  • HISTORY 101: Breton Stripes April 18, 2014
    The Breton Shirt or La Mariniere, was first introduced as the uniform of the French Navy by the 27th March, 1858 Act of France. This top, made up of 21 navy and blue stripes, was worn as a safety measure so that a sailor could be easily spotted in the event he fell overboard. Before reaching the hands of Coco Chanel in 1917, this top became a working top of […]

  • TREND: Sporty Spice April 15, 2014
    While the yoga pant may be the "sport style" of the masses, we prefer a chicer kind of work-week workout. And from Balenciaga to Sacai, this Spring we find ourselves in quite the athletic spirit without actually having to go to the gym. [...]

  • TREND: The Espadrille Life April 8, 2014
    If you love espadrilles, you are going to be in shoe heaven this summer. Espadrilles are a casual flat (although they do come in a heeled version) and originated in Spain. They are known for having a flexible sole made of jute rope and rubber which provides comfortable wear. Although we are still in love with the slip-on sneaker, the slip-on espadrille has t […]
  • Dress Code VIOLATION: March Madness April 7, 2014
    March Madness is a lot to handle. And from year to year, it is a complete toss up as to who wins and loses. With surprise upsets and down to the wire wins, the tournament is nothing short of crazy. But in terms of how this relates to fashion, it is Craig Sager and his outrageous court presence that comes to mind. Fashion may be fleeting, but like the games t […]
  • TREND: Flatform'd April 3, 2014
    The sky is the limit this season as the flat platform, aka the Flatform, makes a very exciting comeback. Compared to the playful disco shoes of the 1970s and the zig-a-zig-ah of those crazy high Spice Girl sneakers, these stilts give a manageable amount of height with a chic factor to die for. And because they are basically like wearing a true flat shoe, you […]

Spring's florals range from a little bit retro (think floral print couch) to a bit more artistic in feel but none the less, these blooming prints have a com […]
