Friday Fun: Mixing Prints

While scrolling through my Google Reader the other day, I saw a post by Habitually Chic. A typical post by a fashion blogger lucky enough to be part of the NYFW mix, titled The Front Row, gave me a glimpse into the Nanette Lepore show. She states how watching the front row is her favorite part of attending the shows (I’m sure mine would be too). In this post was a picture of what the front row looked like from her point of view. A picture with many fashionistas to chose from, but what stood out to me was Joanna Hillman, Senior Fashion Market Editor of Harper’s Bazaar, and her perfect mixing of prints.

Determined to tackle this fashion feat, I have been slowly attempting this technique with my own wardrobe. The key is making sure that the mis-matching prints have one color in common. Above Joanna has black stripes and the black in her leopard coat. With the fabulous red lip and the casual camel bag this outfit is something I will be recreating to rock myself very,very soon. Below is my ‘Friday Fun’ with the above picture as my inspiration.

Affordable New York Fashion Week Style

You didn’t think I could go all New York Fashion Week and not post about it at least once, did you? I wanted to show you, my lovely ALP readers, that there is no need to feel like you must own each piece of the new DVF line to fit in with the Manhattan fashionistas at NYFW. My proof you ask? Christine, of My Style Pill, a beautiful and very stylish woman found out and about the NYFW crowd…

She said when having her photo taken by Jamie Beck, “My entire outfit is under $100. Affordable and attainable style is refreshing.” Amen, sister! I am still drooling over this H&M leather skirt! I dug around online and could not find anything similar to it, but I have not given up yet. Next stop, the H&M store downtown. But I digress, my point is that you can look fashionable, luxurious, and NYFW-ready with what you have from the stores you can afford. It is all about what works for you and your wallet.
