July 30, 2015 by Samantha Weaver Shop Her Look: Melanie of LACB

Whenever I need styling tips on how to re-imagine classic pieces with stripes, gingham or plaid, I turn to Crossroads Style Council member Melanie Sutrathada. In fact, she’s such a pro at pairing black with white that she’s this week’s inspiration for Shop Her Look“.

Get Melanie’s classic black and white look with our Grid Print Maxi Dress, $32.50.

Or try another trend at the top of our list for fall trends: gingham. You can look forward to seeing this print in dresses, skirts and even outerwear! Mod Swing Dress in Gingham, $32.50.

For a black and white overcoat like Melanie’s above, go for our Sleeveless Trench in Check, $32.50. Sleeveless trench coats will be huge this season,  and we love them because they offer a fitted silhouette with tons of layering options.

Finally, I think Melanie would agree that we should all dress for summer as long as possible (before the return of the dreaded East Coast winter), and there’s no better way than to keep wearing sandals! Our Racer Stripe Slip-Ons, $32.50,  are made of butter soft leather and feature a modern cut.

If you haven’t already added Melanie’s Lace and Combat Boots to your weekly list of must-read fashion blogs, make sure you start tuning in stat, because this New Yorker has a knack for inspiring her readers in life, style and fashion.

July 24, 2015 by Samantha Weaver In a 70’s Denim Daze

Denim is back and we’re glad. Alexa Chung’s 2015 collaboration with AG jeans helped 70’s-inspired denim pieces find their way back into our closets in a big way. Inspired by the debut of Alexa’s newest AG collection, I pulled out our latest denim dress for a styling session.

denimAlthough we love Alexa’s denim dress for AG, it’s summer and it’s a scorcher! We’ve exchanged her long-sleeved and buttoned-up version for our Frayed Denim Jumper, $35Pick it up at a Crossroads location near you this weekend!

denim What’s so great about this denim piece is the layering options. Here I added a striped tee, pinstripe slides, a red crossbody bag and my favorite denim jacket.

July 16, 2015 by Samantha Weaver Inspired by Blair Eadie: Stylish Tote Bags

Whether you carry a hobo, bucket or crossbody, there’s one thing trending in purses this year: they’re getting bigger! The largest of them, and by far our favorite this season, is the structured tote. And, when it comes to a classic tote we say bigger is better because everything from our gym clothes to our lunch has to fit in there!

For styling inspiration we’re turning to Atlantic-Pacific, the popular fashion blog of Blair Eadie, to search her style portfolio for looks that feature classic totes…enjoy!

Get Blair’s look with our Classic Vegan Tote in tan, $28.50 (Coming soon to stores).

Be bold by swapping out your classic tan version for one with a pop of color.

k1Black, white or anywhere in-between, a tote bag can dress an outfit up or down. You simply can’t go wrong with a great tote bag.Assorted leather totes, $25, available in select Crossroads locations.

July 10, 2015 by Samantha Weaver Meet Samantha of StyleInfurno

Put your hands together for our newest member of the Crossroads Style Council! Samantha of StyleInfurno (you can call her Sam) is a blogger based out of Sacramento, but she’s way more than that. This fashion lover and thrifting maven is also a designer, known for re-fabricating vintage finds into one-of-a-kind custom pieces.  On top of it all, I’m head-over-heels in love with her effortless California vibe.

Sam says her “summer go-to outfit almost always contains a pair of barely there, thrift store chic, denim cutoffs,” so I thought we’d take a moment to get inspired by some of her most classic denim looks. Welcome, Sam!
