Accessories Maketh the Woman by Annabel Tollman

Accessories Maketh the Woman:
Feel like you’re ready for a bit of a change but not a complete fashion do-over? It’s easy to make your whole wardrobe feel new again just by updating your accessories.  This fall, add accents like kitten heels, the top-handle granny bag or long leather gloves. Give your look a fresh spin with coveted accessories from top designers and brands all at amazing prices from eBay Fashion. 
·         The kitten heel is a great way to get a little lift and draw attention to a shapely ankle.
o   Back in the day, showing your slip was not very ladylike, but today embracing the visible lingerie look makes your look all your own.
o   Show off your waistline with a patent skinny belt.
o   Choose a pump with a pointy front, like these by Christian Louboutin, to elongate the leg.

·         Top handle frame bags were shown by designers on the runway for fall, but haven’t actually been used by anybody under the age of 80 for some time, which makes this an accessory ripe for vintage pickings.  
o   Top handle bag should be structured like this vintage one, and small to medium sized.
o   Mix with sporty pieces like a stripe-y t-shirt and a pair of skinny jeans by J. Crew.
o   Keep it basic – stay with neutrals but don’t get too match-y. You want to look like Grace Kelly or Audrey Hepburn.

·         Long leather gloves are the “do-everything” accessory.  They’re also a great fix for vintage coats with bracelet lengths sleeves. My personal favorite is to wear them with a chiffon dress to add a hard-edged twist.
o   Tuck in the sleeves of your shirt or sweater and wear these gloves by LaCraisa over the top.
o   Adding little touches, like a skinny belt over your jacket or a bright- colored sweater from H&M will bring your whole outfit together.
o   You don’t want your gloves to dominate your entire look – if they go past your elbows, just slouch them a bit.
So, think about accessories to spice up your wardrobe this fall. If you’re always out and about like me, check out the new eBay Fashion iPhone app. You can use the cool Closet feature to store and curate favorite fashion finds in one place. For more, go to visit fashion.ebay.com. Happy Shopping!

WHO’S NEXT and PREMIERE CLASSE January 2015

The date is set. The next edition of the WHO’S NEXT and PREMIERE CLASSE trade shows, will take place from Friday 22nd to Monday 25th January 2016 at Porte de Versailles.  In the midst of its extensive renovation work, the Paris Expo - Porte de Versailles is keeping its doors open for events. This ambitious modernisation project aims to strengthen the role that Paris holds as tourism market leader with regards to international business.  The first phase of the renovation concerns halls 1 and 7, the main entrance and the central walkway with the creation of travelators between hall 3 and 4.   In line with this situation, WHO’S NEXT and PREMIERE CLASSE are having to evolve and transform. The areas are being rethought, reworked, to offer a more fluid experience, a clearer display of the trade shows’ offer.  By joining forces with Studio GGSV (Curator of the Saint-Etienne Design Biennial 2013) the trade shows guarantee a quality setting and optimal space layout. The plan is se

Too Many Fashion Blogs

Is it possible that the world currently has too many fashion blogs? Obviously I understand that fashion is the most interesting subject matter in the universe, but why does everyone wish to blog about it. Although I have not yet completed an official count, I estimate approximately six zillion may be in existence. Here are a few reasons that may possibly contribute to the over population of style relevant blogs: Fashion blogs can make bloggers money (advertising, affiliate programs, etc). Fashion blogging is a creative process. Fashionistas are creative people; it makes sense that they enjoy writing. Fashion bloggers are tired of reading opinions from other people and wish to express their own opinion. Although it is embarrassing to admit, I contribute to several but do NOT derive much of an income for my efforts (yes, this is maybe because I do not write well…). Therefore, I do not think financial gain is the primary reason that the world has to

Fashion Goes in Cycles

They say that fashion goes in cycles.  What is in fashion this year will be out of fashion next year. However, clothing that may have been in style ten years ago, can potentially be next season smashing trend.  Due to the the cyclical nature of the apparel industry it is important for designers as well as consumers to monitor past styles as well as currently trending designs.  One way to do this would be to occasionally view old fashion articles in magazines, newspapers, websites, and obviously on blogs such as this one.
