Help Fashion Buy Local


As you may all know many fashion houses are closing due to the economic situation we are encountering. And I know we all want Prada to delight our eyes, DVF to make our fantasies come true, Balmain to guide us to the future, and Chanel to remember us how classy we can be. So if you want to support this economy try to buy local, check the label of your dress to see if it was produce in the U.S., I know we are not quitting to forever 21 but let's at least try to spend a little more in an item that is going to last longer and wow everyone. Like in Europe they may buy two suits from Balenciaga per season but they are going to use that suit with every accessory that they have, and combine with different pants of jackets, its just about being creative.
I wish you all a happy Wednesday :), and may fashion live forever.

Fashion Internships

PhotobucketHello fabulous people,

Thank you very much to all my readers for your emails and super extra nice comments. Today I wore this outfit to school since I have to dress a little bit more professionally for classes because I am on an intern block (2 months of classes everyday and 2 months of an internship in retail industry). Honestly, I haven't find an internship yet but I have some interviews in NY which I am really excited! And I just want to share some websites for people interested in Fashion or Retail Related internships...
In my opinion the best websites are:
1. Freefashioninternships.com
2. WWD Careers
3. Ed.com (Mostly for magazines)
4. StyleCareers.com (Select Intern/Entry Level)
5. And if you have one company in your mind just enter directly to their website and find the career opportunities they offer.

FUN FACT: Do you know that the best retail companies to work for are Target and Loreal? I never imagine target but it was published in the Wall Street Journal a few days ago.

C. MATERIAL/FABRICATION FORECAST

- Since the eco look is one that is rising in the juniors family of business the use of natural fabrics is popular. Other finishes, such as wrinkle, crinkle, bleach, destroyed, washout, and jacquards fabrics are very prevalent for the Spring/Summer 2010 season.

- Since the style focus on nature some yarns like cotton, linen, hemp, bamboo, silk and mixtures, vintage optics. But the more demanding yarns are linen, hemp and bamboo.

- Most of the designs used on fabrics include ethnic stripes since multi-ethnic look is very common on this season too. Other designs such as linen checks and stripes, patchwork checks, tribal afro-graphics, herringbone, bleached floral prints, wax motifs, organic and painted motifs are wide used too for this time of the year.

The big bows are from Diane Von Furstenberg and the Fab Bunny Ears are from Louis Vouitton.

So which trend are your definitely going to wear?

Perfume Bottle Shirt

I got this shirt of a perfume bottle at forever 21, I love it because its extra big and you can use it whenever you are going to travel with some leggings, or as I use it here with some shorts and hat for the beach!
And the red t-shirt of Bob Marley that my friend Evy it's wearing I got it from Goodwill and cut it so it will look more hip and fresh.
