The Total Look is the Total Package for Fashion Enthusiasts

For lovers of fashion and history, the Cincinnati Art Museum’s Rudi Gernreich retrospective is a dream come true, especially if your dreams are a cross between a swinging ‘60s dance party, a fashion magazine editorial, and a passionate women’s rights rally. Yes? Well then, welcome to The Total Look. The Total Look focuses on Gernreich's work throughout his career, which was heavily influenced by feminism and his collaboration with model and muse Peggy Moffitt (whose archive...

Work // Double Blog Lives

Sometimes I feel like I’m living multiple blog lives. I’ve been running around doing interviews, taking pictures, and posting content 4-5 times per week--just not here. That blogging takes place over at CincinnatiMagazine.com and CincinnatiWeddingMagazine.com, but I want to share all the nonsense I talk about there with y’all, too! [caption id="attachment_5323" align="aligncenter" width="640"] An unexpectedly cool event at The Renaissance downtown[/caption] A lot of it is really fun: Recently, I went to a bridal fashion show...

Hey there! Here’s a little bit of what I’ve been up to lately: Trying the ski thang. Fine, we only went tubing but it still counts! Reflecting. #yoga #poolside #anotherdayinparadise A photo posted by thestylesample (@thestylesample) on Feb 19, 2015 at 2:30pm PST Making puffy new friends: I make dough, but don't call me Doughboy #checkyoself #icecubewisdom #cmsweetvictory A photo posted by thestylesample (@thestylesample) on Feb 10, 2015 at 4:53pm PST Going away to Mexico!

#TBT to The Designing Life, 80’s Fashion at its Finest

There’s not much I love more than authentic vintage fashion. Something about the history, the stories, the nostalgia, the what-were-they-thinking excites me and makes me wonder what about today’s styles will look absolutely ridiculous in 10 years’ time.

Current Obsession // Block Print Scarves

Y’all know I love a good blanket-scarf (aka blarf). Oversized scarves can sometimes come across as pretentious--I blame the French--but for me, they’re a necessity. I can’t explain how or why, but if my neck gets cold, I’m guaranteed to be sick within 48 hours. It sounds ridiculous, but I swear it never fails. One day while researching travel communities, I came across Taarik scarves and was instantly transfixed. The bold block prints, the bright colors,...

Shopping // Lace is for Lovers

I’m not really the fancy underwear type, at least not any more. I worked at Victoria’s Secret when I was in college and managed to amass an impressive collection of lace and satin and mesh delicates in every color of the rainbow. They were mostly uncomfortable and definitely impractical. A few years ago, I got rid of pretty much everything that wasn’t cotton or lace and didn’t fit into my black, gray, and red color scheme....
