The Celebration steams ahead as we inch closer to Next Wednesdays' Fashion Show at MOCA! Continuing on this visual journey Chloe may not be a Barista at Bold Bean but she represents a very important part of the coffee shop, CUSTOMERS!! Lookin' all fierce Chloe and a friend made their way to Bold Bean as the shoot progressed unbeknownst to them . I loved their style so much I asked Luis to snap a few pics. They agreed and WOW! what a magical result, this image screams fall! Netflix, chill and oogle over Chloe! Happy Sunday!

Q & A WITH CHLOE

What is your favorite BB beverage for fall?

It's typical, but there's nothing like a dirty chai, it tastes like Christmas. Luckily Bold Bean has the best one around, I started drinking it iced when I got sick of the heat and missed the comfort of the holidays.

What is one thing you will never wear again?

A padded bra.

What’s one thing you will never stop wearing?

A black skater skirt, I'm wearing one right now. It's simple so you can look as fancy or as casual as you want. It twirls when you spin and it's comfy enough to sleep in if you have to.

How does your life influence your style?

I'm a little scattered, so my style is constantly changing. But I try and dress according to the mood I want to be in. If I'm feeling down, I'll wear the brightest, bounciest dress

Belts are the new "it" Accessory

Dana Rogo

When we think about belts, the first thing that pops into our mind is "a belt is used to hold up our pants". The belt ensures that your pants won't fall down and accents your outfit. This comment holds true for the most part however, as we transition into Fall, belts are the new "it" accessory. Women may not need belts in the way that men do but that doesn't mean we should dismiss the accessory. In fact, a belt helps complete the outfit.

A belt can add a polished look when your blouse is tucked into your jeans. It can give you a waist and a beautiful figure when paired with a dress. A belt can also help dress up a cocktail dress or dress down a flowy dress depending on how you style it. Because of the high demand of this accessory, you can grab some great finds at your favorite stores (including Fitz Pullins Inventory Room!). 

Some new styles for the Fall are rose gold chain belts, Gucci and Hermes leather belts with metal hardware, and slim belts with sleek buckles. When we shop, we tend to ask ourselves, "What else can I wear with this?" Luckily, these belts are transition pieces and can add a little extra any way you chose to style it.


One to Watch: Melissa Frank and Style Trends for the Fall on First Coast Living

Fitz Pullins

Style trends for the fall are not always what it sounds like.  This year we are finding a lot of colors that one might expect in the spring or even summer in the palette for the suggested fall wardrobe.  I also killed two birds with one stone and added local hair stylist, make up artist and my best friend, Melissa Frank as this month's One to Watch.  

This week i joined First Coast Living to talk about these trends and show some ways you can use the new colors to spark up your wardrobe in the Fall 2014.

 To watch the segment, click on the photo above.  We had a lot of fun and hopefully inspired some wardrobes to take some chances.

I want to thank my model Melissa Frank who is my "One to Watch" for October.  We had a great time putting together the photoshoot of looks and carefully curated each outfit to show how to use some of the fun colors of the fall.

If you are out there wondering how to make this happen and getting overwhelmed looking at the looming closet before you, just give me a call or send me a message and I can help.  We can have fun with a couple hours assessing where you are and where you want to go.  Drink some wine and have a laugh and before you know it, you won't feel like falling on the floor in tears.   Also the holidays are coming up and Holiday party looks are fun and time well spent planning.

OCTOBER ONE TO WATCH, MELISSA FRANK

Here are the looks from my One to Watch for October, Melissa Frank.  She is a Jacksonville enthusiast and always on the cutting edge of what is hip and fun in the fashion world.  Not only does she light up the room, but she dominates with her killer sense of style and personality which engages everyone she meets.  She is professionally a hairstylist a Bella Salon in Mandarin and also is a dynamic makeup artist and a local entrepreneur, selling jewelry and inspiring others to be fashionable.

HOW FASHION TRENDS START

Fitz Pullins

IMG_3799 Photoshoot for Jeff Whipple, Artist www.jeffwhipple.com

What is a trend?  A trend is a social process in which style changes. A good example of this is how we dress, of course my first obsession.  If a change is short lived its known as a fad.  Trends typically last long term. A lot of fashion changes are fads because they do not stick around for longer than 2 seasons.  A good example of a trend would be pleats.  They lasted a LONG time and then gone, some people are thankful. 

Trends are created by, you guessed it, TRENDSETTERS.  Think Madonna, Michael Jackson even Miley Cyrus, Chanel ahhh and of course J.Crew.  This may sound simple but for some it is not easy.  Trendsetters COVET change from time to time and in fact, often.  They are open to new originative styles and ideas embracing the new.  Personally, I find most trendsetters to be fascinating and can be found within the creative class.

Most wide spread trends are, of course, started in large cities like New York, Los Angeles and my beloved, Atlanta.  On a more international scale, Paris, Tokyo, Milan and London are filled with trendsetters, trendsetting. 

This important anthropological phenomenon is why I started the Bandwagon Effect.  Here in the southeast we have to embrace and not be afraid of TREND and become more bold with our style and how we approach everything we do.  Let's try new things, adopting an attitude of change is good.  Here at the Bandwagon Effect we are looking for those who embrace this spirit. In the next few days I will post my second feature Jacksonville style "One to Watch".  

I would love to hear from you with your ideas of what is hot, what is now and what is on TREND here in Jacksonville and all over the southeast. 

Stay tuned for more fashion as we continue to roll this Bandwagon down the streets and pick up more momentum on our goal to inspire and feature those who inspire through their bold trendsetting nature.

KEEP UP THE TRENDS AND KEEP FASHION NEW AND BOLD
