Nappi Clothing, Nothing Better!

Danny Nappi from Salt Lake City is probably the hottest designer to come from the beehive state. He's created a line that has the looks of French Connection, Diesel and Urban Outfitters packaged into one brand. I have to say, his jeans are my favorite and although they retail at $180.00, it's worth the buy considering the quality, fit and feel. It really doesn't get better. You NEED a pair. His other designs which aren't yet posted on his website are amazing too. Dresses, skirts, shorts, jackets. Look out for him because in no time his stuff will be all over and in high demand.

Spring 2009 Trends! Some HOT some NOT!

I have to say, Spring 2009 is going to be one of my favorite seasons EVER. There are so many style elements and trends that are easy to wear. I LOVE the direction the designers are going.

The fashion shows are still happening (Italy and Paris) and I will be talking about more of these trends as they happen but here's what I notice so far. Some of the trends for spring are going to be a little out there, but watch and see, they'll be in full swing by fall 2009 and everyone will be wearing them. Look below for more details.

Solids: This trend is one of the easiest to wear. I mean, all you have to do is go through your closet and pick a color and put in on. How easy is that? Plus, wearing all one color tends to make people look more slim and tall. That's a great advantage!

This trend is one of my favorites and one that I wear a lot. Ethnic styles, patterns and colors.
I'll write more about this later because it's a great one and there are SO many varieties is style for 2009.
The long casual dress: These came in style spring 2008 and thank goodness, they will stay till next year. If anyone has a weird body variation they want to hide, wear a long dress with some sandals and you're sure to feel confident where ever you go. Last week I attended a wedding in Michigan and was debating what to wear. I love that I'm 7 months pregnant and that I have a cute bump, but I'll admit, it's not a body shape and variation I'm used to. I found the coolest long dress at Zara for only $60 and wore it to the wedding. It was great, no one really knew I was pregnant. He he.

I like to call these MC Hammer pants. Remember back in the early 90's when these were the hottest thing to wear? Gee's, they were terrible. BUT, they can be fun to wear and actually look good on you too. I'll write more about this soon because I want to show how to wear them best. Check back soon (like next week)!

I will also write about more trends for next year as well. I really haven't been this excited for a while so please come back!
