STYLiN''s recap of the fall '11 shows makes me giddy. I love sneaking a peek at what's to come & brainstorming what pieces I already have to recreate my favorite looks.

my two absolute FAVORITE looks - Carolina Herrera & Alice + Olivia

love this Alice + Olivia look too.

this bright Milly ensemble is right up my alley as well!

My aching feet have been begging for relief from the constant rotation of stilettos & flats. These sneakers have me almost giving in to their demands...


One of my favorite combos is a yellow top with jeans & red flats.
This top just got marked down at Anthropologie- isn't it great? What are your favorite color combos?

& judging by the fam's reaction to this recipe, they are too!

ToRY BuRCH PRe-FaLL 2011

Loved Habitually Chic's pics of Tory Burch's Pre-Fall 2011 presentation. This look immediately caught my eye-

Paisley + stripes, who would've thought? I love wearing prints together (Tory is the master!), so here's my take:
I am not a paisley girl. There, I said it. The pattern drives me nuts. So I went with floral instead & paired it with a wide stripe cardigan.

the trick is to match the colors, & have one low-key print with a bolder print. I think two different prints work well (not floral & floral- that's tricky!).
& because it's me, I have to belt it- something skinny & gold will do the trick!

PeP(LuM) iN My STeP

I heart PePLuM. The little ruffles around the waist are just too stylin'.
This look reignited my interest in this flirty, retro style.

Here's something a little less dramatic to help you get your feet wet- love the waist detail on this skirt!
Love this Shabby Apple version- a little drama never hurt! Would be super cute with some high heeled mary janes.

Here's a few tips:

  • Try a thin belt around your natural waist if so many ruffles at your hips make you nervous. :)

  • Stay with solids for this trend- it'll be plenty busy without a pattern!

  • Keep jewelry & other accessories simple & classic-- the ruffles are all you need!

  • Make sure the fit is perfect- this should be an always thing, but it's especially important when you've got some extra layers of fabric ruffling around you!

To THe MaX(i)

Never thought I'd be loving long skirts again, but that's what fashion does to ya. What goes around comes around & I am loving this combo:
pair this anthropologie skirt with these piperlime shoes- the wedge will make your look even leggier & add some sturdiness to the look (i heart the mustard yellow against the plum!). add a simple t & maybe a woven leather belt.
