I love turquoise and stripes! I never knew myself to be so predictable! At least these are two things that I KNOW without a shadow of a doubt that I will always love. Now, if I could only figure out how to budget a checkbook!
Fall Is Just Arriving While Fashion Is “Spring”-ing Forward:The Trend Report
September finishes up one of the busiest weeks for fashion as the designers preview their Spring 2012 collections in Paris, Milan, New York, and London. While the rest of us are just now putting away our linen and labor day whites, and dragging out our favorite boots and sweaters, it seems crazy to even be talking about spring- but fashionistas know the drill. And I will let you know who was front and center and the major shows picking their fav runway looks for Spring.
Young blood- front and center- really young!
HCC: Hyper Chic Color
Color on Crack is no exaggeration to describe designers’ take on color for Spring 2012. Oscar De La Renta, Thakoon, Marc Jacob, Haider Ackermann, even Donna Karen can’t help but embrace electrifying blues and citrus yellows and limes. So, those of you stuck in black and white- time to break out the shades and let your inner Elton John rule your house of color!
Put on your Big Girl Pants
It is time for women of the world to take after style icon Coco Chanel and wear the pants and the high heels. Almost every designer showed high waisted cigarette pants with peplum tops or blazers in vibrant textured hues. Tailored but still very feminine.
In the Flesh
That’s right ladies, as vibrant as the colors are, we also can expect soft flesh and nude tones as well. chiffon blouses, long gowns, billowing silks all in varying sexy nudes. I predict the summer to be stifling!
If you haven’t heard about the latest food craze, it’s time to google!! Check out The LA Food Trucks online and find almost any gourmet food truck trucking around Los Angeles! Early, late, whenever- there’s nothing more fun and tasty than hunting one of these meals on wheels!! I tried to “Kogi” truck the other night and I will have to say, it was UNBELIEVABLE!
Check out the pork burrito and you will fall in love at first bite! It’s cheap, good, and very clean as they are randomly checked by the health department and inspected regularly. I am still looking for the Sprinkles truck, so wish me luck on tracking it down. Just go to LA Food Trucks , and start chasing them down! How far are you willing to travel? Well, let your appetite help determine your decision.
Eat and be Merry!!!
Abby Fender- Your Bargain Buddy and Personal Shopping Material Girl
So, I hope you enjoyed the show, and here are a few pictures of the things I saw and eventually created out of my $90.00 of fabulous flowers and $100.00 for supplies, tools, and a big vase. Not too bad.
Josef Mieli from “Dalsol Orchid Warehouse” is a great resource and I cannot tell you how affordable his orchids are compared to any flower retailer in the city. Not only are they stunning, but they are healthy and come in a wide variety of colors and breeds. Also, check out the moss I mentioned- “Deer Moss.” It is really cool stuff! More to come…
