Printed Matter

Kristen Stewart attends The Twilight Saga: New Moon, UK fan event at Battersea Evolution on November 10, 2009 in London, England.Here’s one big trend to look forward to (or not): clashing patterns and prints. No other style spells eclectic, fun, and absolutely carefree than the look of mixed patterns and prints that don’t naturally match. (Actually, not a lot of patterns or prints match, so anytime you do wear print over print, you’re bound to channel fashion eclecticism.)

It’s understandable why most people stay away from this look.  It’s already difficult enough to mix and match colors, but to go ahead and break rules and mix clashing prints? In fashion, it’s almost always easier to follow the rules than to break them—but where’s the fun in that?

For those of you who are very new in the mixing-clashing-prints department, follow this simple rule: Stick to the same color family. This should assuage your fears a bit. Kirsten Stewart channels this look perfectly in her Proenza Schouler ensemble.  Or you may also go for smaller prints.

However, for the fashion adventurous—and I applaud …

New year, new trends. What’s hot for 2010

I am excited about the trends for 2010 mainly because I still have a lot of this stuff in my closet from a few years back!   These looks are all over fashion runways, online, and in fashion magazines.

1. Mixed prints -  This includes any combination of, well, mixed prints!  A striped shirt with a floral skirt, a floral dress with patterned tights, a striped dress with patterned vest… the combinations are endless.  I suppose you could simply not match anything you wear  and you are simply a trendsetter.  The rules of fashion are interesting that way.

2. The Wedge- I love Wedges and have never stopped wearing them.  One of my favorite deals was a pair of Chanel wedges found on sale for 75% off.    I am obsessed with these Jeffrey Campbell wedges and here is a more versatile budget friendly wedge option.  For those who like to splurge -add these Burberry wedges to your collection.

Nail polish colors for winter/spring.

opiQ – What are the hot nail polish colors I must have this winter and spring?
Melissa – Roswell GA

A – Don’t let the dreary colors of winter dictate the nail polish colors you’ll wear in this season. In fact, go against it!  Neons and bright Crayola colors are not just for summer. I love everything bright and fun—pink, blue, orange, etc.  Stock up on shocking pinks, turquoise and yellows , or try Essie Pink Parka.

Want something more “sedate”? Nude-pinks are a classic, and they’re ultra feminine.  E.L.F Nude or Fair Pink are just $1!!

If you want something more classic and really season-appropriate, grays and blacks are great too. Cover Girl midnight black (shop online at drugstore.com – buy one, get one 50% off), Opi Russian Navy or Revlon Black Lingerie are great colors.

Zoya Casey is super vampy and a best seller- very hot ladies!  But of course, fire engine red is a classic—and it always looks sexy on anybody, especially on toes. Cover Girl, Red …

Art of the (Burberry) Trench

trenchHappy New Year!  I’m starting 2010 in a big way by finally making a Burberry Trench investment.  I’ve been obsessing about it for years, and after discovering this new website, I’m sold. 

A Burberry Trench is a timeless classic that dates back to the early 1900’s.   It’s chic and stylish look works with most fashion from jeans to dresses. Nothing is more worthy of the big bucks than the Burberry brand.   The coat will last for decades and the cost-to-wear ratio will work out over time.  (That’s my justification for all major purchases.) 

The following information might help convince you this is a must-have, or you can simply enjoy the photos.  Art of Trench is a fun browse for any fashion lover, especially Burberry fans.  It is completely dedicated to the Burberry Trench and includes candid photos of ‘regular’ people (btw, all of these ’regular people’ are beautiful) wearing the coat.  The images are taken in various cities across the county and …
