One Item, Five Ways: Urban

I've just realized I never finished the one item five ways posts. So here's your next one:

Again, the red sweater

Red Baxter Sweater, anthropolgie

Add a fun bubble skirt...

Rachel Pally bubble skirt,

(and someone please tell the nordstrom stylists and tell them denim espadrille wedges do not go with black bubble skirts, please!)

And your downtown diva boots...

Slouchy Foldover Boot, UO

Whatever the stores are doing, it's still freezing and we need our scarves..

Cashmere scarf,

Chanel Lovin'

I know I haven't been posting; sorry. But I'm back with some Chanel...

Don't you feel like you wish you had access to all the outfits after seeing the HC shows?

First time I saw this I wasn't so sure. But the more I look at it, the more I like.

Lots of trends on this, but still very classy, very Chanel.

Note the lace; very Victorian, feminine, all trendy for spring.

The bow, it was huge on the FW shows, and on the latest catwalks too.

White everything. A little bit boring, but always classic. Uber trendy for spring.

I still can't get over how the lace and tulle go with the white go-go boots...

One item, Five Ways: Classy

Don't you love it when magazines tell you how to wear the same item like, six times?
But I think their combinations are usually ugly. So, I decided to make my own.

Therefore we start out with this absolutely gorgeous red sweater:

Baxter Pullover,

And add a gorgeous grey wide-leg pant:

Hepburn pant, Ya-ya

Since we don't want to be boring...

Black cashmere capelet, L.A.M.B.

Finish off with a little something

Citrine by the Stones necklace,

And here's your outfit du jour. Keep looking for new ones!

Palazzo Schmlazzo

Gauchos are so 2005.
2006 is now the year of the Palazzo, otherwise known as long gaucho pants.

Palazzos have been usually worn as yoga or loungewear, but they're starting to come out onto the streets. Acceptably, of course though.

This is a classic example of a trouser style, by Ya-ya. Ya-ya does the best kinds, in the best way. Don't you love how classic it looks, but still comfy? Of course, you can buy palazzos in a stretch knit, if you're really into the yoga look, but we all know yogawear is now reserved for yoga only right?

So trouser style it is.

Wear them with everything, sweaters, camis, blazers, tees, etc. My personal favourite look is a black palazzo, a red v-neck and a white/coloured cami. Top it with your ultra-chic jacket and you're a goddess.

Ciao, missc

And on to 2006...

Happy new year everyone!

Sorry about the posting hiatus, I was on holiday and didn't have a chance to post.
But back to the fab world of fashion.

My predictions on 2006 trends:

High, high heels. Platforms, stilettos, you got it. And preferably made in a colour like red patent leather.

Blouses. I'm glad this trend isn't going away. Something less frilly and lacy than for fall, more understated chic.

Higher waists. I still can't resign myself to ultra-high pants. Especially when I look at the ugly 80s patterns in sewing class. But super-low is just as bad, so I'm going to compromise and invest in wool and linen pants.

Belts in a popping out colour. Like pale green. Something that'll work with your jeans but make a fashion statement all the same. "I am stylish, hear me roar"

Neutrals. Brights are so 2005. Don't wear them in a matchy-matchy way though, something like a mulberry blouse, off-white linen pants and a green bag is good. Off-white and brown are not.
