What to look forward to for Holiday 2009!!!
As some of you may know, I was just in LA for our buying trip for the upcoming Holiday Season! And I just wanted to let everyone know what's new and exciting for Holiday!!! First off, the 80's are back in a major way! I know, I know. Not exactly the era that everyone wants to recreate, especially if you were a part of it the first time around, but let me tell you, its going to be quite fun! Neons are the big colors for the season. Whether it be yellow, pink, or orange. You can use them as an accent color with your jewelry or handbags, like Rebecca Minkoff is doing, or go all out with a whole ensemble! I'm actually very excited for this and have already purchased some neon nail polish to rev up for the trend! Also very 80's, the accented and over the top shoulders are back. Elizabeth & James has this AMAZING ivory blazer with accentuated shoulders and a black cummerbund belt that I am going BANANA'S over! (It's going to be a long 4 months until I can see it again!) And Robert Rodriguez was ALL about the shoulders this time around, using puff shoulders for button down blouses, jackets and one shoulder tops and dresses as well.
We also are trying out a new edgier look for the store. Great new price point and some younger lines that we are very excited to introduce to you ladies! Some new ones for us are: ADAM, Rory Beca, Mara Hoffman, Veda leather, and Geren Ford.
Here are some pictures from the Fall/Holiday designer runway shows that show some of the inspiration we can look forward to! Enjoy!!!
