Fashion Ed: What is Fashion/Style?

When I hear the word fashion I immediately conjure up images from the pages of fashion magazines (duh) and replay scenes from The Devil Wears Prada and Clueless ( don’t judge me) in my head. From there I start thinking about the clothes I wear and wonder if it would be considered “fashionable” and start questioning my sense of style and on and on. After all of that pondering, i am left asking myself: what is fashion/style really? Well ,here is what I got.
The term Fashion by definition is: A popular style or practice that is accepted by a majority of a group. So right now I can say that the Peplum, is in fashion(believe me you’ve seen it everywhere) because it is popular right now and widely accepted, but fashion is not just for the apparel industry alone.

Automobiles and appliances are also fashion items( e.g., blenders that come in a multitude of colors). Almost every product sold is influenced by fashion and it is the customer who determines the fashion. How is that you say? Well to …

A lil obsessed: Lug sole shoes

ASOS Strider heeled loafers /Pour La Victoire Kerr/ ASOS Planet shoes/Sergio Rossi Freedom wedge (shoe photos from their respective sites)
I can't seem to get these shoes out of my mind at the moment. If your not sure what a lug sole is, it is the thick rubber sole with deep indentations usually found on work or hiking boots and is used to improve traction and stability. Some genius decided to combine the ruggedness of this sole with booties and high heeled pumps and voilĂ ...lug soles are in fashion. They were all over the fall runways and now I just need to get my hands on a pair....that's preferably on sale.


Fall Beauty Trend: Matte Nails

Another fall beauty trend I cant wait to try, Matte Nails. I think I'm going to try it with an unexpected color like a neon pink or teal instead of a black, oxblood or any other typical fall color. Now I just need to decide which topcoat I should use....

As If...pt.2

Here is another outfit inspired by Clueless. This outfit is worn in the scene where Cher and Tai make up while watching Travis skate. One of my favorites :)

H&M Online!!

OMG!! ok woooooosawwww... I just found out that after many delays, H&M has finally launched their online store for the US and I am hyperventilating. Alright maybe I'm not freaking out that bad but I have waited very very long time for this day.The closest H&M store for me is an hour and a half drive away! Of course I would make the drive but it was very seldom that I did. Along with every item that is sold in the brick and mortar locations being available online, they have also launched their H&M Home collection, and you can pre-order collections before they are launched. Not that I need even more of a reason to shop there. So now I am perusing the site and I just do not know how to deal right now. Hopefully I don't go all Confessions of a Shopaholic cray and max out my credit card(s)....we will see...my closet needs some serious updating anyway. Maybe a future post will be about my (massive) haul!

AS IF

So I recently watched Clueless and was reminded of why I seem to watch it over and over again and it never gets old. I love the outfits in the film and have always wanted to emulate them in real life so i would say that this is my attempt. I'm going to post some boards (I'm currently obsessed with polyvore) featuring modern versions of the iconic costumes. Hope you like them!

Weekend Ready

I love a good old tank dress! Its easy and breezy to wear when you just wanna get up and go, specially on the weekend. I recently acquired one and am now thinking of ways to style the oh so simple dress. I made this collage and thought the brown bag and sandals go really well with it along with a giant over sized watch. Now let the hunt for the accessories began!
