Flashback: 70's time!

The 1970's are back in action! The bell-bottoms, denim, and colored block trends are flying down the runways this Fall 2011 season. The styles are completely renewed of course, yet are still symbolic of the rocking, hippie feel that the 70's portrayed. You can pull this look off running errands, shopping, or even at work. It's all about mixing the right pieces that are appropriate for your situation. Strut your stuff in the retro style and make a statement dedicated to the fab past!

Capes are the new "it" trend for Fall and we are LOVING them. They are such an easy way for you to update your wardrobe since you literally just throw it on and go! The fall cape brings a touch of theatricality to an extra comfy and practical cover-up. There are so many different styles and cuts out there which makes it super fun for you to try different looks. Basic black, neutral, cropped, military, animal print...the choices are endless! If you have a specific print or cut you want to try but aren't sure how to style it, post a comment and we'll be more than happy to give you some tips:)

Had an absolute speechless moment today when I got to meet Whitney Port!!!!!! She was at Tootsies in Houston, Texas having a trunk show for her Fall 2011 collection. She is super nice and her clothes are so much fun! She got her inspiration from a recent trip to Africa. The colors and prints are a nice change from the regular neutrals and blacks that are so common with fall fashion. I scored a top and got a pic! Absolutely LOVE her!! I also got to chat with Shirin Askari from Project Runway season 6. She was so adorable, and I fell in love with one of her coats that she showed me from her collection. It was a trench that unzipped and converted into a crop jacket, and then the bottom part that zipped off turned into a cape...ABSOLUTE GENIUS!!!!

Picking more neutral colors will allow you to wear your bag all year-round. But if you're a fan of bright colors and crazy patterns, then by all means let your bag show your personality!

Summer trend: Fringe

Lush fringe lace ivory top
Forever 21 Pearlescent chains bracelet 

Summer is a great time to play around with super fun fringe pieces. If you're going for a more bohemian look, you can try a cropped fringe top and pair it with cut off shorts or 70's trousers. If you want a more sleek but flirty look, try rocking a tight dress with fringe detailing on the sleeves or shoulders. And there is no need to keep this trend to just your clothing. There are TONS of jewelry, accessories, and shoes out there that can add some instant fun to your wardrobe!
