Fashion sketches

When i was young all i dreamed about was being a stylist or fashion designer to see my  sketches on the runway in new york fashion week!  I decided to dig around and find some of my old work and post it! I love drawing so i will start to sketch more and post them as i go!! It’s funny to see how much fashion changes in 6-10 years!!

Alice in Wonderland.. wow

I cannot even begin to describe how much of an effect this movie has had with the fashion industry! The newest trend is all inspired by Alice in Wonderland!! Many designers have gotten on board and has help create a fairytale come to life.  Colleen Atwood was responsible for creating these amazing costumes, her other works include; Chicago ,  Edward Scissorhands ,  Sleepy Hallow , Memories of Geisha and the list goes on and on! Vogue has creatively come up with wild photo shoot with top designers  here are some shots from the shoot, as well inspirational ideas to wear in your own wardrobe.

Date Night – Outfit

I thought i would take a few moments before my boyfriend comes to blog about an date outfit. We are going to the movies so i thought a simple high  skirt, knee high socks (from the UK)  and cute top thats not too reveling. SO i snapped a few photos .. OPPS hes heere :)  lallalala  xo floating –

 

 

 

Top: teal – Jacob
Skirt :  knit – forever 21

Socks : From London England (UK) present

* please dont mind the bathroom pictures *

 

Top : Colour  Teal; Jacob, Skirt : forever 21  purse : vintage chanel

 

I opted to not wear a belt with this skirt, and tuck the top in to add a feminine touch.

Out with the old and in with the new..

Okay, i love when girls keep on up with the latest trends and fashions on the other hand i hate when they  keep wearing them long after date.  So i decided to do a blog page on recent trends that are OUT and new trends that are IN!

Here you go  fashionistas   In for Spring / Summer 2010

 

Denim IS A MUST!    – jeans are HUGE this year! you will see  denim paired up with every farbic, every style everything.

ripped jeans, denim jackets, skirts, flares you will see it all this year

Boyfriend blazer – still a hot fashion item this year, boyfriend blazers can dress you up or down, its great paired with a skinny jean and heels ( to add that sexy feminine element)

Clogs –  These shoes are stylist and cute, im not the biggest fan of this look, but if styled correctly then i think it look super chic! I m thinking to pair it with skirt and denim shirt. Would be a great look for spring.summer 2010!

 chanel

Over exaggeration  – Spring.Summer seems to be leaning towards, bagging pants, with a tight fitted bottom, tops seem to be more loose paired with a tighter skirt or bottom.  Its all about mixing and matching tighter items with loose masculine feel.

 

 

FASHION TRENDS TO AVOID! 

 Leggings – PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE. dont wear leggings under everything! its soo tacky, i see way to many girls dressing like this! especially paired with knee high boots or under dresses  shorts or skirts! ew.  This look can make your legs look huge, and under cut your whole outfit.  Choose  a sheer or pattern tight(stocking)  if its a must. Leggings are slowly disappearing from our closets and its for better.  * if you must wear them please pair it with boyish style shorts ( that are loose) and ankle boots! *

Scarfs – They have been around for so many seasons! dont get me wrong a lovely hermes scarf to add  with a finished tailor outfit would be more then fine. THE OVER-USE of scarfs is whats out! please try to keep your scarf wearing to a minimum this season!

Over laying  –  Keep the Spring light and simple, pairing blouses and trousers  that are  easy to the eye and the style.  pairing to much together, keeping things boxy and clunky is a faux pa.  Spring you will see a lot of soft colours and a bit of edgy looks!

 * ALL BIG NO’ NO’S!

I hope this will help all you guys to bring out your inner   fashionista ! xoxoxox

Fashion in its purest form –

Since starting this blog exactly a week and 2 days ago i have already have close to 300 views on my page! i m very honored people take the time to compliment my style and fashion ideas.  I get even more excited when other fashion artists want to show  their work on my blog,  and to me i believe that is the purest form of fashion. Everyone has their own idea of what they like.. i would like to say that they are right.. but unfortunately they are so, so wrong, HENCE why there are fashion blogs, designers, magazines to help guide you in the right direction, not everyone has style ( even tho they think they do) But the photographs and simple fashion styling  that i absolutely ADORE is from Gabriëlle Koster. Her photographs are pure and tasteful something i always look for.  Thank you soo much for admiring my work as well! Here are just a few of her photographs more found on her blog –
