Spring ’11 TREND: The Return of FLARE jeans & WIDE LEG trousers!

(Left to Right: Derek Lam, Adam, Emilio Pucci)

 Although flare jeans never OFFICIALLY went out of style they did take a back seat to the ever popular skinnies! However spring ’11 changed all of that as the runways were flooded with flare & high waist wide leg trousers.  I’ve never been afraid of a little flare! So, I personally LOVE this trend.

 I’m also in LOVE with the wide leg pant! With the right fit, the look is so SASSY to me!
Just look at the open denim shirt with the wide leg khakis? HOTT, right!?

& now that we are getting so close to spring, the runway trend has FINALLY made its way into all of the mainstream department stores where all the mannequins have been styled with the latest 70’s flare! I actually still have a few distressed flare jeans & linen wide legs in my closet that I’ve never stopped rocking…..They’re actually my favorite! Although, I don’t do anything with a high waste because it doesn’t flatter my tush. But that’s just me, it may work for you 🙂

Are you excited to dust off your flares & start rocking them again?

Kimora Lee Simmon’s Closet Confession!

I had this idea a while ago to go into some of my favorite celebrities & bloggers’ homes & have them give me an exclusive tour through their closets to see what prizes & possessions they have in it! Unfortunately Bluefly.com beat me to the punch. It’s still a great idea nonetheless! & their latest feature was my BELOVED,  Idealist Kimora Lee Simmons!

Check out Kimora’s “Closet Confession” BELOW:

She said this closet is a small satellite version of the mothership closet, but with the Chanel cocoon bags, custom designed Manolos, & diamond encrusted hour glass- I’d take this “smaller” closet any day! & I’m still not giving up on the idea of doing my own closet confessions. They need a correspondent to go in with the celeb to get them to chat & make the experience more FUN! The celebrity is on their own turf so they’re vulnerable &  it makes them more comfortable opening up to you. The point is to get them to let their hair down so to speak. So, hopefully Bluefly will give me the opportunity to do just that. Just putting it out in the universe…..

These Vera Wang Booties KICK A*%!!!

I don’t know about you guys but when I think Vera Wang I automatically think WEDDING!! That was until I spotted these lethal weapons in Nordstrom this evening!

Idealists meet BUFFY!  

Apparently there’s a hard edge to Vera besides the usual soft fairy tale GAWGEOUS gowns we’re accustomed to.The Buffy bootie is from Vera’s Lavender runway ready to wear line! Isn’t she Hott? & they look even HOTTER when you actually try them on! TRUST ME! Unfortunately, I couldn’t walk a straight line in them so I ended up buying some other shoes but I couldn’t stop thinking about her so I thought I’d share. Even though I saw these in the Nordstrom store, the only place I found it online was at neimanmarcus.com. She retails for $425 & for whoever can walk in them, I think they’re well worth it! Even if you can’t walk in them, I would still buy them anyways. I may just go back & get them myself…. Walking is so overrated these days anyways!
& Before you go…..
Check out the rest of Vera Wang’s Lavender s/s ’11 collection below!

I really liked this collection. The contrast of the shoes with the soft feminine clothes caught my attention. I’ve got my eye on you Vera….

SOUND OFF! Adele’s Rolling In the Deep!

I saw singer Adele’s video for “Rolling In the Deep” for the first time on Vh1 last week. I had never heard the song before but I LOVED it & ever since then I can’t seem to get it out of my freaking head! lol I have been a fan of hers since she first came out. I like this kind of old soul style of music like her and Amy Winehouse. Both artists are sick with the pen too. Anyways, back to Adele, Rolling In the Deep is a single off her sophmore album “21”. & since I find myself randomly humming it, I thought i’d share and have it stuck in your head too!

The girl’s voice is AMAZING! I can’t believe she’s only 22! Pick up your copy of “21” available February 22nd!
