Dare To Be Squared

Last post I spoke about Leather/Vegan Leather looks that will be one of the hot items for the coming fall season. Another style or rather pattern that has no plans on taking a backseat in the coming season either will be Plaid. It will be utilized in a number of ways this go around, it’s no longer just a pant or plaid shirt, you will now find ruffled shirts, tiered skirts or even a plaid poncho (like the Ralph Lauren one that I will surely own).

As we know plaid tends to make its way into the fashion scene ever so often.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What I especially love about this particular season is how its being intertwined with other must have looks, like the plaid dress with leather sides you’ll find pictured below. With the mixing of the must have looks one piece is all you may need but who are we kidding right?! Anyway take a gander and see for yourself.

Faux/VeganLeather, Luxe Leather Whichever One You Like For Your Pleasure

There is something I do in my blogs that some may have already noticed. Almost all of my post will have something that leads into the next one. I previously discussed cutouts as being something you should keep an eye out for along with cropped tops. If you noticed in the Give Me Body post one of the bodysuits had cutouts, nice eh. Well today there is yet another trend that will be surfacing in the fall/winter seasons and I’m hella excited, why?  Because leather has been done but no quite like this and I for one just dig it.

The Styles:

Leather dresses we’ve seen before but with pleats and cutouts and embroideries like this Roberto Cavalli dress that has me drooling unto my keyboard, NEVER!!!!! I had to show you this masterpiece front to back as it really deserves to be seen in its entirety. Sally LaPointe’s cutout is no runner up, it’s equally gorgeous I urge you to look it up at the http://www.shopbop.com site the back is simply amazing. Can you believe the nerve …it has pockets as well…Fabtanstic. I love both of these dresses and each can be accessorized for optimal fierceness.

Below you can see the many way’s leather will find its way into many shopping bags or express delivery boxes and unto a lot of wardrobes. We have leather pants in a so many styles, I’ve found some seamed, paneled, colored, textured and even an Overall style.

As you can see if going all leather is not your thing you can add some flare by either purchasing bottoms or skirts or simply leather accented pieces. Whatever your preference, just get in where you fit in.

Give me body

As if the cropped look wasn’t enough to make the keep the abs in check a must here comes the Bodysuit. That thing that helps hold things in place in the lingerie section is now busting out for all to see. What’s really under there?

You will find it in a number of styles and not just the typical body hugging and that’s pretty cool. Let’s take a gander shall we …

These will give a little breathing room at can be used with a variety of bottom pieces. The Alice + Olivia number is a stunner. Simply gorgeous. Feel free to browse about the sites so you can get a better look for yourself. Now for the styles that will definitely show what you are working with here the ones I’ve selected to feature…keep in mind this can be played up to make it a bit more elegant with a blazer, maybe a bolero jacket give it a chicness or edged away with a leather jacket as the motorcycle jacket will also be a trend to be on the look out for (it never really goes away for me I must admit staple piece in my book). Layering with an off the shoulder cropped top would be right on if done right. Whatever the case this piece will find its place in your wardrobe.

Again opt for skater skirts, leather leggings, skinny jeans or vegan skinny pants (another hot number I will feature soon). Maxi skirt for this last summer months work great as well. Remember it’s slowly coming in to the scene so if you want a head start hit up the sites mentioned or simply keep an eye out.

A look inside River Island

A look inside River Island

Okay as promised here’s a look inside some of my favorites from the brand River Island. I must say I did find something for every style preference. It must also be dully noted that I simply love, love, loved and love their collection of sweaters.colorblockedriverisland

I did mention how much I loved the brands collection of sweaters right? They have a variety but these are the ones that immediately caught my eye. I found a lot of their pieces to be fun, playful and edgy. Many of the pieces I will post can be found at one of my favorites sites http://www.asos.com.

Style to watch: .

The cropped top.

The cropped top will be seen everywhere in the coming months. In a number of styles. Personally I have always loved this look with high necklines and I really do love to see it paired with high waist lined pencil skirts or pants. Of course it is an easy compliment with overalls, a look that too will be making waves in fashion feel free to pair it with either the classic denim style or revamped version as pictured here.

This cropped style will also be found in dresses in the coming season and for those who may not feel comfortable in baring much of the midriff area, no worries, as cutouts can be an easy alternative. There will be something for all tastes and likes. So show a little skin or go for the gusto.

I have to say I liked many of the pieces River Island had to offer. I can see where just about anyone can find something to add to their wardrobe at affordable prices. Feel free to browse about and take a look I can assure you you will not be disappointed. Again sites where you will find the brand http://www.asos.com and http://www.riverisland.com. P.S.I had to throw in that Yellow Leather by River Island I loved it.

Been a long time since I left you…

I’ve always had a thing for fashion. Its many styles and the way it caters to every one’s own personality. Maybe your style is classic, perhaps edgy, modern or experimental (the ones that dress according to their mood *raised hand*) whatever it may be it could be the reason you have an array of clothing from a specific brand or designer. We all have our favorites, no? You may find the same name brand/designer in my closet a few times too. But a long time ago I tested myself and rather than shop based on favorites I shopped based on what appealed to me. What I learned, I found items that I loved in a number of collections that I never thought I would ever buy from, I also learned that my taste can be a bit pricey. However in my research I found similar items for a lot less and learned to wait for sales. Waiting can be risky because you’ll go back for something and it will be gone *insert sad face* but its not as bad as paying regular price and going back for something else and seeing the very item you purchased for half off *insert angry face and…*.

My intentions for the next coming months will be to post looks from various brands/designers, picking out a few favorites and hopefully one or two will appeal to your style. The goal here is simple…help add to your wardrobe with names in fashion you may not have known about or maybe even considered purchasing from.

I used to be a do’s and don’t type of girl but now I’m more of a don’t give a (fill in the blank) if it looks good on the person go on or just dare to be different even better dare to be you ; )

Next post I will show some of my favorite pieces from River Island. I had no idea…just saying.

Walk It Out

Walk It Out

Hello me lovelies. Hope everyone is well and fine. I’ve been enjoying this New York City spring weather as it’s simply wonderful. The spring fashions are blossoming all over the city woo hoo. It certainly is a glamorous sight. Slowly but surely a lot of the mentioned fashions in previous post are streaming out unto the streets as well. This summer is going to be stellar but for now I would like to pay special attention to the item that pulls all the looks together.  As I sit here listening to old Madonna tracks and Foster the People I would like to offer insight at the shoes that will own the sidewalk.

 

 

FLATS -

Naturalizer Sailor available at zappos.com

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I remember when I was a kid I couldn’t wait to get older to wear heels. The higher the better I would say. This was based on rebellion and the fact that I was a shorty. Later I would embrace my shortness and found a deep love and appreciation for flats. This simple chic shoe offers comfort, easy wear and at times a sense of earthiness. Of course flats are available always, however this is time where the styles and looks may even have the sworn stiletto wearer ditch their heels and give these a try.  From Espadrilles, Strappy Sandals, The Slipper Loafers Style, Oxfords, Brogues and of course the Ballerina look these styles are endless and available in print, color block, pastels colors, canvas. These are very flavorful indeed.

WEDGES -

Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent available at shopbop.com

Free People Darcy Cork Wedge available at freepeople.com

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve loved wedges since the first episode I’d ever watched of Three’s Company when Chrissy would prance around in them in her hot shorts. They are fabulous. I love the look, the wear, the feel. If it were up to me they would never go away, ever. They’ve been around for the last few spring seasons and summer so fingers crossed. This season look for high wedges in Sneakers fashion, Espadrilles, Cork and Wood styles. Remember color, color, color and don’t forget metallics.

Koolaburra Khloe Sandal in Chestnut available endless.com

Sam Edelman 'Lyla' Pump available at endless.com

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We should just call this season shoe trend ode to Chrissy because that is who comes to mind every time I see the latest shoe fashions lol. Chunky Heels in all heights and for those of us that love wearing high heels expect them to be higher than ever. This style will be seen as Platform Sandals, Low Heeled Sandals, Clogs, Chunky Wood Shoes, In Stacked heels. I love the look of Chunky Sandals worn with little ankle socks, I don’t know why I just do. I’m completely thrilled to see these available also in a variety of colors. Now be cautioned ladies when wearing the super high heels, I once wore a pair on a cobbled stone street it was like playing hopscotch. They are very comfortable but if in that setting watch out.

Keen in Green

Keen in Green

Hello lovelies. Hope you all are well and living life to the fullest. In this post special attention is going to go not to a particular look but a color. This color will be a rave for a stint. It’s always had its special place all over the world. I’m talking about a color that means balance, life, growth, harmony. The color of nature and of course this color I speak of is Green. I gave it away in the title post didn’t I, oh well. I can’t tell how much I love the richness and flare of serenity this shade gives off. Its a color that can compliment all, hey if the first skirt was made of leaves I’m willing to bet we can all look great rocking it lol. The earth tones will dominate the coming season, this one will not take a back seat. Add this shade to your look, make others green with envy and remember any shade of green will do.
