We've been missing a lot of FashionHaps while we've been busy being grateful (Sorry, it's a shade diff since there's just the one of me :)). Over the next week, we'll be catching up on ALL of them. So consider this a morsel, a taste, a fashion hors d'oeuvres!
Christy Hemme is back, baby! And it is sooo good! She's showing off a bodycon version of the classic LBD. This version gets a sexy vibe from its sheer sleeves. And Christy also brings in a touch of an industrial feel with her black sandals. the chunky straps make them super-powerful and the big buckle lends that techno cool. This blend of vamp+fierce is one of her style hallmarks, and well worth emulating. It's also a great example of the black monochrome look we highlighted in our Inspiration Board earlier this fall ;).
We go from fierce to laid-back with this look from Lana, culled from her European trip last month. She's paired a cute sweater with a retro (turtleneck+cropped) feel with gray skinny jeans. I'm a massive fan of her mid-calf boots (more on that later :) ). The curved tops give these a nudge into Western homage, without being overtly cowboy-esque. The whole outfit is fab way to be stylish and totally comfy at the same time! If you want to wear this look someplace where showing skin isn't appropriate, just layer a longer-than-the-sweater slim-fitting tee underneath and presto! You're good to go :)
Yep, this is time numero uno I'm going to talk about it: Alicia Fox's new hair. I def have gotten behind on FashionHaps lol. When Foxy first did this, I was like "whoa" - only because it's pretty dramatic! But hey, she's a dramatic kinda gal and I adore her for it. I like this hairstyle when she pairs it with ring gear and fierce casusal, but I LOVE the way it works here. LOVE. Can I say it again? LOVE. Here's why: Foxy's suit is softly sexy. With the low, swooped neckline of her cami, it's like a sophisticated-Rihanna thing. Her black suit is C.H.I.C., as black suits nearly always are. Against all this ultra-classic fashion, her hair becomes that punch of bold, wild-child magic that makes the whole look fascinating! Her edgy hairstyle plays against the typecast of her clothes and the effect is devastatingly fabulous. Just savor that awhile. PS Her statement earrings and simple necklace = flawless.
So, I asked for a switch...and I got it...a little :) Summer has changed from a cropped top to a non-crop. She's stayed with the lace+pencil skirt look, this time choosing an intense, mystical blue which is divine. It's like the perfect shade for pretty much everyone, including Summer. The BIG ;) news here is that she's jettisoned her pumps for suede OTK boots. Any change is good, so I'm happy about it! I'm still holding out for a romper or a pantsuit though :). Hint hint ;)
