Fashion Amour

 Paris Fashion Week was held this last week and while we run into many different looks from what was seen at New York Fashion Week, I seriously gush over all of the maj designs. Totes bananas and something to keep your eyes out for as we wait anxiously for Spring. 

Christian Dior proves that stripes can be fun and flirty with this black and pink striped dress. They also gave us a preview of several floral looks, which is proving to be hot for Spring 2013!

Givenchy opts for a feminine and funky look while softening this season's colors with pastels and neutrals. This is something very different from last years constructions.

One of my favorite looks for Spring 2013 was presented by Balmain. Proving that you can mix and match all different kinds of prints, they choose simple hair, jewelry and shoes. This is the way to do it.

Lanvin's collection was very dark and whimsical while adding a touch of posh. Seeing mostly dark hues, the feel for this years selection of clothing for Lanvin is edgy yet totally elegant. Keep a look out for all different shades of blue like the black and navy dress above.

Kenzo has incorporated the bright colors and prints for the seasons clothing. With floral being one of spring and summer's important looks (as shown above), we must realize this is a must-have look to purchase before your next door neighbor.

Even if some of these designs are not your "style," try to keep in mind the things I am telling you and not necessarily the pattern the model is modeling! Hope you lovely dolls have enjoyed the Spring/Summer 2013 Paris Fashion Week Preview and if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. That is what I am here for. Have a great weekend!

Walk This Way

With fall in full effect, we cannot fail to forget one of the greatest fall wardrobe pieces... BOOTS! It's super important to grab your favorite pair now while they are new to stores and sure to have your size. I pulled my favorite celebrity looks and am seriously gushing over each and every pair. While they are styled to the supreme and absolute in the pictures below, you must realize it is vital to pick up a pair of booties, knee high or thigh high boots for this fall and winter. 

Ginnifer Goodwin seriously rocks her black wedge boots. I admire her edgy look that consists of her pixie hair cut, black dress, long gray sweater and shoulder bag. Seriously hope one of you pursues this vibe and puts it into full effect.

Katherine Heigl, one of the cutest moms to date, looks darling in her suede tan boots that match her handbag and belt. She opts for a bold green top and nude sweater to perfect the ensemble.

SkinnyGirl, Bethenny Frankel incorporates her super adorbs rain boots with her outfit of choice. She works them with a white tee, dark washed jeans and super smashing red hand bag. It is always appropriate to have a pair of rain boots for those rainy days.

While out with daughter Suri, Katie Holmes models a super comfy purple sweater, jeans and ankle boots. This look is the ideal way to dress down a pair of booties and go casual. Throw your hair in a pony tail (like Katie) for full effect.

Gwyneth Paltrow looks chic and fab in a gray blazer, jeans and matching suede gray booties. I love this ensemble because she adds a bit more sass with her big, long light gray scarf. Don't forget your sparkly accessories to go along.

On the go girl, Jessica Biel is off to run errands in her knee high boots. On those warmer fall days, pair your boots with a tee shirt and sweater vest and shorts like Jess. If the chill is still in the air or you plan on taking this ensemble into the evening, pair the look with jeans instead.

Bible! Who doesn't want to raid Kim Kardashian's wardrobe! Obsessing over this look, I love how well she understands fashion. Her boots are amaze and the specific hue is the "it" color for fall. Pair your thigh high "wine" colored boots with a classy blazer, blouse and skinny pant like Kim. Opt for some matching jewelry and handbag to complete the look.

Vanessa Hudgens prances around the city in cute multi color, brown and tan boots while she couples them with an adorable black sweater, jeans and fringe handbag. She makes the ensemble look effortless yet chic while not trying too hard.

Christina Ricci knows how to own a pair of biker boots. Casual yet fierce, we admire the way she pairs these specific boots with a navy blue blazer, light blue blouse, skinny jeans and black printed handbag. Way to go girlfriend!

Fall Fash 411

While I sit and write on this chilly and rainy afternoon, I realize it is time to let fall back into our lives again and what better way to do that than with fashion! Below are some fun new ways to add to your autumn filled wardrobe. 

Collar Necklaces
Collar Necklaces have become very popular lately and are such a versatile accessory. Be sure to pair them with plain tops or dresses, like Elizabeth Banks. For more detail or volume, add a sparkly collar necklace over your neutral one.

Mustard Yellow Blouses
Mustard Yellow is a darker shade of the yellow you sport in summer. This color presents a fall vibe and looks awesome on most people. Be sure to accompany your blouse with dark washed jeans like Kristen Dunst.

Leather Leggings
Leather Leggings are one of falls most exciting trends. Sport your leather like Kim Kardashian with cute and funky tops and accessorize with neutral and simple jewelry.

Purple Heels
Opt for some fantastic purple heels and model them around work or while out shopping. Work them with an all black ensemble like Megan Fox or with a cute LBD and flashy jewels.

Mixed Greens
Jessica Alba knows what is up while she totes around an adorable mixed green shoulder bag. Look for accessories with different shades of green and pair them with neutral colors and prints.

All Navy
Navy is like the new neutral. You can flaunt an all navy ensemble and look totally put together like Camilla Belle. She goes gorge in this color while working together some classic pieces.

Gushing Over Kate

I wanted to take a minute and obsess over this adorable style from one of my favorite girls, Kate Moss! Seriously, how charming is she in her gray biker jacket, white tee, matching gray skinny jeans and sassy brown fringe boots! Like, I am literally dying. I love love love how her hair looks like she just jumped out of bed (few can do this) while she takes a lovely stroll with her sweet dog, Archie. Perf! I have always admired Kate and her impeccable style. She can make a casual outfit look so chic and darling. "When it comes to dressing, I follow my feeling and just get dressed…" -KM

Fash In 360 (Destination Four)

Backpacking around the world from now until early next year, my longtime childhood friend, Ashley, is taking photographs around the world to assemble a portfolio for future jobs. Along the way, she will be sending information and some photographs regarding the latest fashion trends from each city she visits. I am seriously ecstatic to have the opportunity to share this firsthand information with you, my readers. With Ashley's endeavor, we can develop and evolve our own personal favorites into our wardrobe at home.

As she was exploring Croatia, Ashley describes the fashion in the area of Croatia to be beachy with tons of warm weather pieces. Full of summer dresses, rompers, oversized pants that tighten at the ankles and lots of sandals. Below are a few pictures of Croatia fash.
