Elle's and MTV's Ports 1961 pre-spring collection by Tia Cibani

Me and the man himself! Mr. Joe Zee. I was lucky enough to snag some one-on-one time with Joe after the event. He is super laid-back and so nice! (I was swooning of course!)

I told him how much I loved A to Zee, and how I listen to his fashion advice religiously (see past blog posts for his entire A to Zee picks). He told me to tweet him a link to my blog because he would love to read it! Fashionable and down-to-earth? Perfection I tell you.

His commentary during the event was spot-on and super informative. Here are some trends Mr. Zee highlighted and like a good lil fashionista, I took notes:
  • Nudes are going to be huge this Fall
  • Flats and kitten heels are coming back in a big way
  • Day-to-night looks and pieces are all the rage
  • The embellished back is super sexy without being over-the-top
  • Boyfriend look is killer: blazer and trousers

Joe and Olivia looking fab!

Love the Grecian feel of this dress.

Perfect evening dress.

Little black dress.

Dying for this boyfriend blazer.

Nude kitten heels - totally on-trend!

This grey-lilac is the quintessential fall color.

The colors looked paint-brushed on!

Joe Zee says that the Fall must-have is the perfect trench coat.

This was my favorite piece! The reversible gold jacquard jacket! Perfect to dress up skinny jeans, heels, and a white top for a first date or to throw over a little black dress for that interview you landed for your must-have job.

Bold shoulders!

Perfect easy-breezy look for the Hamptons!

The draping here is undeniable and Joe suggested pairing it with a thin belt.

Joe. Tia. Olivia.
