Blog: Crossroads Style

January 18th, 2018 by Mary Elizabeth Styling Classic Converse All Stars

Heeey, I’m Mary.  You may have seen me around the Internet or on Crossroads’s Instagram feed at some point. I’ve somehow made it all these years on the Crossroads Style Council without an official Crossroads blog post.  So, here I am with a little about me, my style philosophy, and my favorite Crossroads finds!

Officially, my career is personal shopper and stylist. I work in fashion and interiors with individuals & brands. You could also call me a “Youtuber”, as my largest audience is at my channel HeyMaryElizabeth.  I live in Los Angeles with my mini schnauzer and nearby thoroughbred, dreaming of my future ranch and organic garden.

Born in the suburbs of Los Angeles, skate and surf culture permeated the air. Neighborhood kids searched for empty pools to skate, and Vans and Converse were the epitome of cool. And high tops were the height of it—I mean, of course the ones with the star were coolest. Duh.

Luckily, their appeal hasn’t worn off, and it’s been a lifelong love affair. I recently decided I needed a pair of high top white All Stars, and a few weeks later—as fate would have it—I stepped into Crossroads in Studio City to discover my size, like new, for under $20.  SOLD—the perfect addition for all my cropped pants. We’ll just call ‘em winter white.  A girly tomboy for life, here’s how I paired my new friend, Chuck:

MAY 5, 2015 BY JENNIFER BEILE Round Up: Summer Denim

The last thing I ever want to throw on in the summer is a pair of heavy jeans; the heat in Southern California is no joke! But my love for denim runs deep, and I end up wiggling myself into those skinnies, doing the little dance you all know you do. Lucky for us denim lovers, there are so many more options in style this season!

I’ve rounded up my favorite ways to wear summer denim, that won’t cause heat stroke or cause you to blend into the rest.

The Denim Dress

I have been collecting denim mini dresses like it is my job lately! They are so easy to throw on and accessorize for almost any occasion.
