Fashion inspiration comes from a variety of places. Most of mine come from fashion news magazines, people watching, celebrities and news feeds.

With that said I have come up with a short list of fashion trends that we should all be thrown to the curb and waved goodbye as of right now! Love it or leave it you decide but the following are some of the best and worst fashion trends of 2013…unfortunately we have all been victims so do not feel bad.

And with Nordstrom, Macy’s and Bloomy’s as your number one shopping destination, you can rest assured you’ll dress to impress at every occasion this season. Not to mention I didn’t forget to include budget friendly but great pieces.
