Autumn Baking

Autumn BakingHappy 1st day of Fall! I don’t know what it is about the fall season but it just puts me in a mood to do some baking. Cinnamon, apples, and of course pumpkin are some ingredients always on the list for fall… but it’s always nice to put a new spin on some classic flavors. I’m no chef, so I look to places like pinterest for my baking ideas. What are some of your favorite fall recipes?

Weekly Favorites

This week we have Milan fashion week going on, and since this is a weekly favorites post, I just want to point out how much I was loving the Moschino show with it’s Barbie inspired looks. Now, I know that look is not for everyone, but they sure do look fun. Another show I loved again this year was Fay, since once again they through in some Peanuts characters into their designs.

Trend Alert: Western Inspired for Fall 2014

Fall 2014 Trends: Western InspiredOne trend for fall that is straight off the runway- is western wear. We saw it at the Chanel Metiers d’Art show in Dallas last October, but we also saw plenty of wild west inspired looks during the fall 2014 runway shows. Designer brands like Saint Laurent, Alexander Wang, and Tracy Reese seemed to have all gone back in time to the wild west for a little inspiration.

If you are looking to jump in on this trend, just look for fringe details, suede leather, ponchos and capes, hats, or native american geometric prints. They key on how to get this look right? Don’t go overboard! Keep it down to about 2 pieces (like a scarf and bag, or boots and a print), otherwise you will go from trendy to costume-y.
