Fashion Week: Chanel going for Streetwear and Clowns? Fall/Winter 2014 Collection

Chanel's lineup was quite bold, and very unexpected, with a lot of teared clothes and sneakers. The grocery store backdrop was odd too. Chanel's always been so classy! While refreshing it also was also very unexpected.

And while some ensembles were very hip-hop street style in a chic way, some included a very bright, art-deco pattern that I can't say is my favorite.
 I guess solid colored trench coats are bag in?

Fashion Week: Obssessed with Elie Saab's Fall/Winter 2014 Ombré Gowns

 Elie Saab had two big themes going for his runways: ombré and sexy black lace.

I really loved the ombré look. I haven't seen it for a while now and it's nice to see again on the runways, especially on velvet.

Trendspotting: Daisy Explosion

The 70's have been fading in and out, constantly bring in a flux of old trends. Now it's the ultimate symbol of the 70s: The daisy. The phrase "flower child" came out of the 70s and it's back, now completely immersed into the mainstream.

And this print is literally on everything.

It's an outline.

 It's on bikinis.

It's on everything, actually.

I've already stocked up on a daisy tank top and high waist shorts. I'm not much of a 'florals' kind of girl because in general florals are too girly for my taste, but the daisy print invokes such 70s flair that it leaves the style up to you: boho, retro, girly. You can even make it edgy by adding a black leather jacket. It's literally anything you want it to be.
