Selena Gomez Signs $1o Million Fashion Designing Deal???

Selena Gomez is returning to the spotlight slowly and steadily. As you may know she made a big win at the American Music Awards. She recently started posting again on Instagram showing her chic street style. Now we may be seeing her as the next face of coach. It was reported that on December 13th 2016, she signed a $10 million deal with the American luxury label. The contract that she signed would make Selena the face of Coach. She will be expected to star in ad campaigns, possibly even her own line for the brand. This might explain why she was recently spotted wearing a Coach graphic tee and holding a Coach bag last week.

Earlier this year, Selena was announced as the face of Louis Vuitton and starred in her first fashion campaign in  the brands series in June. She has hbz-selena-gomez-1205also been spotted front row at its shows in Paris and the Met Gala in May. Now since she’s teamed up with the French brand we can’t wait to see what she’ll bring to the American heritage label, which recently celebrated its 75th anniversary. If her designs turn out anything like her personal style, then we’ll be in luck!! ~BB

2016, predictions vs reality

Elle magazine posted an article on January 20th, 2016 talking about nine upcoming trends expected for 2016-but how many of these actually happened? While Elle has yet to post what they believe to be the biggest trends of 2016, Harper’s Bazaar recently posted an article about what they thought the 15 biggest fashion trends of 2016 were. The Elle article predicted navy colors, leopard print, tiered layers, sheer black, large florals, bold shoulders, kelly green, butterfly accents, and shearling coats. According to Harper’s Bazaar not a single one of these was one of the “biggest” trends of 2016. While we certainly saw a decent amount of some of these predicted trends, I agree that they weren’t exactly the biggest trends. A few of the Harper’s Bazaar’s biggest trends actually directly contrast the predicted ones. For example a prediction was bold shoulders, but off-the-shoulder shirts ended up being a bigger trend. Another prediction was tiered layers, especially in dresses, but we ended up seeing slip dresses take off more instead; which are much more simple than tiered layered dresses. So what was the biggest trend of 2016? I think most people will agree that if there was one trend that really just took off, it was chokers. I guess we will see if 2017’s trend projections are more accurate than 2016’s were in another year!

The multi-layered skirt is about to become a mainstay in our closets. Gucci's ongoing style of decadent kitsch is pioneering the look in pastel and pleats, giving this trend lush texture.

Voluminous shapes continue to reign supreme, this time focusing on the shoulders. J.W. Anderson, Ellery, Opening Ceremony, and Valentino all had standout pieces featuring this trend.

Holiday Sweaters: the Uglier, the Better

As Christmas is approaching, a fashion-must is a tacky holiday sweater. Many prefer to purchase their sweaters from secondhand stores while some create their own. No matter which method is chosen, the overall rule is still the same: the uglier, the better. During the other 11 months of the year, fashionistas such as ourselves live by organized wardrobes with meticulously matching outfits. December is the only month of the year that our inner five-year-old can roam free and explode all over our daily threads. So feel free to go overboard with the holiday spirit! Add those fuzzy Santa socks and pull out that candy cane necklace. Your mood will skyrocket and you’ll thank me later.
