Top Trend at Fashion Week Spring 2012: White on White

19 Sep

The one trend taking over spring fashion week 2012 is none other than white on white. I’m all about white on white; however, just be careful you don’t look like a marshmallow! How can you avoid this flop? Well, designers like Vera Wang, Rachel Roy and DKNY are all using light-weight to sheer fabrics so you’ll look almost angelic.

So, are you a fan of this trend? Check out my picks below and tell me what you think!

HP Goes Fashion Forward

12 Oct

UPDATE (December 4, 2008): It has finally arrived! HP Vivienne Tam “digital clutch” is now available for order at www.hpdirect.com/minivt. If you order by Dec. 12, you can get one just in time for holiday giving.

A few days ago I was approached by HP to check out their new special edition notebook. This stylish product took my interest and drove me to share the news!

Vivienne Tam has paired with Hewlett-Packard to design a special edition notebook available early next year. The lightweight notebook has an uncanny resemblance to a silk-print clutch with its rich colors and peony print. During Fashion Week in New York, Tam incorporated the print into her Spring 2009 line and the invitations to her show.

Finally, technology and fashion come together. It’s smart on HP’s part to join with a fashion designer because it opens access to another type of audience. The notebook is targeted to the fashionable woman with a busy lifestyle who puts importance and thought into the style of her possessions.

HP has highlighted reactions to this product on their Facebook profile. The women explain how impressed they are with the notebook’s size and stylish design. I feel the same way and can’t wait to get my hands on one of these beautiful HP notebooks.

What are your thoughts on this HP notebook?

Jump Around!

7 Oct

My #1 favorite pick from every fashion week is…the jumpsuit!

Bring solace to your wardrobe conundrums by investing in a few chic jumpsuits for Spring ’09. I promise, you won’t ever have to worry about piecing together outfits during the unpredictable weather season.

Stylists are catching on to this trend and pulling jumpsuits from designer racks. In the newest issue of OK! Magazine, issue #41, stars like Blake Lively and Amy Adams are red-carpet ready in stylish jumpers.

Shown “on the catwalks of New York, London and Milan so far, there’ve been dozens of all-in-one styles from a wide-reaching sphere of designers,” explains Ruby.

Designers like Jill Stuart, Derek Lam and Stella McCartney are all about the chic one-piece outfits. The Wall Street Journal says, “this seasons jumpsuits, however, are hewing closer to the body, and are taking on more intricate construction than previous billowy styles.”

New York Magazine’s The Cut assures that a “one piece is all you’ll need.” These easy to wear garments are secret weapons when you don’t have the time to pull together an outfit. Jumpsuits can be worn for any occasion; dress them up or dress them down, anytime is a great time for a sophisticated and fun onesie.

I remember when jumpsuits were my go-to outfit at age 6 and, boy, was I comfortable! Now, at age 22, we can reminisce about the good-old-days in a more sophisticated fashion.
