Have you heard of London based designer,  Markus Lupfer? He’s new to me. He’s considered a “young person’s designer” with graphic tees and comic style. You’ll see what I mean when you view his video. However, I am a grown up girl who enjoyed his charming video with a “Japanese Pop Theme” and I’m really loving his Fall 2012 line. His use of brocade, black leather, and a 3 piece suit with cigarette pants is oh so divine. He is fashion forward yet classic in cut and design. And oh so very refreshing. Just what I needed. How about you?

Orange You Glad It’s Spring!!

The past few days have given us a jump start on what to expect for Spring weather here in New York City! With Spring just a few days away, the Big Apple is ready to wear Spring’s hottest color, Orange! Officially it is being called Tangerine Tango!  If you are a fashion warrior, you are going to go all in and wear your Tangerine Tango with pride. Here at F.I.T., I can assure you  it will be all over the place. For those of you who may be a bit hesitant about this season’s color, I have a solution. Shoes!

Shoes solve every thing! Really….every thing! You’re wardrobe from last year can be update by infusing Tangerine Tango as your “neutral” color for shoes. You can wear it with ANY color and hit two trends in one, Color Blocking and Tangerine Tango! I took the liberty to find 4 affordable options that will amp up the volume in your wardrobe.

These 3 styles, available at Zappos.com, are easy to wear while exploring the city because they are wedges and a platform.

I have always looked forward to the Payless designer collaborations. I purchased a pair of fashion forward wedges from Lela Rose last season and this year she came through again. I love this wedge and it’s super affordable and chic!

You can also be sexy and add just a hint of Tangerine Tango to your shoe with this gorgeous heel from ZARA. Isn’t it sexy?

So what ever your style and price range, there is a shoe out there for you to get accquainted with Tangerine Tango before you take the leap.

Next time we’ll explore how to wear the color in our clothing.
