Halloween is 2 days away Fashionistas! Whether you celebrate the Holiday or not, we all can't resist a fashion icon or the artistry of costumes that came from movies! This year it's all about Glam Chic and Fashion Extremists! So if you're in NY Hit Up Ricky's NYC or Target and Get all Dolled Up with some of LADI CHIC's Top Halloween Picks for 2010
Those of you that know me, know I am a sucker for Accessories, especially Jewelry! This week's LADI CHIC Item of the Week is Woven Knit Neklace by jewelry designer Christine Ettelson. Known for her traditional methods of weaving with a modern twist, Christine's Jewelry definitely caught my attention when browsing the the Fashion Section of NY MAG, and can be found in Julie Haus's Soho Store. Checkout my favorite piece from the collection the "Sundowners Necklace" below.
As a lover of fashion, I'm always inpsired by the creativity of designers and their expression of individualism, but I must also give props to my peers in the industry, as well as the innovative vision of those who possess "Street Style".
Just like everyone is entitled to thier opinion, everyone has some type of innate sense of style. To say every style is "stylish" or even notably trendy may not always fit the bill, but to each his/her own. Some people may love your style, some people may even hate it, but if there are speaking about it you have certainly made a
statement! Dress Your Best to Impress!
Check out a few of my favorite Global "Street Styles" Below
