TOP + TROUBLING TRENDS: THE YEAR IN REVIEW

fashionland - we are still partying like it's new years eve, 2007 on this blog. you may have already forgotten them, but we want to spend a few minutes reminding you of what made 2007 haute and not in beauty and fashion. meredith davis, one of my new crop of blay reporters, spent a few hours in the trenches of google, life & style magazine and our favorite blogs to come up with this list.and i did what i do best: pontificate on the trends. do you agree with us? or better yet, do you have your own trends to add?

WE LOVED:
1) BIG BAGS AND WE CANNOT LIE -
from our blackberry's, digi cams, leather bound notebooks, pack of pens and change of clothes (for a sleepover at your b.f's of course!) these bags kept us looking more like the classy chics we are and less like the bag ladies we could become.
a fave of ours on www.allaboutyou.com
the shoes and outfit are dead wrong. but the big bag is oh so right. (people.com)
eva longoria is just about as big as hers - but it's still fab. (www.purseblog.com)

2)GORGEOUS GLOVES-

so chic, so classy. long gloves, especially in rich red or bold black tones, brought out the lady in us.


nymag.com showed off these fierce options.
3)BOLD BOBS -
honestly, need we say more?

fab. (prohaircut.com)
fabber. (though we still think she's a very bland/blank girl, trying super hard to be a style icon) (people.com)
fabbest. (hairstyle.com)

4)MINI-MI FASHIONS -
yeah. we agree. it was odd and wierd and annoying at times. but just like an infant who won't stop throwing up and burping, all we could really say to this is, "awww. how cute"

tyra trotted out the tots and their momses. (tyrashow.com)

this is now infamous. jolie and her lil tyke. something tells me these were freebies though. i can't really see her buying this. plus she wears clothes well, but i don't think she necessarily picks them well. no hate in our blood. trust. (bagbliss.com)




WE LOATHED

1)OVERDONE JEWELRY

honestly, we can't look at these jewels, these celebs, and these photos without hearing the line "you're just a jigaboo...trying to find something to do" from spike lee's school daze movie.


it's colorful, but def not cute. try again sean kingston. (fulgerica.com)


we are positive that young joc caught a neck cramp from this. (fulgerica.com)





2) DRASTIC WEIGHT LOSS
enough said.



so sad. (blayreport.com)


so glad she got her weight up. even if it took getting preggers to do it. (eonline.com)

3)HIGH WAISTED PANTS
on second thought. we quiet like this. but seeing it on these celebs made us change our minds!

say bye to those pants jess. (fashionbuzz.typepad.com)

unfort, things got even worse for barton after wearing these pants. (fashionbuzz.typepad.com)
