Tribal prints have always been one of my favorite trends, especially for summer. I've always had trouble with silhouettes working with my body. I'm more of a pear shape in the sense that my top is wayyyyy smaller than my bottom (aka the hips are big and don't lie!) But I do find that wearing "body con" skirts and dresses with a print (because my body isn't the greatest of shape right now and having solid colors would just show EVERYTHING) work best for my body. I can't always wear circle skirts like I want to because the booty has a mind of its own! Pretty much I can't wear them because they get really short in length and my butt looks huge when I wear them. But big in a not so flattering way...never the less! I love wearing this skirt because I can change the length from micro mini to ankle length! 

Now, I ask you! Thoughts on printed skirts! Love it or leave it?!

Lots of Love,

ps - Here's a video of my outfit! Check it out!

DKNYJeans with Patches!

Monday, June 23, 2014

One thing I love about fashion is how history repeats itself. Although sometimes it can go horribly wrong (let's hope boys wearing their pants to their ankles never comes back!....oh, wait...it's still around...) never-the-less, like Mr. Timberlake sings what goes around comes around. Fashion is all about recycling! DKNY's new campaign with Jourdan Dunn, Cara Delevingne, and A$AP Rocky, which I absolutely love all of them together and will talk about another time, shows Jourdan and Cara both in jeans/jean jacket with different patches on them! It's so 70's hippie but with a twist of 90s! I love it! In the picture to the right we can see Miss Dunn rocking the patchwork pants at a DKNY event. She styles them very simply with a white crop tank top and black heels. Perfect for the summer! This would be a perfect DIY project for the summer! I think I may have to try this out sometime soon! More deets later!

THOUGHTS?! Do you love this look or are you going to skip this trend this fall?

Lots of Love,

Haute Off The Press!

           There comes a time when we need to stop, take a moment, breath and think about what we are doing. For me this was blogging. Unfortunately I wasn't on top of renewing my other url (elizzabethhope.com) so now I'd like to present my new url! Welcome to Haute Off The Press! (Haute like Haute Couture! Yey Fashion!)

           I know I've changed my URL more than enough times. But change can be good! I'm not one for settling for something too long. I switch things up all the time...it's probably ADD or something unknown. But I'm going to stick with this one for a very LONG time! Believe me!

          So what have you been up to you say? Well, I have been trying to find a job, catch up on sleep (because we all know college screws up my sleep like no other!), finding inspiration for my line of clothes I'm designing, hanging out with my family and friends before I go off to London in the fall!, and trying to figure out everything with my blog!!! Now that I'm finally getting my life together again and figured out what I should name my blog I can finally get back on track!

Here's some work I've done in school/my life since I've last posted!

Made a jacket! My own design, made the pattern, sewed it all together myself!

Illustrations for my finals!!

Went kayaking for the first time with Tay!!

Saw Iggy in concert!!!

Went to a Red Sox game!

Met Tyler Hilton from One Tree Hill!!! (For all you fans out there! I've only watched like 2 episodes...I need to start watching it...my best friend Katie is obsessed!)

More illustraions for finals!

and got blond...er a lot blonder!!! 

That's what I have been doing! But don't let this fool you! I've been on my sofa for days watching the whole series of That 70s Show! I'm on Season 6! It's been 2 weeks...So, what have you've been up to?! Let me now in the comments below!!!

Lots of Love,
