Steal or Splurge?

As we all know Victoria Beckham is a fashionista with impeccable taste. She always looks glamorous even when she is rocking a casual chic style. We can always learn a thing or two from her and her flawless outfits, especially with this outfit she is rocking which is right on point with the trends right now. We’ve been seeing a lot of these flowy pants in different colors and prints that tie at the ankle. Adding the blazer to this look makes it elegant while still maintain a casual feel. The great thing is that you can go all out and fork over some good money, but there’s nothing more than I love than a good steal on a celebrity outfit. Here are both option for you to pick and choose.

Enjoy!

It’s officially summer, you know what that means…. summer must haves are here! We’ve come up with the perfect summer ready outfit and accessories. Whether you’re going to tan with your friends or to a pool party, you can’t go wrong with these summer essentials. We’ve got you covered from what you should be wearing to what to put in your hair to maintain those beach waves.

Our number one bikini choice for this summer is Triangl Swimwear. These bikinis are simple, but the perfect pop of color. They are great for accessorizing with any cover up or with Asos’ summer kimonos.

Kimonos are all the rage this summer. You can wear them to the beach with you bikini or throw it over some jean shorts and a simple tank top to dress up your outfit. It’s a simple piece that you must have in your closet this summer to accessorize any outfit.

Now I know finding the perfect summer bag may seem difficult, but I am proud to say after lots and I means lots of research I am 100% obsessed with Hudson+Bleecker’s tote bags. They have literally thought of everything and lined the inside of their totes with water resistant material, which makes it perfect to take your tote anywhere you want without having to worry about ruining it. The Hudson+Bleecker tote is literally mess free, so don’t be afraid to take it wherever you go this summer.

To finish accessorizing your outfit you need some killer sandals this summer. Kayu has designed the cutest sandals that are perfect to rock all summer long. At only $105 you’ll be glad you bought these sandals. To complete your summer look you need Bumble and Bumble’s surf spray, which gives you the perfect beach waves without actually having to go to the beach.

Kanupriya & Kayu Steal the Show on The Carrie Diaries!

There is no debating the most powerful television character in the fashion industry is none other than the enviable Carrie Bradshaw.  So while Sex and the City can only be re-lived in re-runs, we are so grateful to be able to continue to fawn over Carrie through the genius styling of Eric Daman (also beloved for his work on Gossip Girl) in The Carrie Diaries.  AnnaSophia Robb kills it as a young CB, carrying a bright herringbone handmade clutch from Kayu in last week’s episode while Maggie, Bradshaw’s best friend, played by Katie Findlay, channels her inner bohemian in a stunning trio bracelet by Kanupriya.  Stay tuned for more coveted looks each week on one of our new favorite stylish shows.

Marks and Spencer A/W Collection 2013

Trends often dictate what fashion brands would sell to consumers, but there are times that these brands go overboard.  That could mean disaster to some companies.  Established fashion designer, Carolina Herrera, knows perfectly well that following trends does not automatically equate to business success.  When asked by Ireland website’s, The Independent, regarding her fail-safe tips to be fashionable and fabulous, she said that “it takes a lot of effort to be effortless (as) Style shouldn’t be complicated.  A simple dress is much more difficult to wear than one with ruffles and flowers and big sleeves.”  Recently, one popular UK retail company has put in all of its resources to rejuvenate their less than stellar performance in the women’s fashion industry.  Did they just follow a trend, or are they establishing a new style that people will love?

It had been constant news since the beginning of summer, and by August, Marie Claire Magazine has been one of the first to comment on the new fashion line of Marks and Spencer. “The Marks & Spencer autumn/winter 2013 collection is the end product of six months of intensive customer research and the many sleepless nights of Marks & Spencer’s new style director, Belinda Earl. M&S has had a stylish makeover and we are loving it,” Marie Claire’s Suzannah Ramsdale wrote.

Now that we’re in the middle of the autumn season, Marks and Spencer has been very aggressive in its marketing.  During London Fashion Weekend last September, “Sashaying down the white catwalk, models were dressed in an array of gorgeous belted day dresses, cosy knits, biker jackets, lashings of lace and leather, animal print, graphic lines, Chanel-esque tweeds, tartans and 1940s skirt suits,” Amie Mulderrig of Guardians-Series.co.uk reported after attending the aforementioned fashion show.  The recently released autumn apparel and the upcoming winter collection are aimed to reinvigorate the womenswear division of the UK retail giant.

In the past years, M&S has been swallowed up by too many trends.  “M&S is a national institution, a brand men and women alike have, for years, held close to their heart,” Mulderrig pointed out.  But the loyalty had been tainted by the retail chain’s seemingly “desperate bid to appear hip and cool” in past years, as Mulderrig puts it. This where new style director Earl comes in.  Earl was entrusted to redirect the ‘national institution’ away from its chosen lacklustre path.

There has been critical acclaim to the fashion line shown by Marks and Spencer in catalogues, runways, and TV ads.  Their real performance, however, is to be measured by the consumers.  And that is where the challenge truly begins, as the public has become even more fickle and wary when it comes to fashion.
