Not Your Typical Tweed

I tend to shy away from many menswear-inspired trends because I am such a girly-girl ( I know, I hate me too).  But one piece of fabric that has been taken from our lovely male friends’ closets that can totally be worn by us gals is tweed!  I love this trend because tweed is such a polished, chic look and yet it adds a little masculinity and structured to an otherwise average feminine outfit.  Not to mention you totally Chanel-ify your outfit with a little tweed (hello, signature Chanel tweed jacket).  Not to mention, the textured material will keep you warm during the cold months to come!  Below are some greatly styled outfits featuring tweed. Enjoy!

Here are some outfit ideas by me!

Fashion’s Night Out 2012

Although I have to admit last night was a bit hectic and too unplanned so I didn’t get to see as much as I wanted, but being in the atmosphere of Fashion’s Night Out was enough for me! Plus, there is really only one photo that captures FNO, and just fashion in general merging with art, culture and New York City.  Below is a photo I took last night outside of Barney’s,  of a gorgeous and completely genius display of Louboutin’s – surrounded by identical colored fish!  Amazing, artistic, creative, innovative!  So many words to describe it and I loved seeing this in person! Enjoy that and the rest of my (very few) photos!

Fall’s It Bag: Black & Structured

While many of any upcoming season’s trends and fashions may not be too conventional, this fall’s bags are all that and more.  We may see lots of prints and busy outfits however going overboard is not what this season’s bags are about.  Black, structured and perfectly acceptable for work and school, all you’ll need to figure out is what to fill it with. (I’m sure us ladies won’t have a problem with that!) Below are my suggestions. Enjoy!
