December 2nd, 2016 by Samantha Weaver This Year’s Must Have Bag – The Fanny Pack!

Every season fashion trends come and go. Some we miss once they’ve gone while others we’re happy to say goodbye to. The fanny pack might fall into “bye-bye see you later” category for most, but if you ask me I’m ecstatic they’re back!

Gone are the days of calling these bum bags “fanny packs” because these days they’re being worn across the chest, with an evening dress and even over a thick winter coat. This year they’re being featured as the ultimate hands-free accessory that can hold your gadgets and gizmos and look polished all at the same time. Here in tech country these hip bags are fast becoming the next-must have designer purse.

What do you think? Yay or Nay?

Have we changed your mind about belt bags? We sure hope so, because we think they’re so hot right now.

July 1st, 2016 by Samantha Weaver Meet Cassidy!

 Meet Cassidy Gard—she’s our newest addition to the Crossroads Style Council! This LA-based Jane of all trades interviews celebs by day, but by night, you can find her making videos about things she likes: DIY, cooking, lifestyle, and fashion!


MOTIVATED ENTREPRENEUR

Cassidy is an entertainment reporter who covers everything from press junkets to red carpet premieres via her very own production company. Whoa! This girl’s got goals.

FASHION ENTHUSIAST

You’ll see Cassidy sporting her #CrossroadsFinds everywhere, from her YouTube videos and even on the red carpet! When it comes to shopping, Cassidy admits she’s at Crossroads at least once a week.

“I love discovering the cutest little dresses from Diane von Furstenberg, Cynthia Rowley, Topshop—you name it.”

BEAUTY & DIY MAVEN

From face masks to home makeovers, Cassidy shows us how in her fun and easy video tutorials.

L.A. STYLE

We love Cassidy’s all-American style, which favors classic pieces mixed with bright colors (queue denim and stripes!).

ADVENTURE

Cassidy isn’t afraid of showing us her outdoors-y side, whether she’s by the ocean or on a mountain doing yoga. Namaste.

FUNNY GIRL

Cassidy keeps it real (and hilarious) in her 8-part series on her very own “quarter life crisis.” Fun fact: every piece of clothing in this episode is from Crossroads!

Welcome, Cassidy!

February 12th, 2016 by Samantha Weaver Crossroads // Intentionally Blank

Big news: Crossroads is releasing select styles from shoe and lifestyle brand “Intentionally ______.”

I have been coveting every single pair of shoes to come out of this emerging line since day one, so let me give you the rundown. “Intentionally _____.” was born in Los Angeles in 2014 by creative director Ty McBride. His vision then, as it is today, was “to provide shoes to women that work with their life, with their work, with their personal style and beyond.” Ty is also a fan of Crossroads—so we love him even more for that.

“Intentionally _____.” makes the perfected version of your dream shoe whether that be a killer oxford, mule or boot.

Solid. Detailed but not fussy. Stylish.

“Intentionally _____.”

Look for these styles and more at select Crossroads stores this 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!
