The Zebra or Doppler Effect

 Hey everyone!

You know this weekend was a time good spent. Got some studying done for my midterms, ate lots of good foods and yeah I got a post. A trend that seems to be coming back full force this season is black and white. Aside from simple black and white patterns, what is making a big statement are stripes, namely the black-and-white ones, it’s shaping up as one of the hottest trends. And we got Marc Jacobs and Moschino’s Spring’ 13 runways to thank for this burgeoning two-tone takeover. I was reading recently why ZARA runs so smoothly, one point they made was Zara anticipate the upcoming trends before runways and their unbeatable reasonable prizes make Zara what it is now. I think Zara’s founder’s family is one of the 6 wealthiest families in the world and number 1 in Spain. What I am trying to say is, Zara anticipated this trend last year and they had a nice collection of stripes. Zara is so successful that they do less online and its very hard to get sizes if your local stores run out. Only selective countries have Zara online and Australia isn’t one of em. I had to go through a hell lot of trouble to get my hands on this Blazer along with my Zara military and tweed jacket, which I wore in my first 2 posts of 2013. I had to ask my friend in US to get it delivered in her address and she had it delivered to Australia. It was very expensive with all the delivery stuffs having to care of myself. I liked 2 other purchases, actually loved em but I was meaning to sell this Blazer, as you can see size is little too big. I didn’t remove the price tag, hoping I could sell but now it’s like one of the must haves of 2013, I decided to keep it. Actually can’t find a buyer( laugh), anyone interested? I will sell it for $100 (wink)

 One of the new ways to pair your Blazer this season is to wear a matching shorts. I have really been digging this trend. White, Black,red,pink,yellow,Green colored Blazers look so amazing if worn this way, thats my personal observation and I tried with stripes, what do you think? Stripes give Vintage and retro look; it is clean, crisp and classic.
The mall where I usually shop did some extension and I particularly was looking forward to the opening of Michael Kor and while I was on it I visited Stella McCartney and Gucci showroom, knowing I couldn't buy a thing. All of em had amazing black and white patterned cloths. To step- down , brands like Zara and topshop have amazing black and white collections this season as well.

 Normally you will notice with my stilettos, I tag never worn or hardly worn and its true, but with my wedges they are like the most worn, explains why this one looks so beaten up! I love wedges, its gives you required height lift and your feets don't kill you whole day. Nothing beats my initialled shirt (wink).
