Trendspotting: Cut It Out | 04.29.14

Cut outs are nothing new, but laser cutting has been making a bold statement lately! The intricate cut outs created by laser cutting are soft and feminine, but at the same time striking and elegant. They show some skin, but not too much. They are playful, but not junior. Laser cut details add a certain je ne sais pas to any look and they are hitting all the right notes this spring!

Clear Skies | 3.19.14

It’s a rainy day today, but I am hoping it clears up soon and the sun comes back!

And speaking of clear, sometimes the perfect addition to your room or wardrobe is no color at all! Have you ever thought of going clear??

Why clear? Well, in the home, it provides function (example: seating, table, etc) without obstructing anything visually. It’s ideal for small spaces, but looks great anywhere! In the dining room below, imagine wood chairs that match the dining room table. The overall look would be much heavier, bulkier and darker. The clear Ghost chairs keep things light and airy because they visually don’t add any weight (note: this does NOT work in clothing. wink wink).

I think we can all imagine what clear cloths would look like on us, but what about clear accessorizing. If we’re talking bangles & baubles, it has the same affect as the above described chairs. If we’re talking clutch/purse/handbag, the effect is a modern/whimsical meetup that lets you decide if your carryall will actually carry all (or very little indeed). A clear purse gives the option of accessorizing with all the fun make up and trinkets that are usually hidden in our bags or forces us to pare down to the bare minimum.

So, I ask again… Do you do clear? Personally, I love ghost chairs and want some for my very own. I can’t quite get behind the clear purse trend, but I may make an exception for one of these:

Trendspotter: Stripes On Stripes | 9.12.13

Stripes is one thing. But stripes on stripes… whole new ballgame.

I love trends that include mixing patterns (after all, normal is boring). I think they key to this one is different size and/or different orientated stripes. Some big, some small. Some vertical, some horizontal. It works in your closet & in your home! Will you be layering stripes any time soon?

Get it for yourself:

Happy Thursday!
