    Going along with the modern grunge theme, studs are huge this fall! Would you be daring enough to rock this edgy trend?

    I love how bold studded denim is! My goal is to wear either a studded denim jacket or shorts in the upcoming month. Go back in time with these vintage inspired looks..

    Think this is all too much for you? Add a touch of edge to any look with some studded accessories! I especially love the studded collars. They're the perfect combination of grundge and prep!

    The focus of my most recent fashion board meeting was shoes! Everyone has been loving the combat boots, especially the studded ones. Studded oxford style flats and heels are also making an appearance this fall!

Behind the Scenes of BP Fashion Board

It's almost that time of year again to apply for your local Nordstrom's BP Fashion Board! If you absolutely love fashion, or are even just interested in it, you should definitely apply! From talking about current trends and the history of Nordstrom to putting looks together from the floor and designing our own fashion lines, Fashion Board is tons of fun! Don't worry you don't have to be a fashion expert or an amazing designer to be on the board; you just have to have passions and be interested in learning more about fashion. 

Fashion-Design-Clothing

Although the applications aren't up yet, just a little pre-warning that you will have to create a project to be on the board. There are tons of different options for this. Just remember to be creative and make it unique! For my project last year, I decided to do a scrapbook of my favorite spring trends...

Maybe a scrapbook is your thing too! Cut out outfits from magazines, find colors and patterns that appeal to you, and maybe even add your own sketches! Or you could do an inspiration board...

Oh.oho

You could also create your own little fake fashion line. We're currently doing this right now and it's a lot of fun! First, find inspiration from magazines or websites to figure out what kind of look your line will be. My friend Olivia created a line of dress accessories to make a dress look different every time you wore it. That way you don't have to buy a different dress for every dance! I decided to do a beachy, bohemian line filled with flowy, light clothes to throw on over a bathing suit at the beach. Here's my inspiration:

Next, draw your own sketches. I mixed earthy neutral tones with bright colors and incorporated a lot of crochet and lace. Here are some of mine so far including a crochet overlay dress with different colored banded dresses that you can wear underneath it as well as a fringe bikini.

And finally, come up with a name. I decided to name mine Free to Be after a campaign against sex trafficking at my school and said that I would donate a portion of the proceeds of my line to the cause.

Other ideas include taking pictures of yourself in your favorite outfit, designing and sewing your own piece, and many more! Stay tuned for applications being up on the blog soon!

 

XOXO,

Happy Tuesday! Since this is my first post, I figured it would be a good idea for you all to get to know me a little better. So, basically, I'm from New England and have lived there my whole life. I'm a Junior at my local high school where spend ninety five percent of the day wishing it was the summer or I was in New York City, my favorite place in the world.

Gahh! I cannot begin to express how badly I want to be there! 

Anyway, for my first post today,  I thought I would spend some time talking about music and fashion and how together they are taking over the world, or at least mine anyway!!

Recently, I went to a Matt & Kim concert (If you don't know them check them out here and I must say, everyone was looking grand.

leave the hoodies in the closet!

Do you like dresses? Do you like sweaters? Do you always want to be warm and cozy?!

INTRODUCING THE Roxy 'Street Chic' Sweater Dress ! Its a combo of a sweater and a dress, absolutely PERFECT for the fall and winter!

This dress could be rocked with leggings  or a cute colored scarf so you could keep even warmer!

This Roxy Lightweight Printed Scarf   would go perfectly against the Seaspray colored sweater dress.

So leave the hoodies at home, be daring and wear a dress in the colder months!!!!!!!!!

ROCK THE ROXY LADIES!

here, there and everywhere!

The UGG Australia Boot.

Whether its the 'Classic Tall' Boot or the 'Cardy' Classic Knit Boot,everyone has a pair of UGG's. We all know that UGG's are not just for the winter and fall seasons. They are year round comfy fashionable boots that can be worn with just about ANYTHING. And now, exclusively at Nordstrom, theres a new style in town! The UGG Australia 'Classic Short' Metallic Logo Boot. They are just casual enough to wear with a pair of jeans or leggings, but still give your shoes an extra POP  with the metallic writing!

I live in my UGG boots and have had the same ones for about 3 years, they are the best thing that have happened to the shoe world!

WATCH OUT EVERYONE, THIERRY MUGLER HAS ARRIVED!!!

Angel  

Angel, Thierry Mugler's new fragrance! And honestly if you are deciding to go holiday shopping early, it will be the BEST gift for your girlfriends, your mom or even to yourself! I had never noticed Thierry Mugler before, but he is taking the fragrance department by storm, and I'm loving it!!!!

What is your favorite fragrance for this season?


p.s. 7 DAYS TILL NEW MOON!!!

Stylish in the Rain

I love the rain! I love the smell just before a downpour and the glow it produces on the pavement once the storm has past. So naturally I am a fan of rain weather gear. Rain trenches are perfect for those in between seasons - spring and fall - when you need just a little bit of warmth and protection from the outdoor elements. Nothing is as classic as the khaki trench Audrey Hepburn dons to kiss George Peppard in Breakfast At Tiffany's. However, to give it a modern spin, punch up your trench with a bright vibrant color! And don't forget to complete your look with some awesome rain boots. 

 Some ideas to try: Deep Plum Trench Coat by Jessica Simpson and Cute "Matching" Rain Boots by Chooka

Do you guys have any favorite rainy-day staples?

Fee Fi FAUX Fum

Here you come! This new glamorous Rubbish® Faux Shearling Hoody will bring you right into the winter with out fear of the cold! With it's warm plush fleece inside you'll be ready to hit the winter while still looking FIERCE! The single button-and-loop adds to it's girly charm and still makes it a flirty jacket without being too harsh. Personally, I LOVE this jacket and it goes with just about anything which is an extra bonus! Winter is not just about bundling up now-a-days, its all about the faux girls! With this new jacket from BP. everyone will see you coming!!!

Plaid Frenzy!

Ladies, is it me or does plaid just SCREAM comfort! Plaid could be dressed up or down, it's a staple that everyone needs in their closet, especially for the fall! This new Sam & Max Plaid Cotton Tunic could be worn with a pair of skinny or boot cut jeans and matched with some great leather boots. The new Miz Mooz 'Kaila' Buckled Leather Boot is perfect! This is my ultimate fall outfit, I could wear it to just hang out or to go out with my friends! These comfy tops could also be paired with some sleek black leggings and a pair of cute Keds for a more relaxed look! How do you rock the plaid?

Greetings from Chicago!

Hey guys! My name is Molly from Chicago (a member of the Oak Brook Fashion Board) and I am so stoked to be apart of the 09-10 BP FB Blogging Team! (Especially as a stress relief from my crazy senior year.) Every Tuesday and Thursday, I’ll be blogging to you about things that inspire me in the world of fashion and trends, and I can’t wait to hear what you all have to say!!! My all time favorite fashion icons include the classic - but always trendy - Audrey Hepburn (Breakfast At Tiffany’s anyone?!), Jackie O., and Anne Hathaway. I am both a chocolate and a coffee-aholic (my wallet definitely suffers from my excessive rationalizing of buying lattes nearly everyday).  I love to travel and shop in new cities. When I have time I like to scour People, Vogue, and Elle looking for great style ideas, while listening to anything Green Day, Regina Spektor, and All Time Low.  Right now I am living in my Roxanne 7 skinny jeans, ballet flats and layered Rubbish Ts with a bright warm cashmere scarf. Unfortunately, the cold weather has already arrived here in the Midwest and layering is essential to keep reasonably warm if venturing outside. Eventually, I want to use the fashion sense I’ve gleaned from FB to be a well put together news broadcaster.


But I want to hear from you guys – what are your staple fashion pieces for fall?
