Dangerously Daring Fall Trends Spike Nationwide

SS Collage 102912 BLOG

While San Francisco is in celebration overload since winning the World Series last night; after witnessing vandalism all over the city including fires, dented cars, and this bus in SOMA overtaken by dancing ‘fans’ bobbing their heads inches below power lines as the driver ran to the police, I decided to head home. In the words of one of Joe Buck’s favorite announcing terms, the morons looting ‘spoiled it’ last night for what should have been a happy carefree celebration. Sadly, if the Giants won at home, I don’t think SF could’ve handled it last night. Is rioting and vandalism common in other cities when they win the World Series?

Enough about baseball, let’s talk fall trends. Specifically, let’s discuss dangerously daring trends like ‘STUDS,‘ ‘SPIKES‘ and ‘LEATHER‘.

Faux or Real, Leather is Hot ~ After shopping in LA last weekend, I couldn’t turn a corner without seeing racks drenched in faux leather shorts, tops and skirts. As long as you’re not faux leather head-to-toe, the look is good-to-go.

Zest by Zara ~ If you’re looking for a perfect pair of heels for cocktail parties this fall and winter, check out Zara. I buy Zara heels each season and they’re good quality, but more importantly stylish and I constantly get asked where they are from. Plus, most styles are under $90.

A Solution to Combat those Awkward Shoulder-Touching Guys  ~ When I saw this spiked studded top in LA, I couldn’t resist. Although I was scared to look down fearing I’d poke my eye out.

How to Spike Your Wardrobe ~ Too spike-it-up without wearing an extreme tee like this, check out a spiked headband, loafers like these or a spiked leather jacket.

Cuff Love ~ I’ve been a big fan of cuff (bracelets) for a couple years and when Lauren with LapisBeach sent me this gold wire knit cuff that clasps in the back with a magnet, I was pleasantly surprised. Many bracelets I have a hard time fastening solo, but this cuff was a cinch.

YOUR THOUGHTS:

Are you accessorizing with spikes this fall? 

SPECIAL COLLABORATION: After I got my Fiat car a few weeks ago, I collaborated with DGDG Auto group and Capital Fiat to create a promo video cruisn’ SF. (Sidenote: you may recognize Uncle Jesse’s house at the end…) See the video Here.

  7. I’m letting the spikes pass me by… I used to be a Personal Injury attorney, so all I see with the spike trend are the safety hazards!

    • haha LawyerDoll, that’s funny. I have to admit I don’t think they’d cut anyone, but they are kinda dangerous and especially spiked loafers could be really painful if someone stepped on them barefoot :)

  8. Every piece is perfect in this post! Love the skirt, studded shirt, shoes, bag and bangle. And your legs look great! Thank you for your kind comments.

  9. OMG, your spiked top is sooo cool!! I love that. And I think I’d be afraid of poking my eye out too. :P And Zara does have the best heels. I recently got a pair and although I haven’t worn them yet, they are so pretty. You look amazing in these photos! <3

  15. OMG, Dale! This is my favorite look on you, by far! It’s too hard to pick a favorite piece, but I am in love with the spike detail on the shoulder, the leather skirt, and the awesome new Zara heels. You are killin’ it!

    And yes, rioting is not just limited to SF when home teams win big. It’s kinda annoying actually.

  16. Fabulous look Dale! The cuff looks gorgeous on you! Thanks for helping spread the word about Lapisbeach hand knit jewelry!
