Denim Fashion

90's Child Fashion Trend

Fashion has been giving us a lot of throwback styles lately. We saw a surge in ‘70s style last year with the billowy silhouettes and vintage fabrics that are still holding strong on the trends map. The ‘70s weren’t the only decade to make a big fashion comeback. Enter the ‘90s, which brought us droves of flannel, chokers galore, and a modern look at denim on denim–something we never thought could be revived from the archives, but now ever top model is sporting!

Which brings me to today’s post: a feature on denim fashion that’s no longer an option for fashion enthusiasts, but a must. Denim has overtaken our wardrobes and made us fall in love all over again. Not only are we wearing denim jeans, but we’re wearing denim tops, dresses, and even headwear. There is no denying the denim trend, and below I’ll go over some of the best ways to wear denim this season. You’ll want to take notes.

Denim on Denim

There is no doubt that a lot of us probably still have that photo of Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake at the 2001 AMAs ingrained in our minds forever. Just in case you don’t, here’s a refresher. Luckily, the denim-on-denim look is trending this time around are a lot more stylish and a lot less… faded. The key to wearing it is choosing two washes that contrast well with each other, making it obvious that they are in fact two different garments. Forbes says the secret is balance, and I couldn’t agree more.

Denim Tops

If you’re not feeling bold enough to work the double-denim look, denim tops are a great way to stay on-trend without feeling like you’re taking a huge fashion risk. Whether you choose a chambray button-up or a dark-washed blouse, the possibilities are endless for chic denim fashion. When it comes to pairing your denim shirt with pants, the curators at Lyst are showing a bunch of flattering trousers that would be perfect complements to your denim top. My vote is for cool, black, skinnies!

Denim Dresses

Sometimes putting an outfit together is much harder than anticipated. Especially when you’re trying a new trend and aren’t sure how comfortable you are with it yet. It can be very stressful to create an ensemble you’re proud of. That’s why dresses always save the day! You just throw ‘em on and go. In the case of denim, there are plenty of shift denim dresses and retro button-up styles that exude coolness. Who What Wear gives great tips on styling these types of frocks, like the importance of layering.

There’s no doubt that denim fashion is hot right now, so get creative with your jean outfits! You’ll be surprised at just how many cool combinations turn out to be chic.

Jewel’s powerful story and inspirational words

Jewel at AOL BUILD

Yesterday I recently visited the set of AOL Build, where the mega online hub hosts daily interviews with big named celebrities. I sat in on an interview with folk-country singer Jewel. If you grew up in the ’90s like I did, you’d remember jammin’ to her songs on the radio along with Savage Garden.

What I did not remember was how much Jewel had overcome at such a young age. She grew up in an abusive household, ran away at 15, became homeless at 16 and started stealing to make it through. She then started singing and songwriting which led her to become an American sensation.

But how did Jewel turn her life around? She mentioned in the interview that while shoplifting a sundress, she looked at herself in the mirror, and thought “I became the statistic”. With massive anxiety (something I can relate to) she became very aware of her hands to calm herself down and to become more present. Jewel went on to mention that our hands are the tools of our thoughts; if you really want to know what you are thinking and feeling watch your hands. I thought this was an interesting point.

Jewel spoke upon Happiness as a process. It is acknowledging pain as a part of life- it is inescapable, but being present in the very moment helps make the process better. It allows happiness to be part of the process when intertwining present gratitude with the hardship. I also didn’t realize how beyond intelligent and funny Jewel is! All of which you can see in the interview below.

The talented artist is launching  a new website soon entitled Never Broken, and has a book out now that will help those who suffer from anxiety or overcoming life obstacles. From hearing her speak, I have a new respect for Jewel as an artist, a survivor, and as a human being.

Misha Collection SS’17 NYFW

img_7589

The Misha Collection runway show was held at Skylight Clarkson on September 9th. I knew very little about the Australian designer, but the moment I began reading about the young entrepreneur I gravitated towards her clothes. Starting at the age of 19 selling clothes on eBay to forming Misha in her family’s garage,  I was eager to see what Michelle- the founder- drew up for the Spring Summer line.

The show opened in a beautiful sequence of leopard print numbers then shifted to light metallics and structured white dresses. The collection on a whole was a very sultry mix of dresses, jumpsuits, and bodysuits. I love how detailed each piece was and filled to the brim with texture. I also appreciated the immaculately cut and tailoring of each look to fit a woman’s body.

Jourdan Dunn was the distinct model in this show and wore the closing look- a gold lamé dress. You can see her in the first and last photos! Michelle is featured in the last photo as well.

Noon by Noor SS ’17 at NYFW

img_5978

On September 8th, Noon by Noor held their Spring Summer 2017 runway collection at Skylight Clarkson during New York Fashion Week. Alexa Chung, Happily Grey, and a few other big league bloggers rolled out to attend the early morning show.

Since it was the first official day of NYFW, the staff was still getting a hang of seating, which inevitably lead me to wait patiently on the sideline. I didn’t mind though because I got to meet two awesome ladies, one happened to be UK Vlogger Fleur de Force. We chatted about the start of Fashion week and what shows we were covering. Fleur was flown out by MAC cosmetics and Morocco oil for events. We exchanged funny stories before grabbing a few front row seats.

When the runway show began, I quickly saw why the venue was packed. The clothes were beautiful and flowed effortlessly around the model’s quick strides. The light, neutral fabrics slightly graze the models form. I love the minimal details in each look, just a hint of embellishment. Very soft and feminine. From the collection alone, I am pretty certain this upcoming Spring I will be rocking a train of some sort.

New York Fashion Week Must Haves

New York Fashion Week Must haves

New York Fashion Week is here! Time to break out those heels, designer purses and cameras for an amazing week full of fashion. If you happen to see me during fashion week, I carry around a big purse. I have learned during  previous fashion weeks it is necessary to bring plenty of supplies. Because in the end, feet will hurt and nail polish will chip, and there won’t be much time to rest. These tiny accessories that you can throw into your bag will save you in the end!

New York Fashion Week Must Haves:

  1. Compeed! My best friend when it comes to heel protection. It lasts all day no and prevents blisters from wearing high heals.
  2. Bandaids. just in case you forgot Compeed, take a few bandaids for any other trouble areas shoes may cause.
  3. Nail polish remover wipes. The thing that bugs me more than no nail polish is chipped nail polish. I love these individual wipes that really do the trick.
  4. Bobby pins. It is amazing how you can easily transform your hair with a quick pin or two. Also helps keep flyaway strands in place.
  5. The number for closest beauty bar. There are plenty of stations and lounges around the city that will do touch up and hairdo for free. TRESemmé is one that will help a girl out with a quick hairdo. Just book an appointment before heading in.
  6. Chargers. Plenty of chargers for your phone and camera. Especially when you know it will be a long day.
  7. Change of shoes. Nothing feels better than when the last event ends and you can change into comfy shoes.
  8. Cards. Don’t forget to bring business cards for all the people you’ll meet.
