Trend Block

This season the strong shoulder is back in style. Everything from dresses to blazers to tops...it's everywhere! I actually like this look quite a bit. I have yet to make any strong shoulder additions to my closet...but I'm not ruling it out. I really like this look when the shoulders are not overly big...but just emphasized and pointy.

Below are some of my favorite strong shoulder looks. Click on the collage to see where you can purchase them.



What do you think of this trend? Do you think it's hip...or very 80's (Dynasty anyone?)???

80's Dynasty!

Not into it. Too 80's. We already have and love the leggings and sequins but the shoulders are too much!
I'm not really liking the velvet, either.

Patty Ann---not all of them are. the dress on the bottom right and the top on the top left are from FC. :)

It's very 80s Dynasty. I jus don't think I'd be able to pull it off. It seems like something that looks amazing on the runway, but doesn't translate to everyday life. The options here, however, are stunning! :)

I'm trying this out for the first time today, Diane! I bought a shoulder-padded blazer from Nasty Gal, and I love it- I'll do a post it soon ;)

ps- Thanks for all the sweet comments on our blog, Diane! They make our week!!!
