We shall have all eternity in which to celebrate our victories, but we have only one swift hour before the sunset in which to win them.” –Robert Moffat
If you don’t know designer Gareth Hugh, wait I mean Pugh’s name, then today’s your lucky day. But first things first! Our Bites Of Style word for today is Waste
What does Waste mean to you?
There’s nothing like the icy temperatures of winter to make you see a new perspective. Don’t you just hate it when you’re not prepared for a challenge? Yeah, I hear you! I forgot my gloves on my morning run, and now my hands are FREEZing. OUCH. Then I thought, “Maybe I should give up and go home! Then I remembered I can do all things through CHRIST who strengthens ME. Instead of TURNING back towards home, I could Turn my MIND around and focus on my goal!
Today, I am thankful for the opportunity to RUN. Thankful that all my body parts are covered minus my hands. Thankful that I have lived in Germany ( one of the coldest places on earth) and my body should be used to this weather. I’m thankful for the opportunity to spend time alone with God. So prepared or not, I will not WASTE this opportunity from God. I will Maximize this Moment and do my very BEST.
The Biteaway: Don’t talk yourself out of any opportunities, instead #MaximizeEveryMoment
Ephesians 5: 15-17 So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. 16 Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days. 17 Don’t act thoughtlessly, but understand what the Lord wants you to do
How will you maximize the moments you have left today?
Today is Day #2 of Paris Fashion Week YEAH. I love Paris and can’t wait to get back someday. But for now, my living room floor is being turned into a FASHION WEEK War Room. My family can’t contain their excitement, right? Wrong- well my son shares my excitement and has offered to help with my Gareth Pugh fashion concept board ( see the photo, creative)! But back to Paris Fashion Week. This week, I will be showcasing looks from some of my favorite designers from Paris Fashion Week. Please leave a comment below if you are inspired by anything you read or see. I would love to hear from you.
Gareth Pugh AW 2014-2015 collection
The unconventional elaborate designs of Gareth Pugh, are the perfect twist between whimsical-modern and sculptural luxury. He never designs for the masses, but always manages to capture the attention of practically everyone. He’s talented beyond measure and I can’t wait to see what he designs next.
Here are some of my favorite looks from today’s show in Paris.

Although we can’t all afford this luxury clothing line; I still adore Chanel Couture. The pieces are classic, impeccably made, and should last a lifetime. A homage was paid to Coco Chanel circa 1932 this week at Paris Fashion week. Chanel Couture is expensive and not in every working girls budget, however Chanel often sets the trends for other designers.
The show titled ” New Vintage” produced the reworking of Chanel’s classics in a way that showcased the extraordinary handwork of the house’s ateliers. “My own suits from 30 years ago, you can buy them like vintage now,” Lagerfeld said. “‘New Vintage’ is a proposition for something that could last — at least I hope so,” he said. “This is the same attitude, the same spirit, the same name, same concept — but something for our time. Vintage — but it’s not vintage yet.
Last year the collection focused on the color blue this year the palette of storm-cloud grays and dreamy sugar pinks were showcased. Karl showed classic Chanel suits and coat-dresses with their tops cut on the cross and their skirts on the bias giving them some movement. The evening outfits made with shreds of chiffon, tulle and laser-cut fabrics were used for exquisite patchwork effects. The evening looks reminded me of a starry fall night in Paris . Pewter stockings, platinum shoes, and black velvet gypsy-tiered dresses added some drama to the show. Here are some of my favorite looks for fall I hope you enjoy the collection. Look out Monday for another giveaway. Have a stylish and safe weekend. Photos from style.com
