Fringe Benefits

- Fashion

Every outfit needs a little something “extra” and this season’s updated fringe is just that.  This attention-seeking accent is a trend that has been seen on dresses, pants and accessories every few seasons.  After the fringe fancy when “The Great Gatsby” was re-released in 2013 and everyone wanted to be a flapper, the trend died down for a little before making a comeback this season. Fringe was swinging from the runways on skirts, dresses and it even had a denim…

Getting All Tied Up in Robe Coats

- Fashion

Fall is my favorite season of the year.  Boots and bonfires.  Layering and leaves.  I’m all in.  The only thing I would pass on, is feeling cold.  Wouldn’t it be great if we could be as cozy as we are in our bathrobes while still rocking a chic look? Well, thanks to the latest runway trend, we can!  The newly imagined robe coat gives you comfort without sacrificing style. This Lavish Alice coat is linked below and it’s totally appropriate…

Denim-on-Denim Diaries feat. Dear John

- Fashion

In the 1950s, Bing Crosby walked into an upscale hotel in Vancouver, Canada.  Despite being, well, Bing Crosby, the hotel team almost denied him entry because he had been wearing an all-denim outfit.  Levis heard about what happened and sent him a tailored, all-denim tuxedo.  Crosby may have dreamed of a White Christmas, but I doubt even he could have dreamed of how his “Canadian tux” would impact fashion even half a century later.     Denim-on-denim has become increasingly…

Rule Breaking – The Pink and Red Trend

- Fashion

Rules are meant to be broken and that holds especially true for some previously taboo fashion rules.  Things like “No White After Labor Day”, pattern mixing, and even color combos like blue and black or pink and red that were once fashion nos are now trending for Spring 2018.   Red and pink are two power colors for both females and males.  It does take a little bit of a daring personality to break rules of any kind but especially…

Keeping Cool in Cashmere

- Fashion

It’s no surprise that when someone says “cashmere” you automatically think of sweater weather.  We know, sitting by the fire, drinking hot cocoa in your cozy cashmere.  We get it.  But who says you can’t keep cool in cashmere too?  Take “no sweaters in summer” and throw that fashion stigma right out the window with “no white after Labor Day” and we’ll show you how.   Cashmere is a very fine fabric, not like your coarser wools or heavy cottons,…

American Style, Italian Leather – My Armadio

- Fashion

We love all things Italian – luxury, food, bread, coffee and definitely leather.  Our Armadio bags are no exception to that!  We typically wear our bags more than any other piece of clothing so before we considered Armadio, we wanted to make sure these bags were going to last and were versatile enough that they can be worn daily.  {Spoiler Alert} They are.   Armadio bags are direct to consumer, which means that we as the consumer can get these bags without the…

Statement Skirts

- Fashion

Look ma, no pants!  Statement skirts are everything right now and while this is actually a skort, it still made a statement.   Rocking a mini skirt in the winter is bold because, well, because it’s winter.  I love pairing them with sheer black tights and flat ankle booties.  The tights do little to keep your legs warm but at least you have the flat booties so you can move quickly back into the heat, if I’m being honest.  This skirt…

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…
