Ashish!

It is hard to even think about the warm, layered clothing of Fall while it is getting hotter and hotter in New Orleans. But of course, that chilly time of year will be here before we know it…hopefully.

I haven’t been able to find good photos of the A/W 2011 collection from Ashish, which I am madly in love with. It so happens that the fabulous Style Bubble has a great post with a few photos and some proper photos of their magnificent creepers. Susie Bubble DIY’d her own pair and I have to say, I do like hers better and I plan on creating my own spiderweb tights once the weather permits.

Spring Brights and How to Wear Them

I did a post recently about a few of the colors that will be popular for this Spring, but the thing that will be most popular is simply color. Spring of course is a colorful season, but this Spring mixed and matched bright ensembles were all over the runways. There were bold splashes of color added to simple ensembles and outfits consisting of only bright pieces.

But if you’re not as daring as one Susie Bubble, who can immaculately piece together a look consisting of only bright hues, here are a few ways to ease yourself into the trend.

Try A Bright Pant:

Wear a bright high-waisted, cropped pant with a crisp white shirt and chic wedges. Pair with neutral accessories to really let the pants stand out.

Brighten Your Accessories:

Adding some bright accessories can easily spice up a simple outfit. They’re a great addition for those who aren’t sure how they feel about bold colors.

Bright Blouse:

Get a loose, silky blouse in a bright orange or other warm tone and tuck into a fitted beige skirt. Pair with brown shoes and belt it to break up the blouse and skirt. Simple gold jewelry with a turquoise accents adds another touch of color. (For a cool colored blouse, keep the beige but pair with black accessories and jewelry with hints of a warm tone)

Lite Brite Tights and Daring Shoes:

Jazz up any outfit with some brightly colored tights and a bold shoe. My favorite when it comes to bright tights is We Love Colors. They have so many colors to choose from, are super comfortable and great quality.

Pair both of them together, along with a bright blouse and bright pant for an ultra bright ensemble!

10 Fashionable Tweeters (that you should follow)!

I love Twitter. Not necessarily for the more mundane posts about people’s everyday activities. I like following my favorite stores, brands, celebs and most importantly, fashionistas!

So here (in no particular order) are ten of my favorite fashion-forward people to follow:

10. Susie Bubble

Susie Bubble is the edgy, eccentric, boundry-pushing gal behind Style Bubble. I like when bloggers are on Twitter, it’s a quick way to find out when they have a new post and a lot of more random things that aren’t necessarily blog-worthy but definitely Twitter-worthy.

9. Jeremy Scott

Jeremy Scott’s designs are arty, urban-inspired , and BRIGHT. He’s one of my favorite designers and his all caps Tweets can rival that of Kanye’s. He also has little bouts of inspiration that are pretty, well…..inspiring.

8. Dita Von Teese

Dita Von Teese is a burlesque queen and a fashion icon for those with classy, retro taste. Her tweets promote her upcoming shows, fashionable insight and absolutely gorgeous outfits.

7. The Budget Babe

The Budget Babe is a wonderful blog for the more frugally fashionable set. She tweets about blog posts, reviews, giveaways and one reason she is my favorite is because of how much she chats with her followers. She’s one to follow, even if you’re not on a budget.

6. Christian Siriano

The Project Runway winner and fashion phenom is one delightful Tweeter. A lot of his Tweets are about various celebs wearing his designs, photos from events and adorable posts about his adorable boyfriend.

5. Forever 21

We all know about Forever 21, the uber cheap and fashionable mega store.  But their Twitter is def worth following, not only will you be updated on new collections but there are some awesome giveaways. Keep up with their blog and lifestyle site, The Skinny and you’ll have a pretty good chance of scoring some great pieces in their Twitter Tuesday contests.

4. Lime Crime

Lime Crime is blogger Doe Deere’s cosmetics line. Bold, bright hues and eye catching colors make for some very interesting products. But the Lime Crime Twitter also links you to Doe Deere’s blog updates and you also get some Tweets from Doe’s friends/employees.

 

3.  Dani Stahl

Dani Stahl is Nylon Magazine’s style director and writer of their “Factory Girl” series in which Dani shows us what it’s like to spend a day with some of the most fashionable companies. Her Tweets are mostly those of an NYC socialite, which is still rather interesting.

2. Jean-Charles De Castelbajac

JC De Castelbajac has to be one of my absolute favorite fashion designers ever. My French isn’t the best, but I still enjoy following him. His cartoony, pop culture prints make for bright and shiny ensembles. Remember Lady Gaga’s dead Kermit jacket?

1. Jessica Stam

Jessica Stam is a Canadian-born supermodel who has been the face of Aldo, Dior, Gap, J. Crew and most recently Victoria’s Secret. It’s hard to walk through a mall (or down Rodeo Drive) and not see her face in a shop window. I love following her because she’s a quirky normal girl who loves her family, friends and the Simpsons,
