Store Style: Blue Jean Baby

In case you couldn’t tell by looking at our website, we’re pretty into denim right now – even the good old Canadian tuxedo!  But even if head to toe denim is a little too much for you, we love finding ways to incorporate pieces of it into every outfit, and it feels so fresh for Spring. Here’s some styling inspiration from our always-lovely store girls!

The denim bustier dress is definitely our dress of the moment – change it up a little by adding a slip underneath!

The perfect cutoff denim short – wear them now with tights and boots; wear them later with bare legs and sandals – and of course the laguna coast pullover!

A sweet Meadow look: the fp high rise flares, flower smocked tube top and suede floral headband.

I love how she paired the denim bustier dress with a belt in a contrasting shade of blue – the dress also looks great with the caballero tall boot and jane wide brim hat.

Details: Grunge

Here at the home office we have completely embraced the grunge trend. I think it’s the time of year, chilly weather and the upcoming holidays lend themselves to comfy layering tinged with cool grunge elements – think ripped tees, vests, cozy flannel & thermals, tights & denim and the ever-present beanie. It’s all in the details…

The tattered flag scarf looks awesome over denim and stripes.

I love how our designer paired the floral chambray overall with a delicate blouse – and I especially love that slightly tattered cuff detail!

Blogger Picks: Christina Caradona of Trop Rouge

Grunge has been on our minds. It’s the cool revival of the 90’s with an “I don’t give an F” attitude. Washed and distressed pieces – leather and studs.  We’re channeling Alice Dellal and Kurt Cobain as we layer it on.

Last week we invited some blogger friends down to help us interpret the look. We piled all of our latest cutoff shorts, leather jackets, grunge tees, boots, and washed pieces into a display – letting them go at it: styling and telling us which items they liked best.

First up: Christina Caradona of Trop Rouge

Christina (pictured above in our Long Sleeved Mixed Graphic Baseball Tee, Gilded Santorini Collar, and her own jeans) took on the grunge trend effortlessly.  She looks like one tough chick you wouldn’t want to mess with. Perhaps, because she already has a lot of that come as you are, carelessly sexy look you need to pull it off. The clothes wore so naturally on her, making the trend surprisingly organic and hard feeling at the same time. Below she models in our We the Free Reverse it Kachow Thermal, Denim Cutoff Shorts, and Painted Distress Boot.

Before she left we asked Christina to fill out a questionnaire for you all. Time to let her speak for herself!
