Trend of the Moment: The Poncho

The Burberry Colour Block Check Blanket Poncho has been spotted on anyone who is anyone. Trendsetters from Sarah Jessica Parker to Olivia Palermo have been seen dawning this hot ticket item.  While I'm not a total fan of the poncho look or the particular colors of this poncho, I don't mind the way that Olivia wore it.  It certainty looks cozy and those thigh high boots are killer!   I think part of the popularity of this poncho is it's versatility.  It can be worn as pictured below or it can be thrown on over a tee and jeans. Another neat thing about the item is that you can get it monogramed as Burberry now offers a monogramming service on many of their scarves.  Are you feeling the look?

Fun Faux Fur

The fur trend is absolutely one of my favorites of this season.  Ot's only going to continue to get bigger.  Fendi has been at the frontrunner of this trend for quite some time as fur accents are part of their signature look.  Look at Cara Delevigne rocking a fur bag, coat, shoes, and even hair in the image below from one of Fendi's runway shows.

Incorporating faux fur into your wardrobe can be a bit scary!  The easiest way to introduce fur into your wardrobe is to start with an accessory.  My favorite is the bag poof.  It's an easy way to change up the look of a handbag that you already have in your wardrobe.  Etsy has a great selection of these keychains if you are interested.

I think the second easiest way is to get into the trend is to throw on a faux fur vest, it adds a bit of a luxe touch to your fall/winter outfit.  It makes a great layering piece because it adds texture.  I have my eyes on this vest.

Some forecasters believe that the fur trend will make is way into spring.  I think it will be interesting to see how fur accents will be integrated into spring wardrobes.  How do you feel about fur?

Poll 2 Results

In the last poll I asked how long it takes you to get ready in the morning.  Half said that it took between 26-45 minutes to get ready.  To those of you that can get ready in less than 25 minutes, I commend you!  What are your secrets?  It takes me about 30-35 minutes to get ready, on a good day. In order to cut down the time on my morning routine I usually shower at night and air dry my hair while I sleep.  I have a pretty standard makeup routine that takes about 15 minutes.  I'll then spend about 5 minutes taming my hair, since I'm trying to avoid heat.  Next I'll spend about 10-15 minutes trying to figure out what to wear - definitely the hardest part of my morning routine.  Check the right column for the next poll now!
