Left, Left, Left, Right Left. Black, Black, Black White Black. For S/S’ 13 an obvious trend is less color, and Marc Jacobs pulled it off with monochrome prints and simple silhouettes. Jacobs also showed us that covering it all up can put you into the sexy-fashionable crowd with straight lines, t-shirts and patent leather boots and flats. A collection that channels the 1960s fashion it-girls of that decade like Twiggy and Edie Sedgwick leading the marching band.
This label has become one of my favorites overnight. Kenzo’s spring 2012 collection started off my drooling session with the brand, thanks to the collage of prints, texture layered on top of texture, and rich colors, colors and ohh yea, what’s the special C word again? See my previous post HERE.
I’m even happier that they’re maintained the same overall look and silhouettes for their Pre Fall 2012 collection. The collection included a color-block trench coat has my name written all over it. Speaking of name all over it, the K on the top, another piece that should be with me along with the boots, plus the handbags with long straps, perfect for my hands-free, cross body look. Let me stop so you can start your own gawking experience.

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.

My Monday post came about a bit differently this week and was researched, edited and posted completely all from my IPad.
Well some days ago, my MacBook gave me the blue scree of death, leaving me with with no computer and lacking the ability to write, or so I thought. A weekend of Ipading and Iphoning the hours away, got me thinking, why can’t I just use the mobile devices I have? I found apps to insert captions, create collages, upload and export my images all mixing them together with the administration section of my website, giving everyone the final result which is…read on
Bond time is always sexy time. James Bond, the fictional character created decades ago, is a British Secret Agent, code number (007) who is man of charm, wits, physical strength, sex appeal, and stimulates the viewers minds, bodies, and everything else. (wink)
The movie franchise has made leading men out of a handful of British actors who filled the needed requirements for such a role. Personally I’ve never watched all of the James Bond movies, but better late than never, especially since Daniel Craig was the one that got me hooked and the suits than adorned his body fitted him like a well-tailored glove, thanks to designer Tom Ford.
Sadly Mr.Craig will be reprising the James Bond role for the last time in 2012 and a new 007 will have to fill his shoes. So who is tall, sexy, has a voice that will hypnotize us and a body to be worshipped with or without clothes on it?
Lately,there has been Hollywood talk about actor Idris Elba taking over the role, and hopefully he gets the role, so the phrase “tall, DARK and handsome” can finally be added to the characteristics of James Bond.
With a new Bond, there should be a new designer to dress the man. A designer who is known for his expertise in tailoring, has dressed some of Hollywood’s leading men, can wear his own designs like no other and calls the United Kingdom home, with the sexy accent as proof. Give us Ozwald Boateng, shaken not stirred.
Born in Ghana and now based in London, Mr. Boateng began making bespoke suits in 1990 and never looked back. He is widely credited with introducing Savile Row tailoring to a new generation and his clients include Will Smith, Laurence Fishburne, Jamie Foxx, Samuel L. Jackson, Russell Crowe, Keanu Reeves, Mick Jagger and P Diddy.
it’s high time that Ozwald Boateng suits, help define James Bond‘s physical assests and in my book he is the perfect designer to dress Idris Elba or any other actor who may be chosen for future installations of the movie franchise.
