Stacks on Stacks on Stacks

Leandra Medine is undoubtedly a pioneer of sorts. With the birth of her blog The Man Repeller she showed us that not only was it okay that we freely express ourselves through apparel that would typically make any man scratch their heads in wonderment, but it was also okay to let our freak flags hang high. The thing I love most about the Man Repeller is the effortlessness and confidence she exudes through her exotic fashions; a confidence that I believe to be irresistibly (even to the opposite sex!). Of the various trends, tutorials, and sartorial pictures that her site has provided, one of the most notable features her blog was the introduction of the “arm party.”

Personally I am more of a statement necklace or earring girl but one does not simply deny the sartorial intrigue the arm party provides for an outfit. Although I have yet to come up with a successful arm party for myself, experimenting with bracelets and rings at the cash wraps of my favorite stores have provided me with insight to creating a cohesive look. It all starts with a theme (typically what you would describe your personal style) and it builds from there. For this set I chose a bohemian theme because when I look for jewelry, pieces that remind me of youth and freedom are what appeal to me. When creating this look make sure that you are purchasing/creating items that are uniquely you so when people check out your fully loaded arm they’re getting to know you as a person, not what was sold as a set at Forever 21. Have fun and experiment!

Collared & Chained

Although I was never required to wear a uniform throughout my primary and secondary schooling, nothing fills me with more nostalgia for my childhood than a peter pan collar. First introduced on the fall runways in 2010, peter pan collars have undergone various renovations in order to make this look novel. Currently you can see peter pan collars adorned with bold spikes and eye-catching gem embellishments, and even crafted in unique fabrics such as lace and leather. My favorite innovation to the collar is the peter pan collar necklace. This necklace allows you to put a schoolgirl spin to any outfit. I just recently bought one from Macy’s (unfortunately it’s sold out online), which I am excited to pair with lace shirts, peplum dresses, and juxtapose with a leather tank. What is your opinion of the trend. I’d love to hear.
