Inspiration: Winter Fashion Trends 2012

Tis' the season to look dashing, fa la la la la, la la la la !
Don we now our highest fashion, fa la la la la, la la la la. 

I scoured the pages of Vogue to find the winter fashion trends and selected my 10 favorites for seasonal gatherings. These trends are easy to look great in and if you are like me, you would rather make these statement pieces rather than just buy them online!

She has often times questioned her own identity, yet she gladly responds to anyone who asks, “ I am black and I am a part of the human race”.
