I don’t know where I would wear this…

I don’t know where I would wear this, but I think it looks cool. Even though I have the sniffles, I sort of felt rocker chic today.

Runway Must Have: Emilio Pucci Spring RTW 2011

I love a gorgeous dress, and I LIVE for cute boots. These dresses by Emilio Pucci deserves a suicide dip. Not just any dip, but a Mother Leiomy dips off the table suicide dip.

Follow Fashion trends with caution.

I was having a conversation with a friend of mine the other day, and she mentioned that she had a couple of pairs of brightly colored skinny jeans that she did not plan on wearing anymore.  I told her that I understood where she was coming from because if I were to see her in brightly colored skinny jeans this fall, then she would get the complete side eye from me (80% joking, 20% serious). She asked where she could wear these pants again and I told her at a 90’s party, maybe.  *Kanye shrugs *

This conversation is the foundation for today’s post. When it comes to trends I am extremely cautious about what I purchase from the store. I must admit the colorful skinny jean trend was cute, and I have seen some girls, and guys, pull this look off wonderfully. However, I knew that I was not in love with colorful skinny jeans, and if I were to purchase a pair I would only wear the jeans for this summer. Knowing this about myself, I decided to not partake in the colorful skinny jean trend.

When it comes to being a savvy consumer, you have to take the time to evaluate your personal taste.  Before you purchase the next latest trend take the time to think about whether or not you are going to wear this item next year or not. If you will, then buy it. If you will not, then bypass, or purchase that item for really, really, cheap.  I already know that I am going to be buying up high waisted jeans and shorts because I love that trend.  It is so 70’s chic and anything that can prevent muffin top is an ok with me, in addtion, I know that high waisted pants will be hard to come by once this trend fades.

Just because something is the latest trend that does not mean that you have to fill up your entire closet with that trend. Buy a few items and save your money on items that you are in love with because lets be honest, unless you are in the fashion industry, no one really cares about whether or not you are following the latest trends. Heck, majority of society are not even aware of what the latest trends are, so be you.

Safari Chic

Safari Chic is another trend for 2010. Safari Chic includes the following:

  • Animal Print

Leopard print is the animal print of choice for designers. The leopard print king Roberto Cavalli is not too fond of other designers copying his style.

  • Cargo Style pants/shorts

Yes ladies you can go back in your closets and dig up those old cargo pants because they are back in style.

  • Trench

A love trench coats and I am so happy that they are part of the Safari trend. I bought a trench coat style jacket earlier this year and I am so glad that I did.

  • Colors

Camel, olive, and various shades of brown

  • Accessories

Safari inspired bracelets, purses,  leopard prints shoes, and a fedora.

How do you plan on being Safari chic for 2010?

Designer Spotlight: Roberto Cavalli

Italian designer Roberto Cavalli was born November 15, 1940, in Florence Italy; son of Giorgio and Marcella Cavalli. He was born during the era of Mussolini’s Italy and at the age of three the Nazi assassinated his father, a mine surveyor.  His grandfather Giuseppe Rossi was a member of the Macchiaioli group of painters in Italy. His grandfathers influence would lead Cavalli to enroll in The Florence Academy School of Art, in 1957.  During his time at this academy, Cavalli had discovered his passion for art and fashion.  During the 60’s Cavalli came up with an ideal that would change the way the fashion industry viewed leather.  “I had this idea to print on leather. I used glove skim from a French tannery, and when I started to print, I saw it was possible to make evening gowns in leather in pink-unbelievable.” –Roberto Cavalli in an interview with Evening Standard’s, via notablebiographies.com.  This innovative technique for printing leather would be the launching point for Cavalli’s career.  In  1970, Cavalli debuted his first collection in Paris. His collection was well received by top designers and celebrities at that time.  Cavalli is known for his sexy dresses with plunging necklines and animal print. His dresses have been draped over the lovely bodies of Beyonce, Halle Berry, Paris Hilton, and Victoria Beckham. Roberto Cavalli’s companies include the following:

Roberto Cavalli- His premier couture line

Just Cavalli- An affordable brand, for some, that is sold in upscale department stores

Roberto Cavalli Class

Roberto Cavalli Angels- His kids line.

Cavalli has managed to stand the test of time and even in the company’s 40th anniversary, Cavalli, at the age of 69, has managed to maintain his status as the designer for the celebrities.
