Iconic Style: Jane Birkin

Jane Birkin – if you haven’t heard the name then I’m judging you ( just a teensie bit ūüėõ ). The English singer, actress and fashionista has made her rounds in the spotlight in the 70s and even inspired the Hermes Birkin Bag (see, you must have heard of her one way or another, she’s legendary!)

Starting her stardom was the controversial song written by Serge Gainsbourgh, originally for Brigette Bardot, “Je t’aime moi non plus”.¬†Her fame came quickly and she instantly became known for her relentless, effortless and unique style. Unique being the key point – she was well-known for carrying a straw basket as a purse – a strange yet super chic accessory trend that only she could have started. One day, while boarding a plane, she spilt the contents of her ‘purse’ across the floor right infront of the feet of our very own Hermes, where she went on to explain that she just couldn’t find the right bag that actually closed at the top. there you have it. That’s when Hermes granted her wishes and made the inonic Birkin Bag in honor of her, and of course, gave her a few along the way. She keeps just one for herself, until it’s time for a new, and donates the others for charity.

Jane Birkin still continues to inspire style today, as the straw picnic-esque purse was actually quite the fad this summer.

Here are some highlights of her most casual, yet chic moments. Sometime’s it’s not the clothes you wear, it’s how you wear them.

Fall 2016 Style Trends

Summer came and went in quite literally, what feels like, the blink of an eye. It seems as though I just did a Summer Trends post. Well, with that being said, we must start gearing up and getting ready for a lovely Autumn season ahead of us. Autumn is by far my favorite season – the lack of outwear to cover up all the glam underneath! It’s the perfect street style weather, and there’s no excuse for not taking advantage of it! Therefore, I pulled some of the more realistic looks from the runways so you can know¬†what to look for on your next shopping trip to get ready for Fall 2016.

Dramatic Furs & Shearling Jackets

This isn’t a trend, really… This is a cold weather thing. Fur will forever be trending!

Long, Bell Sleeved Blouses

Oversized is by far my favorite style. It’s beautiful and so stylish! This hits all the nails on the head.

Velvet

Velvet is here to stay for 2016. This isn’t just trending in the clothing department, the runway is telling us that Velvet¬†everything is this seasons must.

Puffer Jackets

This has to be my least favorite look of the season. I do love a tea length puffer jacket, but that’s about the extent of it. I find them to have a classy appeal but the rest can be perceived as somewhat tacky.

Suits / Menswear Inspired

Great Gatsby-esque, except the woman are in charge this time around. There’s nothing more demanding and powerful than a woman in suit, and lets not forget, epically stylish!

Sweatshirts

This trend is one you have to be careful with – like the puffer jacket, there are limits. There are chic sweatshirts and there are ones you just shouldn’t leave the house in. This trend doesn’t mean you can just throw on any sweatshirt and be stylish! Forever 21 has some great pullovers with funny logos and trendy styles to them.

Capes & Capelets

This piece is the epitome of Fall. These are easily stylish and so classy!

Cold Shoulder

Take this summers off the shoulder trend and alter it a bit and you get the singular cold shoulder for this Fall. This is a unique one!

April Rocksbox…

I’m back at it in the realm of jewelry and teaming up with Rocksbox to show you the awesome sets I receive from them and how you can get them too!

If you don’t already know, Rocksbox is a jewelry distributor company that hand picks designer piece and sends you a “set” (3 pieces). This can range anywhere from necklaces to rings, earrings, and bracelets. Sometimes a set isn’t exactly always a ‘set’ like you have in mind; this can be two bracelets and a necklace, the typical idea of a set with earrings a bracelet and a necklace, etc. What happens is, you pay a monthly subscription fee. When the jewelry is sent to you, you can keep it for as long as you like, or send it back for your next set. You can even send only two pieces back, and get two more back! Rocksbox also allows you to buy the designer pieces at a special discounted price!  Shipping the items back is easy and free, as Rocksbox provides you with packaging and labels.

This month, I received two necklaces and a pair of earrings.

On Rocksbox, you can favorite pieces that you like so that they can be sent to you. I ‘favorited’ these earrings, although I was a bit skeptical and unsure, when they arrived they were more beautiful than anticipated! There has never been anything from Rocksbox that I’ve gotten that I haven’t liked. The best part of all of it, is that you can always stay on trend and wear the best designer items for an affordable price.

Forever 21 in all honesty is the goldmine of affordable trends. This 70s inspired outfit is just a few things among the hundreds of pieces Forever 21 has that is modernized from the decade. Not only that, but different parts of their stores carry different trends. I’m crazy in love with this trend, as I think the pieces put separately with other modern pieces from your closet are effortlessly timeless.
