I’m back ladies and gentlemen! It’s been a little while but I’m back to doing what I love….blogging! These past couple months I’ve been crazy busy! I’m finishing up my Master’s at St. John’s University, trying to pursue my “dream career”, and working like crazy! I’m actually working at Macy’s in the corporate buying office. I am a Merchant Office Assistant in the Fine Jewelry department. (Fancy title that basically means I do boring clerical work). I’m learning a ton about the retail world. It’s brutal out there! My favorite part about the job is going out with vendors. The vendors treat us amazing (cause they want our business!) I’ve never had so many free lunches until I started working here! Anyway these have been some of my favorite summer outfits so far…hope everyone is having an amazing summer! More to come!
As the nights get cooler and the days become shorter, the sad realization that summer is ending and fall is beginning entered my thoughts. Labor day has come and gone, swimming pools are closed, the kids are finally back in school and fall is here! Not to fear, these hot fall items will surely warm up these cool September nights. It’s time for Fall 2012 trends!
My number one fall 2012 trend is snake print! From the runway, to the crossway, snake print is everywhere! From pants, to purses, to shoes and belts, snake print is a popular trend that is not going away. The key to rocking snake print is learn to wear it in moderation. Don’t over do it with snake print everything. The motto is less is more. I personally love a pair of Skinny Jean Snake print pants paired with a simple black top and black shoes. I found an awesome pair of INC brand snake-print skinny jeans at Macy’s for $79.50. Another one of my obsessions that is perfect for any season (especially the fall) is leopard print! I am obsessed with leopard print! Again the key to wearing leopard is moderation! You do not want to walk out the house looking like you came from the jungle! Check out the Guess? Leopard print pants pictured above. Aren’t they cute?!
The next trend I’m kind of feeling for Fall is metallic pants. They’re perfect for a night out on the town with your girls or a nice date night with that special someone. Jean Paul Gaultier featured metallic pants in his Fall 2012 collection in Paris. Again, the key to wearing metallic is to take it in moderation! I would do a cute pair of metallic pants with a black blazer. It shows that your professional side can be a bit edgy. I’m also loving the metallic handbags. I’m not a huge fan of metallic shoes, but if it works for you, go for it! Check out Victoria Beckham in her long black blazer with her shiny metallic black pants and oh so cute Christian Louboutins!
Leather Jackets are a must for Fall!! As the weather gets cooler, you must be prepared for any weather changes, and look cool while doing it! Leather coats are edgy, sophisticated, and can make a difference to any outfit. Leather is coming back strong this season with everything from leather dress, to pants, to tops. If you cannot afford real leather, designers are making faux-leather jackets that actually look real! (I remember back in the day when you could quickly spot out who was wearing the “pleather”). Below is faux leather jacket I bought from Dress Barn last fall. What do ya think?
I rarely shop at H&M but when I do, I usually fall in love with somthing that doesn’t have my size. I fell in love with this black&white dress a couple weeks ago and I can seem too find it anywhere in my size! I’ve been to a couple H&M locations and no one has my size! I love this dress because its only $17.95 and the fabric is amazing. its a nice light stretchy material thats comfy and versatile. Plus its black and white print is perfect for any occasion and can be easily paried with almost any color jacket and shoes…if you guys see it in size medium anywhere in the Long Island or NYC area let me know! =)
So as it turns out, I’m obsessed with black. Black is sexy, classy, professional, punk-ish, hot, stylish…basically you can never go wrong with black. From black hair, to black nails, to black clothes, I cannot get enough of it. Today I’m here to talk about our best friend, “The Little Black Dress”. You can never go wrong with it!! A cute simple little black dress can make you feel sexy and confident. It’s perfect for any occasion and it makes you look good without trying to hard. The little black dress can help you hide your tummy, show off your sexy legs or your toned arms. Make sure you pick the right type of dress for your body type. For example, if you want to add some shape to a “non-shapely” body, you might want to add a belt or a string to tie your waste in. If you want to add some color, you may want to add a brightly colored belt such as pink, red, green, yellow, etc. to add a pop. Or to add a pop of color, you can pair some bright-colored shoes or a bright purse. The number one rule is to accessorize!! Whether it be some stand out earrings, bracelets, blazer, purse, etc, accessorize, accessorize, accessorize! Here are some ways to wear a little black dress…..Here is how Kim Kardashian wears her sexy little black dress.
