Wearing the Blues

I love seeing all of the color popping up on my Pinterest street style feed. People are finding new, eclectic ways of combining color and pattern. Even shoes are taking on bright hues and odd shapes. Here is a way to make the love of bright colors suitable for the office.

Ancient silhouette

There is so much confusion as to what the word “tunic” actually describes. It started in the Roman Empire in the 3rd century BC. A Roman tunic was used as an under garment for a toga or just a long shirt for the lower classes. The word evolved with history, and it ended up describing a shirt, layering piece, and a dress. Different class identifications were associated with it as civilizations came and went.

Stitches of the past

When people hear the word “vintage”, there are thoughts that link to it. People often think of hipsters or old musty clothing. I wear vintage 4 out of the 7 days of the week, and most of my outfits lean toward the modern look. It’s not about the individual piece, it’s how you style it.

Wearing a head-to-toe look from your favorite brand or store always gives you an extra boost of confidence. This white ensemble is from my favorite store, Mercy Vintage in Oakland, CA.

Shoulder Pad Wonders

Working in the fashion industry calls for you to have a staple. Grace Coddington has her gorgeous red hair, Anna Wintour’s black sunglasses will never be forgotten, and Danielle Bernstein’s minimalist yet intricate vibe is copied world wide. When I realized mine is a shoulder-padded blazer paired with sunnies, I couldn’t have been happier.
