|absolutely love the poster by the way|
While I have yet to read the book for this movie im complete intrigued and i'm so excited to see the movie! But something tells me i should read the book first O.o highly doubt thats going to happen... in any case the clothing from the movie grabbed my attention, so when i found out that H&M was collaborating with designer Trish Summerville, i thought.....can i pull this look off though? The collection consists of faux-leather coats, biker pants, shredded tees, and dark denim miniskirts.
I'm still on the fence on this here pants, sadly i have something similar already in my closet, sad...
If there was one thing i'd purchase from the collection it would be these faux?-leather leggings/pants
everything else seems basic...My clear answer to myself was no...just no. But i do love the looks put together in the campaign. Just really doubt i'd be able to pull the look off, then again you never know, isn't fashion about taking risks and trying new things?
While I do like the pieces put together in the ad campaign, the pieces on their own don't exactly push any buttons to make me want to go make a purchase, they already look like clothes i can either make or already have in my wardrobe, not to knock the designer, then again i guess we are paying for the brand. Yea, we'll see where and how that goes as far as my money is concerned. Stay tuned to see if i decide to try one of these looks in an upcoming outfit post, and i ask you...would you try this look?
CAROLINA HERRERA LACE EMPIRE WAISTCommonly used in the late 18th and 19th centuries (and inspired by ancient Greco-Roman styles), this waistline hits just below the bust. (For a more classic reference, watch any Jane Austen movie adaptation.) From evening gowns to baby-doll dresses, it remains a fashion-forward (and flattering) silhouette.

Icon: YVES SAINT LAURENT, Designer... why?
Because he was only 21 when he unveiled his first collection as head designer for Christian Dior in 1958. Because he knew that le Smoking - a tuxedo with a nip here, a tuck there, and a lean, body-skimming silhouette - could make a woman look jaw-droppingly sexy. because his innovations were all over the map, from the trapeze dress to the safari look to thigh-high boots.

Marc by Marc Jacobs
A velvet blazer is a must have item in a girls closet! promise, you will be happy when you get one. It not only perfect for the fall/winter time in terms of trends right now, but it keeps you super warm and its a classic piece that you will be keeping for years, and possibly pass on.
I found this blazer (above) for only $10.00 and the brand is the gap, which now has a similar blazer going for upwards of 200-400 dollars (uhm...O.o. yea). After i found it i said, eh, its cute. However, when i got home and did some research i saw that this was one of the top trendy items on many fall/winter runways this season. check out this recent post on velvet accents for the fall/winter - fashionbombdaily .
Little did i know this when i purchased it. Great find i suppose. And what made it even better, it wasn't black.I have so many black items in my closet, it was begging for color, i just cant help it, i love black. I absolutely adore this color! Just have to get it dry cleaned and it'll be in a post coming real soon. whats your take on this velvet trend? and do you plan to make good use of it this fall/winter?
