Haley - Pairing Perfect Separates

Posted by Jamie Klinger-Krebs on Jun 1, 2015 11:41:00 AM

Haley was our 2013 model contest winner, and she sure does look like she took the prize for this outfit! When putting together separates you have to allow one unique piece to really stand out. For example, the skirt here, in a watercolor-like print from The Limited, was a great start for the rest of the pieces to compliment. At only $4.99, I would venture to say this skirt, much like the one our other model this month, was money well spent! A sequin top in black is a perfect piece to have in your closet. Seriously, this wardrobe work horse can be dressed up or down, and this one, a Field Manor tank totally compliments the skirt without detracting from it. A subtle, sparkly top like this is a wardrobe staple in my book. TIP:  Look for sequin tops that fit well in neutral tones like gray, black, white and taupe next time you’re shopping at Goodwill. You’ll be amazed at how they can transform a dowdy blazer and jeans into fashion! Now to layer on some accessories, we used some black feather earrings, a fabulous pendant necklace with green beading, and a multi-color bracelet to create a sophisticated and fun look. The icing on the cake is the on-trend pair of black patent leather Mary Jane-style shoes from Calvin Klein that were priced at just $6.99.  Each and every item here is a winner, and would be great wardrobe builders for any young lady’s closet! She looks truly AMAZING don’t you think?

Annisa - Fashion-Forward Look for Summer

Posted by Jamie Klinger-Krebs on Jun 1, 2015 11:29:00 AM

Annisa is a teenage lady, so she knows what’s cool and what isn’t. When we put this look for early summer together, I was thrilled that she really liked it! This layered-look is perfect for this time of year - especially given the fluctuation in temperatures. We put three pieces, which are interesting and unique on their own, together for one very fashion-forward look! Pleats are all the rage, so this Forever 21 mini in gray, pink and black was a great place to start this look. Embellished t-shirts are always a good option for layering on some style in the unpredictable summer months. This one from Merona, was only $2.99 and features a metallic deer head! Topping it all off is a blue-and-tan jacket that’s a lightweight wonder of versatility, and at $4.99 could work with so many different outfits!  Accessories are kept to a minimum here, and feature an embellished cross, a simple gray, and an “I Heart Boys” bracelets, which keeps it all young and fresh just like Annisa! The cool boots are our model’s own, and will work year-round to keep her on the cutting edge of style!  TIP: When shopping at Goodwill ALWAYS check out the shoe area, you never know what you’re going to find, in or out of season. So don’t pass up those cool boots in the heat of July, you may need them come fall!

Annisa's Favorite Item: Forever 21 skirt
