The New “Ugly” Christmas Sweater

  Holiday Uniform: Kid Style by cahuengakid Tis the season for holiday parties. And where there are holiday parties, there are festive sweaters, sequins, brocade, fur, and all other manner of tired classic holiday season trends. Ready to mix things up this year?

Wardrobe Staples: The Sweater Dress

Rain, low temps, and cloudy skies have all made an appearance in Los Angeles this week and they’ve got me thinking about cool weather wardrobe staples. In particular, the sweater dress. As evidenced by these photos of french singer and style icon Françoise Hardy, it’s a classic. Paired with over the knee boots, this is a look that’s as chic today as it was on Hardy in 1968.…

Stylecon Saturday

If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen a few posts from Stylecon this past weekend. As a newbie blogger I’ve been looking for opportunities to learn more about blogging and to get involved in the blogging community.

A is for Activewear

Hey Kids! I thought I’d mix things up a little bit today and do a post on activewear.  Activewear has evolved so much in the last few years, even spawning an entire new “genre” with athleisure. Garments have become incredibly versatile, technical, practical, and fashionable. Seriously! A quick browse through Carbon 38 should convert any skeptics out there. I…

Trend Tuesday

    As a lover of vintage fashion, I’ve been delighted by the 60s and 70s influence we’ve been seeing in recent trends. I’m particularly taken with the bell sleeve, and am ready to carry it over into fall and winter.  The bell sleeve is an incredibly wearable and flattering trend, elongating arms and balancing the shoulders…
