wednesday trends-day: spot on

so yes, i believe in trends, but i also believe in personal style. so when one of my favorite patterns (no matter what's trending) becomes suddenly stylish, i have to celebrate with a wednesday trends-day post!
polka dots have been spotted all over the fall collections, but two collections were simply spot on && have to be celebrated: the yayoi kusama inspired louis vuitton collection.

let the games begin!

The hopeless hostess always follows trending topics && events to use for party themes! Since the hunger games movie has just been released on dvd, the hopeless hostess won't be able to help herself. She'll throw a celebratory hunger games dinner sworrie && screaming party, or save her ideas for a premier party for when the sequel debuts next summer.
