a beach VACATION! I couldn't stop smelling it and envisioned myself walking down a sandy beach with a white tunic looking fabulous! Im serious... you have to smell it! This is definitely on my Spring and Summer Wish List!! TREND: Bright colors!!
Last were bold, colorful stripes! Skirts, blouses, two piece sets and this stunning sequin jacket by Alice + Olivia! One side had vertical stripes and the other side had horizontal! The inside is lined and was very soft, not itchy at all! I need this in my life - I love all of the bright colors and of course the sequins!
While there I took a look around the Cusp area and I found some very bold earrings which could easily be worn and add an instant pop to your look! I regret not buying these hot pink earrings (bottom right corner!) and will probably have to make a trip back to Neiman Marcus before they sell out because they aren't online!
Overall it was a successful event and I learned a lot about the upcoming trends! I feel ahead of the game now and know what to look for when shopping and hope you do too now! Huge thank you to Christie Moeller and Neiman Marcus Las Vegas for hosting the event! I can't wait to attend more in the future.
