This fall is all about  funky trends that I am absolutely loving. When it comes to fashion, I love experimenting, stepping out of the box, and trying new things – it’s all about having fun!

The heel-less plaform is fun, sexy, edgy, and HOT! I absolutely love it! All thanks to Lady Gaga for making us all go gaga over these shoes. Lady Gaga was audacious enough to first step out in a pair. They may seem impossible to walk in, but I recently invested in a pair myself and they have proven to be quite easy, especially if you are used to strutting around in 5in heels.

Here are some great finds for less:

leather heel-less peep-toe platforms

Leather Heel-less Peep Toe Platforms – $42

spiked heel-less platforms

Spiked Heel-less Platforms – $68

Lace Up Platform – $195 

2. Studded Pointed Pumps

Rock out this season in pointed pumps covered in studs. The spiked and studded trend isn’t a complete newbie, but it definitely is making a statement this fall. It adds the right amount of edge and fierceness to your look. My favorite is a pair of pointed black pumps with gold studs/spikes all over. They are definitely my go to pair for this fall!

This is the pair I have from Steve Madden and they are on sale now! – $89.98

Studded Pumps with Ankle Straps – $99

Galactic Studded Court Heels – $120

3. Studded Leather Gloves

I’ve always loved gloves. A few years back I styled gloves with almost all my fall outfits. A little obsessed, I know. But now they’re making a come back with a chic and edgy twist. Once again we are seeing studs take over. Studded leather gloves are the perfect accessory to your fall outfit. Not only do they keep your fingers cozy, but they always vamp up your look. Perhaps bring out our inner Michael Jacksons as well?

Here are some pocket friendly finds:

TOUCH - Studded leather gloves

Touch Studded leather Gloves – $79.99

River Island Black Leather Studded Glove – $48

4. Wedge Sneakers

I must admit, I’m really not a sneakers kind of gal. Anything with a 5in heel is my best friend. However, I am really liking the revamped sneaker – it’s comfortable and casual, yet stylishly sexy with its hidden wedge heel. This fall is all about comfort combined with chicness, and what better way to update your closet than by adding this piece to it. You can pair these sneakers with skirts, skinny jeans, shorts, leggings and more! The options are endless!

Here are some great finds:

Studded Black Wedge Sneaker – $99.90 

Isa Wedge Sneaker

Isa Wedge Sneaker – $295

Bowie Suede Wedge Sneakers – $195

NYFW Spring 2013 Trend Spotting!

As we prepare ourselves for the onset of fall furs and peacoats, New York Fashion Week has already started gearing us towards Spring 2013. The runways proved to be nothing short of amazing, and there were some definite trends making major headlines. Here’s a look at some of my favorite Spring trends that are a must have for next season! Take some notes ladies, and start vamping up your spring closets from now to get yourself ahead of the game!

1. Spring 2013 Color Palette:

Absolutely love the juxtaposition of bold hues with neutral shades as it provides for a harmonious combination. The Spring 2013 color palette has a little something for everyone. The runways were filled with vibrancy and versatile looks created by fabulous color combinations.

2. Patriotic Colors and Combos:

Red, White, and Blue were all over the Spring runways. Whether these hues solely graced the runway, or whether they were combined, the trio of colors was pure perfection. I absolutely love this bold and chic amalgamation of colors.

3. STRIPES

From skinny, to wide, to geometric and MORE! Stripes were everywhere to be seen for Spring 2013. I especially love it on the Tommy Hilfiger sleek one piece swimsuit. The stripes trend gives a sense of imprisonment behind bars with a chic fashion twist!

4. PRINTS GALORE:

Floral and Digital prints were huge on the Spring runways. These sundry prints were bright and bold. Rodarte’s use of prints was especially appetizing as multiple vibrant prints were used to create a powerful ensemble.

5. Slouchy Chic

Wide-legged pants, harem pants, and loose caftans were spotted in various designer collections. DVF’s take on this slouchy chic trend was the best of the lot. Her use of color and detailing completely updated these 70s silhouettes with a modern twist.

6. Romantic Lace

 Lace is back ladies! Whether it was black lace or colored, the looks were both romantic and edgy. Designers sparingly worked lace in to their pieces in order to spice up their looks. Jason Wu’s lace insets were particularly eye-catching and sexy!

7. Gladiator Inspired Shoes:

All I can say is HOT, and I WANT THEM NOW! Absolutely love the return of gladiator style shoes. These knee grazing pieces are edgy, dramatic, and daring, and they completely transform your look. Make sure to get your hands on a pair before next Spring!

8. Pointed Pumps:

The pointer the hotter! The pointed pump trend has started to pick up again for Fall, and now we’re are seeing it for Spring as well. The sharper the point, the more elongated and slender your legs look. Designers have now revamped the pointed pump by adding ankle straps, contrasting colored tips, and fancy detailing for an edgier appeal. LOVE!

Start working some of these trends in to your looks now!

Which trend is your favorite?
