Affordable Celebrity Fashion Trends That Won’t Break the Bank

Now that Fashion Week is over and Fall is coming it is time to put away the bathing suits and get ready to dress like the stars while still staying on a budget. Some new ideas that came from the fashion shows are to incorporate that striped Oxford paired with a gold two piece suit for evening wear. As the weather gets colder make sure to extend the use of your favourite summer sun dress by layering with a cashmere Polo neck underneath it. For your handbag the look is to wear it around your shoulder and tucked under the arm. This look works for medium and long lengths. It looks like bare legs are back in this fall and is great with any two piece shirt suit.

For belts this year, Prada, is coming out with a high wasted corset belt to wear with your summer dress and matching shoes. What a great look. Denim is still in with the fall coming up feel at home in those denim jeans and jackets. Colors are bright and very eclectic mixing stripes and solids and prints as well.

Be comfortable above all fashion should not hurt.

A Brief History of Flats

With another fashion season comes yet another fashion transformation. Gone are the haughty heels of yesterday to be replaced with the fabulous flats of today, and maybe tomorrow. After years of derision we have finally decided that flat shoes are worth another look. However, looking is not the only thing customers are doing. They are also buying and wearing.

Not only are flats practical for everyday wear but they are now a hot button, high trend fashion necessity for all types of occasions. Today everywhere you go ladies are sporting flat shoes while leaving their heels to gather dust under the bed. Whether they are slip-on, straps, pumps or lace-ups there is a pair of flats to suit every mood. With a recent injection of creativity wearing flats no longer means feeling dowdy or inelegant. On the contrary, flats now mean flair with functionality, but what is the origin of flats and how have they developed over the years?
The well-to-do ladies of ancient Egypt wore flat sandals constructed from bejeweled papyrus leaves that gave their feet some flair.

In medieval times the flat shoe transitioned into a long and pointy invention called “poulaines”. Something that was interesting about these was that the length of the sandal announced the wearer’s social status. The longer the sandals were, the greater the standing of the wearer. The common folk were under orders to wear poulaines of no more than 6 inches in length while knights and barons wore longer versions.
