Online Shopping And The Buyer Experience

I do 80% of my shopping online. I can't help it, it's too convenient. Why drive through traffic, search for sizes, and wait in lines when you can sit in your pajamas and click? With the Internet becoming such an integral part of our way of life, retail stores are creating websites and innovating the "online shopping" experience more and more by the second. It also challenges designers to make sure that their clothing has "online" appeal.

The Speed Of Fashion: Who's To Blame?

As always, on Sunday, I have to bring you guys the coolest fashion article I've read today. A section of the New York Times called T Magazine posted an article on the speed of fashion and why it's broken.

 "The fashion industry is broken in more ways than one: runway shows don’t match retail expectations; designers can’t keep up with demand; and customers can’t buy a coat in winter. So who’s to blame?"

Not Food Trucks, Fashion Trucks!

We as consumers like fast and convenient. We have created a market for it and the retail world never stops delivering it to us. Whether it be on the web or the simple concept of a food truck, the retail world has made leaps and bounds to provide "at your door step" service. Now, it looks like fashion (and marketing) geniuses have taken the concept of both and fused them together = Fashion Trucks.

Getting A Jump Start On Fall Fashion

My Love For Leopard Print!

To me, leopard print isn't even a real "print", it's just an accessory color. If done right, leopard can go with anything.... Did you hear me? ANYTHING! Don't believe me? Keep reading...



I am a firm believer of leopard print being an accent or accessory piece. I very rarely see leopard dresses that I like, and that's OK. My love for leopard still runs deep. However, when I do find those special tokens of love, I swoon.


I mean, come on. How can you not love that?!

If you don't, it's OK. I'm going to make you a believer! Now, I'm not one to mix prints; however, as I stated before, leopard is a non-print. You can add it to any print you've already got going, especially stripes! 


See what I mean? Perfect accent! Also, let me just say that if you do not have a leopard scarf in your closet somewhere, you are really missing out on a gem of an accessory. The leopard scarf is like a gold bracelet, you can throw it on with anything! Pair it with some (tasteful) leopard heels and you are ready to tackle the concrete jungle!

If you wanna use leopard print for a core part of your outfit, keep the other parts solid. The leopard will actually make the rest of your outfit pop, not the other way around. 



There is literally hundreds of ways you can accessorize leopard print and be casual and comfortable!


Not a huge fan still? Man, you're a hard sell. Well, I can understand. You may not like the boldness of the print. Not to worry! Nowadays you can still rock leopard with the bold print. A trend that's been a round for a while is now muted leopard print items. You still get the outline of the print, but it's not as bold and usually in the same color as the background color.


One of my favorite little black dresses is a muted leopard print!

(This was me at 2010 Full Figure Fashion Week in Los Angeles)

Well, I hope I've converted you over to the land of the leopard! And if not, this will surely do the trick!


It's leopard cake!!!!!!!

Be Smart With Your Strut!

OK ladies, we all have them. That pair of heels you just could NOT pass up. They sit in the back of you closet mocking you because you can't walk in them. Well, not to fear! I found a GREAT video to help you perfect your walk and feel confident in those 5 inch stilettos! Check this out!

Makes perfect sense, right?

So how do you feel after watching that? I've been wearing 5 inchers for years and learned something new by watching this.

Now, you don't have to rock the mile high heels to use this info either! Practice in your 2 and 3 inch heels first, or you can stop there. This video is to help you feel more confident in wearing your heels properly. You don't want to end up like this, right?

I didn't think so.
So break out those heels and strut your stuff!
