One for the Money

There’s nothing better than that throw-it-on-and-go piece; it’s effortless, minimal and requires little thinking, which is great for those late nights that meet early mornings. Sometimes that minimal vibe is exactly what I need. But most of the time, I’m looking for a little something more. That’s the best part about that perfect jumpsuit – it can be just what you want it to. Keep it simple or add layers and accessories to get that stand-out style. Nothing beats versatility when you’re a fashion addict.

These pants though; what a seriously good Forever 21 find. Soft, silky material, comfy fit, and an up-and-coming pant trend, these babies have everything I could ask for and more in something that covers my gams. I’m obsessed and hopefully you are too; this is the first feature of these pants and Manic and definitely not the last. Don’t worry – variations and creativity to come.

Panama and Prints in Palm Springs

A wide-brim, panama hat and silky, Hawaiian printed dress seemed like the perfect combination for a little getaway to Palm Springs. And functional, surprisingly. The brim of the hat shades my face from the suns harsh rays while the dresses thin material is cool enough for the scorching, desert heat. Paired with my new Forever 21 booties (yes, Forever. They just look so much more designer than that), it’s the perfect outfit for a night under the stars and California palm trees.

Yesterday was a relaxing, yet productive day working on all our new, handmade jewelry! Half way through, we realized we were dressed and ready for yet another blog post. We’re obsessing over overalls, and we wouldn’t mind a few more pairs in various washes and colors galore. Wether or not their your cup of tee, you’ll still have to admit that they look pretty great paired alongside our new armlet (arm-bracelet, obviously). This is just one of many of our new pieces for our Fall jewelry collection! Stay tuned for more sneak peaks and the big debut coming soon.

Anything but Basic

There’s something about statement, bold prints that I just can’t get away from. I’m constantly thinking ‘buy more basics’ when shopping online or skipping through the mall. But I can’t help myself; I guess I’m just not a basic bitch. I love mixing prints and layering pieces over pieces over pieces. I love things like a printed, shift dress, like this one from Soft Joie. It’s perfect enough to stand alone. But ‘one is the loneliest number,’ so why wear one piece of clothing when you could wear two or three or four. If I’m going to go basic, it still has to have pizazz. I’m thinking a monochromatic look with bold shapes or an overdose of accessories or those layers I mentioned before.

Looking back on those private school uniforms give me the giggles. At that time, it was anything but funny: the knee length skirts, awkwardly pleated shorts (that, with the right pieces, I honestly feel really could have been statement making), and the constant having to tuck in my shirt (not a chic half tuck either.) At those awkward stages of my life, it was anything but a fashionista in the making. I fell in love with this dress the instant I saw it. Creative hemlines mixed with a simple shape and color drew me in. It reminds me of days in those plaid skirts and Dr. Marten’s that could have been so cool with some freedom and allowed creativity. So, today I’m channeling my past and making uniform wear chic with converse, a fringed, statement necklace, and a bad-ass pair of golden sunnies that reflect that sun.

The Denim Skirt Rises Again

IMG_4079

Crop tops and overalls galore. We’re sure you’ve noticed the resurgence of the 90’s in all things fashion recently. The best part about this blast from the past? It’s new and updated with a chic, modern spin on each and every trend. And although there are some things that should stay in the past, fashionistas everywhere are doing a fab job in breathing new life into old trend. You might feel like crop tops and overalls are here to stay but are old news. That’s why our focus today is on a trend that’s resurfacing in the fashion world that you probably wished had stayed in the past – the denim skirt. Yup, it’s here again! But not what you’re thinking. We don’t mean those old, denim mini skirts from Abercrombie & Fitch with the weird fading on the front and back or with that weird, lace-up closure that belongs on your shoes in place of a fly and zipper. We’re talking about denim skirts in a whole new way: a-line silhouettes to flatter every body type, midi-length, chambray beauties that scream chic, and denim skirts with flounces or folds. The denim skirt has been reborn and we love it. It’s the perfect piece for summer when the sun is shinning hot, hot, hot! I chose this perfect, acid-washed number from ASOS. It’s mini but has somewhat of an A-line silhouette to ensure it’s beyond 90’s. I love the high waistline that allows me to still rock the crop top. And the fading of the fabric has me falling in love. Pair it with Birkenstocks for a relaxing day in the sun or add booties or chunky heels to dress it up for my night out, this skirt is ready to help me take on the summer.

WE ALWAYS WANT SOMETHING WEDNESDAY

We always want something. And this week, we want to look chic as the colorful lights of fireworks fill the sky and we chant “USA! USA! USA!” because we can. It’s easy to get swept away in the spirit of the Good Ole’ USA and buy a few pieces you’ll never wear again that leave you looking like a little kid holding sparklers. This year, we’re dreaming of something better. This Wednesday, we want outfit. Outfits that make this country proud for July 4th and every day afterwards. You’ll be ready for backyard barbecues, long nights beach-side, and any other patriotic pastimes you have planned.

Stripes of Life

unnamed (20)

I saw this little striped number while I was working at Nordstrom ,and the rest is history; that baby became mine. and I was obsessed. It was simple, yet different. It was a piece I instantly fell in love with for both it’s patten and shape. I saw endless possibilities for it as a staple in both my summer and fall/winter wardrobes. So here it is for summer; at least one of the many ways I’ll be wearing it this summer. I took what could be seen as simple and took it up a notch with a great, moto-inspired vest and statement body chain then finished it off with a killer combination of holographic, pointed-toe shoes and floral socks.

Here Comes the Night Time

IMG_3966

These pants deserved to be the star of some blog photos. The sun had set for today, but I wasn’t about to let that stop be from showing off my fab new pants. Part pants, part skirt thing, these babies are ready for everything. Pairing them with some Converse and a cropped tank for an easy day running errands or blogging at Starbucks or paired with some pointed flats and statement top for a night out. The number of outfits I can create in my ming while incorporating these pants is almost astounding. I’m obsessed, and you should be too.
