MBFW Spring Summer 2015 - Day 3

It's the weekend baby! And the shows are now in full swing. I find that on Saturday and Sunday the tents are more packed than during the week. Maybe that's when most of the out-of-towners arrive or all the students who are hustling to get access to the shows are available but whatever it is, you definitely need to be ready to get in and get out. Its, rush, rush, rush all day long.

I started with one of my favorite brands, Lacoste. My readers both here and in my freelance journalism world know that I show them tons of love and believe me when I tell ya, the feeling is mutual. Let me just go ahead and put it out there that I completely and totally LOVED the idea of bringing athletic wear back to every day wear and freaking it out with a new design twist. Plus, I am all about flats and sneakers with dresses or skirts these days. Cute and comfy is my new motto!

Loved it so much I shot a vid of the finale so I could enjoy it over and over again. Now you can too!

Next, I attended a show I hadn't had the opportunity to see before so I wasn't sure what to expect. What I got was an amazing second show of the day. I am now a fan and I'm happy to say that my seat was good enough that I took every single one of these photos myself!

After a quick bite to eat, it was on to the next and once again I scored with a fabulous seat so my iPhone and I went right to work. Front row status!

This next show gave me so much life...Really. I was lucky enough to nab some really awesome photos of these looks as well.

Then, to my greatest delight, I was asked to come backstage and receive a hot stone facial and massage sponsored by Cygalle Healing Spa and after a day like I had with one more show to go, it was most certainly appreciated. They sent me away with a nice sampling of product and the opportunity to visit them twice more next week. Can you say, excited?

And last but certainly not least a new comer to the MBFW scene, Puerto Rican designer Luis Antonio. And I would have to say he did an awesome job. Seriously, I would wear almost every piece. The prints were simply beautiful and each design was cut to perfection. Congratulations and cudos to him!

Honestly, these photos of the "Maritime" collection by Luis Antonio don't really do it justice. Check out the full length show HERE
