The Louis Reign brings you navy, white, and a dash of vintage blue

Summer calls for bright colors, winter calls for dark colors, and fall calls for a mix. Sometimes finding the perfect fall color balance is a challenge, but Christine of Louis Reign has autumn style on lock as she posed for our 2017 Blogger Look Book, again. Our look book features Christine in a fun ensemble from head-to-toe. She pairs a turtleneck, no-sleeved top with long navy, pinstriped pants. She finishes the outfit with a jacket, a golden watch, a cross body pocketbook, and black leather ankle boots. Perfect for the changing weather of fall! This season each day’s weather forecast is a surprise, one day it is hot one day it is cold. This outfit is versatile. Just take off the jacket, and the outfit still works for a warmer fall day. Switch out the jacket for a blazer and head over to your next business meeting. Have a short amount of time to get prepared for a night out? Swap the ankle boots for stilettos, and you are ready to go! This look is like a chameleon; it is …

Vinyl Revival: Return of the Record Player

When was the last time you bought a CD? After the advent of streaming programs like Spotify.com or Pandora.com, can you even remember the last time you downloaded an album? It’s no secret CD sales have been steadily declining, even long before people started downloading or streaming music, and it doesn’t look like things are going to get any better for the compact disc industry. Digital ownership has quickly become the norm for music lovers. However, there’s one market slowly (very slowly) creeping back with rising sales. And it’s nothing new to consider. Much like your parents and their parents before them, if one wanted to own high quality music, you got a record player and you got some records for it. While still much of a niche market, and likely to continue to be one for the time being, there is something not only retro or vintage about vinyls, but also very special about listening to music from one. Nowadays, listening to music isn’t much of an experience; you don’t even have to buy …

Timeless Fashion; Let’s Talk Twenties

Let’s talk timeless fashion with Stephanie, NYC fashion blogger of…Let’s Talk Twenties! I think it’s probably safe to say that at least half of my wardrobe is vintage, thrifted or second hand. I find that shopping at a store made up of other people’s closets is so much more fun than shopping at a store with 100 of the same style top or pants. It adds a more personal touch to my style and makes me feel like an individual. In my opinion, vintage jackets and blazers are the best. They have a larger, boxier fit and amazing shoulder structures. I have found the absolute best vintage Dior jackets at thrift stores all over Manhattan. Surprisingly, I’ve gotten away with only paying as little as $20 for a matching skirt and jacket. Does life get better? Whoever these ladies were that wore the fabulous Dior jackets that I’ve adopted have got it going on. They know all about that boyfriend trend, and I don’t mean an actual boyfriend. A boxy jacket and some skinny jeans …
