Update from fashion Week NY

As I just mentioned before, the 80's are playing a big role as an inspiration for the Spring 10 collections of many (most!) designers. Things to keep in mind and look for:
-Graphic florals, not the little house on the prairie!!! but very modern, surrealist ones.
-80's silhouettes, rag and Bone has the baggiest, loosest pieces of clothes, BCBG has asymmetrical sheath dresses , etc.
BCBG , TAHARI I & II , Rag & Bone
-Muted colors, even though it is a spring collection, I am seeing vibrant colors being replaced by relaxing earthy tones, muted greens, lots of creams and beiges. These are great colors for most of us, TEENSIZERS!
We will continue taking a look at the collections, don't forget to keep track by signing up for e-mails or tweets.


Welcome to NY Fashion Week!

Yes, today is the start of New York Fashion Week.

Designers will be presenting their proposals for Spring 2010, so we will have some time to digest and decide what's actually going to work for us.

I will keep you posted, so stay in touch and/or sign up for email updates and RSS.

I will also include some gossip, just for the fun of it. To begin with, do you know that a designer has to pay over $100,000 for a spot in one of the tents (did you even know there were tents?), and that is not counting all of the HUGE production costs including models, decor, etc.

This is not only for talented designers, but for talented and RICH designers.
More is coming...


Go 80's without going overboard

Hi to all my TEENSIZERS out there!

School started, kids are away and here I am trying to find the right clothes to wear everyday to work. Since my work is not always fashion-related (I teach!) I try to keep updated and fashionable without feeling out of place.

I had recently gotten a great "blouson" (A garment, such as a dress or shirt, with a fitted waistband over which material blouses.) at TARGET for $6.76, following the 80's spitit, I paired it with a cool belt I got from H&M at $14, black Capri pants and black sandals, you have no idea how many compliments I got!

The trick here is going 80's without going overboard, even if you read in magazines, time and again, that shoulder pads are back, BEWARE, they are not for every body, every style, and every occasion, and they are not your mother's shoulder pads!

Don't dress like a quarterback just yet. We will talk more about the topic,and for now, keep the 80's to the accessories, and maybe only one piece of clothing at a time.

Send you comments or questions, or even better pictures!!!!!!!! and don't forget to join the RSS feed, emails or twitter.
