being trendy...

one of my guilty pleasures is to go to barnes and nobles on a saturday night with my DH and sip a starbucks coffee (a frou-frou kind) and read fashion magazines followed by a mad dash through the clearance section for any must have cheap reads.

tonight i was reading some magazines about shopping and it looks like the trend for winter is velvet. sweet. i still have 2 velvet jackets from 5 and 8 seasons ago that i can't seem to throw away - one is a sweet raver turquoise jacket with like racer stripes down the sleeves and another is a uber cool fine burgundy velvet jacket that has like a crushed stitched velvet seam down the front. good thing i am a saver.

but i notice similar trends in scrapbooking too. it swings from shabby vintage chic to modern clean lines then onto that DIY look with actual doodling, etc. and i will admit it, i am influenced by it all but still feel that i should be true to myself.

but back to trends, i did think up some ideas tonight for cool new things for CHA winter 2006. some new ribbon designs, etc. it is hard to think that after 72 hours of getting through one show, it is time to look ahead already but it is...

in the meantime, i should find those flowery crushed velvet leggings i had in high school. too bad i am 15 lbs heavier now b/c i would be SO stylish in them.

LOVE the layout - course now I'm hungry! LOL!

I don't know how you two do it.

I SERIOUSLY doubt that you're 15 lbs heavier......

Cute layout!!!!!!

I think it *might* be a good thing that the leggings don't fit any more! LOL! But I bet those velvet jackets are awesome!
