That 70’s Show-Stopper…. Copy Kendall Jenner’s Style

The off-the-shoulder look is here through summer!

Kendall Jenner's Style

Who else has been drooling over the 70’s style?! We’re seeing chokers, flare bottoms, off-the-shoulder every way imaginable and crazy bell sleeves this season! I love to look through all these trends in fashion magazines but I will have to say…some styles are a bit too much. However, Kendall Jenner is one celeb I can relate to. Here she's spotted wearing an off-the-shoulder top and flare jeans. While her style is always chic, let's face it, not everyone can splurge hundreds of dollars on an outfit. So we mimicked her wearable style at a fraction of the cost!

 

Our Approach

This burgundy off-the-shoulder bell sleeve is totally 70’s and absolutely gorgeous!  We paired it with an arrow bolo choker and flare, distressed jeans to create a look that is less than $140.00! I was able to grab a pair of my Stella and Dot aviator Sunnies and Rebecca Minkoff MAB bag to complete the look.

From Work to Happy Hour – Celebrity Style On a Budget

 

Wearable celebrity style

When we think of Victoria Beckham, we think “fashion”.  We would be more apt to see a smile on Mrs. Beckham’s face than to find her in anything but pure, classic, posh, style.  So, when we came across this image of her we knew exactly how we would turn her celebrity style into your “go-to” work-to-happy hour style.

To start, we simply tucked a plaid button up blouse into a pair of high-waisted pants.  Then we added the Essential Fringe Necklace from Stella & Dot and grabbed a clutch.  To complete the look, add a pair of heels and a jacket if needed.  This ensemble will take you from work to play in a hot minute!

Pantone Color Palette and 2017 Color of the Year – Eliza Ash Blog

Every year the Pantone Color Institute unveils a color of the year and 10 trending colors of each fashion season. They just announced the 2017 Color of the Year and Spring Color Report consisting of 10 colors. I was pleasantly surprised to see what they chose & why they chose them! This year’s 2017 Color of the Year: Greenery (15-0343), is inspired by nature and influences design.

Since 2000, the Pantone Color Institute has strived to choose a color that reflects the current cultural climate. Typically, in the following year you can see the color appear in all facets of design – architecture, interior décor, fashion, food, travel & more!

Greenery signifies beginningsa fresh New Year; healthier food resolutions and growing vegetarian trends; grass and the outdoors during spring and summer. But most prominently, the yellow-green hue (specifically, Pantone 15-0343) comments on the concept of ‘environment.’ – Forbes

There is absolutely a go-green movement happening across the globe today. Airbnb has even partnered with Pantone to create a nature experience inspired by the color.

More and more people every year see the need to reconnect with nature and disconnect from technology every once in a while. We simply need a break sometimes.

(Greenery) is about unity and community — connecting to oneself and others and a higher purpose, Nature. – Laurie Pressman, the Pantone Color Institute’s vice president

Greenery is not meant to be a “green with envy” hue like Emerald was in 2013 symbolizing luxury. Greenery is meant to symbolize quite the opposite – minimalism.  In regards to fashion, there are many style icons and big name brands, like H&M, setting their sights on environmentally-friendly alternatives. Fashion designer Vivienne Westwood has a motto, “Buy less, choose well, make it last.” It also influenced one of his collections.

You have probably already seen Greenery be represented on the runways, walking in various forms at Gucci, Kenzo, Bagelencia, Michael Kors, Zac Posen, and Cynthia Rowley. Pantone called Greenery “Nature’s neutral” and are encouraging people to wear it year round as a statement color.

2017 pantone color palette

If you were paying attention this past September, you would have seen the release of the Spring 2017 Color Report, which is a selection of 10 colors. The Color of the Year isn’t always included in the 10, but Greenery made it this year. Together, the colors encompass promises, hope and transformation that we look forward to in the spring season. When you see the color, let it remind you to refresh, revive, restore, renew, replenish, regenerate, rejuvenate, reinvigorate & re-oxygenate. Think, fresh beginnings, and let the yellow hue in Greenery remind you of the sun. Taking this reminder into consideration this year, Eliza Ash Boutique will be providing styles that represent these words & styles you can wear with Greenery that make you feel & look great.

New Year, New You, New Resolutions

Happy New Year!

While everyone was either (a) partying it up all weekend celebrating the commencement of a new year and/or (b) reflecting on all that 2016 had to offer and the changes they’d like to make in 2017, I found this quote that 18 year old Jordan posted on Facebook. Most people would cringe at the things they said and pictures they posted almost 8 years ago – I do most of the time, but I’m so thankful I came across this one during my weekend of celebrating & reflecting! It’s a quote from Meredith Grey of Grey’s Anatomy. Some of you may have heard this before, but it goes a little something like this:

“A couple of hundred years ago, Benjamin Franklin shared with the world the secret of his success. Never leave that till tomorrow, he said, which you can do today. This is the man who discovered electricity. You think more people would listen to what he had to say. I don’t know why we put things off, but if I had to guess, I’d have to say it has a lot to do with fear. Fear of failure, fear of rejection, sometimes the fear is just of making a decision, because what if you’re wrong? What if you’re making a mistake you can’t undo? The early bird catches the worm. A stitch in time saves nine. He who hesitates is lost. We can’t pretend we hadn’t been told. We’ve all heard the proverbs, heard the philosophers, heard our grandparents warning us about wasted time, heard the damn poets urging us to seize the day. Still sometimes we have to see for ourselves. We have to make our own mistakes. We have to learn our own lessons. We have to sweep today’s possibility under tomorrow’s rug until we can’t anymore. Until we finally understand for ourselves what Benjamin Franklin really meant. That knowing is better than wondering, that waking is better than sleeping, and even the biggest failure, even the worst, beats the hell out of never trying.”

I’m willing to bet everyone who read this can relate to something in that quote. I know that for some, 2016 was a great year & for others it may have seemed like your worst year yet. I’m not here to give you a pep talk – unless you want one, but I do think you’re braver than you believe, smarter than you seem, smarter than you think & your best years are ahead of you! It’s not a new year without new resolutions so here is my list & I’d love to hear what you all have on yours!

Don’t be afraid

Set small goals & celebrate them often

Workout more

Find a reason to be thankful everyday

Be positive

Attend church more often

Travel to new places

Read more books

Celebrate new & old friendships & their accomplishments

Throw a scarf on any casual top to dress it up and keep it warm. I’m an athletic build and love to sport athletic wear! See what I did there? This lighweight hoodie is perfect for layering!

cold shoulder top with dark jeans

This cold shoulder top comes in 2 other colors – black & charcoal. It’s a fitted top that looks great with a jeans or a high-waisted skirt & booties like the ones pictured here.

Faux leather is back and better than ever! I love putting these leggings with a flowy top & plaid blanket scarf. So easy, yet so sophisticated!

black cold shoulder dress

Have you noticed the cold shoulder look is trending? We have many tops with this detail, but I personally love this cold shoulder dress! It has a ribbed texture and is very comfortable.

Calypso Collective is a new jewelry brand we are carrying. It is locally made right here in Raleigh, NC by a recent NCSU graduate! She does an incredible job, doesn’t she?!

Last, but certainly not least, is our navy, tan & white floral dress pictured above in a burgundy color! I love throwing a jean jacket over anything so this jean vest completes this look with a pair of caged-heel booties!

Holiday dresses that are sure to impress

Happy Christmas Season! We know you are busy people, so we wanted to share a few holiday dresses that might make any holiday party shopping you have left a little easier on you {and your wallet}! Take a look and click on the links to take you to our website for more details 🙂

black holiday dresses with tie up

Lace Up Sleeve Dress

Lace Up Sleeve Dress

First up in the lineup of holiday dresses is this more casual dress with tights and knee-high boots, or wear with a cute pair of comfortable booties! We have some really great ones for you to check out! Throw on a statement necklace and you can either wear a cute jacket or treat a blanket scarf as a warm shawl.

black sexy holiday dresses

Long Sleeve Lace Dress

purple sexy holiday dresses

Long Sleeve Lace Dress

If you’re going for a more saucier look, this is the perfect dress for you! The material and texture make for a more formal dress, but looks great with tights and heels or a short heel bootie! If you aren’t feeling this brave, you can always toss a camisole or bandeau underneath to cover up a little more skin 🙂

black knee length holiday dresses

Fitted T-Shirt Dress

black knee length holiday dresses

Fitted T-Shirt Dress

This is my favorite dress that we have in right now! It is so soft, simple & comfortable. You can truly pair this with whatever accessories you want. It is the perfect #LBD. I have paired it with a light-weight plaid infinity scarf and some caged heels {that I also love}! While I believe this dress will look great on any height, I am 5’8″ and as you can see this dress cuts at my knee caps.

navy velvet holiday dresses

High Neck Velvet Shift Dress

Last, but certainly not least, our mock neck velvet dress in navy! I love how this dress feels on and how easily it can be worn with a regular bra and shows no straps. You can pair this neckline with a short or long statement necklace & complete the look with nude or brown heels.

Thanks for dropping by to take a read. Feel free to leave any questions, comments or concerns you may have so we can better deliver material you find interesting. If you feel compelled, please share any of our blog posts as well 🙂
