Day to Night: Leopard

In my opinion, leopard print isn’t going anywhere. It may disappear from the runways and fashion mags every now and then, but it’s always a classic staple and best presented with a retro twist. So I got to playing around with styling a dress I’ve been coveting and decided to do a Day to Night post.

The dress:

Trashy Diva’s Ballerina Mini Dress.

I absolutely, completely adore Trashy Diva. Their clothing has the most flattering fit, perfect tailoring and is the best combination of modern and retro.

DAY

For day, you want to choose simple accessories and really let the dress do all the work. A simple cropped black cardigan or shrug (unbuttoned to show off the neckline) and black oxfords keep it relaxed and casual. Minimal jewelry like a leather wrap bracelet work well with the shoes and bag. I chose a structured brown leather bag to contrast all the black and play off the brown in the dress.

 

NIGHT

I went absolutely retro glamorous for the night look. Red and Leopard print are a classic combination and one that I couldn’t avoid. I chose a retro red pump and black stockings. For jewelry, I intentionally chose House of Harlow 1960, one of my favorites and I think a perfect compliment to this dress. Grab a vintage or vintage inspired clutch or evening bag, a beige trench for that wonderful modern/retro edge, a glorious updo and you’re good to go. Even better than the trench would the be the black velvet Bustle Jacket from Trashy Diva.

Valentino Couture Spring 2010

Valentino Spring 2010 Couture

My favorite of the couture shows had to be Valentino. Starting with the pastel dyed hair, the nude lips and bright masks of eyeshaow….it was all so gorgeous. I wish I were blonde so I could throw in some lavender streaks.

It was definitely one of the most colorful shows, and all of the colors mixed beautifully. I also love the delicate yet constructed fabric that is draped and wrapped everywhere.

I want these leggings, and this kimono/robe/awesome shirt.

Who would have ever thought pale granny pink and futuristic silver would be so wonderful together?

Designer Profile: Felder Felder

Felder Felder

For my first designer profile, I’ve chosen a designer I stumbled upon literally a couple hours ago. Design duo Felder Felder are twins Daniela and Annette Felder. Originally from Berlin, these up-and-coming designers only recently graduated from Central Saint Martins in London. The twins have a signature grunge inspired style in their collections, and their Autumn/Winter 09-10 line has been described as rock-chic. The Felder’s have said they are inspired by the likes of Iggy Pop, who I am a huge fan of. Grungy, fashionable, rock star chic is my favorite kind of style, so I was immediately drawn into Felder Felder’s collection. Almost all of the outifts from their recent show would work extremely well off the runway. I would love to wear any one of these outfits, Felder Felder will definitely be an inspiration to my wardrobe for a long time. 

 

Vogue has great photos from their Autumn/Winter 09-10 show at London Fashion Week.

House of Harlow 1960

I don’t know about all of you out there, but I can’t help but love Nicole Richie. Well, Nicole Richie after she stopped being friends with Paris Hilton, grew up, and became a mom. Her style went from club-hopper to gorgeous fashionista. She now has her own jewelry line called House of Harlow 1960. I know this jewerly line isn’t brand new, but I’d like to write about it anyway. The line was named after Richie’s daughter Harlow, which I think is really sweet. I think it’s also a great name for the line.

More after the jump!
