Hey ladies! Have you been feeling the recent bucket bag trend? I remember bucket bags being really popular when I was little. They were everywhere, and then they kinda just went away as trends do. Now, again as trends do, they are back. I love bucket bags. I think that they are really sharp. I also like how they can come in various colors, sizes, and fabrics in whatever price point you want. Medium to large sized leather and canvas ones look really good with casual outfits during the day. Smaller sized silk and satin ones look great at night. Don’t forget the tassels. A great bucket bags has awesome tassels. Are you in to this trend?

Accessory Minute- The Mini Bag

Today in Accessory Minute, I wanted to write about one of my favorite accessory trends of the past few years-the mini bag. I love mini bags. I am one of those people that try to carry their entire home in a bag, purse, backpack, whatever. Mini bags force you to cut things down to the bare necessities. You can’t carry 20 lip glosses in a mini bag, and that is the beauty of the mini bag.

A little kitschy and very apres ski, the fair isle sweater has been a preppy staple for some time until the cool kids got their hands on it this season.

Perfect for bundling up during the winter, the focus of this sweater is the slightly cheesy pattern (reindeer and penguins welcome), usually in horizontal stripes across the chest.

So anyone can wear this pattern in their most flattering sweater style, whether it’s a crew, cowl or v-neck. Just make sure to pair it with something rough and tumble to tone down the cuteness.

Bisous!

Following in the trend of the globe-trotting eccentric, turbans have made a surprising come-back. Once popular in the 1940’s with the screen sirens and a kick-back from the 19th century Orientalism movement, they’re now the best friend of a fashionista with a bad hair day.

The interesting dilemma when wearing a turban is to act like you are not, in fact, wearing a turban. To keep an element of laid-back cool pair it with something unexpected and relaxed.

Who’s Rockin Combat Boots this Season?

GUESS “Sensation” Lace-Up Combat Boots

As you guys may know, NYC fashion week is starting and I, like so any other fashion obsessed individuals, am extremely excited and estatic. Fashion week marks the beginning of fall fashion and since it occurs in the same week as Labor Day, I guess it’s safe to say that fall is officially here and ready to take action. I love the fall season because I’m a huge boot lover; and what better time to buy a pair of funky boots than the fall? Since the weather’s cooling down; boots should be a MUST on every girl’s shopping list this month. A hot shoe trend that is making it way from the runway to the sidewalk is the laced-up combat boots. Although motorcycle boots were huge last year, the laced-up combat boots are just simply cuter, more durable and way more stylish. With the whole military-wear trend going on, laced up combat boots are so in this season.
