Fall Trends Part 1! Pop Of Print!

1 Sep

Happy 1st of September everybody!!!!!! September, for most fashionistas is synonymous with Fall fashion!!!!!!!  I get so excited when September rolls around every year (although I live in Sunny southern California and it’s usually STILL Summer weather around this time) There are SO many fabulous Fall trends that I can’t wait to rock!! I will be sharing them all with you in my Fall trends series starting today with POP- pop of print!  You all have heard me talk about how much I love a POC- pop of color in an outfit, well I also love a pop of print!!!!! In the fall, I especially love a pop of animal print rrrrrrrrrrrrrr!    I am an animal print lover but I never over do it, there  is a thin line between chic and TACKY, so don’t go too crazy with it.

*If you prefer more animal print, like a dress or a jacket, try to go solid on everything else to keep the balance in your look!

Another Target Collaboration Announced!

9 May

Target is at it again, today they announced their upcoming high fashion collaboration with New York City designer Phillip Lim. Unfortunately we won’t be able to shop this collection until September, but I do think it’s worth the wait. This collaboration strikes me as a little different from its predecessors in the way that the design aesthetic is almost identical to Lim’s full priced designs, really giving the frugal fashionista the chance to get a true taste of the Lim’s designs. The collections, one for men and one for women, will be priced at $19.99-$299.99(for a leather jacket) although most items will be in the $19.99-$75 range. The most exciting part is that all the Bags are  priced at $60 or less!  The 100+ piece collection, 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target launches online and in target stores September 15.

Check out the $35 yellow tote offered in the target collection pictured below that is so similar to the ‘Pashli’ satchels that retail for $650-$825!!!  This, my friends is a collaboration worth getting excited over!

Fashion’s Fat Fall Issues

29 Aug

In the world of fashion magazines, the September issue is the most anticipated copy of the year. Crammed with glossy editorials, beautiful images and Fall ad campaigns, these issues are the ‘bible’ of fashion for months to come and are often the biggest issues of the year.  U.S. Vogue produced it’s biggest issue ever this year with 916 pages, weighing in at nearly five pounds!!!!! Here is a roundup of this years major covers from around the globe.

On a budget?  Your local library carries many fashion magazines that are free to read.

Starting with my favorite triple cover….

Vogue Paris Cover(s) which feature Kate Moss, Lara stone and Daria Werbowy in the same black Dolce & Gabbana dress.

Anna Wintour to put Lady Gaga on Fall Cover

17 Jun

Rumor has it Anna Wintour is putting Lady Gaga on the most coveted cover in all of fashion, Vogue‘s September issue!  Is it true??????  Sounds like a dream

shoot to me!  Last time Gaga graced the March 2011 Vogue cover, it was the second best-selling issue that year. I think she’ll get the #1 spot this time.
