Because Summer is Coming to an End!

Summer seems to have passed by so quickly this year! In a few weeks it will be September and about time to start a new season which is a little bittersweet, because although I love the summer season and am sad to see it go, fall brings a new beginning to fashion world and I think it is about time for new changes! I am sad to say that the past Itsola season's collection, which is the spring/summer 2010, will be the last collection for now. But as one chapter ends, another begins! This summer we have been working with Jane Oh in preparation for the shipment of her fall/winter 2010 collection and her new spring/summer 2011 collection. Be very excited to see her line come out because it is absolutely breathtaking! Definitely be on the look out for her take on the 'little black dress', and check out her website @

Summer is not completely over and there are still some great pieces from the summer collection so visit Itsola's online store @!

Because I Saw It on the Runway!

Color trends are very important when it comes the what you wear and this season will include some beautifully brilliant colors that will go quite nicely with your nails! Some of the same color trends for nail polish can also be applied to what we will be seeing on clothes. For the more toned down neutral earth tones we will be seeing shades of olive, camel and pale blue, and for the more vibrant shades we will be seeing bright lipstick type red, rich purples and metallics. I find fall colors to be very rich and so perfectly perfect for any outfit and for any occasion. For some inspiration, I suggest you check out Topshop's 'The Outsiders' collection. It has a great lookbook for the season and amazing key pieces that can be mixed and matched with your own wardrode!

Because It Matches My Nails!

Fall is rapidly approaching and with the new season comes new trends! One of the biggest trends is nail polish and I believe the fall season will bring very bold colors! I think the colors you choose to put on your nails say a lot about your personality and this season will be filled with very big personalities. All shades of purple, metallics, neutrals, and gem tones will be very popular so there will be plenty of colors to experiment with. I usually pick out a few favorite colors of the season and from that I choose the color that best matches my clothes and how I'm feeling. One of my favorite brands of nail polish is OPI for Sephora. They have endless choices of colors perfect for every personality! Some of their collections that you'll defintely want to check out in preparation for the fall trends are OPI's havana nights, autumn & eve, and film noir collections. It will be a season to take chances so don't be afraid of your color choices!

How I Would Wear the Orange Racerback!

Itsola has a light and vibrant orange pintucked racerback tank and it is absolutely perfect for days when you just want to stick out and be noticed! And if that's how you're feeling right now then I have the perfect outfit for you! I would wear an Itsola's orange silk pintucked racerback tank with navy tap shorts and a navy/creme sailor stripe jacket from American Apparel, shoes from Nasty Gal and a necklace from House of Harlow. I think a simple accessory with this outfit adds just the right touch!
