Rodney Smith

I recently stumbled across the photography work of Rodney Smith, I absolutely love how he creates worlds whose logic is his own. He's definitely old school with a twist. Rodney Smith's photography is like the perfect romance, a cinderella ball, like Audrey Hepburn meets Victorian decadence and Rene Magritte, its like a Parissiene dream. I would love to fill our home with Rodney Smith prints, and fall asleep dreaming of kisses on cab roofs. Perfect concepts, perfect models, and perfect pictures. I love Rodney Smith's photography. I also love that Rodney is said to still watch nothing but movies made before 1947.

Fall 2011 Color Trend

"She comes in colors everywhere; 
She combs her hair 
She's like a rainbow 
Coming colors in the air 
Oh, everywhere 
She comes in colors"

Take a note from the Rolling Stones hit "She's a Rainbow" for fashion this season because this Fall is all about color! Fall fashion is full of new and unexpected pairings, new evolutions on  trends and fun, exciting new colors and prints. The Fall runways picked up where spring stopped and sent a riot of color. Reds and greens add a contemporary edge to classic camels while vivid primary and secondary pops break up black and brighten warm autumnal shades. 
 A bright maxi skirt paired with platform heels will lengthen your entire body and create a slender and tall silhouette.
 Try mixing in stripes with brights for a fun, classic look.
 Leopard is going to be one of Fall's biggest must-haves! Incorporate into your accessories with handbags, heels, skinny belts, etc.
 My favorite new trend of the season....colored denim!! I am absolutely in love with the AG Stevie Ankle in Kelly Green. Loving this trend but not sure how to pull it off? Try pairing your denim brights with a neutral colored top to balance out the color. However don't feel limited to only neutral shades, color-blocking, stripes, and small prints also work wonderfully with colored denim.

 Bright, vibrant heels are an easy way to brighten up an outfit and draw attention to your outfit. 
It actually is easy being green. My favorite color of the season! From vibrant kelly green to deep emerald, its the perfect way to brighten up any neutral winter tone. Try mixing in pops of green with skirts, heels, jeans, clutches, etc.
