Happy Saturday to all my trendy Fashionistas!

This past Monday, I spent my day at 900 North Michigan Ave spotting trendy shoes like these 1950’s inspired stilettos, that I’m sure will be hitting your local department stores this spring.

I got these photos from fashion designers Christian Louboutin, FENDI, Gianvito Rossi, Manolo Blahnik, and Walter Steiger.

These stilettos represent a classy, sleek, sophisticated women who is very confident about her style. Day in, and day out. I love every pair that is above, especially the styles from Manolo Blahnik, who looked like his team of designers had a lot of fun designing the shoes.

To many people, I almost sure that pulling these shoes off will be a challenge, but with the right outfit and handbag, I’m pretty sure you can find ways to modernize these shoes and become what? Trendy. If not, Google 1950’s attire and explore looks that fits your style.

Xo, - B

P.S I can’t wait to find some of these shoes, affordable ones of course.

Hello Dopians and Happy Spring!

I am so excited to be back blogging. These past few months has been a blast, as I have been busy with school at Columbia College Chicago studying fashion design. Currently, I am styling and designing clothes for people and that’s what actually motivated me to blog today.

I have been coming across many trends, colors, and different textiles that will be poppin this spring on flats! Above is some HAUTE flats that are making all the noise, and of course you can find some that meet your budget. Enjoy these looks and try to find you some HAUTE flats that are affordable for you and stylish for you.

Don’t be into trends. Don’t make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way you live.

Thirsty for FASHION Thursday,

Today is the day,

You can officially shop at H&M for Maison Martin Margiela collection. At 8:00 a.m. lines were wrapped around the corners for the lunch of this reasonable collection. After school, I’ll be at the State Street store location picking up an item just because. I encourage you to do the same.

Blazin Blazers,

Blazers are awesome, N you should know that. They are the piece of clothing that would put any look together when it is N desperate need. To dress up a blazer you can utilize pendants, scarfs, N belts of all shapes N sizes. During our daily fashion research, we’ve been spotting different types of blazers with a masculine twist to them, a tuxedo.

Tuxedo blazers are trendy and for some reason we don’t know if Janelle Monae have inspired designers or what. N stores though, they are doing an excellent job by adding the masculine look to the garment to be fitted for females. As you should know, it is best to have seasonal blazers all year around N of course, a black classic one. Below you can find blazers ranging from different prices N designers. Enjoy, N remember to always buy a blazer occasionally while out shopping.

Louis Vuitton: Spring Summer 2013 Fashion Show

Louis Vuitton

#Doooppppeee

What caught my eyes this week on Women’s Wear’s Daily, a fashion incubator website is Louis Vuitton Women’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection designed by Marc Jacobs. Jacobs dominates solid colors N put their design logo to use in his collection, which I believe is highly needed for those two seasons. Below you can find photos of some of our favorite pieces N also the runway show above.
