Ladies Iris Apfel is one of my FAVE fashion icons of ALL-TIME! This 90 year old eccentric style savvy, owl framed, woman has made such a huge impact on the fashion industry it makes NO SENSE!
Iris is originally from Austria but now lives in the Upper East Side of Queens, New York. She's known for her extraordinary interior design skills and AMAZING fashion sense. Many famous designers have used her style as inspiration for their collections like Alexander Wang and she even has a book "Rare Bird of Fashion" which documents her eclectic wardrobe. But ladies the BEST part is Ms. Iris Apfel has joined forces with HSN to launch her very own collection "Rava Avis". The collection will air next month on HSN with prices ranging from $20 to $150. Check out some of her pieces and do a little research on her you'll be surprised what you find! She's definitely in the Hall of Fame of Fashion in my book!

Hey Ladies meet LoveJChloe she's this week's 'Stylista' who says her style is all about being comfortable and having fun check her out!
1. Describe your personal style
" I would define my style as fun, playful and versatile. I dress for the liking of myself. I like to be comfortable, and cute but don't want to appear like in trying to hard."
2. Who are some of your favorite designers?
" I have no fave designer, I feel like if its cute, AFFORDABLE and you LOVE it get it."
3. What is the one item in your closet you cannot live without?
"I'm not a girly girl so my prize possession would have to be my PINK sweats and my UGGS. I can throw them on for any occasion, EXCEPT the CLUB, (well i think I could pull off PINK attire in the club)"
4. What new trends are you excited about ROCKIN this upcoming Fall season?
"I really have no trend that I'm looking forward to. I am however looking forward to rooking fall boots (knee highs). I like to set my own trends."
5. What advice would you give to girls who are trying to develop THEIR own personal style?
"Personal style is just that, your own person attire that you feel works for you. Don't try to imitate other's, my motto is "Do What Works For You" and that's not just restricted to style."
6. What does 'FASHION' mean to you?
"Fashion to me means FUN and self expression. Have fun with clothing, don't be afraid to step out the box but always remember to stay true to who you are."

As you can tell from my 'Weekend Flow' pics from yesterday (above) I'm really digging the 'Midi Skirt' trend for Fall right now. Midi's originated in the 1940's when fashion was all about being elegant and ladylike. They typically fall anywhere from just below the knee to the mid calf and can be form fitting or flared. I love pairing my flared midi's with tight tops just to add some contrast. Thrift stores are infamous for selling midi's so go out and grab yourself a Midi and join the trend!

I absolutely love the weekend who doesn't a time to just relax, hang out with friends, and just enjoy yourself! Friday I went out with a friend we got crab legs and shrimp from our fave spot then went out shopping. Good Times! Then Saturday I spent the entire day shopping for my apartment, I picked up some really nice pieces which was super exciting. Sunday was church of course and spending time with my little sister before she starts school this week. How was your weekend ladies? Hope you enjoyed yourselves ;)
