Modest Dresses - Oscars 2013

Sally Field in Valentino
Sandra Bullock in Elie Saab
Jennifer Hudson in Roberto Cavalli
Alicia Vikander in Elie Saab
Hilary Swank in Valentino
Zooey Deschanel in Valentino
Allison Williams in Valentino
Adele in Jenny Packham

Our favorite of the night was probably Sally Field in Valentino. One of us missed the red carpet show but caught her in the award ceremony and swore that it was Valentino. We guessed right! We've seen a lot of young actresses sporting Valentino lately, but oh how classy she looks. Valentino was seen quite a lot on this year's red carpet, especially at the famous Vanity Fair after party. Obviously you all are very aware of how partial we've been to the designer for a while. So did any of you have a favorite look (Valentino or not) of the night?

It's a lovely color and we think it looks flattering on all different colorings. We just saw a layout in Vogue covering the fact that cobalt is hot at the moment. We also knew that it was shown on a lot on this season's runways. Melody's look is a skirt and top combo (that just happened to be exactly the same shade), but we say if you're out shopping, go ahead and be partial to the color!

Street Style NYFW Fall "13

Street Style NYFW Fall '13

Love the simplicity, but toughness, of the black and grey. We would venture to guess that she is wearing an oversized grey sweatshirt under there. We could be wrong, but that's what we're thinking. And if so, than that makes this outfit pretty dang easy to take on....

Look who's back! Desirae's out on the road again from her maternity leave! Can you believe it? What a toughy. And here she is looking like a toughy in her heels and all. After having complications every step of the way with her pregnancy, and a crazy finale (with her early delivery and eventual last minute c-section since baby was breech), she's already back touring and we couldn't be more proud. And of course Thread Ethic is glad to have her back on its pages.

Thank goodness longer hemlines seem to be going strong into the fall collections. We saw so many collections hitting well below the knee and almost mid-calf. So where do you find dresses like these? Here, herehere, and here.

Casual Cool - NYFW Street Style Fall '13

Casual Cool NYFW Fall '13

NYFW Fall '13

Here's a cool way of dressing up a pretty casual look. Don't think we would ever think to put more of a sweat pant with heels, but hey! It's fashion week! Almost anything goes! We have to say our all time favorite baseball-hatted look from NYFW is from NYMag's collection of photos here. Laurel Pantin is super awesome....
