Spotlight on Steven Alan!!!!!

Ok, so I may be a little late on the scene, but I am just finding out about a fabulous clothing and accessory outlet by the name of Steven Alan!!! I stumbled upon the boutique while on vacay in L.A. I spotted a very cute pair of Matt Bernson gladiator sandals and I just had to have them and to my surprise they were what...On Sale!!!!!!!!! Once I did some surfing of the site, I was hooked. The look is very eclectic, trendy, of the moment, fashion forward. Not your everyday dress and pants here. If you want to stand out from the rest, Steven Alan is the place for you. Boutiques are located in L.A. and NYC. I highly recommend!

Stars In Stripes!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stripes are all around for fall 09 fashion! Check out these celebs in stripes! Breton stripes are the inspiration for this fall trend! The Breton Stripe was quite popular in the 60's out of the UK. The retro look has been revamped and is looking so fresh and so clean and ready to wear! Mix and match your stripes with tops, bottoms, and dresses! Add a chunky, stand out accessory and keep everything else simple and you will be ready to represent! Not sure you can do stripes? Try a wider stripe and keep the color pattern to a minimal. Think nautical, blue and white or black and white for a start. Then slowly, be adventurous and try the look in colors!!! Here are some inspirations for ya( on the picture and go directly to the source)!!!! Anthro has a lot of stripes in store, just search "stripes" and you'll be in business!!!!

Blazing Saddles!!!!!!!

"He conquered fear, and he conquered hate, He turned dark night into day, He made his blazing saddle..."Well, you get the jist! Want to blaze your saddle this fall? Try throwing on a men's wear inspired, alternative to a jacket...The Blazer!!!!!!!!! The Blazer continues to be a hot commodity for your fall '09 wardrobe. Truly a staple, the Blazer can be paired with a fabulous frock, boyfriend/husband jeans, or try one paired with a long cardigan, leggings, and knee high boots(blog soon to come) for a chic, comfy, girl about town, look! Be on the look out for traditional, black blazers with pinstripe lining (my fav, goes with just about any look) or non-traditional looks like metallics, terry, and even denim(Steven Alan has a great one). And lets not forget, the leather blazer!! Or, opt for a new spin on this trend...The Cropped Blazer!!! So, saddle up ladies and get your Blazer on!!!!
