The Season’s Silver Lining

The season’s silver lining from Twisted Silver comes in the form of six treasured designs that just got silverized: Horse Bit bracelet, Life ring, Luxe necklace, Apple earrings, Fusion Long earrings and Mod necklace. 

Tammy at A Mom in Red High Heels says that the silverized Luxe necklace “warrants an attitude of high society.”

Heather at Fabulous Fun Finds says about the Luxe “…nothing sparkles quite like the luster of silver during the holidays.”

Angie at Seven Clown Circus says that the silverized pieces are “excellent basic pieces, great for gift giving.”

An Urban Darling’s Take on the Modern Classic

Urban Darling stylists style REAL people... like you

Urban Darling, Corinne, is back as our guest blogger dishing up her take on the Modern Classic look:

The “classics” are timeless pieces of your wardrobe a woman should never be without. Why? Because darling, the fashion icons throughout the decades are just as timeless as the pieces that they donned. Like who? Coco Chanel, Katharine Hepburn, and Audrey Hepburn. While, we all love looking to the past for style inspiration, let’s take these historic fashion icon trend setters and turn up the heat on making the “classics” modern. Ready, set, go…

Big Sunglasses – Coco, Madonna and all modern day celebrities wear big sunglasses to hide from the Paparazzi.  To flip the classic into modern, consider going for a tortoise shell or a smokey colorway. How about a new shape rather than square or circle? Tempting, I know!

Pearls – anyone will tell you that pearls are a staple, but why be boring and predictable? Zzzzzzz. In comes The Creekwalk line from Twisted Silver. PRAISE THE STYLE GODS, they heard your prayers. Glass pearls from Japan salvaged for your wearing pleasure. And, seriously, if you are feeling matchy-matchy, wear the bracelet too.

The Nautical Striped Top – Don’t get me started on this. I have been in love with this shirt since before I was born.  I have 7 in my drawer right now ( I counted)

Skinny Jeans – darlings, if you don’t have a pair of skinny (at a minimum straight leg) jeans in your closet I can’t even say. Go get some right now. Hi-end, low-end, it matters not to me. The boot-cut and flair are still ok, but hid them in the back of your closet until they come back around.   Try Old Navy or Neiman Marcus

Trench Coat – Ok, I am not sure if you were reading this far down or not. But yes, a trench is on the list and yes not too many people are sporting them these days, at least not in my neck of the woods. That being said, there are some cute options out there. London Fog and Burberry are the monsters that own the market on trenches, as they should, they know how to construct a coat. The trick: buy one that is short in length. The long coats are ok if you live in Minneapolis or Chicago, but most other places the shorter 33” version will do.

Ballet Flats – adorable, every woman must have one pair. You may purchase a paid anywhere, Target has them, Kohl’s has them and every major department store has them

Now, wrap up this entire look and OMG you are a Modern Classic.

What to Pack for Your Thanksgiving Trip

Catherine Horgan, stylist extraordinaire and founder of [My] Style Files , gives her tips on what to pack in case you’re traveling for the Thanksgiving holiday:

“I am not only in disbelief that Thanksgiving is next week, but also taken aback that December is two weeks from today. How did that happen?

Time is speeding ahead, whether we choose to play that game or not. So, best to be prepared. If you are traveling for the Thanksgiving holiday, you’ll want to plan your wardrobe now to make packing easier next week. While I count 15 outfit combinations out of the pieces below, you may only need 4 to 5 easy, chic outfits for the upcoming holiday.

These days, I love the comfort of leggings (cotton/lycra and leather) and skinny cords. They stretch with movement and are easy to layer over. Cashmere, wool or cotton long cardigans are perfect to keep in the warmth. Add in a sweater dress, as well as a military jacket for a little structure. The ever-important black long-sleeve sheer jersey tee can, and should, be worn with everything. Throw in pattern with a leopard print fur cropped jacket and a colorful scarf. As for accessories, make it super easy … riding boots and military boots work with almost everything this season. Pack pieces of jewelry that can function in multiple ways, such as a necklace working as a belt + bracelet, or wrapped around your neck and worn as a choker. With a dark color palette, go bright with vintage earrings and rings. An easy-to-find-your-things-in handbag is essential. And don’t forget your arm warmers!”

The Twisted Silver pieces shown above:  XO Opera (the long necklace in the middle), Belt bracelet (brass bracelet to the left) and Austin cuff (leather cuff to the left)

Guest Blogger: The ROCKIN Urban Darling, Corinne Phipps

Corinne Phipps, founder of Urban Darling

Our guest blogger today is Corinne Phipps, founder of Urban Darling.  Urban Darling is a revolutionary wardrobe styling company for everybody and any body with stylists across the nation.  Thinking stylists are just for big celebrities?  Think again, friends.  The darlings at Urban Darling style REAL people: tall, petite, full figured, post-baby… post POST workout regimen and everything in between.  Better than personal shoppers, these experts apply their trademarked Purge Merge Splurge™ method:

  • Purge: They dive right into your closet to eliminate what doesn’t work, recommend tailoring where needed to save your checkbook, and donate clothing that is outdated, ill-fitting, unflattering, or over-worn.
  • Merge: Once your wardrobe has been edited, they will show you how to make the most of your current clothes and accessories, mixing and matching your current pieces to create new combinations/outfits.
  • Splurge: Then they show you how to find those great new pieces that reflect your style, budget, and life to fill in the gaps!

And to keep us all in the stylish loop, the Urban Darling eMag features fantastic articles on the latest trends and finds to help us all look our most fabulous best.

So what current trend does Urban Darling’s own Corinne rock?  Rocker Sophisticate, of course.  Here’s her take:

As a head banging, hard rocker of the late 1980’s, I know what it is to be a Rocker Sophisticate, or as I like to say “Rocker girl all grown-up”. And believe me; now that I am a wardrobe stylist, I am definitely hanging on to my roots because I can. Fall/Winter are the best seasons to try out new looks. Why? Because darling, the sweaters, the boots, the jackets are prime for experimental style.

How to look like a Rocker girl all grown-up:
Start with the boots. Frye’s which has been around since 1863 and they know boots. Try the Veronica Slouch. The buckles and heavy heel make it rocker-esque, but the shape and structure are still feminine.

Working our way up to Jeans. If you have not bought a pair of premium skinny jeans, good grief, try these ones on, for me, please. DL1961 are the jeans that will change your life, no matter what size you are. You’ll never have to worry about these jeans – sagging, bagging or stretching out. And, any good Rocker Chic knows that a sagging bum is not good for your look. These jeans will go great tucked into the boots.

Moving on up. Go ahead and wear a new “old” Guns N’ Roses or Bon Jovi t-shirt or something more Rocker Sophisticate: a Boston t-shirt. Add a killer military jacket (easily found on Piperlime, Nordstrom or Target) Not a jacket kinda girl, no problem.  A chunky cardigan will do the trick too.

Now, any good Rocker Chic knows that the crowning point of the look lies in the accessories. Thankfully our friends over at Twisted Silver make us look good.

My favorites: Attitude Necklace or Hardware Necklace layered with the Horse Bit Convertible silverized for a edgy beginning. And any good Rocker knows, it’s all about the bangles. I don’t leave home without my Justice Cuff silverized with Funky Silver bracelet – and I wear them on the same wrist. Unless I am styling a client, then I only wear one.

Wear with caution darling, as your life will take on new meaning when you take a walk on the wild side.

Fashion Envoy Spotlight: Sara Paul

Twisted Silver Fashon Envoy Sara Paul

Introducing our art and travel loving Fashion Envoy, Sara Paul:

“Hi my name is Sarah Paul and I am a senior in the San Francisco area. I love art-especially drawing faces! I play lacrosse and absolutely love to travel. After (and during?) college, I plan on living abroad all over the world. My greatest aspiration in life is to become a doctor.”

Her key trend is the Soft Military look.  She likes taking masculine elements and feminizing them in a tailored kind of way.  She sees a jacket with military styling – like symmetrical buttons as being the foundation of the look.  That, and BOOTS: from traditional lace-up to riding boots.

Her favorite Twisted Silver pieces in the Soft Military trend?  Heist necklace, XO earrings and Swiss Army ring.
