With the all winter white and deep dark colors in fall it is a refreshing break to see some color! Bright jewel toned heels and pumps will take you well into spring and summer as neon is making a big splash all the way till Summer next year! So get your moneys worth and splurge on a nice pair. Wear these shoes with basic black trousers or an LBD (little black dress)
Accessories take note and its top to find out what styles fit into your wardrobe. Like clothing styles, the styles for jewelry run a full gamine and of course it is difficult to decide which trends fit into your closet. So here is the breakdown:
Rockers and Punk
Big chunky cutouts are great for a subtle rocker feel but spike studs are also in and if you are wearing something causal then the studs are a great choice. For punk dressing, add a pop of neon chain and the woven knit styles that are seen everywhere. Chan Luu started the craze!
keep highly studded items including handbags and jewelry to causal dressing and use chunky cutouts for more special occasions. For Punker choose the neon chain for special occasions and use woven cord bracelets for casual wear.
Flowers and leaves jewelry can be incorporated into both fashions styles for Romance and vintage. Simple necklace charms on thin chain is great for causal looks and can be layered for evening wear.
To be continued next week with causal and glamor…
We are all strapped for cash and these hard times call for strategy and psychic fashion powers. Lucky for you i am psychic enough for the both of us!! So you started shopping for fall accessories but you want to spend your money on an item you can use for at least two seasons. This week we feature a handbag that can accomplish this great feat: The bucket bag! This bag has earth tones for fall and bright colors for Spring! The bridge the gap between the two and allow for maxium use, try these styles!
Go for transition colors
Instead of picking up a black or camel variety, go for a color that acts as a neutral in fall but can be bright enough for Spring. Pastels in purple, and pink can work well between seasons. White is also a great transition color since it is in for the fall and for the spring.
Go for texture
We all know that ethnic prints (animal anyone?) and textures are in for the fall so let’s use that to our advantage. Purchase woven looks now to embrace the ethnic trend that will run straight through to next fall.
Go for prints
Prints have seen a revival recently when it use to be rare. Printed bags can look ethic in the fall but have a new life in summer and spring months.
If all else fails, stick to your style. Classics stick to camel styles with minimal detail. Rockers and Punks try studded or edgy woven styles. Vintage and Romance go for ruffles and pastel features or leather cutout varieties. Sporty go for the prints. When its your own style, it never fails to be out of style.
Who doesn’t love shoes? And this fall we have so much styles to choose from but not all are as feet friendly as this shoes. Flat knee high boots are really versatile and comfortable. I bought my first pair early this year because I am what you call a fashion psychic. Yep, I can see into the fashion future. So here we go…
it is very hard to find stud accents on these boots so trade studs for buckles. Buckles are considered a punk stable a guide of first cousin to the rocker style. I picked this version from sears from 35.99.
I also liked this version for 35.00 which features studs and buckles from Sears.
Romance and Vintage
Look for floral and lace details for these shoes to fit right into your style. I saw these boots at Sears for 39.99 and fell in love with the dusty gray and floral accents.
The rider style of these boots are a great style for you to embrace since they have a classic feel. I prefer camel for a classic look but this black Gianni Bini give a wink to the style.
Try the varieties that combine sweater with the knee high boot style. These lace up Big Buddha flat knee high boots have a sweater accent and lace up for a sneaker and socks look.
Fur accents are the best accessory for the fall and knee high boots that feature this detail are just right. These Aldo boots are on sale at 6pm.com and are a perfect fit.
Versatile, functional, and stylish, these bags can hold everything just in time for the holidays. So here are the best bags for your style (don’t know what it is then take our quiz).
If you want this bag type to fit into your style; try one that is basic black and features studs on the pocket or strap. A black and white version can be edgy as well like the Chanel bag below.
To get a deal for less in this style, tune into our get it for less handbag edition.
For a classic version of this style, go for the satchel shape in the ultra basic brown. Pronounced stitching, and simple locks make the below bag perfect for the classic chic.
For this style, my own, I would look for quilting and pastel colors. Quilting has a vintage feel while color’s like purple and pink add a touch of romance.
Look for details like gold or silver colors or stitching to fit into your style. Also, try a paired down rocker style bag like the one below.
This look is not for sporty types but a backpack with two pockets will do the trick!
The rocker trend refuses to die and i can’t be happier. So it’s no surprise that the rocker girl’s shoe staple is once again in for fall, the flat ankle boot. This time around instead of just studded details the boots now have edgy details like straps, buckles and hardware. The finish of the boot is now more worn and the flat heel more chunky. I own a pair of ankle boots given to me by Steve Madden’s buyer and I love them so much a barely wear them, they are distressed with chains and crystals. I’m definitely taking them out this fall! So I will choose a pair that can fit with ever style and tell you what they go with in your closet!
Pair these boots with your fav skinny jeans and distressed leather jacket. Can also be done with mini skirt, leggings and fav vintage or current concert tee.
I chose these awesome boots from Joie because they have a dusty look as if you just came off the back of a Harley and the criss-cross strap details are edgy but not the typical studs that have been over done.
Pair these boots with long flowy dresses and dark floral patterns and throw on your denim jacket. You can also pair these with a nice lace top and vintage jeans.
I chose these stunning boots from Cole Haan because they have that Victorian look but are made modern with the gunmetal buckles.
Even a laid back girl can appreciate a good boot. You can pair them with your fav tee and jeans or you can waer them with a maxie tshirt dress and fedora.
I chose these Aqua Boots because they have a nice distressed finish but are clean and simple with the perfect strap detail that can be worn with just about anything!
This is your guide for all your shoes you will ever need this fall in every style. Today’s focus is the ankle wedge where comfort meets edgy. This trend may seem for rockers but I think all styles can empress this style. Most of the trend magazines are focusing on the shape in boring suede styles (lucky if we get a print). This post is to feature a suede shoe you would love in your own style so here we go..
Causal and Atheltic
So you think you would never find boots as great looking or comfortable has sneakers, think again. We love these sneaker boot ankle wedges from Marc by Marc Jacobs.
The suede wedge boots that grace the pages of lucky are right for you. If you want something different then these Robert Clergerie at Saks Fifth Avenue are right for you.
These boots have the lovely points and straps which adds an edge to a classical pointed boot in camel.

I think you would love these boots since they are classic gray with slight studs. They also lace up.
For those who love glam try studs and crystal –

The millenium spin on these classic staples now come in an array of bold candy colors for the spring and summer.
Wear them with anything! I chose these amazing loafers by Dolce Vita for their vibrant lemon color and cute details.
The latest entry in our Spring shoe trend are wood platforms. These chunky heels are sexy, comfortable and are a throw back to the seventies! They go great with dresses and skirts and will take you from day to night without having to drag another pair of shoes with you, and you can wear them well into summer! I chose these two platforms because they look way more expensive then they cost so anyone can get the look without spending a lot. Also because the detail of the floral bow on the second platform is perfect for spring!
