BoLd ColOrs && FALL?

Spring/Summer 2012 was all about colors, and not just soft pastels, bold neons crept back on the scene. Many of us were caught falling for the catchy trend, pairing up skirts, shoes, accessories, dresses and more to be apart of the Spring/Summer soiree. Now even though summer feels as if it just began a few weeks ago, it's that time again (well in a few weeks anyways), half way through August, and a few more weeks until September! YES September, this means my birthday is coming up lol ;) ...Oh and that fashion week will be here before we know it. Yes, chicas - time to bring those boots out of hiding, because they’re all you’ll be wearing for a while, well atleast in MN -_-
Now I understand that neutral rule that comes with the fall season, but do we have to keep it simple? I, personally feel that it's fine to keep some of your spring/summer garments out of that box you store away when it starts getting nippy outside. Of course you don't want to over do it by wearing all you bright colors at the same time - you might blind someone with those neon pants and that bright white snow glaring in the sun ha - BUT keep it fun.
Below are some ways to add a little color to your fall ensemble ;)

When putting your outfits together for fall don't forget to accessorize with scarfs, bangles, cuffs, earrings, all the way down to you socks :)


Preen silk top / Precis Petite sweetheart neckline top, $61 / Graphic sweater, $39 / McQ by Alexander McQueen knit legging / Miso cotton shorts, $11 / Jeffrey Campbell wedge high heels, $210 / Ilse Jacobsen orange boots, $150 / Dr. Martens mid heel boots, $130


What to wear to FNO?

My good friend Ashley ( creator of  Moondaisy ) && I have been trying to figure out what we are going to
 wear during this New York trip, && not only is it "New York" we have to worry about but Fashions Night Out specifically!
Now I'm the kind of gal who loves to play with anything, I love skirts, palazzo pants, shorts and LONG dresses, I'm a dancer - so those tiny little minnie dresses get no love from me :-P
Ash's style is similar to what I like. We are both obsessed with anything that has the initials J.C. , we both digg Platforms and leggings and tend to stick with dark or natural colors.
I decided to put up an image board of some looks I want to rock while in NYC. I have also provided tags on what I included and where you can find these stylish threads.
Let me know what you think, and feel free to help me and my girl come up with fun fits to put together :)
p.s - be sure to  check out Ashley's her store Moondaisy :)

Meet Coral

I have had the opportunity to work with some amazing people and recently I linked up with a child-hood friend and gorgeous gal by the name Coral. She is an amazing model with a fierce attitude who has put her trust in ME, to make her fabulous and all of the above ;)

Since we have partnered up, I have assisted her with choosing her wardrobe for photoshoots and videos.

She is now on her way to conquer her dreams of becoming a super model. I know she is going to kill it! && even though she is moving to California to persue her future, we will continue to work together.

Everyone be sure to follow my lovely chica on her journey to the TOP ;)
