SB Chronicles: SXSW 2017

30 Mar

This SXSW was epic, to say the least. From chatting with Kristen Bell, seeing the SONY Lost In Music showcase with The Chainsmokers performing up close, attending FRYE Days, visiting the Mazda Studio, checking out the Twitter house, and talking with one of my favorite boss babes: Amber Venz Box (of RewardStyle & If you followed along on Snapchat or Insta Stories, you saw all 10 days of amazingness. I’m already pumped up for next year.

Screenshot Time

7 Mar

It is March Madness! So much going on this month as I’m getting geared up for SXSW (I’ll be sharing the SB recommended schedule of events soon). 

But before then, have you heard the news yet? The App is officially here, and you are not only going to like but LOVE it! 

With the new App, you’ll be able to take a screenshot of ANY Style Beacon photo across social media platforms (Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, Pinterest, etc.) and shop the items instantly. No more waiting around for direct emails. 

Download the app here to try it! Launch the app. Go to my most recent Facebook photo (here) or Instagram photo (here). Take a snapshot of this current outfit photo and voila, super easy to use and shop one item to entire outfits. 

I grabbed this black grid dress (only $17!) as a modern take on the LBD. The mock neck and long sleeves are perfect for cooler spring evenings. I love adding a white vest and black heels to complete the outfit. After all, B&W is always a good idea.

Happy Screenshotting!

Spring Challenge

23 Feb

Spring seems to have arrived early this year.

So, let’s start with an early SB Spring Challenge: try on something that is ‘not you‘. You just might be pleasantly surprised by how GOOD you look in something different from what you normally wear. It may even end up ‘becoming your style’. You’ll diversify your closet, boost your confidence, and expand upon your personal style.  

Experiment with some on-trend items: high waist jeans, cold shoulder blouses, statement tassel earrings, or OTK boots. Perhaps even try all four! You can personalize accordingly with the style, fit and color, depending on your comfort level.

Own a new look and enjoy the many sunny days to come.
 Spring is the perfect time for a refreshing reminder – Each sunrise is an opportunity for a beautiful new day. #beaconisms
