September 11th, 2017 by Melanie Sutrathada 6 Fall Outerwear Pieces for the New Season

After another hot and humid summer, we’re excited for the weather to finally cool down. Fall is here, and what do you do when the weather starts to get chilly? Warming your hands in front of the heater is one option, but our favorite is having a handful of outerwear pieces to get you through those brisk fall days.

Here are six key fall outerwear pieces you should pick up this fall!



1. With a classic olive green utility jacket and a scarf, you’re set for any and all fall outings this season. 


P2 - June Sixty Five

2. Recreate this look with a suede biker jacket and a plain white t-shirt.


P3 - Lisa Olsson

3. When the weather is colder than usual, slip into a long and cozy shearling jacket. Tone down the teddy-bear look by pairing it with some simple black clothing as your foundation. 


P4 - Masha Sedgwick

4. Nothing says fall quite like a rust-colored cardigan!


P5 - The Chriselle Factor

5. Trench coats are always a classic fall staple. They’re universally flattering, come in a variety of patterns, and–best of all—can instantly elevate an outfit.


P6 - Viva Luxury

6. The best thing about bomber jackets is that they’re incredibly versatile and can be worn in any season. For your next brunch out with your gal pals, go casual in bomber jacket paired with your favorite skinny jeans.

September 5th, 2017 by Jennifer Beile The Fashion Blogger’s New Frontier: YouTube

As the Internet becomes saturated with fashion bloggers across all platforms, we’re seeing more and more bloggers turn to YouTube and adding vlogger—video blogger—to their resumes. When bloggers surpass the ‘blogger only’ status and amass a following large enough to partner with like-minded brands, they become influencers who use their own brand as marketing tools for others. They must be a multi-talented, marketing machine and take advantage of every opportunity to reach their followers and hold their attention.

Vlogging is nothing new. However,  high-profile bloggers have recently begun adding YouTube vlogging channels to their online presence. Adding vlogs means being able to show more personality. It gives bloggers a new way to share content aside from the still photographs on their blogs.  I love seeing my favorite bloggers share something a little more personal and real with their readers. The bloggers who are able to expand into video will be the bloggers who continue to grow their brand successfully.

Take a look at some of my favorite bloggers who also create great video content!


Wendy’s Lookbook

Wendy began taking advantage of YouTube long before other bloggers hopped on the train. She has gained a following of over 600,000 subscribers, with videos often breaking half a million views. Her most-viewed videos tend to fall under the “How to Wear” category; check out 25 Ways to Wear a Scarf in 4.5 Minutes (below), Maxi Skirt Pairings, and Pairings: Leather Jacket.


B. Jones Style

Beth was one of the first bloggers I fell in love with. She has always used YouTube as a tool, but she’s recently committed to posting a new video every week. I highly recommend her “What I Wore” videos, where she shares her outfits of the month. It gives me so much inspiration seeing how Beth is able to mix, match, and incorporate all her thrift and vintage finds into her wardrobe!


The Blonde Salad

Relatively new to vlogging, Chiara documents her world travels, beauty advice, and health and fitness routines for her loyal readers on her channel.


Song of Style

Aimee receives hundreds of thousands of views on her YouTube channel. Her specialty is videos showing her fans how to style one piece multiple ways. 9 Ways to Wear a White T-Shirt (below), 7 Ways to Wear Leggings, and 8 Ways to Wear a Slip Dress are a few of my favorites. Unlike many of the bloggers I love to follow, I have a small closet, and remixing is something that I practice and preach!


We Wore What

Danielle has added video to her ever-expanding blogger resume after experiencing positive feedback with her Snapchat and Instagram stories. She opens up about her beauty routines, shopping hauls, and fitness favorites on her channel.


Margo & Me

Jenny produces regular series on her YouTube channel, such as Deskside Diaries, The Beauty Edit, and My Style. They’re recorded in a makeshift studio in her dining room, bringing you closer to her everyday life. Although she only started vlogging in 2016, Jenny’s polished videos have true editorial vibes.


Something Navy

Arielle launched her YouTube channel just earlier this year, but she’s already managed to show her fans more of her personality. Between her carefully curated blog and her more personal channel, she has her followers hooked!

August 30th, 2017 by Melanie Sutrathada 6 Wedding Guest Outfit Ideas for Late Summer

Clueless about what you should wear to that end-of-summer wedding? No worries—I’ve put together not one, but six different options. Here are my favorite wedding guest outfit ideas for your next love-filled celebration:

wedding guest

A floral number that hits above the knee is a perfect choice for attending a wedding in. Pair it with an adorable clutch that holds your essentials.


P2 - Girl With Curves

If the dress code calls for something more formal, lean towards a dress in darker colors. Rock an A-line off-the-shoulder dress with your hair swept to the side for a polished, timeless look. 


P3 - I Dress Myselff

When it comes to the late summertime, don’t be afraid to wear a dress that has a bit of sass to it. Opt for a dress with a small cut-out or slit to keep it flirty yet appropriate.


P4 - Lace and Locks

Keep it minimal and chic with a simple dual-toned dress.


Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

A wedding reception is the perfect opportunity for you to bring out that vintage piece you stored away. Your look will be unique and one-of-a-kind!


P6 - With Love From Kat

For an outdoor wedding, an off-the-shoulder dress in a light, breathable material is practical and fashion-forward. Not only will it photograph well for Instagram, you don’t have to worry about it getting too hot to wear.
