Baby, It’s Cold Outside: Layer Up!

Layers For those of you on the East Coast, we assume you’re well aware of the recent temperature drop we’ve been experiencing. The weather has been crisp, cool, fresh and an all-around perfect fall season as of yet. If you haven’t already done so, it’s officially time to break out your layering pieces.

Oh, layering. Where do we even begin? We think of layering as a type of art. If done properly, you can look so effortless and chic like you quickly threw together this masterpiece of an outfit. Someone will always pay you that compliment of, “Oh my god you look so cute today!” and the response is generally, “Really?!! I just threw it on and ran out the door.”

Bottom line: once you know how to properly layer your garments the outcome will always be compliment-worthy. We put together four different layered-up outfits for daily situations all girls encounter.

Watch the video to see how we layer up! (more…)

How to Wear the Trend: Camo

In the past, most of us reserved camouflage for real, mean, hide-in-the-forest type bustle. And for the brave who rocked it, they infiltrated the military thrift stores and made their own anti-society fashion mark on the world, sometimes alone. We looked at them and thought, man they must be a tough cookie, because if they walk into a dark forest they might just disappear…and then what?

Those days are over. No one will think you’re GI-Woman come to life. But you can be — dare I say it — trendy. Top designers like Phillip Lim, DKNY, Equipment and even Manolo Blahnik have taken this otherwise brute feeling pattern and made it high-fashion and all over the streets of style. The colors are always neutral in nature, ranging from green to khaki, with subtle hints of grey. For the bolder, you’ll see movement into the reds and blues, the special forces of high fashion camo.

So now that you can buy it from SINGER22, how do you wear this pattern? It’s neutral in color and yet so bold in nature, which makes it hard for a lot of us to wrap our heads around how to make it good. Follow some key guidelines: (more…)

Summer Fashions that Transition into Fall

We all want to get the most out of our wardrobe—especially if we paid for quality items. But as the summer sun fades to autumn’s greyer skies and orange leaves, you might find yourself forced to contemplate a shift in your wardrobe.

There are, of course, some things you’ll have to drop your hard-earned cash for like a leather jacket, perhaps. However, here are a few items you can get value out of even as the weather changes.  (more…)

Yo Ho Ho and a Box Full of Gold

In another life I was a pirate. I love gold, treasures, and trinkets and scope out lucky pennies on a daily basis to add to my collection of “booty.” I like to rebel against society and if I knew how to go about obtaining and operating a yacht piled high with gold and living on the high seas, I would. My jewelry is stowed away in protective chests, each piece carrying a memory or some type of sentimental importance. I’ve told you before about my lucky bullet, which is the most sentimentally important treasure I own and the reason I wear it every day (regardless if it matches my outfit or not).

I notice many people wearing their sentimental pieces on a regular basis. It’s usually the small trinkets that don’t necessarily match and are dainty. These understated pieces we carry are usually tied to some significant event or person or because we wear them so much we feel they are witnesses to major parts of our lives. (more…)

It’s a Jungle Out There

You can never go wrong with animals prints. Season after season animal is in. And what better way to appreciate nature and not upset PETA than to incorporate the prints and patterns of the wild into our wardrobes? Cheetah prints make us feel feminine and fierce like the feline of the jungle…or Savannah or wherever it is that cheetah’s hangout. While snake and python prints make us feel sleek and seductive like the slithery, stealthy reptiles. Zebra prints are bold, exotic and eye catching. We wear these prints not only for the appreciation of color or shape but for what the animals themselves exemplifies and we secretly wish we were like ourselves.

New York CityIf I were an animal I’d want to be a panther or any exotic big cat. I say panther because even in animal form I like to be dressed in black from head to toe. Panthers are strong, graceful and mysterious. They’re basically the animal version of what the ideal Bond girl is. And a Bond girl is the epitome of sexy, powerful, and feminine. FYI the panther is not an actual separate species of cat. A panther just refers to a large cat species that has excessive black pigment so you cant actually see their spots without close observation. There’s your daily dose of Zoboomafoo fun facts for those of you who still remember that show.

In the spirit of the of the persistent – and one of my favorite – trends I went to SoHo to see what animals the street stylers would be themselves. (more…)

Designer Spotlight: Jennifer Zeuner’s Jewelry Empire

Jennifer Zeuner

Celebrities1. What is the inspiration behind Jennifer Zeuner jewelry?

Jennifer Zeuner’s inspiration is the “artsy, modern and confident girl” that doesn’t need to wear a statement necklace every day.  Her new collection fuses modern and wearable seamlessly.  It incorporates a lot of angular shapes in surprising ways.  This was achieved while still maintaining the collection’s trademark simplicity.  The pieces can speak for themselves or be layered.  The same piece can reflect a different mood when layered and/or worn differently. The jewelry allows women to be creative with it. The collection is not about a single statement piece. It’s about the conscious, personalized combination of different pieces.  Ultimately, it tells a story.

2. Is Jennifer Zeuner the main designer of the line?

Yes, every piece is 100 percent designed by Jennifer. She carefully draws out the pendants and then selects everything such as  the chain, chain length, finish and  stone.  Designing is the one aspect of the business that Jennifer fully controls and doesn’t have anyone assist her with. At first, Jennifer did everything from the designing and selling to the shipping. Now her focus is mostly on designing. 

3. What do you see for the future of Jennifer Zeuner?

In the future we hope to preserve the exclusivity of our rapidly growing brand. We want to be selective about our retailers and offer a high end product to the most exclusive stores worldwide. Also, we look forward to expanding our men’s collection. A lot of men wear our pieces designed for women and they simply add an extension to the chain! Another possibility in the future is a collaboration with a style “icon.” It’s in the works already so we are keeping our fingers crossed! 

4. What is one thing that we don’t know about your brand?

Our brand’s aesthetic has evolved tremendously over time. Our first pieces, which were bought by Cameron Diaz, consisted mostly of very long beaded necklaces with wood and bone pendants. The look was very bohemian and resonated with our customers. However, after noticing an over-saturation of bohemian and beaded jewelry in the market, Jennifer chose to change the aesthetic completely.  Jennifer found inspiration in vintage Lanvin jewelry, and mid century modern furniture. The line’s symbolic and meaningful pieces were now uber-modern and simple. The  line became much more classic and sophisticated. The metamorphosis was a huge success! Fast-forward eight years, the line is sold at high end retailers worldwide and loved by stylish celebrities such as Beyonce, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jennifer Lopez, Halle Berry, Selena Gomez, Jessica Alba, Miranda Kerr, Zoe Saldana and Alessandra Ambrosio amongst many others!
