The Art of Layering

Alas, we have come to the time of the year where we must consider warmth as an important variable in our outfit selecting each morning. I woke up this morning knowing that there was a cold front coming in (my husband might as well be a part-time weatherman;) but boy! I was not expecting cold versus cool--eh, I suppose that's why it's called a cold front. Yuck.
In a last minute scramble, I rummaged through my closet and put together the closest ensemble I had to remain semi-warm: cardigan, jeggings, and boots.

Once I arrived at the store later on this morning I felt like this would be an appropriate topic for today's blog!

Layers are key when trying to fight off the cold when you're out and about but don't want to burn up while sitting at the office. If you have a more casual work environment jeans with boots and a sweater are essentials to looking casual chic. A chunky scarf will aid in keeping warm while braving the outdoors.
Now if you're looking for a more polished look, a leather jacket is key to completing your outfit. Now as for keeping your legs and toes warm a good pair of leggings partnered with these chic quilted rain boots (only $58!) create the perfect put together combo.

Just remember to keep your layers slim to the body unless you're looking for the super cozy comfy look with a chunky sweater. If you layer like these two looks shown here you'll look ready to go and prepared to conquer any weather that comes your way-- all while looking effortlessly fashionable!

Looks of the Week

 Charlize Theron looking gorge in this trompe l'oeil shift dress. Black and white is always such a great statement! 
 It's been so great seeing Julianne Hough on the red carpet these days! I think she's doing an amazing job of keeping it youthful yet classy at all of her events leading up to the Footloose release!
 I love this. I'm actually jealous of how well Kim pulled off this unexpected color combo. I'm a huge fan of 'tennis ball yellow' and it looks amazing with this teal pencil skirt!
 Mrs. Richie-Madden running errands looking FAB. She always has this effortless way of looking so 'cool'. Love the shoes and the hemline on the skirt!
Sparkle shorts = loooooove. Another effortless look for this week's blog. Selena rocked this look and definitely mastered the 'I'm not trying too hard'.

Missoni Madness

If you aren't familiar with the recent craze around Missoni items then you have seriously been living under a rock.
Target recently had a collaboration with the actual designer which lead to complete chaos for the mass retailer-- empty shelves, crashed website, angry label-obsessed shoppers, and a media frenzy over the lack of preparedness Target had for this onslaught of demand. However, no one can disregard Target's brilliance behind the concept of giving budget conscious (and unconscious) fashionistas coveted designer labels at a Target price.
You're probably wondering why a fab'rik girl is chatting about another company's recent concept. Well, it's because the Missoni madness has spread-- everywhere. The brand is widely recognized for it's signature zig-zag print, which other companies have picked up that this is the reason behind the hype.
Just looking around our store (per the picture;) you can find items inspired by this accomplished Italian fashion house.
Who wants in on the madness?

Tricky Trend: Leopard Print

What's the trend we've been spotting (ha) all season? Leopard prints of course!

While this has been a trend rocked by many fashionistas over the years-- it has definitely made its way into the mainstream recently.

There are so many ways to rock this trend: You can opt for a key piece (blouse, skirt, jacket) to create your outfit around the print or a hint of the trend to add a little somethin' somethin' to your look (shoes, bag, scarf).
Leopard print looks awesome paired with cognac, red, black, and brown.

We currently have these amazing Tulle coats that will allow you to get with the trend in a jiffy!

Looks of the Week

 Emma Stone... being Emma Stone.. aka Awesome. I'm looooving this mustard satin Lanvin clutch. Honestly, the clutch is stealing the show but I have an appreciation for this deep-deep teal gown-- anything that's not black for a change on a red carpet is so fun to me!
 Obviously, Heidi's body makes this look all the more kick ass. Animal prints are huge for fall but I'm loving this spin on the popular print with a white background vs. the typical brown or black.
Jennifer Aniston always does suit-like ensembles to a T. However, I just loved the bustier look underneath the vest. I adore a vest for fall in place of a blazer. And the accessories are perfection for keeping this casual and cool!
 Yes, the hair is big. But when you take into consideration that Julianne Hough was premiering her latest movie in Nashville-- it's very audience appropriate ;) I love the color of the dress, the length, as well as the sparkle.. so NashVegas.
Last, but not least, Mrs. Reese Witherspoon rocking a combo that I just lurve. We have so many blazers in the store right now that all you have to do is stop by fab'rik to recreate this party perfect look!
