Trendmirror Obsessions: BAGS, Pt I of Obsession Series

Trend Report on The Season’s Hottest Micro and Macro Bags

I know for a lot of people, it’s hard to have a small or mini bag because of the vast amount of materials they need to have with them at all times, whether for work or just privately. I myself am mini-bag obsessed, especially structured ones that are micro versions of classic and iconic bags, because I just don’t have that much to carry with me (see exactly what I keep in my bag in the video below) but use the bag as more of a statement item to any outfit. So whether you like to travel light, or prefer to have anything and everything at hand, here are my picks on my current favorite bags, available both in small or large.

The Givenchy Antigona

A personal favorite of mine, considering I own the mini version! I can tell you, this bag is an absolute dream. I can even fit a cardigan in my bag with all my other things, so think about the possibilities the medium sized version has to offer!

The Saint Laurent Sac Du Jour

This bag is the perfect bag for the office (large) or weekends and about. (small) Both sizes are spacious enough, and the pleated sides add the perfect amount of fun to the otherwise simple design.

Trendmirror’s Top Two Favorite Street Style Looks of 2014

As the year is finally over, I thought it would be a great time to reflect on two of my favorite street style looks of the past year from the iconic fashionistas  Alexa Chung and Chiara Ferragni. Enjoy!

New_York_Fashion_Week_Spring_Summer_15-NYFW-Street_Style-Alexa_Chung-Marc_By_Marc_Jacobs-Pink_Skirt-Dots_Shirt-1 New_York_Fashion_Week_Spring_Summer_15-NYFW-Street_Style-Alexa_Chung-Marc_By_Marc_Jacobs-Pink_Skirt-Dots_Shirt-7

images via http://www.vogue.com

Alexa Chung is truly a sight to behold in this 90’s-meets-mod inspired look. I love how her outfit is quite simple, by featuring some basic and classic items such as the black Tabitha Simmons booties and the black box bag from Mark Cross, but then adds something a bit more interesting and unexpected with the dotted Giles blouse, and the baby pink vinyl skirt from Marc by Marc Jacobs. I think it’s great to keep one item the focus of an outfit, and Chung definitely achieved that by keeping her outfit monochrome and adding a splash of color with her skirt. The entire look is very 60’s but Chung also modernizes it by adding a choker, which is a fairly recent trend. Overall, I am utterly obsessed with this look on her, and her fair skin and natural makeup just makes the whole outfit look put together and stylish.

As an obsessive Chiara Ferragni fan, there is nothing I have to complain about in this look. The colors are all tied together, for example the black cross body purse and sneakers, and the white color of the crop top and white detailing on the shoes. The pop of color in the pants is just stunning, and wonderfully contrasts with the basic colors of the rest of the outfit. Ferragni really breaks my usual “1 statement piece per outfit” rule by rocking a velvet YSL monogram bag with the iconic tassel, and the fire engine red dress pants, but the color scheme makes it work, and the end is result is mesmerizing!

Trendmirror’s Fave Fashion and Beauty Instagrams Of The Week!

Enjoy the roundup of some style and makeup inspiration from some of our favorite celebs and bloggers of the moment!

One of our favorite fashion bloggers, Chiara Ferragni of The Blonde Salad wowed us this week with this stunning photo of her outfit’s accessories which included her gorgeous large Chanel Boy bag, her Cartier Love and Juste Un Clou bracelet,  her breathtaking Panthere de Cartier ring, along with some other dainty pieces.

We simply love Kendall Jenner, the model of the moment, in this photo! Her bronzy gold shadow ties in so nicely with her flawless skin, defined brows, and chiseled cheekbones but her red lip is just the cherry on top!

IMG_1020

instagram: http://instagram.com/kimkardashian

Although Kim Kardashian’s ‘claim to fame’ is quite questionable, we can’t say that we don’t look to her as a style icon. Always impeccably dressed, whether formal or casual, leaving us not surprised that she and her fashionable hubby Kanye West have landed an ad campaign for the fashion house Balmain, for which her little sis Kendall also walked the runway for. Congrats!

Rising 15 year old youtube star Amanda Steele reminds us with this instagram photo why she has 1.9 million subscribers on youtube: her immaculate eye for street style fashion. Paring her Balenciaga Ceinture cut-out boots with shredded white boyfriend jeans, a beanie and an oversized cardigan has us wishing she would share some of her styling secrets!

IMG_1022

Sofia Richie is the epitome of a California winter in this photo she posted to instagram this week. Her long vest adds the perfect amount of color to her otherwise all black look, and her little backpack helps to make the look a bit more fun and age appropriate for the fashionable 16 year old.

Kylie Jenner has been making tabloid headlines for a while now with her ever growing lips, which had rumors of botox flying through the media. We felt that through all this attention on her lips, everyone has been missing out on some of her amazing outfit looks. This photo of her rugged and ripped boyfriend jeans, paired with some heeled booties for a feminine touch,  her added Balenciaga Mini Padlock All Afternoon Tote and Fendi Mohawk Bird Monster Charm is a great example of Kylie’s way of perfectly mixing casual and elegant to achieve her unique, personal style.

Trendmirror’s favorite fashion blogger of the moment, Woahstyle, is killing it again, with the perfect (warm) winter look. Pairing black ripped jeans with a simple tank, a leather moto jacket and a black sun hat may be a go-to outfit for any fashionista, but her metallic loafers and white shoulder bag help add a flare of unexpectedness that pulls together the entire outfit.

Another one of Trendmirror’s bloggers of the moment, Sonya Essman, captures the essence of the modern take on the 70’s with this amazing outfit consisting of a nude colored Chanel Boy bag, a cream bell sleeve crop top, classic black jeans, and a floppy hat.

Trendmirror’s Fool-Proof New Year’s Eve Outfit Guide

It’s December 30th, so obviously you have your whole New Year’s Eve getup planned, right? No?? Well thankfully, I’ve put together a complete outfit guide, with an outfit sure to match your style whether you’re an all-black kinda gal, a bohemian princess, or a sultry and seductive goddess.

RETRO GLAM

Pair this adorable vintage dress with some frilly cream stockings, simple nude heels and a cream clutch, for the ultimate retro chic look. Although many people cringe at the sight of stockings with heels, when worn with this mini dress, the socks help to balance out the outfit, with the perfect amount of both sugar and spice.

DIY VARIATION:

If you want to try this look with items you already own, just pair and vintage looking dress, preferably brown toned, with some cream socks, nude heels and a neutral clutch!

Makeup:

To stick with the whole neutrals theme of this look, I recommend pairing it with a natural makeup look, for example a nude lip, brown smokey eye and dewey skin. Try and refrain from using a really heavy foundation as well as excessive contouring to keep your skin looking natural.

BOHO CHIC

If you love coachella inspired outfits, this is the perfect look for you! The white lace dress is so flattering on anyone, and it’s feminine touch balances out the chunky booties. The cross body bag helps to tie the look together, by having the same color base tone as the shoes. If you really want to go all out with this ensemble, add a couple of layered necklaces and rings!

THE FLIRT

Screen Shot 2014-12-29 at 10.31.16 PM Screen Shot 2014-12-29 at 10.30.17 PM 32P04HBLK_small

Reminiscent of the epitome of romance, Dolce & Gabbana, this flirty look is perfect for a feminine look. The lace dress pairs beautifully with the black lace clutch, without being too overwhelming, while the strappy sandals help pull the look together.

Fur or Faux? The Faux Pas Dilemma

Fur or Faux? The Faux Pas Dilemma

Mink, fox and beaver furs have been worn for centuries, as a symbol of wealth and class, however many high fashion designers have been incorporating fur into their latest collections, and now sparked a bit of controversy. While PETA strongly discourages wearing fur, major fashion retailers such as MyTheresa, Barney’s and Saks Fifth Avenue can’t seem to get enough of it, selling fur bag charms, coats, hats and more.

la-modella-mafia-Model-Off-Duty-fur-+-Balenciaga-bag tumblr_inline_nfvog2gqVo1rm2ad9 long-fur-coat-street-style kate-moss-blue-fendi-coat1-234x400 Caroline-Issa-street-style-fur-coat-phillip-lim-leather-bag-fashion-over-reason

Faux fur on the other hand, although much less expensive, does not seem to catch on as quickly. Badly made faux’s tend to look obviously faux, thus not being very appealing to those who love the look of real fur.

Faux_Fur_Leather3  5bc81f6e53221a2cf8e1750cd3b3be4e

2962267_87

Fur or Faux seems to be a big decision every fashionista must make at some point in her life, so I’m going to try and help you make yours.

It all started when I was in New York City, in the winter, just as it began to snow. It was dark and freezing, so I ducked into a tiny little thrift shop somewhere in the heart of SoHo. As I walked in, the first thing that caught my eye was the rack of 20 long fur coats. They were so soft, and absolutely stunning and as I browsed through them, I couldn’t help but try one on. It was a gorgeous calf length mink with an original classic 60’s collar. When I tried it on, I felt like some fashionable celebrity, a modern day Jackie O. I twirled and twirled in front of the mirror and it felt amazing. But then, I started to think about all that I knew about the fur industry. Animals being killed in the cheapest way possible. Suffering for 9 minutes before actually drowning to death. Being skinned alive. Being gassed.

I ended up buying the coat, and although this definitely does not make up for the horrible suffering the animals endured to make this beautiful coat, what did help comfort me was the fact that I had pretty much recycled it. The coat actually was from the 60’s, so I was making one last final use out of it, so that those animals weren’t killed for nothing.

katemosskatemossstripedfurcoat9lvtphgrz-vl1 32-55a1616-anna-wintour Fendi-Models-Wearing-Fur-in-a-Fashion-Show

So, in conclusion, it is 100% your decision whether you choose fur or faux, or both, but some things to consider definitely are:

-Do you want to support the fur industry?

-Do you want to reuse a coat that otherwise would go to waste?

-Do you like the look and texture of faux?

I, myself, am completely and utterly obsessed with both. Although I do feel horrible for the animals, I am glad that I get to enjoy the warmth and beauty of a real fur, while still knowing that I am able to reuse a coat, and use it one last time before it falls apart completely, as well as owning a few fauxs that look just as great!

Trendmirror’s December Beauty Favorites!

Since December is slowly coming to an end, it’s a great time to talk about some of my favorite products of the month:

Laura Mercier Highlighter:

Swipe a small amount of this champagne colored powder highlighter on your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose and cupids bow to define these points. Try and keep away from the forehead and chin, to avoid an oily looking complexion.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Style Eye-Con eyeshadow trio Color: The Innocent 116

Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Eyeliner Crayon

I love a good smokey eye in fall and winter, and this palette is perfect for an everyday look. Pat the nude color all over the lid with a flat shader brush, and sweep along the lower lash line, about 2/3 of the way towards the tear duct. Blend with a blending brush until it looks natural. Take the warm taupe color and using the blending brush apply in the outer third of the crease and blend, to define the natural contours of the eyes. Taking an angled definer brush, apply the taupe to the lower lash line, but closer to the lashes and not as blended as the nude. Finish off with lining the tightline and water line the crayon and a touch of mascara.

TooFaced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer and Sun Bunny

It’s hard to maintain a glowing and bronzy complexion in the depth of winter, so I am obsessed with these two products! Using a contouring brush, apply the chocolate Soleil in the hollows of your cheeks, temples, and under your jawline to define. Using a small setting brush, gently pat the sun bunny all over your cheeks, similarly to a blush, to achieve a healthy, glowing and natural look.

It-Report

Current It-Girl Duo: Designer’s current favorite model Cara Delevigne has recently cozied up to up-and-coming high-fashion model Kendall Jenner, and the pair have been dominating the fashion world, from the Chanel catwalk to the cover of LOVE magazine.

With the exclusivity level almost of that of an Hermes Birkin, and current celebs like Rihanna, Miley Cyrus and Miranda Kerr sporting it around the globe, it seems like the demand for this bag isn’t going anywhere soon!

The Unfortunate Trend Report: Birkenstocks, Ugly Shoes and Bucket Hats

Birkenstocks: This sandal has been disgracing the fashion world for over 117 years, and recently became an huge summer trend. With a contoured brown footbed and dull-colored uppers, it’s no surprise that Birkenstocks were never popular amongst fashion’s elite. You might have noticed Nordstrom’s new ‘Birkenstock’ table, or seen people wearing the classic Birkenstock sandal this summer, but know that one doesn’t need to wear ugly shoes to be on trend. A birkenstock-style platform sandal was seen at Urban Outfitters as well as studded or pony hair styles from Sam Edelman help keep this horrible shoe stylish and on trend.

Bucket Hats: A popular trend already amongst hipsters, the bucket hat is now even bigger and is being supported by celebs like fashion icon Rihanna, Justin Bieber and Pharell. The bucket hat, originally fashionable in the 90’s is now making it’s big return, and is even being sold as tour merchandise at Eminem and Rihanna’s joint tour; Eminem X Rihanna: The Monster Tour.

Ugly Shoes: The ugly shoes are a trend inspired by 2014 runway style. First seen at Prada, Tommy Hilfiger, MSGM, Issey Miyake and then at the Opening Ceremony and Teva collab, the street style world was quick to catch on this trend.  From velcro straps to wavy soles, the runway had it all. Similar styles are being sold at Urban Outfitters, Nasty Gal and more hot stores.
