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.

Summer calls upon colorful, cool silhouettes, and I’m quite taken with pastel at the moment. I have never imagined that pastels could feel so chic, but the pretty tones have been spotted on the runways at Phillip Lim and Louis Vuitton. The soft hues are feeling much more fashion-friendly — especially when you consider the latest looks from our favorite style setters. In gorgeous mint greens, pale blues, and muted pinks, the fashion crowd is quickly making a case to embrace the fresh hues on, well, practically anything.

Trend Report: Spring 2012

This spring is all about bright colors, especially yellow! This isn’t the easiest trend to embrace, so if you’re not comfortable donning a yellow frock, then try a more subtle pop of color, such as a yellow bracelet! There is no need go overboard with this trend, one or two yellow pieces is all you need!

This is by far one of my favorite trends of the season. It leaves me reminiscent of Chanel chic. The trend can’t be ignored, as we’ve seen it from designers like Christian Louboutin to Sam Edelman on heels, to flats, to boots. This is one of the most classic, safe trends we’ve seen so far, so it’s worth splurging on those Ferragamo flats that will never go out of style! As long as Chanel is in style, so will this classic trend.

Think Pink for October

In honor if brest cancer awarness, I decided to make a post about how to incorporate pink into your October wardrobe. These fun items are sure to break up the gloominess of fall. If you want to go for a subtle pop, try the nail polish or rainboots. If you are looking to make a bold statemet, then the hot pink J.Brands are right for you!

Trend Report: The Perfect Transition

It’s always hard to dress in between seasons. Labor Day has passed, but it’s not quite time to break out the dowdy fall colors. Scarves make the perfect transition accessory. A bold scarf can liven an outfit and can be paired with shorts or long pants. Try shorts, a solid color long sleeve shirt, with the perfect light weight scarf to break things up! Scarves have been all the rage and  they can be used various ways – the most practical and versatile of all accessories!
