Future of Fashion

9 Mar

With longer days just around the corner, we all find ourselves injecting more color into our lives. This year’s Pantone pastels are perfect for spring (and were the overall inspiration for this outfit that I snagged at Kiki Nass).

Perhaps the best part of this look is the bracelet. WiseWear has masterfully created fashionable and functional jewelry that allows you to stay chic, connected, safe, and fit! 

This smart jewelry does it all: tracks your daily activity, notifies for incoming calls, texts, emails, & calendar reminders, and has a safety setting. In the event of an urgent situation, just tap to send a distress signal along with your geolocation and sound/video recording of your surroundings. Just imagine if every woman had one of these… 

We had such a fun time on this shoot. Be sure to check out the other fab ladies pictured below: Dani Austin, Fixin to Thrill, & Beaded by W.  

Perhaps this really is the future of fashion!

Get your Mock On

24 Feb

The turtleneck is baaaaack. And we aren’t talking about the old school, awkward, double chin style.

The mock turtleneck might be your new best friend. They are universally flattering, on-trend, and classy. Unlike full-length turtlenecks, mocks only rise to the midline of your neck. So you get the simplicity of a turtleneck, without the fuss.

This mock swing dress is a great closet staple. It can be styled a million different ways. If the weather is cooler, pair it with a scarf and OTK boots. As temps warm, wear it with peep toe boots and a pendant. Just grab a tote and get out the door.

Now, go get your mock on (cue Missy Elliot music).

Three’s Company

25 Nov

Do you ever struggle to pull together the perfect look? Do you oftentimes feel like your outfit is missing something? The solution is actually super simple: think three!

The “third piece rule” or “rule of threes” is a philosophy that you should adopt ASAP. Essentially, think about your outfit as a set of three. If you are wearing a dress (one item), you should add two more items to your outfit. If you are wearing jeans and a blouse (two items), you should add one more item to your outfit. You can add a hat, blazer, vest, kimono, scarf, tights, headband, statement necklace, etc. Just note that this philosophy excludes shoes, they are a given.

Never underestimate how much a hat can elevate your outfit. It is probably the easiest third piece addition to any outfit. How fun is a burgundy hat, with this dress and tights? [This Free People dress is on sale for under $50, until Saturday!]

Start working the “rule of threes” into your ensembles. It is a surprisingly simple way to add interest and dimension to your your look. You never know, you may be onto your chicest wardrobe ever.
