Beyond the Bell Curve

This sweatshirt, friends. THIS. SWEATSHIRT. I can’t recall a time that a black sweatshirt triggered such feelings of joy and intrigue than when I borrowed (did not steal) my sister’s black NKOTB sweatshirt from her drawer. This bell-sleeved, cropped sweatshirt from Levi’s is about a hundred times softer and must less previously owned (as in, not at all) than my sister’s sweatshirt. It conjures up effortless magic! We kept this look overall in a neutral & monochromatic pallet to help fully embody the magic elements of the sweatshirt. My heart actually skipped a beat as I imagined styling this piece under a pair of overalls and sneakers, so let me just take a deep breath here. The midi-length skirt pairs sweetly with this stripped mules from Intentionally Blank. If a mule is a shape that you love (and we’re betting you do!) be sure to give this new shape a try. It has a round toe and doesn’t come up as high on the sides as most mules, giving an overall softer look. It’s got the tiniest heal which is perfect for any event. So whether you’re “hangin’ tough” (had to bring the NKOTB reference back around) or laying low, we love everything about this look for you.

Take a Double

We love the opportunity to bring lightness to fashion. FUN is one of our values at Minx and we see this look as a clear personification of that value. We are always excited to showcase denim on the blog in all of its incredible, intricate, forms. The colorful embroidery on this Levi’s jacket embody Spring–its as if new Spring blooms from the trees fell perfectly on Grace’s shoulders as we walked through the botanical gardens. The pattern is vibrant and lends itself to matching all different colors and styles. We brought out the pinks in the jacket with pink accessories and an otherwise a blue pallet for it to really pop. No need to banish your denim pieces to the back of the closet- have a little fun with your denim looks this Spring!

Forage

You know the feeling when you look at a picture and you just immediately squeal with delight? It just bursts out of you! Well, that’s precisely what happened when we saw this photo-set of Carrie in our Levi’s Utility Jumpsuit. There’s something so perfectly contrasted about that piece in the river & amongst perfect yellow blooms of the botanical gardens. And it’s no shock that this jumpsuit is comfy, as evidenced by Carrie doing full-on hand stands in between shots. Even with all of the acrobatics, this jumpsuit is tailored to hug your shape perfectly so that YOU are wearing the piece and it’s not wearing/tugging/bunching you. We see this jumpsuit as a unique canvas for you to add your own personal flare to, keeping in mind that the backup plan can always be splashing around in a river!

Blank Stares

At Minx we love embracing a little kitsch into our style – it’s important to not take yourself or your style so seriously. When we are investing into our style and into the image we are creating for ourself each day, it can feel like every move we make must be perfect. Truth is – what’s most important is to have fun. Fun is one of our shop’s values and it’s an important one. There are subtle ways to incorporate fun into your wardrobe, perhaps with some hidden details or an unpredictable color or fabric. On the other hand, there are hamburger sweaters that are an obvious statement of joy. We hope you can find some joy in your creative fashion expression!

In Your Dreams

Minx has been built on not only a love of and deep connection to fashion and visual expression, but also to music. Connection to live performance, music history and trends, and melody are all foundational to who Minx is. We recognize that music and fashion are sides of the same coin of expression – it would be hard for us to have one without the other. As music trends and taste change and return, so, we find, does fashion. We hope you find that these inexplicable forces are serving you well in how you navigate your world and that Minx is able to help join them together. Imagine the music throughout your life that has shaped who you are and how you see the world. If you were to visualize it – what colors would you see? We see this process similarly with fashion. What tune do you hear in your head when you wear a floral print? How about a leather moto jacket? Does the rhythm of your steps change with the change of your attire? We hope you will explore these ideas within yourself and as you step outside of your fashion comfort zone, maybe let your new favorite song lead the way? Sure, maybe you’ve never worn a crop top. But something about blasting the new Beyonce album kind of makes you wanna give it a try. Go with that! And we’ll be here to give you compassionate and authentic guidance while you make those choices. You got this!

Set Up

It’s no secret: we LOVE sets! Maybe you’ll remember this wonderfully tropical two-piece set from the summer. Now we have a more weather appropriate sweater set that can easily take you from running errands to a nice dinner out without much restyling. Toss on your favorite, go-to sneakers with this look for the day, and when the evening rolls around add some tights and black booties and you’re ready! For added warmth, you could easily layer a chambray or flannel shirt underneath to add some additional color and interest to this look. If you love a sweater dress but also desire flexibility, this sweater set would be perfect. Wear these two pieces together, or combine them with your well-loved winter essentials and you are good to go! Also, quick moment of silent reverence for this velvet, embroidered bag from Johnny Was. Such a luscious and functional piece, we are beyond obsessed.

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!
