    The Next Movement: 7 Pieces That Will Take You There

    So today we remark on that beauty—the drape and flow of a finely knit shawl, the float-y elegance of pleats, the cling of a great dress as its moves as a second skin along the body. We even celebrate the motion that is captured in still form-- the movement in patterns, as cable knits interweave, geometric shapes dance off of each other and simple stripes map paths to the most flattering angles.

    On The Road

    With the holiday rush (and a serious drop in temperature) creeping up, we’re grasping on to the last few days of fall. On our pre wintry slush to-do list: a last-minute outdoor escape to take in autumn’s kaleidoscope of falling leaves. Deciding where to go may be the easy part, but figuring out what to bring can be an over-packed battle (there are way too many great layering opportunities in fall!).

    Style

    The Eve of Pandora

    As the leaves loosen and the air sharpens, the environment becomes more dense. Not only dense with piles of foliage on the ground, extra coatings of clothing atop previously bare skin, and more substantial meals on the stove, but dense with expression. Trees that were a uniform green begin to explode into fiery tones. Dinners that were light and crisp become blanketed in béchamel, honeys, or the comfort of cinnamon. The way we decorate ourselves veers from airy and minimal, to complex cloakings.

    Farm to Face: Chamomile-Infused Ice Cubes

    We all have those mornings when we wake up feeling a tad bit tired.

Whether a late night of work, long travels or an evening out with friends into the wee morning hours, we have been there—under-eye circles and all.

    Preserve Wellness: Fit For Two

    We all envision the glow that radiates as a soon-to-be mom, and with that, the ability to take on the world (or, just our normal day-to-day), while staying healthy and fit. Keeping active during pregnancy usually raises some challenges, especially during the first trimester. From constantly being tired, to uncontrollable cravings, to spontaneous nausea, bumps seem to pop up at every turn. So, how do you manage a bump-friendly workout, as your body changes with each new day?

    Buttoned Up

    If it comes with buttons, I’m of the belief you’re meant to use all of them. A shirt left undone reminds me too much of the ‘90s; it’s all so… so business casual. If my wardrobe is going to reflect some level of professionalism, it’s going to be all business, no apologies.

    Self Possessions

    Expression is a direct assertion of creativity and self-awareness. This fulfilling articulation is evoked by way of connections, body language, artistry, and even one’s way of dress. This sense of self-discovery begins at childhood and in fact never truly ends. We play dress-up in mom’s beloved heels and dad’s favorite ties. We continue into adulthood by finding ourselves through means of rebellion, experimentation and by retaining a sense of idiosyncrasy.

    White Out

    One of fashion’s (supposed) greatest gaffes is wearing white after Labor Day. The stale notion behind that famous rule stems from ideals established in the early 1900s. While the basis of the famous style ordinance isn’t so black and white, theories propose that fashion magazines -which were mostly based in the Northeast- directly reflected what fashion editors and the societal elite were wearing.
