Black Bomber Jacket

A classic jacket style is the bomber jacket.  Modern twists on the bomber jacket have taken a typically masculine jacket and often convert it into something more feminine and fitted.  Many modern jackets featuring some elements of the bomber jacket in a variety of fabrics and styles.

One of our favorite modern twists on the classic bomber jacket style is the Jersey Bomber Jacket by Zooey by Alice Heller.  This bomber jacket is available in both black and navy. We love the fact that it isn’t leather the traditional bomber jacket fabric.  Since we are always searching for pieces that help you create your own individual style, we were thrilled that this jersey bomber jacket is truly a distinctive piece.  With a fold over collar if you decide to button it up all the way or a wide v neck type collar if you don’t.  My personal favorite detail is the back which arches up giving it a completely unique surprise in back.  Added modern, feminine touches include the oversized buttons, front pockets and a flared waist only in front.   This version by Zooey features thick cotton so it is thicker than your basic sweatshirt, but equally soft which makes it a pleasure to wear.

Another alternative to the basic black bomber jacket is a beautiful Motorcycle Sweater by Velvet by Graham and Spencer.  The Aspen Motorcycle sweater features an off center zipper all the way up to the top of the sweater.  Of course you can’t forget the added details with zipper pockets and epaulets on the shoulders.   This sweater still manages to be soft even though it is made with a wool nylon blend. This fabric of course makes it extremely warm!  With a cropped length, this sweater really does have a modern, distinctive look and is the perfect piece for winter weather.

We also can’t forget mentioning other jacket alternatives like the Cropped Double Breasted Jacket also by Zooey by Alice Heller.  The sister to the Black Bomber Jacket, this jacket features a fitted look with big buttons and a tie belt around the waist with belt loops.  With a wide collar and also available in Black and Navy, this jacket is the perfect piece for fall or warmer winter weather.  This jacket is also made with the heavy sweatshirt fabric that is so soft and machine washable.  This great alternative to the Bomber Jacket is a great modern spin on another classic look of the pea coat.

In short, we love finding great modern versions of classic vintage favorites like the bomber jacket or the pea coat.  These jacket alternatives are great examples of how many vintage elements are making comebacks in modern fashions.  The bomber jacket look will always be a classic traditional style of jacket and we love finding jackets that really bring those classic fashions to the modern shopper with twists of details that add a modern flair to really make each of these pieces statement pieces that will become some of your favorite ways to create your own individual style.

What to Wear on St. Patrick’s Day

This Wednesday Irish or not so Irish it’s probably in your best interest to wear green.  I am still trying to decide just how festive I want to look for a St. Patty’s day party this weekend.  Just in case anyone else is still trying to pick your outfit out.  Below are some of my favorites to choose from.

Laurie B. Emmy Cardigan Sweater in Kelly Green

Laurie B. Emmy Cardigan Sweater in Kelly Green

This Cardigan Sweater is designed by Laurie B. and is the sweater I receive the most compliments on.  I love how it snaps at the neck and then slits open for a cardigan feel.   The pocket detail and long length makes this sweater so comfortable and easy to wear.   I always pair this sweater with the Zooey long sleeve crew neck in white. Considering this sweater is now in the outlet- it’s a steal of a deal. Maybe the luck  of the Irish.

The other shirt I am considering for St. Patrick’s day is this Victoria Front Tie Top designed by Ella Moss.

There are so many details I love about this top.  First I love the ruffles at the neck line and the cuffs.  This flirty top is made of Ella Moss’s modal fabric which is super durable and the ultimate in comfort.

Some of you celebrating St. Patrick’s Day may want to dress it up.  For a dressy night on the town I would suggest the Aggie V Neck Ruffle Dress.

This empire waist dress is so adorable and so unique you will definitely stand out as the best dressed in the crowd.  I love how fun and playful yet flattering the stripes are on this dress.  St. Patty’s Day or not you will be sure to gave good luck the night you wear this dress.  For any other St. Patrick’s day inspirations just visit VintageFringe.com and search by color.  Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!!

Looking chic in wet weather

Being fashionable is a full time job, and rain, snow, and storms can not stand in your way. Normally I don’t have to deal with much weather, but even I have been subjected to some rather wet days{gasp! In San Diego??} as of late. So rather then let the gray skies bring us down, I say lets celebrate the opportunity to look oh so chic in jackets and boots! Every gal needs a pair of wellies, perfect for pulling over jeans or for the more brave, rocking with tall socks and skirts. They are comfortable, functional and of course available in all types of yummy colors and practically every price point. I love Hunter brand boots, and this pink fuchsia color is perfect for adding some cheer to a raining day.{or a sunny day for that matter!}

Ok, now that your feet are covered lets move onto the oh so important jacket. Trench coats are perfect for pulling together an outfit and giving coverage and warmth without adding bulk. These versatile jackets have been around for ages and are therefore available in just about every color, pattern and price point available. If you are wanting to try something a bit more trendy with the pattern, try this Merona Striped Long Trench which is right on with the nautical trend for spring. I love the cheery yellow and crisp white contrast, and it is a total steal!

Lastly, check out this beauty of a jacket, the Zooey Heavy Fleece Coat. The jacket is full of details, adding loads of fringe and style! The hood is perfect for protecting your coiffure, the big buttons, flared sleeves, and drop waist all add to the awesomeness that is this jacket. This would be perfect with skinny jeans and wellies!

Celebrity Style for Everyday

I love to sport designer clothing and glamorous looks everyday.  However, as a busy mom on the go I need to look fabulous in a hurry most mornings.  For inspiration I have found many busy celebrity moms have turned to trendy jackets and fabulous hats to look fashionable even when they are on the go.

So here is my version.  First, I always wear a trendy jacket with straight jeans and tall boots.  As for the jacket, I  love Zooey’s Bomber Jacket.

Zooey's Bomber Jacket

Zooey's Bomber Jacket

This jacket is so soft and comfortable it  feels like a sweatshirt, but looks fitted and trendy and fashionable.  I love the cropped look in back which gives it an added bit of flair.  To keep with the military theme I wear a military style hat but with a different jacket you could wear a trucker or knit hat as well.  Another great jacket example is Zooey’s version of the Pea coat, the Cropped Double Breasted Jacket.  This jacket goes great with that military look.

With this look I can be ready in as little as 15 minutes and not be afraid to run into anyone I know as the grocery store or gas station.  What about you, what is your favorite on the go look?

Velvet and Zooey Designer Boatneck Tops!!

Designer Boatneck tops have a classic vintage look that I adore.  Two great examples of the perfect boatneck top that also has a modern twist or fringe are the Daree top by Velvet and the Satin Trim Boatneck by Zooey.

Velvet Daree Wide Sleeve Boatneck Top

Velvet Daree Boatneck Top

By this time of year I am usually trying to shop for tops that I could probably still wear in winter but that will also work into spring.  I love Velvet’s Daree Wide Sleeve Boatneck Top because this is exactly the kind of top that can do both.  I wear this top in Green with a long sleeve white shirt underneath it in the Winter and come Spring I can wear it alone.  My sister owns this top in the other color milk which is a beautiful ivory that looks great with a dark jean and brown boots.  Part of Velvet’s Slinky Rayon collection, the fabric drapes your body perfectly.  It is loose enough you can add a belt for a tunic look, but you can also wear it without a belt and it looks great too.

Zooey Satin Sleeve Boatneck Top

Zooey Satin Sleeve Boatneck Top

The Boatneck top with Satin Trim by Zooey is my ultimate night on the town top.  This regal looking fabric is hemp with satin detail on the sleeve.  We love the fitted look at the waist and the satin contrast on the sleeves.  The hemp fabric has an amazing softness and durability and even though it may not look like it this top is machine washable.  Available at Vintage Fringe  in a dark brown (ebony) or a rich plum (phantom).
