Listen up! If you are not following this little girl you better get with it!
I’m sure all of us have been down an Instagram rabbit hole or two before, but hey those are the best ways to stumble upon gems, right? Well I recently ended up on the page of the coolest 7-year old on the planet, Coco. I’ll give you a moment to go search and follow her……..yes, I know, I KNOW! Its not everyday you see a child with the wardrobe of YOUR dreams. Commes des Garcons, Fendi, Gucci, Louis Vuitton x Supreme, the list goes on and on.
Hailing from Harajuku, Japan, this street style star adopted her love of fashion around the age of 3. Her parents are owners of the vintage clothing store Funktique in Tokyo, check it on Instagram @funktiquetokyo, so there is no doubt fashion is in her blood.
As most parents do on IG, Misato, Coco’s mom, began posting photos of her daughter in these fabulous ensembles. Followers took notice and requested Coco have her own account STAT, thus the birth of @coco_pinkprincess. It may seem bizarre for a child so young to have so much…”clout on the gram” for lack of a better term, but her audience loves it! In just two years her follower count has skyrocketed from about 12k last year to 400k+ followers to date.
Being featured in top publications such as Vogue and Elle, Coco exudes style that I wish I had. Her innocent and adorable face can draw just about anyone in! Misato shares with us that her daughter’s focus is building her platform for now, but Coco has dreams of becoming a hairdresser, a chef, or a patissier. Her fashion-conscious looks scream rebellion which keeps followers coming back for more. She’s definitely my newest fashion muse.
Even though the autumn chill is settling in, don’t pack away your summer pieces yet. For those of you who want to hold on to the warm weather just a tad longer figure out how you can use those clothes as transitional pieces. Bomber jackets are one of the easiest ways to take your wardrobe from summer to fall. Whether light, heavy or medium-weight, bombers are great for completing a simple or layered outfit.

High-Low hemlines are popping up everywhere! Tanks, skirts, and dresses are incorporating this style in many silhouettes .
Tops: High-low tops are easy to pair with a simple pair of jeans, or leggings. Remember the top itself is a statement, so try not to overbear it with loads of jewelry. Contrasting the top with a bright or a dark bottom will be sure to enhance your asymmetrical style.
Skirts: High-low skirts are a great way to show a little leg. This trend works on ALL body types, for instance for petite women, this style can elongate your frame, and for curvy girls, colors and different cuts of the skirt can highlight and flatter you in the right places.

This year’s fashion week seemed more popular than compared to the years before. There was so much hype and excitement in the air that it caused NYC to get plagued with a bomb threat! But that didn’t stop the shows from going on.
There were a few styles that caught my eye this season.
1. Seafoam! I started to obsess over this color this summer and there was a reason why. This year’s Spring/Summer shows oozed seafoam shades. Whether it was a seafoam accent, print, or used as a contrast it was somehow worked into the garments of many designers such as Rachel Comey, Diane von Furstenberg, Richard Chai and many more.
2. High-waisted shorts another one of my summer obsession brought to the catwalk. Silk, printed, spandex or solid shorts are something that you all will see alot of next summer.
3. Peplum tops- didn’t see this coming. Peplum is a short gathered, flared, or pleated fabric attached to the end of a womans garments: dresses, tops, jackets, etc. A great influence from the 40s.
Those are my top 3 trend watches for Spring/Summer ’12. What do you think? Would you be sporting any of these looks next summer?
Pairing this outfit with any kind of high boots would pull this outfit together. Adding gold accents would be the perfect finisher to this look.
Psst – For all you crafty readers out there, you can even make this shirt yourself! Find a denim shirt of your choice and just snip the shoulders off and Voila! If you don’t want frayed shoulders surging the raw edges would be the best thing to do.
This is a cute little trend started last fall. Wedges and socks ? Yes my dear your eyes are correct.
This look can be worn in the summer or autumn time. Wearing strappy wedges are the best with bold colored socks or opaque tights.Are you someone who racks up on summer sandals and not winter shoes, NO PROBLEM! As long as you have at least 3 versatile wedge heels you can wear them with socks or tights on a chilly autumn night or a hot summer day.
