Pretty Little Platforms & Chunky Block Heels

Heads up, Dolls! 

The 70s are still here in a big, big way, and you know what that means for footwear? Platforms and chunky heels! 

I am a HUGE platform lover (my hubby not so much) so this continued trend makes me even more eager to shop the Fall racks. Platforms are SUPER comfy and easy to wear with any ensemble. From barely there up to sky-high, there is a platform for all, regardless of style. I'm even kind of into the platform sneaker, which adds just a of edginess to your casual ensemble.


Not as into the platform look, and looking for something along the same lines - but with more of a heel? Try the chunky heel trend. This comfier-than-a-stiletto, oh-so 70's style, will give your legs more of the elongated look.


Platforms and block heels are quite easy to pull off in muted tones, so anyone can jump on this train; but if you're a bold fashionista looking to be "right on trend" then give them a go in the following colors/prints (as seen on the runways):

  • snake print
  • patchwork
  • gold or silver metallic 
  • overly embellished

Fall & Winter White-Out

Hello Dolls,

We all know that the "No White After Labor Day" rule no longer exists, which means you can continue to rock your white jeans throughout the winter. White sweaters can keep you chic and cozy, and of course who doesn't love a classic white button down that is perfection for day-to-night ensemble transitions.

UPDATE to the Fall/Winter white trend, that is flooding the runways: pair shade of white with another.

It seems natural to want to pair one white clothing item, to another of the exact same color. This is VERY hard to do! All whites are not created equal (literally) and thus matching them exactly is near impossible, and can make for a disaster in your overall look. On the other hand, if you intentionally pair white pants, with an off white top, your overall look will be effortless chic!


Tip: bright whites can wash out some skin tones, so play it safe by having a cream or ivory color on top. 

Once you've mastered mixing your whites, it's time to accessorize. Keep them simple and neutral (think beige, black or camel). If you're a more fashion forward fashionista -  try animal print for a bold edge that will still compliment nicely.

Now...if the cooler weather would just get here already!
