let it rain!
sleek finishing serum, a flat iron, and hairspray does wonders in the rain
Going for a night out and still want to look fashionable? Try these thick heeled rain boots, rain coat that adds a pop of color, and a feminine umbrella.
Want that sexy edgy east village look? Black is back! spice it up with a patterned umbrella.
Still want to go for shopping & lunch with the girls when it's down pouring? Now you can! Ankle cut rain booties, fun umbrella, and trendy raincoat- BOOM fashion central.
Who says you can’t look fabulous in the rain? As fashionistas, we make a vow to look great RAIN or SHINE. Sometimes I secretly look forward to the rain because that means its time to bust out the trendy rain gear! What did you say? You don’t have any fab gear in your closet? Girl step your game up! Lucky for you we have some amazing pointers to help bump up your style into the fabulous category. First things-first: you MUST add in a rain coat- depending on your style. If your going for a classic look we highly recommend DKNY (they have a great fit that’s true to size & affordable) or if your going for a funky piece with some color try Michael Kors. Next up- rain boots: we are loving the trendy Vivienne Westwood jellies, and of course the classic Hunter wellies. The last accessory to complete your new rain gear-a fun and flashy umbrella: try larger all-in-one stores such as Target, and department stores like Macy’s. With all your new gear you’ll be singing in the rain. xo

everything you need for fall and more
Colored leaves, cool breeze, and pumpkin spice lattes (yumm) can only mean one thing…October has arrived and fall is in full swing. Finally we can express our fashion creativity with lots of layers and great seasonal accessories. Bring on the fur, tights, sweaters, and scarves! My favorite fall theme pieces this year can be summed up with long sleeve dresses, anything that’s knit, ponchos, and fur vests. Keep it clean with muted tones of tan, camel, light rose, and add some deep purple for a pop of color. Some great affordable finds displayed on our trend board include: an orche jacquard tunic sweater dress from Miss Selfridge, cream floral print snood scarf from Topshop, and a canny curry blazer by MBYM. Did somebody say fall shopping spree?

This outfit was inspired by pebbles. They’re clean, white, and is strong and solid. The top Kayture is wearing is a white structured top. Her shorts are black which create a crisp contrast between the top and the bottom. I like the scalloped details because it gives the look a soft, yet clean edge. The Regal Sienna Ray bag is perfect for this outfit because we all know Sienna Ray is all about being luxurious from the outside in!

dark color palette = sophistication
Chambray has been big this year. It has influenced many designers to use more denim in their design. Accessorizing denim could be tricky because the garment is usually already very bold in style. Try pairing your denim piece with dark colored accessories for an edgy, grungy, and sophisticated look.

beautiful shades of a sunset
Regardless of which season it is, a sunset is always going to be beautiful. A sunset is romantic and warm. A neutral colored handbag adds warmth and class to any romantic look.

Rock your pinks, oranges, and neons before the temperature drops, flowers wilt, and fall arrives. Pair a vibrant colored top with white bottoms. After all, white brings out the tan in every skin color!
less is always more

Do you wear boots in the summer and sandals in the winter? I’m only joking. Summer pieces look really chic paired with early fall items. Try a straw hat with a dark colored maxi dress, trench-like jacket, and chunky heels. A black handbag is versatile and can work any season, day or night.

Though spring is my favorite season of the year, I prefer dressing in sumer/fall clothing. There’s something aesthetically pleasing about light jackets, maxi skirts, white jeans, and booties. For the fall, I’m loving the capsule bags in varsity colors (maybe because I am a rising senior in college and I am having college withdrawal symptoms already?)
