Bey Day

Dress: Topshop from Nordstrom //Shoes: Head Over Heals // Jewelry: Dillard’s

I’ve been wanting to do an ode to Queen B ever since Lemonade dropped last year. It took some serious cojones to drop such a heavy visual album like that. And when you think about the body of work she has created all you can do is bow down to a true queen. And then 4:44 drops and I can’t even deal! I mean….LEGACY, LEGACY, LEGACY.

So when one of my co-workers gifted me this bat (which I know what you are thinking, it’s an odd gift but when it comes to gifts I welcome them all) all I had to do was find the dress to lemonade the heck out of a post. Obvi that the dress is not Cavalli like in the video but it is the chicest brand around, Topshop.

I keep telling you guys that I have some sort of fashion ESP when it comes to predicting colors and trends so write this down when I tell you that mustard will be a pretty big deal this fall. Gah’on, take notes.

At any rate I know it’s a sort of a two for one special on September 4th but time is of the essence (cliche; sorry I ain’t sorry).

Happy Bey Day!

Until the next post,

XOXO

Ruffles + Stripes

Top: Wanderlust by Abby / Jeans: Nordstrom Rack/ Earrings: Stella and Dot

There’s been some serious shoulder interest since last summer. And going strong this spring, summer, and fall, is the off the shoulder, one shoulder, cold shoulder trend. It’s all about showing a little skin and showing off those shoulders. Shake those shoulders!

Ruffles are also big right now and TRUST  that they will go strong through the fall. Whether they are asymmetrical, diagonal, or vertical, ruffles will be everywhere. Another obsession of mine are wide leg jeans and stripes. I think we are all obsessed with stripes.

We are about to transition into fall so it’s time to put away the sandals, the pom poms, and take out those boots and sweaters. You know it’s fall when Starbucks starts pushing the PSL ads, and there is pumpkin flavor overload everywhere you turn.

So cheers to the fall y’all!

Until the next post,

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!

V Day

Hay girl (or boy) hay it’s Valentines Day!

In past years I have griped of no one wearing red or pinks on this day but this year I find myself being a little hypocritical. Let me explain. We all understand the over commercialization of the holidays. We get it. But it certainly gives bloggers, social media coordinators, and communications professionals something to post.

As I was shopping for others yesterday I found myself telling those helping me find something “I don’t want anything too big, or too expensive. I honestly think this day is a little silly.” I think morally we should always strive (lord knows I am NOT perfect and that my attitude is not always 100) to think of others, offer help when needed, and give without any expectations of the other person giving you something in return. That’s the way it should be. Now, do not get me wrong because the flip slide to this story is that I strongly believe in establishing boundaries and respect among friends. And you know sometimes people tend to over care, over share, and over step. Word to the wise. #stayinyourlane

BUT…. that is not what this post is about. Last year the off the shoulder trend dominated the summer and it is fascinating how strongly it has transgressed through the winter/fall. This winter, still, it is all about the shoulders. Whether it is off the shoulder or a cold shoulder, it is undeniable that this style is a dominant one right now.

I love everything about this topshop top. The style, the powder pink color, and the trumpet sleeves. The opposite of skinny jeans are these high waisted bell bottom jeans, which if worn with a high enough heel elongates your body. And I am obsessed with the tassel trend in jewelry. I find myself in the constant hunt for tassel necklaces and earrings. These hot pink ones just give me life.

Anyways, I have said too much. On the real and for realzies my wish for you is to have a wonderful day filled with love and laughter. And hey, a gift or two here and there would not be so bad, eh?

Until the next post, CIAO CIAO loves. Happy Valentines Day!

XOXO,

P.S. How beautiful was Beyoncé’s performance at the Grammy’s!!! She was a byzantine beauty and a goddess in her own right. And Blue Ivy stole my heart!!!

One of the most rewarding things blogging provides me is the opportunity to meet so many talented, driven, ambitious, and forward thinking people. And it doesn’t hurt that all of them are beautiful inside and out.

My involvement with Baton Rouge Fashion week for two years in a row placed new faces and labels on my radar. My favorite look of this year’s show was the t-shirt line chokolat creme. Their 2016 runway look is what I am recreating on this post. I love the message of empowerment and strength represented in this brand. And every queen needs a queen bee necklace. This set is from Olivia Palermo’s collab with Baublebar, and it is everything as is she.

Until the next post!

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

A floppy hat fall

Don’t you just love the Fall? The weather changes, people tend to be in better moods (generally), and you can layer and wear those cute knee high boots boxed somewhere in your closet. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year. I will waste no time and tell you my predictions for hot fall trends: fringe, floppy hats, culotte pants, and covers that simulate ponchos.

I was waiting to publish this post hoping that it could go along with yesterday’s story about local fashion bloggers in LSU’s The Daily Reveille. Thinking back, not knowing the exact publishing date of this article was the best thing.

The lovely Brittany Hagoort interviewed me three weeks ago and ever since then I was stressing about the when, the how, and the what. When would the story come out, how will it look, and what would people think once they read the article. Everyday I walked by the stands worrying about this soon to be not yet existing article. Yesterday’s front page headline was “They see me rolling,” which happens to be one of my favorite tracks (I also imagine President Barry O rolling out of the White House to this song..just FYI) And later that morning a tweet from The Daily Reveille took me by surprise. I played it cool, went to class and on my way back picked up a copy of the paper. Only to pick up ten more copies from two different stands later that day. And there I was. It’s an amazing feeling to see your story on paper, it really is. No press release to announce that I have blog, and come January 2016 it will be four years!!! Time flies when you are having fun.

So now I get to freak out and say in my Oprah voice “I’m in the REVEILLEEEEEEEEE!!! You get a paper, you get a paper, and you get a paper!” You can read the full story here.

Special thanks go out to Brittany Hagoort for doing such an amazing job creating this article quoting a few of my favorite fashion ladies in the area, and Nicholas Martino for being the photographer who saved the day! And my readers, wherever you are and whoever you are THANK YOU!!!

Until the next post!

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!
