If you missed out on the Phillip Lim for Target collaboration this month (or you saw the lines and ran the other way) here’s a new partnership to get excited about. Catherine Malandrino is bringing her Parisian-chic aesthetic to Kohl’s stores beginning today (the pieces are already available on Kohls.com) for a DesigNation collaboration you’re definitely going to want to get in on.

Discover Your Style Persona with a Little Help from TJMaxx

September 25, 2013 at 2:00 pm , by

Yesterday, T.J.Maxx invited some New York fashion editors to discover their style personas with the help of clinical psychologist and closetologist (um, hello, coolest job ever!) Dr. Baumgartner and celebrity stylist, Nicole Chavez.

Dr. Baumgartner used her ten years of experience as a psychologist and wardrobe consultant to develop six distinct style personas based on how women organize their closets, how they put outfits together, and how they shop.

After taking a short quiz, we were given our results (I’m a Trend Trailblazer!) and shown to our ideal closets. Mine was spot on! Dr. Baumgartner also used her expertise to decode celebrity stylist, Nicole Chavez’s look–she’s a Show-Stopper–no surprise there!

Now, TJMaxx is giving all of you the chance to discover your style personas! Take the quiz here and take a look at the closets below. Then, head to TJMaxx to find your favorite looks.

No matter what she has on, this style persona is making a statement. She has a split fashion personality that may be buttoned-up by day and rocker by night.

Wear it Now Wednesday: She’s a Lady

We love a good moto jacket around here and luck for us, they’re a hit for fall/winter this year. Our favorite styles are tailored and a little tough with eye-catching details. Whether you prefer vegan leather (like the one above) or the real deal, there are infinite ways to style your new topper. We love the contrast in this look. The ladylike accessories and full skirt keep things feminine and allow the edgy jacket to shine.

Wear It Now Wednesday: Southwestern Style

September 11, 2013 at 8:00 am , by

Aztec prints are hot for fall. This red-orange boucle full skirt from Topshop fits the bill, plus it has pockets—how can a girl say no? Pair yours with an embellished sweatshirt for a cozy yet glam date-night look. (When the weather cools down, wear tights and a leather jacket for extra warmth.) Add a crossbody bag in cobalt blue, the color of the moment. Complete your chic ensemble with geometric jewelry and fringe booties. The wedge on these makes your legs look super-long but means you can walk comfortably during a night on the town.
