5 Halloween Costume Ideas-2011

Halloween is just around the corner and it is time to start thinking about what you want to dress up as this year. If you have not started planning what you are going to dress up as, do not worry. I have put together a list of my top 5 fashionable Halloween costume ideas for 2011.

1.) Sookie Stackhouse from True Blood.

True Blood has become one of my favorite HBO series this year and Sookie is by far my favorite character. She has such an adorable and sweet sense of style but also has the courage and strength to battle with dangerous vampires! Don’t forget to add some vampire bite marks to your neck. You can find her Merlot’s waitress costume at www.hbo.comSookie Stackhousesookie stackhouse sookie stackhouse

2.) Lady Gaga.

I have a feeling we will be seeing a lot of people dressing up as Lady Gaga this year, but luckily there are many of her over-the-top outfits to pick from. Click here to browse some of her most famous looks.

3.) Cher from Clueless.

Clueless is a truly timeless movie. Cher represents everything that is fashion and since I love the 90’s I thought she would be a fun character to be for Halloween.  Just remember to add “whatever” and “as if!” to your vocabulary! You can find Cher’s classic white knee high socks from Foot Traffic here.

4.) Snooki from Jersey Shore.

I just could not leave Snooki off of this list. I think she is such a fun character. Make sure to gym, tan and laundry to get in character and make sure you rock snooki’s signature hairdo. Click here to watch an online tutorial on how to do a “Snooki Poof” and makeup.

5.) Twiggy.

Lastly I thought I would include fashion icon Twiggy. She is a classic. This costume will give you the opportunity to wear the retro style and bright colors we have been seeing on the runways this season.  Click here to see how to create Twiggy’s famous eyelashes.

SKIRTED LEGGINGS…

The perfect combination of leggings and a skirt in one piece!

One of my pet peeves is trying to align my tights or leggings with my underwear and my skirt.  That’s three waistbands to negotiate every time I move!  I am always “adjusting” to avoid those unsightly lines that show my not-so-perfect figure.  You know what I mean!

Foot Traffic Skirted Legging

To solve that problem, we have designed a very figure-flattering solid opaque legging and skirt combined. It is the perfect fashion piece as it combines two items into one so once you put it on, no more tugging and pulling! It is great to layer under your favorite sweater, jacket, or shirt. At the recent Accessories Show in Las Vegas, this item was a favorite of the buyers because it fits well, looks great, and the quality is outstanding. Hopefully, it will be a favorite of yours this fall and winter.

Fall Fashion Favorites for Campus

Well, here it is again—school.

Summer is behind you and it’s back to class. Your tan has faded, there’s a chill in the air, and the leaves are turning to shades of orange and red.

Rise and Shine! You may not look forward to dragging yourself out of bed, but you can look forward to wearing some of the fun new fall fashions. And, you can cleverly reinforce your current wardrobe with new seasonal items to transition from summer into fall. No need to give up the mini-skirt or shorts —just add some great leggings or tights and let your legwear transition your wardrobe.

You don’t have to sacrifice comfort, warmth and fashion for school.

FOR THE LOVE OF SNAKES…

…who thought up this latest trend!?!

I am petrified of snakes and the mere sight of one in a magazine or heaven forbid, real life, sends chills up and down my spine.  However, snakeskin–particularly python–is the latest animal kingdom pattern exciting the fashion industry this season and has slithered onto the pages of every fashion magazine and every product imaginable.

Snakeskin texture and colors certainly add dramatic interest ranging from playful to sophisticated.

Python Print and Snakeskin Fashion Trend

(Black python belt by Fashion Addict, Natural snake print handbag by Prada, Python black printer tights by Foot Traffic, Python print silk dress by Lanvin, Snakeskin bangle bracelets by UO, and Gray python vamp pumps by Christian Louboutin.)

They certainly make a “striking” fashion statement!

We have been selling snakeskin prints for years and yes, we jumped on the python design wagon this season and designed a new dramatic tight and footless tight that will crawl right up your legs.

Let us know what you think about the python fashion frenzy this season.

Has it slithered into your wardrobe this year? Will you be wearing our new python tights and footless tights?

Bamboo –zle! The game with only one answer….

  • What fiber is 4 times more absorbent than cotton?
  • What is one of the fastest growing plants in the world and can grow up to 4 feet a day?
  • BambooWhat plant is disease and pest resistant and can grow without fertilizers?
  • What natural fiber contains a substance that kills bacteria and disease?
  • What material dries twice as fast as cotton?
  • What plant is sustainable, renewable, and self replenishing?
  • What plant releases 35% more oxygen into the air than trees?
  • What material wicks moisture from the skin in the summer and provides insulation in the winter?
  • What material resists odor retention?
  • What material offers natural UV protection, cutting out 98% of UV rays?
  • What plant offers the highest per acre yield, requires no irrigation, and low impact harvesting?

If you answered BAMBOO to these questions you are a winner!
Bamboo is rapidly becoming one of the most popular fibers and can be found in towels, bedding, clothes, hospital gowns, socks and athletic wear. Because it has a luxurious, soft feel, it is often compared to silk and cashmere, but with the practicality of other washable and dryable fabrics. Since adding bamboo to our line five years ago, we have had an incredible response. We suggest you try our expanded line of bamboo tight, leggings, ankle socks (men’s and women’s) and crew socks (men’s and women’s).
Try Bamboo….you’ll love it and so will the environment!

OLE, YULIE!

West 18th Street Fashion ShowThe West 18th Street Fashion Show is one of the highlights of the summer as 18 young, talented fashion designers showcase their runway collections to a street packed audience in the Crossroads Art District in downtown Kansas City. The crowd eagerly gathered June 11 to see this year’s collections based on the theme, Summer in Spain.

OLE! The show did not disappoint.

Each fashion collection was a distinctive expression from each of the designers. One of the designers, Yulie Urano, was a newcomer to the show.

When talking to Yulie, she was very pleased with her designs and found the process exhausting but extremely energizing. As a recent graduate of the Kansas City Art Institute in fiber arts, Yulie was concentrating on her senior thesis until the middle of May. Once graduated, Yulie was able to turn her attention to creating her knitwear collection, showcasing her passion for fashion. The knitting needles were flying as the mid-June deadline approached.

Yulie Urano West 18th Street Fashion Show Collection

When asked what inspired her designs, Yulie said it was the bold bright colors and feminine aspects of Spain.

She described her collection as “fun, feminine with an unconventional twist.”

That is definitely a good description as Yulie used large twisted yarn to create all of her pieces. She made the long strips of thick yarn on a knitting machine and then knit each fashion piece herself. The bright colored yarns and garments were punctuated with contrasting colored fashion tights from Foot Traffic, creating an invigorating knitwear collection, as seen in this great photo by Tiffany Matson.
