Fashion-Lust Pick: Big Coats Trend

Happy Wednesday! Here's my Fashion Lust pick: Big Coats Trend. So, I know many of you shuddered at the huge coat silhouettes that made their way down the fall 2013 runway. I have had difficulty accepting this one also. But I've picked a few options that inspire fashion lust and won't drown out your cute curves and femininity. If you notice, the tailoring is exquisite on these coats and they can add structure to your shape while still being chic. I have decided to go on a woman-hunt for the PINP (poise in a pinch/ inexpensive high-quality) versions. I will definitely post when I score. And I shall score indeed!

Have you rocked the Big Coat trend yet, or spotted a affordable PINP version that will make us here at The Gathered lady drool? If so, share your pics with us on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram @TheGatheredLady and if we like it, we'll share! See ya Friday!

Fall 2013 Accessories Trends 

This fall, it's all about the accessories. Earlier this month we posted on Fall 2013 clothing trends featuring structured suits, grey shades, big coats, and several other styles from the runway. I personally have reservations about the big coat trend (who wants to add tons of bulk in heavy fabrics and lose their shape while adding the illusion of extra weight?! Not I!). Despite the questionable trends, there is some hope this season in purses, and jewelry. Every good fashionista knows that accessories can make or break an outfit. We’ve picked the top accessory trends, check them out:

 1. Earrings

Fall 2013 Earring Trends



Statement Earrings are a favorite highlight of mine for this season. I always love great jewelry and earrings add drama to your outfit and highlight facial features. Best worn with up-dos , this trend may mean you need to take a break on the statement necklaces to prevent dramatic over-do. Pearls were also quite prevalent in jewelry and could be worn in studs, details, or as a component of a statement chandelier earring. Honorable mention to sterling silver and metallic jewelries.

2. Shoes

Fall 2013 Shoe trends



Just the word “shoes” makes me smile. But I was a bit underwhelmed with most of the shoe trends for this season. I’ll be opting out of most of the “boyfriend” shoe trend. Leave the clunk-masters to your neighborhood electrician. I prefer the 1940’s, modern vintage heel and look that can be seen in many shoes on the runway. Also, velvet shoes are a big deal now. Although, I’d suggest taking the velvet trend with a grain of salt. However, I will fully sign-up for the thigh high boots. Provided that you have decent legs, rock them while wearing appropriate hemlines, and avoid the night-walker potential, this trend can be both daring and chic. And despite cycling for several seasons, the punk-rock shoe and inspiration is still alive in shoe-wear. In addition to studs, now pearls are trendy details that are going to be showing up on shoes.

3. Purses

Fall 2013 Purse Trends



The trend for fur is rampant this season. Purses with fur details were ubiquitous on the runway. Also, the double strap or forever bag is big this season. These structured bags compliment the strong lines and architectural elements of this season clothing designs. Also, pearls showed up in almost all elements of fashion and add sophistication and quiet glamour to bagwear.

4. Scarves and Long Gloves

Fall 2013 Accessory Trends- Gloves & Scarves


Staying warm is functional, but these trends make it fashionable. I adore the long leather gloves and plan to live out my Olivia Pope fashion inspiration trough them. Yes, I live in LA… but a girl can dream, can’t she? Major fashion points to anyone who can rock the faux fur (or real fur if you’re balling and don’t have PETA guilt) scarf. It’s certainly a ‘lot of look’ and can be worn to create an impression of opulence. But if paired with inappropriate urban wear (read apple bottom jeans, and glitter top) it can create the deadly effect of tackalicious -hood-rat- ratchedness. Yes, that is a real fear and a real possibility. Don’t let that happen. Stay gathered, by wearing your faux fur only at the most elite of occasions.



How to Rock... the DIY Nail Trend 

Happy Friday Fashionistas! Well ladies, I am back after an amazing birthday last week. My gift to myself: a week of pampering - fancy restaurants, housekeeping services, parties, and a fancy weave to top it off. All of this has led me to believe that I was MEANT to live the high life. Too bad my bank account is holding me back! 

For our topic capping off this week's fabulous posts, I have worked some magic to combine Bree's awesome DIY nail polish tower and Charity's manicure maintenance. We are going to cover how to rock THE hottest trend in nails -- the DIY trend! 

Ladies, this trend of women innovating amazing nail designs has exploded all over the internet, with hundreds of pictorials and videos populating Youtube, Pinterest, Tumblr, and various blogs. Here are some of the top methods and means to get those gorgeous one of kind nails. Bonus points for being poised in a pinch, because these amazing nails are damn near free using things you have lying around the house! (Unless you buy fresh polish.) 

1. Scotch Tape! 

Scotch tape makes a great stencil. You are limited only by what shapes you can imagine to stencil. Some clever girls put their scrapbooking tools to use -- think patterned scissors and punches.

2. Needle! 

Those super fine lines you would need to draw are sometimes best accomplished with a needle, dragged through polish. 

3. Decals

So you can buy decals to place on those nails, but did you know you could easily create your own decals buy cutting shapes out of plastic sandwich bags and then painting them? One clear coat over the plastic, and you have a decal baby! Now go forth and prosper :)

4. Foam Sponge 

Sponge painting might be out in home decorating, but it is most definitely IN for ombre nails! Just dip and dab ladies...dip and dab. 

 Really ladies, this is only the beginning. Get out there and look for yourself! Ladies are using tinsel, drinking straws, cling wrap, toothpicks... you name it. Use your imagination, and yours could be the next pinterest pic with 3,000,000 repins.
