Erdem Inspired

Melody was influenced by Erdem's Resort collection this year, but upon further reflection, forgot how she was influenced by it. In her head she remembered blue and tighter floral print. So here is some tighter floral print mixed with blue. You can view some of the Erdem collection here and here. We love tight floral prints and will definitely be on the look out for more. We especially loved how Erdem mixed tight prints with other tights prints in the same color family. Very cool. But yes this takes some skill, so we'll just stick to pairing ours with a solid. Blouse, Prabal Gurung for Target, skirt Forever21.

Eclectic Mix - Street Style

In preparation for some spring and summer street style, we are giving you some of the last of our shots from September's Spring fashion week. We thought this was an interesting mix. Definitely eclectic. Although we wouldn't think to wear something like this, we do see how one person's style can be totally different than another.;She also looks like a Jennifer Aniston look-alike. Don't you think?

Spring Neutrals

With the onslaught of Spring comes a bit of chilly wind and rain. Although we didn't have rain, we did have some intense wind the day we shot this. These days are exactly when you want a good trench coat. We both own trench coats and we both know that we will be using them for the rest of our lives. When an article of clothing has been classic for so long, you can guess we both will spend a little more money to make sure this piece is in our closets. Our jackets are from Banana Republic and J. Crew (you can find similar here). Although Melody felt a tad guilty one year when her husband gave this to her for christmas (the words, 'oh babes, this is kind of expensive' were some of her first), you can bet she has worn it every spring and fall since she got it. Oh and the rest of the outfit is Zara. Keep the color pallet light and airy and people will feel like Spring just walked through the door.

Beautiful Celine

Here is the last preview from us for Fall 2013. We referred to this collection from Celine in the hitchcock post, but we have to admit, this was one of our favorite collections of the season. Such clean and simple lines, yet completely sophisticated and modern-looking. We loved the use of over-sized coats (think the 60's) and the trumpet skirt silhouette. One of our favorite looks is the bigger chunky-knit sweater paired with the knee length trumpet skirt. Definitely inspired. We may have to bring these fall silhouettes into our Spring transition outfits. So nice. And who would've thought the peplum with the trumpet would be so pretty?

Pleats and Leather

As we've mentioned earlier, we're glad midi skirts are here to stay for a bit. This is a vintage pleated piece that Desirae has chosen to pair with her black leather jacket. The look sort of  reminds us of Zina's chiffon pleats and leather pairing here. So don't be afraid to take the preppy pleat and button down and pair it with some leather to make it more edgy. The prep/edge concept also takes place here with Alexa Chung's look.

Happy Spring!

Happy Spring everyone! This was taken from yesterday's festivities. We feel this is kind of the essence of the holiday (although in a very secular sense). Funny enough, we didn't take any outfit posts. Just took a much needed break (the music side of our lives is killing us off slowly).  Hopefully your day was as warm and sunny as ours! (oh and why don't they make this little DKNY dress in our size?)
