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…

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…

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…
