love this time of year! Fall is the perfect time to darken up your wardrobe with bolder darker colors and of course layers!! Add some of our favorite new kimonos, boho cardigans, and sweaters. Let the new month and season also be the time to try something new in your day-to-day looks…I’ve been trying to be a little more daring with prints. You’ll be surprised that you CAN where 2 different prints together and there’s subtle ways to do it. Something I tried today was mixing a tribal print long maxi with a different tribal print kimono, something I would have never done but was pleasantly surprised when the 2 looked beautiful together…the outfit looked more thoughtful and relaxed all at the same time. I challenge you to step out of your comfort zone and try something new for fall.

august clothing

August is a time to slowly transition your closet from summer to fall. Lucky for us that San Diego fall means we can still wear our favorite shorts and tank but we can add our favorite new fall cardigan or kimono for a little extra layering. A new season doesn’t mean brand new wardrobe…fall simply reminds us to add a couple of warmer essentials like a great pair of pants, jeans, an oversized sweater, or everyone’s favorite…a great pair of BOOTS!! Because I’m a huge fan of layering, fall is the perfect time of year wear I can experiment with pairing all different types of patterns and materials into one look.

Don’t forget to visit one of our locations for weekly arrivals.

Summer’s here and what we love about summer is being able to wear easy and light items that are perfect for the hot sun. Hot trends for the summer are maxi skirts and dresses and we have many colors and patterns available in our stores. We love how maxi’s are comfortable and versatile enough to wear for everyday events like going to the beach but can also be worn for more formal events like weddings etc…

It’s May and like always, we’re not afraid of color, patterns, and textures. Here’s a few great tips to add some color, patterns, and textures in your closet. Freshen up your look, revamp your style without loosing who YOU are.

Step outside your comfort zone

I love when a customer approaches me and asks for my help in helping her put an outfit together. Often times it’s for a specific event like a night out, wedding, or graduation, but sometimes, it’s just helping her revamp her wardrobe and adding pieces that would work for her day to day needs. Not only is it a chance for me to help her step out of her normal comfort zone, it’s a chance for me to listen and understand what our customers needs and wants are. What I hear a lot is, “I would have never thought of that.” After working with a customer, she’s often surprised at my choices for color combos and my advice on mixing patterns. Try something new, you may be pleasantly surprised.

Try a different size

If you try something and it’s not working, it may not be the item itself, it may be the size. Customers often make the mistake of trying on something too small, they don’t realize that something too small can be uncomfortable and unflattering. Let the focus be YOU instead of the clothes. Draw people’s attention on how beautiful you are and not how unflattering something is. All companies and manufactures work with different sizing and fit techniques. Because there isn’t a standard in sizing, you may be a small in one brand but a large in another. Explore different sizes to find the fit that works right for you and your body.

Mix up textures

Just like patterns and colors, you CAN mix textures in 1 outfit. Rayon, cotton, chiffon, and satin can all find a place in your outfit. When you stick to 1 fabric choice, the outfit can look too calculated. You want your look to look like you put it together with ease. Being too match-matchy with colors and textures can look too predictable and boring.
