Street Style. Enough Said.

California Styles

I love the cute dresses, bright colors and shoes that these easy-going Californians are all too well known for. I wish I could find those white wooden heeled pumps and matching belt that the girl in the bottom left is wearing.

Stockholm Fashions

Love the full skirt that the girl on the bottom left is wearing. Also, the girl in that amazing red trench has shown me a way to wear black skinny jeans and make them super chic!

New York Represent!

New York has definately lived up to it's name as one of the most stylish cities in the world! I think that's Finnola (Style Network's How Do I Look) in the bottom left. Great coats, great boots, New York has it all.
From Paris

The one thing I noticed about Parisian fashions (besides how chic they are) is that a great coat is key to looking fabulous! With eye-catching prints and super-sized attitude, Parisian clothing is obviously made for the bold! I love how the lady in the first picture effortlessly pulls of those modish wide legs!

Straight From the UK

I love the bold colors that all these Londoners wear. Also, they show that you can be completely covered and still look sweet and stylish.

Barcelona Inspiration:

So, they say most designers get their inspirations from the streets, and now you see why. And from the looks of things, you don't have to be a millionaire to look like a million bucks! This fall, try mixing and matching low end and high end , and old and new items to create a look that's all you. So which city has the best style? Which city has a style similar to yours? These pictures are all courtesy of the Adore Vintage Forums. Be Inspired!

Celebrity Style: Hilary Duff

She's grown up alot, hired a new stylist and is still trying to shed her 'Good Girl' image. I think she's turned into a style icon. The thing I love most about her style is that it seems so efforetless.
Be Inspired!

Fashions I Just Don't Understand

These shoes, wingtips and boat shoes, seem to be increasingly popular now a days, and I'm asking WHY??? They look like old men shoes and I still don't see the chic-ness of them. I wear size 11 in shoes, and the heinous atrocities would only make my feet look worse! First of all, they don't even look feminine. I mean, we have bofriend jeans, grandpa cardigans, menswear shorts and vests, and now this?? I'm not a fan of cross dressing, so these styles of footwear are OUT in my book. What do you think?? (these shoes are all from Urban Outfitters, btw)
