Too Fashion Foward?

Is there such a thing?
My boyfriend has always said I catch on to trends too quickly (not sure the true fashionistas would agree with his kind accolade) which is not meant to be the compliment I take it as.
Is it possible that you can get in too early and end up looking like (gasp!) a fool to the rest of the population? 
Let me explain....
Bold Floral Blazer from
A few months ago I jumped on the bold, fabulous, floral blazer trend. Yay, totally loved it, made me feel super cool, on trend and fun......until the little old lady down the street stopped me to tell me how much she liked my jacket! Certainly the reaction I was after but not quite the generation I was looking to attract! I know for sure floral, bold blazers were in sometime ago but its not a tribute I was making but rather a reinvention, at least that's what I thought. Is being 'fashionable' getting strange stares from most of the general public or getting a nod from the chick that works at Vogue? Perhaps being fashion forward is actually anti-fashionable? I guess it all comes back to that old adage about making yourself happy! 
Not one to be easily deterred I am out today in my pastel mint green jeans and my new pale pink lace embroidery top, hoping I don't get mistaken for fairy floss!
Yum! Fairy floss

Almost Obsessed?

Fabulous Scanlan & Theodore Dresses
So I went to a wedding on the weekend and it's fair to say I am almost obsessed with weddings. Now let me explain..... of course I love the romance, the dress, the flowers, the food, the slow dancing (you don't get to slow dance often enough in this modern world) but what I, selfishly, love most is a damn good excuse to dress up! I adore dresses and apart from the races, there seems to be less and less call to wear your hottest dress (read - not hooker dress). I go mad for a great dress, Scanlan & Theodore are one of my biggest weaknesses. I would love to wear a fancy pants dress once a week please but there is just no cause to do it. I spend so much cash on my frocks and they seem to hang out in my wardrobe more than they hang off me. Is it wrong/misguided that I am so excited by an excuse to dress up (not to mention give my highest heels a workout)? I long for the days of old where you wore your greatest finery to the local shops....currently I head to the shops in my neon pink J Brand jeans and my staple white T by Alexander Wang, not that I don't love them, don't get me wrong, BUT I love dressing up more! 
So hurry up and get married please!
