Sad News!

I have really loved the few posts I made so far on this blog. However, it is a little stressful trying to get readers and comments, and plan material that will be interesting and unique.

I have a lot of important things in my life right now that need more attention than this blog. If I had more readers I might be inclined to continue, but I am not sure that it is worth it at this point.

So if you actually want me to keep writing blogs, please comment and let me know that. If enough people want me to continue, I will. And maybe I will return when my life is less stressful!

I hope you enjoyed the posts I made!

Trend - Tribal

Some of the most popular trends on recent runways are tribal prints. Below are some examples from from various shows. These dresses would be adorable from spring and summer.

I never thought I could like tribal prints so much! Here are a few more affordable tribal inspired pieces from Urban Outfitters (click the pictures for more information). There are lots of other stores carrying this trend, but UO is a pretty good example - they have a wide variety of clothes and accessories.

Would you wear this trend? What did you think of the runway looks?

Where to Buy it - Oxfords

I really need to find a nice pair of Oxford booties, so I thought I would share some with you. See the previous post for inspirational outfits.

Personally, I prefer heeled Oxfords because it is such a masculine style. The flat ones are a lot harder to pull off unless you are wearing something very feminine. Nonetheless, I am including flat and heeled shoes for different price ranges. Click any picture for a link to the store.

First of all, you can probably find the cheapest shoes at Forever 21 (excluding thrift stores). I think that these shoes are a little harsh looking, but you never know until you try them on. They start around $20.

Urban Outfitters has a great range of Oxfords - both flat and heeled. Here are some of my favorites. They start around $40.

And of course, the more money you are willing to spend, the broader range of styles and the finer the quality. Here are some Oxfords from Nordstrom. They start around $100.

I really love the stiletto heels and patent shoes. Which ones would you buy? If you know of any others, feel free to post!

Street Style - Oxfords

I love oxford booties, they can really spice up a simple outfit. I found a bunch of outfits with oxfords on Here are a few of my favorites.









I especially love the last pair!

A little later I will do a post on where to find them. After seeing these photographs, I really need a pair! They can easily be worn to class with a simple outfit, or added to a more dressy outfit for going out.

What do you think of them?

Runway - Zac Posen

On February 7, Zac Posen displayed his Fall 2008 Ready to Wear collection at Bryant Park. I just wanted to share a few of his trend-setting pieces with you. Posen's collection centered around menswear details, pops of color, and intricate evening gowns.

Menswear Details

Pops of Color

Evening Gowns

Menswear is definitely one of the most popular trends this season (see the Chloe and vests posts below). Posen has a very feminine and playful, yet dark take on this look. Pops of color, whether from tights or details, spice up simple outfits. Posen's evening gowns are amazingly diverse and original. He also incorporated sheer fabrics, revealing intricate layers below.
