Are you going to Boot Camp?

With the inspiring military trend being shown up and down numerous runways, are you thinking about how to fit it into your wardrobe?

You don't have to deck out in camo, or throw away your feminine side-it's easy to combine the best of both words, as much or as little as you want to emphasize it!

What to look for: big brass button accents, rich wool fabrics in hunter greens, navy blues, and rich creams, jackets, boots, and structured trousers and dresses. To see how to add delicate accents with military structure, look at the picture on the bottom.

Stay stylish! :)

Battle of the Black and White



Fall collections were out in full force at New York's fashion week at Bryant Park. Designers art and models' signature walks graced the runway of the venue for the last time, as next years fashion week will be moved to the Lincoln Center. Designers bid adieu to Bryant Park with their own spin on the ever-classic black and white trend for fall. Most designers did showcase bold hues like blues and greens as accents as well as designing entire collections in deep "fall" colors. Those who did display head-to-toe black and white looks proved that they can be worn in different ways. Tailor the trend to your own style by browsing through collections by Proenza Schouler and Marchesca. The former uses edgy fabrics and hard lines to create a gothic gone urban look, while the latter creates structure and form in frilly dresses.

Tell us which look you prefer and look into designers utilizing black and white in their own way!

Valentine's Day Fashion

Is it a faux-pas to wear reds or pinks on Valentine's Day? I don't think so! Today gives you an excuse to get festive and wear rich, decadent color. It doesn't have to be boring and it doesn't have to be cliche-with tons of hearts and sparkles. Simple and stylish with a touch of rose, is all that is really needed. Structured or flowy. Wild or Simple. However you want to do it, we are sure you can pull it off. And if you don't want it to be an overload of color, try using accents in your accessories. A cute clutch, hot red high heels, or simple breathtaking jewelry could be your way to celebrate your wardrobe on Valentine's Day.
Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
