• Fall 2012 Style Inspiration: Baroque Flair and Ornate Embellishments

    I’ve been having so much with these Style Inspirations, I decided to keep ’em going with another one of Fall 2012’s hottest trends: Baroque and Ornate Embellishments.
    It’s all about gilded curlicues, jacquard, and embroidery.
    Check out my splurges and steals:

    The first look is a splurge circus with a $3,478 Emilio Pucci Beaded Milano Stitch Viscose Jacket, $1,502 DSquared Stud Pumps, and $1,300 Bottega Veneta Sequined clutch:

    I admittedly got a bit carried away, but brought it back with this $40 Baroque Cardigan by River Island (you might remember it from our 2 Chainz concert style inspiration):

    I toned it down with $84 Leigh Jeans from Topshop and Zara’s $159 Studded Ankle Boots, but added an irreverent twist with a $28 snakeskin hat from River Island and a $14 New Look Baroque Beaded Clutch:

    If you’re more of a dress girl, get into Clover Canyon. I’m a huge fan of their $237 baroque printed dress:

    Add a chic touch with $1,695 Nicholas Kirkwood Metallic floral-embroidered mesh sandals and a $2,165 Alexander McQueen Unicorn clutch:

    The last look incorporates a save: Rare’s $63 Baroque Skater Dress.

    Head back to Zara for their $90 Court pumps, and complete with a dash of red lipstick.

    What do you think?
    Which would you wear?
