Get the Look: Overalls

Overalls are one of my favorite street style trends for spring!
… But they can be tricky to pull off.  I suggest opting for a darker wash if you’re feeling a little unsure about the trend.  Pairing overalls with a classic stripe is an easy way to incorporate them into your wardrobe.  I chose to offset the classic stripes with pops of neon and a trendy stacked heel.  River Island has an amazing selection of these fun jeweled statement clutches!
 Check out my overalls board on Pinterest for more inspiration!

A Toast To: The Guys of NYFW

This one’s for the guys!

So often we focus on the women’s street wear trends for fashion week instead of giving some of the world’s most fashionable men some credit.  I’ve compiled my favorite street style looks from New York Fashion Week Fall 2014.  Enjoy!

A (huge) Toast to: Miroslava Duma

I cannot get enough of Mira Duma’s style!!!!

Mira Duma

Every time her photo pops up on my Pinterest or in the fashion coverage of WWD, Vogue, and Harper’s Bazaar, I can’t help but to go crazy over her personal style.  The creativity and innovation that she puts into her outfits is rivaled by none.  She ceaselessly comes up with bold ideas that quickly turn into trends all over the world.

Mira Duma is the daughter of a Russian senator, previous editor for Russian Harper’s Bazaar,  and founder of Buro 24/7.  She is a spokeswoman for Chime for Change, a charity by Gucci that promotes education, heath, and justice for women everywhere.

Duma is also the founder of her own charity, Peace Planet, which focuses on culture and education through the organization of exhibitions, conferences, theatrical performances, opera performances, artistic activities, as well as through literary works and performing arts.
