Designer Fashion

One of our patrons purchased an ad for the upcoming Design Wine & Dine event with Historic Macon Foundation. Chairs of the event & designers, Susannah Maddux and Canaan Marshall, dropped in Wear to model for our ad.

They were a lot of fun to photograph, and so photogenic it was difficult to narrow down our favorite.

Susannah has on a vintage dress with a tropical fish embellishment ($30) with her own Dianne Von Fustenberg heels.Canaan is modelling a nice Ralph Lauren summer button down ($18), which went perfectly with his blue pants.

This one made the final cut.

Check out Design Wine & Dine from June 24-30, 2016. Wear is right in line with their Design Home, where Designers effortlessly show how to mix flea market finds with show room pieces to create an elevated and approachable look.

Bring that mentality into fashion, combining your thrifted finds with your personal style!

One Base, Two Options.

IMG_2361The temps are climbing, and a t-shirt and skirt are standard ‘go-to’ for quick, cool wear! Why not bump it up a notch with a light blouse and accessories? Below are two options for our current ‘t-shirt & skirt’ pick.

To start:

We have a base of a coral t-shirt ($2) paired with a NWT cream skirt (by Virtue, $20). It’s great as-is with a pair of flip flops and a small purse (or your favorite tote).

However, you can take it up a notch–and not worry about a cool Spring breeze– with a patterned blouse, scarf, and purse selection.

IMG_2360First option: The Tommy Bahama shirt.

The pattern of the shirt with the muted neutrals makes the t-shirt a peeking POP of color. The simple necklace repeats the colors of the Tommy Bahama silk blouse ($15). Paired with a leather vintage pill-box purse ($12), and a pair of vintage basket-weave leather Trotters (on sale this week–3/21/16, $4). The coral variegated scarf ($5) can loosely drape around the neck for a cool evening breeze.

 

 

Second Option: The Leopard Print

Bring out your wild side with this sheer leopard print blouse by Banana Republic ($16). Gold buttons flash, IMG_2356and you can direct attention up by carrying the pale base down to your sandals (Salpy brand, normally $20, on
sale this week for $4!). Stick with the variegated scarf, and snag an Aigner bag (NWT, $28) in a cream linen with pale green corners to compliment the coral top. A bright coral pedicure will balance your style, and show you’re ready to go!

Warm weather and cool Spring breezes can’t stop your style!

Subtle pattern combination–this turquoise tweed skirt paired with this Asian inspired floral top. The turquoise in the shirt matches well with the skirt, and the Asian inspired hard-leather purse (Italian, vintage) blends well with the oranges in the top. The solid Antonio Melani kitten heel loafers ground the style with a business briskness. Add a peach scarf for a chill Spring breeze–notice, it’s not wide enough to cover the great turquoise & gold bib necklace. Outfit perfect for a woman, size 10 skirt, large shirt, and shoes at 7 1/2.

Total price of outfit, $62 plus tax.
