Fall Fashion

Oh, how I miss school shopping. Gone our the days that my parents take me away for a few weekends to buy a complete new wardrobe for the coming school year.... However, I'm still taking online college classes... so basically im still in school. Right? So that means i can still go school shopping???

Here are a few fabulous photos from Style.Com that I'm going to look to for inspiration while getting dressed this fall.








Headmistress Accessories

Last month I saw a fabulous feathered headdress worn by one of my favorite bloggers. Luckily there was a link directly to the designer’s site. I happen to think every piece is delightful! I can’t wait to pace an order! Headmistress is known by girls around the world for their top quality feather hair accessories. Whether it be a fascinator, headdress, headband, hippie stretch band or clip, Headmistress has a fashion-forward hair accessory for every woman!

Fall Preparations


Yes, I know the 1st day of summer was last week. But I like to shop in advance... the fall/winter seasons seem to last much longer then spring/summer. Which means my cold weather wardrobe needs much more planning and preparation. Here are just a few things I’m stocking up on early. I’ll post more in a few days:

Knee Socks from Purple Label: I’m going to pair them with skirts, shorts and dresses.




Toms: Their new boots are just as comfy as the ever-so-popular shoes




Agate Jewelry:


Dara Ettinger Vienna Starburst Ring


Dara Ettinger Heather Disco Ball Ring


Dara Ettinger Kylie Ring

Searching…

A few months ago I came across this fabulous Minnie Mouse Skull Ring. Does anyone know where I can find it?

Ruby Moon

Duran and I recently had the perfect Saturday Afternoon. A visit to Ruby Moon for wine, cheese and relaxing.


Ruby Moon Vineyard & Winery is located just South of Henderson, Ky surrounded by the gently rolling farm land of the Audubon Region. Their wines are hand crafted in small batches by their own estate grown grapes from the three acre vineyard and other locally grown fruits.

I’m currently trying to come up with a reason to host a party there!

LWD



Fashion loves a blank canvas and you can’t get much better than white. Set your LBD aside; because right now it’s all about the LWD. The Littel White Dress! White is this season’s hottest… yet coolest color.

Wear One of Fall’s Top Trends Now


During the fall and winter months I practically live in hosiery. Paired under everything; dresses, skirts, shorts, tunics and long t-shirts. This fall my essential must-haves will defiantly be thigh-highs and knee socks. While the darker-colored thigh-highs on the fall runways, blacks and grays feel too heavy for summer...throw on a white or beige pair on chilly evenings for a fun way to mix up your mini or shorts.

Forever Black

99% of my closet is Black. And I’m totally okay with that. Here are the latest lust worthy Black pieces I plan to add to my fall wardrobe:

DSquared Heels
With a $1500 price tag I should start saving now.



Leather Jacket
Even though I have 4 leather jackets; I think I need this only and a few others that I’ve seen browsing fall 2010 Collections. If anyone knows the brand of this jacket, Please let me Know!

I Heart Harpers Bazaar UK

Vanessa Paradis oozes the charisma of an ever inspiring muse and eternal style icon Edie Sedgwick. Maybe it’s true what they say… imitation is the best from of flattery. If you haven't already picked up the July issue of Harpers Bazaar UK, you must.

Calling Cher Horowitz



( Refinery29.com)


According to Refinery29.com The Mary Jane Renaissance is upon us! The once tweed shoe worn with pant-suits and pleated skirts is made a serious comeback. Sleek and full of swank, Mary Janes are much more sophisticated this time around, and designers like Marc Jacobs showed just how much fun a sensible shoe could be. Whether high, low, with a chunky heel or propped on a stiletto, Mary Janes offer a dose of chicness without sacrificing too much comfort. We love the idea of wearing them with thin socks and a dress, or paired with cropped pants and a casual T-shirt.

This trend always reminds me of my favorite childhood movie Clueless.

Lazy Sundays


The hot and humid summer days are upon us. And I find myself wearing light airy fabrics rather then the usual head to toe black. While out in the heat you definatly want to be comfortable but remember you don’t have to sacrfice style for comfort! Today I spent the entire day relaxing with my boyfriend Duran. My perfect lazy Sunday outfit: Sheer Tunic, Distressed Denim Shorts and Gladiators

The Golden Age of Couture

In just one week my good friend and fellow fashionista Miranda and I will head to Nashville, Tn to visit The Golden Age of Couture at The Frist Center For Visual Arts.


(Picture Balmain circa 1950)


The Golden Age of Couture: Paris and London 1947–1957 is an exhibition that transports visitors to the most glamorous fashion houses of Paris and London in the years after WWII. This exhibition was organized by the Victoria & Albert Museum (V&A) in London, which possesses one of the finest costume collections in the world. Following record breaking attendance at its launch in London and its subsequent presentations in Australia, Hong Kong and Canada, The Golden Age of Couture continues its international tour at the Frist Center, the exhibition’s only venue in the United States, before traveling to Museums Sheffield in 2011.
The exhibition celebrates an important decade in fashion history that began with the launch of Christian Dior’s famous New Look in 1947 and ended with his death in 1957. The romantic postwar silhouette pioneered by Dior scandalized and delighted the public, and ushered in a period of remarkable creativity. Dior himself called it a “golden age” for haute couture. He and his contemporaries set a standard for impeccable workmanship and design that has rarely been surpassed since.
In addition to Dior, the exhibition highlights the work of such luminary Paris designers as Cristóbal Balenciaga, Hubert de Givenchy, and Pierre Balmain and celebrated London designers including Hardy Amies, Charles Creed, and Norman Hartnell. Included are examples of daywear, cocktail dresses, and evening gowns designed for royalty and aristocracy. Photographs by Cecil Beaton, Richard Avedon, and Irving Penn show how images in fashion magazines enhanced the prestige of couture, while also making its innovative ideas widely known and accessible in America as well as Europe.
