Olivia Palermo Stays on Trend

As you'd suspect from any fashion it-girl, Olivia Palermo j’adores Dior. It’s always one of her Paris Fashion Week highlights, with the Spring/Summer 2013 show being no different, as Olivia shared on her blog before jetting to Africa.

We can't get enough of Olivia's navy Dior peplum dress, Giuseppe Zanotti navy pointed toe pumps, a furry clutched sized purse by Dior and sunglasses a la Westward Leaning.

Always in style, Olivia nailed the of-the-moment mixed fabric trend. We at Joonbug, love, love, love!

5 Spring Shoe Trends to Buy Now

The Sliver Sandal

We’re loving the mini-version of spring’s super-hot wedge trend, one that allows you to multitask while walking rather than focus on not spraining an ankle. Take a cue from Alexander Wang—the sliver wedge is just the right amount of heel for a feminine boost and black scales add an extra point of interest to any look. They’ll be perfect paired with spring’s breezy printed pants or a sweet midi dress.

Warm weather is finally coming our way, and with it, our warm weather clothes! Dresses, tanks, and most importantly, sandals and peep toe shoes are appearing slowly, but surely. As we have started to see, this spring’s trends encompass bright colors and crazy patterns, so it should come as no surprise that shoes have followed suit. The chunky, funky heels are definitely an interesting add to the mixture of chaos going on for spring ’12 styles. With wild colors, brilliant combos of fabrics and textures, and of course, the chunky heel or wedge, these funky shoes will be taking on the style scene by storm.

Investment Pieces: Go Ahead and Splurge!

The economic climate in recent years has broken down the spendthrift. These days even spendthrifts do less spending, and more thrifting. However, sometimes you just can't find what you need at the price you want. And that's ok, because some pieces are meant to be investments. Investment pieces are signature items of any wardrobe - rightfully termed and categorized as such for the practicality, durability, and timelessness of their nature. You can't put a price tag on quality like that, but when there is it's usually pretty high. Here are some big ticket investment pieces that we think actually are well worth the purchase.

Sexy Stars, Sexy Shoes

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!

Best Dressed: MTV Movie Awards 2011

During last night’s MTV Movie Awards, we saw all of our favorite celebrities decked out in their best Award-worthy outfits. We saw everything from ball gowns to mini dresses to even rompers, and we loved them all (for the most part!). Some of the major trends highlighted were lace, animal print, and metallic designs. Here are our top 15 favorite looks from this year’s event...

1. Selena Gomez’s Giambattista Valli-designed look topped our list. The Disney starlet opted for light, summery-toned separates and a clutch designed by Cecilia. She told MTV's red carpet reporter and Project Runway alum Christian Siriano that as soon as she saw the trendy, but age-appropriate look, she was sure it the one!
