Grammys 2012 Trends

The 54th annual Grammys took place last night, and even though it is music's biggest awards show, the tone was very sad due to the unexpected passing of Whitney Houston (RIP). Even though I missed out on watching the show, I quickly had to check up on the red carpet fashion. There were a couple of trends that I noticed, and I am impressed!

S/S '12 Trend: Floral Print Denim

So one of my girlfriends messaged me to ask me on my opinion on a pair of Citizen of Humanity pants with floral print on them, and I was caught off guard a bit because I've never seen nor heard such a thing. When I saw a pic of them, I thought to myself, 'they are totally not my style'! Then I began to browse around to look for alternatives because you just never know; I might  like this trend, and eureka! I spent a good 25 minutes helping my friend look for floral print denim, and I am in love! See, the wonderful thing about fashion is that if you have an open mind, you will love everything!

Mary Katrantzou for TopShop

A little while back, I discovered Mary Katrantzou's designs at The Room in The Bay on Queen St., and was amazed by the craftsmanship, as well as elaborate beaded detailing of one of her skirts that I happen to come across by. Unfortunately, I was unable to take a picture of the skirt, and it is forever embedded in my mind. Although my wallet can't afford any of Mary Katrantzou's beautiful works of art, I am delighted to find out that TopShop has collaborated with the Greek designer to offer affordable; less wallet-cringing options that will be sure to make any fashionista drool.
