I've been dying for the leather jackets at Burberry, as I posted about, however at that price point I'll be dying for them from afar. But then there it was in the window! A Burberry faux fur leather bomber jacket knockoff at Bebe! Of course I ran in there to try it on. As the salesguy helped me into it I peeked at the price - only $150! What?! It was gorgeous on, despite only having one button. I have to have this jacket now, but hold on... I took off the jacket and gross - faux fur is alllllll over my purple sweater. I yell "eeek what's this?" The salesguy says, "oh we have a lint brush". Um you really expect me to carry a lint brush around everytime I wear this jacket? How disappointing.
Burberry Prorsum Fall 2010 rtw is amazing. I officially cannot wait for Fall after seeing this collection. Everything in this collection is magnificent - the exposed-zipper dresses, pencil skirts, skinny trousers, over the knee boots, but I'm going to focus on the military and bomber jackets Christopher Bailey created. I mean how can a girl choose?! These jackets are to die for. They're stylish, warm, and sexy. He did them in black, brown, green, etc. Here are some of my favorites from style.com.
Now that the weather is consistently on good behavior, like a lot of us I love to wear dresses. Being tall and working in a conservative office makes shopping for work clothes, particularly dresses, a little challenging. Designers cannot seem to make dresses that do not reveal thighs and knees. However, I have found a few designers that cater to taller female shoppers: Elizabeth and James, A.L.C, Calvin Klein, Ports 1961 just to name a few. Finding this style at a lower price point has been very difficult though.
I'm obsessed with this skirt. I love the 10,000 colors it comes in. I love that you can pull it up to wear it as a high waisted mini, and I love that you can pull it down to wear it as a sexy pencil. Let me warn you though this skirt is very very fitted. I can see every indentation and bump on me in this skirt so wear it with confidence.
Alexander Wang has quickly become my new favorite designer. His unique looks are fabulous. I first took notice when every shoe that I gasped over in every fashion magazine I read was by Alexander Wang. That prompted me to seek out his clothing line. Gorgeous. Here are just a few of my favorite pieces from his ready-to-wear for Spring 2010. Proceed with caution if you're a little hippy attempting his bulky arm or strong shoulder look. Make sure the pairing bottom is super sleek and fitted.
A finance girl obsessed with fashion. I dream of owning a clothing boutique and dressing many women! My style is a little conservative and a little risky = beyond chic. I love modern, trendy, structured looks, and lots of color.
