Fall/Winter Must Haves

Fall/Winter must haves
 (links to items below)




Hey guys! Hope y'all had a great weekend! I apologize for my posts being so sparse, but you know... LIFE gets in the way. If you haven't noticed I like doing posts on some of my favorite items of the moment, and with this one I wanted to share my must have items for fall/winter.

Argan Oil is definitely having its moment in skincare as you will find it everywhere, even in your facial cleanser. One of my favorite oils is from the Moroccanoil line. This does wonders for your skin during the winter and the scent is simply amazing.

Sweatshirts and a Curb Link Chain had to be on my list since you know I'm a Lil Obsessed...see what I did there....no.....umm ok. For fall everyone has their usual go to pea coat or trench so I wanted to list something that was a little different from the norm. This Cape Coat is lovely and I am definitely going to  add it to my coat collection.

Faux Fur Vest is a no brainer for fall as you can style it up or down but the Feather skirt is a great trend worth trying for the holiday season...maybe with textured tights!

The Block Heel by now is a closet staple, but this pair from Zara were just to gorgeous to not list and lastly, the Pantone color of the year is Emerald Green, so by adding this color anywhere in your fall wardrobe, whether on your nails or with a clutch, you will be good to go. I have this Zoya nail color and it goes with everything I wear and looks great with my skin tone.

Thanks for reading!

Fashion Ed: Fashion Flow Theories

Today I want to discuss the theories of Fashion Flow: Downward, Horizontal, and Upward. You probably have heard these terms before but I want to go into further detail as to what they mean and the difference between them.

Downward Flow Theory ( Trickle - Down)

This theory is the most widely known and the oldest theory of fashion adoption. The basic definition in short-to be identified as a true fashion, styles must first be adopted by those at the top of the social pyramid, then the style is eventually accepted at the lower social levels. This theory assumes that there is a social hierarchy in which lower income people seek to identify with more affluent people. Because those at the top want to disassociate themselves with the lower social level, once the fashion or style has flowed to the lower social level, the upper classes will reject it and move on to the next new fashion. The phrase "that is so last season" comes to mind when I think of this theory. Again, I feel that …

Fashion Ed: Fashion Adoption Theory

When a style or trend debuts, whether it's trying out a new BB cream or obtaining a pair of trendy cut out boots, when would you say it is that you catch on or adapt to a trend? The fashion adoption theory was one of my favorite theories to learn, as it tells you how a style or trend starts and ends.
Fashion Adoption: A process on how and individual accepts and purchases a new fashion or a style. This innovation adaption curve plots out the five categories and basically shows that with time, any new style or trends popularity rises and eventually fades.

There are five categories that describe how early a consumer adopts a new fashion compared with others: Fashion Innovators, Fashion Opinion Leaders, Mass Market Consumers, Late Fashion Followers, and Fashion Isolates and Laggards.
Tartan is trending right now, so I feel that it would be a great example to follow.


Fashion Innovators


Consumers who adopt a new fashion soon after it appears on the market relatively earlier than most othe…

Fashion Ed | Sustainability and Fast Fashion

Because today is Earth Day, I thought it would be a great opportunity to talk about Sustainability in the fashion industry. So what does sustainable mean:
Sustainable - of, relating to , or being a method of harvesting or using a resource so that the resource is not depleted or permanently damaged.
Sustainable Fashion - also called eco fashion , is a part of the growing design philosophy and trend of sustainability, the goal of which is to create a system which can be supported indefinitely in terms of environmentalism and social responsibility.
Ecouterre.com or Eco Fashion World are great resources to learn more about sustainable fashion and the textile industry. With that said, you can not talk about sustainability in the fashion industry and not mention the fast fashion culture and the  stigma that surrounds it. 
Fast fashion is the production of garments, designed similar to those seen on fashion week runways and magazines, manufactured cheaply and quickly so that the consumer can tak…
