Step Into the Future of Fashion With Classic Inspiration From Ms. Jackie Kennedy

31 Aug


We all know the beautiful Jackie Kennedy, (later to be named Jackie Onassis) as first lady to the charming Mr. John F. Kennedy. Us ladies also know that Jackie Kennedy was a prominant figure in fashion, revamping the White House by bringing style into politics and yes, making it look good. She set the stage for what the ideal “American” woman should look like; sophistcated, classy, and of course fun. I have always admired Jackie for her strong-willed, independent and witty personality. I read a few short excerpts in the book, “What Jacki Taught Us” by Tina Santi Flaherty and something that caught my attention was after the first day she was selected to work for VOGUE MAGAZINE, she turned it down claiming the women worked to hard and were tiresome. Ha! How about that? She made fashion something fun and exciting, not something that consumed her.

Sticky.Vinyll would like to inspire Jackie’s look on to all the ladies approaching the future of fashion, who are looking for something new, but still classic. Notice how less is more and how pearls, a simple hat, and good pair of gloves will change a girl into a whole new woman …AND don’t forget the shades! Thanks Jackie.

Back to School on a Budget.

19 Aug

E V E R Y T H I N G U N D E R $ 6 0

Needsupply.co/ Double V Tee/ $36

So, it’s that time again. Early morningssleepless nights, term papers and last minute cram sessions. Under all that stress, we must strive to look our best! But, lets be honest. The term starving college student wasn’t coined in vain. As students, or young adults, shopping on a BUDGET is more than practical and the most realistic option. I found some cool things that would be perfect to have for “Back to School” and are all UNDER $60 bucks. From head to toe, find great buys at economical prices.

Fall Finds.

Fall is quickly approaching. Time to start shopping for the necessities; jackets, boots, sweaters and more. It’s important to buy a few staple pieces early in the fall and add gradually as the weather gets cooler. One piece I feel is good to have in your wardrobe for the fall is the classic trench coat. The Twisted Trench Coat in khaki, featured on ShopNastyGal.com for $118 is a perfect option. I like this specific trench coat because of the classic khaki color and traditional double breasted detail. I like this jacket because it’s short, lightweight, and has a youthful appeal. I think it would look best paired with something of a similar length, like a dress or skirt, or with a tall pair of riding boots! Check it out here now!

Put Some Bows on it.

4 Aug


For any one who knows me, they can validate I’m genuinely obsessed with bows. I’m convinced that they’re thee most adorable, cutest, and sweetest thing that was ever created. Once I saw what VALENTINO did for his 2010 Fall/Winter collection, I instantly became plagued with bittersweet emotion. Bitter because my finances don’t support my exorbitant taste, but sweet because that’s exactly what this collection is. It’s girly, fun, fantastic and of course, filled with bows galore!

Of course, if I was in love with the clothes, my obsession with these gloves is probably going to be on the next level. If I could get my hands on these for the fall, I would be one of the happiest girls on the planet. Fashion heads have been saying that the gloves are tacky, and tastless. However, I one hundred percent disagree. I believe they are hot S@#! Over all, this is one of my favorite collections for Fall/Winter 2010 thus far.

Victorian Sci-Fi Surgery

1 Aug


I stumbled upon these Ginormous Platforms while sufing the net a few days ago. By designer Gabrielle M. Gonzalez, this platform is featured in her “Victorian Sci-Fi Surgery” collection for Autumn/Winter 2010. I have yet to find out how much they are going for, but they can be found at Machine-A boutique in London. Please, don’t hesitate to see her LookBook. The photography is amazing, and model Jemima Croker is exceptional. You can also visit Gabrielle’s blog to find the latest news going on in her world.

Ok, so I’m not going to lie. I think this is absolutely CREEPY, but at the same time, I find it innovative. I do believe Fashion Designer PATRICK MOHR had tons of meaning and explanation behind this concept. For Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin, Mohr displayed his collection for Spring/Summer 2011. His collection reflects unisex garments with the intention to be layered, mixed and matched and his zany approach to convey his thoughts about his line are obvious.

I think the idea behind having his male and female models wear the same makeup was to take attention off their individual faces, and focus more on their garments. The fact that the collection is unisex emphasizes the importance of gender equality. In addition to his sex flexible collection, there is also meaning behind his design pattern as well. He opts to use more geometric forms such as rectangles and triangles in order to represent different garments such as T-shirts and jeans. See all of Mohr’s collection below!
