Fringe Benefits

Fringe! Get it while it’s hot!

Last season we began to see fringe flying off clothing and handbags; some fashion industry experts predicted it would be a quickly fading trend. However, when designers like Chloe and Valentino strutted the tousled tassels on their runways, it was a sure sign of solidification.

The look is strong for fall and will be moving into spring 2016 as well.

The first picture is a beautiful, cognac leather Chloé bag. Yes, I lost sleep over this beauty. Damn!!! I want it now!!!

The next three bags are what we carry at Roadkill Ranch & Boutique.

The last picture is Valentino.

Look for fun colors and lots of ostentatious displays of fringe. And if a designer bag is too much of a commitment, go for something more affordable from Roadkill. The benefit? You’ll be representing the trend and still be able to pay your rent.

Stay Stylish,

Jules

Free to Fly

I woke up this morning and thought, “Hey!!! Whatever happened to my blog?” Then I realized it was here the whole time, I was the one who had flown away. I guess my wings had been broken for a while, but they’ve somehow found their way back to the blogging nest and are ready to soar! (Plus, my writing muscles could use some exercise.) I hope you all still love fashion, music and the arts. And birds!

This season it’s all about avian images perched on everything from jewelry to handbags to clothing. There’s just something about a sweet little bird print (or a gigantic brass statement brooch) that attracts attention. Maybe it’s because of their innocuous nature, or their ability to change views by taking off whenever they want? Once again, designers are drawing inspiration from our fancy-feathered friends this season.

The fist pic is Gucci. Need I say more?

The second pic is designer Franck Sorbier. I love this ethereal  gown complete with hand-beaded bodice details. It’s perfect for a Red Carpet appearance.

The third pic is Valentino. I just want to wear this dress around town. I seriously would too! I’d pair it with my Converse tennis shoes and a denim vest. LOL!

And the last three pics are a few of the things we have featured now at Roadkill Ranch & Boutique. This is a perfect example of how runway looks are translated into everyday life. A great blouse, a cool handbag or an exciting accessory  is all you need to represent the trend.

I hope everyone has a great day! And remember, the only person holding you back is you! So, fly high and dream big!

Get Laced

Do you want to know what’s hot now in the fashion world and trending into fall?

Lace!

Not only are designers using lace details, but they are also using head-to-toe lace outfits. Whether it be a solid lace pantsuit or a dress, or a simple camisole treated with lace, anything goes.

These are a few of my favorite designs from recent runway shows.

The first is a high-neck, lace blouse by Dolce & Gabbana. It adds a little mystery and sexiness to a day skirt.

The second picture is Roberto Cavalli. I love the textures and silhouettes of this ensemble. It’s the perfect mix of femininity and innocence infused with high style.

The third picture is Valentino. It’s dramatic and fierce, yet there’s a certain serious vibe about it.

The fourth picture is of Marc (Have I told you I love you?) Jacobs in an all-over lace outfit. I’m telling you, there’s nothing this man can do fashionably wrong in my eyes. Also, this picture was taken back in 2012, it just goes to show you how ahead of the trend he is. A true visionary!

So get laced! Add a little lace top to your boyfriend jeans, or take a lace dress and pair it with summer sandals. Look for colored lace and lace detailing on skirts, jackets, shoes and handbags.

111 Years of Extraordinary!

Bergdorf Goodman is celebrating 111 years in business. Why celebrate 111 and not 100? According to the store, the 111 year milestone properly conveys “Bergdorf’s being one store in one city, providing one singular luxury experience.”  And rightfully so! The store drips with the best designer goods, a splendorous interior and impeccable customer service.

In celebration of their significance, the window displays were dressed with 12 outfits that depict fashion since 1901. On top of that, the 12 displays were all made out of paper by New York artists Mark Gagnon and Samantha Smith. UH- MAY- ZING!!!

Over 100 designers including: Oscar de la Renta, Jimmy Choo and Valentino, have created exclusive anniversary collections. The designer shoe pictured above is an exclusive by Charlotte Olympia.

I stood by the glass case and drooled over the lavender wedge with its intricately-stitched shopping scene. Then I vacillated over the thought of taking a photo or leaving with just a mental image. I didn’t want to risk the chance of being reprimanded by the staff for unauthorized  photos, but when I glanced over at the display of stacked books titled “Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf Goodman”, I pulled out my Canon Rebel and clicked.

I figured life is too short to not take risks, and if I was going to get myself in trouble in NYC, it best be at the distinguished “first family of fashion’s” glorious establishment. Luck was on my side, I got the shot, and I left  thinking that I too would like to have my ashes scattered over BG.
