Trendy Tuesdays

I hope everyone is having a great start to the week! I don't know about you, but personally I think Tuesdays are much worse than Mondays. Every Monday I can wake up with not too much of an issue, as it's a brand new week, but Tuesdays are always my downfall. I come to realize it's not even halfway through the week, and just how much stuff is to be done.

Today's trend is largely inspired by feminine dresses. This trend can be seen everywhere, as dresses are growing less short and more modest. I like to think of this trend à la Kate Middleton. Kate's great outfits are conservative, yet gorgeous and still show her off in the right places. A cinched waist, reserved neckline, and just-above-the-knee hemline are key factors in her outfits she wears to formal events.

More and more designers are taking a cue from Kate and creating gorgeous pieces for us everyday folks, making us look as elegant as the Duchess herself.

Erdem Firecracker Print Ashley Dress - $910 - Saks.com

Jason Wu Printed Dress - $1995 - Saks.com

Moschino Cheap and Chic Polka Dot Jersey Dress - $695 - Saks.com

Peter Som Floral Stretch Silk Dress - $1150 - Saks.com

Valentino Pindot and Lace Dress - $2690 - Saks.com
Personally, I love this trend and hope that it will stay for a long time. No offense to those who love to wear dresses that barely cover anything, I think a look like this is much more classier and memorable. Out of all of these dresses, I think my favorite would have to be either the Valentino or Peter Som. Both are so gorgeous! Which is your favorite? Let me know!

Mulberry Fall 2011

I hope everyone is having a great long weekend, Happy Labor Day! I thought today I'd post my favorite campaign for this fall, Mulberry. Mulberry was my favorite runway show back in February, I loved everything about it - the colors, the models, the designs, just every aspect! So I was more than pleased when I saw the first ad for this collection, and then the video ad. I hope you all love it as much as I do!
