My lovely friend Kristina and I styled the outfits and collaborated to produce some great images—Tina as the photographer and me as the model.
Key Trends to follow now and through the fall:
1) Camel—neutral colors are a classic, versatile choice for this season.
2) Velvet—this 80’s staple fabric is a fresh, new choice for 2010.
3) High-waisted “Mom” Jeans are making a new appearance.
4) New Lengths—skirt lengths vary from short minis to calf length circle skirts to skirts of long, ankle-length proportions.
5) Tailored Jackets are also a style worth noting.
6) While shoulders are being built to denote a powerful woman (yes shoulder pads will still be seen through 2010), the bare shoulder is also a great choice. Asymmetric tops value an effortless, feminine flare.
7) Chunky heel. Put those stilettos away and opt for an easier mode of transportation.
8) Metallic adds a sparkling sheen to any drab wardrobe.

Designers constantly find inspiration from vintage fashions, so second-hand stores are a perfect venue to find fashion-forward attire. Someone else’s trash can be your treasure!
Again, these images are all taken by the very talented Kristina Krug. We have another shoot set for this Friday, so be looking forward to seeing some more second-hand finds that pack a very powerful punch. The possibilities are endless! Do a little trend research, grab $20 cash, pack your hand sanitizer, and get your thrift on!
