Going Vogue. Living Vogue. Being Vogue.

As a 16 year old living outside of Washington, D.C., I am eager to express myself in a world of emerging fashion and conservative style. “Over the years I have learned that what is important in a dress is the woman who is wearing it.” – Yves Saint Laurent

Closet Essentials

Style essentials are the building blocks of a solid and functional style–they are classic pieces and trend-proof garments. These essentials are staples that are both basic and versatile. Here is a list of what I think solidifies a wardrobe. 1. The Little Black Dress feminine, yet classy. it can be worn to virtually any occasion, although, the best part about the LBD: with the addition of different accessorite, it can look like an entirely new and different outfit.

2. Camel Trench Coat i have always found that neutral hues are the foundation of creating a classic wardrobe. this wear-with-all piece can be worn from day to night. it will always look stylish, yet never fall out of style.

3. Straight Leg Dark Wash Denim dark navy jeans go with absolutely everything. for a day look wear it with a cami, cardigan, and flats. for a night look wear pumps, fancy top, and a blazer.

4. White Blouse there is nothing more versatile as a white button down blouse; however, it is essential that it fits properly. When worn  in the workplace, it can give you a polished professional look, yet it can also be paired down by rolling up the sleeves and throwing it over a pair of skinnies.

5. Opaque Black Tights the most classic of accessories that can easily be thrown under your favorite frock to totally transform the look, taking it to an entirely different level.

6. Timeless Cardigan in a fabric like cashmere or wool, the timeless cardigan will wear perfect over everything from a simple tank to the aforementioned blouse. modernize it by investing in a cardigan with embellishments or gold buttons.

7. Black Pumps
one essential that is not to be skimped on. a nice pair of black pumps can be a sound investment–whether you wear them to work or out for a night on the town, a pair of black pumps will forever be a useful wardrobe staple.

8. Ballet Flats an item that every woman should own. whether you plan to sport them day-to-day, or simply wear them to take a break from stilettos, from age nine to ninety-nine, ballet flats are a definite staple for all females.

9. Walking Boots every great wardrobe has a quality pair of boots–they can be worn with jeans, skirts, and can even be used to pair down a dress (see Riding Boots)

10. Basic V-Neck Tee a v-neck tee, especially a white one, should be an absolute must in anybody’s closet–it can be easily dressed up or down, not to mention, it is simple to style and accessorize.

Trend Report

This is by far one of my favorite trends this winter! I noticed it after I picked up these Tory Burch ‘Pyrite’ colored flats. I love this effortless trend that can either stand out or blend right in depending on how you wear it! What are your thoughts  on this metallic matte trend?

Trend Report

On a recent outing to the mall, I picked up on an upcoming trend: coated denim. It is a new and interesting concept, which gives the denim a rough, leathery look and makes them feel as if they are coated in wax. The coating is done using pigment, acrylic or polyurethane coating. Pigment coating provides the denim a new look and experience after every wash. However, acrylic and polyurethane  act as a transparent coating, which protects the fading properties. It also gives the fabric a protective breathable layer with stain resistant properties. The luster and feel of the fabric are also improved.  What are your thoughts on this new trend?
