With Homecoming on the horizon, the hunt is on for the perfect dress to accompany you to your magical return to the school dance floor.

One look that never gets old is the coveted Little Black Dress.

First off, you can never go wrong with black.
Second, it’s simple, sleek and sexy.
No doubt.

But this year, fashionistas have been turning to a new twist to your classic LBD, and are donning a more eye-catching sparkly version of your favorite LBD:

How can we say no to something that looks that good?

Even though our weather is not cooperating, technically, it is Fall.

What are your favorite Fall items you’re itching to wear?

My Fall must-have that is impatiently waiting to see beyond my closet doors, is my collection of blazers.
There is something about the clean cut lines and the structure of the blazer that I love.

Ladies, it’s time to consider the versatility of the fitted blazer that is now being debuted on runways and streets in a glorious array of colors that makes you think, “I need one in every color!”

One of my favorite bold colors: cobalt blue!

This Spring’s 2011 Ready to Wear lines all debuted beautiful white blazers that would look gorgeous atop a skirt or dress.

So even after buying a formal dress or gown, you can still be fashion forward till the very end of the night!

As Haute Generation is on the forefront of trendy gowns and dresses, we must pay homage to a designer who always brings the most beautiful gowns to the runways.

Designer Monique Lhuillier’s Spring 2011 Collection is to die for!

She used a special red tone that they call poppy red.
It is so ridiculously bold but beautiful, you can’t help but stare at it.

Don’t you just want to try on that second gown?

Monique Lhuillier has also mastered other bright tones:

These colors remind me of gemstones on a chunky necklace or bracelet.

As we’ve mentioned before, the perfect white dress is always fitting for any occassion.

The one shoulder dress looks amazing.

Metallics have been a big hit on the runways this fall, and are still making its splash into spring as well.

Florals of course, are the ultimate in thing for Spring.
Monique has both gowns and dresses that are garden-worthy.

Now, these designer gowns can be your ultimate inspiration to finding a dress that is perfect for you.
But you don’t have to just wish to wear a dress like that.

Realistically, why spend up to $1,000 on a gown when you can find the look-a-like for only $100 – $200?

Here’s my smart shopping advice for you: has the designer-like gowns and dresses you need for your next party, wedding or just a night to feel and look fabulous, without creating a gaping hole in your bank account.
Who says you can’t look great and be economically wise?

So don’t waste any more time wishing upon a gown!
Your dress awaits you.

Fashionably yours,

A brave color that looks aboslutely splended on a bronzed body, and is now being embraced on the runways previewing 2011’s Spring lines is:


Betsey Johnson’s bicycle runway showcased a variety of models in playful skirts that flounced around in the bright turquoise.

Here are two of my favorites from designer Peter Som’s Spring 2011 Ready to Wear line:

This tropical color is such a head turner because it’s almost unexpected in its vivid hue.

Once upon the runways of New York Fashion Week, there was a delightful and talented designer who is a veteran to the elite fashion world and has triumphed through the changing tides of fashion.

His name is Oscar de la Renta.
And this past week, he brought one of the most fantastic collections to the Spring 2011 Collections that were being presented all over New York.

These gowns with a bouffant to it look like something a Disney princess would don to a ball.

If there was ever a black gown I’d love to wear, it would be this Oscar de la Renta number.

Now onto some of his more colorful masterpieces…

This jungle-green color is going to be big this Spring.

Regardless of what event you’re going to, you can find your inspiration through these fantasy-like gowns by Oscar de la Renta.

Don’t these gowns take you back into a world of make-believe?
They’re truly magical!

One of Fall’s trends to watch out for is the color red.

And let me tell you, it is time for us women as a whole to embrace this bold, empowering and daring shade.

Be on the lookout for red in styles of gowns and dresses that are both casual and street friendly, to red-carpet-worthy.

During Fashion Week in New York, designer from the show Project Runway, Christian Siriano, aka “the haute mess,” brought the color of red to the forefront of fashion with this gorgeous gown!

You have to admire the color, the shape and the texture of this gown.

Designer Monique Lhuillier’s Spring 2011 Ready to Wear line also brought beautiful tones of red to the runway:

There’s something about this hue… it’s so gorgeous and rich!

There are more casual styles of dresses to wear in the shade of red.
