Summer Velvet

August 30, 2016

Velvet is typically thought of as a winter fabric, and a dressy one at that. It’s soft, tactile and takes color beautifully, so it’s a shame to relegate it to the back of the closet until the holiday season. In the current fashion cycle, where high and low, cocktail and casual and tough and tender mix effortlessly together for an edgy look, why not wear velvet in the summer? The best part, is that you can layer it up and get extra mileage out of the pieces as you wear them into fall and winter.

Hailey Baldwin, model and sometimes Justin Bieber flame, rocks a green velvet slip dress on the streets of NYC.

This rich blue swimsuit takes the luxe look to the beach, although we question what it might feel like when wet.

Perhaps the designer was inspired by this shot from a 1974 edition of Vogue Paris.

This sexy camisole had us at first blush. Pop it under a jacket or chunky sweater coat for fall.

The richness of the fabric takes the edge off of an acidic color for this slip dress; trimmed in black and accessorized with sneakers, of course! Add a tee shirt to take into the fall.

Ballerina Girls

March 23, 2016

Fashion trends emerge in interesting ways. Sometimes the runways influence what is to come, and sometimes it is just something that the cool girls just know, and it spreads like wildfire to the rest of the population. Case in point:
As I was walking to the gym this morning, the mannekins were being changed in the window of the Banana Republic flagship store. The only memorable thing I noticed were the shoes…flat, pointy lace up ballerinas were being put on every foot.

Later, I looked at my instagram feed, and a few of the most influencial style bloggers were wearing a version of those shoes. I’ve been noticing them a lot lately, at all price points and materials.

Let’s just call it right now; this is going to be the shoe of the season!!

Urban Garden

December 6, 2012

Delicate florals added a feminine touch to fashion for spring. Often mixed with other patterns, these sweet florals had a street-wise edge when tailored into modern items.

Marc by Marc Jacobs added an 80’s twist to pattern mixing with patch-worked florals combined with gingham checks.



Phillip Lim took sweet florals and mixed them with a street chic vibe.



Retailer J.Crew got into the act, mixing soft garden florals with racing striped pants.
