Holiday Trend 2013: Baroque
Gold and black are one of the most popular color combinations this season. Not only are they popular by themselves, but they are executed in a way that screams Baroque. Ornate details, gilding, texture, and use of rich textiles are executed. Versace’s current collection is all about Baroque (scarf and cheetah dress) which trickled down to the fast fashion retailer Charlotte Russe (phone case). No matter the budget, one can stay on trend with the Baroque style this holiday season.

For this final look, I sort of just threw everything together. I paired this fuschia skirt with a black and white mesh print cardigan and layered a cowl neck tank underneath. I finished it off with a simple small jeweled necklace to pull it all together. 

This is probably my favorite look from the session. These sprinkle print pant was the starting point for this look. I added a black knit tank to keep it simple and accessorized it with a chunky black and white tribal print belt and big sunglasses to top it off. 

It’s no suprise that I enjoy mixing prints as long as you don’t look like a hot mess! This blush polka dot knit tank goes well with the dotted skirt. I added an open black cardigan to make it office appropriate and a skinny belt with a tassel necklace to finish off the look. 

I was inspired by this rust and black striped tank for this look. I paired the tank with a long black knit maxi skirt. To add interest to this look, I added the beaded belt and multi-color gold necklace for an african type vibe, 

Long time no style session! For this first look, i wanted to style this dress because it’s not selling in the store(which is hard for me to believe). I wanted to add a pop of color (the mustard belt) to this leopard print a-line dress. A simple black blazer polishes off this look with a simple gold necklace.

Current events:

This facebook post was brought to my attention last night. On the consumer side, I praise this bold and daring move. I am not a size two so anything plus size and promoting healthy body image I’m all for. But as a fashion major this concerns me. Taking fashion courses and even just paying attention to the runway, one learns that the “ideal” body for fashion is tall and lean. Even in fashion drawing the typical croquis (drawing model) is 9 heads long. Normal human figure is 8 but the 9th head gives the croquis length. Fabric looks and drapes better on a lean body as opposed to a curvier one. I’m not too sure if this will catch on to other stores or it’s just this one store rebelling. Thoughts?

What I’m Loving: Chambray Shirt

I’ve been seeing in Pinterest a lot of chambray shirts styled. This provoked me even more to buy one (LOFT). I wish I hadn’t delayed buying it for so long! IN LOVE!!

5 Reasons Why I’m Loving Chambray:

1. It goes with practically everything
2. It can be worn open, similar to a cardigan
3. It’s a great layering piece
4. It can be dressed up, or dressed down
5. It’s so stinkin comfortable!
