Do yourself a favor…

August 22, 2008

Start shopping for fall! I just returned from a two week vacation and lots of NYC job hunting, so I hope you haven’t been too bored! Mercedes Benz fashion week is just around the corner and we will already know what to buy for next season so it is really time to get out there and stock up your fall and winter wardrobes. 

As I reported after Spring Fashion Week 2008, there are lots of great trends this season:

  • Greys, Purples, & Berries
  • Lace, Florals & Feathers
  • Platform Heels & Booties
  • Constructed Jackets & Tailored Pants
  • Geometric Shapes
I have compiled items for each of these hot fall trends:

Style on a Budget

July 28, 2008

As I get ready to move to one of the most expensive cities in the world, I am preparing to put my clothing expenses on a tight budget. As I was looking around Target for some things for my upcoming trip, I strolled through the shoe section just to see what they had to offer. To my surprise, I found a few pairs of shoes already on sale that are very fall-fashionable. 

Compare:

 

Women's Mossimo® Vergie Peep-Toe Booties

I also found a shoe deal on DSW online. This pair of Nicole Miller peep-toe pumps is very similar to a pair of Alexander McQueen shoes- the highlights on the Nicole Miller shoes are black patent leather rather than the gold highlights on the Alexander McQueen pumps, but they are both beautiful pairs of shoes:

A Dark Cloud Comes Over Our Closets

April 30, 2008

I have gladly worn dresses the last 3 summer seasons. Form flattering, fun, and comfortable, dresses are a great way to show off femininity and a great pair of heels. Unfortunately, the fashion gods have officially declared their doom. According to the fashion editors, stylists, and designers who make and create trend forecasts, dresses will officially drop off of the style radar by the end of August. The styles that will be replacing the dresses are going to be more tailored with wide leg pants, and a continuance of the high waist on bottoms. One of my favorite outfits I have seen in this style was by Ralph Lauren. This look was created for his 40th anniversary line. While most of us will not be wearing this tuxedo-like style, this outfit emphasizes the feel of fall fashion. If you just aren’t ready to let go and are still looking for a dress to wear this spring or summer, go for small floral prints.
