Fall Fashion Preview

Fall fashion is upon us! “WHAT!” you might be thinking? It’s only the third week in August. We’ve only gotten through the Royal Birth, and you want us to think about Fall fashion! Why yes, I do because it is HOT!

So I went to talk with Doyenne of Fashion at Detour Salon in Encinitas Danielle. They have quite the boutique inside Detour Encinitas, carrying Free People, BB Dakota, Jack, Beulah (one of my favorites), Chaser just to name a few clothing lines. They are also the only boutique in San Diego that carries the very sexy Acacia swim line.

In addition to clothes, sexy swim clothes, they carry jewelry such as Lilly Girl, Bliss and innumerable handbags for you to come in and peruse and purchase.

So back to my conversation with the Doyenne of Fashion, Danielle. Let me tell you, this lady knows her fashion, and on the fashion horizon there are some very cool things coming.

The first thing that Danielle said is that we will see a lot of white this winter. That really surprised me and I silently thanked the Gods that I’d gotten off that last 30lbs and just signed up for a gym! But to perhaps your, uh, not so tuned parts, my favorite part of winter is back too! Super sized coats! Oh yes!!!


So I asked besides white what the fall colors would be and she told me there would be a lot of blues, ranging from cobalt, sky, even gray blue all of which piqued my interest.

Now I know a lot of readers out there might be too young to remember grunge the first time around but I do, so my ears perked up when Danielle said that grunge was back! We will see it reflected in some of my favorite designers (who I look for madly in second hand stores!) BCBG, Missoni, Givenchy. It will be interesting to see the grunge of 1991-93 reappears in 2013.

I asked Danielle about what I refer to as “dressy” clothes. She told me that the fall suit is a pencil skirt, with a fitted shirt, worn with a jacket, with some embellishment. The interesting part about that is the colors are metallic. Which I really like.

Danielle didn’t stop there, why there were bags to discuss! This fall, we will be seeing a more structured bag. What excites me is the introduction of both the doctor bag and the camera bag! This blogger is all about fashion and bags! Obviously a great majority of us do not attend the New York and Paris Fashion shows, although it would be amazing.
What Danielle and I have tried to do is give you a snapshot as to what you see in the magazines and then go on and make it your own. Myself, I mix vintage with boutique but take fall fashion and make it your own. Now go on, rock those jeans with an awesome top and whatever shoes you want. Be your own woman. Sending much love to you from this Blogger.
