The Louis Reign Takeover & Why Plaid is a Timeless Fashion Statement

As Cher Horowitz would say, “You see how picky I am about my shoes, and those only go on my feet.” If Clueless took place in 2017 in New York City, then this outfit would have been Cher’s iconic, yellow plaid skirt-suit ensemble. This look has transcended along the ages. Plaid never goes out of style, and neither does our Look Book! Christine Louis of the trendy fashion and art blog Louis Reign shared with us her style philosophy on the set of our autumn photo shoot collaboration. “My style is edgy with a twist. I love neutral colors and mixing vintage pieces with luxury pieces.” Her outfit screams just that. Contrasting red, dark blue, green, and black created a bold color palette; a color palette that is still dark enough to wear during the fall. While mixing a Prada cross-body bag with a plaid skirt allows for a mixing of luxury and the 90’s vintage-inspired pieces. We love her contrasting muted olive-green fedora hat. Christine mixes yet totally achieves a match-worthy ensemble with the …

Editor’s Letter

Summer 2017 The last few weeks of spring has been a whirlwind of life changes for me: hospital visits, exciting yet challenging changes in my 9-to-5, relocation to a gorgeous new place to call home, and the list goes on. However, I’ve been running. Running away from as many tasks as I can. It’s exhausting—the running away part. I’m passionate about doing only the things that make me happy, unfortunately, #adulting does not allow for that. As my responsibilities and tasks increased, some with warning others without, I began to do a little of everything instead of focusing on a few. Of course spring is notably time for a change, but my mind and heart is set for rejuvenation of summer days—clearly, I’m still running, but #adulting is hard. I’m ready for a break! I was recently asked what my plans are for the summer, sadly I had no answer. Although I’m not off to an exotic vacay, I do plan to have fun this summer and truly fine tune the goal setting I started …

Speak Out, Speak Loud: Combating Campus Assault

It would be wrong to say violence ends when you turn the television off or act as if injustice didn’t exist anymore, but if you reflect back on 2016 so far, one of the biggest topics that often dominated the news and blogosphere was the high frequency of assaults on college campuses around the country. In a place where many young adults begin to learn who they are and who they want to be while enjoying a comfortable freedom and safety among their peers discovered freedom and safety could not always be guaranteed. One of the most discussed topics surrounding sexual assault has been the People v. Turner case. Brock Turner was an undergraduate student at Stanford University in Northern California when he was apprehended by two Swedish international students who witnessed Turner sexually assaulting an unconscious woman. The students who stopped Turner from continuing to assault the young woman stated that they intervened because they could tell that the woman was clearly unconscious. Turner was then subsequently arrested, charged and indicted on two counts of felony assault and …

Simply Audree Kate: Earthed Denim

New York City-based blogger, Audree Kate, otherwise known as Simply Audree Kate, dresses up for our Fall 2016 Look Book! Audree’s sun-kissed highlights and contagious smile are  just two of the reasons she’s featured in this year’s summer to fall style transition. The budding stylist’s unique take on her personal style is the third. “A mix between your grandmother’s vintage floral couch and a rock concert. It’s feminine yet edgy, and has a vintage twist,” mentions Audree. She paired her classic denim jacket with a long sleeve pinstripe button down. The sleeves of the button down are rolled over to the cuffs of the denim jacket, giving the look an urban flare and seriousness while still being laid back. The tiered and velvet skirt is the perfect shade for fall: olive green. The subtle hue blends with all the colors that come with autumn. She doesn’t let the earth tones stop there; Audree dons a pair of cognac colored mules. She finishes her outfit off with sunglasses and a dazzling gold statement necklace. We’ve got three more look book features to add …
