From Street Chic – To Glamorous Holiday Events – To a Quick Gift Guide – DGP Has You Covered
Throughout all my research for this fall & winters fashion trends I found the results to be new, refreshing with a BOMBSHELL look.
Street Chic Fashion: The layering trend is my favorite. With the flattering new cuts that are displayed on the wonderfully polished racks are at an all-time peak. You put your warm trendy thermal on, a bottom sloped sweater, a fashionable cable knit scarf and a leather jacket or must have winter coat to top it off. Match that with a pair of pleasing darkish jeans, a pair off the always trendy Uggs or some leather above ankle metal hardware boots and you got yourself one hec of an outfit. Trending heavily now, is to pair your ensemble with sneakers. Yes, I said sneakers. I highly suggest checking out the sneaker trend at Nordstrom. Very versatile to, being able to take on and off to change up your look throughout the day. Don’t forget to accessorize. Add on a groovy belt, a lot, or a little jewelry, a stylish New York influenced beanie, some fingerless gloves with a splash of color and you’re ready to roll.
This next Street Trend is a touchy one with me. Flannels. They have come a very long way from the standard flannel to the flannel with metal hardware snaps or buttons and they typical now come with a hoodie. I can picture that with a cute colored thermal underneath, a pair of jeans and sneakers. I just don’t know if I want to bring the flannel back. A little touch of the 1990’s wouldn’t hurt but let’s not revert to the old grunge days…….unless it’s totally cute.
The next trend I am proud to say is Real Fur. I apologize to all the people who are so strongly against the use of fur. But ladies we know a fur is a fur and it’s a staple for the closet. If you’re not used to the fur experience, might I suggest picking up a beautiful faux fur vest and or scarf. Not to mention beautiful fur is an instant jaw dropper. So ladies, if you want to make a grand entrance, add a little fur to your wardrobe. As for myself, I can’t resist the fur scarves, fur accents on shoes & accessories and the trending fingerless gloves with fur accents on the wrists. Those are my favorite accessories to play with, at least after my fur hat collection.
As we get into the glamour of Holiday Festivities, and with the New Year’s Eve expectations to look drop dead gorgeous, the glamour is amplified. This Winter is the Winter to be a BOMBSHELL. Eloquently rock the big Bombshell Hair, the “Red Carpet” dress, drip yourself in jewels, overdramatize the make-up & don’t forget the red lips. Hold your head up high and rock the BOMBSHELL look. Heads will be turning this Winter and into the spring of 2015.
As a special bonus I want to alert the loyal followers with some great gift ideas for the holiday season, or just because. Here is a list of some hot gift items that are for sure to impress.
Polaroid Camera… The new re-release of the Polaroid Camera is making a huge debut this season.
Vinyl’s made a huge comeback; Pair a favorite record with a new record player.
Technology; Stores are slashing the prices on technology so now is the time to get that special someone the technology they’ve been waiting for.
Gift Baskets; personalize a gift basket with their favorite make-up, skin care, hair care and a gift certificate to their favorite salon like East of Bali or The Marilyn Monroe Spa.
Theme your gifts; Create little gift packages of items from different eras.
Jewelry; with the new designs from some of the top designers, give the gift of bling. Try outlet stores for extraordinary inexpensive prices.
For clothing you can stay safe with the popular fur vests, boyfriend sweaters, unique graphic tees, infinity scarves, smart phone savvy gloves or a trending leather fur lined coat. You will be surprised at the low prices.
For that special someone in your life give the gift of something very personal. No matter if it’s a photo in a frame or a specific gift they desire, personalize it. Add your own touch to gifts by adding a homemade tag or card, autograph the photo, and place a special photo somewhere on the gift, even if it is just included in the wrapping. Personalization can make a normal gift into an awe inspired gift that the person can treasure forever.
Last on my list are gift cards. Of course they are not personal but you can make them that way. Some companies allow you to order a personalized gift card within 2-3 business days. You can also make it special yourself. Add a special note for why they are receiving the card; include ideas on how they can spend it. Wrap it up custom style to match the person who is receiving the gift and voila!
From DGP to you: HAPPY HOLIDAYS & WE WISH YOU HAPPINESS & INSPIRATION.
