Style Ahead Of The Curve With Sears Fall Preview #ThisIsStyle

April 3rd, 2014 by Christen Rochon

This week, Sears hosted a Fall Preview of the latest trends, styles and collaborations of the Seventeen, Kardashian Kollection, Bongo and more.   I love getting a sneak peek and Fall styles early, but I love it even more when I can spot seasonal styles and trends that I can find now and wear all year long!

Sears Fall Preview #SearStyle

This mixed material moto jacket from the Seventeen collection is chic for any look all year long.

If you’re a girl who’s always on the go Sears Style fashions from the Kardashian Kollection or Metaphor are the perfect option for who want to dress in trendy and popular styles. When you’re sporting the latest threads from brands who understand your style, you’re sure to look and feel amazing. At Sears, you can find the hottest trends in the colors you love, so you’ll be ready for anything.

Wool mixed textured coat by Metaphor available at Sears this Fall.

Take this conservative Kardashian Kollection moment for a spin now.  Why wait for fall?  The midriff exposing trend with a pencil skirt only works with modest skin exposure but this look is so hot that you can grab similar separates and take them for a spin this Spring.

This is one Kim Kardashian look that I whole-heartedly approve!

Femininity at it’s finest. Pastels and lace aren’t just for Spring and Fall, it’s a look you can wear all year long.

The beauty about many of the Sears Style trends and fashions spotted at the Fall preview is that you don’t have to wait until later this year to find them online and in stores.  Many of the items will be available and can ship as early as later this month.  That’s a stylish solution that’ll keep your closet chic and trendy for seasons to come.

In case you want to find what’s hot and what’s now, Sears has you covered with a curated selection of the latest styles and trends all in one place.  Now + Here. A contemporary shop found in stores and online, it’s currently stocked with every must on our list: graphic tees, jumpsuits, boyfriend jeans, maxis, bombers, skinnies and that’s just the start of it. You can begin shopping them all in preparation for warm weather—and before they expire. But hurry, cause once it’s gone – it’s GONE!

New York Fashion Week Goes Social With Rebecca Minkoff Snapchat Sneek Peek

September 5th, 2013 by Christen Rochon

With designers in search of new ways to make collections generate fashion week buzz, many of them resort to social media as the “go to” for the masses.  For its Spring/Summer 2012 show, Burberry decided to debut its collection via Twitter, sending the brand’s name to Twitter’s list of global trending topics at the time. Just last week, it was announced that Carolina Herrera has launched her first social media contest to boost awareness of her bridal line.  It’s no longer show attendees that get the first glance at fashion week looks — this season, for Rebecca Minkoff fans at least, that honor falls to the users of Snapchat.  Now with the power of social media, Rebecca Minkoff has solicited the power of the Snapchat app to debut her Spring 2014 collection moments before they appear on the runway.

 

Rebecca Minkoff Snapchat

 

Snapchat is a two-year old iPhone and Android app that allows users to send messages, photos and videos that automatically self-destruct seconds after they’re viewed.  Sharing sneek peeks of the Spring 2014 collection allows fans to experience the star fashions of the shows even before most editors and show-goers can.  The Rebecca Minkoff team believes  that fashion week involves the consumer just as much as it does the designers, editors and buyers.  Uri Minkoff, the CEO of Rebecca Minkoff says, “We believe in a different approach. We believe the consumer is part of [fashion week], and that their inclusion is going to grow. The consumer has a voice and say in [our] brand, they should get special perks even if they can’t attend the show.”

Are you keeping up with the New York Fashion Week excitement from the comfort of your computer screen?  Check out all the runway shows in it’s entirety here.

Will you be following the Rebecca Minkoff releases on Snapchat?  We’ll be sure to post some of the exclusive sneek peeks via Instagram for your New York Fashion Week enjoyment.

Get In The Game, Know What To Wear #NFLAllClear

August 28th, 2013 by Christen Rochon

Recently I had the pleasure of being invited to  Vogue’s Fashion x Football event in New York City and it got me to thinking about how to score a touchdown with my own fashion flair while attending the games this season.  In case you didn’t know, there are new rules when it comes to fashion accessories at the games this year and it has many fashionistas in an uproar.  The new NFL All Clear policy prohibits camera bags, coolers, luggage or large totes of any kind within any NFL football games.  In an effort to keep fans safe, the NFL encourages fans to not bring any type of bags at all – but they’ve made a few concessions with the women in mind.  So what does that mean for female fans?  We’re limited to what type and size bags we can bring into the stadium, but that shouldn’t prohibit our stylish options at all.

 header_image_v4_1371166925

This year, I plan on attending a hometown tradition of Thanksgiving with a side of Detroit Lions football.  Lucky for me, I won’t have to travel far for a stylish ensemble that’s stadium appropriate.  With the NFL All clear policy, I’ve been prompted to invest in a clear envelope clutch purse (since it falls within the guidelines of permissible bags) and bring along only the necessities needed i.e lipstick, credit cards, ID & cash.  For a complete list of permissible bags visit http://www.nfl.com/allclear.  I created a unique sporty look completely inspired by the clear bag which includes a striped Golden Goose three quarter sleeve t-shirt from FarFetch.com, Von Vonni Maxi dress (which happens to be on sale) and Roxy gray wedge shoes along side tons of adorable accessories including a Michael Kors sports watch.  Check out this collection and share how you plan on accessorizing for the NFL All Clear season.

Samsung x Alexander Wang Collaborate To Benefit Art Start New York

August 26th, 2013 by Christen Rochon

When functional style meets creative design, that’s a recipe for stylish success!  Samsung, a global leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies, and New York-based designer Alexander Wang revealed the finished product following months of collaboration with some of the industry’s most creative contributors. The limited-edition Alexander Wang Wallie gym sack is the first co-created bag inspired by crowd-sourced sketches and images created using the GALAXY Note II.

Samsung x Alexander Wang

Alexander Wang resourced the ‘collective inspiration’ of a select group of Samsung smartphone users for his latest collection. Called the ‘Wallie’, the gym sac has a drawstring closure, reinforced leather corners, and a black and gray print on the lambskin finish.?  The bag’s abstract print was produced by Wang by combining different images (photos, doodles, patterns) created using Samsung’s Galaxy Note II smartphones by a group of his close friends, stylists, photographers, and others.

Samsung x Alexander Wang

“The abstract print really captures the energy of New York City,” the designer explained. “This collaboration is a great example of how technology and style can come together in an unexpected but really meaningful way.”  The bag will go on sale this August The bag is available in select locations from this month, and proceeds from the sale of the $550 bag will go towards the Art Start charity, that uses the arts to nurture the creative talents of at-risk children and youth.
