I know we are just getting into the holiday and winter season posts here at TFAS, but LaRoque just debuted her Spring 2011, and I am so proud of her. You might recall that I interviewed Annabelle in her studio last Spring. She had big dreams for her custom brand, and they are definitely beginning… Continue reading LaRoque Spring 2011 Debuts
Dressing up like your boyfriend is soooooo last season people. Thank goodness, the masculinity meets femininity trend is fading and girls and starting to dress like girls again. What I discovered from viewing several fashion collections throughout the month is that many designers are bringin’ sexy back and I’m loving it. Derek Lam, Chloé and… Continue reading Fashion Week Proves Sexy Is Back In!
Paris Fashion Week is over and that means that all of the major fashion weeks are done until February and I can now go back to spending most of my time studying and finishing my DIY projects. Speaking of which; I completed this DIY last week from Alice & Daisy and am almost done with… Continue reading The Last Of Paris
For the Chanel show Karl Largerfeld used: Plus Size Model Crystal Renn, Supermodel and Karl’s Frienemy Ines de la Fressange, and Two of His Favorite Male Models plus a baby (Brad Koenig and son and Baptiste Giabiconi).
After some turmoil (Lindsay Lohan) , and then some more turmoil (Estrella Archs), Ungaro is a success. Giles Deacon did a really good job of bringing back some glory and none of the shame to the Paris fashion house. Photos are from Style.com. Enjoy!
I would say that I am a bit of all of them. What do you think of these collections? I love them all and am totally fantasizing about filling up my closet with these clothes. UGH! One day my Paris fashion dreams will come true! Photos from Style.com.
As much as I love paying attention to all of the different fashion weeks, it can get overwhelming. Can you imagine if I had to travel to all of them. I did New York this year that was crazy. I mean it was fun, but it was crazy ripping and running all over town, and… Continue reading Paris Fashion Week Is Still Going On!!!
This post is continued from yesterday’s post. Photos from Style.com. Balmain was not as good as I thought it would be. I was expecting Christophe Decarnin to stop taking the “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it” approach, but I see that isn’t happening anytime soon. The same skinny pants and boxy jackets were there.… Continue reading Paris Fashion Week Post Part Two
Paris Fashion Week Spring 2011 has begun and it is looking really interesting. I have been perusing Style.com, as usual, and I found some things that caught my eye for better or for worse. Some designers are doing really well and others are sticking to their same tired formula. Pictures from Style.com. Balenciaga is always… Continue reading Paris Fashion Week Spring 2011
Milan Fashion Week has come to an end and Paris Fashion Week is on day two. I am behind in shows due all kinds of craziness, but I wanted to bring you the last little bit of Milan Fashion Week, so you four shows that really made an impact on me during the last few… Continue reading The Last Of Milan Fashion Week
Official Statement From Christopher Kane: For this Versus SS11 collection I played with combining floral, tartan stripe prints from the Versus archive, to achieve twisted and drape mesh dresses. The colour palette is very bright and optimistic (yellow, green, purple, orange, red and blue). I have worked printed mesh into longer, leaner dresses, and knitwear for… Continue reading Christopher Kane and Versace’s Versus Line Get Plaidtastic
image via NYmag.com I love Burberry. Always had a knack for it although its style was a bit too mature for my taste. The plaid cashmere scarves and khaki trenches have always been super cute to me but always a bit too grown for my age. However, things are certainly different as Burberry has made… Continue reading Burberry Has the Hottest Fashion in London, Hands Down
The first office look came from DKNY. This one is from Versace, and I would probably add a black shell or even a red shell underneath so I wouldn’t get fired. Heh Heh!

I’ve been noticing that designers are mixing insanely bright colors with toned downed neutrals. I think it is perfect for spring. Don’t you just love bright colors after a cold, gloomy winter? Tell me what you think of these designs. Photos from Style.com.
Always wanted a front row seat to a Versace runway show? For the first time, Versace is excited to announce that they will live stream their Spring Summer 2011 women’s collection runway show from Milan exclusively for Official Versace Facebook fans. The show will take place on Friday September 24 at 11am EST / 5pm… Continue reading Versace Runway Show Will Stream Live
I was completely inspired by Jeremy Scott’s recent collection during NYFW. For a long time now I have been thinking in terms of trash, dark, or street inspired clothing not just because I think it’s an interesting concept, but because it puts a strong message out in terms of reusing materials and that fashion can… Continue reading The Ultimate “Trash” Fashion: Jeremy Scott NYFW
I had heard such rave reviews by the Twenty8Twelve show that I knew I was bound to love it or at least like it, but I was wrong. The denim pieces didn’t thrill me and some of the other dresses left me with a blah feeling. I usually like a lot of the pieces designed… Continue reading I Was Quite Surprised By This Fashion Show
