    Here we see emerald (Pantone’s color of the year) popping up in the most fashionable of ways.  My favorite being the color blocked emerald/tangerine heels.

    Two words: Fur. Hats. Need I say more? Except, where can I get my own!

    Prints and patterns also reign supreme this season.  And may I say that the patterned jumpsuits paired with a super structured jacket really make a statement!  Although the classic tailored pant and powder blue dress are lovely as well.

    Once again, black and white prevails outside the tents.  However, being expressed in many ways: Glam goth-lite, polka dots, and more.

    It’s that special time of year again, and I’m not talking about V-Day. I’m talking about New York Fashion Week.  And while we absolutely adore the fantasy that takes place inside the tents, there is much to be said about those in attendance.

    Black and white proves to be a dominant trend both inside and outside of the tents and yet it is being expressed in many different ways: Color blocked leather, graphic dresses and even a simple black and white pant suit all with a pop of color from their handbags to complete the look.

    Fur is also making a comeback this season with everything from fur vests to full fledged sheepdog jackets. We can also see 90s grunge continue to hang around the fashion crowd with their sweaters tied around waists and the mixing of bold, graphic prints. The look with the trench and tiger tee screams Leandra Medine! (We totally adore her!)

    And finally we see lots and lots of color: Bright white wide legged trousers paired with bold fushia, purple harem pants and of course Pantone’s color of the year: emerald green awesomeness. Nicely played ladies!

    Chictopia: Shop It Like It’s Hot Event

    Chictopia hosted one of the biggest shopping event in San Francisco that included hundreds of stylish shoppers and fashionistas at 111 Minna Gallery. With participating shops such as American Apparel, Crossroads Trading Company, Covet Boutique, Meggie, Alyssa Nicole, Violet BoutiqueDNAThrifted and Modern, Royal Mint, it was a night that had everyone shopping for that new delightful addition to their wardrobe. What was even more fun was having two of our favorite fashion bloggers, Jessica of Hapa Time and Kathleen of InspiraFashion , show us their favorite picks of the night from the participating shops. The ASTONISH Team were also fortunate to meet and chat with the lovely co-founders of Chictopia, Helen and Corinne, who told us about how they got started (they were once roommates in college!). Amongst the crowd were fashionistas from Charlotte Russe, bloggers Chanda of Pancakestacker, Christina of A Rainy Melody, Nicole of Manners and Moxie, Jennifer of Just Add Glam, Megan of DonatilaRose, Sakura of Tabbisocks, Melissa Ann of BohemianRagsz22 and many more!

    ASTONISHStyle: TLNIQUE

    by

    Just three months in on the blogging world, Levi Nguyen has already caught the eyes of many (including ours) with her style blog TLNIQUE. But Levi is not your typical fashionista. Hailing from the Netherlands, Levi is also a very talented artist (drawing, to be exact) and you can get a sneak peek of her art on her blog as well. When asked how she describes her personal style, she says “I’m a versatile chic with a twist of uniqueness, and always open for something new.”  We totally love the way she pieced together her latest outfit: skirt by ZARA, blouse by Mart Visser, clutch and earrings from V&D, watch by Daniel Wellington, and shoes from ASOS. Check out the rest at www.tlnique.blogspot.com!
