Fashion to Fit You

For some areas of the US… the weather is already cooling off and it’s time to bring out those cute and stylish fall coats.  If you are here in AZ you unfortunately will need to wait a bit longer… but you can still snatch up these fall coats in preparation (it usually doesn’t get cool enough for coats until closer to Halloween). I’ve found some cute fall coats all under $100!!

I found all these fall coats at ASOS, H&M, Zara and Forever21.

As you can see fall coats of all lengths are HOT this season as well as the more neutral brighter colors. Try something new this year! Click on the links below to find these items!

OK OK .. so Fall is here but Spring is trending on the runway with the past two weeks filled with style files from NYFW and now across the pond to London and Milan for their Spring trending shows.

So… for this womenswear wednesday I wanted to give you a heads up on the trends that you will see come next March and on. Most of the trends are fairly similar to what we saw this summer but with simple tweaks. Check them out:)

Spring Trending::

Neutral Monochromatic (simple and classic) Theres a definite variation with blazers, pantsuits and skirts.

Feminitity is IN.

Ball and full skirts! A new silhouette for the season

Stripes… in all directions…def can be very slimming 

Cut outs will replace crop tops (you heard it here first)

Of course, light or pastel colors will be in and floral never truly goes out of style in the warmer months. 

One great thing about Spring trends, is quite a bit of your closet can be re-used! No need to go out and purchase these new trends as you can easily rock the hottest looks of the season with a couple new items paired with what you have existing!

Make sure to stay tuned to find out how :)

Menswear Monday: Look what I found…

A Bit out of the Norm

I’m writing this piece below in response to a post I put up on my Facebook account this past Friday. As an avid sports fan, I have always loved the competition of games and watching stellar athletes go toe to toe. I’ve never been concerned with what players are doing off the field or their attitudes for that matter, all I really care about is watching a good game. Part of these games is the…

Special Feature Sunday: Misha Mendicino

The Altuzarra collection drops on Sunday (well very early morning Sunday). I can say though, my wish list is finally complete and I’m hoping to score these items before they sell out.  First, I’ll share with you the pieces that I am definitely hoping to grab and then I’ll share with you some tips I have used in the past to grab coveted items. Lastly, I’ll provide you with one of my previous posts that break down where you can purchase the different pieces and their prices!

First up!… My Wish List

 

When I buy things like this I try to think about practically if I would actually wear them and also given Arizona “winters” some of the thicker coat items (fur short coat) it doesn’t make any sense for me to buy that at $70 when I realistically would wear it maybe once. The trench is along the same lines at the fur coat, however given it’s neutral color and great price ($89.99!!) it’s worth to have in my closet and a great asset to have when I travel to places that have true winter weather.

TIPS

This release Target is doing things a little bit differently, they have parternered with Net-A-Porter.com to offer some of the items as well. This is where the astericks have come into play. All items noted with two** means they are only available at Net-A-Porter, while the items with * or *** will be available at physical stores or Target.com. Click here for the full details Altuzarra Collection Details .

1) USE SOCIAL MEDIA – for the Phillip Lim release I searched hashtags starting around midnight to find people who had found the product links ( keep in mind this is being released all over North America, since Pacific time is an hour behind us I would expect links to start rolling around 1230-1am Phoenix time)

2) Know what your must haves are and what you can live without and then prioritize.

3) Call your local Target to make sure they will be releasing the collection (not all locations will be offering the release).

4) Partner up! When going to a physical location sometimes it is easier when you have someone else go after certain items and you head to get the others.

5) If you don’t make it to the stores or sleep through the online release you can always check out ebay later that day as many people buy extra and are re-selling them. However, you may have to pay a bit more given some of these people up the price.

Feel free to follow my Twitter @Fashiontofityou as I will be retweeting the links as I find them!!

Happy Shopping:)

Stay Fashionable,
