Fashion Speaks Through Film

Fashionistas!

I have just discovered fashion videos. I know, I know, I am behind the times, but I found them fascinating and pleasing to the eye. I have watched several different videos and I do not  know the fashion designer that this film is promoting, but whoever it is this is a brilliant idea to get their new line out into the open.

The editor did a variety of different angles. He does close up of the hold building, trees, and windows; this is pleasing to the eye because it is not all focused on the clothes. He also focuses on the clothing, of course. Some of the shots are out of focus then come into focus.

All in all, the film has a modern and vintage feel too it. I am in love with the contrast between the old and new. It gives the buyer and critic a different perspective on the clothing and as a designer as a whole.

What in the World…

Hello Dears,

First and foremost, please watch this video. I know Jersey Shore is not the classiest show but this voices my opinion on, just wait, denim. Denim is a thing if the past to me but o the fashion world it is taking it by storm.

On MSN, there is an article on the 20 Must-Haves, and of course, a denim shirt is on the list. The shirt could be super cute, but most people wear it totally wrong. Do not wear your mom jeans with a denim shirt; you might get the same treatment as the video above.

Here are some helpful guidelines to follow. These options are super cute and you cannot mess them up. They are full proof! The denim shirt can be cute but make sure you do it right!

Go Green!

Hello Fellow Fashionistas!

Fab Lane here, and it is officially fall! Fall is my favorite season; it brings cool weather, warm colors, and all of my favorite fall clothes. I can finally slip on my tall boots and cute jackets, but the fashion God’s have shaken up the spectrum.

The new look and my new obsession is the military look! Who knew the cargo look would come back to haunt us. Although cargo shorts aren’t for everyone, there is an alternative. My favorite piece of the military ensemble is the army green cargo skinny’s (that’s a mouth full).

These pants can be very versatile. You can dress them up or dress them down. These pants are essential to ones fall outfit. They will never fail you. When I first found that the army look was in, I was not a fan, but I went to a local boutique, The Wooden Nickel, and they had these pants. The stylist insisted on me trying them on and so I did. It was love at well, second sight. I highly recommend at least trying them on. Who knows maybe it will be love at first sight! Go Army!

XOXO,

Slave for Fashion?

Yes, we are all slaves for fashion (at least the readers of this blog are). A new  trend that has become a hot new accessory is fur. Everything from boots covered in fur, to fur vest and coats. Rachel Zoe is a big advocate for fur. She is a worldwide known stylist and has many followers. Although this is a hot new accessory, animal rights activists do not like it. Animals are literally becoming slaves to fashion.

Many designers have taken advantage of this out burst. They have begun to design faux fur accessories. With this they have started a new movement. Faux fur is the new thing! Whether you hate or love faux fur, it is the new “it” accessory. I have just recently bought my first faux fur vest. Michael Kors is the designer of this beautiful piece.

I know you are dying to know where to get the fabulous piece. The Wooden Nickel is a great place to start looking. This is where I bought my faux fur vest. They have great customer service and are willing to help you with anything. I hope you find this enlightening, and I hope you are excited about this new trend. I know I am ready for cold weather to come around so that I can wear my new accessory.

People watching at its finest.

In the midst of the travel season, I feel the need to inform you all on airport fashion. Have you ever gone to the web site People of Walmart, if not look now. I am currently sitting in the Houston Hobby Airport, and I am, of course, people watching. Some of these people need help! One woman walked by and was wearing all white. The outfit was screaming, “IT’S AFTER LABOR DAY!” Another is sitting in front of me wearing a cute top but she obviously dressed in the dark when she put her pants and shoes on. She is wearing brown cords, which are obviously flared, and are tucked into old cowboy boots. PLEASE, do not be these women!

Although these pictures are out there, I know some did do this. In the midst of the travel season here are some helpful and fashionable travel rules.

Rule #1. Always look presentable. You never know whom you are going to run into or see. It is also common courtesy too look presentable.

Rule #2. You should always wear a fashionable, comfortable, and simple shoe while traveling. Leave your slippers at home. Boots are an ideal shoes to wear. They are easy to take on and off and they go with everything.

Rule #3. Accessories are your best friends. A simple v-neck shirt with a nice pair of skinny jeans and boots can be jazzed up with a simple scarf. Money does not grow on trees, so a fun cheap scarf is the way to go. I got a great bright orange fall scarf from The Wooden Nickel in Stillwater, Oklahoma, and it is wonderful. I can throw it on with a plain t-shirt, and it looked like it took me hours to get ready. A great web site to go to is Piperlime.

Warning: May Require a Personal Trainer.

Hello Dears,

I recently went shopping and shockingly discovered crop tops are still in style. Yes ladies, that means it is time to hit the gym. Although they are cute, these tops mean business and are not muffin top friendly. So ladies lets get or ducks in a row and shape up for this spring season.

Crops tops this season have no boundaries. Designers are doing basically whatever they want. Everything from neon colors, to darks, and even to crop tops that one would rarely call a crop top, but they are all the rage.

A crop top is a must have in the closet for this spring season. They can be dressed up and dressed down. A crop top with a pair of cute skinny’s and some bright Keds would be so cute for this spring. This blog gives some examples of outfits. So ladies, be fearless and go outside the box with a crop top.

Happy Reading!

Hey Fashionistas!

In the spirit of the Halloween holiday, I had a question to ask you all about what you think is an appropriate costume for a college student. A lot of girls feel the need to go for the sexy look on Halloween and many go for the creative side of Halloween. To tell y’all the truth, I hate the girls who dress slutty. Just because its Halloween does not mean you can have your alter ego come out.

There is a fashionable approach to this Halloween shindig. Pottery barn and J. Crew have come out with Halloween costumes and they are adorable! You could even just through together some fashionable pieces in your own closet and dress up as a famous person. The Wooden Nickel has a lot of new really out there tops. These would  be perfect for a Halloween costumes and you could wear them on a night out.

There are many different approaches to costumes, but I want to get y’all opinion on the subject.

A Little Bit of Everything.

Hello Dears!

Do you ever have a day when you have no clue what to wear, the ones were you stand and stare at your closet; there are also the days when you try on basically everything but nothing looks right. I had one of those days.

Every girl needs a great pair of heels. With spring approaching fast, nude heelsare the new rage. You can wear nude heels with everything! They are also great for us short girls because nude heels give the illusion of long legs.

Another great buy is a cute cropped leather jacket. It will never go out f style, and along with the nude heels, the jacket can be dressed up or down. I just got a Nicole Miller leather jacket; I am obsessed with it! I have worn it with a formal dress and I have worn it with a Hanes t-shirt.

Happy shopping!

Rain Rain Go Away…Or Stay?

Hello Dears,

First of all Happy Easter! Hope your day was filled with family and friends. It is a cold, dreary, and wet Easter day here, and I am puzzled on what to wear. I have the cutest spring dress with gladiator wedges, but I have no clue what to wear over it.

Elle Magazine’s website had just what I was looking for and solved my puzzle. Elle has an article on their website called, Make a Splash, and they made a splash alright. They show the cutest trench raincoats, waterproof bags, umbrellas, and rain boots, basically everything you need for a Spring rain.

After looking through this article, my day got a little brighter. My Spring dress was going to get the right accessory, a trench coat. You can get a trench coat pretty much anywhere! I got mine at Target for $30, practically a steal! If you are the one for labels, Burberry makes a classic trench coat. The choice is really yours! Happy shopping loves!

The Brighter, The Better.

Hello dears,

Can you feel that sweet summer air? Summer is right around the corner, and I know you lovely ladies are wondering what you are going to wear. This summer, fashion has no limits. This season designers and consumers are setting their own rules.

A hot ticket item for this summer is an oversized, bright bag. They are perfect for going out on the town or for simply going to the beach. This specific bag can be dressed up or dresses down. You cannot go wrong.

I found this other bag through Rachel Zoe’s blog. This bag is speechless. Its got the right pop of color to add to any outfit and has an edge factor with the animal print. Her blog is a fashion bible. I highly recommend visiting her blog daily. She has great finds and give fabulous advice.
