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?

How to Layer Summer Pieces for Winter Fashion

January is coming to an end but the winter chill is still lingering around. Cara Kovacs of The Stylephile helps us spice up our winter wardrobe by layering our favorite summer pieces. I was raised in Florida, so winter fashion is sort of an acquired skill for me. However, I love accessorizing and mixing styles, and winter is one of the best seasons to do this. Layering is the key to playing with winter style. Warm weather accessories are so much more varied than in other times of the year. Scarves, gloves, and hats are just the beginning. I love playing with pairing sweaters with vests or button downs, and tights or chunky socks with booties and knee-highs. This look is a perfect example of that. Most people think they have to pack their mini skirts away all season long, but where’s the fun in that? I wanted to challenge myself to stay toasty in a short skirt by adding warm sweaters, and my favorite vintage coat. Then, my favorite part, of piling on accessories let …


Marie Mag; A New Kind of Winter Fashion

We’re back with another winter style special! Let’s take some tips from Candace Marie of Marie Mag and ditch those dark winter hues and wrap up in a bold sleek outerwear. My style has evolved over the years and as I have become more aware of who I am, my outside appearance has reflected that wholeheartedly.  For the winter I picked out pieces with bold colors and prints like my coats. I tend to gravitate towards winter fashion that makes a bold statement.  This boxy yet sleek vintage wool coat caught my eye while thrifting and I knew immediately that I would need this piece for my closet. Underneath my coat I kept it simple with a pair of skinny 7 Jeans and an Urban Outfitters stripped shirt top.  To reflect the masculine feel of the coat I added a pair of Aldo Sneakers to the mix.

No Wrapping Needed; A New Scarf Twist

We’re kicking off the new year with a cozy and seasonal blogger collaboration! First up is Van Le of Forevervanny who gives us a twist on a winter staple piece. Whilst flipping through J.Crew’s catalogs from a couple of months back, I came across this method of scarf tucking. It was a sort of new and different way of wearing a scarf at first, but something that totally made sense to me right away. With the amount of scarves that I own, I can speak from experience that no matter what method you tie your scarf with, this one will take you the least amount of time, and provide you the most warmth — basically, you just put on your scarf before you throw that oversized sweater on and that’s it. When it comes to plaid and color block scarves, it’s ideal to showcase them over your ensemble, however, with so many basic solid color scarves in my personal closet, I’m convinced that this is the way for them to be worn. I love that they …


To Heel Or Not To Heel

Everyone wants to look like they put some effort into their appearance whether going to school, work or a girl’s night out. More often than not, I see young women walking around in painful six inch heels that they end up holding towards the end of the night. I firmly believe you can look glam and put together, and be comfortable at the same time. Here are 4 tips for those of you who don’t want to sacrifice comfort or style. Accessorizing with jewelry is a great way to express your personal style. However, you don’t want to have too many focal points in your outfit. If you’re wearing a statement necklace AND bedazzled heels, it can look overdone. Pick one, not both. You can still wear heels and be comfortable. However, choose a heel that’s 3-4 inches or less. Wedges, like the one below, are a great option because they give a lot of support. So for those of you who are asking, “To heel or not to heel?” You can definitely heel. If …


Fashion Bloggers; It’s More Than Style

It’s time to get a new perspective on your thoughts of fashion bloggers. Jeanne Grey, of the chic blog Grey Layers, put to work her savvy business skills and brought together a team of philanthropist style bloggers. Stepping off the runway of Orchard Street in New York City, I was greeted to yet another showroom of trendsetters at Reed Space for the “Shop Our Closet” event. This style affair donated 20% of its proceeds to the American Cancer Society. Grey, alongside Eliezer Infante, Jamal Jackson, Candice Stewart, and Joel Moore gathered their favorite pieces from their closet for a great cause. It seems almost everyone is a blogger these days and who can blame anyone for showing off his or her style when it’s so easy to become your own media. This gang shows us how they are more than what they wear. The whole mindset about bloggers [is that they] are always about “themselves,” where as this shows more of who we really are,” mentions Grey. These young philanthropists wanted to make a statement about …
