Fall Fashion Picks.

Fall Fashion 2010

1.bow ties-
you can wear a bow tie anywhere nowadays whether your shirt, your hair, or your neck. they are fun to try new styles with.
2.graphic dresses- less floral (unless you use more neutral colors not BRIGHT flowers) and get more techno with graphic and tribal prints this fall.
3.oxford shirts (button ups)- a fitted button up or a mans button up (oversized) with a mini skirt or shorts thrown together with some tights could be pretty flyy this fall.
4.vintage earrings- you can find them at consignment stores, or like me from older relatives. u can also go to antique jewelry stores!! scarfs- lets throw the cotton and wool scarfs and save them for winter; because its all about bright silk scarfs this fall. neutral colors such as black, brown, or creme can go extra well with this garment.
6.suede/leather vest
7.tights- color, graphic, or lace
8. silk/wool blend pants- whether cropped or not but pants that hit right above the mid section are all the rave. throw them hipsters away!!
9.graphic pants- a solid shirt (baggy/fitted) would go great with tight graphic pants or any printed pants. if you do loose pants make sure your top is tight!!
10.sweatshirts- whether studded or crop everyone needs a good sweat shirt paired with some shorts and tights --either colorful or lace.
11.denim jacket
12.long socks- these look good with shorts and mini skirts of course whether styled with a strapped heel or military styled boot. shorts- style with some great tights on a cool day or night.
14.strapped heels
15.lower thigh/knee length skirts- or longer
16. broaches- the good thing about broaches is you can pin them anywhere for a lil sas!! whether on your bag/tote or clothes this trend is hot!!
17.oxford shoes
18.wedge heels- stay away from wooden based wedges
19. leather pants- these can go goos with just about anything!! whether dressed up or dressed down.

***note*** stay on the look out for suede, silk, and lace this fall!!

Its all about the 50s/60s this FALL for Fashion!!

here are some cute ways to channel your vintage side. pay close attention to the pieces and how they are worn. PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

Givenchy Fall/Winter 2010-2011 review.

Tavi Gevinson- Fashion Extraordinare

she's only 13years old yet she was able to be seated front row at some of the most brilliant fashion designers of our time Fashion shows. Tavi Gevinson is a Fashion Force to be reckon with!! she is not only a Fashion blogger, but has also guessed as a fashion correspondent on many occasions with different organizations. Tavi caught my eye in Vogue Magazine as she was giving her take on NYC fashion week- which she skipped school to catch!! (in the name of fashion of course. i wonder what her parents do?? any ways!! her corkiness and unique style attracted me to her and hopefully you too. she's such a typical yet --mature teenage girl full of inspiration and realism.

she describes herself as a "Tiny 13 year old dork that sits inside all day wearing awkward jackets and pretty hats. Scatters black petals on Rei Kawakubo's doorsteps and serenades her in rap. Rather cynical and cute as a drained rat. In a sewer. Farting. And spitting out guts."


Rising Fashion Icon

i'm always amazed by Fashionable individuals. but its something special when someone catches your eye as an fashion icon at such a young age. Willow Smith, 9, is no exception. Of course a true stylista can tell just from looking at her that one of her inspirations is no other than Fashion icon, rihanna. willow is very edgy at a young age that might bring up the question whether she is being "too grown". i think her style is safe for her age, risky but safe-- but then again willow is no ordinary child being born with parents like will smith and jada pinkette.

Banks of course for paving the way for us


most fashionable celeb. Rihanna & Lady Gaga, I can't choose between the two!

favorite designer. Betsey Johnson & the late Alexander Mcqueen


describe your favorite photoshoot. It is entitled "Love Lockdown". The photographer (Tasha Bleu)

had me shooting in a very vintage embroided top that went down to my waste, with a lot of leg showing! My hair was all curly & savage looking, & my make up was to die for!

We found this really old police car that had been painted black & looked very foreign. Along with another male model (friend), we shot quickly in case the owner of this alien space craft

Street Fashion

Fashion. Fashion. Fashion!!!! need I say more??:)

Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG!! ILL DOPE.

im not really a car person but when i saw this baby; i had to blog!!

--First of all, the remixed icon won’t be called the Gullwing or even the SLC as we had believed; its official name is Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. (That said, Mercedes does refer to the car as the “new Gullwing” in its press materials and also confirms the car will utilize the unique door configuration.) We’re wondering if Cadillac will object to the SLS moniker, but we doubt anyone will confuse this super-Benz with a full-size, four-door Caddy. This might be a good time to mention that we don’t yet know what the SLS will look like. Mercedes is holding back on releasing official exterior pictures of the car, but expect to see images surface early this summer. For now, information from Mercedes-Benz is limited to what’s under the SLS’s skin. Judging by the underlying structure, the car appears as if it will have proportions drawn directly from its 1950s forebear. Even the angles of the front and rear window openings look similar. The gullwing doors will pop off in the event of a rollover to allow occupants to escape.
