Beyonce’s Blog & 5 Celebs We Wish Had Fashion Blogs

By Kelsey

Wouldn’t it be nice if some of Hollywood’s best dressed lent their expertise to us on a daily basis? In a dream world I would open an iPhone app every morning to fashion blogs personally written by some of my favorite dressed celebrities. Beyonce’s blog wets our palette for celeb style, and here are five more we’d like to see more fashion from.

From edgy , classic , everyday and crazy I’d pick my mood and read my blog. Yes, in a perfect world everyday would be a fashion show and it would be easy to know what exactly was going through the mind of my favorite celeb when they stepped out of the house. Since this is probably a far off dream, let’s pretend! Here are some of my dream bloggers.

1.Lauren ConradLauren Conrad is one of my favorite designers. Making fashion look effortless I absolutely love her desire for floral print. She gives  off a old fashion glam look while still looking up to date and lovely. She may have a beauty blog (TheBeautyDeptartment.com) and blog on LaurenConrad.com, but I want to see her style daily… and maybe copy it.

2. Katy PerryFeeling crazy? Then rock the blue hair and dramatic lashes! Katy Perry teaches us that you’re never too old to have fun with fashion. You can make a statement every day; don’t be afraid to take a risk.

3. Blake Lively is always on top of new trends. As fashionable as the character she plays on tv, she looks chic in every day clothes and in formal wear.  Known for a sleek and stylish look Blake always rocks top designer looks. Get her look! Continue Reading

Our New Favorite Designer Collaboration: Neiman Marcus + Target Holiday Collection

By Kelsey

I love Neiman Marcus with all of my heart. Walking into the store is a total experience; the sales people are over the top friendly, you get to see what top designers have been up too, and the atmosphere is delightful. Now, don’t get me wrong, I only LOOK, when I step foot into Neiman Marcus, the only thing I can afford is a salad from their café. Obviously, I was ecstatic when I found out that Neiman Marcus was teaming up with Target.

 

Target, known for their low prices, leaves it nearly impossible to leave the store without purchasing something. Neiman Marcus and Target launched their collaborated collection Saturday at 8am; ( also on target.com) some devoted shoppers were in line since 6:30 am, and you would be too if you could get your hands Tory Burch, Derek Lam, Marc Jacobs, and Oscar de la Renta for Target prices!

Open a Bottle of Wine Nail Polish

By Kelsey

For the nail-polish obsessed, the best fall fashion accessory is deep red nails. Think red wine! Deep-red nails are stirred up major buzz at New York Fashion Week and have been a big street-style trend. These red-wine colors are a perfect accent color to your fall favorites. Different variations of this deep red-wine color (dark red, deep purple, burgundy) is a trend that’s here to stay and we are here to share some of our favorites with you.

wine inspired nail colors

1. Forever 21 – Wine Stain $2.80 // 2. Butter London – Dark Red $14.00 // 3. OPI – Malaga Wine $7.95 // 4. Essie – Skirting The Issue $8.00 // 5.  Sally Hansen – Red Zin $6.99

Red wine stains lips and teeth. These dark hues do the same and can leave some unsightly yellow nails after its taken off, so don’t skip a good basecoat to keep your digits in mint condition. This versatile color will look excellent with earth tones and prints. We’re loving this trend so much that we’ll be rocking lips to match!

Comment below and tell us your favorite color for your nails for fall!

Spendy VS Trendy: Floral Blazers

Despite fall being all about darker colors and the leaves changing, florals are really blooming in fashion. Jessica Alba was spotted wearing the spendy version and yours truly owns, wears, and gets tons of compliments on the trendy version (c/o Kohl’s).

Wear with leather shorts, riding pants, a LBD, or copy me and pair with some cutoff jean shorts.

Heel-less Shoes: Hot Or Harmful?

By Kelsey

The most-talked-about shoe of the season is also a shoe you have to see to believe. These shoes will give your style an individual look and everyone you meet will definitely be looking at your feet. The heel-less shoe has been spotted on the runway and on celebrities, so is this trend here to stay?  I know fashion is an ever-changing form of art, but I can’t help but feel like I’ve turned into my mother by thinking “these shoes are not practical.” A shoe without a heel, well they are certainly interesting to look at, but that’s about it.

When would you wear this shoe?For a night on the town? No, not unless you have insane balance control. To the bar with your friends? 100% no, these shoes and alcohol DO NOT mix. At home sitting on your couch? Yes, almost no chance of injury. Yes, we’ve seen celebs like  like Victoria BeckhamNicole Scherzinger, Lady GaGa and Lucy Hale stand tall in these shoes, but are they really worth the tough time walking? Heel-less shoes

1. Neon $42.00 $27.95 (Go Jane) // 2. Cream $47.50 (Charlotte Russe // 3. Blue $47.50 (Charlotte Russe)  //4.  Spikey $42.90 $28.95 (Go Jane)

There are far better ways to look glamorous with zero chance of bodily harm. So if you’re clumsy, or don’t wear heels that often, I’d sit this trend out. Don’t feel too bad, along with its unpractical look, I believe they are absolutely hideous. Let’s hope this “trend” turns into a fad and disappears as quickly as bedazzled trucker hats.

Are you bold enough to try this trend,? Take a look at a few heel-less shoes we’ve recommended. Good luck walking gracefully in ‘em!

Pairing Your Prints – A Beginner’s Guide

By Kelsey

Animal, floral , polka dots, stripes, paisley and plaid prints; who would think they can all work together? Mixing different prints  is one of the biggest up-and-coming trends and seems to have no boundaries – just pick your favorite prints and start mixing, but do that, and you may end up looking homeless or literally crazy.  You want to stand out and be mistaken for a celebrity, like Whitney Port  (pre bad financial press) or Diane Kruger, not look like you’re a regular at the local soup kitchen. Be chic, not crazy. Here are some safe starting options to wearing a print or two you probably already own. Stay tuned. This trend will have a few installments, sure to make you a mixing master!

1.Tie-Back Floral Tank $30 @ Delias / 2. Floral Crop Top  $15  @ chiarafashion.co.uk / 3. Faux Leather Shorts $23 @ H&M / 4.Polka-Dot Corset $22 @ Tilly / 5. Polka Dot Blouse $35 @ Delias / 6. Britt Skirt $58 - Abercrombie & Fitch .


Lace + Spots:
 Lace is one of those prints that’s usually only one color and actually acts a as a neutral – meaning it’s subtle enough to mix with many types of prints – but not all at once. Tru it out with a polka dot pairing.  Make sure the prints are colors and combinations will pop! 

Florals + Leather: 
The naughty/nice combo is easy to achieve with leather and floral. Pair a floral top with leather pants or shorts. It gives a day-and-night feel all in one outfit.

Pale Knits + Brights: Pale knits on bright denim is a simple-chic option for the print-on-print beginner. Wearing two colors doesn’t technically constitute as a prints, but it’s a unique pairing that works that unexpected, but works..  The sharper the contrast, the more impactful the look!

The options listed above should wet your palette. Do your homework and try out these quick tips. Lesson two is coming soon and it we’ll take your prints to the next level (hint: plaid and stripes together – yeah, it’s happening!)
