black and gold combinations are a major trend this fall and winter.  with metallic fabrics and sequins overtaking stores, this look is an easy find.  here’s a less traditional way of interpreting the black and gold trend.  looking ahead at spring trends, intricate stenciling is on the radar.  like this skirt, see-through fabric overlay with a “cut out” effect will be in full swing this spring.  i like this winter version of the spring trend.  the sequins add some luster and the skirt adds some shape.  as for the t-shirt, it’s just plain and comfortable.

perfect pailletes

i really love the mixture of leather and sequin pailletes on this skirt.  this skirt is fall and winter friendly, but i’m not afraid to try it in the summer with strappy heels.  here, having a blouse layered under the top is a bit unexpected, but that’s why i like it.  take note, buttoning blouses up to the collar is a huge new trend.  i think it leaves a little bit more to the imagination:).  adding a necklace to a high collar, adds a little more depth and keeps you from looking or feeling too uptight!  anyhow, back to the skirt, i just can’t get enough of these perfect pailletes.
