Crazy Shoes- Fashion Trend for Fall 2008

According to Styleist one of the Trends for this season is quirky or crazy women's shoes.

Some of the Styles highlighted are reverse heel pumps, neon platform shoes, and ballet flats.

Posh Spice Vitoria Beckham is seen wearing some futuristic Gimabasttista Vallis in Paris. Gwyneth Paltrow is wearing very short dresses and very high heels ( is that like a Short Skirt and Long Jacket?).

The Marc Jacobs 2008 collection has some very quirky looking pumps that some swear are very comfortable to wear, but they look like HELL to me.

And of course the more "fashionable" of the Olsen Twins is rocking her own Posh Giambattista Valli "Victoria" pumps in Hello Kitty Pink. Meooowwwww.

Not to be outdone, Fendi has a 700 buck pair of cage high heel sandals- they feature a 5 inch heel covered in chain links.

Hot Dancing Star Julianne Hough Shares Her Fashions Tip

I was just a reading a style blog that often shares fashion and beauty tips of the stars. They had one on fashion tips from Julianne Hough in their Summer Style section. If you don't know Julianne- she is hot, young, and probably the best thing about the reality tv show Dancing with the Stars. She has also made a successful career transition as a country singer. Did I mention that she is hot?

What makes Julianne look so great? I am guessing she looks best in nothing, but since this is a blog about fashion we will stick with that.

Here are a few of her tips:

1. Fake Tan helps her look toned in her skimpy dancing outfits.
2. makeup- blush, foundation, bronzer, mineral eye shadow
3. Drink water for hydration and uses face cloths for the skin
4. She used open shoe insoles and other Dr. Scholls products that she can wear with sandals.
5. Aviator sunglasses are her must have for summer

Are Prom Dresses Becoming Too Sexy/Revealing?

This post is about a trend that has slowly been going for years. It's prom time, and high school girls spend countless hours trying to find the perfect dress, for hopefully the perfect price. Not only are a good style and price factors, but outdoing other girls in the sexy department is now a battle that is at an all time high. By all time high, I mean it's at the point where a high school girl was arrested at her prom, due to her dress being WAY too revealing (see picture.) There really is no excuse for this one, other than the girl wanting WAY too much attention. Yes, it is a battle to get out there and find a dress, but you can definitely find sexy designer prom dresses out there that are a lot more classy than this, and are definitely worth paying a little more for. This girl and many others like her are simply going for the shock factor, instead of exploring how to be sexy without being trashy. The "dress" she chose was probably the worst case we'll see, as I'm not sure how much more can be shown without being illegal to even wear in public, much less a prom. All this drama will hopefully steer other girls away from such a trashy choice, and more towards spending a little bit extra if need be, in order to maintain some sort of class in this era of "the sexier the better."
