Happy New Year~

New years come and new years go,
Pieces of time all in a row.
As we live our life, each second and minute,
We know we’re privileged to have you in it.
Our appreciation never ends
For our greatest blessings: our family and friends.
Happy New Year!
By Joanna Fuchs

~Wishing all of you the most wonderful and fabulous New Year~
Celebrate with Style, Grace and Class!

The Direct Wrap Up with Devon Scott

"Socks and Stillettos?"
Remember the days when you'd silently (I hope) make fun of the old guy rocking the socks and sandals (the socks usually being black)?
Those days are gone - the trend from a couple years ago is back. Socks and heels.
They popped up on the runway and then in respected fashion magazines across the world over the last few months, taking a cue from the private-school-girl-meets-sex-kitten page. Think Cher in "Clueless" circa 1995.
Knee socks have been a favorite of mine for years (I skated roller derby...knee socks are essentials for shin protection). In the winter, I sometimes pair some cute capris with striped socks and platform heels. I promise people will not look at you strange - they'll be envious of your fashion-forwardness (is that a word? oh well it is now). They can add color when you're feeling gray and black.
My favorite place to buy socks is These peacock pattern knee socks made my mouth water (they're reasonably priced as well - $9).
As for the shoes, I'd put on some bright socks and rock these Alejandro Ingelmo "Sophia" platforms ( - $216).
More daring trends to come to kick off 2011 - happy shopping!
XOXO ~ Devon

The Direct Wrap Up with Devon Scott ~

It's cold out. Yesterday, it was something like 12 degrees when I drove back home from Iowa (bestie's parents live south of the Quad Cities). Cold, bright, and weird-looking in general. It's also one of the coldest winters in history for parts of Europe.
One way designers are keeping us warm (yet chic) this winter is the turtleneck. But, it's not the "underneath the ugly sweater" version many of us recall from childhood.
Turtlenecks these days seem to be shooting toward accentuating one's curves, while keeping us from freezing to death. Case in point, this gorgeous YSL ribbed turtleneck. It's sleek and draws the eye to, well, what God hath given us ladies.
Pair with skinny jeans or capris (in the winter you can do capris with boots - looks very cool) and don't forget your coat!
XOXO - Devon

My Fashion Wishes for 2011~
With the holiday right around the corner and the year coming to an end, I felt it time to list off what trends I'm hoping for next year, both what I hope become trends, what stays around, and what I hope (to God and all that's holy) goes AWAY.
In a fashion world run by Devon...
-More glitter/statement-wear: Sequins, glitter - they were everywhere this past year. Please keep doing that! I always get frownie when I spot some gal in the club in basic black or (worse) white. No! Not acceptable! Leave your tennis shoes and t-shirts at home! (labels to watch: Arden B, BCBG Max Azria, Calvin Klein).
-Big purses shrinking: Ladies, yes, I admit I keep a certain amount of stuff in my handbag (wallet, keys, ipod, stereo front, Blackberry, chapstick, pen, etc). But, we do NOT need to be carrying what amounts to a glorified suitcase around with us! (exception: diaper bags for Moms on the go are perfectly acceptable) (labels to watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs, Tory Burch, Juicy Couture)
-Matching outfits: Maybe this is a Midwestern thing. Maybe this is a bad sense of personal style. If I see one more couple coming out to functions (an NFL game or other professional sporting event being the exception - support your team) dressed ALIKE, I will take my Harajuku Girl studded bracelet and stab someone in the eye! Come on - we're all individuals! How hard is it to dress yourself? (labels to watch: YOUR OWN CLOSET)
-Go big or go home: Oh designers, keep making those big necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. To quote my old roommate, "I don't care if it's real" (note - it helps, but not necessary) "I just want it to be real big!" I love seeing several necklaces adorning an outfit and if they don't what? It's fun and something a little quirky! Also, if a ring is so big you could potentially see it from space, well who doesn't love that??? (labels to watch: Alexander McQueen, Burberry Prorsum, and Kate Spade)
Kate Spade "Pave the Way" Ring
-Camels go back to the desert: I know the "camel" color is all the rage, but I find it so drab. Please go back to the Sahara and leave us fashionistas who like bright colors alone!
On that note, thank you for indulging me and my musings on the art of fashion this past year and I look forwarding to "wrapping up" and "dressing down" with you all next year!
