The Seventies Sequins

16 06 2008

Remember the days when Rachel Bilson would go to a premiere and be praised for her black sequinned mini-dress. If she went the to the premiere of shall we say, Wanted, now she would be ridiculed. Mutterings of, “So boring,” “Unoriginal,” or worst of all and the most cliche of all, “That is so last year,” would be heard. Since those sort of dresses are still coveted by tacky people in the valley when they see it on the racks at Express, I have decided to put together a list of a different kind of a sequin dress, MULTI-COLORED AND PATTERNED. I know, I’m crazy. We’ll see about that.

  • 3. Emilio Pucci Paillette Tank Dress $2,673: This dress may be small, but the different gold hues can put all eyes on you in a crowded room.

  • 4. Fendi Miniature Paillette Beaded Dress $1,860: This piece by Fendi has two trends, different colored sequins and geometric patterns. Both of these are a blast from the past.

  • 5. Jay Ahr Floral Metallic Dress $1,308: This silver and white sequinned number offsets a night of clubbing with the girly print, so you don’t look too much like a naughty girl

Homage to Ombre.

26 05 2008

Everyone knows that ombre is the trend of the season, and the season after that, and so on. It never goes away. And I’m okay with that because it is probably one of the most versatile prints ever. Have fun checking out these pics.

  • Behnaz Sarafpour Ombre Silk Dress – $1250: This dress’s cream color accents any skin tone, especially golden ones. It’s great for a night out or for work with a tailored blazer.

  • Rebecca Taylor Chiffon Ombre Dress – $345: This dress has a romantic touch a it switches from pure snow white to lilac.

  • Prada Ombre Patent Pochette – $175/month: This cream to pink clutch is a girly classic and is great for a night on the town.

Shop Bop Deems Fall “Bright”

30 07 2007

I know this trend has been going on for so long (even I got myself a pair of royal purple skinny jeans), but I didn’t want to write about it until I knew for sure that all the designers were on board. And now I am totally sure that they are, because you should have seen the selection of “hurt-my-eyes” yellow and red and blue pieces by Marc Jacobs and Rachel Pally. Just remember, only make one piece bright hued because more than one will be over powering and you will look like a neon alien freak.

1. Rachel Pally Seamed Swing Dress

2. Vita Milano Bracelet

3. Fragment Lucite Earrings

4. Seven Jeans Side Zip Joyce Jean

5. Rich & Skinny Racy Shorts
