Being “Almost Famous”

I had a fashion flashback today when the team over at “Equipment” pointed out that the python blouse we have on the site is very “Almost Famous.” It inspired me to do an entire post on one of the best movies of all time, and one of the best fashion era’s too.  The 1970′s were all about free spirit, ease and effortlessness. Flowy tops, wide leg jeans and maxi dresses were a must have staple for every hipsters closet.  The key to pulling off 70′s style is to own the look & don’t let the clothes wear you.  Mix and match fringe with fur, floral with pops of color and don’t forget to always have a pair of cut off jean shorts handy. “Almost Famous” style is beyond perfect for any music festivals that you have to go to, or lazy days at the beach.

Get Your Globe On

I can't get enough of all the exotic prints and pops of neon colors I'm seeing this spring.  Even better, I love when I see girls pair the two together.  This season, don't be afraid to pair a bright orange or hot pink top with a tribal printed skirt (or vice versa). You can even pair two completely opposing prints together. My rule of thumb is for the prints to be opposing colors and prints.  Kinda like what SomethingNavy did with this Jonathan Simkhai top:

The bottom like with going with the global trend is to not just look efforless be feel it too.

Singer22 Addict

The amount of pieces photographed for Pencey and Thayer today is unheard of. It’s so amazing because I get the opportunity of trying everything on and sort of seeing how it fits. Even though I am madly in love with all the new items – I can’t stop thinking about the brand new StyleStalker dress I bought today. I have been dreaming about it since the day we shot the look book and finally, I am leaving here today with it tucked away into my Singer22 shopping bag. I’d say I’ve racked up about 10 of those now. MUST LEARN SELF CONTROL! Anyway the new Thayer blouses sort of remind me of the Equipments, but the prints are very different then the ordinary leopard and polka dot you normally see. They looked super cute with literally anything I paired them with. I also loved the Pencey dresses. My favorite was the white satin long one with the dream catcher on the back. I also tried on a ton of brand new skinny jeggings – as soon as I thought they couldn’t possibly make any other version of a jegging I was proven wrong. I also bought the Robin colored sleeveless Equipment shirt today. I literally almost fought a woman in the store for the Small. She won, so I left with a medium – turns out, the medium suits me better. My number one thing I must discuss today are all the new shoes. I can’t even begin. Senso is my long lost love. The leopard booties, the black booties, the copy of the Acne Admire booties, and the beige flats with the fringe. When I opened the silver shoe boxes, I felt things I’ve never felt before. It made the day of shooting that much better. I have a problem don’t I? I bet you’ll all feel the same when you see them. We’ve been brainstorming new ideas for the website and we’ve come up with the idea for StreetStyle in the lookbook section. I can’t wait to showcase all my looks out and about in the city. I will also do my own little take on the singer22 lookbooks. For example, this weekend I will do my own unique version of Lighten Up for Spring.

Can’t wait to share!

Trend Report: Seein’ Red

Red is climbing the charts when it comes to being seen and making your wardrobe pop. It can be as simple as an accessory, like a pretty bracelet (alone or intermixed with your other jewels), or a jacket like Nicole Richie so fabulously displays. You can also make it your statement piece, like a top of dress to add some va-va-voom! Make red your go-to color choice this season!

Haute Hippie must haves!

We have been nonstop shooting Haute Hippie lately. The pieces are out of this world – no joke. They are flowy, silky, pinks, florals, floor length skirts and dresses. I can’t get enough of them. The navy floor length skirt with the mermaid sort of bottom with the worn in grey t-shirt is hands down the perfect outfit. The beige jumper was also a personal favorite because of the color, the long sleeve, and the deep V. It’s such a sexy piece for summer. Oh, and also, the white suit with the boy shorts, I have never seen something chicer. It would look amazing with any color equipment shirt underneath

I have been lusting for all the new shoes – especially the Cajon beige and red tie up platforms. I need them in my life. I recently purchased the black orchid skinny jeans and the Chaser Anchor NYC muscle tee. I wore it out this weekend on the 60 degree saturday. It was a hit.

Bright Equipment!

It was really fun shooting last week because we're finally bringing out all the bright colors and summer pieces. All new shoes, sandals, jewelry, and neons! The new equipment shirts we shot today were amazing coral pink and a cerulean blue. I'm really into pairing neon colors with each other – mixing and matching, so I used a lot of the BluMoon shorts which come in crazy colors. Last week on Friday, I left Singer22 with the amazing Charley 5.0 denim shirt. I wore it out that night and got stopped by everyone! It's super soft and has the cut out shoulders which is a very new trend to my closet. I have also been shooting almost everything with the white Jeffrey Campbell skate shoes – have you seen them? They are crazy cool.

Check in Friday for more updates! x

Look of the Week by Something Navy

Photography: Jane Kim
(Shorts: Winter Kate, Shirt: Equipment, Hat: Topshop, Boots: Hogan, Ring: House of Harlow)
I love this outfit because this is something I’d truly wear on any ordinary day. With the velvet feel of the Winter kate mini shorts, and the silk Equipment top, it’s a major go to for comfy chic. All the equipment tops at Singer are my favorite, made out of the best fabric, all different designs, and any color you could imagine. This is also my go to hat from Topshop. I feel like this hat could pull any outfit together. Fashion aside, did anyone else cry hysterically from American Idol last night?!?
