Ann Taylor Fall 2012 Collection

Everyone always talks about the fashion inspiration of Paris in the springtime but according to Ann Taylor’s Lisa Axelson, Paris in the fall is just what our wardrobe needs. For Fall 2012 the Ann Taylor collection, we see lots of black & white prints and touches of color, classic silhouettes and inspirations from the 1960’s and the most romantic city in the world. My favorite prints from the fall collection are the revised white leopard and the Dalmatian prints available in shirts, jeans, chic sheath dresses, pencil skirts, shoes and chic accessories

Ann Taylor truly brings out the fresh and youthful aspect of their collection by pairing some of the bold colors with the above statement prints without losing any of the refined sophistication that is signature to the brand

The collection featured so many favorite pieces, so what are my standouts besides everything in the Dalmatian and White Leopard prints? I’m in love with the uber-fab cape with leather piping, the incredibly sweet bow scarf and the very sexy chantilly lace bustier

Some pieces, like the pencil skirts, begin hitting stores in August with the majority of the collection becoming available in September and October. What do you think of the collection?

Ann Taylor Summer 2012 Collection

There are so many fabulous clothing and accessories choices we can expect from the Ann Taylor Summer 2012 Collection. What exactly can you expect? How about sultry looks inspired by the hot summer nights of Barcelona, looks inspired by modern dance, chic career pieces, and…drumroll….Swimwear!! That’s right, Ann Taylor now has a swimwear collection which launched in March. But let’s with the hot Barcelona nights.

Capturing the sizzling passion are crocheted pieces, slim pants, body flattering silhouettes and bold colors like Tangerine (the color of the year) – these crocheted pieces (especially the Tango Skirt) drew me in.

Black piping ignited canvas colored neutrals for the workplace while fabrics in longer, sophisticated, muted sorbet-colored silhouettes (maxi, ballet dresses and skirts) are inspired by the fluidity and movement of modern dance

The hot summer months will be awash with color, expect to see boldly colored graphic prints, neon colors such as lime, kelly green, fuchsia, tangerine, etc in clothing and accessories during the months of June and July

And speaking of summer, let’s get acquainted with the new Ann Taylor Swimwear Collection. Already available on AnnTaylor.com, the collection features one and two piece suits in classic stripes, polka dots, and animal prints mostly in halter and bandeau silhouettes with the typical chic Ann Taylor touch

Other highlights include Peekaboo color on straw hats, jelly bags and wide knit cover-up sweaters.

Ann Taylor Spring 2012 Collection

Ann Taylor has wows me again with their incredible ability to capture the true essence of today’s young woman. The Ann Taylor Spring 2012 is packed with super flattering silhouettes, bold colors and lots of it, effortless chic styles, neutrals highlighted with pops of color and eye-catching accessories that are all remarkably easy to fit into any wardrobe

Featuring sleek modern styles, graphic designs, bold prints and bright colors, the Ann Taylor Spring 2012 Collection satisfies every style palette. More than a few looks were standouts including this oh so brilliant modern lace sheath dress accented with a skinny neon orange belt; these two colorblock sheaths (the pairing of the day-glo orange highlights the classic colors perfectly)

Other favs (and boy were there many) included, the below chiffon tiered shell paired with pink crepe skirt and crop jacket, the fun garden floral sheath paired with not-so-classic black jacket and obi belt and solid and print colorblock cowl neck top

The colorblocking naturally continued on to shoes as where we saw lots of black leather/nude leather and black and natural raffia combos with a some of the brights played into the more strappy styles

Jewelry was bold in design and color as statement brights were seen in just about every hue

As previously stated, the Ann Taylor Spring 2012 collection has looks to satisfy every style palette – the colors and looks feature colors from one end of the spectrum to the other. Those with more classic tastes and those who are more bold (and everyone in between) will be very happy with everything this collection has to offer.

Ann Taylor Winter/Holiday 2011 Collection

Primary colors are key elements in the 2011 Ann Taylor Winter/Holiday Collection. Bold red (especially lovely mixed with tans and ivory), electrifying cobalt blue and chic navy blue can be seen in everything from dresses, separates and accessories adding a bolder sophistication to the collection.

The gorgeous luxe looks were inspired by Paris but the typical Ann Taylor chic silhouettes remain no doubt Lisa Axelrod made a trip prior to the creation of this collection. Its quite difficult to choose a favorite look, actually its difficult to choose top five but I am especially in love with the chic career looks which ooze with vintage appeal

Ann Taylor also introduced a formal line cocktail dresses and black-tie looks called Metropolitan Chic – that gorgeous cape alone is enough to make anyone drool

Ann Taylor recently announced that actress Demi Moore will return as the face of their Holiday 2011 campaign.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month – Keep Shopping to Support

As I mentioned in the first post, there are just so many great products that help you support the fight against Breast Cancer – too many for just one blog feature, so I’ve decided to do another with more great products that will allow you to help the fight while you shop.

Ann Taylor Pink Jewelry Collection

Ann Taylor Head Designer, Lisa Axelson, took her favorite pieces from Ann Taylor’s Legacy Collection as inspiration for this Pink Jewel Collection. 70% from the sale of the Ann Cares Pink Jewel necklace ($58) and Ann Cares Pink Jewel Ring ($58) will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Rebecca Taylor Special Nude Eyelash Trim Ruffle Blouse

I was not aware that Triple negative breast cancer existed (I’m sure like me, many of you are unaware as well). Triple negative breast cancer is an aggressive, yet little-known subtype of breast cancer. Approximately 15% of breast cancer cases are classified as triple negative, most often occurring in younger women and African-Americans. A diagnosis of triple negative means that the cancer is negative for estrogen, progesterone, and HER-2 hormone receptors, and therefore, common breast cancer targeted treatments are generally ineffective. Rebecca Taylor has designed the above $235 special blouse to benefit the Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation with 50% of the proceeds from this pink silk blouse going directly to the foundation. The blouse is available exclusively on www.RebeccaTaylor.com as well as in Rebecca Taylor boutiques.


Spreegirl Relaxed Modern Collection

If you’ve never felt the uber-softness of clothing made with bamboo (its incredibly luxurious) then purchasing Spreegirl’s products is a great way to start. Spreegirl is offering their Relaxed Modern Collection and will donate 25% of all proceeds to Pink Envelope, a non-profit organization committed to raising funds for the Making Memories Breast Cancer Foundation.

Mixit by jcpenney Pink Charm & Chain Bracelet

Be on trend while supporting an amazing organization. This adorable metal and fabric bracelet is only $10.99 and is one of several products that allows jcpenney to donate $70,000 to Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization™ in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Merchandise benefitting Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization is still available in stores and online. Plus, jcpenney is partnering with Y-ME to sponsor a special bra fit event where $1 for every bra fit — up to $50,000 — will be donated to the Y-Me organization. No other organization provides peer support to breast cancer patients 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days in a year, in whatever language the caller feels comfortable speaking.

The Look Pro Natural Lip Plumper

Alan Mruvka, Founder of E! Entertainment Television, launched THE LOOK PRO Professional Makeup debuting just in time for Breast Cancer Month with two pink shades of natural Lip Plumper. This all natural Lip Plumper is an oil based and Paraben free product. The immediate plumping effect is initiated by NIACIN (Vitamin B), is packed with moisture properties and acts as a gloss. As part of the “Real Women Wear Pink” campaign, THELOOKSTORE.com will donate $1.00 from the sale of each of the $13.50 Lip Plumper sold during the month of October 2011 to Foundation for Living Beauty. THE LOOK PRO Natural Lip Plumper allows you to achieve pout-plumping benefits, and enhance your lips to kissable fullness while donating to a good cause.
