yay! new betsey johnson

Today was a pretty good day, aside from the fact I've missed 4 days of school and getting caught up is seeming quite impossible, especially with all of these fun distractions, like blogger:) I'm getting really stressed out over my upcoming AP exam for AP European History, seeing as it's a little ridiculous to try and remember every little detail...when in life will I ever apply my knowledge of Frederick the Great? Anyways, I love my new betsey johnson ring! It's so cute I had to post it... :)

favorite outfit of PFW

Out of all the outfits in Paris Fashion Week for Fall 2011, the most popular trends were leathers, sheers, blues' and fur! However my favorite outfit contained none of those four elements. Russian designer, Valentin Yudashkin, formed his autumn collection around the perfect contrast between masculinity to femininity with elements of frill necks and lace layers in his showing.

Dark colors, tweeds, blazers, and overall man-spiration dominated the runways this year.

the skinny: 
- SKINNY JEANS ARE DEAD. Skinny jeans dominated the American fashion scene to the extent that everything else(i.e. shirts, coats, tunics, ect.) were tailored around them. The NEW "pant to wear" is the trouser. Chinos, wide-leg, pajama pant, anything slouchy that retains a figure-hugging fit is for fall. Tweeds, plaids, and leathers are most commonly thrown around on the runaways. What else? 
- PUNK TREND: In men and women's wear, the punk trend has risen with leather pants, motorcycle boots, leather bombers, aviator jackets, and layering scarves, plaid button-downs, vests and wool sweaters together. Most prevalently seen in Blamain's men Autumn/Fall 2011 collection.
