November 15th, 2018 by Jennifer Beile 6 Celebrities Who Style Themselves

We often look to our favorite celebrities for style inspiration, but most celebrities use stylists to put together their every outfit; from press tours to red carpets, and even everyday looks caught by the paparazzi.  How much work actually goes into choosing clothing for every appearance is a part of the entertainment industry that often gets written off: pinpointing a client’s personal style, securing pieces from showrooms and designers, fittings, transporting, and the insane schedule. So to say that I am a bit impressed by those busy and successful celebrities who not only take the time to style themselves, but by those who consistently prove that they know what they are doing, is an understatement.

Here are 6 of my favorite self-styled celebrities who consistently knock it out of the park.

 

Blake Lively
The ever chic Blake Lively has never had a fashion stylist and consistently tops the best dressed lists – on and off the carpet. She has explained it as a creative outlet, and a bit of a control issue. Whatever the reason, I always look forward to Blake Lively’s style choices!

Emmy Rossum
Emmy loves fashion so much that she oftentimes works without a stylist, even working directly with designers and PR firms herself to secure looks for her red carpet appearances.

 

Diane Kruger
Diane Kruger decided to style herself after seeing pictures of herself dressed by stylists and realizing she was becoming a clone of others, instead of shining as an individual.

 

Kate Moss
It’s not surprising that the supermodel turned fashion designer who exudes a femme fatal confidence doesn’t need to rely on a stylist.

 

January Jones
January Jones doesn’t like being told what to do – or wear. She does not see the sense in wearing something she doesn’t feel good in or like herself, just because an expert tells her to.

 

Diana Keaton
An icon in more than one ways, Diane Keaton has created a style for herself consisting of borrowing from the boys, unexpected details and silhouettes, and quirky accessories.

November 14th, 2018 by Melanie Sutrathada 6 Plaid Pieces You’ll Want to Pick Up Instantly

Ready to rock some plaid? We are too! If you’ve been on the hunt for more plaid prints in your life (because who could resist?), you’ll want to get your hands on some of these pieces ASAP.

Here are six plaid pieces that we can’t get enough of:

We’ll find any excuse to wear a plaid blazer this season. Tip: We’re loving these oversized blazer prints that you can throw over a dress for work!

When in doubt, wear a long plaid coat as the focal point of your outfit!

 

For chillier days that require a few extra layers, try a red, black and white scarf.

 

Anyone catching major Cher Horowitz vibes with this yellow plaid dress? Take us back to the 90’s!

Julia Engel has totally captured all the feminine vibes in this fun plaid skirt. Who else thinks this outfit is perfect for a picnic at the park?

 

Nail urban style by pairing high-waisted plaid pants with a leather jacket.

November 13th, 2018 by Jennifer Beile Fall Outfit Inspo That Doesn’t Involve Denim

It’s not uncommon to depend on denim once the seasons change and the temperatures lower. It’s also too easy to get into a style rut when depending on one type of bottom for the entirety of your seasonal wardrobe.  Give your denim a break and be inspired to take a more creative approach with your fall dressing – without wearing a single pair of jeans.

 

Take your jumpsuits beyond spring and summer and add a jacket or sweater as an outer layer.

Add some texture with fall’s hottest trend, corduroy. Find a two piece set like Olivia and mix and match with your wardrobe throughout the season.

 

Trade in your true blues for a pair of camel or brown trousers for an authentic autumnal look.

 

Throw a blazer over your favorite midi and complete the outfit with a pair of boots to take you from work to date night.

 

Suits are no longer resigned to work wear, and have quickly become a go-to favorite for casual wear in place of denim.

 

Swap out your favorite jeans for a statement making skirt.

Happy Friday! We’ve successfully made it through another week and are inching closer and closer to the freedom of the weekend! The following are my favorite style images, articles, and moments from this week. Enjoy!

Brittany found a fierce statement bag at her local Crossroads to compliment her look. Remember to share your favorite #CrossroadsFinds on Instagram!

Jessie wins for my favorite Instagram #OOTD this week in her perfectly autumnal look, right down to her super trendy snakeskin print boots.

 

Eva Chen just released a new children’s book – “Juno Valentine and the Magical Shoes” – and this #bossbabe is killing the book tour style game! Be sure to follow Eva to see all her stunning looks – and also because she is one of the most influential people in fashion.

 

The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund was created to help up and coming American fashion designers succeed in the industry with an award of $400,000 to support their dreams. See all the show stopping red carpet looks from the 2018 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund awards held November 5th!

 

Guys. This is not a drill. The Spice Girls are reuniting. The. Spice. Girls. This is a 90’s girl dream come true and even though Victoria Beckham won’t be joining them, I am 100% in! Now if only they would add tour dates to the US!

 

Piggybacking on the Spice Girls announcement brings me to my favorite celebrity throwback from Adele. I think she embodies everyone’s feelings for this Spice Girls reunion!

 

Create & Cultivate is an online platform and conference for women creatives and entrepreneurs to support one another and help one another learn and succeed. They held an “Everyone Welcome” pop up in Los Angeles this past weekend with so many inspiring women including key note speaker Rashida Jones to panelists like Nicole Richie and Hannah Lux Davis. Check out the best moments here.

 

I’ve just come across the lovely Pandora Sykes and not only instantly fell in love with her style, but also her writing. Since becoming a mother myself, I’ve struggled with my identity via my style. It’s not always conducive to a stay at home mom’s lifestyle to wear the latest trends; my number one priority is being comfortable so that it’s easier for me to focus on my son. I love Pandora’s take on what comfortable can mean for people at different points in their life, specifically what dressing like a mom actually means. Read her insightful thoughts here.

 

Veteran fashion blogger Aimee Song has released a second book, “World of Style”. It is a stunning coffee table book that focuses on Aimee’s travels includes her favorite places eat, shop, and activity recommendations in each location.
