Donna Karan- ICONS

Hola Chicas!

I just want to say that I really appreciate Donna Karan's ICONS collection because as basic and as classic as the pieces are, she's doing what hardly no one is doing right now. This collection is totally about pieces that are flattering, comfortable, and can be worn during everyday life. The collection is based on the seven pieces which the designer feels are essential to a woman's wardrobe. The body suit, wrap skirt, tailored skirt, cashmere knits, robe- like coat, evening wearing that can be worn during the day, and a tailored pant are the updated staples included in this collection. She's modernizing the pieces and designs that made her famous in the 80's. Prices range between $600 to $3000 and the pieces are available in upscale stores and Donna Karan boutiques late spring/ early summer. This collection is also being launched with her new perfume Gold.

This collection is completely out of my budget, but it's nice to see clothes being made that can be worn by the average woman. Here are a few of my favorite looks.

Hola Chicas!!

I saw this braid trend a lot last year on runways and television, but I could not find it in stores. It's still kinda hard to find. I think braiding is perfect for texture and detail in your clothes and it makes them look more expensive too. Here are pictures of Cameron Diaz, Elizabeth Berkley, and Petra Nemcova rocking the trend. Me gusta mucho!

Repeat Trend- Gladiator Sandals, Also Pockets

Hola Chicas,

Sorry folks, it's been a long week, so I'm giving you two trend posts and a product of the week.

The Gladiator Sandal is back! It's more feminine and wearable and less 'gladiator' than last year. Those strappy and combat looks are still out there, but we have more options this year.

Add ImageI had to post these. You can get them from Urban Outfitters. Ready for battle?

The beads on these 'temporarily out of stock' sandals from Old Navy add some femininity to the Gladiator look.
These sandals by Bebe were made in Italy, the home of the Gladiator Sandal.

I know. I know. We're seeing pockets everywhere. I think it's another cool detail to add to our everyday dresses, skirts, and other clothing items.

The product of the week is Goldie Nail Polish. My boss gave it to me as a Valentine's Day gift. I'd never heard of Goldie. It was a set of two polishes, a light pink and a dark pink. The polish was in curvy bottles with a little bow and a flower top. I actually didn't think much of it at first and I didn't use them for a while because I have my favorite brands and colors. I decided to switch it up one day and wear the dark pink. I got so many compliments the next day and everyone was asking me if I got my nails done professionally. The polish dried in a high- gloss finish and after applying my top coat, it was shining to the max! The polish stayed for a few days longer than a lot of the other brands that I use. This is some heavy duty stuff and it's sold at Bath And Body Works. I am very pleased.
