Charley - Epic Pattern Mixing

Posted by Jamie Klinger-Krebs on Apr 1, 2014 12:00:00 AM

Charley takes us into the realm of pattern mixing on an epic scale. This pint-sized fashionista loves to play act and set her own standards of beauty and style. For this springtime fresh look we illustrate how colors, patterns, and prints DO NOT have to match to commingle! The floral print dress from Bonnie Jean has personality and a range of hues in Charley’s favorite color, pink! That’s always a good basis for bringing in other prints or colors in the same family. I found this Children’s Place jacket that was just as cool as our model. It featured purple, floral motifs, and leopard all in one fancy package! While this may be over-the-top for some, this is perfect for the whimsical world she occupies! Charley helped us accessorize with a fancy ring, pearl and shell earrings, and a dream catcher necklace. Bringing it all back to earth are the black flats and footless tights that are a mainstay for little girls and moms everywhere! I’m having a ball just looking at her aren’t you?

Charley's Favorite Item:
Bonnie Jean polyester, pink floral dress

Jerricka - Spring Into Summer Style

Posted by Jamie Klinger-Krebs on Apr 1, 2014 12:00:00 AM
Jerricka is minty fresh in this breezy and easy to pull off spring into summer style. A nod to the summer sky to come, we based her outfit on the mint green/blue BCBG Max Azria top. This delicate tunic featured some beautiful beadwork on the front for a subtle shimmer. With something like this all you need are some neutral pieces to pair it with to allow it to shine. White jeans, like Jerricka’s own here, are a must have for the warm weather wardrobe. They lend themselves to any color or pattern, and have that clean crisp look! We added some sequin earrings for sparkle and an oversized cocktail ring for added drama. A simple pair of metallic pumps, like the ones shown here in silver can also be a key wardrobe builder for summertime fashion. They can be worn with jeans, dresses, and almost anything else you can think of. The silver tone complements all colors and fabric in different ways, but always look fashion forward, just like Jerricka does in this amazing look!

Jerricka's Favorite Item: BCBG Maxazria light green/mint tunic
