It's a Tribal Party!

Bold, Electric & Colorful Tribal Prints were seen all over the Runway for Fall/Winter2011. Although we saw tribal inspiration in a lot of summer clothes and accessories, and have seen it before, it's here to stay!....Well at least for another season. We will continue to see beautiful tribal prints in fall/winter boots, outerwear, handbags, jewelry & of course clothing. I actually love this trend! I have a few necklaces that are right on point with the tribal trend and maybe even a piece or two of clothing. I'm excited about seeing more of this trend for Fall/Winter! It's a Tribal Party Baby!

The photo to the left, is a small dress collection I made in the Summer of 2009. Very Tribal/Bohemian Inspired...thought it went well with this post! The mixes of colors and patterns, wooden bangles and necklaces, feathered earrings, & colorful braided head bands.....SO TRIBAL! This explains the fashion cycle, being that this is over 2 years ago and is coming back strong for Fall2011. I've always incorporated tribal, ethnic & bohemian taste into my style. That's why I keep going back to it & I LOVE that we are going to see more of it for Fall. Oddly enough, my senior collection for college was also African Tribal Inspired. It's just my thing, I love it!

How do you feel about this Trend! Will you be bold enough to add a touch of TRIBAL to your wardrobe?

Vera Wang Designs 3 dresses for Kim!

So, I'm sure I'm not the only one who has a love/hate relationship with the Kardashian's. I hate that now a days everyone gets a reality show and becomes "Famous" for doing absolutely Nothing! Kim's wedding was described as "ROYALTY." C'mon, really! But on the flip side, I do watch the show and contribute to the ratings...that's love/hate lol. But any way, they hyped up these 3 Vera Wang dresses she wore, and I know that even if you hate the Kardashian's, if you love Fashion like I do, you were at least interested to see what these custom designed dresses looked like...Weeks after the actual event, pics are finally out and I'm honestly not impressed. Nothing about them pops and they seem very average for such an over the top event. But of course if you haven't seen them already, I figured I'd share. Also found the actual sketches of the gowns by designer Vera Wang!

All the girls, including Mom, wore all white gowns. Personally feel like we're looking at 5 different brides, didn't like this idea.

And that's all folks!.....I've been waiting to see what these dresses looked like since they got married, and was let down. Tell me what you think of the designs!

Orange you over Summer?

So if you follow fashion, you know that new trends doesn't only mean what silhouettes are in for the season or what era we are getting inspiration from. It also means what colors we'll be wearing. As we get ready for the cooler weather and wait for the leaves to fall and change colors, let me tell you what is the one color you might be seeing a lot of when you go shopping for Fall, ORANGE! Most popular in pure true vibrant orange and rust. Other colors that seem to be in trend for Fall 2011 are Burgundy, Dark Teal & Forest Green. I decided to focus on the Orange trend, being that we haven't seen orange as a trendy color for the colder season in a while. Something new and refreshing. It's bold and fun but could be a tricky color to play with. So be careful to not over do it!

Is this a color you'll be rocking this up coming season?
