Layering for the cold winter months can be hard. As a matter of fact, layering is an art. You have to know what fits and how it looks on you. The key is to keep yourself warm without looking bulky. Here are my tips to layering for the fall. This is just what works for me. Maybe you have some tips? If so, post them below. Also check out the pictures below from The Sartorialist. They show how to be cute and warm during winter.
I am really enjoying the Spring 2012 collection from Yansi Fugel. It is so gorgeous! The collection is packed with bright colors, cool fabrics, bold patterns, and easy breezy silhouettes. Everything is just so youthful and fun for spring. The Spring 2012 collection also features laser cut fabric patterns, hand painted fabrics, reversible construction, and digital printing.
My favorite pieces are the dresses and the tunics. I am also a major fan of the cobalt blue pants. I just bought some jeans like in that color the other day. Two of the things I always love about this brand is the fact that it is very packable. You can take it anywhere and it just looks so good. I also love how the separates can be mixed and matched with other items. Yansi Fugel clothes are great closet fillers that you can pull out at anytime. Photos from Yansi Fugel.
Bright winter coats are a trend to try. Why? Well they are cute, they brighten up a drab winter wardrobe, they are fun, and they show personality. I have been rocking a bright blue swing coat from Old Navy for the past two years. It is warm, cute, fits my personality, and is a real conversation starter. I think all women should try this trend at least once, even if it is just in a store dressing room. Will you try this trend?
Hello everybody. While I am still working on my thesis, I want to bring you this interview with Romanian designer Yoana Baraschi. She is very talented, and I am now a big fan of her clothes. Baraschi is heavily influenced by her travels and love of vintage clothes. The pictures you see below are of her new Spring 2012 collection. I am really loving the bright colors, flirty lace and patterns, and feminine silhouettes. I hope you enjoy the interview below.
Penningtons Plus, a Canadian company that ships to the United States, has just released their holiday lookbook. In the lookbook, you will find cute jewelry and basics, nice separates and coats, and pretty lingerie and elegant eveningwear that is perfect for those upcoming holiday parties. My favorite item in the lookbook is the Iridescent Quilted Downfill Jacket. It looks very warm and cozy, which makes it perfect for me. Plus the shiny silver color looks great.
A representative from Yigal Azrouel came to Coplon’s last week. You might recall last week’s blog post where I advertised the event. The recent Resort and Spring 2012 collections were present. I love all of the looks from the collection. There were prints and lace, body conscious skirts and dresses, and lots of long evening dresses and colorful scarves. I couldn’t get enough of it. My favorite items were the scuba inspired skirts and dresses and the motorcycle jacket with the cutouts on the sleeves. Everything was super fabulous.

Auxilly has been seen in Seventeen.com, Zink, Vogue Italia, and I can see why.
Yesterday I went to the grand opening of the brand new Versona Accessories store at the Village of Sandhill shopping center in Columbia, South Carolina. I wasn’t too familiar with this store. All I knew about it was that a friend had visited one in Charlotte, NC and loved it. She practically raved about it, so when a PR rep for the company invited me to the store I had to sneak a peek.
While I was in New York for fashion week, I checked out two of the Odin stores because a friend of mine works there. I had heard about this store before, but I had never taken a peek inside. The menswear store was amazing beyond belief. I am so glad my friend works there because I love their menswear and there bath, beauty, and home products too. I already told my friend which candle I want for my birthday. This fall’s menswear is already in stores. See pictures from the lookbook below. Photos from Odin.
Yesterday, I headed down to 1022 Senate Street to see what the Urban Outfitters Store on Tour was about. Well it was great seeing how they turned the two truck trailers into a mini store. The clothes were nice as always. I almost bought some black and white film for my camera. Instead I bought a tribal inspired tank top. Check out the rest of my review and my Instagram photos below.
It’s looking like today will be an Urban Outfitters news kinda day.
