Trend Thursday

As soon as I found this photo, I realized again what the main importance of fashion is. It is important to have your own sense of style

Often we get side-tracked when looking at magazines of super skinny models doning the latest trends. We need to remember to take bits of their style and then create our own look

So when you get dressed in the morning, remember to keep in mind the latest trends, but don't copy them look by look. Take a key trend like the way they button their collar all the way to the top or wear socks with their heels or stacking their rings and then make it your own. By doing this, you will obtain a great sense of style.

Love the contrast between these blue shoes and the color pallette in the blouse. This length of skirt is so great. We are seeing tons of this 60's look over and over again this season. Loving it!

The movement in the skirt is so femenine. The way the skirt is form-fitting at the top and then loose at the bottom makes for a very gorgeous sillouette. Very simple accessories are needed for this look as the shoes, top and skirt play the role just fine.

Decorative Shoes

As soon as I spotted this pic I was in L.O.V.E.
When a girl has ample amounts of shoes and they no longer can fit in her closet, what's she to do? This creative decorating strategy is brilliant. The shoes instantly become a piece of art. In reality, they pretty much are so why not display them like it?

Wedding Inspiration

Today I worked at a bridal fashion show hosted here in Victoria. It was a huuuuge event with both male and female models showing off the latest trends of bridal fashion. Everything from JS Collection to Alfred Sung. What caught my eye was the bright RED tux on one of the male models...yeah I guess you could say it wasn't just the color that caught my eye...;) 

I was busy in the back dressing all the models and making sure they looked absolutely perfect before stepping out on the runway. A bit stressful and chaotic, but loved every second of it. Got a little inspired after seeing bride after bride and searched the web and came up with a couple designs that I couldn't resist posting.

Tory Burch Spring 2012 Collection 

It's the first time ever that the renound Tory Burch is hosting her own fashion show. What an awesome event! Such an array of fabulous pieces that can be easily worn. Sometimes it's hard to picture runway pieces on yourself for a day-to-day look, but Burch keeps that versatile edge in tact which is what I love about her. 
You can take a look at the actual show here.  

Love the polka dot print for spring-totally chic and a tad 60's esque. Also a huge fan of the super long necklaces and the fact that maxi dresses will still be in come springtime-yippeee!

Mixing & matching prints and brights seems to be the ultimate in thing. I often hesitate to put outfits together like that because I think I'm clashing colors and prints and not making the outfit flow. 
Seeing this particular editorial makes me re-think my opinion on that matter altogether. I'm loving the contrast of the bold leopard print matched with the soft plaid (in the shirt and umbrella-how cute!). Adding a pop of color in the clutch and shoe really seems to tie the outfit together. 

This next photo is a personal fave. Love love love the contrast of neon brights (and the shoes are to die for). This look totally inspires me because I'm usually very shy when it comes to wearing these colors together. The top with white pants? No problem. But paired with these peach pants-that's a whole other story. Fall goal: try pulling off these color schemes & wear them together. Tip: keep the accessories neutral when dealing with neons.

I have always been a fan of boyfriend shorts but have yet to find a pair that I absolutely love. I posted this picture because I think boyfriend shorts are the perfect transition piece into Fall. Pair them with some tights underneath or a legging and boot. Looks super cute and casual and you don't have to spend extra cash on a new look!
