The new-age boho trend swarmed the runways with a resounding "swoosh" of the swaying fringe. From purses and boots to tassel necklaces, fringe was everywhere, paired with floral printed dresses, over-sized sweater dresses and plenty of floppy hats. While some went all-out 70's (a la Anna Sui), other shows merely hinted, more like the girls at Rodarte. This look is all about a more comfortable, loose fit, paired with harder accessories. Printed dresses with boots was the best and most achievable example.

The New Classic
The All-American Luxe woman is ready for anything, because she's dressed for anything. Powerful yet streamlined, tailored yet feminine, on trend yet so classic she'd never go out of style. Think rich cashmere coats with fur in every size, shape and form, worn over tailored dresses and pant suits. The shoes and accessories can be played up or down as much as you'd prefer, ranging from playful to severe, but the key to this look is keeping the colors neutral, or at least toned down. Stick to one color palette, and play around with textures instead.

Shoes: Celine size 39 $199.50
Slacks: Belvest size 8 $95.50
Sweater: Michael Kors cashmere size L $48.50
More Beads, Please
Layers of tulle, floral prints mixed with lace, and beads and embellishments everywhere. The runway fairytale princesses ranged from gypsy and free spirited to darkly romantic, but the whimsical air about them all gave us the impression that when it comes to dressing up: more is more. Reem Acra's runway had embellished fur coats, with fully beaded dresses and the highest heels covered in rhinestones. Vivenne Tam gave a more youthful outlook with a slightly Victorian flair, but still spared no sequin when it came to the gowns. And as for the reigning queens of fairytale dressing, the women at Marchesa gave their usual beautifully crafted feminine dresses that dreams are made of, styled to perfection with Gatsby-esque hair and the biggest, sparkliest jewels of all.

Clutch: vintage $65.50
Necklaces: $65.50 and $18.50
I know what you're thinking: "When is black and white NOT a trend..." But its the mod styling and color-blocking with minimal accessories that make this trend equally refreshing and totally doable. The actual pieces themselves don't have the word "trend" written all over them, meaning you can go with investment pieces, knowing you'll be able to wear them year after year. While labels like Calvin Klein Collection and Narciso Rodriguez have become synonymous with stylish yet minimal neutrals, Oscar de la Renta, under the rule of new designer Peter Copping, took a turn for the simplistic with the best looks showcasing this blatant black and white theme. Keep your clothes simple and your accessories simpler.

You have promised yourself forever and ever that you are going to clean out your closets and drawers but instead of moving forward, you just stuff more and more into the already stuffed closets. I know, it is a difficult project to undertake - weeding out the pieces you don't wear; it takes time and an open mind plus a whole bunch of resolve.
If you have way too much to sort at one time then I suggest that you decide to take it a foot by foot. Block off 12 inches in your closet and decide to really look at those few pieces in that short space. That is all you have to do at one time - 12 little inches.
If you LOVE it then put it in the "perfect for me" part of your closet. If you need to try it on, do it now. Does it fit? Good. Is the color fabulous on you? Good! Next question - do you wear it? If not, why not? It may be that the cut is just bad for your body shape or you need to add something to make it an outfit. Or maybe, just maybe you just don't like it even though you "should".
I think our closets are full of pieces that never make it onto our backs and out of the house. There is usually a good reason for the failure to actually wear 'that dress' or 'those slacks' or whatever but all too often, instead of moving it up and out, we choose to ignore it and shut the closet door.
We like to hold onto our stuff....for a really long time. The problem with this is clothing goes into an in-between state of being - its not in style and it's not vintage cool. It exists but really has no place to go: in a fashion sense it just takes up space.
If you are looking to make your fashion boo-boos go away, you really need to jump onto your closet cleaning at a faster pace.
Once you realize you are not wearing an item, or that a particular handbag doesn't feel "right" when you carry it, or you no longer like the person who gave you that Tiffany bracelet - you just need to get rid of it.
I often hear "but I paid so much for this". The reality is that the money is already spent, recoup what you can and make it snappy. The longer an item sits the less desireable it becomes......Having a closet filled with clothing that doesn't fit quite right, is the wrong color, looks bad on your body type or just isn't you, is just plain silly. Get. Rid. Of. It.
We have three (3) ways that you can consign with us! Check out our page www.newtoyou.net/howtoconsign/
Are you feeling a bit too casual in your tee shirts and yoga pants? And, you haven't just come from your yoga class? Are you finding yourself in a dressing rut but just want to try something a step up from your workout gear?
Here are a few suggestions for looking sharp and fashionable without giving up too much comfort.
Tees - think cotton, fun logos (like the Out of Print tops), fitted not baggy
Jeans with Lycra - benefit is comfort and No SBS - (saggy butt syndrome)
Cardigans - Neutrals or think great colors, thick or thin depending on the weather, long or cropped
Scarves - plaids, zig-zags, dots, animal prints
Shoes - ankle boots, plaid sneakers, flats with buckles or silly motifs, ballet flats.
Unstructured jacket or poncho - nothing too heavy, jean jacket
All tee shirts are not created equal so find a well-fitted tee shirt, maybe something with a fun logo to wear with a stretchy pair of jeans. We love the Out of Print tees. Try your best to avoid the over-sized tops. I see so many men and women wearing tee shirts that are WAY bigger than they are and it just makes them appear dumpy and much heavier than they really are. Trust me as you will feel much better when you look into the mirror and you see a physique reflected back to you that appears trim. Cotton tees are always a great bet as tops with too much polyester in them are just too warm.
As the weather turns cooler slip on a cardigan sweater with the tee and jeans.
You probably have a number of long, rectangular scarves lurking around so wrap one of these around your neck and you are ready to run off and take care of your weekend errands.
What do you find to be your favorite go-to piece to wear on the weekends?
To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my all-time favorite stories. It has been awhile since I've read it or seen the movie. While I was listing to NPR the other day there was an interview about the new book called The Mockingbird Next Door - Life with Harper Lee by Marja Mills.
I was really intrigued that Harper Lee and her sister, Alice, allowed Marja Mills to hang out with them for over a year and a half and then wrote this book about their reflections on life and such. Ms. Lee has never been partial to interviews and attention, so this is a really special happening.
We, here at New To You, recently started to sell some of the tee shirts and jewelry from Out Of Print. This is an on-line shop and sells products that highlight books and authors, some in-print and some out-of-print from time gone by. Besides the fact that their products are really fun, the other great thing is that for every item they sell a book is donated to someone in need. They partner with Books for Africa and make this great sharing of literature happen!
One of the items I loved the most was the "Scout & Boo " necklace. When Scout, played by Mary Badam, in the movie says, "Hey, Boo", it always gives me goosebumps! At any rate, the necklace is of two feathers made out of brass with a plating of 14 kt gold. I think it is a charming and sweet tribute to a delightful book and fascinating characters.
So, we have a couple of these necklaces in stock for you. I hope you like them as much as I do. The feathers would also be a great present for someone along with a copy of To Kill a Mockingbird. Hmmm, you could also just use the necklace to hang on your rear view mirror :)
