Celebrities are Loving: Bright Yellow Dresses

Spring is finally here and which means warmer weather, Easter, and fun colors like pastels and brights! Lately, celebrities have been loving bright yellow dresses. Yellow dresses really make you look girly yet simple. The color also looks great on almost every skintone! Vanessa Hudgens, Emmy Rossum, and Lauren Conrad are loving this trend, are you?

New Collection: Derek Lam for Kohl's

I'm in love with Kohl's already, but now that they're introducing yet another designer collaboration, I love them even more. Derek Lam's newest collection is ready to hit Kohl's stores on April 5. This collection will be very affordable, with prices ranging from $38-$88. The design palette contains mostly neutrals, blues and greens with both prints and solids and was inspired by Brazil. 

Celebrities have already gotten their hands on Lam's new collection. Blake Lively wore Lam's striped tunic, while Megan Hilty sported a flowy maxi, and Emmy Rossum rocked his boatneck dress.

Kohl's has already done designer collaborations with Jennifer Lopez, Rock & Republic, and my favorite, Lauren Conrad. I love Kohl's because they ALWAYS have markdowns and they send out discounts almost weekly for around 20% off of your entire purchase. If you haven't checked out Kohl's yet, this is the perfect time to see what they're all about. They also sell home goods, jewelry, makeup, fragrances and much more!

Here are some of my favorite designs for the collection. I love the bright blue and green solids! Also, watch the video below to get a behind the scenes look at the collection and learn about what got Derek Lam inspired for this collection. Check out Derek Lam's full collection and tell me which pieces you'll be getting!

Are you a Derek Lam fan? Have you even shopped at Kohl's before?

WWIB: RVN Geometric Print Dress

I'm in love with this fitted RVN Geometric Print Dress right now and apparently so are all the celebrities! Ashley Tisdale wore a black and red version, while Jamie Chung and Cher Lloyd opted for a white and black version. They all looking stunning, but the question is, Who Wore It Best?

Cher Lloyd; Ashley Tisdale; Jamie Chung

Although I think that they all look fabulous in this dress, I think that Jamie Chung pulls it off the best. Although I like the red version on Ashley, the black and white version really pops in the picture, and Jamie's styling was perfect for the dress - simple and effortless.

Do you want this dress for yourself? Intermix offers a white and cobalt blue version (pictured below).

Do you agree with me? Who do you think wore this fitted dress the best?

Currently Trending: Black and White

First of all, happy first day of Spring to everyone! Unfortunately, I woke up to the pouring rain this morning in Orlando, so I'm missing the sunshine. 

Anyways, a huge trend this year is black and white. There was plenty of black and white looks featured on the runways for Spring 2013 collections and now it seems like everyone is catching onto this "white hot" style. It's such an easy trend to pull off because the colors are so accessible. Checkers, stripes, polka dots, patterns and solids! Whether you're wearing a white t-shirt with black pants, or a fun, patterned dress, it's a look that everyone can pull off!

Check out these runway looks below from these designer's Spring 2013 Ready-to-Wear collections.

Michael Kors Spring 2013 RTW
Marc Jacobs Spring 2013 RTW

Celebrities love this trend too!

Olivia Palermo in a (very pale pink) and black Dior dress. 

And now, you can pull off this black and white trend with affordable pieces like the ones shown below!

***I actually just bought these for myself and I love them both! 

Do you love the black and white trend? What are your favorite black and white looks?

Friday Favorites: 03/08/2013

Lauren Conrad appeared in Miami on Saturday for Cotton's 24 Hour Runway Show. She wore two girly and bright dresses that I loved! The yellow dress is a Skaist Taylor Poplin dress, and the red is Black Halo Eve dress. She's also wearing Aldo wedges in both looks, and as always, her hair and makeup look flawless!

One of my all time favorite designers, Elie Saab, showed off his new Fall 2013 Ready-to-Wear collection on Wednesday in Paris. He's known for his gorgeous and intricate details on evening gowns (like Sandra Bullock wore at the Oscars) and this collection was no different. I would die if I ever had the opportunity to wear one of his designs!

If you haven't heard the goat editions of your favorite pop songs, I strongly advise that you watch the Taylor Swift edition above and then go on YouTube yourself to watch more. I couldn't stop laughing when I saw this (and still can't). You'll never be able to listen to this song the same!

Finally, congrats to the winner of the Rent the Runway gift card giveaway, Cecille! If you missed out on my very first giveaway, don't worry! I plan to have more in the future, and if you're interested in renting designer dresses, I really suggest that you check out Rent the Runway for yourself.
