Teen Spirit...

The 90's are back in full effect...designers such as 
Proenza Schouler, Jason Wu, 
and Rag & Bone are embracing the grunge era. 
It's all about plaid, baby-doll dresses, messy hair, and holy jeans. 
Think Courtney Love, Liv Tyler in Empire Records, 
or Shirley Manson. 
Dig out and dust off your Doc Martens your gonna want them!!

Crystal Vision...

Fashion designers might have had one women in mind during the stages of creating their fall collections.  While skimming threw the look books of designers such as Christian Dior, Ralph Lauren, and Vanessa Bruno etc... The same image kept coming to mind... Stevie Nicks.  Miss Nicks was such a trend setter with her Gothic prairie dresses and gypsy platforms... it's no wonder the songstress has inspired some of this falls hottest collections.

Ring the BELL...Denim goes wide again.

Once again fashion has turned the corner on denim. Wide legs, trousers, super flares, and bell bottoms are definitely the new fashion-forward trend. Don't throw away your skinny jeans just yet... these are just a few more options for you to choose from when picking a outfit. We will see more of this silhouette come spring.
 
Forever 21 Fab Bell Bottom Jeans $14.50

Brocade!

I am completely obsessed with Brocade this Fall.


It has such a richness to it...and when I see it on the runway... it immediately tells me a story. It feels vintage and royal...yet when styled correctly can take on a more rugged and edgy appearance. I have fallen in love with this brocade jacket from Balmain Fall 2010.


bebe.com has a coat similar to this one at a much more reasonable price.

$279.00

Here where two looks out of eight that I created that night. It was a remarkable experience and I can't wait to do more.. :) All outfits are available at neimanmarkus.com .


Old Habbits Die Hard...

I really like Anja's hair in the fall ads for H&M... It reminds me of Sienna Miller in Alfie.

Real vs. Steal


Leather Zip Wedge $680


Zip Up Wedge $32.30

HAIR TREND 2010

Ombre hair might just be the easiest and affordable style to rock this Fall. Just remember to avoid looking like you can't afford to get your hair colored regularly. Keep the strands on the end a few shades lighter than your natural roots.

My Loves A Revolver...

I was a huge fan of Mila Hermanovski when she was a contestant on Project Runway Season 7.  To my delight I came across her web site, and was happy to see that she is still pursuing her dreams, and creating collections.  I was particularly a fan of the accessories she produced for her Fall 2010 collection which aired on the season finale.  Her Revolver Gloves are killer...not to mention you can still wear your rings.


My personal favorite.. Ivory $175



Project Runway Season 7 is also available at www.amazon.com 

Drew...

 
Drew Barrymore looked super chic when she made a guest appearance on the Dave Letterman Show to promote her new flick "Going The Distance".... which from the preview will be just as amazing as her look. She wore a gold sequin top by Richard Chai....  paired with high-wasted "paper-bag waist" Camilla and Marc pants and grey suede YSL Trib Too pumps.  I'm also loving her two tone wavy locks.  Her look is just so glamorous yet effortless at the same time.  Get Drew's look for less.  Remember it's all up to your interpretation.
Michael Kors Gold Sequin Top $89.50 www.michaelkors.com
Silence & Noise Paper-bag Trouser $58 www.urbanoutfitters.com
ALDO Botking "Grey" $90 www.aldoshoes.com
Classic Leatherette Belt $4.80 
Polished Metal Hoops "Gold" $4.80
Grand Faceted Ring $4.80
Sephora by O.P.I. Going Nude Nail Polish $9 www.sephora.com


I also recommend listening to the soundtrack to Drew's new movie "Going The Distance" available to buy or download at www.amazon.com for inspiration!

Bang Bang... Bang?

Marc Jacobs new controversial ad campaign for his first men's fragrance.... showcases the designer in the buff.  Marc told Vogue... he tried many different approaches for the photo shoot and ultimately decided to go naked.  Honestly I don't understand why people are so upset about this...  It's no different then ad's from designers Tom Ford, Calvin Klein, etc...  The controversial ad will be featured chest up in the Midwest and full page everywhere else but the Middle East which will release the ad with the bottle only.
