It’s been awhile since I’ve shared some stealing or dealing items. So to try and make up for lost time, I’m hitting you guys with the white stuff.
Lately the all-white looks here, plus styling projects focusing on the F/W ’12 season had me looking at tons of garments and accessories with price ranges that can work for those who like paying beer man prices or others who think the finer things in life are worth paying extra for.
Go ahead and fill those champagne flutes up with whatever makes you happy, beer or champagne cause no one will know what it is just by looking the bubbles, the same goes for these must-have items.
Not being model height nor fitting into the petite category has some disadvantages, especially if you work in fashion. They don’t call it sample sale for nothing. This comes into play sometimes when I want to wear my favorite length in skirts and dresses, the midi. I don’t want to always wear a pair of flats or outrageously high heels or platforms with every midi dress or skirt I plan on wearing this summer. I did have this question pop up a couple of time already, and since it’s one I can relate to all to well, just wanted to share some options, and styling tips that may help those inquiring minds.
Records are being broken people and the 2012 Olympics haven’t begun yet. I know some of us can’t help but getting into a fashion trend like it’s the latest dance craze, but if there is one trend that needs to be put to rest or avoided by all means, it’s the floral blazer.
Fashion is forever changing and revolving. We are always looking for the designer of the season, the must have colors and trends. This creative, vicious cycle that we cant get enough, starts with the F word, lets keep it clean, can now include a preemie fall season, written into our fashion weeks yearly schedules, I’m was all to happy to scan through the collections looking for must-haves pieces. Pre-Fall collections of 2012 will be giving us, colors that will not blend in, there are evening gowns that could make anyone feel like a Hollywood star and outerwear that can fit, either more than one person at a time or will allow your boyfriends or male friends to borrow your coat without that tight feminine feeling, that’s if they’re into the over-sized look. Let’s see the trends I gogo gaga over.
The Outerwear Shuffle: You have some time before these coats hit retail store, So take that time to figure out what you can rock underneath these marvelous coats.
With the oversize coats, it can mean heavier sweaters underneath for people who are in colder climates. It is also a great look for someone who likes to wear outrageously high heels with tights. Also for those ladies who want to surprise your boyfriends with the naked or lingerie clad body underneath the traditional trench, try the oversize coat instead. New year, new sex looks. Just coat, tights, heels and a handbag.
With the oversized coats, why not some big sleeves to match? Tight at the wrist and lose on the top, just the way I like my sweater sleeves. These types of sweaters have always been my favorite during the colder months. It hides the flabby arms one may have right after the holidays and during the hibernation season, and it’s works for the extra layers you may want to wear underneath the sweater.
Red will do a body good ladies. During a season when most people will be wearing darker colors, forget just the pop of color on your lips, or an accessory. Color is direct for Pre-Fall 2012 in the form of the color red. Go for it all the way baby!
The wider the pants legs, the higher the heels to be worn, the taller we can be! That’s how I’ve always looks at wide leg pants and the different versions designers have given us from their pre-fall collections will allow us to wear a lot of heels, platforms and wedges that can take us to new heights.
Do you guys remember Men on Fashion blasting some of the resort 2012 collections? A little reminder here. Even though Chloe wasn’t one of their victims, I think the designer house is working on keeping out of the “Hated It” radar and get onto the “Three Snaps” List.
This collection is the mix of downtown meet uptown chic, all the while working the ultimate layered looks with perfection. This Chloe Pre-Fall 2012 collection has some of my favorite silhouettes. The loose fitted sweater that has loose leg-of-mutton sleeves to match, a maxi dress in white that can only be worn with clear liquids being drunk around it and the wide leg trousers, that can hide a small village underneath each leg! Now my mission, one that I’ve chosen to accept is to get my behind in at least one of these pieces. Think Santa Claus will do a do over for my 2011 Xmas list?
About a month ago, I decided to challenge myself by create my own version of The Fashion Book, but mine would focus on my favorite things for the coming seasons of spring/summer 2011. At first it seemed easy enough, since there were several items that started with the letters C, D, F and S in my memory bank. The easy street changed pretty fast when letters G, O,Y and Z stalled me for days. Would of been easy to ask for help from friends, but this project I wanted to do on my own, for as long as it would take. Even though this project took a couple of weeks to find something for each letter in the alphabet, including images, writing tidbits and creating templates, I’m happy that I did it all by my lonesome. Now, let’s see if I can do this again for Fall!
