Trend Alert: White Denim

White denim is really in this summer and can be a transitional piece for early fall wardrobes. My favorites are in the form of a bootcut jean and in a denim jacket. What do you think?

How To: Dress Christian Lacroix

One of my favorite collections for this fall is Christian Lacroix's monochromatic assortment of artful pieces. Christian Lacroix is a French designer who originally studied 18th century art in Paris, France. He once said:

His fall 2009 collection is very ready-to-wear. I am a college student on a budget, so although I may not always be able to afford the latest and greatest, I can draw inspiration from collections like Lacroix's. Here are my favorites, enjoy!

Would You Wear: DVF Pom Pom Hats

Diane von Furtsenberg's pom pom hats are the new "it" item in her Fall 2009 collection called Nomad. Critics are saying they are happy DVF is doing something that isn't safe. A blog that reports on New York Fashion Week said:

[Nomad] says wear all my clothes at once so I don’t need a suitcase when I travel...some people will disagree, but I don’t find this [collection] particularly interesting.

What do you think? Would you wear the pom pom hat?

Colored Bags Under $75!

A pop of color to your outfit can really make a big difference. During the fall and winter, I like to achieve this with scarves. However, now that it's warm, I like to add color through my handbag! It's a very functional way to give your outfit a bit of pop, and the great thing is that most durable bags are pretty timeless. You definitely want to consider your needs when purchasing a bag.

Things to consider are...

*Organization: do you have a lot of nick nacks or prefer to have specific pockets for you keys/cell phone/etc? Get a bag with a lot of pockets and/or that is sectioned off into different compartments

*Size: are you a minimalist, or do you carry a lot of cargo? Try and avoid buying a bag that is too big, bags are manufactured to hold stuff. If there is nothing in it, chances are the bag will not maintain its ideal shape

*Detail: do you like shine? studs? embroidery? This is more personal preference; however, less is more. Stick to bags with one type of detail. Stay away from sequins or rhinestones. I also am not a fan of faux fur, real fur, or snake skin print on bags, but that just might be me. Be careful with ruffles and fringe =)

*Shape: do you like boxier bags? Bowling bag shapes? This again, is personal preference. Some people like to have one of each, whereas I prefer hobo bags.

My favorite colors for bags are plum, gray/blue, and red. Here are some examples!

Deux Lux Pintuck Satchel



Old Navy Women's Faux-Leather Trim Canvas Totes

Newport News Quilted Bag

Kohl's Relic Leah Shoulder Bag

Roxy Bean Bag Handbag

Hurley Ava Oversized Bag

Top 8 Sandals for Summer!

I've decided to compile 8 sandals (in no particular order) that are great for this summer =) it can be overwhelming to decide what flat sandals to purchase; however, this list will give you some insight on what to look for when sandal shopping this summer. Enjoy!


-This is the most classic of all the sandals on this list and is a great basic if you are buying your first pair of gladiator-esque sandals. This will compliment pretty much any color pallet that you have in your wardrobe. Additionally, the strappy detailing accomplished the less-is-more look.


-Dolce Vita has so many great sandals this summer, it was really hard to just choose one. This sandal is daring and perfect for summer. A lot of summer outfits consist of denim shirts and a plain t-shirt, so these sandals are a great way to spice up your outfit. Blue sandals are really in this summer, as well as detailing such as braiding (you'll see more of this motif throughout the list).

-These vintage sandals are retro stud meets lace ankle socks. The heel and buckle detailing are ironic next to the pyramid bead detailing, giving these sandals a very unique and original feel. As mentioned before, quirky details are really in this summer and become an accessory on their own!

Matiko Footwear Ivana Sandals

-I know I am supposed to be unbiased, but these might just be my favorite on the list. The design is so simple and obviously comfortable, yet it's very boho chic and the color pop is great for summer. Additionally, Matiko has an amazing reputation for designing sandals with a strong, supportive foundation.


-If there was a vision of the gladiator sandal of the future, these would totally be them. I love this sandal because it brings together classic and fashion forward elements. The color pallet is overall neutral and will go with pretty much anything. The metallic detailing and the overall silhouette of the shoe is very unique, yet simple. The weaving is very organized and has clean lines. Overall, an amazing choice for this summer.


-These are a very simple sandal that are for those of you who are not comfortable with an actual gladiator style. This shoe is one of the most well made shoes I have ever seen with a padded bottom, leather lining, leather outside, and adjusted back strap. These shoes are ones that will last you a lifetime if you take care of them properly.

$92 (on sale!)

-Slingbacks are such a convenient way to go and give the foot a nice open look. The suede fabric is something different in a great one-of-a-kind way. Also, the ruched upper strap and poppy red color serve as nice details for this shoe. This is also the easiest to put on, as the slingback is made of elastic.


-Steve Madden always has a ton of great flat sandals, and I picked this particular pair for its bohemian-inspired beading. Turquoise, burnt orange, gold, and yellow are all colors that are in this summer. This shoe is a great way to incorporate all of those and is great foot candy for the beach, club, cantina, etc.
