Fall Trend

I know, I know! Summer is here, so why are we writing about fall? Because if you are a true fashion slave you know the seasons are always ahead. Hemlines gives you a sneak peek at the hautest fall trend. The little sequined dress! Don't think old lady when you hear sequined dress, think color, modernity and edgy. My two favorites on the runway are from the French House of Balmain. You can wear them with tights or without. Disco fall nights await!
Haute Fact: Rihanna is known to rock Balmain Jackets!

Spice up your Summer

Fellas, Summer doesn't mean just shorts and jeans. Add some Khakis to your wardrobe. They can be worn with a button down, polo style shirt, or a v-neck white tee. Put on some leather flip flops, and you are ready for warm Summer fun.

Haute Denim

Why pay over $100 for jeans? NOT! Haute denim find is from one of my favorite online catalogs: I'm feelin' the Revolt Love Destroyed jean retailed at $41.50, and the Vigoss Stretch Patchwork jean $39.50. What a deal! One of the main reasons I order from Alloy is they offer extended inseams and sizes. For all the 6 foota stallions out there they go up to 37 inseam, so you have room to rock your heels. As The Dream would say "She Rockin That Thang Like."
