Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow…

Winter is here and while it’s looking like we will be having a white Christmas,  the beauty of winter comes with cold fingers, frozen toes, and red noses. There is nothing worse then walking out to your car and stepping in a mound of snow or slush resulting in a wet, freezing foot all day. The best thing for your feet and your sanity is to invest in quality snow boots that you can wear outside to protect your piggy’s. Yes, your “street style” may suffer a bit, but you can always bring your fashionable kicks with you and change your footwear when you get on solid, dry ground. There is just no use in struggling through the winter with cold feet and a sad face all day. Here are a few options to invest in this winter:
The North Face “Snotropolis”

American Eagle “Cozy Boot”

UGG “Teneya”

“Cruella Deville, Cruella Deville….”

Cheetahs and Tigers and Bears O MY! Faux fur is here and hot this season adding texture, warmth, and Ooo La La to looks around the globe.

How can you get your paws on this wild trend? Well you don’t have to start scoping out the neighborhood pups for your favorite print Cruella! No no, your local mall or cozy couch and lap top will do the trick. Styles in brown, grey, black, white, blue, cheetah, tiger, zebra.. the list goes on and on. Whatever you choose, wear it with confidence! While it may seem like a step on the wild side, sporting a bit of fur will make you feel elegant, classy and perhaps a bit seductive. 😉

Look for a great fur jacket or vest. These pieces will add glamor to any look. Pair it with some skinny jeans or black leather leggings to keep proportional contrast. You could also wear it with a fitted dress or skirt. I wore my H&M fur vest with my Phillip Lim skirt from target and leopard booties:

If your looking for something more subtle, try a piece that has fur trim or is worn as an accessory. A cardigan trimmed with fur, gloves with a fur cuff, a fur hat or scarf. These are all fashion forward but not as overwhelming as a a leopard fur jacket or full length fur coat… Baby steps 😉

Go for something you are comfortable with but try stepping out of the box and adding at lest ONE thing furry to your wardrobe. Trust me, only good things can come of it 🙂

Here are some great stores you can seek out your furry finds:

Happy Memorial Day!

Ahhh memorial day; a day to kick off the summer bbq’s, backyard games, and fun in the sun. A luxury we have thanks to so many men and women who are fighting or have fought for the freedom of our country. They deserve honor and appreciation for all that they do. Not only do the men and women of our military encourage us to believe in the USA and unite together, their attire has inspired the runways of the 2013 fall and winter fashion shows.

The catwalk was filled with soldierly inspired coats, boots, and prints. Military chic is in, bringing strength and power to your wardrobe. Combat boots, camouflage prints and cargo jackets are trending for fall  and will be must have pieces in your closet.

Its never to early to start planning for the season to come. Look out for colors like army green, black, navy, mustard  and camouflage. All done in more feminine silhouettes, the details of large buttons, breast pockets and epaulettes, bring the force and power of a military look.

Cargo jackets, skinny pants and skirts in khaki, army green, camo. and black leather all have a place in  your closet. They are a chic and casual way to beef up your style. The tough “battleground” heritage of this look may be intimidating at first, but these trends will help you to embrace your inner strength, and bring authority to your look. SHOPSTYLE by POPSUGAR organized a great collection of pieces you can shop to get you started. Check it out here.

On Memorial Day we reflect on our military soldiers and what they have done to preserve our safety. We are privileged and free as a country, and in the midst of our hectic lives,we forget to be thankful and honor those that fight to keep it that way. This fall and winter we have an opportunity to keep our soldiers in mind everyday as we look into our closets and sport our military looks. Lets make it more than an outfit! Take the time to thank God and pray for our military, their families and our country. Thank you to all who have served and fought for us. Your willingness to lay your lives on the line is heroic and honorable….not to mention your ever so chic attire 🙂

We are excited to embrace this trend and see what looks you can come up with. Let us know what you think, and how you plan on becoming military chic this fall. Comment below or post your input to our Facebook page!

Have a Magical Day!
