See you, 2016.

 2016, Thank you. I cannot think of another way to start off this post. Usually I want to think about what I didn’t get done each year and hurry and focus on the next. But I decided to actually do some reflecting this year.


Is it to late to put Loéil under the tree?

Minimal LA based brand Loéil

Dear Santa,

I can't figure out if this brand is for the minimalist or an extreme maximalist? Neon poppy to muted creams. Knits, shearling, satin, suedes, oh my. Santa, I don't want to drag it on, but Loéil's December collection just came out and the Ellin top sold out the first day. If you can just put some of these under the tree, I will smile forever, and I promise to bless the blogosphere with the pieces.... Santa pls.

Trend Report: The Coat

Fall 2016 Winter 2017 Fashion Trends

Have you bought your coat for this Winter yet? If you haven't, prepare yourself, if you have, prepare to buy another. The coats of A/W 16 are bright, extreme, and bold. From printed patterns to 3d details, these coats will have you in awe. And although these pieces may push the "everyday" limits, you've got to remember Rihanna and her $15,000 Saint Laurent heart red coat.

Denim for this Fall is not for the Ordinary

Fall/Winter 2016 Denim Trends
Calling all of my bold spirits and not-so-perfect garment lovers: the denim trends of this Fall are in your favor! Denim has been slow moving in trends but they are picking up some speed lately. If you’re tired of “skinny” jeans, and flares aren’t for you, or heck, you’re just fashionably exciting, these trends may appeal to you.


Trend Report: Blue Stripes

Blue Stripes is the trend this season amongst bloggers, designers, and fashion lovers

Next to white and black, it seems like the minimal dressers are adopting this not-so-nautical blue and white pattern. The stripes sometimes are bold, or alternating, or barely-there pinstripe. This trend actually hit the runways in 2014, but here it is just arriving to e-commerce sites and stores this year. 

Australia has been very big on this trend, as seen in their street style photographers archives and by their local designers. Also you may have noticed a surge of light blue cotton pieces during the releases of spring/summer wear in stores. These two trends are hand in hand.  See below the "it" pieces and where to buy them:


See you again, Chi-Town

“Are we on the North side or the South side Ma?” I asked her over a million times during our 4-day stay in the Windy City. If you have ever visited there with no knowledge, that little bridge over the river will confuse you days on. The only thing that helped was knowing if I was near State St. or N. Michigan (The Magnificent Mile). Cause of course I can link things through shopping (giggles).


Fashion has been ready for Cuba

As Cuba opens up to US tourism and relations, the fashion world is not far behind. Or maybe, we’ve been waiting. Karl Lagerfeld hosted his Chanel Resort 2017 collection there this past weekend in the capitol Havana and it literally took over the fashion press. While traditional wear is not everyday for many Cubans, and is not a definition for their style today, it is trending now globally.  Cuba's Latin influences in their traditional women’s dress have lingered in designers' collections for seasons now. Tiered, or multi-leveled and exaggerated ruffled garments, bright floral embroidery and light, airy fabrics are included. Cuba's art history is also very rich, with colors, high contrast, and organic shapes. So I added some in. The artworks featured are by Mario Carreño, a Cuban artist (1913-1999).


The Ellery Effect

snooper dan street style

"I'll never wear bell bottoms" you said, "That was so 70s" you said, but now you're on Zara waiting for those Extra Flare trousers to be restocked. Just as flare jeans are coming back in we want flare everywhere from the sleeves to the hem of our dresses and Ellery can be one to blame.

The brand founded by Kym Ellery in 2010 hasn't left Vogue and WWD's articles since her first collection. From the street style of editors and bloggers, to her fashion shows, Ellery's pieces stand out and awe audiences. The Flare Pants from the  2014 Ready To Wear collection have created the most buzz. You'll either find them dangerous to walk in or just drop dead amazing, either way you can't look away. The brand has expanded to a recent denim and eyewear line while still  creating their flared garments and elongated frilly sleeved tops. And don't worry, if you're not in the range to just snag up one of her $700 pieces, smaller brands have caught on the the Ellery Effect.


6 places/brands I can't wait to shop with in 2016



Base Range lingerie cotton underwear

Base Range is basic, modern, and conscious, all-in-one of course. Organic materials is just a little bit of what their about. The brand is focused on the sustainability of their products while not treating it like a luxury. Styles are very simple including bras with cut outs, bodysuits that you can wear dressed up or down, and t-shirts. While to many people $28 for a pair of underwear may still be too much, remember that you're paying to support a message, and a movement.
