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 match...so 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)

-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!
