Burberry Prorsum Pre-Fall 2015 Collection!

Starting Pre-Fall 2015 with Burberry Prorsum is a great thing! But that's coming from a Christopher Bailey fan. As always, I had a hard time picking my favorite pieces from the Burberry Prorsum Pre-Fall 2015 Collection. It goes without saying, Burberry's signature is making clothes look effortlessly luxurious - and this season is no exception. The thought behind this Pre-Fall 2015 collection was shorter, more feminine and more structured - which isn't very normal for a brand that use to make motorbike inspired clothing. More importantly, two of the three directions dominate Burberry's 'thing': coats. Burberry's very big on coats - remember their Burberry Prorsum RTW Spring/Summer 2013 Collection? It's pretty clear that if you're looking for a statement coat, you need to look forward to this collection hitting stores. 

That's not just the height of this collection; take a closer look at the white deep V-lace dress that belongs in the more feminine category. Also belonging in this category is the new lady-like spin on structured biker jackets: shearling-lined and neutral colored. Also worth checking out is the zipped tamed sheepskin and leopard printed coats, the black knee-high boots and the color-blocking jersey inspired coats.

Here are my 10 of my favorite looks:

Here is the rest of the collection:

Pre-Fall 2015 is off to a great start, I can't wait to see what other designers have in store for us. What did you think about Burberry Prorsum's Pre-Fall 2015 Collection? Let me know in the comments below!

Hey, What Happened to Pop Rock?

I didn't move under a pop-rock-less rock but maybe - just maybe - the Pop Rock singers and bands did! As I turned on my car this morning I was pleasantly surprised by music that I can only call a strike of luck or being at the right place at the right time. Pop Rock, a music genre mostly owned by people who can't really hit high notes or as I like to call it...sing-along-music. Not hating, just wondering where all the people, that made my teenage years live-able, are? It was never about their vocal range or their knowledge about music, it was simply about their rebellious side and their ability to cheer me up! They could sing about anything to a beat that could someday end up on the radio!

So 'hey, what happened to pop rock music?' is really more a question of concern than a question of mockery and shade. Pop Rock made it so easy to listen to a complete album - I hate singles. Maybe that's because I can really a appreciate an artist who actually knows that an album is supposed to be cohesive. If I want to hear two genres, I'll make a playlist! If I decide to buy your album it better be as cohesive as cohesive can get!

I'll forever remember the days when I shut my door to play Ashlee Simpson's and Kelly Clarkson's album very loudly, and just to be clear I didn't have to go look under a rock to find them! They were my radio click away and the answers to almost every single one of my questions - not this one though! Again, not hating but Pop Rock used to be a big deal and I really enjoyed it. Now I enjoy Indie Music, or like my friends love to call it - bands no one will every know. I just hope I won't be asking 'hey, what happened to Indie Music?' anytime soon!
