Sabrina - Vintage Floral Look

Posted by Jamie Klinger-Krebs on May 3, 2015 3:59:00 PM

This month Sabrina is rocking one of the top trends for spring and summer - the vintage floral look. What is a vintage floral you may ask? Well, this floral pattern is on a dark background and it’s a standalone pattern in that you could just isolate one of the floral bouquets! It reminds me of wall paper my grandma had in one of her homes. This is a designer wrap dress by Nicole Miller. Wrap dresses are great because with an easy adjustment they can fit perfectly with little effort. The black background works very well and creates a sense of drama! We’ve topped it off with a fantastic on-trend cropped coral blazer, which gives it a sense of fun and a more daytime look. Since the pattern is so prevalent we kept the accessories on the smaller scale so as not to distract from the pattern. Drop earrings, vintage charm necklace and the cool coral sunglasses add just the right touch! The Da Diccino navy and gold heels compliment, but don't totally match the dress and add even more high fashion to this look. Sabrina could easily attend a meeting with clients, go to lunch, or slip off the jacket and be ready for a dinner out on the town. This is floral done right!

Bari - Pretty In Pink

Posted by Jamie Klinger-Krebs on May 1, 2015 5:12:00 PM

Bari has taken a cue from the fashion world and is thinking pink for spring and summer. This lovely dress, in a standalone color is more than enough on its own, right? But this hot pink neon dress, in an easy poly knit from Old Navy, isn’t just speaking for itself, it’s saying something about the vibrant personality of the wearer too! Bright colors exude confidence and playful attitude. We chose to use some classic Chanel-like accessories featuring a classic gold multi-strand chain necklace, as well as stacked and layered chain bracelets that were all originally from Target. Just for fun we added some leopard heels to bring just a little more sass and contrast to all the color. Even if you’re shy about wearing some of the season’s brightest tones, just remember that all you need is one great piece like this dress, a a blouse, or even an accessory to bring your fashion look for the season into trendy territory. Bari could easily wear this classy look to a graduation party, date night, or almost any affair where you need to dress to impress without too much fuss.The classic silhouette of the dress helps temper the bright color, and makes it more timeless than trendy!
