Secrets

tiffany’s has the key to my heart & all my secrets 

Secrets secrets are no fun they can only hurt someone……  my mom has told me this since i was little girl and it still holds

true today.  Its alot harder to live a pure honest life then lie.  Lying is the cowards way out. Its  easier to be  dis-loyal but your secrets will always come out! SO becareful ;)

I thought i would showcase pattern on pattern. You wouldn’t believe the people i hear saying,  that you can’t wear two different pattern pieces together.. i say if its done well.. its fashion brilliance! 

here is my take on squaring up on pattern!

pattern LV marc jacobs etc

Spring romance 2011

I believe its just that time to check out fashion provocateurs spring trends 2011!!! im just thrilled with my list this year of top trends you must be picking up!!

1 ) floral  / 70 trends floral trends are big this year.!  seeing collections from D&G LV among others!!  dresses, tops,  off the shoulder , shoes, anything to show these patterns.

2) crop tops! These were  getting big last  summer at the end of the season, but they are back like never before! pulling off this look can be achieved, even if you don’t have the perfect ab body.  laying a cami underneath can still show the effect. i recommended also wearing  ‘ the wide leg pant’ to balance out the top and bottom :) Paul and Joe have great designs

3) prada – shoes this is  trend in its self. the shoes are just to  die – for!! i can not wait to try some D.I.Y projects with these shoes. the colours play up prada’s  direction this spring, and the patterns i think are key to these looks this spring 2011

4) colours – orange , jet blue,  red, yellows

im obsessed with these bright colours! orange seems to be everywhere this spring and i cant be more happy. yes colour is alot. but doing small things, like nails, bags, shoes, can help ease your way in!  You will not be sorry

Dior

LV

5) romantic ( lace ) I think you can do both, play with the bright fun colours but also add a little romance to your wardrobe with soft colours  such as champagne which is a huge colour for spring.

.

6) sharp lines , dresses longer in the back then the front

Calvin Klein just blew me away with its runway this year, i cannot  believe how much i loved his collection, to me it brought me back to the old minimalist style that is so legendary with this designer .  ALso of course the movement this spring that everyone is inspired by is YSL

7) trench coats . crop short – saw this in the vogue i was reading a few days looking for ideas and i fell in love!!! these trenches are so smart and cute, i just need to pick up this style!!

blurberry and Christian Dior

8) wide leg  pants – i happen to be a big fan of this trend. i love skinnys   and they will still be around for a while..  its nice to see a new trend with the flare and wide leg pant make an appearance – don’t overlook it as an elegant, stylish addition to your 2011 repertoire, particularly when styled right.

9)  tassels

tassels are great for accs on bags! they add that western theme we saw so much last year.

Here is picture of  the classic chanel bag! the tassels are just perfect on it! i recently picked up an inspired bag like this  in a perfect bright jet blue! tres chic

10)  sheer clothing

Back to sheer clothing,  I kinda like this trend when done well. I would recommend to start slow, like maybe a sheer crop ( layered of course with a cami underneath ) or maybe a sheer cardi. something that gives off that sexy , chic look.

thank you soo much! ALSO if you would like to take the time to follow on me on BLOGLOVIN’ that would be great. i would love to start using that :D thank you

Fall must haves!

Working in a boutique has some advantages like getting a sneak peek at the newest clothes coming in and helping to bring new trends in to the store. ( as well as the discount and the wicked clothes you get to lust over )

Here are FASHION PROVOCATEUR’S  top ” must haves” for fall 2010!

ps. i wanted to add  couture images as well as everyday wear so people can use this to help with wardrobe and get ideas with everyday pieces of clothing

1)  Fleece leggings

yes leggings are a touching subject because they are making their way out of our closets but i couldnt resist these leggings.  The lining of the legging is made with fleece so you get the warmth plus the softness when you rock them under you over sized tops and ankle/knee boots!

2 ) Moccasins

I have fallen in love with these moccasins from soft moc they are just amazing and fabolous and will go with pretty much anything in your closet , they are so easy and ready for the fall  love love love! PS  the added fringe is just perfect

3) Fur

Anything fur is huge on the runways! the majority of pieces on Chanels and DG run way was fur. You dont have to go to the extreme of being head to toe in fur but by adding it in small places can help make you a trendy fashionista ! I would go for a cute scarf bag or  boot for your fur trim

4) Kitten Heel

You see this style alot on the Fall 2010 runways including Stella McCartney, Marc Jacobs, Prada and Giambattista Valli it looks great with the 50’s feel that you are seeing on all the runways!

Bettye Muller

LV

5)  Velvet

Mmmm i m a huge fan of this one ! i absolutely adore the fabric, but never have a chance to pull it off, because it is another big trend this season, and a must have!

I have seen a cute velvet blazer @ garage clothing tres chic! i cannot wait to pick it up

alexander wang

6 ) sheer clothing

this one is  a bit different and maybe even harder to pull off, but the results are definitely worth it.  Using the sheer on the top half of tops, or cut outs covered by sheer is a great way to add a bit of excitement to you wardrobe! You see a few designers pull this look off! Also if you are a bit more conservative like me i opt to try the sheer cardi! its great for pulling over camis and other cute tanks ( or lingerie inspired clothing )

7) knee highs

I know everyone has been seeing this trend for months, but i had to add it , since ifound this wicked blogsite that has amazing ideas for knee highs ( http://lookbook.nu/mayowo)  that  pairs knee highs with every day wear! Every girl should own a good pair of knee highs, especially  since they are a big trend this fall.  I like to pair them over knee high boots or springs big trend with sandals

.

8) Draping

Draping is huge again for fall 2010. Many designers including Victoria Beckham Narciso Rodriguez to Halston to Alexander Wang and of course Rodarte. This  style can be found on anyone because it can hide lines and  help give small girls a figure! Christopher Bailey stole the heart of ladies with Burberry Prorsum 2010 collection which i do adore . It celebrates the femininity of fine lines, charming fabrics as well as a candy-coated color palette.The subtle  look is further enriched by the effect of draping.

.

9) Over sized tops/ tunis !

Oversized tops have always been a favourite of mine.  I love how a simple top can be transformed with the right acc’s and gives you a bit of edge and sexiness  with showing a little skin ( your shoulder!) these tops are great with leggings and knee riding boots or a skin leg jean. * Remember  its important to keep a good balance. if you paired this top with a wide baggy pant, you will look bulky and your great figure will be completely  hidden!

i love this peacock themed shirt which i have been seeing more and more all over the racks!

10) vintage!

Yes im so thrilled, if you noticed my last post ( https://fashionprovocateur.wordpress.com/2010/09/15/louis-vuittion-can-do-no-wrong/the , louis vuittion ) 50s/60’s look is in with full swing! Of course its easy to talk about how flattered and feminine these looks are! The hourglass figure mixed with the knee length pencil line skirt  tweed rich fabrics, heartshaped  neck lines, gloves and that classic Lucille Ball look

try this look by buying a heart shaped neckline dress/ top , a crinoline skirt or pencil line skirt!

this dress has a great 60s feel to it with the neckline and rigged shape

this dress has the sweetheart neckline and the drapping effect ! two in one :)

Hope this helps out, kisses fashion land

summertime!

Im officially super excited ! its summertime! Yesterday was the first day of summer and the longest day of the year!  Im equal as excited that i get to wear shorts and flip flops! My boutique was so busy yesterday , as i was designing window displays , merchandising sweing!  and    flipping through magazines figuring out the best fall  trends to add to this shop! I get a alot of compliments on the jewelry i wear which is a big item this season . My Tiffany’s ring  is always a show stopper , along with these two bracelets my boyfriends Mother made for me. I m hoping to start selling them in my boutique! Becasue jewerlly is best feature this summer! lots of rings, bracelets and chunky necklaces!  I love to help others around me. and it always suprises me that people cant pick out an outfit to  save their life! Being a stylist is proabably the best thing about my job, i love making people feel good and making them look fabolous!

SO my biggest Summer trends that you can still pick up! ONLY  3 weeks left of summer shopping till fall items arrive!

Look out for great sales in your local boutiques!

1) Maxi dresses

these are always a great staple in your wardrobe. they made a great appearance last yeaar and are still doing very well this summer. great with some bangles and funky jewelry

2) Rompers!!

 wow my new favourite item im dying to pick up!  I love rompers so much they are amazing little thing between a jumper and short shorts? haha You can wear this piece all summer long with a great pair of sandals

.

i love all these designers!

3) Crop tops!

another big hit! crop tops are the new hottest thing! and dont worry about  having a ” flat tummy” anyone can pull this off..  The secret is the way the crop top is cut.! Cutting your top on an angle having it come up a little  but still low around the sides. OR a full on crop top! these items are probably the number 1 item to buy!

4) Summer dresses

there is much to say about this. but as you can tell my love for summer dresses! i actually picked up a cute summer dress a month ago and havent yet  put it on my blog! promise i will! I love vintage style dresses, and if you can get your hand on these dresses i really think you should! just amazing

5) hot pants / boy shorts.

 These are a daring move, and i would love to try them out! anything high waisted is really in right now. so its great to to take advantage of these key pieces.

.

Now goo run out and fill your closet with the hottest must haves of the season!!

HOPEFULLY BEACHES AND SUN all weekend long :)

Mens Summer trends 2010

I  love fashion, for anyone, i try my best to help  my boyfriend and friends to look their best! I m surprised to find  either guys care what they look like and wanna try to look good, or they dont even bother.  My bf was saying  the hardest  thing to do  is look good and try to impress with out looking a  like “tool” .  Guys seem to be lost when trying to put outfits together and knowing what looks good with that.  This is where my passion for fashion comes in, i love styling, costumes, designing & creating new outfits!

 SO as i get a lot of requests im going to do a summer guide for  all the guys out there where to buy and find great classic pieces at affordable prices!

1. Shirts

a) Calvin Klein poplin button-down  – cotton poplin, there’s no need for an unsightly undershirt.  This button-down keeps you clean, crisp and  sweat free as the warmer weather returns : D

* TIP  guys try taking your button down shirts and rolling the sleeves up, for a causal look that you can pair with jeans and loafers!  i great way to look great and save money by taking existing clothing and chaning them up!

b) H&M –  always a great staple for guys,  they have great shirts from $10 that you can layer underneath clothes , or wear causally

c) 1963 denim work shirt – Denim is hot this season  even for guys!   Ralph lauren has a hot denim like coloured pony that would look great with jeans or khaki pants

H&M

 

rolled up sleeves!

 

2 ) shorts!

a) more relaxed shorts with a skinny belt is your best bet this season! its all about looking cool and causal  and still handsome!

Love these shorts with guy with a  looser polo and sandles

 

b) plaid shorts !

these shorts look nice anywhere you go , from the driving range, to the bar and out on a summer day!  great with shirts and rolled up sleeves!

H&M have great shorts for a cheap price!

c) khaki shorts  is a great way to go if you want to dress up, but still  look like you can sit down and be causal! pairing up the shorts with a  soft coloured polo is a great summer trend!  here is the look pulled together

3) Shoes!

a) Slip-ons or sandles : casual slip-ons will be favored by all .. this spring and summer, to and stick with the cream and and browns.  They can also be worn with jeans, shorts or causal pants

b) Moccasins leather loafers The classic and simpleclassic colors like black, brown, white and brown. They go well with “not so formal” clothes.

c) Running shoes : and of course running shoes, high tops, sports,  limited edition, these can still be worn with  tighter fighting  jeans and shorts. keep them clean and like new to impress the ladies!

aldo

 

love pumas – white classic with jeans

 

I will KEEP updating my men trends to keep everyone updated! next look out for : The right jean fit for ever guy !
