  • Time and the Rhyme

    I appreciate brands that are trying to solve solutions for many aspects of one’s life. Shinola is doing just that. Not only do they build goods in the USA, they are doing it in style. From small leather goods, to bikes, to turntables they are offering modern designs you can feel good about owning. Shinola watches are built in Detroit with Swiss and imported parts. Of all the products Shinola makes, the return of manufacturing jobs is the thing they are post proud of.

    We carry many of their watches and they are super classy, let me tell you.

    Check out this Maya Angelou Special Edition. A great tribute that comes with a leather journal filled with her poetry. Know the time and the rhyme...

  • Style File: Coast to Coast - Fashion Week

    lafashionweekgatsby_girlIt’s no secret that the fashion capital of the America is New York, but in March, LA had their own "Fashion Week" celebration. On Friday, hundreds of people gathered around the outdoor lounge at the W Hotel in Hollywood to celebrate the kickoff of LA fashion week with a runway show featuring two incredible designers. I had the honor of being able to volunteer at this event which gave me exclusive front row access to all the looks!

    The runway show was amazing, but seeing the style of the attendees was a sight in itself. Since being here I have already discovered that Hollywood fashion is nothing like the prim and proper style you see in New York. The people of Los Angeles are certainly more experimental and creative with their fashion choices.

    Guests used this event as an opportunity to express their own personal style on the red carpet. Some people fully encompassed all of the colors of spring, bright blues and yellows, pastel blazers, and hats galore! Others came dressed in gowns. Miss. Hollywood attended, dressed in her sash and crown. My favorite look of the night was a woman who was fully embracing a Gatsby inspired look complete with a long cigarette holder. Being a part of this event was certainly a unique experience, as well as a reminder that style is a completely personal. It was an inspiring thing to see people dare to be different!

    Melissa:

    Well I wasn't at fashion week (in LA or other wise), but I like to think I know fashion when I see it!  I try to stay on top of things, and have an addiction with shopping when all the new lines come out. I also have some amazing sisters with some serious fashion sense, so I'm in 'the know' -- even up here in Maine! But, I agree with Kelsey...my favorite looks are always those of the people not afraid to go for it!

     

    marta-krupa-joanna-krupa-attend-the-style-fashion-week-la-2014-4I know we can't all be on the runway or red carpet (even though some of us would love to be - this girl right here) but, we all can make our own fashion statements based on what we see on the runways. It's super easy to take a style from the runway and make it into your own, especially with Pinterest - don't believe me? I grabbed a Spring fashion show outfit and did about 10 minutes worth of searching on Pinterest and here you go...from "Runway" to "Your Way!" A cute pink pastel knit dress, pastel green clutch, yellow nails, and a beatiful Citizen watch -- there you have it: As we mentioned last week in Style File: Spring Trends - baby blue, peep toe booties, hats, and clutches are this Spring's "do's" with accesories and clothing. You can see in this photo from the red carpet, the Krupa sisters have it right, a beautiful pastel pink gown and "bam" - stylish clutch that would stand out for days! Not to mention the beautiful statement piece necklace Marta is wearing!

    Fun right? And personally, I like the "Your Way" a little more. Here's a few pieces from Day's that are "Runway" to "Your Way" ready! While we can't dress you from head to toe, we can make you sparkle!

  • Style File: Coast to Coast - Spring Trends Head to Toe

    This Winter has seemed particularly grueling on both coasts so having a fresh Spring style is a much needed ray of sunshine! This week we are going to review Spring Style: Head to Toe!

    Kelsey: 

     

    shopping_(1)One of my favorite trends this year that is easing the transition from our winter booties to our summer sandals are open toe, open heel, and strappy booties. How fun is that? For me, my favorite part of Fall is slipping back into my ankle or knee high boots, so I think it is great that this trend is working its way into Spring and early Summer style. Not only are these boots fun to wear during this seasonal transition, but they are also easy to pair with any look. Show off your new Spring pedicure with this open boot trend! There really is never a bad time to be in the city of Los Angeles, but I have to say, I was a little nervous about making the trek to the West Coast during winter. Luckily for me I caught LA on an extremely mild year, and so far the early Spring weather has been beautiful making it perfect for spotting the first glances of Spring style.

    Another one of my Spring style favorites straight from LA is topping off your look with a hat. Hats are an accessory that I often forget about, but there is something about a beautiful floppy sun hat that makes a woman look so chic. This is another great transitional item this season. Take off that knitted beanie and replace it with a nice sun hat for a weekend out, or a coffee date with a friend. It's an easy way to pull together a casual look or to dress up yesterday's hair! Throw on a statement piece of jewelry and your sun hat and you are good to go!

    Melissa: 

    04-asos-wide-leg-white-pants-h724I've been doing some research on this one, because as a fashionista, I wanted to make sure I was ready to go with some awesome Spring trends for you! These have been the trending items for Spring 2014:

    • Bomber Jackets
    • Wide Legged pants
    • Contrast Collar Jacket / Shirt
    • Pleated Skirts
    Now, if we take those and add them to Kelsey's findings in LA -- the style is hott! A cute pleated skirt with a fabulous sun hat, or wide legged pants with a pair of cute open toe booties. Can you see where we are going with Spring this year?

     

    download3Also, clutches are the new Spring accessory. No more huge, over sized purses...which means no more "everything but the kitchen sink" in your bag ladies. It's about being simple and cute!
    Spring's color is baby blue. I love baby blue! Especially when it comes to cute tops, sun dresses, and shoes. Or you can pair the two and find yourself a cute baby blue clutch!
    Now that you know what the trends are for clothing and accessories, let's refresh you on the jewelry trends for Spring. Top five trends for Spring 2014:
    1. Chains & Links - The wider the link the better. Chains are making a comeback like the 90's.
    2. Geometric Shapes - Big, colorful, geometric styles (necklaces, earrings, bracelets). Don't be scared to make a statement with your jewelry.
    3. Add Color - Color, color, color! Red, blue, green, yellow.
    4. Big & Bold - Just as it states. Jewelry is a way to show your style and attitude, dare to be different.
    5. Golden Glow - Gold is making its comeback with chains. Gold hoops, gold bangles, anything golden.
    There you have it. Here's a collection of our favorite Spring trends! Until next time. Questions or comments, please shoot us an email.

     

     

  • Style File: Coast to Coast - Best Actress Inspired Style

    actress_inspired_kelseyKelsey and I have a love of all things fashion and are so excited to share it with you all. This week we are talking about actress inspired style! So fun. It's amazing what you can do with pinterest, the Oscars, and your own "style" to come up with some amazing outfits!

    Kelsey:

     

    oscars_2014_red_carpet_arrivals_-_lupita_nyongoIt’s been a couple weeks since the Academy Awards took place here in Los Angeles, but you wouldn’t know it by looking at the tabloids and every fashion blog or magazine by the way they are still obsessing over some of the top looks at the 2014 Oscars.

    The real winner of the night was quite clearly Lupita Nyong’o who took home the Oscar for Best Actress. She was a vision of beauty in her ice blue Prada gown. I was so in love with the cut of this gown as well as the color, everything about this look was really so elegant and uplifting! Everyone needs a little big of pretty in their life, which is why I put together my own version of Lupita’s A+ look.

    Lets face it, not many of us will be invited onto the red carpet any time soon, but we can get in the mood for spring with our own Lupita inspired look. Maxi skirts are so easy to come by now. They are girly and most of all they are comfortable! Paired with a simple tank or t-shirt and you have a look that is fit for a star.

    Melissa: 

    actress_insprired_melissaI have to agree that she looked amazing! And now I've seen people with this dress (or similar too) on the red carpet, run ways, and now in bridal magazines as the look for Spring and Summer wedding gowns.

    However, I'm with you Kelsey, we can make this glam look into something fun and flirty with a maxi and tank. The best part is you can have this look for less than a Prada dress, and dress it up or down with the right accessories.

    Obviously, I am going to throw a scarf on with this look just because that's my signature piece, but you can also add a long necklace, layered necklaces, or leave a bear neck and add attention to your wrists and ears like Lupita did with some beautiful gold pieces.

    Inspired Jewelry:

    Kelsey and I pulled together two different looks using the same maxi skirt -- inspired by Lupita's ice blue Prada gown. We've also put together a collection of beautiful gold jewelry that will pop with any outfit!
