Grab your best girlie and get wild.

Chunky Chunky

It was Marilyn Monroe that has been quoted as saying all women owe much thanks to whomever invented the high heel. And while this 5'2 fashion girlie fully agrees, we owe praise to that great inventor of the platform as well. All that is platformed footwear really has come some way since the Cher and her Clueless clique stomped down the halls of their high school as though it were a New York runway. 

Not only is this a key style for the fall, but so attractive about this footwear is the longevity of the trend. Taking inspiration from the 70's this spring, the platform transitions into the fall as evident from collections from Marc Jacobs and Marni styled with classic body skimming sheath dresses and floor skimming wide-legged trousers. Invest in these heels now as the silhouette will not only be relevant for season to come and work with frocks, distressed denim and midi-length skirts.

I Like My Martini Pink

As the summer starts to wrap up (*tear*sigh*kicking*screaming*) take some inspiration from one of Felicity&Fritz's favourite Canadian clothing lines - Pink Martini. With hints of pretty pastel colours on their light pieces perfect for layering for these cool summer nights, treat yourself to a Martini. Make it Pink. A Pink Martini. Yep. We insist.

Almost Famous

However many years ago before my aunt got married, she gifted me a selection of her most loved VHS (yes, VHS...ahhh the good old days) movies including 10 Things I Hate About You, Notting Hill and Almost Famous. I swooned over Heath Ledger in 10 Things, tried to understand Hugh Grant's accent and became totally mesmerized with all that wavy beach hair, crop topped and flared denim. (and I mean really, at eleven years old, it's a good thing it was the fashion I was focusing on rather than the *cough* sex, drugs and rock and roll....literally).

Aaaaanyhow, I digress. The runway shows of S/S11 provided plenty of Almost Famous inspiration in the form of all that is flared and wide-legged. While there is the notion that this ever returning style will date you back to the 70's, there is a way dear fashion girlies to wear this trend without looking like you're "supporting the band". 

Topping your flares with a silky shirt takes the look from casual to sophisticated.
