Top Fall Fashion Trends for 2012
Style Experts Comment On The Most
Wearable Trends of the Season
Plus, Enter to Win a Miche Bag!
Summer is quickly coming to a close and that means it's time to put away the sundresses, cuttoff shorts and warm weather footwear in exchange for scarves, tights and layers). While Fall 2012's trends were determined on international runways months ago, not all designer looks are exactly wearable (or affordable.) Fashion experts and founders of the popular online marketplace, Because I Shop Too Much, Kaitlyn and Lisa Fergus have some tips on their favorite trends that, they say, any woman can pull off.
Blazers: Tailored, fitted blazers add a classic touch to any outfit. Try pairing a standard black blazer with a sequin mini skirt or cocktail dress for perfect mix of feminine and masculine.
Jewel-Tone Bags: Choose a classic structured bag in a vibrant jewel-tone color to instantly update your wardrobe. Maroon, emerald and sapphire blue are just a few favorites for fall.
Leather Leggings: A staple this season, Lisa suggests pairing these edgy pants with a silk top or chunky knit for a luxe look of layered textures. While many designers are offering leather leggings in a variety of colors, black is your best, most versatile bet.
Peplum Tops: Undoubtedly the season's hottest silhouette, the peplum shape accentuates the waist for look that is flattering on almost anyone. Try balancing out the feminine flair by pairing it with skinny jeans or a pencil skirt.
Mustard-Color Denim: Colored jeans are here to stay! "Mustard is deliciously rich hue - making it the perfect color for fall," says Kaitlyn. Bright but not overwhelming, mustard-color jeans look especially good with shades of white, ivory and camel. Pairing with black can also be chic, but try to stray from horizontal stripes so you don't resemble a bumble bee!
Pop of Pink: Amp up neutrals with pops of pink. Vibrant hot pink and shades of grey (charcoal or dove) are a particularly striking combination.
Old World Elegance: Touches of texture, elegant embroidery and a little bit of fur bring a sophisticated, almost aristocratic feel to jackets, dresses and more. Not ready to dive into this trend? Slightly embellished outwear is a great way to dip your toe before taking the plunge.
Now that you've gotten the full scoop on the top trends for fall, it's time to go shopping. Because I Shop Too Much (http://www.bistm.com/) is a great place to start building your wardrobe for the season.

She She Me's Favorite Things
Miche Bag — My Favorite Fashion Innovation!
Miche Bag is an innovative accessories company that sparked a fashion revolution by giving women the ability to switch the style and color of their handbags to match their outfits in just 3 seconds or less. Starting with a Base Bag, women can change the exterior of a Miche Bag simply by switching the outer “Shell” that firmly attaches over the Base Bag through the use of invisible magnets — there is never a need to move contents from one bag to another!
Miche appeals to every woman who wants to stay on-trend and fashion-forward while still keeping an eye on her budget. This unique concept just may be the best thing to happen to women since waterproof mascara! Miche is available through thousands of amazing and dedicated Representatives across the country and around the world, and is primarily marketed in a Party setting and through sales on individual Representatives’ websites.
When I first heard about Miche I was intrigued. Lucky for me, my good friend Patty is a founding member of Miche, and she sent me a Miche Demi bundle to test out and review. The bundle consists of a base bag (I chose the Demi, which is a roomy hobo style bag) and two different shells, along with a selection of different style handles. The selection of shells is amazing — so many to choose from and so very affordable! I chose the Kendra and the Hope. (I especially love the Hope shell because a portion of the proceeds from the sales of these shells goes directly to cancer research. So not only are you being chic and stylish, but you are helping a sister in need!)
When I received my bundle I immediately snapped the Hope shell into place on the base bag and voila! Instant chic! I've been using the bag for the past week and I have to admit that I adore it. It is the perfect size and shape — not too big, not too small, but juuuuuust right. The base bag features one zippered pocket, one small open pocket, two medium pockets, one cell phone pocket and two pen holders. There is also a top zipper closure for added security. In addition, the Hope shell has two exterior side pockets which are perfect for my car keys and a tube of lipgloss. You can also get different style handles and shoulder straps to attach to any of the bags for added convenience.
Also, Miche just introduced their new "luxe" line of shells — gorgeous styles and colors with a touch of shine!
Not only is Miche a fantastic fashion accessory, but it is also a smart business opportunity. With Miche, you really can have it all: A rewarding and fun career, and the time you want with your family. Do as much or as little as you want. On your own terms. Your way. With no limitations. Yes you can! When you become a Miche Representative you are in control of your own destiny — and you do it with panache and style.
