August 21st, 2015 by Samantha Weaver WWD MAGIC: A Buyer’s Tour

WWD Magic

WWD MAGIC is a globally-attended trade show that takes place every August, just off the Strip in the heart of Las Vegas. Shows like MAGIC, POOL, PROJECT and PLATFORM (just to name a few) bring the fashion world together to view upcoming fall and winter collections.

With the temperature hitting 110 degrees outside, we walked and shopped these shows to fill our stores with the top trends for 2015. Check out these 70’s-inspired pieces and cold-weather looks that you can look forward to seeing at a Crossroads location near you this fall!

July 10, 2015 by Samantha Weaver Meet Samantha of StyleInfurno

Put your hands together for our newest member of the Crossroads Style Council! Samantha of StyleInfurno (you can call her Sam) is a blogger based out of Sacramento, but she’s way more than that. This fashion lover and thrifting maven is also a designer, known for re-fabricating vintage finds into one-of-a-kind custom pieces.  On top of it all, I’m head-over-heels in love with her effortless California vibe.

Sam says her “summer go-to outfit almost always contains a pair of barely there, thrift store chic, denim cutoffs,” so I thought we’d take a moment to get inspired by some of her most classic denim looks. Welcome, Sam!

June 8, 2015, By Samantha Weaver Tropical Prints: Get the Island Look

Amelia

The moment I saw Amelia of Clotheshorse wearing our Hawaiian inspired blouse I knew it would fly off the shelves. Now because I love you I re-ordered this green and black top plus three NEW additional color ways! And I didn’t stop there, because this week at Crossroads stores you’ll find bold Hawaiian prints, tropical rompers and island-inspired accessories.

The OG Palm Print blouse, $18.50. This is the one that started it all. A pair of reflective sunglasses is a MUST with this one.

A tropical romper, like this ruffle hem is a piece you will find yourself coming back to again and again this summer, so make sure to pick this one up for just $16.50.

This yellow and blue version ($18.50) will be coming home with me this week. I love the softer color palette and it looks great against metallic accessories.

MAY 1, 2015 BY SAMANTHA High Style: Inside the New Exhibit

High-Style-Brooklyn-Museum-deYoung-FAMSF-2-e1429558814150

The Legion of Honor in San Francisco is currently showing a very special collection from the Brooklyn Museum that demonstrates fashion’s rise through the 1900’s. Some of my favorite pieces ranged from classic LBD’s by Coco Chanel to surreal jewelry pieces by Elsa Schiaparelli. Here’s a glimpse of what you’ll find inside:

Halston from the 1970’s. You can see why this fashion house has stayed true to silks.

Who knew they were sporting cut-outs in the 1940’s?
