  • Luxe Lace for the Holidays

    Even though Spring and Summer are gone, many of the fashion trends of the two warm seasons have been sticking around in Fall, and don't plan on going anywhere for the Winter. Lace is one of those trends. But, it's not only the darker lace colors like blue and black that are popular right now - the lighter looks like ivory, white, and nude are sticking around for the colder months, too.

    Teen Vogue mentioned that the lead designers have been freshening up their Fall runways with the lace trend. Simone Rocha, Dolce & Gabbana, and Michael Kors all had lots of lace (in both dark and light colors) throughout their Fall Winter 2012/2013 Fashion Shows. Check out our favorite outfits from their runway shows below.

    Lace is definitely a classy way to dress up any outfit, and it without a doubt exudes the look and feel of the Holidays. The fabric is great to wear to a number of Holiday events - from Christmas parties with your family, Holiday parties with co-workers, or a New Year's Eve night out with friends.  Below are some of our favorite lace cocktail dresses that are similar to what the designers are showing off in their Fall/Winter fashion shows.

    Wearing the lighter lace colors to holiday events is a great way to stand out in the crowd if you want a bolder look; but, choosing a darker lace fabric is always a classic for the holidays, and you'll still be sure to turn heads. Do you like the lighter colors for the Fall/Winter months? Leave a comment below!

  • Fall’s Favorite Color: Oxblood!

    It may have a creepy name, but oxblood (you can also call it burgundy) has been all the rage lately, and for good reason; it takes the classic color red and gives it a new spin. The dark, rich shade adds a sense of sophisticated edginess to any outfit. It is also a versatile color when it comes to pairing it with an outfit; you can let oxblood be the stand-out color and wear it with neutrals like tan, gray, black, or brown, or let it take the back-seat and wear it with patterns like leopard print and houndstooth.

    If you are looking to try the color in a more subtle way, it also works great on nails or lips, or as an accessory to your favorite outfit on a bag, jewelry, or pair of shoes.

    Finding an oxblood-inspired dress will definitely give you an air of class and sexiness at any formal event. When wearing oxblood to a formal event, pairing it with neutral accessories will help to let your dress stand out amongst the crowd. The color looks great on both shorter and longer dresses, so pick one that you really love! Check out our formal dress choices below to rock the oxblood look.

  • Fall Colors: Nail Polish That Will Get You Noticed

    The summer sun has set and fall is officially here, so that of course means it is time to re-work your go-to nail polish colors for the crisp, cool weather ahead. While the nude shades of the summer are still “in,” it is time to add some darker tones to the mix, as well. Scroll down for a look at the fall lacquer trends to try out before it turns to winter time!

     

    Darker shades like midnight blue, burgundy, and dark purple are great for showing off your feminine side with a hint of ‘badass.’ The neon pink and yellow colors of the summer were fun, but it’s time to turn a new leaf (pun intended) and embrace that darker, gothic part of your femininity with the cooler weather ahead. The darker shades are always classics to choose when dressing up for formal occasions, as they can add a subtle hint of color to your outfit.

    If you’re truly looking to get into the season, choose nail polish colors that match the changing of the autumnal leaves, like rusty oranges and reds and golden yellows. These hues will look particularly great with that little black dress.

    Still not ready to give up on summer? The neutral colors of summer-time will always be a go-to polish because of its ability to be paired with any outfit! If you are looking for a more discrete color, neutral hues are always a dependable choice.

    Green has been a popular color for a while now, with variations in the color changing according to the season. For Fall, military-inspired green is the hue of choice. While this may be a more difficult color to match with a formal outfit, if you have the right dress (military-related colors like black, silver, or gold would work best), it would be a great way to stand out from the crowd.

    What fall occasions do you have coming up? Which polish color will you choose? Do you have any tips of your own to offer up? Leave some love in the comment section!

  • Look to the Stars!

    Who better to look to for inspiration then the cast one of the most talked about shows on TV?  Dancing with the Stars is a live show that features well known celebrities who are paired with professional dancers. As the weeks go by dances get more complicated, the outfits more flashy and sadly couples are eliminated. Fortunately we can use the show to our advantage. By pulling key components from their looks we can find you the perfect dress for your night out!

    Some of the biggest trends that we are seeing for this fall are featured on the show. Fringe is definitely back in as well as vibrant colors. Everyone knows that a little sparkle and shine goes a long way and sequins are always a must have. Another trend that comes and goes is animal print and we are seeing a lot of it this year. Sometimes it’s a full printed dress, but it can even be as eye-catching as a belt.

    Both Dancing with the Stars competitors Bristol Palin and Jennifer Gray have used fringe to follow their quick movements on the dance floor. Want everyone to turn and look at you while you’re bustin’ a move? Then you need a dress that can move with you! Continue reading
