{ Three Ways To Wear } Anorak Jacket

Fall came. It’s here and this one jacket has been serving me well as the weather + my style transitions.

Can we talk about the location of these pics for a sec? It may be my most favorite yet. The lovely Renee Patrone of Events by Renee was so gracious to let us shoot in her really cool space, Pineapple on Main (that you can rent for a gathering or workshop!). The space is the hub of some cool, creative entrepreneurs in the event, styling and decor biz. So of course there were some super-cute spots to shoot.

{ Local Love } Shop Smak Parlour’s Capsule Collection On Kickstarter Right Now!!

So there’s these two really stylish, super sweet, girl bosses that own a trendy and affordable boutique in Old City Philadelphia called Smak Parlour (love their store & them!!). They also happen to be best friends and designers. Their names are Abby & Katie. They’ve been in business for ten years, have really cool style that’s all their own, oh and they’re also a blast. I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with them on TV segments, shoots, events, and they even carry pieces from my vintage-jewelry collection Bling Babe.

Also, they are budget-friendly fashion babes and know it’s all about fun and expression, not spending a fortune. And so, they’re gone back to their designing roots and created a capsule collection through Kickstarter that’s so the Smak Parlour style. It’s a little glam, a little edgy, quirky, cool, retro, feminine, and incorporates their Philadelphia roots by collaborating with three Philly artists.

{ Steal Of The Week } Prom Shoes Aren’t Just For High Schoolers

On Friday I chatted prom fashion on Fox29 (and Vivica Fox was guest hosting!!). Saturday came and I hosted Lord & Taylor’s prom fashion show (so much fun!!). Now it’s Sunday and I’m window shopping prom styles, shoes specifically. Is there a prom coming up for me? No, but that’s no reason not to want to dress up. Now, I know a ball gown won’t fit in with most people’s lifestyle (nor is it my style), but a great pair of party pumps never fail to add glamour to even jeans and a tee. Let’s skip the dresses and head straight to the fabulous footwear. Here are some special shoes fit for prom, a swanky soirée, or just chilling … and they’re all on sale.

LifeSTYLE Tip: Wear special pieces on the regular to make everyday special.

{ Dare To Wear } Three Looks, One Sweatshirt

It’s not every day we remix our wardrobes. Wait, yeah it is. That’s pretty much what getting dressed is. This month one quilted sweatshirt from Target took on three different looks (and many more that just weren’t documented). Styled with a mini skirt or layered over a Canadian tuxedo,  the sweatshirt added warmth and a little athleisure to each look. Here’s the images to prove it. Full posts featuring styling tips and product links are linked below.

{ Well-Dressed Man } Custom Menswear Shop Indochino To Open Philadelphia Showroom

Hey Philly peeps, custom menswear just got easy. Indochino is coming back to Philadelphia. The worldwide leader in custom-men’s apparel did a pop-up shop back in the spring of 2014 that was a huge success so they’re setting up shop at 1606 Chestnut Street in Center City. Opening Wednesday, Jan. 14th, the new showroom will be an extension of the brand’s web-based store and will offer men a face-to-face shopping experience where they’ll be assisted with measurements and customization options — including a wide range of fabrics on display, more than 30 suit customizations, and over 20 shirt customizations, including lapel width, buttons, pockets, monogramming, lining and more.

Indochino-Philadelphia

“Our pop-up experience in Philly in May 2013 was an unprecedented success and the city has since grown into one of our biggest markets,” explained Kyle Vucko, Indochino’s co-founder and CEO. “We knew it would be one of the first cities we opened a showroom in and can’t wait to be on the ground once again helping the men of Philadelphia look sharp and feel awesome.”

Last time Indochino came to town I got to cohost their opening and I’m thrilled to be teaming up with them again. Since then my man has become a fan and wears his Indochino often. A custom shirt fits drastically better and the price is comparable and totally worth it. Once he goes custom he won’t want to go back. Keep it in mind for Valentine’s Day.
