Pre-Fall 2009 Collections

As promised, here’s the second part of the Pre-Fall 2009 collections. And this one’s even better than the first. I instantly fell in love with almost every collection I looked at. From Alexander Wang (edgy & sexy) to Nicole Miller (so chic!) to Tory Burch (the accessories!) and of course the unforgettable Versace (the epitome of sexy & fabulous).

Pre-Fall 2009 Collections – Part I

Pre-Fall 2009 Collections (J.Mendel, Oscar De La Renta, Roberto Cavalli, Chanel)

Pre-Fall 2009 is upon us and we have all the designer’s best pieces collected below. Enjoy our favorite pieces.

My favorite collections of the first part are:

  • Chanel Paris-Moscow – So Russian, so Coco, so luxurious! LOVE it!
  • Donna Karan – I adore the origami pleating and folding, so FIERCE!
  • Roberto Cavalli – Italian Chic at its best! So SEDUCING!
  • J.Mendel – Just looking at the collection makes me feel instantly glamourous & luxe. MAGNIFIQUE!
  • Burberry Prorsum – Nothing new, but every piece of the collection is so EXQUISITE!
  • Oscar De La Renta – ELEGANT & FEMININE as always!

The collections I liked least were Calvin Klein (too much minimalism going on, everything looks bland) and Zac Posen (just not my kind of cuts & colors).

Other collections including Narciso Rodriguez and Vera Wang also fell flat for me.

It’s just a little more than a week until christmas! I’m so excited. Spending the holidays with my family is something I’m always looking forward to. The women in our family like to get all dressed up for christmas, that’s why I like putting together christmas outfits during this time of the year.

With the US economy being in a recession, I thought I would create a beautiful christmas party outfit for budget savy fashionistas. You really don’t have to shell out hundreds or thousands of your hard-earned money to look chic and fabulous. Want proof? Take a look below. A complete festive outfit for affordable $184.60!

Bebe Tiered Silk Jeweled Neck Dress, Forever21 Coiled Teardrop Earrings, Forever21 Fashion Bracelet Set, Forever21 Osiris Clutch, Rocawear Margaretta Gold High Heels

Next thing on my list is to create a fashionable christmas outfit for under $100. Wish me luck on this one!

Lindsay Price vs. Jennifer Morrison vs. Liya Kebede - 3.1 Phillip Lim Navy Ruffle Dress

Fashion Faceoff time! Seems like this navy 3.1 Phillip Lim ruffle-front dress is quickly becoming a celebrity favorite. As of now, 3 beautiful ladies donned this romantic midnight blue frock. The tiered ruffles on the skirt, the poofy sleeves, the navy color – simply adorable, isn’t it?

Actress Jennifer Morrison was the first to wear this popular mini dress at the 3.1 Phillip Lim Los Angeles Flagstore Opening back in June. She accessorized with a beautiful pearl necklace, a silver box clutch and a pair of silver strappy sandals.

Fast forward 6 months later. Model Liya Kebede opted for the same dress which she kept well hidden under her black coat on December 1st, 2008 at the screening of the “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button“. The model wore her dress with black tights, black boots and carried a black handbag.

Lindsay Price was the last to join the 3.1 Phillip Lim-lovers by wearing the same ruffled dress to “Hornitos Midnight in the Garden of Agave” a few days after Liya’s red carpet appearance. The actress opted for red suede Mary Janes and red lips to go with the dress.

My favorite has to be Jennifer Morrison. She was the only one doing this beautiful dress justice because of her well chosen accessories (jewelry, clutch & shoes). Plus, I love how she wore her hair in a loose wavy updo to give the dress a sophisticated look.

The other two managed to look decent, but I wish Lindsay would’ve picked some accessories to add interest (the red shoes and lips weren’t simply enough for me) and Liya’s version was plain boring (she didn’t seem to be enjoying herself in general).

Who wore 3.1 Phillip Lim best?

Look of the Day – Fighting the Winter Blues

by Profashionelle on December 16, 2008 · 0 comments

Getting through this cold season without developing a major winter depression can be pretty tough sometimes. The lack of sunshine and the chilly temperatures dry up a lot of our physical and mental energy. But fear not! Intelligent fashion is here to save your day!

To avoid the winter blues, remember to add bold colors such as hot pink, canary yellow or soylent green to your winter wardrobe. This will help to keep the blues away from you (plus everyone coming your way) and will also make sure you get noticed during this dreary season. Genius, huh?

Donna Karan Silk blend coat, Alexander McQueen Hologram belt sweater dress, Jimmy Choo Riki patent bag, Balmain Fringed leather boots, 3.1 Phillip Lim Jeweled leather gloves, DKNY Wool beanie hat, Falke Twin pack of leggings
