Unapologetic

Monochromatic. You may hear this word thrown around a lot when talking about an all-black outfit, or an all-neutrals look. We are here to show you the monochromatic looks don’t need to stop at neutrals! Whatever shade you are really digging this Winter can be translated into an amazing monochromatic look. To achieve this, we chose the purple/cool-toned-family and utilized different shades of purple to create a cohesive look. With the color-tone of your outfit consistent, feel free to play with textures and fabrics to add interest and elevation to your look. We hope you feel inspired to rock your favorite shade from head to toe!

Bending the Rules

Let’s be honest – the fun and creativity of fashion and self-expression can kind of get pushed aside by “rules” you hear about as your brought up. Things like: you cant wear white after Labor Day (where did that rule even come from?!), or you cant wear black and brown together, or this body shape can only wear this silhouette. These parameters probably originated with good intentions, but at this point we are ready to leave those in the past! No matter what the season, you shouldn’t feel obligated to banish some shades to the back of the closet. Pastel shades are a typically-found Spring and Summertime staple, but why not in winter? Winter white is a thing, after all! This beautiful lilac coat is the perfect winter jacket that isn’t your typical darker color shade. Everything around you may say to Go Dark this Winter, but don’t feel like you have to if those lilacs and pale yellows and creams are calling your name! Fashion rules are meant to be broken!

Take My Hand

We are so excited to have a double feature this week on the blog! You hear words thrown around like “dressing up” and “formal” and “events” – and while we all may use these words interchangeably, they have very different meanings for each individual. There is no cookie-cutter way to dress. While it is respectful to dress according to all specific instructions presented by those putting on a certain event, when its left open-ended we hope you will feel inspired to truly be YOU even when dressing more formal than usual. These looks below, while certainly not black-tie formal, are still elevated looks with two very different aesthetics. This red plaid coat from Vilagallo is a great combination of masculine silhouettes and fabrics, with true feminine details (the lining of this coat has the sweetest illustrations!) Worn with a button-down and straight leg denim from Levis, we are definitely playing up menswear with this look. On the other hand, lace and velvet is quintessential feminine formality and we have shown that with a new, modern flare. This high-neck lace detail blouse is perfect for layering or standing out on its own. These wintertime fabrics make a statement all their own without any effort. Above all else, we hope you will stay true to yourself for all of your formal holiday events this year!

Who Run The World

Sometimes you just toss on a mini skirt, some sparkle boots, and show the world what a bad ass chick you are! The demure, modest look of your typical LBD is nice but why not mix it up a bit for a night out? This mini moto skirt from Loveriche paired with this pin-up inspired top from Voodoo Vixen is the perfect combo for adding a bit of edge to the usual all-black look. We loved pairing this daring combo with our Levis Sherpa Jacket to add another nod to vintage fashion and some additional texture and color. This look is sure to turn heads and you’ll feel unstoppable in it!

The changing leaves, the hot cocoa, the holidays, the COATED DENIM – all things we look forward to in the cooler seasons. Coated denim is a really nice way to merge the comfort of your favorite pair of jeans with the interest and edginess of a shiny, leather-like, coating. These are just as effortless to style as jeans but instantly elevate your look. Here, we have styled a pair of Paige coated denim with some strappy heels from Chelsea Crew, but these pants could easily be paired with some booties or knee-high boots and transition easily into colder months. And this dark purple/wine color is an obsession of ours this season. Perhaps its the new millennial pink?

Think that all your light-toned florals are banished to the back of the closet now that Fall is here? Think again! The key to rocking your pastel patterns is to find them on fabrics that will keep you warm, are able to be layered, or that have some textural interest. All of these things you will find in this By Timo mini dress. The high neck and long sleeves make this dress completely Autumn appropriate without drowning you out in a sea of black and neutral-tones (not that we don’t LOVE neutrals, because whoah, we love ’em!) If bright colors are your thing – let that colorful flag fly all year ’round! These velvet Mary Janes from Chelsea Crew tie this look all together with the jewel-like velvet material – and how good would these shoes look over some black tights?!

Big Wheels

Folks, we are BACK! And it is quite possibly our favorite time of year: Fall! Okay, maybe our favorite time is holiday. Or maybe Springtime. Okay, we can’t decide. But we are smack dab in the middle of Fall transition and we are LOVING it. We are starting to shake out our sweaters from the backs of our closets and they feel like the warm, familiar hug of a good friend you haven’t seen in awhile. It’s glorious. But let’s face it, 60 degree mornings turn into 85 degree afternoons and that makes wearing cable knits and wool sweaters out of the question. So, for now, don’t pack away your shirt dresses just yet! Just be sure to layer up and you’ll be able to change your look according to the weather. Florals are certainly not just a spring/summertime staple, they can be worn well into the wintery season. Consider a darker floral or this beautiful mustard shade. Add your favorite light duster or denim jacket and you’re prepared for whatever the weather may bring!
