LET THERE BE PASTEL

It’s just too hot here. And as a dark colors devotee, I surrender.

Suddenly all my blacks and greys seem too harsh for this weather, and it’s time to hibernate. Now that pastel colors are literally everywhere, from high street to high end brands, I hope I’ll find my love affair with the goody goody colors.

Not that I hate pastel colors. I love looking at them, I just think they’re too sweet for my liking. Truly, I can’t imagine looking at myself in the mirror wearing pastel. But clicking through J.Crew site, I found pastels even me can’t resist to wear. Eyelet capri pants, scalloped sling back flats, gingham shirt, color block clutch…these are the kind of pastel that I wouldn’t mind seeing  myself in. Now I’m convinced to make that transition.

LOOK! IT’S A LOOKBOOK

There are no better ways to check out how the fashion stylists put on together a look, than a Lookbook. It’s like a compilation of photographs to show off the newest collection, and for me, it’s like a dictionary of style. Pronto! Every season, most of designers and clothing line will come up with their very own Lookbook, and these are my favorites from Fall 2012 (from retails to high end brands). Enjoy.
