Fashion Fix: Burberry

December 2, 2010

Hello Flights of Fancy readers!  I didn’t realize it until a few days ago, but my internship here with Betsywhite has come to an end.  It has been 12 weeks since I began creating inspiration boards and informing you all of the approaching fashion trends.  It has been a lot of fun, and I hope you all gained a bit of inspiration from all my boards.

To end my internship, I wanted to focus on one of my personal favorite designers.  That designer happens to be Burberry.  For my last fashion fix, I based this inspiration board off of Burberry’s Prorsum Spring/Summer 2011 Collection.  In the board you will find “right off the runway” looks, celebrities wearing the fabulous designer brand, and a few of the brands advertisements.

I hope you all have enjoyed the work I’ve done with Flights of Fancy!  Be sure to continue reading the site in hopes to find inspiration of your own.

Best Wishes to you all!

Fashion Fix: Shoes, Shoes and more Shoes!

November 18, 2010

After a discussion amongst some friends and I in my English Lit class on shoes, it only made sense to focus on the one accessory that all women LOVE!  Of course you all know about my obsession from a previous post. In our discussion, the girls and I talked about what our “dream shoe” was. Manolo Blahnik and Christian Louboutin were both mentioned… of course. I don’t know of a single woman who would disagree with me when I say that they are the epitome of stunning, luxury shoes.  If there is, please let me know.

For this fashion fix, I’ve put together some of the Spring/Summer 2011 hottest shoe trends that have graced the runways in New York, Milan, and Paris. Hope you enjoy!

Fashion Fix: Spring in Season

November 11, 2010

You might be wondering why I keep bringing out all things that revolve around the approaching Spring season.  Well, in the fashion world it is always best to be ahead of the game.  Designers have already launched their Spring/Summer 2011 collections at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, and they have selected what is going to be hot and what’s not.

For this inspiration board, I wanted to focus on all the beautiful colors of Spring.  And again, with a little help from Pantone I’ve selected the following colors as inspiration: Beeswax, Blue Curacao, Honeysuckle, and Lavender.

Hope you enjoy!

Fashion Fix: Inspired by Pantone Peapod

November 4, 2010

For this week’s fashion fix I decided to switch things up a bit.  Instead of just focusing on one specific color from Pantone’s Spring 2011 Color Report, I decided to select one color and branch off of it.  Because let’s be honest, not everyone can pull off the exact hue that Pantone provides, some of us need to lighten the shade up, or darken it in order to achieve the right look.

With that being said, I’ve selected the color Peapod.  According to Pantone, it is a yellow-green hue that is vibrant and happy, which is what spring is all about.  In the board below you will find different accessories, dresses, and sketches that represent various hues of this color.  My personal favorite… the Hermes Birkin bag in the top left corner.  I absolutely love EVERYTHING Hermes!

Hope you enjoy!
