We’re so excited about our selling guide that we’ve created looks to showcase our favorite spring trends using this week’s new arrivals.

’70s InspiredThis spring, look for ’70s inspiration in a printed jumpsuit like our Abstract Print Culottes Jumpsuit ($35). Add a beaded belt and, of course, a fedora ($35).

Stripes + Tote Bags
Stripes will always be a major player in spring fashion. This season, try wearing stripes on stripes—and don’t forget your favorite tote bag!

 Polka Dots + Mini Bags!
Once you put on our Drawstring Polka Dot Dress ($38.50), you’ll be sold. Featuring an oversized fit and midi length, this super comfy dress is a must-have. Just add a bright mini-bag to finish the look.

Romantic + Mules
Our Romantic Lace Dress ($38.50) has been getting a lot of attention on our Instagram page this week, and it’s easy to see why. Finish the look with a pair of pastel mules.

Off the Shoulder + Athletic Shoes
Two of my favorite trends this season all in one! I’ve been gushing all week about the new pair of sneakers I picked up at our newest store in Boulder, CO, and I love how they pair with our Off the Shoulder Mini Dress ($17.50).

Shop these pieces in stores this coming week!

 

January 29th, by Samantha Weaver Style Breakdown: Grace Coddington

By now you’ve probably heard the reports that Grace Coddington is stepping down as creative director of Vogue.

Fear not, Vogue diehards! Grace—and her signature red hair—will remain at Vogue as creative director at large. In the meanwhile, she’s devoting more time to projects like the upcoming film adaptation of her personal memoir Grace, and her fragrance collaboration with Comme des Garcons.

Even at 74, Coddington has added yet another title to her long list of accomplishments: style icon. Grace’s styling days may be slowing down at Vogue, but her personal style hasn’t lost any steam. You too can stand out like Grace using these four rules.

1. It’s all about the hairDon’t go running out to your colorist in hopes of matching Grace’s iconic coif. Do take a note from Grace: if and when you find a cut or color that suits you, STICK WITH IT.

2. Black is all you need to be chic.  Sometimes Grace adds a white button-down, but generally her looks begin with all black.

3. Add on bright accessories. This one’s a fashion no-brainer. Adding a pop of color is always a good thing.

4. Cats are cool. Cats are becoming as important to fashion (at least on Instagram) as this season’s must-have bag. Grace is a self-proclaimed Cat Lady but who can fault her? She also is the creator of Catwalk Cats, an illustration series—which may be turned into an animated film!

I can’t wait to see what the amazing Grace will do next!

January 22nd, 2016 by Samantha Weaver Meet Kachet!

Need styling advice on your most recent Crossroads find? Looking to re-organize your current wardrobe to get the maximum amount of wear out of it? Or maybe you simply want suggestions on what to make for dinner tonight?

Enter Kachet of The Lipstick Giraffe.

This Sacramento-based fashion and lifestyle enthusiast has one clear goal: “to show you that you can look and feel like a million bucks without breaking the bank,” and we can’t wait to see her in action. She describes her style as a mix of classic and modern with a pinch of funk, always with lipstick.

Please join me in welcoming Kachet to the Crossroads Style Council! I have a feeling you won’t want to miss out on her unique ability to style outfits on a budget.

 

January 20th, 2016 by Samantha Weaver Welcome to Boulder, CO

Boulder2
You may have heard the good news that Crossroads is now open in Colorado! Located at 1545 Pearl Street in the heart of bustling downtown Boulder, our 34th store location resides in a historic building just steps away from the Pearl Street Mall.

Boulder is located at the base of the Rocky Mountains and, despite the cold winter temperatures, is sunny about 300 days of the year. It is also home to the University of Colorado’s largest campus, making Boulder an increasingly young and active town.

Finding places to eat and drink around our store is super easy because of our central location. Looking for a strong cup of coffee? Head next door to The Cup for a double-shot latte and a homemade cookie.

For a quick lunch run, across the street to LYFE Kitchen or the Organic Sandwich Company. They serve up healthy sandwiches on homemade pretzel bread. Make sure to add their homemade giardiniera—it’s spicy and delicious!

For some post-shopping brew, pop into the Bohemian Biergarten just 3 blocks west on 13th street. They host a number of onsite events, including comedy and trivia nights, and you absolutely must try their pierogies and spätzle.

Still hungry? Head over to Pizzeria Locale for a Napolitano pizza, contorni from a wood-fired oven and their twist on a classic negroni. Trust me.

Follow our team on Instagram @crossroads_colorado for a look inside the store and for new items arriving daily.

See you soon in Boulder!

January 8th, 2016 by Samantha Weaver Meet Aimee!

Big news! We are excited to welcome Aimee Rancer, creator of The Ohio Transplant and San Francisco enthusiast, to the Crossroads Style Council!

Just one look at Aimee’s blog and you’ll be swept away by her infectious smile, rose-colored view of big city life, and, of course, her amazing style. I don’t know if there is such a thing as an Ohio meets California look, but somehow Aimee pulls off classic, casual, and cool with seemingly zero effort. She also believes in a hearty laugh, enjoys food, drink, and travel, and she loves to shop at Crossroads!

WELCOME, AIMEE!
