One of my favorite parts about getting dressed every morning is accessorizing. Whether that’s with rings, bangles, headbands, or an understated necklace, accessories keep your wardrobe updated without having to actually spend money on new clothes! One of my favorite online sites that I just discovered is baublebar.com! I first heard about it after my blog crush Courtney Kerr (from Courtney Loves Dallas) collaborated with the online retailer to create a jewelry line. Her line features fabulous statement necklaces–but not the bubble necklaces trend that’s finally going out of style (thank god–why was this ever a thing?) Her jewelry is unique and sassy and absolutely perfect and affordable for dressing any outfit up.
What I love about the website is that every week they feature $10 and $20 dollar deals on jewelry pieces that don’t break the bank. If personalized jewelry is your thing, they’ve got you covered there too! Go check em’ out!
Spring break has come and gone and now we are in depression mode for another week, missing the places we went to and the people we saw. This weather here hasn’t been helping the transition either. I suggest you stay in a couple of nights, recuperate from whatever crazy things you do over break, and hang out and tell stories to friends who went somewhere else.
Two words: Lupita Nyong’o. How absolutely stunning was she?! She looked like a goddess in her pale pastel blue Prada gown and plunging neckline. All award season she’s been nailing red carpet looks and quite frankly putting many of her comrades to shame. What I love about her style is the bold color! It’s so easy to go the traditional route with black or navy, but I like that Lupita choses to make a statement and stand out from the crowd!
Now that I’ve given Lupita the attention she well deserved, I can’t help but gush about the GUYS’ style on the red carpet. Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor winners Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto (swoon) killed it at the oscars in their white tuxedo blazers. Whites and nudes proved to be a popular trend for both men and women alike. Ryan Seacrest was seen sporting the all white trend and Best Actress Winner Kate Blanchett stunned in a nude Armani Prive number. This Oscar palette of pale blues, nudes and whites are sure to be favorites with the spring season fast approaching!
So in case you weren’t aware, last week was Milan Fashion Week, and if there’s one thing I can take away, is that the Italians know what’s up. They present fashion in an absolutely stunning artistic way; it’s hard not to be anything but impressed. Roberto Cavalli surprised fashion goers at his Fall 2014 Fashion Show (photo below) Saturday February 22nd. Models strutted around a circular water pool surrounded by flames. If that doesn’t grab your attention, the beautiful white and black ornamented gowns, blouses, and coats will. His beige, black and white palette uniquely showcases the design and aesthetic of the brand. Beaded details, along with fringe and sheer peekaboos are sure to be Fall favorites!
In case you missed fashion week, or haven’t had time to drool over all of the upcoming trends for fall, I’ve got you covered. One of my favorite trends I saw on the runway was fringe! It’s so fun and flirty, and gives off a romantic feel if paired with the right accessories. Michael Kors debuted the trend in overcoats, handbags and dresses (below). Other designers like Phillip Lim, Herve Leger, and Derek Lam also showcased the trend on their runways. We’ve seen fringe before on the runways but what’s different about it now, is that the fringes are softer and ornamented in a delicate manner. Be on the look out for fringe everything come this fall, whether it be accessories, garments, outerwear or detailing!
