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

This week: OBRFW 3

obrfw_bignightobrfw_bignight_back

It is surreal how much I feel time slipping through my hands (btw great start to a future Mariah Carey song, dontcha think? I heart you Mimi!). In all honesty it seems like just the other day, I alongside a group of beautiful and talented ladies served as judges for the selection of models for Oneofakind Baton Rouge Fashion week season 3.

Today, OBRFW 3 is rolling onto its second day showcasing BARE, a sexy take on fashion that introduces an array of edgy, exotic, looks for your eyes to feast on. Tickets for tonight are sold out but if you want to “dip it and do it,” like my fave talk show host Wendy Williams does in the club, you can still get tickets for “The Big Night” here. “The Big Night” is when all the fashion kids come out and play, and “Yaaasss honey Yaassss,” I will be there to say “How you doing?”

XOXO,

WINTER GYPSY

IMG_3695 IMG_3698 IMG_3701 IMG_3717 IMG_3709IMG_3736IMG_3725 IMG_3729 IMG_3731 IMG_3771 IMG_3777 IMG_3750IMG_3789 IMG_3788Dress: H&M // Vest: Aria (old)// Shoes: Steve Madden/ Bracelets: Sosis //Necklaces: Stella and Dot

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!

Attitude Couture

Fashion tends to be so serious sometimes. You look at some look books and you see hints of a smile, but you don’t see people having fun. Tell me about it. I don’t know how to smile for a shot to save my life. This is not the case for all the shots that I have seen for this designer. Attitude Couture is the creation of New Orleans based designer Robin Spindt. With more than forty years of experience in the fashion business, Robin has created one of a kind gowns for that special occasion. Whether you are going to prom, a ball, graduation, or a wedding, Attitude Couture has that perfect dress for you. And she is expanding her collection to include wedding dresses. You can browse and shop all her looks here! As always, I am so proud of local talent.

My personal favorite look is the girl in the red dress with the sneakers! That’s too quiche!

Until the next post!

XOXO!

IT COLOR: DUSTY PINK

IMG_2583IMG_2586IMG_2591IMG_2600

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,

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!

 

OBRFW Fashion Show

This past Saturday Baton Rouge fashionistas dressed in black and white to attend the Oneofakind Baton Rouge Fashion Week (OBRFW) fashion show hosted by the very talented and charismatic, Chenese Lewis (pictured above) . The show featured the collections from OBRFW founder Brandon Campbell, LSU fashion design alumni, Juju’s boutique, just to name a few.

It was a lively night with the Jupiter downtown parade in full swing outside of the Louisiana State Museum, and the amazing view of our state capitol serving as a back drop for the fashion show.  And I have to admit that everyone there looked beautiful!

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!

A Target must have

Who doesn’t LOVE Target? Am I right?!!! The prices are comparable to Walmart, no long lines, and an amazing selection of items. I am there at least once a week. The designer collaborations are also amazing, and this year 3.1 Phillip Lim is the designer collaborating with Target. Missoni collaborated with Target last year (I think) and the collection sold out immediately. But this sweater should be on your list! I first saw it on Jessica Alba and it was so adorable, but everything looks great on her right? And a week ago it was on Nikki Hilton. It’s celebrity coveted, and approved, for $29.99. And you need a comfy sweater for winter! I was going to wait and do a post with it on but why should I hold good fashionable information.

The link below the picture should take you directly to the item on target’s website, there is ONE small left in Target on Siegen lane in Baton Rouge. Just FYI. They are going fast!!

Have a fun weekend!!! XO!
