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.

November 14th, 2016 by Melanie Sutrathada Trend to Try: Statement Sleeves

As temperatures start to drop, I’m reaching for trends that call for a little more fabric and tons of drama like the statement sleeve. Whether you’re drawn to billowy off-the-shoulder numbers or romantic bell sleeves, these shirt silhouettes are stealing the spotlight this fall.

 

Here’s how some of our favorite bloggers are letting their sleeves do the talking:

Go big or go home with the biggest bell sleeves you ever did see. Add in a flared hemline for the perfect 70s vibe.

Pretty ruffled sleeves feel ultra-feminine and stylish.

November 11th, 2016 by Samantha Weaver 10 Wardrobe Essentials to Buy in Your Thirties

Truth: I just turned 32 and I’ve been working for Crossroads since I was 22. Needless to say, my style has change a lot over the last decade. Luckily (thanks to Crossroads), I’ve spent the last decade trading in styles that may not be “me” any longer for new and improved pieces fit for a woman in her thirties.

If you’re anything like me, you probably have a kind of “style uniform” and an appreciation for investment pieces. Of course, your taste will continue to evolve, and experimenting with trends from time to time is always fun, but now’s the time in your life to think of the adage “fewer, better things.”
