The fashion (Ad)dict

It’s the ads that gets me revved up for fashion and it’s ready-to-wear collections and even more excited about the upcoming Fashion Week exposing all new threads to come.

Fashion Week is the closet we’ll get to predicting our future and sometimes that even falls short. I’m so excited to see what Spring 2015 has to offer but I’m amazed but the intensity of the Fall/Winter collections.

From the tough side of Moschino to the masculinity of Escada, the bejeweled goddess of Alexander McQueen and all the other finer threads.

Fashion ads has to be something that is a bit old fashioned but definitely here to stay. Could you image your favorite magazine without ads from your favorite designer? Yep, me neither. Advertisement has grown like no other but something’s thing are perfect being the same.

Here’s a few of my favorite ads.

Monkey See…

Quick! Would you wear these 3.1 Phillip Lim apron trousers? I’m sure most of my readers instantly said no. Oh but what about…now?

Yes of course 75 percent of you who said heck no! “I’d never wear such a thing!” While others simply chuckled and said no…the moment you laid eyes on your dear Beyonce you instantly fell in love with such a trouser and immediately tried to think of ways that you could blow a nice 650 bucks on a pair a pants you have nothing to wear with. Originality and perspective has pretty much gone with the wind. Celebrities today are giving models a run for their money. The more the music industry and fashion begin to mate, the more designers wish to have the star of the hour in their threads instead of the perfectly shaped model. Now tell me, who leads your style?

Quick Fix

Every once and almost never, I have moments when just don’t feel like dealing with my hair. I love change and I get bored with my hair at times so I try to find ways to spice it up. I wore a Zara Man Collection scarf to an outing with friends and it made my simple look complete. There’s nothing to it, just twist the scarf together and go for the tie that you like and there you have it. Quick and easy hair.

Plaid Session

Plaid has always been a must-have for Fall and that hasn’t changed a bit. One thing that has changed is the way that I wear it. This time I paired it up with one of my favorite skirts from the Zara Woman.

“Effortless style is the vest style one could have. “

I’m wearing Zara from head to toe.

I was taking a break and I strolled through the Zara Man section of Zara and there he was…this amazing bomber. Bomber jackets take me back to my childhood when my father had a closet full of them. I distinctly remember one simply because it was a BMW bomber jacket with colored sleeves only to match his cobalt blue BMW. Did I mention that I’m an eighties baby? Well yeah, that will help you to understand my father’s choice of clothing. Any-who, this quilted baby is the new bomber. Now if could only decide if I want this for me or someone special.

H&M definitely knows how to give the designer world a run for their money. “Borrowing” ideas and constructing them for the stylish women on a budget (like myself) who love all things runway. I honestly thought I was imagining that I’ve seen the H&M replica some place but I couldn’t remember where. The model on the left is wearing the H&M version of the Dries Van Noten Fall 2014 Ready-to-Wear Collection. I’m not sure about you but I think H&M did a great job with the pattern, silhouette, hues, and material. All things that would determine if the fast fashion replica meets the cut!Check,check, check, and check!. The collection is affordable and of course less than 1,000 dollars. So, who really has something to lose? H&M taking the risk of being sued or Dries Van Noten underestimating the hands of the fast fashion?

Fall Grocery List

So fall is near and it’s nothing like before. Yes, of course you’ll need knitwear but have you considered buying matching pants to your favorite knitted top? Get out a piece of paper and prepare your fall grocery list. One of my most favorite trends is the matchy matchy combo. No! It doesn’t look like a pair of thermals but a comfy but cute fall look instead. I know, where would you find such a thing? I’ve got you covered find it here ,here here and here. sure you’re probably thinking I’m crazy and trust me, I don’t consider all trends great but Celine and Marc Jacobs has placed knitwear on the scene in a new way. There’s always other (typical) ways to wear knitwear but at least use it as a layering piece or pair it up with a pair of your favorite wide leg pants.
