Fashion Trends:: Cropped Camo and Pencil Skirts

Hey My Beauties; Hope your having a fashionable day!

Over the past few months; I noticed a fashion trend COMING through Seattle area. Read more below the image...



I would have to say the fashion trend flirts toward the side of a street look.

So I wanted to create a fashion collage to illustrate this street look to you. I chose the Wesley Camo Jacket; it gives the fashion trend the whole "street look".  I love the cropped effect it has, it accentuates the bustier top and the a-line of the pencil skirt.

Then I chose the Biker-Chic Faux Leather Bustier Top; it brings out a edginess to the street look with its faux leather material and it's sweetheart neckline.

The J Crew pencil skirt takes on a high street look; with the a-line straightness to it. But when you wear the cropped camo jacket it tones down the look giving it a rugged, street style.

Then finalize the whole street look with a few accessories from fashion labels Micheal Kor and Steve Madden. The high sandal and clutch bag definitely give it the final POP.

Then trim it with a chunky chain necklace and gold n black tone belt. Is this a fashion trend you would wear? I sure could!

Read more below... 

a glamorous look badgley mischka designer evening dresses

*The Attitude*
Actually I wouldn't say attitude; I would say having 
self-confidence in yourself as a person.

Self-confidence allows you to walk into 
a room of strangers and demand the ROOM.

A strong, arched back, with a alluring pose 
as you glance from face to face.

Persons looking and staring with their jaws dragging on 
the floor; saying who is this gorgeous creature 
who dares to grace our evening.

*The Dress*
accentuate 
a sultry, sexy, breathtaking silhouette.

So picturesque, giving allure to a 
asymmetrical, simplistic EVENING gown. 

Detail draping to enhance a glamorous look. 

Badgley Mischka is the place.

*The Accessories*
 Black and gold color tones strike a pose as they 
accent the designer evening dress.

Dancing, flirting with each step as you walk across the room.

A gold clutch in hand. 
Heels arched in a pair of black suede pumps.

Glamorous, shimmering effect of faux pearl swirls 
and chunky chains flatter the perfect look.

Fashion Statements:: The VALENTINO Tapestry-Lace Mini Dress

Happy Wednesday my lovelies. Today I want to chat about fashion statements. You may ask; What is a fashion statement? Read more below the digital fashion collage...

the valentino tapestry lace mini dress

Personally my thoughts on it are as follows. One could create a fashion statement by wearing clothing or accessories that draw attention to the person who wears them.
In most cases the clothing or accessory piece is special. Usually brilliant or loud in color; in the case of jewelry it could be something eccentric.

But in the case of fashion label VALENTINO; they created a fashion statement that was inspired by the painting of Vermeer. Fluid in bold mint, red raspberry, blue color tones, and tapestry lace. The VALENTINO "Tapestry-Lace Mini Dress" is it's own fashion statement and definitely constitutes drawing attention to it. A breathless and elegant masterpiece.

The VALENTINO "Tapestry-Lace Mini Dress" needs little added to it. Maybe add a pair of BCBMAXAZRIA "Onnie Metallic-Heel Pumps" and a Marc Jacobs "Red 1984 Leather Satchel". Then wrap it up with a simple ponytail hairstyle and your set for quite a bit of attention.

7 Pros and Cons of Buying a $2390 Saint Laurent Shredded Chain Embellished Skinny Jeans

Today I have a tough decision; I want to purchase these gorgeous, punk-chic style Saint Laurent shredded chain-embellished skinny jeans. But I must weigh out the pros and cons of purchasing them.

Join me in my decision making process!

1. CONS:: The Price Tag
One determining factor in purchasing something; is the price tag and whether it's affordable and within your budget. If you have set yourself a fashion style spending budget...then these Saint Laurent shredded chain-embellished skinny jeans may not be for you...the price tag for this pair of skinny jeans alone is $2390. OUCH! That will put a crimp in your fashion style spending budget...

2. CONS:: The Dry Cleaning Bill
Being that these skinny jeans are a specialty clothing piece; being shredded, and torn, then too have to silver chain embellishments added into to the detailing; they will require special washing treatments from the dry cleaners. Read more pros & cons below the image...

3. PRO OR CON:: How often Would I Wear These?
Are these a pair of skinny jeans I would wear a few times a month; does this constitute the price tag. The more I wear them the more dry cleaning, the more the wear and tear on these speciality skinny jeans. Hum!

4. PROS:: The fashion Statement
Just wearing these Saint Laurent shredded, tattered and torn chain-embellished skinny jeans alone is a fashion statement in itself. Let alone the embellishing these skinny jeans with the appropriate clothing and accessory pieces will create quite the STIR. They give off the vibe of being punk and chic at the same time. What do you think?

5. PROS:: The Conversation Piece
Can you imagine the conversation and finger pointing that will occur when you walk through the mall with a pair of these Saint Laurent shredded chain-embellished skinny jeans. Others will say; where did you get those chic skinny jeans from?

6. PROS:: To Crop or Not to Crop

Saint Laurent shredded chain-embellished skinny jeans have such a unique style and fit; you could wear a long or short sleeve crop top. Or a loose bulky sweater over the top of them. Maybe just a casual Old Navy tee would work.

But for my personal preference; being that the skinny jeans have such a high end price tag. I would chose a top that is very stylish. Such as a sleeveless lace peplum top or a crop top and a open end cardigan.

7. PROS: The Accessories
Personally I might go with a big over sized handbag or a cross-body bag. Then pair it with a some bright colored heels. Silver jewelry pieces is a must to accent the silver chain embellishments in the skinny jeans.

The Decision; I usually give myself a spending budget of $500 a month. I have been so good of keeping within my budget too. But I'm jumping in with both legs into these Saint Laurent shredded chain-embellished skinny jeans. I deserve it! I'm a stay at home fashion blogger, mom extraordinaire and work my little butt off 24/7 taking care of my family...I'm worth it!

High End Fashion Trends:: The Wes Gordon Metal Chain Pencil Skirt

Hope you are having a glamorous Thursday! 

Today I was doing an online search for a few trunk shows from fashion designers abroad. I came across Moda Operandi and their TRUNK SHOW with "fashion designer" Wes Gordon.

OK...I can hear it now! What the hell is a TRUNK SHOW? 
Let me explain it to you...a trunk show is where fashion designers present there clothing lines directly to stores or selective customers. In most cases it allows store personnel to preview and/or purchase merchandise before it is made available to the public.

In the olden day; the term "trunk show" was used because of how dresses were shipped in old wooden trunks. Guess we learn something new every day!

Back to my online search; I was searching for some high end fashion clothing pieces I could write about...You know me I love serving up fashion take-out with it being hot n sizzling. Read more below...

But the clothing piece I found was definitely high end fashion; it came with a whopper price tag of $6,990. Whoa!

Wes Gordon designed a metal chain pencil skirt. This metal chain skirt is really made of metal, featuring a open lattice construction...sizzling with Swarovski crystal embellishments too.

I created a fashion collage to illustrate how I would where such a high end fashion piece. There's nothing more flattering than showing a little midriff. So, I went with a Theysken's Theory white fanette top to accent the slim lines the metal chain pencil skirt creates.

Then a Stylebop leather jacket with silver fox fur. I also wanted to keep this high end fashion trend sizzling with a pair of Alexander McQueen platform ankle booties and a Pierre Hardy black n white calf stripe bag.

So, I'm curious of what your take is on this!
