Holiday Garb Recap

 It's Saturday again, ladies! Where did the week go?
It's hard to believe that Christmas is so close...
Just five days to go. This week has been all about
h o l i d a y   w e a r
With such a wide variety of options and so many
different styles and silhouettes to choose from,
it can be a little tricky to know where to start.
Since today is Saturday, let's go ahead and do
a quick recap of all the major points and themes
to remember when taking on holiday dressing.

Don't Underestimate the Power of Separates
Do you have several different occasions to dress for?
Or do you not want to sink a lot of time and effort
into a party dress that you might only wear once?
Go with separates. It doesn't have to be hard.
Just start with four basic foundation pieces:
A classic silk blouse, a funky luxe sweater, 
a brocade skirt, and a pair of metallic pants.
These four will easily mix and match with items
already in your own closet. And the best part?
The four are usually quite versatile. You don't just
have to restrict them to party wear. Try jazzing up
the normal office ensemble with a bit of cheer,
or add some punchy fun to a weekend outfit.

The Perfect Party Dress
There are so many styles this season. So many patterns.
And so many colors. From the classic Little Black Dress
to vivid florals and eye-catching geometric designs,
designers really outdid themselves this holiday season.
So if you're on the hunt for a dress, just have fun with it
and don't stress--styles have ranged from mini-dresses
to full-length ballgowns to mannish jumpsuits.
The amount of options can be a bit intimidating at first,
but it's mostly freeing. So be free, and have fun with it!

And don't forget... enjoy yourself.
Embrace the dazzle and the shine of the season.
You look absolutely smashing.

Our Pick: Party Dresses

Thus far this week, we've only touched on separates.
Blouses, sweaters, skirts, and pants. But no holiday blog
would be complete without one day of party dresses.
So far this season, styles have ranged all across the board.
From classic black to bold and sweeping color schemes,
from mini-length cocktail dresses to long and full ballgowns,
form vivid florals to angular geometrics, lace, and sequins.
 With so many choices, it's hard to know where to start...
but at the same time, it's also hard to go wrong.
Here are a few of our favorite holiday styles,
that are in the boutique right now!
A simple and classic dress style in 
eye-catching fuchsia, with black lace trim.
The result? Sophisticated, and yet playful.
This beauty gives a whole new definition
to the idea of bright winter patterns!
The kaleidoscope of colors is sure to
add a burst of energy to any party.
Ah, here's one that's more comforting.
A soft black knit with a jeweled collar.
Minimalistic, understated, and classy.

Our Picks: Holiday Skirts and Trousers

So far, we've only covered the top layer: blouses and sweaters.
Those wardrobe staples that can be mixed, matched, and interchanged.
Today it's time to bring it all together, and up the combo power
of the holiday pieces... exponentially. And the best part?
These pieces are versatile--they offer the perfect amount of
holiday cheer, whether it be to a party outfit or the work wardrobe.
Here are our three favorite styles... in the boutique now!
The Embellished Skirt
Perfect with tights and ankle booties,
or a pair of chic heels, this skirt provides the
perfect foundation--mixing and matching well
with almost any sweater or blouse.
The Brocade Skirt
More structured and posh than its cousin the embellished skirt, 
this style is particularly perfect for day-to-evening outfits. 
Wear it to the office, and then wear it to the party!
The Metallic Pants
Whether you opt for a casual pair of embossed jeans,
a pair of classic cut trousers, or flowy and bohemian pants,
metallic is the way to go. All you need is a simple sweater
or a silk blouse and a pair of heels, and you're good to go!

It's Thursday, ladies, and Kapi is redesigning all the displays
in the boutique! Craving a bit of fashion inspiration?
Need to see a few sequins and a dash of glitter to get you in
the holiday spirit? Then just swing by and take a peek!
There's a pot of fresh brewed coffee waiting for you.

Our Picks: Holiday Knits

Let's continue the theme of separates with regard to holiday wear. Yesterday, we discussed a few blouse ideas. But not everyone 
loves button downs all the time. A few (myself included) 
also love a good sweater. Remember, like before, the trick
is to find a cut or style that you already love and then just 
opt for more sumptuous and decadent fabrics and embellishments.
Whether you love snug cable knit, oversized and chunky knit,
or sequins galore... a sweater might be the way to go.
But if what pops into your head is an image of the dreaded
"Ugly Christmas Sweater", just think again... these holiday
separates on display in the boutique now hardly fit that bill.
A furry collar atop a metallic threaded zip-up cardigan.
Versatile--it transitions well from work to evening out.
Sequins galore... because why not? This cardigan is sure 
to turn heads, no matter the holiday occasion. Elegance!
Chunky, oversized cable knitting with glamorous sleeve detailing.
Cute, casual, and oh so very very comfortable. Perfect for 
adding a bit of sparkle and shine to a casual weekend shindig.

Our Picks: Holiday Fashion

One of the easiest ways to conquer holiday dressing
is by building a solid foundation of separates.
Start with several core wardrobe items that easily be
mixed and matched with one another, and build from there.
This method not only provides a variety of possible outfits
(hello combo power) but also allows you to start from
styles and cuts that you are already familiar with...
and that you know look good on you! To be honest,
holiday separates are not as foreign and impossible
as they would first seem. Find a cut or style that you
really like, and then opt for a more decadent fabric.
Ta-da. That's all there is to it. Here are a few examples 
from the boutique to help get you off to a good start.
If you're unsure, a silk blouse is always a good place to start.
Silk is luxurious, comfortable, and definitely holiday ready.
Choose a deep, wintery hue that compliments your skin tone,
and then pair with either a skirt or trousers--so simple!
Ruffles are always festive, a white button down is always a staple,
and this holiday season is no exception. The fantastic part
about a ruffled white blouse? It works for more than just parties.
What better way to jazz up your normal work wardrobe than ruffles?
Feeling tremendously festive? Try a bold gold button down!
It's loud, it's bright, and it certainly speaks for itself.
For a full flavor of funky fashion, season with a dash of plaid.
Try a short black skirt for going out, or jeans for the weekend.

It's Tuesday, ladies, and it's time for the Last Chance Rack!

delicious fresh brewed coffee waiting just for you!

Color and Pattern Recap

Saturday already? Since it's the end of the week,
let's go ahead and do a quick recap of all the major points
we covered. This week's topic: winter patterns and colors.
One of the biggest fashion fibs of all time is that
only dark and muted colors are suitable for wintertime.
Ba humbug. One of the easiest ways to brighten up
you winter wardrobe is with bright patterns and colors.
And here are a few simple ways to make it happen...

Choose a Focal Piece
Maybe it's a brightly colored scarf, 
or a boldly patterned topper.
But whatever the piece may be, 
take it and make it the focal point
of your outfit. No extra fussing required.
Complement by keeping the rest of the outfit low key.

Mix and Match
Feeling extraordinarily adventurous?
Care to try your hand at a bit of pattern mixing?
And this season's stylists suggest mixing busy with bold.
Take an all over design, and contrast with a graphic print.
It sounds random, but looks awesome when done right.
Here's a refresher on how to keep pattern mixing cohesive.

Go Monochrome
Start with a vivid pattern, and then supplement it
by choosing coordinating pieces in similar color and hue.
For example... a indigo, white, and ice blue patterned top.
Pair with indigo trousers and an icy blue blazer. Or, for
a winter white approach, try a white coat and white clutch.
-
Fancy learning a scarf knot or two?
We're hosting a scarf workshop at the boutique today!
Join us at 1pm for coffee and scarf knots. Don't worry...
there are plenty of scarves in the boutique, but you're
welcome to bring your own as well. The more the merrier!
