Rachel’s Radar: Trends for Spring!

Spring TrendsSpring 2013 is being referred to as a “balancing act” according to Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. She says, “…we look for balance between light and bright, classic and new. This season’s color palette emphasizes this need for balance, while at the same time allowing for individuality, self-expression and excitement.”

Take a look at the four trends I’m most excited about for spring! (more…)

Style Cravings of Unique New Yorkers

Afaf

I woke up this morning with the sun streaming in my window reviving my inner 70s bombshell wannabe (hello Brigitte Bardot) and a little of Carmen Sandiego’s catch-me-if-you-can mystery while trying to hide under the covers for some extra sleep. What better way to satisfy my style icon craving than with a floppy hat? The hat, might I add, is the ULTIMATE understated, attention grabbing accessory. Everyone always notices the girl in the hat before anyone else in the room. A Lovely Bird floppy hat is an excellent choice for a look similar to mine or a Civil Clothing snapback for those urban glamazon days.

Celebs Can’t Get Enough of Hudson Jeans!

Hudson JeansA style of denim that can grab the attention of Alessandra Ambrosio, Olivia Palermo, Selena Gomez and more, is something every girl should consider looking into! Hudson Jeans have been pictured all over the streets lately, especially in two particular styles: LouLou Tux and LeeLoo. Tuxedo-inspired jeans are fairly new to the denim scene but it seems to be making its mark with the likes of stylish celebrities.

Pictured above on Olivia, Alessandra and Jessica is the LeeLoo super skinny cropped jean. They have a slimming silhouette with color-block detail on the waistband and side panel. Since they are cropped at the ankle, you’ll be able to show off those gorgeous new shoes (and not feel guilty about spending your entire paycheck on them!) (more…)

Meet Our Newest Contributor: Afaf! Learn More About Her Through Her Closet

Afaf

I’m Afaf, a 21 year old fashion designer living in New York City pursuing my goals and chasing my biggest dreams. The usual response I receive after an introduction is “what’s a ‘faf’?” Allow to me to explain this and how I ended up in such a glorious arrangement.

Imagine growing up in the deep-fried-donut-burger South, and briefly in Egypt, with a diva, goddess-of-gaudy mother; two older brothers who I swear must have secretly and unintentionally inspired the “geek chic” movement; and a father absorbed in the textile industry. (more…)

I’m Obsessed With: Frame Denim

Frame Denim Miranda Kerr has been spotted out and about wearing Frame Denim multiple times. Who could blame her? The wash is classic and the fit is skinny, what more could you want? Frame is a new brand to hit the denim scene, founded in 2012, but I don’t think it will be going anywhere any time soon. Their fits are flattering and comfortable!

As seen above, Miranda mixes and matches all types of tops, jackets and accessories with these skinny jeans. If you like her edgy and laid back look, opt for a leather moto jacket and dress it up with simple heels. Or keep it sophisticated with a sleek blazer or jacket and flats. The possibilities are endless with these Frame skinny jeans, so go ahead and start planning your outfits!
