As that amazing, sexy seventies vibe came soaring down the Spring 2011 runways, a very particular shoe of choice became very popular: platforms. Famously imported from the seventies, platforms are back and are going to be bigger than ever this spring! Platforms really come in so many different styles- booties, lace-up, wedges, pumps, and this season's favorite: espadrilles! I'm obsessed with big, huge platforms that channel my inner Rachel Zoe. Since I'm pretty short, wearing platforms is like putting myself on a big tall stage in shoe version! But, if you happen to be on the taller side, fear not! Platforms can be a subtle lift on a pump, or even a couple inch Prada espadrille! The possibilities to give a nod to your inner Ziggy Stardust are endless! Skip into spring with some chunky, 70's-inspired, platforms on your feet!

The seventies had many trends within the decade- there was disco, punk, and the traditional look of flared pants, a button-up, and platforms. No matter what specific style the people of the 70's wore, they always had a certain attitude and essence. It's that sort of very sexy laid-back and effortless, careless way of dressing. Whether you were in denim head to toe, or gold spandex hot pants, you didn't over think the look. The people just wore what they wanted to wear, where ever they wanted to wear it. Now that's how fashion should be.
Oh what I would give to live in the days of Ziggy Stardust..

One of the best parts of the 70's: the shoes. Even better? When men wore them too.
70's inspired clothing has been making a slow and steady comeback over the past few seasons, but I sense that it will be a major trend for spring 2011. Marc Jacobs' S/S 2011 collection(above) was very 70's inspired with big glasses, platforms, high-waisted pants, maxi dresses, and a lot of color. This goes on my list for one of the best Marc Jacobs collections of all time. To-Die-For.

Glitter. Glamour. Feathers. Sparkle. Leather. I don't know about you, but I'm the kind of girl that can NEVER enough of the above. I'm obsessed with rock stars like Bowie that flamboyantly and outrageously embraced the glam factor. That is part of why I have a deep love and obsession for Adam Lambert:).
On Friday I went to Adam Lambert's concert called "The Glam Nation"! I'm OBSESSED with this man, so I was FREAKING OUT of excitement!! And of course (like always) he did nothing but blow my mind and go past my expectations!! The vocals were OUT OF THIS WORLD, Adam was hotter than ever, and the fashion and imagery was ah-may-zing! There were lasers, glitter, fringe, feathers, costume changes, dancers, leather, and much, much more! It was so inspiring, and such an amazing experience!!
This incredible event made me think about trends for this upcoming fall! With artists like Adam Lambert and Lady Gaga taking over pop culture right now, glam is making a sparkly comeback...and I couldn't be more excited!! Get out your sequins girls, because this fall/winter is going to be extra fabulous:)!
