Auspicious Autumn

With the promise of an amazing fall in the air, we have officially begun digging out our winter’s finest. We’ve always loved a well balanced mixture of men and women’s wear with subtle pops to add character. Pairing bold prints with a bit of an oversized men’s sweater creates a not-too-casual look that’s good for any occasion. We complemented the blue in the pants with a soft pink and added a nice feminine flat to finish off the look. (click to enlarge photos)

Get the look: Sweater-J. Crew Men’s; Pants-Forever 21 (Similar Here); Flats-Dolce Vita; Necklace-Forever 21; Tank-Forever 21

Don’t be afraid to browse the men’s section next time your in a store. You never know what you’ll find!

Timeless

There are those items that will never look outdated. Items that have withstood time.  Beginning with the ubiquitous little black dress, among these are fur, leather, trench coats, white button-ups and black pumps.  While all of these necessities can come with a high price, it’s remarkably easy to avoid this problem.  Here’s a simple solution: if it never goes out of style, what’s the harm in snatching a deal from last season? Lets be honest, who’s going to notice your wearing a pair of last year’s black pumps that you found on the 75% off rack?

Fall’s Final Run

Although February is renowned for love, cupid, and all things pink, red, and sparkly, it also brings Fashion Week and the rapid acceleration into spring apparel. Bathing suits enter stores as sweaters go on clearance. This fall and winter, it was nearly impossible to escape the color red, but as the fall and winter red slowly fades to this year’s spring colors, it’s time to take those reds out for their final run.

Here’s To New Beginnings

The moment we part ways with the “imaginary” world of college and become newbies of the real world is imminent. In a recent nostalgic spill, we asked ourselves, where have the last 5 years gone?!!! and none of us could come up with a solid answer. Yes, everyone says it but really, its BIZZARE how time flys. With this revelation (which we’re clearly behind on), we decided, what better way to chronicle our impending explorations and thoughts than with a blog?! We want to retrospect some day and commemorate the good times or laugh at our fashion faux pas. Either way, as life pulls us in unexpected directions in the years to come, this will be the perfect place to seal our memories. Being three girls (soon to be) roaming three cities, there’s sure to be an abundance to share! stay tuned friends!!
