12 Fall Accessory Trends for Your Zodiac Sign

As the summer season is starting to settle down, it’s time to start planning your fall wardrobe and pulling out those must-have accessories. In partnership with the Astrology experts at here are my tips to help you get started with the best trends in footwear or handbags for your zodiac sign. Aries (March 21 – April 19) The fearless and bold Aries woman will be excited to turn heads in thigh-high boots that can be worn over pants or with a sexy dress for full-on vixen mode. The over-the-knee boot comes in many different styles, but it’s the fiery confidence found in Aries that will take this trend to the next level. Taurus (April 20 – May 20) Taureans love being surrounded by the best of the best and value luxury, so splurging on a pair of Lucite shoes won’t take much convincing. Designers loved incorporating the clear acrylic glass element in the heels of their footwear for this fall — from a chunky heeled boot to a sexy stiletto, the choice is yours, Taurus! …

B.A.D. Girl Style: Spring/Summer Footwear Trend to Skip

Okay so I normally don’t mention trends that I don’t like on here because I don’t even care to mention them but this ugly shoe trend has got to stop! Designers like Celine, Prada and Marc Jacobs have made this footwear trend acceptable and it has hit mainstream in full force. I keep seeing so many of my favorite bloggers rocking Birkenstocks and it makes me want to cry! I am all about comfort, but I wont go this far until I am at least 80 yrs old and even then I may reconsider.  I don’t care how much you embellish these things I find them terrible. And don’t get me started on the sport slides.  I thought this was more of a street wear trend until I saw that designers were styling resort collections with these things. You have got to be kidding me! Wearing Adidas sport slides as part of your outfit is acceptable? Stop it. Leave them for the athletes and college students who wear them to class with sweats and socks. I cant. What do you think of this trend? …

B.A.D. Girl Spring Trend: Slip-On Sneakers

This is probably my favorite shoe trend of the season because its an easy shoe to style. You can rock them with jeans and a blazer for the office or pair them with a cute dress for weekend brunch dates. I haven’t decided on the pair that I want yet and because I am an entrepreneur on a budget I have to choose the most versatile. I am however,  leaning towards the Steve Maddens since I don’t have Miu Miu money just yet. Steve Madden ECTRC-C in Snake, $99.95 Steve Madden ECCENTRIC in Leopard, $99.95 Vans classic slip-on in Metallic Leather, $60 Mother of Pearl printed canvas slip-ons, $370 Saint Laurent Pinaskullada in Pink/Black, $395 MIU MIU leather point toe slips-ons in Black, $490 Ash studded low tops in white, $142 Would you rock this trend? xoxo Nicole Let’s Connect:  Bloglovin’  Facebook  Twitter  Instagram   Youtube   Shop

B.A.D. Girl Spring 2014 Footwear Trend: Mules

Sophia Webster, $541    | Rag & Bone, $550  | Jessica Simpson, $98   | Tanya Taylor  | Aldo, $100  |  Alexander Wang, $525  |  Steve Madden, $99 | Fendi, $990 I’ll admit when I first saw this footwear trend popping up on the runway I was a bit turned off, but it appears I am growing up because I actually really like it. I used to think of mules as shoes only older ladies would wear, but the fashion gods have made me a believer. What I like about this shoe style  is that it can be dressed up or down. I love me a versatile shoe and  I am lusting real hard on the NONSTP by Steve Madden. I gotta have them! Would you rock this trend? xo Nicole Let’s Connect:  Bloglovin’  Facebook  Twitter  Instagram   Youtube   Shop

Shoe Cult Collection by Nasty Gal

The fashion world and shoe whores everywhere are buzzing because Nasty Gal dropped their very first shoe collection, Shoe Cult by Nasty Gal yesterday.  I checked out the line and while the shoes are all really cute I was surprised at how the designs weren’t more unique. Nasty Gal is a brand that is known for setting trends and being different and I found the shoes to be very similar to what is already out on the market. I picked some of my favorites to feature in this post, but none of the shoes have me saying “OMGEE I NEEEEED!”. The collection is affordable with prices ranging from $40 to $158 with the bulk of the designs being under $100.  I am curious as to the quality of the shoes because you can never really tell from photos. They have all the body styles covered from biker boots to pumps and everything in between, like these super cute Blazing Boom Sneakers.   I am on the hunt for new birthday shoes and may just pick …

B.A.D. Girl Trend: Kick It Up!

I used to be a serious sneaker head back in the day so I am beyond excited to see my favorite designers and bloggers making sneakers a  fashion DO! However, this time around it’s all about the wedge, embellishments and the worn in look from designers like Isabel Marant to Jeffrey Campbell  to even good ol Nike! Here are my top three trends in sneakers at the moment: Kick Trend #1: The HIDDEN WEDGE  Kick Trend #2: The Embellished Sneaker  Kick Trend #3: The Platform  Gosh if my 16 year old self could see me now wearing sneakers with a worn in “dirty” look on purpose I think she would cry. So tell me B.A.D. Girls are you ditching your heels for a pair of kicks?!
