Rent The Runway

- Collaborators, Fashion

Ladies, we’ve all been there. The stressful “I have nothing to wear” stage of fury when trying to plan an outfit for a big event. My room can be completely spotless until I flip through my wardrobe and can’t find the perfect piece for whatever event is coming up. In an instant, tops are tossed and shoes cover the floor like you just walked into “the land of misfit looks”. Rent The Runway saves you from the stress of searching your…

Accessorize for Winter from Head to Toe

- Fashion

Let’s be real, the cold sucks. I mean, who doesn’t prefer red lips to red noses?  But if we’re looking at the cocoa mug half full, the cold is perfect for layering.  That goes for accessories too!  Not like layering 3 hats on top of each other, but making sure when you accessorize, your conscious of the season.   I kept my love for floppy hats winter-ready with this one by BCBG.  The brim is wider than average and it’s leather…

My Take on the Mini-Backpack Trend

- Fashion

I went through my four years of high school with probably as boring of a backpack as it gets, the typical black Jansport backpack. After graduating and starting college, the love story between my Jansport and I slowly faded. I found there were so many chic and easy alternatives to a backpack not only for school purposes, but that could be used as a fashion statement too. Since I was still adamant about sticking to my favorite color, (black, duh),…

Transition Your Look from Day to Night

- Fashion

A versatile outfit can take you from 9-5 to 5-9 without much effort.  With a few steps, you can make the transition seamlessly and therefore get more wear out of your look.  And all things considered, don’t we all want to get the most out of our investments (including investment pieces)?   For example, I transitioned this Bowie sweatshirt from Zara, leather athletic shorts and Doc Martens from day to night.  My friend recently came to visit from Virginia Beach and…

Street Chic Blazers

- Fashion

Take it from a Washingtonian, you can take your blazer from The Hill to the street with relative ease.  They’ve gone beyond business professional and make a perfect pairing for Fall street style.  Don’t get me wrong, you of course can still wear it with slacks and go into the office.  But when 5 o’clock rolls around trade your stress for distressed {jeans} and head to the local watering hole.   Each of the blazers from this post I got…

From the Beach to the Street

- Fashion

Most of us were dreaming of an endless summer, but darlings, those days are coming to an end.  This swim season was all about off the shoulder bikinis and high-legged one pieces and now that the season is ending you’re ready to trade in your suits for scarves.  But you don’t have to! We took this one swimsuit and styled it in two different ways.  This is the Good Times suit from CHRLDR.  It’s cut high in the front and low…

Linen Lovers

Let’s all be honest, linen is a dream fabric.  It’s so lightweight keeps you cool in the warm weather (I mean, will this heat wave ever end?!) and it’s chic for layering when the Fall decides to grace us with it’s presence… seriously… any day now Fall… There are several brands that have linen pieces in their collection but the selection of linen at CHRLDR is just beyond.  There are basic tanks and tees in their Noir collection and they…
