Growing up in West Virginia I instantly correlate camo with hunting. In 2014, I found my head turning when I saw Valentino’s red camouflage collection. My personal fashion style falls somewhere around a tailored Jackie Onassis Kennedy look, a little Rachel Zoe boho chic and some Gwen Stefani rocker flare. It is all about dressing for the occasion, what makes you feel amazing while representing your personality. There’s no hiding I am in love with Valentino’s rockstud collection. I’ve resisted adding trends like chevron prints into my life because I think they are too trendy and will be out dated. Chevron isn’t going anywhere and neither is camouflage. Embrace the camouflage and let it make an entrance into your life.
Thank goodness for designer consignment sites like The Real Real where you can grab past seasons trends you can’t live without, for a steal. I personally don’t mind spending half of the retail cost for a pair of shoes that are already broken in. The Real Real offers $25 off your first purchase and frequently has 20% off discount codes, a variety of designer sales and kick back rewards for purchases. They have a 14 day return policy on most items except handbags.
Haute red camo strikes again for Fall 2016 fashion. I was invited to a Cabi Clothing party and instantly made the connection with their Camo Pullover sweater and Valentino’s red camo print. This sweater was made a quick addition to my Fall wardrobe. For $109, why not? Brooks Brothers has a similar sweater called Zebra Intarsia in their Fall collection for $328.
I’ll be paring this sweater with Kendra Scott accessories. Kendra Scott jewelry is becoming as iconic as Chanel. I can spot someone wearing her classic earrings such as Lee, Dani or Elle from a distance. I’m a sucker for metallic and her drusy designs. You can’t go wrong coordinating this sweater with black, gold or rose gold accessories. Did you know that during your birthday month you can score Kendra Scott baubles at 50% in her boutique stores? If you are concerned that her earrings are too heavy for your ears, pick up the Lobe Wonder protectors she sells in her store. These little stickers attach to the back of your lobe allowing you to wear your big chandelier earrings for hours. The Color Bar is a great girls night out or birthday party spot to design your own earrings. Kendra Scott stores are are expanding like wildfire and popping up all over the place.
