Friday was a big day in the history of fashion. One of the most iconic designers and his label celebrated their 50th anniversary. Yes, we’re talking about the all-American fashion guru Ralph Lauren, who’s been taking care of your style for half a century. This is such a huge milestone, that the designer decided to celebrate it in the most opulent possible way.
The future is sustainable! after years of being judged for their decisions, Burberry finally has some good news. Ever since Riccardo Tisci took over the throne at the luxury British house, he’s been all about positive change. The latest from the label is their announcement that they will be no longer using fur in their collections. They also addressed another very important matter- the fact that Burberry has constantly been burning unsold merchandise. Starting with Tisci’s debut line, both issues from above will not be happening anymore.
Fringe is making it’s grand fashion entrance into fall collections. We saw a preview of what’s to come on the runways during the fashion weeks that took place this spring. Now, we get to finally get our hands on some of these fantastic fringe pieces. From dresses, to coats, and accessories. We have sourced out some of the best fringe pieces available for early fall for you to grab now.
I am such a sucker for lamé. I have sound myself spending hours at a time on Etsy browsing through page after page of vintage pieces to find the perfect ones. Some of the best pieces are vintage, and if you’re in luck, they are still in good shape. Luckily, it has been a more popular sight in the modern fashion world and Missoni has put out some pretty lust-worthy pieces. I took my selected Missoni knit lamé skirt and went the 70’s route (duh), pairing it with a metallic, dramatic, bell sleeved bodysuit, metallic fuchsia boots, and some oversized round sunnies. You can create this look for yourself with the same pieces, and of course some variations. Shop below!
If you follow street style at all, then the kimono and jeans look is no stranger to your eyes. Two very versatile things paired together make for a fun outfit. I got on a kimono kick last year and may have purchased a few too many since, but they are so beautiful and all so different, it’s hard to say no. I score my pieces at vintage stores, vintage clothing conventions, and flea markets, but Etsy has the mother load. You can spend days looking through kimonos that range in all sizes, years, and prices ($45-$3,000+) to be exact. I wear mine mostly with jeans, but they are great over a slip dress, or of course asa house robe. Below you can shop a few of my favorite kimono/jean combos and also these fun 50’s metal weave basket handbags.
This combo screams spring with it’s bold floral patterns and light colored jeans.

Jumpsuits are pretty much a good idea any time of the year. It literally takes half of the effort out of putting together an outfit, and when you are pinched for time, or just don’t want to put too much thought into what to wear, a jumpsuit can be a fashion hero. Another bonus is that most of them are pretty comfy and you can dress them up down, or whichever way you are feeling. I have a section of my closet dedicated to jumpsuits, I have super comfy and casual ones, super dressy ones, and then some that are somewhere in between. This look is focusing in on jumpsuits that are flooding the instagram pages of fashion bloggers. Summer friendly ones that have all the cuteness.
I chose a linen blend jumpsuit with red stripes. It was one of those, “I can’t believe this is just $30.00!” finds. I love red, but I don’t wear it as much as I would like, so I went all out and complimented the jumpsuit with red accessories as well.

One of my favorite spring styles is the dark romance style. It’s channeling so many of my favorite people and things. A little goth, contradicted with a little innocence, Saint Laurent, meets Stevie Nicks, bohemian meets western. There are plenty of ways you can describe this kind of look, but it certainly has a romantic vibe to it, and I love the natural-looking effortlessness of it, and how feminine and pretty it makes me feel. While shooting this look, I actually spun and danced around in circles singing “Rhiannon”. So maybe if you are planning to attend a music festival this Spring or Summer, this is a great look for that as well! I got a very similar dress in white as well and will for sure be wearing one of the two to a festival. Below you can shop my look along with pieces of a similar vibe to customize your own dark romantic look.
My Look: I paired this super affordable black maxi dress with these beautiful, drool-worthy Chloe boots that I couldn’t love without. I have been looking for a good pair of summer-friendly boots like this for literally a couple of years, and had no luck. Then I saw these beauties last month and was at Chloe later that day ordering my pair. They are a perfect fit for any bohemian babe look, but also can cross over into a rock-n-roll vibe, western vibe, or just a casual California girl jeans and t-shirt look. I threw on one of my “oldie but goodie” fedora hats that I customized with some satin fabric, and then finished the look with some vintage jewelry that I found at various places such at Etsy and flea markets.
