Jane By Design

I absolutely love this show! I love Jane and all her clothing and how she gets to work at a fashion company. I would love to have that job, even at my young age. If you have never watched this show before you definitely should. It’s about a girl who lives two lives. During the day she is a normal high school student while at night she works for a fashion company called Donovan Decker. Her best guy friend is always helping her keeping it a secret from her brother. It’s a really great show if you’re interested in fashion, humor and romance. The season 2 premiere was yesterday, June 5th, 2012, but you can catch weekly episodes every Tuesday at 9/8c on the ABC Family channel. Enjoy!

Neons!

Neon clothing, or as I like to call it, highlighter color clothing, is super fun! I love neon colors because it’s so bright and everyone will notice you. Plus, it is the perfect thing to wear during the summer. There are also a lot of different styles you can wear from shirts to shorts to dresses and accessories. What’s really perfect is to wear one neon color with another. My personal opinion is that if you wear, let’s say, a neon yellow shirt with yellow pants, I think it is a little overpowering or tacky. But it would be cute if you wore a neon pink shirt with neon green shorts and a neon pink thin belt.
Here are some of my personal favorite neon clothing:

 

Mossimo Supply Co. Juniors Denim Short

Neon Animal Bodycon Dress

Black Light Optional Neon Yellow Fuchsia Dress

Dolce T-Strap Sandal

Printed Crochet Fringe 2fer Top

Plaid and Stripes; Is This a Crime?

I have always heard that plaid and stripes don’t go together. Is it a bad thing? No, of course it isn’t, but I wouldn’t say it’s the best thing to wear. I once wore stripes and plaid without even noticing. I just thought it looked good together. But now when I tried on that exact outfit a year later, I thought it didn’t look so bad. I think the thing for mastering plaids and stripes is matching colors pretty well. For example, wearing a light blue and peach plaid shirt with a white and peach striped cardigan doesn’t look that bad. What would you do? Would you wear stripes and plaid?

Here are some cute styles of plaid and stripes:

Summer Maxis and Rompers

The best thing for me to wear in the summer is something that is comfortable and keeps me cool. I think Maxis and Rompers are the perfect thing to wear this summer. I love maxis because they can be beautiful, long, printed dresses that are very flowing so it’s very easy to move around. These kinds of dresses are perfect with a pair of shades and thong sandals.

Rompers are perfect to wear anywhere. There are also many different styles. They range from just one color to different prints. If I were to wear a romper I would either wear it with a pair of Vans or sandals, sunglasses (of course!!), and a medium sized belt to help distinguish the romper.

Shopping 5/19/2012


Yesterday I went to the mall and I stopped by Nordstrom, planning to buy some new shoes. I couldn’t decide between a pair of these beautiful Purple Pelmetto Women’s Classics Toms and a pair of these Vans Authentic Glitter Dots. I decided to get the Vans because they would be a little bit more durable than the Toms.
After that, I went to Forever 21 and I got a super cute lace top. I don’t exactly know what the top is called, sorry!
If you were to buy the Toms or Vans, you can wear them with a pair of yoga pants and a cute shirt…like the one I just bought yesterday.

Color Blocking

The easiest way to color block with clothing is to take really bright colors and put them together. For instance, try wearing a dark blouse with a bright colored skirt. Another alternative is to wear a very simple outfit but with a pair of shoes that are multi-colored. Even adding really big and bright accessories will help but make sure not to go overboard.
Here’s some color blocking ideas:


1.Richard Nicoll Color Block Dress

2.Alexander Wang Silk Combo Color Dress

3.Mint Twist Neck Color Block Dress

4.Velvet Torch Color Block Maxi Dress

5.Theory Color Block Tank Dress

6.Marc by Marc Jacobs Silk Color Block Tank

7.Sonia by Sonia Rykiel Color Block Skirt

8.Missoni Block Color Dress

9.Topshop Colour Block Bikini

10. Marc by Marc Jacobs Silk Colorblock Jumper

11. Topshop Colour Block 1 Shoulder Tunic

12. Alexander Wang Fitted Combo Dress

Spring Floral

One of my favorite prints is floral. I love flowers so it’s really fun to wear floral prints. Floral goes with pretty much anything. You can pair it with a pair of flip flops, denim and some cute sunglasses. I especially love floral dresses. And it usually looks good with a brown leather braided belt.
My personal favorite way to wear floral is a floral dress with a brown leather belt and a jean jacket with a pair of fun bangles and a pair of Vans. Whether the floral print is big or very small, it is always a spring thing. Here’s some ideas about floral.

Feathers and Denim

I love the way that feathers and denim go so good together. Try a denim top with a pair of colorful shorts and a feather accessory. You could wear a peacock feather headband, a colorful feather necklace or even if your feather necklace is very bland you could always add another accessory to help with the color. Like a pink headband or a or a big colorful bracelet.  Here are a couple examples of my idea:
