La Vie Bohème

Deep inside every woman lives a true bohemian waiting to be let out to play. While diva style looks amazing, it can be less than comfortable — and don’t even get me started on winged eyeliner and the trouble it causes. In contrast, bohemian looks involve funky, relaxed clothing in beautiful prints, loose hair, comfortable shoes and no makeup whatsoever!

Some days I think this is the perfect look for curvy girls because it is about being comfortable in your own skin, and not being dependent on stiff or uncomfortable clothing to keep you looking sharp. Knowing who you are and why you’re here is a trait curvy fashionistas and divas alike share. While we all have those days where we rock out and go all out, including that dreaded winged eyeliner, at the heart of it all we’re women who want to relax and share time with our family and friends, and not worry about having to fuss with clothes.

So, in honor of “la vie boheme,” here are a few of my favorite bohemian-style pieces from Zappos!

A great flowing dress in funky prints never goes wrong when you’re rocking bohemian style. Bright, soft, short or long, the main key is comfort!

If skirts and dresses aren’t your thing, a flowing palazzo pant paired with a great top will still capture that free and easy spirit.

Remember what I said about comfortable shoes?  Please don’t think comfortable doesn’t mean stylish — designers are bringing us a great selection of both this season. Imagine it, shoes you can go out in that you can actually wear all day!

Accessories are the final key to the bohemian look. When in doubt, think round glasses and a layered chain to keep the ease and simplicity flowing.

Fabulous Fall: 3 Great Looks for the Fierce & Fabulous

Can you believe that it’s nearly fall? High school football has begun, and in a few short weeks we will be enjoying games while bundled up against the chill, cocoa in one hand and our cell phones in the other. The season of harvest festivals, apple picking, and yes, pumpkin-flavored EVERYTHING is soon upon us. As I look out the windows here at work and see the shades of browns and greens beginning to change, I’m excited for cooler temperatures that open up the days to so many more possibilities.  

As leaves change colors and scatter to the ground, we’re given the chance to begin anew new. We don’t have to wait for the start of a new year to tackle that one adjustment we keep talking about. We can just simply take the first step and make it happen, from new jobs to new relationships and everything in between.

We can even take this new season to help us out of a personal rut, whether it be taking the same road every day to work or wearing dark, boring clothing every day. I admit that I have fallen into the trap of wearing dark colors because it is “slimming.” However, I’ve been making an effort to actually include color in my wardrobe. Thankfully there are some amazing pieces in this year’s fall collections!

One of my favorite trends this fall is a nod to the pumpkin-flavored-everything trend: gorgeous shades of oranges, warm browns reminiscent of cinnamon and nutmeg, and cool creams, all reminding us of the bounty of fall. Earthy tones, like this wonderful top by Vince Camuto, gently brings us down from the bright and poppy colors of summer.

For those of us not quite ready to give in to the season of change, softer, muted tones of summer is reflected in these pieces by Rachel Pally and Steve Madden. Add in great accessories by Kendra Scott, unstructured bags of soft, supple leathers, and polished booties to add strut to your stride, and you’re ready for a fabulous fall.

Menswear Monday: Classic Shirts with a Modern Twist

Let’s start this Menswear Monday off with one of my favorite mottos: “change is good.” Here at Zappos, one of our Core Values is “Embrace and Drive Change;” so why not take this philosophy and make it apply to your wardrobe? Don’t get me wrong, I think basics serve as the foundation to any well-dressed gentleman’s wardrobe. However, why not “flip the script,” so to speak, on some classic fashion staples? Listed below are some examples of how contemporary designs have influenced classic menswear staples.

Fashion is all about experimentation, so do be afraid to incorporate a new color, pattern, or print into your wardrobe. Many of today’s top fashion brands have implemented contemporary twists into their collections through the use of mixed-media fabrications, unique dye processes, and bold prints. A classic polo shirt with a striking dip-dye effect can easily add a contemporary twist to your look without being too bold. If you find yourself a little on the conservative side when it comes to your style, feel free to try out a long sleeve raglan Henley with contrast colored sleeves to add some visual interest to your look.

These contemporary design twists can easily elevate your look from casual to dressy. Pair slim-fitting dark jeans or chinos with a garment-washed denim shirt for a date night look. When happy hour is calling your name, a color-blocked polo paired with flat front shorts and boat shoes is a look that certainly summer ready.
