don't you... forget about me

Hi :)
So I haven't been the greatest of bloggers.... but don't worry. I am going to be the best blogger of all time. Kind of.
I have decided to post at least one blog entry (whether it's possible or not) every single week.
Prepare for awesomeness.

Anyways, I thought I ought to tell you the upcoming fall trends. Heads up, it's all about luxury.

Okay, so the first trend to look out for this fall is fur. Lots and lots of fur. If you're not a fan of killing animals for fashion, there are plenty of fantastic fake fur pieces out on the market. Also, play with fun colored furs, like the ones in Gucci's fall ready to wear collection.

Gold jewelry is also a must for autumn. Bangles, hoops, necklaces, anything. In general, you want to make a statement with jewelry this fall/winter.

Whether it's lip color or a shade of fabric, wine is this season's "it" color. However, don't just buy an entire wardrobe in these deep red shades. Instead, try on these colored pieces to see which shade will look best on your skin tone, which also applies to wine colored lipstick.

Bad ass beauties rejoice, because leather is making an appearance on the runways for fall 2011. Again, if you'd rather wear fake leather, be my guest.

Color blocking is super hot this fashion season. The thing is it doesn't have to be a bold block pattern like a Mondrian artwork, but you can work this pattern subtly as well.

Love em or hate em, polka dots are back in style. There are plenty of ways to play with this fun print, but remember that a little goes a long way. Unless you really like polka dots a lot. Then go for it. :)

Are diamonds really a girl's best friend? Nope, but a favorite pair of pumps just might be. These sky-high heels have graced the runway this fall, making those super tall models even taller.

On that lovely note, I am ending this blog post about the major fall fashion trends of 2011. Love you all dearly! :D
