Fashion // Try These Fall 2015 Trends Now

With fashion month under our collective designer belts and Winter a not-so-distant memory (hallelu!), it might seem weird to talk about Fall when everyone is so desperate for Spring. Real talk, though: It’s not exactly hot outside. In fact, this transition period is one of the few times of year when we can mix winter and summer gear and not look completely crazy. Wanna wear a tank top with a faux fur chubby and boots?...

Style // Fuzzy Wuzzy Wuz a Sweater

There are sweaters and then there are sweaters. I enjoy a good cuddle, so for me, the cozier the better. After pulling this vintage mohair sweater for a photo shoot months ago, I was innocently browsing at Hi-Bred when I just happened to see it was still available. It was fate, y’all. I wore it with a satin skirt in the same creamy shade, vintage flower earrings, and caramel colored boots and tried to refrain...

Shopping // Step Up Your Gift Game at the CAC’s Revamped Gift Shop

For some people, the shopping at the museum is just as important as the art at the museum. I confess: I am one of those people. So it should come as no surprise that I was excited to see the Contemporary Arts Center’s revamped gift shop. At 300 square feet, the new shop’s footprint is smaller than the previous retail space (that area is now a gorgeously appointed café), but is now front and center, boasting...

CLOSED Win a Free Clothe Ohio Sweatshirt!

This is how you Clothe Ohio: Step 1: Get together with a group of fantastic blogger ladies (aka the girls from Thread Cincinnati) and style up your favorite Clothe Ohio t-shirt. Step 2: Prance around OTR on a random Sunday morning taking pictures of each other while giving whoever happens to be behind the camera your best Tyra-approved smize. Step 3: Give away a sweatshirt so someone else can enjoy! [caption id="attachment_5343" align="aligncenter" width="640"] I wore my shirt with...

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...

Photo Diary// Mexican Sunsets and Doughboy Friends

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.
