Nautical

IMG_5318 2

  I am really having a nautical moment…aka navy and whites are my jam. Last week, I got to spend a few days on the beautiful island of Captiva FL with my wonderful family. Nothing is better than family time, beach, ocean and salt air. Since I am pregnant I had to make a few adjustments to my beach wardrobe since nothing is quite fitting the same these days. I wanted a one-piece since I get major sunburns and didn’t want to burn that thin tummy skin. Luckily I came across a gorgeous swimsuit on Swimwear Worlds Instagram and ordered it right away. Although it isn’t a maternity swimsuit I loved the coverage and the unique overlay of the lace. I just ordered a size up and it seemed to work out! I am hoping to wear it post baby as well. For coverups I love Target, this one was […]

Flower Crush

We have all been seeing flower print all over spring fashion this year! And who doesn’t love a good flower design, especially on a cute swimsuit heading into summer :)! We got this little number from Cupshe, here is a link to a similar one. We love the different shape of this top for a change up to your typical bikini! It’s also a super comfortable cut for running around the beach and swimming in the ocean! Not to mention provides some nice coverage for busty gals but reveals enough to not be a mom suit. Although we might be shopping for those these days, nothing against them :). Of course a beach vacation, trip to the pool or swim party needs some fun accessories to really bring your suit game to the next level. Below we show off some MK pieces that will compliement any swim attire …….. MK […]

New York Bridal Week

Carolina Herrera

We love, love, LOVE our brides over here at MKaltenbach. We can’t wait for the spring and summer months to roll around so that we can start putting together designs for all the gorgeous weddings we get to be apart of! Although we like to think that it’s the jewelry that makes the bride, we won’t kid ourselves, it’s obviously the dress. This past week in New York kicked off the official start of wedding season with Bridal Fashion Week, and us, along with actual blushing brides, got to gaze upon hundreds of beautiful designer dresses all through the screens of our phones thanks to all the posting on Instagram, Snapchat and everywhere else you looked. We saw daintier designs, lace and flowers. What else did you expect!? Take a look at the looks we wish we were wearing this spring.  

Not Your Average Fashion Show…

Remember that movie making fun of male models that came out in 2001? The one with Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson? Zoolander was its name, and yeah, we all thought it was a little weird. But fast forward 15 years and throw the worlds top supermodels, Haute Couture, and the Zoolander 2 premiere into the mix and I’d say we have a party. The Tuesday night premiere in New York was a who’s-who’s of the fashion world. Anna Wintour, Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner and every other major power player in fashion and pop culture today showed up. To top off the whole event, there was a true-to-form fashion show, with clothes from Marc Jacobs, Alexander Wang, Tommy Hilfiger, and Valentino. If this doesn’t get you excited for New York Fashion Week, we’re not really sure what will?

CHANEL Spring 2016 Haute Couture

Karl's 2016 bride to close the show

Last week, fashionistas from every corner of the Earth flocked to Paris for Spring 2016 Haute Couture week. As expected, every major fashion house brought out their big guns and boy did they not disappoint. But in our opinion, the real show stopper had to be Chanel. With Karl Lagerfeld at the reigns once again, his vision for a “Grand Palais dollhouse” did not disappoint. Every top supermodel was there to play real-life dress-up and the hair and makeup was to die for. Beautiful neutrals and blacks were front and center, and the lace and beading made it feel light and breezy. Take a look at our favorite looks and fall in love with Chanel this season with us!            

Berlin Fashion Week: Lena Hoschek

Lena Hoschek Show - Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin Autumn/Winter 2016

This past week, Berlin hosted Mercedes Benz Fashion Week and drew all the “it-girls” and fashion fanatics to the city’s historic grounds to present Autumn/Winter 2016 collections from designers, many lesser known than those of the New York and Paris runways. Thanks to social media, one smaller designer in particular caught our eye, so why not share in clothing envy! Lena Hoschek is a Austrian designer known for traditional tailoring, classic designs and the ultra-feminine hourglass silhouette, but always adding a modern twist. Her 2016 collection was no different, but was clearly influenced by some of that style the Brits have always been known for. Perfect for fall, her cuts and colors are classic and we can only imagine what spring must look like from here! Take a look at highlights from her show!

The temperature has noticeably dropped and you may be tempted to start grabbing for those Uggs, BUT WAIT! You have options this season, fun ones, too! Although the cold may put a damper on your choice of footwear, it doest have to with all the styles ready to keep your toes happy. Our personal favorite this season is velvet booties, perfect for the upcoming holiday parties that will require you to put your best foot forward (pun completely intended). If velvet doesn’t fit your fall fancy, take a look at our super chic, favorites.

This past week marked our most favorite week in New York: Fashion Week! This previewed some of the newest collections for Spring and Summer 2016 from the biggest designers today. As exciting as these new looks are, many will argue that the main event is the street style seen throughout the long days spent show-hopping. Many photographers camp out on the street, snapping pics of off-duty models, it-girls and fashion’s elite. While we couldn’t be in New York ourselves, we have compiled our favorite street style looks, with plenty of fringe, denim and leather, for your viewing pleasure.

2015 VMA Breakdown

Gigi Hadid at the 2015 VMA's

This past Sunday marked the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards, a show known for keeping audiences on their toes from the start of the red carpet to the scrolling credits. This year did not disappoint. Celeb feuds, comeback performances and Miley as host left views questioning what had just happened, and the red carpet fashion was the cherry on top. Allowing A-listers to step out of their usual award show fashion box is what makes it such a treat for the eyes. We’ve taken some of our fave looks not worth missing and thrown in a few that weren’t so great, take a look below!
