Ikat

20 Jun

Patterns are not normally my thing. I buy them but I rarely wear them. I can usually be found sporting solids, stripes, and small floral patterns. The bright and bold prints my eyes are attracted too don’t flatter me as well as smaller prints and solid colors. Lately I have found myself picking Ikat patterns out everywhere I go. I recently bought a purple and blue Ikat skirt from Old Navy (Which is no longer online) I have yet to wear. It is currently on a hanger in my room, displayed more as artwork. I am going to wear it soon, I am just trying to imagine the best way to style it for my body/lifestyle. Until then, I will continue to lust over this centuries old print as it stands the test of time.

Fashion Trend: Stripes

31 May

This summer stripes are popping up everywhere and I love it. It is no secret that I love everything preppy and nautical (seen here) and stripes are a major player in that trend. From rugby to pin, I love all stripes. They are versatile and can be paired with almost anything: patterns, floral, solids, it is hard to find something stripes won’t compliment. Recently, when shopping, I look around my dressing room and see stripes everywhere. It is a trend I am currently loving and can see myself loving for the long haul. Check out some of my favorite finds below:

Contrast Stripes: Forever 21 – $14.80

Tuxedo Dress: 71 Stanton – $161

Striped Skirt: Free People  – $78

Striped Canvas Belt: M  Missoni – $125

Striped Dress: H&M – $14.95

This Trend Has Me Hooked

24 May

One of my favorite websites is style.com. They have fabulous coverage of fashion week, are always ahead of trends, and are the place to go for fashion focused news. This morning while browsing the site I discovered an article of an emerging trend, crochet. When reading about new trends, I often surprise myself by realizing I have already embraced it. (This happened here). Recently I purchased this vest and an open stitch sweater from express (no longer online), both crochet. I have recently found myself flocking towards pieces with crochet detailing. It can work for most any outfit. The detail can be whimsical and add a hippie feel or very defined and dress up an outfit. Here are some pieces I am currently lusting over:

 Isabel Marant, $237

 

 Chanel, $2,450

 

 Club Monaco, $169

 

 Alexander Wang, $850

 

 Forever 21, $29.80

 

Enzo Angiolini, $99

Happy Easter

22 Apr

I’m heading home to my parents house for the weekend to celebrate Easter.  I’m planning an Easter egg hunt for all my cousins like we used to do when we were little. Instead of using platic eggs (which are basically unbreakable by little hands and perfect for competitive hunts) I am going to use real eggs that I will color myself. Feeling in the mood to insprire myself for this project, I decided to search for the perfect Easter outfit. Check out some of my picks below (all in appropriate Easter colors of course).
