>Fall Denim

> Hey everyone, I am back from vacation. I have been on September magazine overload and I can’t wait until Fall begins. This week I will be going over the hot Fall trends. Starting with denim.

Every year denim is the hottest item for Fall. This year denim has a new look and comes in a variety of shapes and sizes. Best of all, since the recession, trendy denim is affordable.

This season the 80’s are taking over fashion. Some of the new styles you will see are acid washed, ripped denim, boyfriend jeans, and denim leggings. ( I wish they left the acid wash trend back in the 80’s). Try denim blazers and vests to complete your looks.
The great thing about trendy denim is that it’s fun and it repeats itself every 5-10 years. So, please don’t be afraid to try.

>Animal Prints For Fall Fashion

>Every now and again I wake up in the morning feeling like I can handle anything and I can take on anyone. I have no fears no regrets, my thoughts are all about making that day a great day. That feeling translates through my wardrobe. I have no insecurities and I put on whatever I want and miraculously I look good in it and I feel good in it. I look in the mirror and say to myself, “Curves, you are looking right.”

Today, I had that feeling I like to call my animalistic vibe. It made me think about the Fall and how animal prints will be everywhere for the Fall season. I know many of you are afraid of the animal prints, but, I am here to tell you don’t be. Your curves will look great in animal prints. If you are still too afraid. Try animal print accessories like leopard print shoes or a zebra print bracelet.
Alissa’s tips:
Full figured Curves: Checkout the Lane Bryant dress in the leopard family. It will give you an hour glass figure. Notice how it pulls away from the stomach and floats around the hips to give your shape an equal balance. The small leopard print will make you look smaller.
Petite Curves: Checkout the Top Shop jumper in the pink animal print. This will highlight your curves in all the right places and it will accentuate a small waist as well as add length to your small frame.
Hour Glass Curves: Checkout the Kay Unger dress in a V-Neck fitted silhouette. This will accentuate the bust line as well as show off a small waist and voluptuous hips.

FASHION AND RETAIL NEWS

SAKS FIFTH AVENUE

According to the Associated Press: Retailer Saks Inc. said Tuesday its second-quarter loss widened as consumer spending on luxury fashion continued to languish, but the loss was not as

big as analysts expected.
The retailer lost $54.5 million, or 39 cents per share, in the three months that ended Aug. 1. That compares with a loss of $32.7 million, or 24 cents per share, a year earlier.
