Trend Talk: Grey

DSF8301 Recovered Recovered zpszjb8iq1l Trend Talk: Grey

There is a recent obsession both in the fashion community and of my own, with neutrals. Though black-and-white has always been a staple for many years, the new two colors that I have started seeing everywhere are grey and light pink. Today I want to talk about the grey trend. A head to toe monochrome look in grey, in my opinion, can look a little bit like PJs or lounge clothes due to the color. This is where the use of tailoring and fit is most important. Since this is a bit harder to perfect I did not opt for a full mono look.…

Closet Staples: Wrap Dress

GraceKathryn 20161202 TheVelvetDress 008 Low Res zpsrs61se5d Closet Staples: Wrap Dress

A simple classic wrap dress is a staple in any wardrobe, though typically you see the full longer sleeve and shorter above the knee cut. This is a bit of a different take on the wrap dress; as it is a short sleeve and a long maxi style dress with a slit up the front. One of my favorite ways to wear classic pieces is to find a version of it that has more of a modern design. Though this is definitely more of a fall and spring time item, you just need to layer a coat to make it perfect for winter.…

Closet Staples: Rompers

Hopefully this is my last warmer weather outfit for at least a few months as it is now finally just started to get a bit cooler. I can’t wait to break out all my velvet, faux fur, shiny leather and cashmere! However, today’s look is just a simple daily outfit of what I typically slip on for a busy day. I think a comfortable romper is the perfect item for this, especially for when you need to get out of the house fast. You put on just one item and then slip on some shoes and grab a bag; you can be out the door in literally less than five minutes.…

Styling: All Black Outfits

IMG 5004 zpszoj3za8d Styling: All Black Outfits

“Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony.” My favorite quote by Mademoiselle Coco Chanel. I like to think that ones personal style is instinctual, it cannot be learned or taught. I mean, sure you can learn the names of brands and proper etiquette. You can learn basic things like what garments fit best for your shape. But in my opinion, your personal style, cannot be taught or learned by anyone other than shaped by your own experience and what you are naturally drawn to.…

Styling: Fall Fabrics

IMG 5123 zps7siekxwd Styling: Fall Fabrics

This fall season is all about cozy textures. When I saw this beautiful 70s style suede button up skirt I knew it would be perfect for endless outfits this season. If you know me you know I’m a total sucker for velvet, so I fell completely in love when I saw they also had a velvet romper. Though rompers are usually more of a summer piece, the baggy fit and thick velvet material of this one makes for a perfect layering piece. Though the shop does feature a few items that aren’t black, it is their specialty shade, as they have one of the best collections of black clothing I’ve ever seen.…
