Fall Trends 2010: Chunky Knits

The overcast weather here in L.A. really has me thinking about fall more than ever. So, I couldn’t help but post this trend. The chunky knit is not only a trend for fall/winter of 2010 but, it is always a trend every year. Who doesn’t like to look fabulous while keeping warm? For me it’s a given! I love cable knit sweaters!! I actually have two in my closet from last season, I can’t wait to wear. I am also on the hunt for a chunky knit beret. Will fall just hurry up and get here already!

Faux Fur? Yes or No?

Do you wear faux/fake fur? Faux fur is made from synthetic materials and not our furry friends. I’ve never worn the real stuff and I think I have one puffy vest with a faux fur trimmed hood. But that’s it. Even Chanel has gotten in on the faux fur trend for fall/winter. I’ve kind of had my eye on boots with the faux fur trim, but that’s still debatable because it doesn’t get that cold in L.A. What do you think?

Are you a faux fur kind of girl?

I’m in Shoe Heaven…

Like Rachel Zoe would say…”I die!”

Seriously, I’m in shoe heaven. I am speechless. All I know is that I WANT these Christian Louboutin brown suede platform pumps. The End.

Fall Trends 2010: The ‘Moto’ Jacket

Bring out the bad girl this fall! Grab your leather or faux leather motorcycle jacket! I know some of you are animal friendly, besides faux leather is a lot more inexpensive. Does that still make you a bad girl? Sure! At least you’ll be a HOT looking bad girl!

OK, enough with the bad girl talk, because I really want a motorcycle (A.K.A. a “moto”) jacket. I imagine it as an essential piece to any wardrobe, kind of like a black blazer. It can be worn so many ways, with so many different pieces. That’s what it’s all about right? Getting more bang for your buck. I think I might just head over to Forever 21 tomorrow.

Which one is your favorite?

Fall Trends 2010: Cascading Knits, Vests, & Jackets

I know the sun is blazing here in L.A., but I am still day dreaming about fall trends! We have seen this cascading trend already, but I don’t see it going anywhere just yet. This time it has hit our knits and jackets for the upcoming season. They are so easy to pair with your favorite tanks or tees. And it’s the perfect “go to” look with a pair of booties and jeggings. It definitely gives us that layered look we all love. I think I want them all! Why does that always happen?

Which ones are you loving?

My Favorite Fall Trend: Gray Suede

One fall trend I am looking forward to wearing is any bag or shoe in gray suede. I’ve had my eye on this trend for a really long time. I love this look and I am currently on the hunt for a few items. I’d love to pair it with an all-black outfit. I can’t wait for this heat wave to be over! L.A. needs to cool down! I need fall weather here A.S.A.P!

Fall Trends 2010: Buckles

I know you’re probably still melting from this summer heat, but I am already thinking about fall trends! I can’t help it. It’s definitely one of my favorite seasons. And you know I’m a shoe lover, so it’s only fitting that the first fall trend will be shoes! Shoes with buckles that is. I’ve already got my eye on a few pairs below. I’m in love with the Juicy Couture ‘Dale’ wedge booties in the gray suede. My heart just skipped a beat.

By clicking on any of the yummy images below, you agree to start thinking about fall.

Which pair is your favorite?

Fruit of the Loom’s “Fit for Me” Collection

As I was flipping through one of my magazines, I came across the ad below from Fruit of the Loom’s “Fit for Me” collection. First of all, I am loving these curvaliscious models! Aren’t they beautiful? Secondly, YAY! for cotton undies made for curvy gals! I know I might sound a tad excited, but I love a simple and comfy cotton undie. I haven’t tried these, but I promise you I will. And when I do, I will write a full review for you!

According to their web site they are available in sizes 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, and 14. Which is equivalent to dress sizes 16W, 18W, 20W, 22W, 24W, and 26W. And they come in different colors and patterns.

Has any one out there tried these yet? Dying to know.
