Style Guide, Your Style

Spring Denim is Here!

There is a change on the denim scene, and it has me smiling. Think faded, frayed, embroidered and pastel. Last season we began to see designers definitely branching out from the skinny distressed jean and the wide leg that had been trending for awhile. Whether you go big or take the trend to a scaled down level, trying one is key for the season.

I am all about the wild frayed bottom. It screams fun, and you can make them dressy with heels, sporty with a sneaker, or even preppy like I did here with my favorite Chanel bag and J.Crew boat shoes. This pair from Topshop is great because they are under $100, and when it comes to major trends, I like to buy things that are a steal!

You are also going to see all kinds of fun embroidered jeans, especially floral prints. Like they say, we are all ready for the May flowers after a long month of showers. Whether you do them simple down one side, or find a distressed pair with lots of fun floral print, go ahead and give it a try. I like to keep my top basic to focus on the embroidery.

Make it light and pretty. Pastels are a huge trend this season. I have already purchased several pairs in sneakers of course! If you don’t want to get too crazy on a new pair of jeans, my advice is to invest in a clean light colored pair. I love the idea of a baby pink or soft green denim. They will look perfect for day with a simple jean jacket, and at night a soft romantic blouse.

Faded denim is here to stay. The days of simple dark wash ankle jeans, are taking a backseat to more of a rocker feel. Whether you go for a boyfriend fit, ripped and distressed, or a crop wide leg one, have fun with this trend. Again, I suggest getting a fun pair that don’t break the bank, and make sure to add some cool shades and put some cool factor in your step.

I Style, Women

An intimate dinner at my favorite boutique Hiptique

This past Wednesday night, I was invited to an intimate dinner at my favorite boutique Hiptique. The store partnered up with One Nine Design to gather a group of entrepreneurial women in the industry for a night of mingling and talking business.

One Nine Design, founded by Stephanie Kimes, is an experiential design and production company. They curate experiences and bring ideas to life, and with this she has brought her own idea of the OND Social Series to life. It will be a monthly Los Angeles based event bringing women together to make contacts and gather cool ideas. Wednesday night did not disappoint, from the food to the DJ, and of course the shopping. All among 19 women who have created their own business.

On Tuesday, I offered the store my stylist experience, to dress the mannequins. I also did some fun personal shopping before the dinner with all of the women. Part of what I do for a living is personal shopping, and being able to offer advice to women in all sorts of business fields always makes me happy. Also using my creativity to do some fun window displays for fall was quite fun.
