NicoPanada is doing a capsule collection of its sportswear clothes and we are in love. Prices start at $89 dollars and the dress below is just $119!
The capsule collection only features only 14 pieces which are mostly dresses but the feminine sporty vibe reminiscent of Fenty and Lazy Oaf (a brand known for Sad Girl sayings on basic silhouettes with tulle detail).
The prices of this brand however is the most friendly! Nicopanda was launched in 2015 by fashion idol Nicola Formichetti. The collection is only available in select Macy’s and there are rumours the launch included a makeup line.
The collection launched April 15th and we can not wait to shop!
Let’s end this week with 2 unisex sample sales that we will be adding pictures to Social media as we shop today (Check us out on instagram @tfgnyc).

We wrapped up our trip to Japan just in time for more snow in the Northern US (hopefully the last one).
We covered what to wear between season but what do you wear to a season unlike any of the past?
No wonder that crop sweaters have come down every spring runway!! Here are some tips when April showers turn into April snow storms that kill May flowers:
Get some sexy rain boots
Rain boots can double has snow boots especially when the snow is mostly slush or a few inches. Also, it will not be as cold as winter (even at 39 degrees). Shop outlet retailers like Nordstrom Rack to find great pairs for over 50% off!!
Get a rain trench with style
Trench coats never go out of style!! You may be tempted to just wear your waterproof winter coat but hey, it’s spring..ish. Remember to get one with a hood so you can ditch the umbrella.
Chic nylon bags are better than coated canvas and leather like bags when it comes to standing up to rainy weather!
New clip on earrings are light weight and charming.
For some reason, piercing your ears are not in style as it were in the 1990’s (although, they keep saying the decade is rolling back in).
Old clip on earrings are going away..
These earrings slide on the earlobe and are light weight. The are similar to ear hangers that focus on the skin between the face and ear.
Happy hump day!!
Fashion Week in NY is over and we did not get to cover all the great shows!
Tune in to our youtube page on Monday to see all the video from last week shows and tune into facebook to see the shows we just did not have time to cover!!
In the land of faux fur where designers have promised to retire real fur products; one man deared to bring real fur to the runway with his debut NYFW show. Romeo Hunte fused ski resort wear with traditional sportswear with a show so unique, they was a line to get in.
An bigger shocker was the real fur that graced the runway which was also unisex with men and women in similar legging-ish pants and enormous fur coats (not jackets, coats).
The colored plaid was a unique touch with unconventional hues from green to orange. Plaid jackets got a remix with large sleeves and zipper accents.
Purple leather Jackets!! I am in love with the yellow fur jacket as well in rabbit. We also saw subtle fur trim on leather for a double wow factor.
The men wore the same pleather (or maybe leather?) slim fits as the women and were also draped in fur! Most of the plaid looks for women can also go for men!!
Every fashion week we look through several prediction sights and try to gleam the newest most innovative trend in fashion this fall. Of course, trends like active themed sportswear (driven by Fenty, Adidas,etc) and typical embroidered fabrics and patches will remain, but what do designers have up thier sleeves for something new?
SILHOUETTE: CROPPED W/ WIDE SLEEVES
Sleeves have been a way to update garments especially with the ruffle trend in sweaters last fall. This fall look for wide and long sleeves on cropped sweaters for a cool juxtaposition.
PATTERN: OIL SLICK
Holographic hues get a redo with darker colors rather than the greens and reds usually associates with it.
Pleats are back but with thicker fabrics and wider folds. Look for woven material for an extra luxe look and altered lengths.
This is largely a guess because dresses are a signature garment for most designers. So ruffles around the waist of a dress with a long silhouette may or may not be a thing…we shall see next week!
It is men Monday so we have some trends for you as well, the oil slick pattern is unisex and seen on both men and women. Another pattern for the guys – Burberry plaid.
Here are some more possible trends:
- Quilting…jackets, pants
- Baggy pants…move over skinny jeans
- Floral prints for fall?
- Wide brimmed hats
It seems everytime we are unsure of our furture, we look to the stars. Fashion follows suite with astrological themes no longer just jewelry fair.
Zodiac Trend Spring 2011
This Spring look for galaxy and zodiac prints as well as constellations on dresses, pants and skirts. Have we seen it before? Of course, the trend came in 2011 and 2016 both periods of uncertainty.
Zodiac trend Fall 2016
This time around we see easy silouettes unlike the velvet and embriodery looks of 2016 (Fall) or the super sheer of 2011 (Spring) We are seeing effortless long dresses and sensible prints easy to add as a permanent staple.
So check your zodiac sign and wear it on your sleeve this spring.
Happy Hump Day
Move over Millenial Pink, we have a new generation to focus on! So what is behind the generational color scheme?
Remeber, like Millenial Pink, Gen Z Yellow does not refer to a specific color but the preference the generation has for color in general. In turn, yellow represents energy, joy, intellect and presents a warm feeling. It also is associated with food which may be the reason this generation thinks of themselves as foodies and the rise of food themed clothing in fashion
We expect this color to continue to dominate fashion again this fashion week as we saw unisex looks of the color in the past.
At least it seems the next 2 generations are more hopeful then Gen X Beige which means dependable, conservative and flexible (the exact opposite of a generation formerly called “lost” and “slackers”).
Okay, guys, we know there are certain things that make you look cool that you will just not give up just because the weather dips but here we list 5 things to ditch this winter so can stay warm.
Okay, the biggest myth in winter is that leather (or its plastic look a like) will keep you warm. This is a big false. Hell, my leather rabbit fur trimmed gloves are adorable but do nothing for my fingers.
These cotton based articles will not keep you warm simply because cotton actually absorbs water (reason why jeans are so hard to dry) and hence remain cold longer then wool or polyester pants. Sorry, no skinny jeans.
Time to wear underwear if you are not use to wearing it. Your lower extremities will thank you. Try polyester boxers for extra warmth.
We love how clean they look but they will not keep your feet warm. Switch these up for crew socks in wool or polyester blends.
Once it snows, time to put the sneakers in the back of the closet! I was amazed how many people wore sneakers during the great blizzard of 2018. It is right up there with women wearing stiletto booties. Cherish your life, no points for dieing for fashion.
