Blue Jean Baby

April 8, 2010

The fashion and beauty industry is obsessed with youth, why else would there be so many anti-aging eye potions and doll-faced 13-year-old’s strutting their stuff down the catwalks of Milan? Another staple for the youth of America are jeans. From those OshKosh B’gosh overalls we wore as toddlers scampering around the teeter-todder, to the Britney hiphuggers in 9th grade, and now our dark denim hipster skinny jeans.

We all wear them–except for Lady Gaga, I suppose.

Denim was all over the Spring 2010 runways. It was most notably featured in the Louis Vuitton collection, in a button-down shirt, pleated shorts, skirts, and a bohemian halter dresses. Stella McCartney showed a provincial button-down skirts and overall-esque pocket dress. Hervé Léger showed shredded, cut-out denim dresses and patchwork shrunken jackets.

This Fashionista is adding some of this Spring 2010 trend to her wardrobe in the form of a faded, button-down denim vest over a semi-sheer longsleeve white shirt, and high-waisted, black skinny jeans.

Hint: Try pairing these options with these awesome macramé booties.

Life’s a Peach

All this springy weather is making me feel, well, peachy keen. This Fashionista is sporting a super unique tee shirt that she cut up herself with a pop of peach peeking out underneath. Peachy and coral hues look fresh in surprising, small glimpses, but can be overwhelming if its the focal point of the ensemble. To replicate this Fashionista’s peek-a-boo peach bandeau, try this ruched tube piece in fluorescent orange or coral.

Unexpected Pearls

March 15, 2010

Although classic pearls are one of the few items in a Fashionista’s closet that will never get old, us Fashionistas like to mix things up. This Fashionista is rocking knit leggings detailed with faux black pearls with patent gray lace-up booties. This look is perfect for spring!

Hint: Use these Bronzing Pearls for a springy, sun-kissed glow.
