The Fashion Guitar: Real Talk with Charlotte Groeneveld

We love a candid talk here at YHM and Charlotte Groeneveld of the popular travel and style blog, The Fashion Guitar, opens up about her ever budding business and the “real-factor” of being a social influencer. Since 2010, Groeneveld has digitally captured her lifestyle and her 485k+ social followers have taken a personal ride with the blogger turned fashion designer and so much more. Her Donsje Amsterdam and Fab. By Fabienne fashion collections are just two of the many highlights Groeneveld has shared with us all. She admits the design world was not for her, but doesn’t rule it out completely. What’s her dream collaboration? “I’m living my dream right now!” YHM Magazine: You’re originally from The Netherlands, but you lived in other major fashion areas. What are some of the fashion differences of living in New York City and London versus back home? Charlotte Groeneveld: Biggest difference is that in London and New York fashion actually lives. People do dress in the latest collections, and there are more fashionable women out there than I …


Eda Semana; The California, Leather-and-Denim-loving, Grungy Hippie.

We are California dreaming with one of our favorite new style influencers. Eda Semana, of Luxe & Linen, began her college career like so many young people – full of hope, but conflicted about the right path to take to be successful. She revealed that her grades suffered while pursuing a major she found no joy in. However, her quirky meets chic blog helped her redeem her creative roots. “My most memorable moment [in fashion] was when I attended my first show for MBFW at the Lincoln Center in New York City. I walked in in complete awe admiring the entire venue and found myself surrounded by so many like-minded and inspiring people. From then on, I knew that this industry and this world was where I wanted to be,” explains Semana. We dug a little deeper to get to know this West Coast babe after frequently obsessing over her Instagram feed. YHM: What is one of your most memorable fashion try? What would you change? ES: In high school, everyone has their own style phases: …


Let It Be Worn: Cherry On Top

New York Fashion Week is all about fashion—from the runway to straight-up street style. We braved the brisk air of February’s runway early this year, and bumped into the stylish Monica Krystel Rose, of Let It Be Worn. This lovely lady is the last in our fashion blogger collaboration line-up and her look is a blend of minimalism and sass. Oh, how I love fall! It’s the perfect weather to still wear my summer favorites and make them better with warmer layers & accessories. With this look, I skipped the layering and went for a long sleeve maxi dress with an asymmetric neckline, and an up-to-there thigh high slit. It’s a basic dress with sassy details. I even wore it to a wedding once! To keep the look from being too feisty, I chose to wear my classic Adidas shell tops. Not only are they comfortable, they make any outfit a little bit cooler. I think comfort is the key to confidence in any outfit. I added a fun element by wearing a bright red Panama hat, the …


Glam by Moni: Rebel Yell

It’s almost the end of September, which means it’s almost time for leather jacket season! Mônica Hill of Glam by Moni is rocking out in a vintage fall look and we can’t help ourselves. Now is the time to gear up on a few ripped denim pieces, leather jackets, and your favorite vintage band tees. The Brazilian native blogger talks how this current runway trend is making its way into casual street wear. It’s Monica from Glam by Moni here! Today, I want to share the outfit that I believe is a staple in every girl’s wardrobe this fall – the rebel yell look. I am a huge lover of leather jackets and everything related to the punk rock look. I was very excited to see that my favorite designers (from Marc Jacobs to Alexander Wang) decided to go with a dark Goth look for their fall/winter collection. Think everything from leather to ripped tights, studs, and chains—your inner rocker’s dream!   So let me talk a little bit about my outfit choice. For jeans, I picked the Frame Denim in distressed black. Black denim is a staple …


Julia Fashionista: The Perfect Transition

It’s time for another fall style inspiration from our latest blogger collaboration. Up next is Julia of Julia Fashionista. Her tip for a fun summer to fall style transition: midi-skirts paired with chic sweaters. This style brings casual and trendy together in an effortless way. Autumn, a season of great wonders. Not only is Mother Nature making itself pretty and ready for winter, but it is also the season where you can still show some skin while looking stylish in your new sweaters! I love the skirt and sweater combo as it is the best style transition before winter. It keeps you warm yet it makes you look elegant. The sweater is casual while the skirt dresses up your look. The perfect contrast! Midi-skirts can be tough to style as they are very ladylike, but by pairing it with a girlie sweater, it makes the look more playful without being overpowering. The skirt and sweater combination is good for any occasion and the styling possibilities are endless. Try a mini skirt with an over-sized sweater or …


The Petite Principle: Falling for Stripes

Maia of The Petite Principle is daring you to keep your summer dresses stocked and ready to go for a total fun autumn wardrobe. She is second in line for our blogger collaboration and is not letting the cold months damp her style. Check out her summer to fall fashion guide. I’ve said this so many times but I’ll happily say it again. Fall is my favorite season! The fall foliage, the crisp weather, and the best season for fashion. As we head into fall, I’m going to take any chance I can to wear a striped mini-dress. It might not be completely practical for the cooler months but it can easily be paired with some embroidered tights or over the knee boots, like these grey suede ones that I’m obsessed with. The mini-dress is perfect for any petite gal (and tall gals alike), and it’s a fun way to incorporate a summer piece into a fall look. This one will easily remain a staple in my fall wardrobe and it goes so well with a longer cardigan, an …
