January Fab Finds Checklist: Leather Shorts, Snakeskin Booties, and Sequin Trim Joggers

The holiday shopping rush has ended but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t refresh our wardrobe.  How can we do this?  By selecting pieces that can be incorporated with items in your closet.

For example, Snakeskin Booties can be worn with an A-line Dress. Try a pair of Sequin Trim Joggers with a basic T-shirt.

Don’t forget to purge those items that no longer fit!  Purging old clothing pieces helps make room for new items without the clutter.  A few additional tips to refresh your wardrobe include:

  • Host a clothing swap
  • Sell clothing on sites such as Poshmark or eBay
  • Use Apps like Closet to plan your wardrobe
  • Add trendy accessories
  • Visit consignment shops

December Fab Finds Checklist: Embellished Dress, Teddy Bear Coat, and Patterned Tights

December is a time for beaded embellishments and cozy clothing pieces.  Let’s not forget about the Teddy Bear Coat trend that has made another appearance for the colder months.

Layering is the key to looking stylish and warm.  This can be done by wearing a hat, insulated boots, scarves, and thermal undergarments.  One example of layering with a street style flair can be seen by the last photo.  This particular Style Influencer wore bold sunglasses, faux fur jacket, and fishnet stockings with a pair of distressed jeans.

The fashion inspo photos below are a variation between high-fashion and street looks.

6 Reasons Why Gifting Your Boyfriend Makes You Feel Good

Holiday shopping can be stressful. But research has proven that there are benefits to giving. It’s not just beneficial to the recipient, but also for the giver. Engaging in these acts of kindness around the holidays can make us happier.

Think about it.

There’s something special about a fashion savvy woman giving her not-so fashionable boyfriend a piece of clothing during the holiday season. It shows that you care about him and you want him to wear something that you know he’ll look good in.

What would make you feel better? Purchasing him another pair of Doc Martens that he already owns? Or, seeing the surprise on his face when you give him a pair of men’s square toe cowboy boots? He’ll love the time you took into his gift.

Sharing your fashion sense with your boyfriend can be enriching to your relationship. Here are some ways that gift-giving during the holiday season can make us feel better than receiving gifts.

Lets You Live a Meaningful Life 

It’s always better to give than to receive during the holidays. Some believe it’s better to receive than to give, but that’s not always true. Happiest people aren’t those with the most money, but those who gave more than those who don’t. Even if you’re not rich, giving a Christmas gift makes you want to live a more meaningful life with your special someone.

Giving Makes You Feel More Fulfilled 

Giving can make anyone feel more fulfilled. It doesn’t matter if the gift is from a designer or comes with a hefty price tag. The point of the matter is that the gift comes from your heart. This gift is a token of your love and appreciation for your boyfriend. It’s a great way to strengthen your relationship, which brings us to the next reason…

Strengthens Your Relationship 

The whole reason for giving your boyfriend a Christmas is to show him how much he means to you. Giving a gift that’s as thoughtful as menswear he likes shows you appreciate having him in your life. Sure it sounds materialistic to buy him new clothes, but it’s possible to put meaning into the gift you give him.

One way you can do this is through personalization. This can be down by embroidering his initials into a silk tie or a cardigan sweater. Or, tuck a chain link watch into the pockets of his new coat. When you tailor a gift to his preferences, it reveals a lot about you.

Giving Is Good for Your Health

It turns out that giving is good for your health. Many research studies have shown that having a generous spirit leads to a longer life. According to a study at Stony Brook University, giving gifts to others have helped patients with chronic health problems such as HIV and multiple sclerosis. Those patients had a lower chance of dying over a five-year period than those who didn’t.

Giving Is Part of Your DNA

Humans are meant to give to each other. It’s instinctive in our human nature to take care of each other. Your generosity is the reason why you want to give your boyfriend a fashionable gift. If you were a selfish person, you would refuse to give him a thoughtful gift. But it’s not in our nature to think solely about ourselves.

Giving Makes You Happy

It’s simple: giving a gift just makes you feel good inside. According to a 2008 study conducted by the Harvard Business School staff, spending money on someone else rather than themselves makes them happier. These feel-good emotions are part of our biology. When people donate to charities, their mood improves. Scientists also believe these endorphins in the brain create the feeling called “helper’s high.”

Giving Displays Gratitude 

Giving your boyfriend a Christmas gift evokes the gratitude you have for him. You can practice this in your everyday life by showing him how much you appreciate him. Spend a few moments to express your gratitude to your boyfriend through your words or action. This will not only improve your mood but his as well. Cultivating gratitude will strengthen and reinforce your bond towards one another.

Whether you’re buying him a new pair of boots or a new coat, your gift is more than just something that’s fashionable. It can help you build a stronger connection and maintain your relationship. Don’t be surprised if you get a special Christmas gift yourself.

Dertbag, Shay Kawaii, H33M & Chicago Playground Showcase FW’18 Streetwear During New York Fashion Week

This past week at Cipriani, Dertbag, Shay Kawaii, H33M and Chicago Playground showcased their FW’18 collections during Style Fashion Week New York. While Style Fashion Week has been known for supporting established, emerging and international designers since their beginnings in 2011—this season during New York Fashion Week, they partnered with Papertrail Magazine in an effort to support the increasingly popular streetwear culture.

These young brands and designers, often the inspiration behind luxury giants, rarely make their way to the New York Fashion Week runway—operating under tight margins without corporate budgets to produce major runway shows. Style Fashion Week helps to share the cost of these major productions—providing designers the platform to display their work on the same level as their luxury competitors. Style Fashion Week recognizes that these designers are a vital piece of the fashion community and will continue to work to support them.

Sophisticated Socks from DeadSoxy and Street Style | #StaySoxy

Socks are considered the most under-stated fashion accessory. They’re normally tucked away in a hidden department next to the hosiery!

In the last few years, socks have made a huge comeback! They can be found in an array of designs and styles. For example, invisible socks can be worn with dress shoes and crew socks are for sporting activities.

DeadSoxy is an innovative shoe company that specializes in superior high quality socks.  Here’s why their socks are so amazing:

  • The Feel: Uber-soft, high-end yarn enables a cool and dry environment for your feet and means no shrinking
  • The Look: Superior dyes keep socks from fading and the distinct patterns give your outfit an extra dose of style
  • The Design: Engineered in a U.S. knitting mill to create a unique technical design that no other sock on the market has
  • The Magic: These technical specifications keep our socks, whether crew or no-show, from slipping or falling; so you get a comfortable wear & put-together look ALL day
  • The Deal: They are THE ONLY company ever to offer a money back guarantee if they slip off your foot.

Product Review:

DeadSoxy shipped a pair of invisible and crew socks. Upon opening the package I was skeptical but the quality of the socks speaks for themselves. Each pair had a unique design and fit nicely on my feet.

Street Style Trend: Socks and Heels

I like to wear high heels for various events but often leave with sore feet. By wearing a pair of crew (or invisible) socks this eliminated that issue. The Steele Woman sock is stated to match your fun personality and I actually like that mindset!

DeadSoxy has both men, women, and youth socks along with sophisticated accessories such as colored shoestrings.

Also, quick side note: if you’re searching for a bulk order of groomsmen socks, the company provides personalized packaging.
