Looking back: Tricia's Week with Iris

As you know, Tricia went to New York City last week with the University of Texas at Austin's Textile and Apparel department. Her trip was a whirlwind and now she is back and has tales to tell!

Tricia loved every second of her trip, so picking which of her favorites to share with you was one hard task. She met many people and companies from various aspects of the industry and got an in-depth look at the fashion world from a personal point of view. "The trip was so inspirational, even though it was geared to the students and meant to inspire them, it was such an exhilarating experience it even inspired every adult in the room. Being that close to such influential people in the industry is a pinch me moment. I could hardly believe everything was actually happening," Tricia said.

Tricia met Carlos Falchi, the designer between the infamous luxury handbag brand and the designer who often creates bags to compliment high end fashion lines. The friendly man was welcoming and so excited to have the students and teachers.

Falchi and Iris-how precious! 
Tricia also met Harold Koda, the Chief Curator of The Costume Institute. He gave a behind the scenes look at the planning and execution of the Costume Institute's Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations Exhibit. "Miuccia Prada is the Italian representative of intellect in fashion" and "Elsa Schiaparelli [is] the designer who embraced Surrealism in the 1930s and who died in 1973."

Another one of Tricia's favorite experiences was meeting Jenna Lyons, the Creative Director of J. Crew. That's right....J. Crew. With Lyons were the designers and graphic designers of the classic company. Tricia loved this because, "It was like meeting the brains who dress America. It was so amazing. Even their offices sparkled with creativity. Such a once in a lifetime opportunity."

Picking Out Summer Tops

Hello everyone! Hope your Wednesday has been spectacular! I felt the need to do some serious shopping yesterday (which really is a need I feel more often than actually necessary) and I had an epiphany or realization, if you will. Sometimes I just forget about buying cute tops. I mean, don't get me wrong, I love me some cute tops. However I feel like I get so frazzled and consumed trying to find the perfect pair of jeans or shorts that I forget all about my upper half.

So, to save us all from neglecting the region above our torso, here's some cute tops Adelante style

1. Fate teal tops, $48
2. Joy Joy orange/pink top, $99
3. Fate Red Crochet top, $69
4. Flying Tomato yellow lace top, $40

*Also quick announcement to our fabulous Adelante shoppers, we will be having a Memorial Day Sale from May 26-28th! Come in and enjoy an extra 20% off of our sale merchandise!*

Stay stylish everyone!
