Colored Skinnys?

Hello lovelies!  One of my constant  fashion battles concerns pants.  I am a denim lover, and always end up wearing jeans.   Yes, jeans are super cute, but sometimes they get a little tiring.  I love dresses and skirts, but for school, jeans are usually the most comfortable thing. 

This season I have been seeing a lot of colored skinny jeans.  At first I was not a big fan, but I have grown to like them if paired with the right components.  In the pictures above, I really like the bright emerald pants with the gray and black.  Also, the turquoise works very well with the light pink.  If you are going to try out a colored pant, I would definitely make sure to wear very subtle and neutral tones to balance the brightness on bottom.  The pants should be the main focus of your outfit.  I will try out this look, and exchange my jeans for a pair of colored skinnys!

New York Fashion Week

Hi lovelies!  

As you know it is Fashion Week in NYC; the week that  someday I hope to attend.  For now, I am enjoying looking at all of the incredible trends on the wonderful invention called the Internet!  

I have been on and can't stop viewing all the Spring 2012 Collections.  So much for getting my homework done!  My favorites have been Oscar de la Renta, Nanette Lapore, and J.Crew.  

Oscar de la Renta has outdone himself this time!  I absolutely love the two looks I have posted.  The light pink feather dress is gorgeous.  It has beautiful texture and looks so glamorous.  Also, I love how a more casual shirt is placed over an amazing ball gown.  The contrast is magnificent.  As for Nanette Lapore, the bright colors she is using are fantastic.  The pink and blue printed bathing suit looks so fashion-forward.  The neon yellow crop top with the orange skirt is a great example of color blocking that is still going to be "in" for spring.  

 What I love about J.Crew is that every piece  is beautifully simple and can be paired with many different items.  The pink sparkle skirt paired with the pink blouse is extremely classy and elegant, and I love the orange accessories.  As for the other outfit, I want it!  The leopard shorts with the green top are  chic and can be worn anywhere.  I can't wait to see more Spring 2012 Collections!

Brandy Melville

This past weekend I went shopping with some friends at the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica.  We spent most our time at Brandy Melville, a super cute store that is ridiculously affordable.  I cannot believe that I had not discovered this store months ago when it first opened!  I bought four adorable tops for $95.  All ranging in price from $20-$35.  The only down side was that the store filled with customers, so the staff was not able to keep up with refolding the merchandise and, as a result, displays were messy.  However, I'm not complaining!  There was no way the staff could keep up with the flow of customers looking to find the latest styles at great prices.  There are multiple locations and everyone should definitely stop by.  I am already planing my next visit!
