Style Spotlight: Carried Away

1st June 2012

It’s time for another style spotlight!

I’ve been watching sex and the city from the begining latley so I am becoming slightly more obsessed, with carrie and her ever changing style. In this look, she is channeling a trend from last year that is still hot for spring/summer 2012: pattern mixing! Lets take a look at how its done.

Rookies… listen up!
If you are new to pattern mixing, the easiest way to get the look without looking over the top is to stick to black and white and maybe one other color (like red or pink shown above). You can even mix different mediums of the same print, like spots on spots in spots (top row, center). Also pick easy to pair prints, like stripes and polkadots – a perfect match. 
Challenge yourself!
mastered the spots and stripes combo? great! now let’s explore more advanced pattern mixing. Before you even get started, pick a theme. Do you want your look to be casual & fun? or are you craving to channel pastels? your theme can be a color pallet (pastels), a style (nautical) or anything else, just make sure you have one! Then look for complimentary colors: you may stick to the primaries (casual&fun: red, yellow and blue) or pick one starting piece (the skirt in printed pastels) and pull colors from within that piece (baby blue and pastel pink). Whatever you choose, keep it simple… use simple silhouette and accessories (such as a big solid belt) to tone the look down and separate your printed pieces!
Now, lets get carried away…
In our style spotlight: Carrie is wearing stripes on stripes in both horizontal and vertical patterns! You can easily recreate this with pieces you probably already have in your closet, or can pick up at an H&M or Forever21 for cheap. Just pick a color scheme, grab two striped or color blocked pieces, dress it up with a statement necklace, belt it and tone it down with solid shoes. The “Bold” look most closely resembles Carrie’s, only she would probably be wearing red manolo’s instead.
Happy Pattern Mixing!
I would love to see what fabulous outfits you come up with!

Style Spotlight: Jillian Dress

26th May 2012

One again, our favorite new girl Zooey Deschanel is stepping into the spotlight.

Zooey is wearing a kate spade classic with a twist: the bow striped jillian dress (now on sale)!
The Jillian is one of my favorites (I have it in two colors, I may have a problem…) four three reasons: 1) the adorable bow keeps it girlie yet fun, 2) it has the perfect pockets! I am such a sucker for a dress with pockets, especially secret ones like these that don’t gape, 3) the silhouette is perfect for any occasion, you can dress it up or dress it down!  
I often wear my jillians with my denim jacket and tennies or over a button up shirt with a statement necklace. Any way you wear it, this dress is a completely versatile transformational treasure!
If the stripes aren’t your thing, consider investing in a basic jillian like a black silk one. I choose to opt for the fun linen zebra jillian and the bold tomato red/orange one. Whichever one you choose, can became as versatile as the striped one with multiple ways to wear it!
Are you a Kate Spade-esuqe bride to be? Or looking to be a lady in white? If so check out the wedding bells collection white Jillian.

Style Spotlight: Soren Dress

25th May 2012
