Fall Into Fashion: Shine
Posted by Gabrielle Anderson Thompson on September 15, 2012 at 5:36 PM
By now you've probably noticed that this season isn't about blending in or being subtle. This next trend takes standing out to new heights. I'm talking about shine. As in shiny pants. Shiny shoes. Shiny handbags. Be careful though, shine does not equal patent leather. Think silver and gold.
Now with some loud trends, its better to keep the rest of your look simple and understated. That's not the case with this one. Shine looks great with baroque and embellished, especially since both these trends almost always incorporate silver and gold.
Gabrielle, a self-professed fashion junkie, and the blogger behind Resort Rock Sugar, leads a dual life. Quite paradoxically, she spends her days in a downtown highrise office building as a busy civil litigation attorney, but you wouldn't guess it if you peeked inside her closet. There you would find everything from fringe tank tops to short leather mini dresses, essentially nothing she can wear to her 9 to 5, err, 8 to 8 job. On the weekends, when she isn't discovering hot new designers whilst hitting up her favorite shopping haunts in LA, or taking in the brilliant fashion that is LA's scenester crowd, she is documenting it all via her blog, and probably from a prime seat at the Coffee Bean on the corner of Beverly and Robertson, because in LA all you need to do is step outside to get a little fashion inspiration.
