Low Romance

Blouse and Shorts: Aria // Earrings: Baublebar // Necklace: Timewarp // Booties: Head Over Heels (sale)

Happy Mardi Gras!

I had all the ingredients to make this post: green, purple, and gold. In this case the gold was more like a canary yellow, but still you get the point. And always the psychic trendsetter that I would like to think I am, you may want to mark my words when I tell you that all variations of yellow will be quite haute this spring. Write it down and go buy yourself that yellow (or mustard) blazer, dress, or top.

Romantic blouses such as this one which have a little, or in other cases a lot, of ruffles are on trend. You will see quite of few in floral prints in the upcoming weeks.

And last but not least, I absolutely love this vintage coin necklace from Time Warp boutique on Government St., in Baton Rouge.

Until the next post!

XOXO,

Off the Shoulder off the Hook

Dress: Express // Sandals: Head Over Heals// Bag: Rebecca Minkoff // Earrings: Baublebar

I know it’s been a while. For obvious, and not so obvious, reasons July happened to be a very rough month. But we rise stronger and better from all those rough bumps and curveballs that this thing called life (RIP Prince) throws at us.

Now, if you do not own this summer an off the shoulder top or dress, to you I say in the words of Kimmy Schmidt: “where the H-E- double hockey sticks have you been?!” At least she has a better excuse (mole woman held hostage in a bunker by an unimaginably unattractive Jon Ham). When I tell you after not finding this denim off the shoulder beaut in our Mall of Louisiana, I immediately placed a call and an interstate dash to Tanger Mall to find this amazing dress. It’s denim people!! Denim!!!

Gladiator style sandals like these (on sale at Head Over Heals) make a consistent appearance every summer.

I hope you are having an amazingly fun hot summer. I am extremely grateful for those of you who continue to come back to Foster the Fashion for more posts.

I heart y’all!!!

XOXO,

DDC

WINTER GYPSY

This past semester of graduate school I took an Art History class that rocked my world. I am so proud and impressed with the work produced by students from the LSU College of Art and Design. I feel super cheesy about saying this but art students are too cool for school. They are in their own club, the you can’t sit with us club…and I loved every minute of it. I took these pictures in the area where some of their amazing works are displayed. They are fabulous!

Now, about this outfit. I was really channelling Rachel Zoe in this outfit, and it felt pretty Maj! This long navy maxi really brings out the bohemian side of me and the faux fur vest is just the icing on the cupcake…yes I just made that up.

The weather is quite gloomy which is perfect as I am currently obsessed with Sherlock Holmes. So I am really into this London type weather. The only annoying side effect is my horrible attempt at speaking with an english accent and wanting to say out loud “elementary my dear Watson,” which they never say on the show. Humbug. But Benedcit Cumberpatch (that name though!) is quite adorbs!! So that makes it all better.

Minus two days until Christmas! I wish you all very Happy and Fabulous Holidays!!! May you get everything you asked for on your list!!!

XOXO!

Dress: Odelyne // Belt: Express // Shoes: Jessica Simpson

All these festivals in the last couple of months have really inspired the bohemian side of me to come out. From crochet tops and denim shorts to lace dresses, I am all over the place wanting all these pieces.

I first saw this dress on Ashe from Dramatis Personae (I feel like Khaleesi saying this out loud) blog, and she looked absolutely stunning. After a compliment on twitter and a few words with the lovely Kelsi from My Style Smith! the impossible happened, I had the dress in pink!

It’s a lot of material but wearing it as Ashe wore it, with a belt, and these pumps took the dress to a whole different level. I wore it for a graduation and I thought I was overdressed yet I received compliments on it. So not a bad move. The best part is that you can also wear it with sandals and still look fabulous.

From the print to the material this Odelyne dress does not disappoint.

Until the next post!

XOXO!

Sweater: Peter Pilotto x Target // Skirt: H&M // Necklace: Stella and Dot //Shoes: Jessica Simpson

There are zero days left of cold weather and it is officially spring. So you know what that means huh? Awesome pastels, florals, denim is back in full throttle, fringes, and kimono tops are hot stuff. I’m not going to lie it was pretty warm wearing this sweater but I had my mind on styling this mid length skirt with it. I first saw this skirt in black on H&M’s website when their spring catalog came out in early January and it sold out in one day. That’s how big the demand is for this skirt. Wearing it makes you feel absolutely elegant and well dressed. Sure, did I feel like a chick from the 50’s? Yes. But that’s besides the point because this thing has pockets! I love pockets. They are especially amazing for bloggers who don’t know what to do with their hands; like me.

And can we talk about the color! This pink is everything this season. Call it what you want it’s simply beautiful.

I hope you are fashionable kicking into spring and getting ready for summer!

XOXO,

DC

Top: Bats on Tees // Denim: Genetic // Shoes: House of Harlow // Earrings: Baublebar

Maddie Louviere, a senior in LSU’s apparel design program, was very busy this week debuting her Fall/Winter 2014 collection as an emerging designer in New Orleans fashion week, featuring bags from local New Orleans retailer Bags on Tees. She also redesigned this tee from Bats on Tees, that are participating in the Big Idea on March 28th on Fulton St. in New Orleans. This tee has all the elements of her collection; the leather, the bug collar, the tab sleeved, and the cropped top.

It’s been a very long time since I rocked the cropped top but the minute I saw this it was a no brainer. It is so punk rock chic that I couldn’t take it. I put some mouse ears on and the rest is history. Maddie’s collection is so beautiful I can see myself wearing everything, check it out here.

The Bats on Tees contest for the best redesign look is live! You can vote for me here ! Thank you for all your votes so far!!!

Until the next post!

XOXO!

 

Pedram Couture Fashion Show

This past Saturday Amelie G magazine celebrated the launch of it’s winter issue in New Orleans with a release party featuring the designs of the very talented Pedram Pasha Taheri of Pedram Couture. Pedram Couture’s winter 2014 collection consisted of beautiful plunging necklines, plunging back dresses, full sequined dresses, and delicate lace overlays. The entire collection is stunning, sexy, with a touch of sophistication.

I feel very fortunate to have met Pedram while he was embarking on this journey, and to see his vision materialize in such a beautiful way. There are some great things unfolding for him in the near future and I can’t wait to witness all of his future successes.

Until the next post!

XO XO!
