Summer trends are slowly fading; fall is approaching and with it comes an array of new trends. If you’re like most you are anxiously awaiting fall's romantic weather, eager to wrap yourself in colorful layers and stylish add ons. One of our favorite trends of the season, however, is the fierce fur bag statement seen at Miu Miu, Fendi, Louis Vuitton, and Marni among others. Sometimes it just seems like designers like to work together. Whether they come in a bright, colorful hue or something a little deeper they’re each just as furry and cozy, so don’t be surprised if catch yourself hugging your bag more than once.
Joonbug is definitely feeling the style collaboration between Target and Neiman Marcus. Referred to as a "legendary partnership" featuring over 50 gorgeous gifts from over 24 exceptional designers, Neiman Marcus at the Paramus, NJ location is hosting a soiree to kick-off this fashion extravaganza. As many of you know, located in beautiful Bergen County, NJ -- the Neiman Marcus Paramus location is a premiere shopping experience. The area is known for their malls, and Neiman's certainly doesn't disappoint.
One store. One city. One luxury experience for one-hundred and eleven historical years. Bergdorf Goodman is preparing to commemorate its 111th birthday, and the fall surprises include something for everyone. As one of the most successful single stores in a single city, this occasion is not only a monumental event for the company, but also for the designers who started at the New York City store.
While Bergdorf Goodman has a combined total of 190,000 square feet between the men and women’s departments, and brings in an estimated $600 million in annual sales, rivaling even the likes of other, larger, competitors, it takes flawless dedication, an undying commitment to fashion, and a strong vow to nurturing relationships and providing quality service, to last this long. With this many successful years under the iconic store’s belt, we think the festivities are well deserved.
Neon is making a victory lap and a successful comeback this spring in all sorts of ways. It made an appearance a few seasons ago, and of course we all remember its big hit in the electric eighties, but is it possible that this somewhat tacky look has come to our spring 2012 making a classy third appearance?
We here at Joonbug have found a few neon favs for this spring that could definitely make the once-was cheap trend, turn into a fashion forward chic look.
Check out our favorite bright pieces that made the Not Your Typical Neon list in the slideshow!
In the world of the red carpet the outfit is an important statement but nothing says more than a pair of fabulous shoes!
Model/actress Brooklyn Decker accessorized her red-hot leather mini dress with Christian Louboutin "Pigalle" spiked gold heels at the ESPY Awards.
True Blood star, Anna Paquin went with a black-and-red combo, pairing her Antonio Berardi dress with perforated Gucci open-toe heels at Comic-Con
As if the star's Balmain ensemble at the Captain America premiere wasn't chic enough, she paired it with killer Brian Atwood "Poisa" pumps. Def one of my favs!
As red hot star Mila Kunis promotes her latest film opposite Justin Timberlake, Friends With Benefits, we all benefit by learning a little bit more about the celebrity's sense of fashion. From the ditzy girl next door Jackie in That '70s Show to a crazed ballerina in Black Swan, the Ukrainian beauty has been proving her versatility for a considerable amount of time for such a young talent. In the public eye since the early 90s, appearing in print ads and commercials for Mattel's Barbie, Guess girls and even a small role on popular soap opera Days of our Lives. In 1998, Mila Kunis was cast in Fox's That '70s Show, playing Jackie Burkhart at the young age of 14. Growing up on camera and behind the scenes as well, Kunis began to lend her vocal cords as the voice of Meg Griffin on Fox Broadcasting Company's Family Guy, a gig she still has 12 years later.
Get this: an online site that sells the industry's biggest names, all at a seriously steep discount.
After many hours of investigative work, we here at Joonbug uncovered arguably one of the most coveted online shops out there. We're talking Alexander McQueen, Brian Atwood, Marc Jacobs - all the brands you drool over now at equally drool-worthy prices, and all of it a click away on TheOutnet.com.
It gets even better, in addition to boasting up to 70% off on names like Proenza Schouler and Miu Miu, the site also holds flash sales, three types of sales to give your wardrobe an instant gratification. Check out a Pop-Up Sale for time sensitive shopping opportunities usually lasting a little over a two days. If you're more of a thrill-seeking shopper, scope out a Going, Going, Gone Sale that works like a reverse auction. Once the clock starts ticking, the price starts dropping on limited quantity items.
The ratio of the amount of clothes men own to the amount women own can get a bit ridiculous- just peek in your brother, father, boyfriend, husband, or friend’s closet and you’ll see. Theirs is a small corner of neatly arranged (well, in theory) shirts, slacks, jackets and shorts with a few pairs of shoes thrown in. While, I will agree, this is not nearly as exciting as a closet full of sky high heels, gold lame trench coats, and cocktail dresses that really fit only a handful of occasions, the simplicity of a man’s closet is something we can learn from.
Men and women alike tend to wear certain wardrobe staples over and over again- we just tend to have more of these staples and have more options to update them from outfit to outfit. Having these three basics- essentials, rather- that a. fit well, and b. are of high enough quality they can last through several seasons, will make getting dressed in the morning as easy as 1-2-3.
Brian Atwood To Leave Bally: In a world where the economy sucks and designers are acting more like celebrities than people who want hold onto their jobs, we get the news of Atwood's departure from Bally. Rumors were put to rest once Atwood showed his last bevy with Bally for Fall 2010. He says he plans to focus on his own label (or was he just asked to leave after the company's investor's major financial stir up?) We say: Good luck with that!
The Vicky Girls Heat Up: Initially, you'd just assumed that Victoria Secret models are girls who can't quite fit a size 0, but instead fit a size 2 and can fill out a bra. But then they let Chanel Iman walk. Milan began a trend by inviting VS models to walk in Prada, and now it's rumored there are more to walk in Giles Deacon today. Is this a new "curvy girl" sensation? Because pasting plus-size girls in mags like, oh I don't know, V Mag, wasn't at the least bit sensational.
Let's all take a moment to review what really happened at this year's Golden Globes awards: everyone had a choice of vintage, Brian Atwood pumps, and Roger Vivier accessories - well, not everyone, but certainly the majority.
The ultimate conclusion: no celebrity, or their stylist for that matter, can put together a stunning red-carpet look anymore. Though, many don't seem to have a problem blaming the outcry of designers opting not to participate too much this year. Tsk-Tsk!
