MARCH 16, 2015 BY BETH JONES Style Icon: Linda Rodin

This week’s style crush is the perfect example of having style at any age. It’s stylist and skincare guru, Linda Rodin.

She’s the epitome of style-cool! Always one to wear a statement lip color, some fabulous shades and a chic messy bun. Her style is Effortless with a capital “E”. It’s never just one thing; she mixes in this and that and always makes it look like it was made just for her.

I’ll be taking notes now, and when I’m in my 60’s–she’s just that cool.

MARCH 10, 2015 BY JENNIFER BEILE Round Up: Top 3 Takeaways from the 70’s Trend

Piggybacking on my last round-up post and Samantha’s latest blog post, I wanted to highlight my favorite upcoming spring trend that I purposely left out last week, so as to bring proper attention to it: the 70’s. Looks inspired by the 70’s are coming back in a big way! I’ve rounded up my 3 favorite 70’s inspired trends that are currently wearable and accessible, and can even be modernized. The best part about these trends is that they each have features that can be incorporated into styles across the board.

Romantic Bohemian

Think flowy silhouettes, light fabrics, soft colors and fun patterns! Bohemian style is all about free spirited expression and unleashing your inner goddess.

Flared Pants

A good pair of high waist, flared denim is always a wardrobe staple, and the 70’s trend is bringing the flare to the forefront of the season and introducing a new generation to the beauty of culottes and a bevy of other
statement pants.

Suede

I don’t think suede gets enough credit in the commercial fashion world– it sometimes gets a bad rap for being old or heavy. But suede can work with so many different styles–from 70’s to rocker chic–and is being brought back with a refreshing view in bright colors and modern shapes.

MARCH 5, 2015 BY SAMANTHA That 70’s Look: Bohemian Pieces
In Stores

This season, everyone from Gucci to Dior are jumping on the bohemian bandwagon. This means you can look forward to easy-to-wear pieces inspired by the hippie movement of the late 60’s, with just a dash of late 70’s Marrakesh thrown in.

Perfect for a summer full of fun festivals–or even just a day by the riverside–we’re sharing how to get that 60’s/70’s look with pieces pulled straight from our stores’ newest arrivals.

70s-037

Getting that bohemian vibe is a no-brainer: keep it simple with embroidered pieces, lots of fringe, round sunnies and of course Birkenstock (or at least Birkenstock-inspired) sandals.

70s-0122

Our Lace Insert Maxi Skirt, $38.50, sits high on the waist, is made of lightweight floral fabric and is our top pick for what to wear to
Coachella 2015
.

70s-0222

Oh and that coin belt? Yup, we’re obsessed too. Throw it on over denim shorts, your bikini or a delicate maxi skirt and snap!: instant festival style.

70s-0382

A linen tunic layered over ripped denim is an absolute must this spring. Add our Wide Brim Panama hat to accomplish that lusted-after relaxed
weekend vibe.

70s-0582

Try our Bell Sleeved Maxi Blouse, $28.50 on for size. Available in white floral (pictured above) and black paisley.

70s-0782

For a simple summertime look, go for an embroidered cotton tank and super flared bell bottoms. And, if you dare, add a fanny pack. ( I know, I know — but it’s the perfect bag for festival season because you can roam hands free!)

I’m personally gearing up for spring by hoarding embroidered pieces, and my newest find is this puebla dress — and I must say I love it and am on the hunt for more like it!
