2009 Spring Trend Report – Look #1


Depression Chic – Is it really possible to still look fab this Spring with all the talk about the doom and gloom of the economy? Most certainly! Spring brings blossoming flowers and hopefully overflowing Prada wallets!

Many people are feeling the affects of the economic downturn and it’s understandable to have a few bad hair days, a couple of strangely assembled day-ensembles and even one run to the corner bodega in your pajama pants (only if you’re really desperate). But when you actually sit back and think, what do you have to complain about?

Things are hard but life is still GOOD and your style should reflect that! Now is not the time to throw out your “fashion ideas notebook”! Yes, every fashionista worth her grain of salt should have one…So, spruce up and go out looking your best. Show the world your “Depression Chic” style. Burberry Prorsum (top left), Bottega Veneta (top right) and Marc by marc Jacobs have all captured the look… now, so can you!

Famiglia Fabulous


When Miucca Prada started Miu Miu in 1992, no one thought she could possibly top or even come close to comparing the new brand to her Italian megabrand – Prada. Despite obvious head scratching by fashion industries most notable trend analyst’s, she did just that.

Miu Miu is a favorite amongst many of Hollywood’s “cool girls”. Selma Blair, Kirsten Dunst and Maggie Gyllenhaal all proudly support the brand and starred in Miu Mui advertising campaigns. It seems that anything Ms. Miucca touches, turned to gold!

Brrrr...Who's Ready for Spring?



The recent teeth shattering cold temps on the East Coast makes Spring seem so far away. Meanwhile Fall 2009 fashions are already floating down the runways in Milan! (For a sneak peak check out (http://nymag.com/fashion/fashionshows/)

But for those of us who live for the warm weather that the Spring season brings, in addition to the flowing, forgiving fabric that can easily cover all the “hibernation pounds” you’ve packed on while hiding out in your cave all winter, my fav Spring fashion trend is oversized pattern bags with matching sundresses and Miss 60 put a perfect spin on it! On the way to the gym in a tireless effort to get your body beach ready for summer, pick up a few easy transition items that will ease you into that trendy, exotic Moraccan-inspired print bikini!

As one of the most historical Inauguration Ceremonies to date quickly approaches, fashion shows it support and certainly doesn’t miss a beat. Some of the fashion industries most celebrated designers have put their skills to work and produced a variety of Inaugural Collectibles that scream the message “It’s all about CHANGE”.
My personal favorites: the “Sheer Ladies T” ($45) by Zac Posen and the "Endless" scarf ($40) by Alexander Wang.
