Glamhive

Happy Friday all!

Today I am excited to tell you about a really awesome fashion website + app! It is called Glamhive - think of it kind of like a shoppable Instagram.  And I am sharing a little Q&A I did with Stephanie, co-founder of Glamhive!



What is Glamhive?

We describe Glamhive as a ‘shoppable’ Instagram. People who post on Glamhive match product to their outfits so their followers can easily buy the things that they see + love.

What can you find?

Almost everything! We’ve partnered with 450 retailers and brands; and that list grows every day.

People can shop by look or use our search to find products from their favorite retailers and brands. Our search functionality works a lot like ShopStyle, the big difference is that people will get Glamhive Points for shopping with us. Points are like cash back. No other fashion site or app offers this.



What will users find on GH that they won’t find anywhere else?

Two big things: 

1. all photos are shoppable - companies similar to GH are a hit and miss on this. 
2. rewards - again, no other site or app offers rewards to the people who create content and people who shop. 

The truth is, anytime anyone hashtags a brand or gives a retailer a social media shout out, they are helping to drive awareness and sales for that brand. Companies fully understand the power consumer photos have - they are more effective than any advertising. We believe people, from the most popular bloggers to the everyday instagrammer, should get something for their brand advocacy. 



How did Glamhive start?

Glamhive is an idea that my co-founder Gisella Walter and I had. We were seeing all of the cool fashion content on Instagram and Pinterest that wasn’t easy, and at times impossible, to shop. We also saw that people were creating this content for free and we thought: it would be amazing if we could build a company where people could share photos, others could easily shop those photos and everyone could get rewarded. So we built it!

Join Glamhive:

Super simple. Just download our iOS app or sign up on our website www.glamhive.com Just need an email address, username and password.



Who is Glamhive for?

Everyone that likes fashion. From bloggers to people that just like to post great pics of their outfits to people that love to shop these looks.

Future of Glamhive:

Our plan is to be ‘the Instagram for fashion’. Our goal is to be the #1 style destination for people to share and shop style.  We are building new tools for bloggers and great features for shoppers.

Thanks to Stephanie for taking the time to talk to me. I know you all are going to love it! 

Have a great weekend and don't spend all of your time on Glamhive!

Plaid + Sequins


Happy Thursday all! So close to another weekend. 

A few weeks ago I styled my new favorite pants with a turtleneck and faux fur vest (here). Today I am styling it with my favorite plaid shirt. 



I love the mix of the laid back plaid and the dressier sequins. I think they offer a nice balance to each other. 

Shirt: Banana Republic (similar); Pants: J. Crew; Shoes: Ann Taylor (similar)

In the Fringe

Happy Wednesday, friends. We are half way through the week!

Today, we talking trends… 1 trend really…




Fringe has been EVERYWHERE lately. It was big for fall, it is going to be big for the spring, and it won't be going anywhere any time soon since it was big for the fall shows as well.

Now, you don't have to be rocking a full on fringe look to incorporate the trend into your look. There are so many great fringe accessories including handbags and shoes!

So here are a few great fringe picks!


1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5

Have a great day!

Black, White and Pink


Happy Monday all. I am just going to put it out there - Mondays suck. I am so not in the mood for another week. I vote we extend the weekend through this week.  

I love a black and white palette with a punch of color, like a vibrant pink. It just gives a little bit of new life to a look, you know? 



Today, I am wearing a lot of Banana Republic. And I have to say, they have really been on point lately. There are SO many things that I want from there. They have seriously upped their game. I think Marissa Webb coming on as creative director there was the best thing BR could do. 

Jacket: Banana Republic; Skirt: Banana Republic; Scarf: Target; Shoes: Shoemint (similar)
Have a great day!

Fashion Week Fall '15

Happy Friday everyone! Who is ready for the weekend? I know I am!

Another New York Fashion Week has come and gone, so naturally we have a lot to discuss today. So in case you weren't glued to your laptop / phone / ipad / whatever all week (like I was), I've got the rundown for you. 




I think it is worth mentioning that the Fall 15 shows were the last to be at Lincoln Center and the last time Mercedes Benz is the sponsor. There are going to be big changes come September, so it will be interesting to see what unfolds. 

A few trends to note:
So many 70s inspired looks across the grid - Diane Von Furstenberg, Karen Walker... It seems like just about everyone is digging the 70s for Fall 15. 


Karen Walker


Fur and Fringe aren't going anywhere for fall. They were ALL OVER the runways! (BCBG fringe) (Rachel Zoe Fur) 


BCBG
Rachel Zoe
Other trends - wide leg pants- long and cropped- and menswear.


Marissa Webb

Derek Lam

Victoria Beckham





And some of of my favorite shows + presentations: 










Let me just tell you, I plan on getting the majority of the things from the J. Crew + Banana Republic collections, and as much of the Kate Spade as possible.  I have yet to figure out how I will finance such things, but surely I will be a millionaire by fall, right?

Other things of note: 
Tommy Hilfiger's football runway




Alexander Wang's All Black Collection




Kendall Jenner's first NYFW Modeling




And then there is the whole "Kanye does Fashion Week," but I'm not even going to go there because I think he is CRAZY. 


So there is a quick look at some of the highlights from Fall '15 Fashion Week!

Have a great weekend!

Inspired by Audrey

via

When I was little, I spent almost every weekend at my grandmother's.  She had a box set of three Audrey Hepburn movies, and we would watch them over and over. Mostly, we watched Roman Holiday and Sabrina. It wasn't until I was a little older that I understood Breakfast at Tiffany's.

Audrey Hepburn has been my favorite actress since those days on my Mawmaw's couch. She was beautiful and classic and feminine. There are few that can even come close to her, in my opinion.

So when boohoo asked me to style an outfit inspired by a celebrity or style icon from the past, I knew who my inspiration would be. 


Audrey wore a lot of amazing dresses. Of course, her LBD looks in Breakfast at Tiffany's are most iconic, but in general her dress game was fierce.  

So it was only natural that I went with a basic LBD with a retro silhouette.




Dress: ℅ boohoo; Shoes: ℅ boohoo

Have a great day!
