Bonjour, mes amis

quick edit! my link has been changed to: fashionfleur.blogspot.com! Merci!


T
oday's label of the day is French brand Heimstone!
With clothes in beautiful shades of brown and black, Heimstone's creations are delightfully romantic yet playful. You can wear this stuff during the day and change the look for night with the same dress! Graceful dresses, funky accessories, and even swimwear are a part of their collections which are available for purchase at Jumelle in NYC and Satine in LA.





So, this fall is all about the polished look. Looking through this month's Vogue, fall fashion takes a mature turn after a series of trends meant for the young such as skinny jeans and leggings. So we ask ourselves, what is a polished look and how can we pull it off?

Runways recently have been showcasing structured looks that aren't too complicated and very sleek. They involve dark colors and simple fabrics that support dressing up instead of down. Instead of mix and match, the new look for fall is having a pulled-together look and being complete.

This particular look from Elie Saab's Fall 2007 couture collection reflects several of the fashion world's current obsessions:

SEQUINS
PATENT LEATHER
LEATHER&SUEDE
SHOWY CUFFS
GRAY
JACKETS
KNITS
CROCODILE
WIDE-LEGGED PANTS
SPARKLES
HEELS
POINTY FLATS


Here are some of my picks [from low to high prices!] for achieving the early fall trends:
