 EMILIO PUCCI & DIANE VON FURSTENBERG's FALL 2011 COLLECTION 

all styles of monochrome are popping up everywhere right now, from the streets to the runways, the fashion gods have done it again.  our favorite stores, designers, and even celebrities are already embracing one of fall's hottest trends, and it is personally one of my favorites right now.  the combination of simple, yet eye-catching combinations of pieces from all the same color spectrum absolutely infatuates me.  you can layer a mixture of slouchy pieces of different textures for a soft look, or go strong with super tailored pieces, like the DVF above.  design geniuses including Yves Saint Laurent, Gucci, Michael Kors, and Tory Burch have all included the look in their fall collections, and I cant wait to add some great pieces to my own collection.

{How To} day to night in a dress

day.
to night...
i am typically very avid about wearing something only once, but this dress allowed for multiple uses.  and thank god because it is one of my favorite dresses and i would wear it everyday if that kind of thing was acceptable.

back to school



it was a fun idea to take a stroll down memory lane and visit my old high school.  my boyfriend and i explored while i reminisced about the good 'ol days, when the most stressful situations in my life consisted of deciding what to put on in the morning. and when if i wanted to be excused from life for the day, all i needed was a note from my mom. oh, to be young again...
 
 
 
so this dress is suppose to criss-cross in the back, but if you skip a step while putting it on, it comes out like this.  i enjoy the personality the criss-cross brings to the front of the dress, and then the bareness it leaves in the back. there's nothing more sexy to me than a bare back.
 
 
i love a form fitting top half and then a bottom half that flows. this is very flattering if your on the shorter side, like myself.
