Trend Alert- The high-low skirt

Also known as the “mullet skirt” this trend has landed from the runways of Alexander McQueen, Lanvin, and Antonio Berardi to almost every store! It’s super fun, easy, and versatile. This skirt has a dramatic look to it because it combines both the mini and maxi skirt all in one. Perfect for spring and summer to show off those sexy tan legs, too. Day or night, simply perfect for every occasion.

The trick with the mullet skirt is to honor your body type and height. Highlight as much or as little, with whichever length works for you. There are a lot of different lengths and more dramatic cuts than others. The longer your legs, the longer the maxi can be.

Now, I just need the spring to hurry so I can rock this trend! 😉

Trend Alert- Gypsy Inspired

Every Spring the hippie/bohemian trend updates and gets a fresher look. This Spring look out for the gypsy inspired look. Designers such as Emilio Pucci, D&G, and Altuzzara have graced their Spring runways with this flow-y, 70’s inspired, and brightly colored trend.

Designers transforming their catwalks into caravans included Joseph Altuzarra, who cited the gypsy comic-book hero Corto Maltese as an inspiration for his brocade breeches and shearling toggle coats; Dolce & Gabbana, who merged Sicilian and Romany currents in their fall show; and, more subtly, Mr. Dundas himself, who revisited his nomadic theme in a gown alluding to the Yves Saint Laurent ’70s gypsy look. Diverse as they are, those shows are the latest expression of a popular fascination with generic gypsy culture. Gypsies are “definitely a huge influence right now,” said Ed Burstell, the managing director of Liberty in London.

 I like this trend because it very well suits my style, we all have our own look and experimenting with fashion can always be fun and unexpected. You don’t necessarily have to have a single kind of look all the time- I love to mix it up. My wardrobe is so eclectic and that suits me. Trying new trends can inspire you to venture out into different kinds of fashion era’s and times. When I think of the gypsy look I automatically think about the 70’s! Very true to its time.

L.A.M.B Spring 2012 RTW

One of my favorite designers has to Gwen Stefani, she is so eclectic and versatile with her style I just love her! I’ve been a fan since No Doubt and still am.. This is her latest Spring 2012 line and I am completely obsessed with each and every piece. From the bright neon accessories, to the messy buns, and oversized pants I adore this collection! I would literally wear every single piece all the way down to the bags, LOVE LOVE LOVE. She never seems to let me down, always brings a new twist with the bold prints and interesting details. One of my faves, much love and respect to her creativity and I only hope she keeps inspiring us naturalista fashionistas with her looks.

Spring into Sweetness

I am just so eager for the spring season to come in full effect. This season I am looking forward to the fab trend of pastel colors. I’ve always loved the sweetheart feel of light pastel colors, especially on my nails 😉 This spring 2012 RTW runways are just flowing with these fun and lush colors. Cotton candy pinks and blues mixed with minty greens and lemon drop yellows. So fun and so feminine, LOVE. White lace is also a huge trend along with the pastels that I am loving. Mixing the two is just a match made in heaven.

“After the hardness of Fall, we wanted something gentle and kind, fragile but strong, too,” said designer Marc Jacobs

Marc Jacobs designed an effortlessly chic line for Louis Vuitton Spring 2012 RTW. From the prom queen tiaras, to the all white carousal background, to the shoes I just adored the whole concept. Sugar and spice seemed to be the theme of the show and I was a fan of every part of it. I get so much inspiration from amazing designers such as Marc Jacobs and this line truly has me ready for Spring!

Basketweave Babe

“Wicker seems so fresh now. It feels sophisticated and handcrafted at the same time.” – Peter Dundas (Emilio Pucci’s creative & artistic director)

 I’ve really been into this upcoming trend of the basketweave bag for spring. It has a total effortless chic look to it and the best part is that it adds a little vintage flair to any outfit. There are so many different kinds out there, whether it’s complete basketweave or just a hint of it, it’s truly a look you would want for this spring! My favorite colors to pair it with are vibrant ones because of the neutral tone that most bags come in. I like the neutral kinds because you can pair it with any color and it compliments perfectly. The color toned ones are super fun too though, especially for making it a statement bag. Check out some of these to get inspired.
