Trend Alert!

Ladies watch out because neon colours are back!

Don't believe me? Take a look at Blake Lively's outfit from the 2009 CFDA Fashion Awards in NYC last night. Pink has never looked so hot (note to self, buy a hot pink mini.) Not a fan of pink? Try orange, yellow, green, any color under the sun, just make sure it's bright! Colours are big right now so leave you're trusty old black and white clothes in the closet and give some colour a chance. Wearing a few colours at once is also big, like a yellow and blue, or even contrasting pattens or colours. It's all about standing out in the crowd. Hate colour? Try a metallic. Heidi Klum rocked a silver metallic dress last night at the CFDA's last night (and she's pregnant, so if she can do it, anyone can).

Style Icons

Let's talk about style icons. Don't tell me you don't have one because everyone does, even if they won't admit it. Everything has been done, recycled, borrowed, or copied at some point.

My style icons you ask? First and foremost, JKO, Jackie Kennedy Onassis. Everything from Oleg Cassini, to the pillbox hats, to the love of French fashion houses, to classic American style screams Jackie Kennedy. JKO made the Whitehouse fashionable and married (and put up with) JFK, which is no small feat. Plus, she spoke like a billion languages and rode horses and always looked the part. Ladies, whenever you put on those over sized sunglasses that make you look fabulous, thank Jackie O.

Another fashion icon? Audrey Hepburn hands down. This woman was so fashionable that the GAP named a pant for her posthumously! You know you're a style icon when....

A couple modern style icons would include Kate Bosworth, Ashley Olsen (sorry Mary-Kate), and Blake Lively. I love classic American style (think Michael Kors), with a little Givenchy thrown in for fun.

Welcome to Fashion Girl!

Hello Fashion Lovers!

I've created this blog as an outlet for my love of fashion simply because I felt I couldn't share it with enough people. On this site I hope to have pictures up of my friends, of strangers, of celebs, anyone who looks good. High fashion, street fashion, catwalk and simply styled people will be featured, there will be no conventional style here. Please feel free to send me pictures of yourself or anyone else, photos you've taken, or anything you simply think looks good, whether it be an entire outfit or just a single piece. Every picture I post up here I'll try to tell you who designed it or where it's from, just in case you love something enough to want to buy it.
