1. Feather Hair Clips
Yup, I tried this one out. Back in August, I had my hairdresser put in a small, neutral colored feather behind my right ear. It was hardly noticeable. It was "permanently" affixed (like a hair extension) and lasted about a month. It was fun. I felt young and "cool." But I think I got that one out of my system!
2. Colored Denim
I love this trend. And I think it really began in 2010. Either way, I actually don't own a pair of my own. I'm a little surprised about this. I think it has something to do with my hatred for jeans shopping. They never fit right - too big, too short etc. I'd love to snag a pair of green or blue skinnies this year.
3. Animal Prints
I've been rocking animal prints for quite sometime. I love that they've become so popular. To date, I own an animal print jacket, shirt, pair of pants, multiple pairs of shoes and a drawer full of jewelry. It's one of those trends, that when styled, can look professional, classic or risque. I love it!
4. Cake Pops
I absolutely love the way these look. But I'm not a huge fan of how they taste. In general, I don't love cake, so I haven't met a cake pop that I really like. I think the consistency of the cake ball is a bit strange (wet & mushy). On the other hand, I love the chocolate covered oreo pops people are making! Check out my Bakerella post (the real master behind Cake Pops) from 2009.
I definitely fell prey to these pricey stickers in 2011. Not only are the designs just fun (especially for summer), but they're so easy and convenient to apply. The fact that I don't have to wait for them to dry makes the nearly $10 price tag worthwhile for me. I'm a fan of Sally Hansen designs.
6. Cheap 'n Chic Collections
2011 marked the year for Missoni at Target and Versace at H&M. Both collaborations sold out in record time. Fights literally broke out at Target stores, while the collection completely crashed their website. I didn't partake in either launch and don't own any items from either. I think the stuff was cool, but I refuse to wait in line or fight crowds. It's just not worth it to me.
