Valentine’s Day has come and gone and what are you left with? Dead roses. Not me. I would rather have a bottle of rose perfume I can wear all year long. Make that several bottles of rose perfumes. Truth is, I can take or leave a dozen roses but I cannot resist rose fragrances.
The 89th Annual Academy Awards Red Carpet Fashion: Nicole Kidman, Meryl Streep, Halle Berry, Taraji P. Henson, Emma StoneFebruary 27, 2017
Political statements and media mistakes aside, what was there to take away from this year’s Academy Awards? Many of the star power names didn’t show (OK, Natalie Portman had a good reason but where were all the big name presenters?) and many of the stars that did show up left bland impressions on the red carpet. As for The 89th Annual Academy Awards red carpet fashion, boring gowns ran the gamut, with the biggest trends being black, white, and more black.
Yeah yeah, global warming is a myth. The groundhog and his shadow are in a constant, never-ending battle for deciding the future. Whatever the case may be (and however long it may take), the weather is getting warmer. Minus Chicago and a sudden snowfall this weekend, the skies are getting sunnier and the days are heating up. For a few…
We decided to have some fun in the name of fashion this fashion week on our Instagram account (@fountainof30). Why can’t a 40-something lifestyle blogger walk the fashion week runways? Carol and and I had the brilliant idea to overlay my head on models walking the runway during New York Fashion Week Fall ’17 and now we are continuing it through London and Milan.
Let’s face it, most beauty trends for fashion shows are for just that, show. They can be very extreme or very minimalist (so you actually look at the clothes and not the models). However there are some beauty and hair trends from NYFW Fall ’17 that actually make it to real life from these shows. Just like you would not…
Who said loungewear is only for the bedroom? Victoria Beckham takes the streets during London Fashion Week in a loungewear inspired silk ensemble and you can do the same! Taking your pajamas and making them into street worthy looks has become such a common thing to see. Who doesn’t want to feel comfy and look chic at the same time?
In this episode Lauren and Joan discuss health in your 40s. Both women have endured a major surgery which neither were expecting nor even considered possible in their 20’s. They both know other women who have been through worse. Some things you can avoid through taking care of yourself, but others are just the luck of the draw. Here they…
There’s a lot to love about spring and summer trends in general, from the lighter and brighter colors to the perpetually present, and perpetually loved, sweet and romantic florals. This season, we’re getting an extra dose of bold, feminine drama in the form of flamenco fabulous inspired looks that are anything but costume-y.
New York Fashion Week is always an explosion of trends and this season was no exception. Yet, as we age less and less seems wearable. Lauren and Carol of Fountain Of 30 have taken a long hard look at the week that was and have narrowed down the Top 10 NYFW Fall ’17 trends women over 40 can wear next fall.
Spring is almost upon us, and hopefully the first days of warmer weather and sunshine involve airing out your wardrobe, as well as sipping on rose and enjoying a family meal al fresco. Even though some days may still be chilly enough for your outfit to include a peacoat and a lightweight scarf, it’s never too early to start assessing the pieces you’ll want to snap up for the new season.
Is New York Fashion Week dead? That’s debatable, but the celebrities are still showing up! Do they want to see the fashion? Are they getting paid to be there? Nobody knows. And you know what, nobody cares either. A fair share of A-listers (and a whole lot of B, C, and D-listers) were in the front row of major shows like Prabal Gurung, Michael Kors, and Calvin Klein at New York Fashion Week. Let’s check out the New York Fashion Week Fall ’17 front row celebrity fashion.
Actress Diane Kruger shows us there is no such thing as too much pattern at the Tory Burch fashion show during New York Fashion Week Fall ’17. Head-to-toe pattern is risky and bold but when done right it can be nothing less than chic. Kruger’s print emotes a mod vibe. To get the Diane Kruger NYFW Celebrity Style front row look try this jacquard suit jacket and pant by ASOS.
It begins around day 5 of New York Fashion Week after viewing a multitude of fashion images and models and looks on the runway, a sort of fashion fatigue mixed with punchiness begins to set in. Fashion overload is an understatement! Here are a few of my thoughts.
Creative Directors Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim showed their Monse collection right before the debut of their Oscar de la Renta NYFW Fall 17 Collection. While I loved the innovation, tailoring, edginess and ‘coolness’ of Monse, it was Oscar de la Renta that stood out for me. I think Oscar de la Renta would be thrilled with this collection!
This past February 3 marked the 15th Annual National Wear Red Day which was started back in 2003 to bring national attention to the undisputed fact that heart disease is the #1 killer of women (it kills six times more women than breast cancer), and to raise awareness of women’s heart health.
