Fall/Winter 2011 Fashion Trend: Orange/Rust

I thought I'd kick off my summary of this fall/winter's hottest trends with one of the season's trendiest colors:  orange (or rust).  This color was heavily featured in many designer collections on the AW2011 runways (Below: Gucci; Blumarine; Bottega Veneta; Derek Lam).  Admittedly, orange can be a tricky color to pull off.  I have a bright orange Milly blazer that I absolutely adore, but I constantly struggle with what to pair it with.  Because it is such a statement color, I usually stick with a khaki or tan dress or skirt for work and dark jeans and white top when I wear it casually.  If you are feeling particularly bold, however, try wearing orange all over like the looks pictured below for a monochromatic look!   

If you want to update your autumn wardrobe with something orange, below are some options to consider:  ASOS mini pussybow shirt dress for $64.03 on; Bow tie chiffon blouse for $17.80 on; Flounced pintuck parka for $198 on; Isairis dress for $38 on; Puff sleeve pullover for $59.50 on; Kasil "Artisan" pleated trousers for $165 on; Sanctuary "Jane" dress for $158 on; "Nicoleta" blouse for $88 on; High low skirt for $14.80 on; Double knit dress for $15.80 on; Cable knit v-neck sweater for $69.50 on; ASOS ponti pencil dress for $82.33 on

Raid My Closet: End-of-the-Summer Purchases

I've purchased a few things during the end-of-summer sales that have been popping up lately so I thought I'd go ahead and show you all what I got. I've saved my autumn/winter purchases for a different post. All of these items were purchased at major discounts and I'm pretty pleased with everything!  First, I recently picked up the above straw hat by French Connection from (originally $63.78) to replace one that I ripped while on vacation in Las Vegas. I also recently bought the above necklace on by Sachin + Babi which I absolutely LOVE. It is an amazing statement necklace and I really like that brand's jewelry although I have noticed that a few beads have fallen off already. I purchased the above blush blazer from (originally $62) and the floral dress by Rachel Rachel Roy from Macy's (originally $119) to wear at a work function over the summer -- the Rachel Roy for Macy's line is fantastic, so if you haven't checked it out yet, I recommend that you do!

Style Muse: Mila Kuniz

I have had a major girl crush on Mila Kuniz ever since her "That 70s Show" days, but I haven't really been a fan of her fashion until recently. It wasn't that I didn't like the way that she dressed previously, but it just seemed very "blah" and uninspired. All that seems to have changed though cause Mila really seems to have stepped up her diva factor ever since "Black Swan" came out. And she has been looking great making her rounds lately promoting her "Friends with Benefits" movie. I like how she can go from sexy vixen, to girly, to classic, to edgy. I'm excited to see what she wears next!
