Trends: Blood Orange

Before I ramble on about the newest color in fashion, I want to explain what I will be doing with my posts. I will be having mainly two types of posts. The first type is just individual posts that will not be connected to others in any way. The other is that I will be doing series of posts. Meaning all the posts in one series will go under a category. For example I will be doing trend updates, like this one! If this is confusing now i promise it will not be in the future!

The runways are constantly colorful. Different designers have different color schemes for different seasons. But this season there has been a theme. Blood Orange was everywhere for the spring 2011 collections. It is definitely the color of the moment!

Cacharel Spring 2001 
Red and blood orange go amazing together! I love warm colors together, they feel perfect for summer. Personally, when I am wearing warm colors I feel bright and happy! 

J. Mendel Spring 2011
All blood orange! Even her lip color! The silhouette of the skirt is beautiful and the shirt perfectly follows the minimalist trend. 

Tory Burch Spring 2011
The flowy silhouette is very sophisticated. The shirt flows right into the skirt which is a big thing for runways. 

The great thing about this color is that it looks great on every skin tone! As seen with these pictures it will not wash anyone out or make them look bad. Three totally different skin tones are shown in these pictures and blood orange looks great on all of them! 

I can't wait to buy some blood orange accents for my wardrobe and I can't wait to see the city streets full of warm and bright colors!

For those of you who do not know I also have a tumblr. I started out on tumblr not knowing that it is really only for posting 1 picture at a time, or very short posts. I decided I should start a blogspot because I wanted to incorporate both pictures and words which just does not work on tumblr. I will still post on tumblr because I have developed a love for reblogging artsy photos and beautiful outfits. If you are interested in looking at just pictures I would love for you to check out my tumblr.


It is also called Forever Style Struck because well...I am not very creative and when I thought of that name I was beyond excited! I have become very fond of the name and somewhat attached.

Hopefully you will check out my tumblr and follow both on here and on that one! I really appreciate it!

High School Fashion

The one thing I really don't like about high school fashion is that when you walk down the hallway you see the same thing, over and over again. It is basically all Abercrombie, Hollister, Juicys, and Uggs. The real problem I have with this is that a lot of the people wear these clothes, but they don't really seem to be happy in them. A lot of the time I talk with people and they say they are afraid to wear something different. No one should ever feel nervous to wear the clothes they want to. For me, clothes are a way to express myself and be unique. I think everyone should feel like that. Every once in a while I will see someone who isn't necessarily wearing clothes I totally adore. But, these people stick out to me because they have such a unique style and I absolutely love that! A lot of people feel that High School is a time where it is the best to blend in and fit in, but that isn't the case! High school is a time to find out who you are, not to find out who everyone else is and copy them. I hope that no one will ever feel like they need to buy a clothing item, just because everyone else has it. I hope that people will find their true self and incorporate that into their style.
“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.”

--Audrey Hepburn

Every Journey Needs a Beginning

If you happened to stumble upon this blog hopefully you love fashion as much as I do. Hopefully, you love the hunt to find your personal style. That is what this is about. Fashion, trends, style, and individuality. As we go on this journey together finding a look that screams "Me". Of course my style is probably different from yours and yours different from mine. But, that doesn't mean we can't learn from each other.

Just Remember...

Stay Forever Style Struck
