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!

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!

Dressed in Denim with Levi’s Made and Crafted

Denim for Spring: Boyfriend Jeans

Many a Minx has a fond memory of an old boyfriend’s jeans tucked away within their mind. Perhaps you like to take out the image of these jeans from time to time, when you are feeling nostalgic and perhaps a bit lackluster when it comes to your present wardrobes.

How did those jeans fit so perfectly? They hang just so on his hips (and then yours when you finally got your hands on them)  They were worn into perfection. The first time you slipped them on it was love. The soft hand of the distressed denim, the authentic look of being lived in. The magic endowed to clothes that are uniquely valued and cherished, not unlike the Valentine Rabbit’s Nursery Magic. Wardrobe Magic!

Levis Made & Crafted

Many blue jean companies have boasted that they have created the perfect Boyfriend Jean. Levis Strauss Made & Crafted has delivered to us not only a brilliant jean, but the true and worthy reincarnation of the jean that you thought was only a treasured memory.

Your boyfriend’s jeans were undoubtedly Levis, so who more perfect to attempt a stunning replacement!

Levis has gone back to their roots with their line Made & Crafted. Each pair of jeans is lovingly made in the span of about a day or two, using the highest quality denim and paying meticulous detail to the sewing and distressing of each pair of jeans. These are no mass production assembly line creation and it shows!

They are truly a work of art. Minxes around the world will collectively rejoice when they try these babies on. They are the perfect jeans to cuff with tennis shoes, to wear with sandals and tank tops, of to dress up with a heel and blouse.

Mule Shoes for the Minxes!

The lines of this mule are elegant and understated. They appear to be the ideal vessel for a Minx’s legs to be secured in. Like a vase containing a spring cutting, legs will be on display when paired with these neutral and very versatile wedge heel mules.

How to Wear Boyfriend Jeans and What to Wear Them With

The brilliance of the Boyfriend Jeans is their simplicity. So keep it simple if nothing else. He pulls off the look with nothing more than an old T-shirt or button up.

Follow the lead of the initial inspiration! We paired our jeans with this effective and chic blue button up. It is our take to the iconic blue-collar shirt, but a bit more feminine!

Just Minxes, Just Female

Because sometimes you want something that offers the history and grace of a Japanese influence delivered with a modern city-smarts styling. Sometimes you want your avant-garde served up with a hearty dose of comfort.

For those moments when other jackets and sweaters will not suffice: we suggest this kimono by Just Female.
