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!

Spring Trends: Saved by the Bell

You grew up watching it, but did you ever think to look at it as your source of fashion inspiration? Colored denim and smoking slippers were Lisa Turtle’s daily uniform. Jessie Spano lived in denim on denim. Peplum and cropped tops were Kelly Kapowski’s signature items. Pastels, floral pants, and neon accents were the daily norm. Turn on an episode of everyone’s favorite high schoolers and chances are you will spot the latest fashions. Minus the unfortunate hairstyles, who knew 20 years later we’d be copying their style?
