I feel like a little store I’ve known about for a while has all of a sudden blown-up & their pieces are being donned by the best celebrities. I am thrilled, because Zara has been a favorite of mine for quite some time now, as they had a store downtown for years. Zara is one of the largest international fashion companies &  has stores all over the U.S., Middle East, Europe, Africa & Asia. They pride themselves on high-quality, high-fashion design, without the high-end prices & being eco-friendly. Do we wonder why I’ve worshiped them for so long now? I am happy they’re finally getting the recognition they deserve, being worn by Rachel Bilson, Camilla Belle, & Olivia Palermo, just to name a few. Why not check out Zara for your fall & winter essentials (the ones you have yet to purchase, procrastinators)?


As far as I’m concerned, the military styles are stronger now than ever. I absolutely adore this wool military-styled double-breasted coat for the chilly winter months ahead ($129.00). Purchase It!


Belt this Extra-Large Sweater for a more fitted look, or leave it long & baggy over leggings. Either way, this is a perfect versatile sweater that would flatter anyone ($89.90). Purchase It!


I’ve mentioned it before, but lace detailing is BIG this season & I love it! The feminine, subtle detail that lace provides is perfect & this Lace Dress is no exception ($79.90). Purchase It!


A casual boot is a must for fall & winter. This Combined Riding Boot is perfect to throw over jeans or leggings and pair with almost any top ($169.00). Purchase It!


The Fashion City Bag with Flap is a must for all seasons. I love the handle/ strap combo & the versatility as it’s appropriate for a workday or a night out ($169.00). Purchase It!


Zara has a ton of locations all over the world, so check out their site for a location near  you (or an online shopping spree).

Fashion Rule to Break!

1 Nov

A friend came to me with a fashion question: Can you wear black & brown together? This is one fashion rule I’m adamant about breaking. After all, two neutral colors have to go together; it’s the whole idea of neutrality. Thankfully, I have a few fashion icons helping me prove this “rule” is outdated:

Lauren Conrad

Lauren’s blouse helped her with her decision to pair black & brown together. The gorgeous flower detail, brown in color, looked amazing paired with open-toed heels & a cute suede purse (both brown, of course). The casual vibe this outfit emits shows the perfect opportunity for color-pairing exploration.

Kate Moss

Unlike Lauren’s look above, Kate Moss shows that black & brown go together for a more dressier look, as well. Paired with a great blazer & high-waisted pant, Kate used a brown t-shirt to offset the black-on-black hues.

Heidi Klum

The ultimate form of the black & brown combo: Leopard print! Heidi Klum displays this amazing design of black & brown so perfectly, & lucky for us, animal-print is definitely in style this season. Take a page from Heidi’s black & brown look-book & pick up some leopard print pieces.

More celebrities like Rachel Bilson, Anne Hathaway & Kristen Bell sport the black & brown look so take a page from their book as well. Try pairing a black dress with a brown leather jacket; black leggings with brown boots or a black sweater with a brown belt cinching the waist. Both colors are complimentary neutrals, so don’t be surprised when they shatter your beloved fashion rule.

Editor’s Note: Thank you so much, Reese, for the awesome idea for this post! I hope this inspires you for many more “mismatching” looks.
