Black and Blue Tree of Life

This is my submission to the ABS September competition.  The tree of life pendant in white, blue, and black was handmade by ebay seller zansell.  I added the square blue beads and silver headpin accents to the black twisted oval chain.  I used the silver ribbon to tie into silver bail on the pendant.  The ribbon can be tied at any length to perfectly match any outfit.

Fall Fashion Trends

It seems that the TV show Mad Men has made its impact on fashion.  Banana Republic actually has a Mad Men Collection and Mod was all the rage on the catwalk.

It also appears that a few items from Steampunk will be popular: duster coats and ruffled collars

The 80's are rearing their ugly head with crew neck sweaters and rounded shoulder. 

Other trends for the fall are:
  • Lad
  • Luxe tux
  • Primary Plaids
  • Boudoir slippers
  • Oversized pants
  • Colorful snakeskin
  • Wide brimmed hats
  • Linear Midis
