SPRING WARDROBE TRENDS :: DENIM

full-length-denim-skirt-trend-spring-15

Denim is as old as the USA. Well, maybe not quite, but it certainly feels like the defining fabric of American fashion. It hangs in every closet, is folded in drawers nationwide, and it comes in shapes and styles that fit every lifestyle. All that said, we’d all be down right bored if it wasn’t cleverly […]

5 WINTER STREET STYLE LOOKS TO TRY RIGHT NOW

short-sleeved-sweater-get-the-look-street-style-coco-kelley

I woke this morning in a total winter funk… typical for this time of year. Not that I can complain – the sun is shining today, and we haven’t had a drop of snow on the ground! But, I’m simply not a winter person. But – c’est la vie. We do have a few more months to get […]

      Thank you for such an awesome compliment! I’m not very good at motivating myself to get into a dress in the middle of winter, and I don’t expect most people are either – I like to keep things real and attainable! So I appreciate you noticing!!! xo

    I think I could really hop on the short sleeved sweater bandwagon! What I really need to work on is perfecting my layers. I have a bunch of coats, but they aren’t coats that I can wear on top of each other, so I need to work on that aspect of my wardrobe. For now, all I can afford to worry about is which items of clothing will keep me the warmest! I aspire to one day dress as well as these stylish women :P -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

      well my dear, you can add those but how are you supposed to know what to wear under if i just show a bunch of bundled up girls in each photo!? also, there are those whose ‘winter’ is a balmy 65. so a little of something for everyone, eh?

HIGH SHINE IN THE KITCHEN!

gold kitchen cabinets fiona lynch

I like shiny things. I love hanging out in my kitchen. So, I should probably really really love this mini metallic trend of super glamorous cabinets in materials like brass and mirror… But the practical side of me just sees little babes running around putting their fingerprints all over these beauties and me constantly right behind them […]

    Maybe best not to have a husband either if you want to keep these pristine. i don’t feel like these are kitchens that see actual use but they sure look nice in pictures.

    These kitchens are beauties – I agree with you though, they are apparently made for looking at not actually cooking in.

    (Same finger print idea goes for black kitchen cabinets too.) From experience, husbands don’t always use the hardware on cabinets either – which makes for finger prints in the most unlikely of spots.

IT’S ALL IN THE EYES

eyes-have-look-from-Milan-Fashion-Week

This trend seemed to start last year with Kenzo’s eye prints popping up everywhere during fashion week and on street style radars, but  a year later, I’m still a bit fascinated by the use of the ancient ‘evil eye’ as a statement making pattern… My favorite form of this by far has been the eye manis, […]

    These eyes are actually called Nazars and are supposed to protect from the evil eye. In folk traditions, especially around the Mediterranean, giving someone the evil eye (either purposefully or without intent, for example in the case of looking at someone enviously) can supposedly curse them. These little eyes ward the evil eye by “looking” back at the person responsible.

SLIDE ON IN :: THE SPRING SANDAL TREND

This weekend over drinks, my girlfriends and I had a very deep conversation that stemmed from the irony of us having fought so hard for years to rid Seattle of its Birkenstock hippie stigma, only have the sandals make their inevitable (?) return to fashion this year. (Insert eye-roll here.)  The discussion quickly turned to the similar […]

    Aaaah I can’t deal! I really never liked those shoes…they just remind me of my high school boyfriend after basketball practice (which is an entirely appropriate time to wear them). But with those gorgeous outfits? seriously? Nooo. Haha I do however like the leather ones you liked too, but that’s about as far as I can imagine going! So funny to see this trend :)

    I’ve been wearing soccer slides post-work for over 25 years. While incredibly comfortable, I won’t be sporting them anywhere except the gym.

    This is like THE MAIN SUBJECT in fashion world these days – should we wear them with sock or without them? Some fasionistas agree with socks & high heels too.
    I have to tweet this, I’m dying to know what others think :)
