I’m all about trying out new trends but there are some where I want to dabble without the investment. Namely because I can already see a few months (or weeks) down the road I won’t be into the style anymore. Dropping $$$ on something that I will wear one time is just not practical for me.Read More
I first starting seeing this look on one of my favorite style blogs, Sincerely Jules. Her go-to brand was and still is, Golden Goose. I immediately looked up the style, eager to get a pair for myself. Then I realized how much these beat-up sneakers retail for - $450 and up! For dirty, worn-looking sneakers!?Read More
Would you believe this top is made from a men’s button down shirt? It’s true! It was an old shirt of Jeff’s that I reworked into this new peplum top. Keep reading for more details…Read More
There has been a bit of lapse in my posting on Fizz and Fade for the past month or so and for that I apologize. We had quite an eventful month of September but now with us in nearly mid-October things have settled down a bit.Read More
On June 22nd I married my best friend, Jeff. We went on our first date in 2010 and eight years later we tied the knot in Long Island City, NY in front of our families and dear friends.Read More
It's still summer but September is here so fall fashion is definitely on my mind. As with the start of every season there are certain style elements popping up slowly that are poised to be major trends for the upcoming months.Read More
he changing of the seasons always makes me feel excited and invigorated, like there is something wonderful just around the corner waiting to happen.Read More
I'm a print-lover, through and through. In the hot summer months my wardrobe and my apparel designs are dominated by colorful florals. Now that we are starting to transition into fall my print proclivity is shifting to more geometric and organic shapes.Read More
My shopping list for August moves away from the bright and poppy prints I've been wearing all summer long (like this top and this dress). Right now I'm feeling muted shades of pink and brown, woven textures and animal prints. Long sleeve floral-printed dresses are perfect for late summer and transition wonderfully into cooler fall temps. A few of my faves are this one, this one and this one.
Cheetah is making a comeback this fall - everything cycles in fashion, ya know? Slip and bias cheetah skirts are trending especially hard. I recently bought some cheetah fabric and plan to whip my own skirt up soon, but this style from And Other Stories is a great find and will work well into fall and winter paired with a chunky sweater and boots.
Oh yea, and all these pieces are under $100! Who says you get beef up your closet without dropping a ton of money?
One of the events we planned for our honeymoon was a luau - when in Hawaii right? I got this vintage skirt before our trip and intended to cut it up and use the fabric to make something else.Read More
Today's post is a random smattering of thoughts, things lately on my mind and recent stuff I have been up to. Would love you comments, feedback, thoughts on any of my below musings!Read More
Hats are one of my favorite accessories, especially in the summertime heat. They add interest to an outfit, shade your eyes and protect your skin - all good things in the summer months! I have purchased a number of hats over the years but have found I come back to a handful of classic styles again and again. Knowing that I'll wear the hat many times over makes me more willing to invest in a high quality piece as well. Today's post features my three favorite hat styles for summer and where you can pick up one of each for yourself as well. Hats off to you.
When we were in Kauai we set our alarms bright and early and drove out to Secret Cove, which was about a 10 minute drive from our hotel. After passing through a stone archway you find yourself on this absolutely beautiful little rocky beach.Read More
Maxi dresses seem to be the uniform of vacation-dressing, with flowing fabrics and colorful prints. Following in typical honeymoon fashion I packed a few on our trip to Hawaii.Read More
I am a huge fan of gingham in the summertime. It's one of those fabrics that really fits with "high summer", when temperatures are at their peak but you aren't quite sick of it yet.Read More
We're halfway through July and I'm feeling all kinds of inspired and motivated about the summertime season that is all around us here on the East Coast.Read More
Graphic tees are having a moment. But are they though? Graphic tees are always having a moment, ever since the 80's flash-dance era has there ever been a season that graphic tee shirts are not around in some capacity?Read More
We're back from our honeymoon in Hawaii! I took a hiatus from my blog in the weeks leading up to our wedding since I was just so busy finalizing all the details of our big day.Read More
I have been so busy finalizing wedding details over the past few weeks that I have been very neglectful of my blog. Now that we are officially married (woo hoo!) I am planning to get the content train back up and running on Fizz and Fade.Read More
