Opposites Day

January 25th is National Opposites Day! In honor of this fun one-off holiday, we decided to do a little photo shoot in our brand new office.

The theme was to showcase one outfit (work AND girls night out appropriate) worn with three completely opposite shoes.

You can never go wrong with a little black on black leather action! Which style is your favorite?

From left to right: Emry sneakers, Marielos sandals and Estelle heels.

Drinking + cocktailing

Picture this—you walk into a trendy-chic bar downtown. You grab a menu, and can’t help but be intrigued by the fun mix of organic drink garnishes, and a list of ingredients you can hardly pronounce. For years, bartenders have been taking little pieces of gourmet flair and adding them to specialty drink menus. Now, it’s the chef’s turn to take a little something from the bar!

Cocktail-infused baking has been around for quite some time, though many have yet to catch onto this style of cooking. Chef’s have been adding wines and spirits to dishes for years; and even some classic favorites have a little extra in them. Think about your heavy-handed Aunt pouring Sherry into the pasta sauce. It just makes sense! When you think about it, mixology is a lot like baking; bringing out subtle flavoring while keeping the tastes cohesive. That’s why these two pair so well together.

The combination of liquor and baked goods hasn’t reached commercial success quite yet, but we’d like to think a renaissance of tipsy treats will be fast approaching! Whip out your pretty pink apron and pumps, and whip up some treats for your next adult-only party! This one is sure to lift your spirits!

Neutrals 2

As fahionista’s, we’re always searching for the new, hottest trends that are grazing fashion covers and blog sites everywhere. We won’t get caught dead wearing white after Labor Day or peep-toe pumps in winter. But what about the classic trends like pastels and florals that seem to be missed? Or my all-time favorite—neutrals! These are almost always the perfect go-to for a trendy night out, depending on the season.

Personally, I wear neutrals year-long because it grants such a luxe and simple look. Not to mention the fact that you can rock these swatches any season—day or night. But it can be difficult to remain neutral in such a bold world where everyone is fighting to stand out.  I am here to tell you, you can still own a room in your chic shades!

The greatest thing about neutral colors is they all pair very nicely together. I usually like to mix and match the warmer colors like tan and camel with the off-whites and cream colors. With camel being such a big color this season, you can almost find it in every variation. You usually can get a little cray with your lip color or opt for a printed neutral bag to bring a new flare to your neutrals. Trust me, you’ll never have a dull moment again! Here’s a little outfit inspiration for your next night out.
