Breaking the Rules

J.Crew Factory is one of my favorite spots for seasonal staples, and loads of color at great prices. I had the opportunity of hosting a styling event last night at my local J.Crew Factory store, explaining “breaking the rules,” mastering some of the trickiest fashion trends, and expanding your closet by doing so.

A chambray shirt and pencil skirt were two must-have staples I discussed to expand your wardrobe. I did a 101 session in pairing colored denim & trousers for all occasions, as well as how to mix prints tastefully. I had so much fun styling twelve looks showing how to wear each from the office, to the weekend, to a night out.

The launch of the new J.Crew Factory website, makes shopping easily accessible.

After the style session, it was time to shop. My mom & friend, Debbie did a great job styling color blocked looks.

How cute is this Crewcuts look? They have the most adorable kids clothes!

Minty shades make a statement.

Pointed toe & a bow.

There are endless possibilities with the polka dot printed top.

  The J.Crew staff made the experience really laid back and fun. They were so great. I loved discussing style pairings and personal shopping with everyone. Thanks to everyone who came!

Fall Trend Report – Color

I’m ecstatic for the upcoming Fall trends. The invasion of leather, isn’t going to be taken lightly, along with fur and sleek metallics. Embellishment is on the rise, splattering everything from pants to pumps. Bordeaux drenches everything from shoes, to skirts, to leather jackets. This Summer has been in print overload, but there’s much more in store; think brocades and damasks, psychedelic flair and a trip into the wild. Menswear inspired designs escalate, and art deco minimalism is subtly chic. Let’s break it down by starting with color.

Tagged the color of the season, bordeaux looks super sleek donned in red hot leather and printed patterns. Accessories in the color palette are an instant style update. Boots, handbags, and gloves are risk-free options that are right on trend.

Bold blues serve as chic LBDs, and updated outerwear. Retire your usual black handbag, for a bold statement against any hue. Black and blue are this season’s power couple.

The “no white after Labor Day” rule is long gone. This season is all about chic separates and structured LWDs. Don’t be afraid to don handbags and pumps in the neutral shade.

When in doubt this Fall.. think pink. Find the shade that best suits you, from cotton candy to Schiaparelli pink.

Nars & Thakoon Collaboration

There’s something about this amazing collection of nail candy that has Summer summed up at first glance. Inspired by the designer’s SS 2012 collection, the lively vibrant hues channel the Indian Spice Market and will add the perfect pop of color to any Summer ensemble you plan to don. Plan to swipe up the limited edition lacquer on May 1st.

Beauty Trend: Tangerine Nails

The Pantone color of the year, Tangerine Tango, is bright and bold.  The same description marks true for this season’s nails. Bonus: tangerine is universally flattering and looks great with a tan!
