Spring 2010 Trend: Turquoise

Right now, I’m in total “research spring trends” mode. I’ve had enough of winter–can you tell?! In addition to nude/tan shoes and sailor/nautical motifs, turquoise is going to be big for Spring 2010.

Turquoise is a gorgeous color that makes a major impact. Below are a few turquoise things that caught my eye.

Jessica Simpson ‘Fancy Love’ Fragrance: New Must-Have Perfume

Jessica Simpson 'Fancy Love' Fragrance ($49-$59)

Jessica Simpson 'Fancy Love' Fragrance ($49-$59)

If you’ve been following us for a while, you know that I’ve never done a perfume review before. I absolutely love perfume and don’t leave home without it under any circumstances. I shy away from covering fragrances because when it comes to eloquently describing a scent like so many beauty writers brilliantly do, I’m at a loss for words–no pun intended.

Jessica Simpson’s ‘Fancy Love’ smells so good that I had to tell you about it. Well, I’ll take a stab at trying to describe it: it’s musky with some subtle floral notes. There, that’s the most literary creativity you’ll get from me. But seriously, though, Fancy Love is irresistible. There a lot of perfumes that I love but have to be in the mood for. Fancy Love, on the other hand, I know I’ll wear whenever and whatever the weather.

As always, I really appreciate how reasonably priced Jessica Simpson’s products are. And how pretty is that bottle?!

Fall Boots Have Arrived!!!

'Blondee' Boots ($99.95, Steve Madden)

'Blondee' Boots ($99.95, Steve Madden)

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I always get a bit sad as summer comes to an end (ok, I sound a tad melodramatic–it’s only August 11th). But one of the best things about being close to the beginning of a new season is shopping for new stuff, of course!

Anyone for whom shoe shopping is a science or simply an addiction knows that the end of the summer is the best time to get boots for fall. With the new shipments of fall products starting to hit the stores now, this is the time to snag boots in your size and preferred color. Come September, the only things left are usually in Shaquille O’Neal’s size or bright yellow with polka dots.

So, I said to myself today, “Self, let’s give our readers a peek at what we have to look forward to this fall.” Have a look at what caught my eye so far and keep an eye out for more updates in the weeks to come. The cold is coming but not all hope is lost!

Loving Lanvin for Fall 2009

Lanvin 2009 ready-to-wear collection

Lanvin 2009 ready-to-wear collection

With fall almost here, designers are back to experimenting with all kinds of rich fabrics, textures and dark colors. Mmmm.

And what better way to kick off the season than with a silk dress? Lanvin included a belted one in its Fall ready-to-wear collection. Love the capsleeves, which add a subtle, sexy touch to an appropriate-for-daytime dress.

The Antonio Melani dress below features ruched detailing at the neckline. This is perfect for fall, whose runways are currently being dominated by draped, ruched and layered fabric. The deep shade of gray just screams glam and leaves plenty of room for accessorizing with jewels and gold. For shoes, platform pumps are still the it thing, with so many great colors to choose from for next season.

I’m dreading the fall cold and lack of sun, but all the fab clothes and accessories coming our way do make up for it!

The Look: Givenchy Resort 2010

Givenchy Resort 2010 Collection

Givenchy Resort 2010 Collection

There really is nothing better than a simple pair of black pants and a crisp white shirt. Givenchy included an interpretation of this timeless combination in the 2010 Resort collection.

Needless to say, you should always have a white shirt and black pants in your closet. You can wear them year-round, layering with with heavier pieces when its cold and with a ton of colorful accessories when its warm.

Givenchy pairs these classic pieces with black leather ankle strap sandals. With new additions such as the Studded Gladiator Flats, Charlotte Russe has been on fire lately with all kinds of super sexy shoes at really great prices–perfect way to top off your Givenchy-esque look. The studs on the shoes nicely balance out the ultra-feminine ruffles on the shirt.

Wear it to work, wear it on a date–if the word “versatile” could be described with an image, this would be it.
