Saks sprinkles events around to celebrate spring!

30 Mar

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

If you are not there yet, you are definitely going to. This weekend and further Saks Fifth Avenue in Tysons Galleria is bursting with amazing and fun events you don’t want to miss!

First, Rebecca Minkoff representative will be there to help you spruce up your style for spring! Look at the picture, I’m in awe: combining peach, pink, tangerine and cherry? Seriously? Finally, mixing unmixables is in fashion. It widens horizons and forgives more. If before some elements of your wardrobe just didn’t go together, now it’s time! Be your own “mixologist”! Come Saturday, March 31 from noon to 2.

Get an exclusive gift when you spend $250 or more on women’s contemporary (which is easy!) – Rebecca Taylor scarf, wow! Till Sunday, April 1 (and it’s not a joke)

No worries gifts are not for women only! Marc Jacobs’ pocket square for those spent $250 and over in men’s design lab. Till Sunday, April 1

View a special presentation of the Chopard Spring 2012 collection, till Saturday, March 31, noon to 5

Finally, a desirable “dessert” – Lafayete 148 New York’s representative coming to Saks to help you find your style for spring. Saturday, March 31 from 11 to 2, presentation promptly at 11:30

Enjoy your fashionable weekend!

 

Elie Tahari’s spring fashions

19 Mar

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

Many Tahari’s fans concentrated in “Wear now” on Three in Saks Fifth Avenue Tysons this Saturday.  Freshest spring fashions (and in this weather it feels like it’s time for the fall trends) were presented in very brief but substantial fashion show the spectators got to absorb what’s on this season. Neutrals and subtle colors, nothing edgy, all very classy and feminine, as it always happened under Tahari brand. Sangrias and delicious fingerfoods were riding trays all around, shopping was active, and somebody won a clutch in a raffle!

Enjoy the pictures as usual.

Casey Jacket (middle) available here for $598.00. Grayson sleeveless dress (second from right) available here for $328.00

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

Saturday afternoon lots of Jimmy Choos have been walked off by many passionate fashionistas in private reception room in Saks Fifth Avenue Tysons Galleria. The invite-only event attracted shoe lovers and media (one doesn’t exclude the other), for the trend presentation by Karen Sommer Shalett, Editor-in-Chief of DC Magazine, and a chance to win a pair of Jimmys! Light bites and champagne were served. Ten percent of sales benefited Washington Humane Society.

International Women’s Day: trip to Sassoon

09 Mar

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

On Thursday March 8, a.k.a. International Women’s Day, which also happened to be a full moon, and also a Purim, I traveled to Vidal Sassoon salon in Tysons Galleria to check out their coloring and hairdressing department. Spring is coming and every woman seeks changes! See for yourself if it was successful! Thanks to top colorist Alvina Macrall and salon director Yoshiko Shimizu this is what I have on my head now instead of a mess before. Here is “Before” and “After” pictures for you to judge.

Neiman Marcus Spring Preview

27 Feb

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

Neiman Marcus of Tysons Galleria presented spring preview showcase on February 22. Guests first enjoyed refreshments and finger foods in NM cafe, and then proceeded to a fashion show.

We celebrate prints  – bolds or demures, graphics or florals; and color – pink is greeted back, neons are on! What appeared to me most and what I always loved – print jackets! Oh, and of course, “yellow is the new neutral”! Sunny, bright, uplifting color is very well appreciated this season. Hurray! Who thought, but sport is truly fashionable now – it surfaces even on dresses, which makes them more accessible and multipurposed.

Enjoy the pictures with commentaries, hope you will find handy information for you. And, let’s have fashion fun this spring (which starts whatever you decide, even if it’s freezing February!)

color and texture!

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

On Saturday, 12, right on Lincoln’s Birthday, Jimmy Choo of Saks Fifth Avenue in Tysons Galleria hosted a champagne reception to celebrate new perfume as well as the Jimmy Choo Crystal Anniversary Collection. Every guest could enjoy some bubble drinks while shopping, and get very pretty aroma sample in pink with bag or shoes purchase. Perfect choice for those who doesn’t want to go too sweet or too “oceany” – it’s a balanced combination of both.
