Q&A: What colors work well with very light sage green?

Q&A: What colors work well with very light sage green?

CAR_4699.450x675

Carolina Herrera SS14, proof that sage can look pretty damn good.

Q: Thanks this is great :-) but I need HELP! What colors work well with very light sage green? I look great in bright warm colors (and totally washed out drab/light colors), but I was gifted a beautiful (very expensive) light sage sweater-vest (button up) from my mother-in-law and I want to show it off to please her (she keeps…

Noteworthy #024: Happy Birthday, Andy.

“Shoes” (1980)

Today, August 6th, marks what would be Andy Warhol’s 86th birthday. From capturing stunning images of pop-culture icons, pushing the boundaries of what art is, and even, to this day, influencing artists around him it’s clear that Andy definitely continues to outlive his “15 minutes of fame.”

However, aside from his bold screen print work and the infamous stories of his party days…

Into Mind is a comprehensive, well-rounded, style blog that has what literally every single style blog lacks: substance. The voice of…

5 Emerging US Fashion Brands to Celebrate This Independence Day

5 Emerging US Fashion Brands to Celebrate This Independence Day

made_in_usa_tag

There’s a lot to celebrate about being an American… I guess. Sure, stereotypically Americans may be more celebrity culture centric, social media reliant and less likely to eat well or exercise but there’s more to us than that. I promise. Aside from our selfish tendencies and addiction to the “quick fix,” we do manage to do a lot of really cool things. One of those cool things, obviously, happens…

Color Theory: Cayenne

bfe11e1890cbee909a29e6a14f8d876b

To be honest, I’m not really a summer person. If I don’t have a reason or an intense urge to be outside in the heat, I’m perfectly content spending endless hours inside sometimes not even seeing the light of day. I hate humidity and I’m a big fan of layered clothing. Summer makes me hermetic, in a non-depressing way, and I’m completely cool with that.

However despite my reluctance toward the…

Noteworthy #022: Maison Martin Margiela X Converse SS14

(Margiela X Converse SS14)

Let’s be real, it’s rare for somebody to say that something is “one of a kind,” and it not be an extreme over exaggeration or a cliche. However, when I say that the latest Maison Martin Margiela X Converse collaboration is one of a kind, I mean it in every sense of the phrase.

On sale now, the avant garde French fashion brand has teamed up with Converse, yet again, to…

How To Pull Off A Floppy Hat

( Miranda Kerr in a floppy hat in Harper’s Bazaar UK)

I. Love. Hats.

Well to be specific, I love beanies. However, when Chicago weather starts reaching a hot and humid high of 85 degrees, a heavy knit beanie isn’t necessarily my go to headwear. With that being said, I’ve been doing some serious research (well as serious a online shopping can be) for a hat style I’d like to adopt for the summer…

(OOOOoooooooh, Aaaaaaah)

A lot of things have been going on in the fashion industry lately. Dolce & Gabanna were found, yet again, guilty for tax evasion (although the duo is reportedly planning to fight back…again), Everyone in attendance at the 2014 Met Gala looked wonderful… well almost everyone, and J.Crew CEO Mickey Drexler clarified that the retailer doesn’t have any plans of opening a…

Color Theory: Radiant Orchid

Color Theory: Radiant Orchid

edited18-3224RadiantOrchid-TPXchip[1].r

Inspired by the unexpected success of the Color Combinations article I posted last winter and countless follow up questions I’ve since received on how to dress using color theory principals, I’ve decided to start a new segment on The Style Note entitled: Color Theory. Although I think that’s a straightforward enough title, let me explain. Each month I’ll pick a new color (or maybe you can pick,…
