Words of Wisdom

Diane von Furstenburg has long been one of my fave designers.  She is not afraid to take a risk, as she did so many years ago when she first launched her wrap dresses.  She is a strong woman that follows her dreams, an inspiration to us all & a wonderful role model for young women around the world.  I saw this on Pinterest & just had to share!

I know this isn't our typical Fashion Friday post but wise words are always in fashion!  Hope you have a wonderful weekend!


Seeing Red

Good morning Lovelies!  Who isn't loving this cooler weather?  One of the things I love most about a new season is the changing of trends.  One of the easiest trends to wear this Fall is putting a little pop of color into your wardrobe.  In seasons past Fall has been known for pretty neutrals but this season color is making a bold statement!  Red is one of the key colors you will see on everything from outerwear to shoes.  I like one bold piece paired with black to create a little drama.  Here are a few of our favorite statement pieces.

Kate Spade Simmone Jkt (absolutely love the pleats on this!)

Trina Turk Creative Jacket

Diane von Furstenburg Maeryn Dress

Kate Spade Kenmare Street Purse

One of the things that completes all of these pieces are the details.  They all have a little something extra that make them special.  If you are going to standout in red make sure you go all the way!

**As always, if you are coveting the pieces seen here give us a call at Monkee's of Chapel Hill 


Mix and Match

Ahhh, cooler weather blew in this morning & helped make Monday a little more bearable.  With temperatures dipping & fall around the bend it is time to start thinking about fall fashion.  We are loving one of our all time fave bloggers Blair, over at Atlantic-Pacific & the look she has put together from two of our go-to designers, Shoshanna & Hunter Boots.
I love that she has made her Shoshanna dress a little more casual but still very chic & her Hunter boots are are making a statement on their own in red.  If you don't follow Blair's blog you absolutely must.  Girl has some seriously covetable (is that a word?!?) looks that she rocks!
