10 Decades of Beauty

Wanna see something cool?  This is a seamless transition of 10 decades of beauty trends in less than 90 seconds!

Cut Video’s “100 Years of Beauty in 1 Minute” takes a model through 10 transformations, revealing the hair and makeup styles of years past. The clip speeds by quickly, but it takes a team of styling professionals to mold a pretty girl into each decade’s beauty standard.

As the looks range from the bobbed pin curls and cupid lips of the 1920s to the bouffant and crimson smile of the 1950s, the video also explores popular expressions of femininity. A woman in the 1960s might sport a peace sign along with bright blue eye shadow, and a more recent style of glossy lips likely demanded a selfie in 2010.

It’s no secret that hair and makeup styles evolve over the years, and we’re broadly influenced by popular media, conforming to certain trends to fit in. But with the stance on what is considered beautiful changing so drastically every 10 years or so, maybe we can hold off on jumping on each and every fashion bandwagon. As someone who irreparably fried her hair, I recommend not beating your appearance into submission simply for a style that will fade. Also, that picture of you sticking out your tongue and making a horn symbol with your hand could haunt you on the Internet forever.

As for today’s beauty standards? Looks like they don’t mean much, and they’re likely to mean even less tomorrow.

Winter Skirts

Our shop is bursting at the seams with wooly winter skirts.  Wearing the wrong type of skirt during the cold winter months can leave you feeling more cold than chic. Choosing the right skirt and accompanying accessories will leave you feeling both warm and fashion forward.  Below are three great choices for the winter.

1bigblue

Winter Blues Skirt – $28.00 – 1970’s -Extra Small

Pick a skirt made of a heavier material. Sheer, lightweight fabrics look out of place and will only make you colder.  Opt for heavier materials like wool, velvet and leather.  A maxi-skirt in Winter will give you the least amount of hassle.  Many maxi-skirts can even be worn with minimal to no leg protection.  Pick out a skirt that extends somewhere between your mid-calf and the top of your foot, a few inches above your ankle. The longer the skirt, the warmer you’ll be.

Beige Wrap Skirt – $28.00 – 1970’s – Small

A midi-length (knee-length) skirt will give you the greatest amount of flexibility. Midi skirts can be made to look professional, trendy, or flirty, depending on how you accessorize them. You will need additional leg protection to keep your calves warm, however. Knee-high socks, legging and tall boots are cozy choices for a midi-skirt.  You can really be playful with your leg-wear while wearing a midi-skirt.

PencilSkirtWOOLY

Wool Pencil Skirt – $29.00 – 1960’s – Small

Although the narrow shape of a pencil skirt can restrict the movement of the wearer, the pencil skirt will give you the greatest amount warmth due to reduced ventilation.    Pencil skirts are made to look professional as they fall to the knee and are super tailored for a close fit.  Pencil skirts in the winter look cute and will keep you warm with tucked in long-sleeve tops, textured scarves and nylons.  Don’t forget a long winter coat for extra warmth.

Snowy Spring Trends

Winter.  The cool air is the perfect time for reflecting on the coziest trends.  Whether it’s bold new silhouettes or experimentation with new materials, we are so excited about the possibilities that designers have presented for Winter 2014 – early Spring 2015. Here is a short list of the coziest, cold weather trends of 2014/2015.

1Never thought you would be taking a sartorial cue from Hugh Hefner, did you?  This season, the house coat makes a major comeback. Everyone from Altuzarra to Richard Chai showed toppers that could double as bathrobes.

The ’60s are back in a major way. Maybe a bunch of designers got together and decided to binge-watch the latest season of Mad Men because we are seeing a lot of mini skirts, knee-high boots, and accessories that remind us of yesteryear. Whatever the reason, we’re happy that the ’60s are swinging back our way.
3For fall knits, nothing is too big or too intricate. And that’s the way we like it. From cozy pants at Marc Jacobs and Céline that promise to alleviate the need for tights, to similarly warm varieties at Stella McCartney, the sweater is no longer relegated to the top half.
4I like the idea of the oversize trend sticking around for fall mainly because it’s the best way to hide an extra few pounds. If this terrible winter has taught me anything, it’s that I am unwilling to trek to the gym in the snow. All hail bigger sweaters, pants, and coats. The bigger the better!
5Your feet can rejoice because they are officially getting a break from heels. Designers have declared sneakers as the footwear of the moment. Hopefully models will have surer footing down the runway moving forward. That would really make things go a lot faster.
