Top Trends from Milan Fashion Week Spring 2013

Milan’s Spring 2013 Fashion Week was amazing as well, so I figured I had to post a few of the best trends from the shows over there! I feel like a lot of these shows were more opulent and embellished than those in New York and London. They seemed to take on a “world” trend from 40’s style tea-dresses from America to Chinese Dynasty designs. All I know is they were all incredible!

1. Open-Back Dress at Gucci

2. Mirrored Sunglasses at MGSM

3. Tea Dresses at Bottega Veneta

4. Delicate Fringe at Alberta Ferretti 

5. Eastern-Inspired Embroidery at Emilio Pucci

Tapestry Trend Accessories!

The tapestry trend is a fun way to work some color and print into your wardrobe this fall. Adding these types of accessories makes this trend easy to wear and doesn’t take over the whole outfit. They add just the perfect touch! The pricey Dolce & Gabbana clutch below is an inspiration piece, with it’s beautiful embroidery and glittering closure snap! It is gorgeous and completely epitomizes the trend!

Ann Taylor: Bright Pink Top and Scribble Pants

So I decided to dress up for work finally, and barely got anything done today! So much for that, right? Our computer system was down most of the day so it wasn’t my fault! At least I feel like I looked the part. 🙂

Ann Taylor has some really cute pieces for work apparel right now, and you can totally turn them into casual wear or “going-out” outfits with just a few little adjustments.

So here is my bright work attire for the day! It was so windy outside and I felt it fitting to take pictures in my office anyway. (Sorry for the mess, we’re moving offices soon!)

Top – Ann Taylor; Pants – Ann Taylor; Shoes – Michael Kors (old); Bracelet – Anthropologie; Earrings – Anthropologie; Watch – Michael Kors (old); Bag – Marc by Marc Jacobs.

Ahhh windy hair!!!
