Donna Karan Fall 2009 Collection

June 30, 2009





Donna Karan has always been one of my favorite designers. Because I am the quintessential minimalist, I love her no fuss clothes that are always elegant and oh so chic. Karan opts for jackets and draped jersey tops; sculpted exaggerated shoulders; wrapped and belted waists. And of course her dresses were long, draped, and goddess like. And what Chocolate Fashionista doesn’t want to feel like a goddess?

MJ’s Effect on Fashion

June 26, 2009
Michael Jackson was not only a trendsetter in music, he was a trendsetter in fashion. Who can remember with the debut of the Thriller LP came the red leather jacket with zippers, the glitter glove and glitter socks, and the penny loafer. Over the years we have seen him transform in appearance but his music always remained the same–unique, cutting edge, and exciting. With ten solo albums under his belt, Michael Jackson left us with a legacy of music that will continue to bring smiles and light for years to come. The Chocolate Fashion Blog will pay tribute to Michael Jackson and his style starting now.
