A Change of Pace

It is almost the one year anniversary of my fashion blog, Denim du Jour, and I decided I need a change of pace! I switched from wordpress.com to wordpress.org to allow for more creativity and options.

I will no longer be posting on this blog and would love for you to switch over to my new blog:

Old Sport

I was transported back, back to an era filled with glitz and glam, spontaneous parties, and overflowing boos.  It goes without saying that I am referring to the Roaring ’20s, the Flapper Era, the Jazz Age.  An age of uncharacteristic enthusiasm and optimism.

The movie, the Great Gatsby was overflowing with decadent jewelry and one of a kind ensembles.  The Tiffany headpieces, the rings, the necklaces – even if the film’s storyline does not interest you at all, The Great Gatsby is worth seeing for the beautiful clothes.  This was a magical era, and a movie the captures it to the fullest.

And now for my review of The Great Gatsby.  It is a movie worth seeing and not just for the fantastic and complex storyline, but for the filmography, character development, and of course, the clothes.   Despite the long duration, the film accurately depicted the novel, showing their true conflicts and desires. The actors were more then superb and were the perfect choice for their respective roles.  For those who have seen Moulin Rouge, this film has a similar feel in the unique filming style and graphic design.  The Great Gatsby  has made it on to my list of favorite films.

Blooms and Blossoms

Spring days call for simplistic layers, whimsical prints, and staple pieces.  Spring is one of my most favorite seasons – it is full of life, warmth, and blossoming flowers.  Roads lined with rose buds and their sweet smell fills the air.  Spring is my little fairytale.

Beats from Coast to Coast

Summer sun, the breeze in your hair, and those trendy beats. It is officially music festival season and the real question is what are you going to wear?  Coachella  is almost a wrap – where the young, old, and celebs displayed their laid back, bohemian style.  Festival staples: crop tops, maxi skirt, and round sunnies were seen for miles! These multiple day events are attracting big performs, appealing to the likes of all genres of music – from pop to electronic, and indie to country.  There is a festival out there for you!

Give me a V … Give me a C

I am currently in love with two things: Valentino studded shoes and Celine bags! On there own they are showstoppers, but when worn together it is beyond perfection! I love the fun colors and details, encompassing both modern trends and classic, stylish silhouettes.  One of my favorite bloggers, Atlantic-Pacific, showed off this look with her perfect red color combo. What more could you ask for?

Valentino. Celine. Red.

Clear, the New Color

There is so much happening in the world of fashion at the moment and it is so exciting.  Designers showing off their new lines at the snowed out New York Fashion Week, while a couple days ago celebs showed off their best looks at the Grammy’s.  However, Tuesday’s Treasure is CLEAR BAGS! I stumbled up these while looking at Vogue’s photos from Fashion Week and I am kind of obsessed! Yes, I know – I posted three pictures of very similar Marc by Marc Jacobs bags … but I just love them! It is even available at Nordstrom!
