Keiko Lynn, Saucy Glossie & My Style Pill Love a Shopping Party
Last night our Fifth Avenue flagship set the stage for a fabulous gifting soiree hosted by Keiko Lynn, My Style Pill and Saucy Glossie. Keiko, Christine and Lindsey looked equally chic and festive in their styled Juicy outfits. The trio of lovelies outdid themselves, dutifully helping customers to cross off their shopping lists. From Deborah Lippmann polish to neon wrap bracelets to sunglasses, everyone found something to give—and receive!
Saucy Glossie | Caped Crusader
Fall is always full of weird transition days where it’s not quite cold enough for a heavy coat, but not quite warm enough for your summer clothes anymore. This is when it comes in handy to have something in your clothing arsenal to bridge that gap.
Enter the cape! It screams fall and has a such a cute cheeky little shape to it. Not to mention the camel color is one of the most chic colors you could ever wear. It’s classic, timeless, and pretty much goes with everything. I always picture wearing a cape with dark denim and boots, but I think it’s important to play around a bit and try mixing it with skirts or dresses… and of course, wearing socks with sandals is one of my favorite style statements this time of year!
These shots were taken in Central Park in an area that is right near my apartment. It’s become one of my favorite places to go and just enjoy the quiet nature while staring at the big city looming in the distance. An acorn fell and hit me on the head (true story) and I realized that even though the temperatures are still staying warm, fall is definitely here!
Saucy Glossie | The Bright + The Brave
In my last post I talked about my love for neutrals, but every once in a while I need to add in some color, especially when winter creeps up. When I wear bright colors I always try to tone it down with something neutral, in this case this amazing faux fur jacket! I like the contrast between the two, not only in color, but also in texture. This delicious mohair sweater adds some character—it definitely takes a certain confidence and attitude to make the most of it. It’s bold and daring, yet still fun and glam, and of course, amazingly wearable. A simple pair of jeans and a neutral shoe makes sure that this look isn’t too over the top, for me at least!
Saucy Glossie | Neutral Investments
Color has been everything lately, with all the color blocking and sporting of super saturated brights, but my eye has been gravitating towards crisp neutrals in a more subdued, polished style.
There’s something about looking at each piece individually, and investing in pieces that last. Every girl should have all of these items in her closet: A great fitting pair of ankle skimming pants (hello, shoes!), a cheeky bow blouse, and a chunky layering sweater will fill in any closet gaps. Then, adding color on top each season is easy, and the pieces feel really wearable.
I’m a self-confessed hat girl, but this is my first trial with a beret! When worn more towards the back of the head, slouchy style, it looks fresh—and the bow on this one is adorable.
These pics were taken near one of my favorite spots in Central Park and I can’t believe how fall-ish it looks outside…the leaves are already turning. Sweater weather is upon us here in the Northeast!
Saucy Glossie | A Warm Welcome for Fall
I have to say that although I’m sad that summer is leaving, I’m also really excited to start wearing fall outfits! I love being able to layer different items together because it makes dressing up more exciting. For me, the key to fall dressing is to invest in pieces that are great on their own, but also work with almost everything else I have in my closet. I try to look for things that have similar colors and definitely some great classic pieces in neutral colors like gray and camel. I can see this pink sweater dressing up a simple pair of Juicy skinnies or trouser jeans and you can never go wrong with throwing a faux fur vest over anything!
The brown floral piece is actually a dress and I layered the sweater over top to give the outfit some depth. What’s your favorite layering tip for fall?
We’re so happy for you to get to know our September Guest Couturist, the always lovely, most of the time lady-like Lindsey Calla, aka Saucy Glossie. Enjoy! xx
1. MY FAVORITE LOCATION TO SHOOT IS: Bethesda Arcade in Central Park! It has everything that I love: beautiful columns, arches, frescos on the wall, and a clean, classical vibe.
2. WARDROBE ITEMS CURRENTLY IN TOP ROTATION:
Right now I’m loving shoes with buckles, soft cozy sweaters for fall, lace up booties, and sheer long-sleeves.
3. A TREND I WILL ALWAYS SIT OUT:
Kitten heels! Give me flats or give me platforms. There is no in between for me.
4. YOU’D LIKE TO TAKE ME OUT TO DINNER, I SUGGEST…
Shake Shack! I say this for a few reasons. You can never go wrong with cheese fries and a milkshakes. Especially when you are sitting in the park enjoying early fall weather.
5. MY GO-TO BLOGGER POSE:
I always have one foot crossed over the other, one knee possibly bent and one arm bent up with a handbag dangling. And probably huge sunglasses on my face.
6. THE SIGNATURE LOOK I WILL ALWAYS RETURN TO:
Hats! Big floppy ones preferably, but I don’t discriminate. I’ve seen a few with a stiffer brim that I like as well. I’ve been buying them in really rich colors like plum and green because it’s the best way to tie an outfit together and add some personal style.
7. IT’S 10 P.M. ON SATURDAY YOU CAN FIND ME….
Probably watching Pawn Stars, American Pickers, or reading my Nook. It depends on the weekend though. Sometimes I’ll catch up with friends for dinner but you’ll never find me stumbling out of a club at 4 a.m.
8. THE MOMENT THAT INSPIRED MY BLOG:
I was working for a magazine and someone suggested that I should start one because I always showed up to work in crazy outfits. I didn’t actually start it until I came back from living in Sydney for a bit and needed a way to keep in touch with my contacts and express my point of view. It’s crazy how much it has evolved. My style is much more restrained and polished than it was when I was younger.
9. MY STYLE ICON:
My mom because she taught me the most important skill: being chic on a budget. She called me today to tell me that she found a dress marked down to $3 and I thought, “yep, I got that gene alright.” We both are very savvy shoppers.
10. MY CURRENT NON-FASHION OBSESSION:
Antique furniture and art history! I don’t really wear vintage clothing but when it comes to the home, the older the better. I recently found a beautiful mirror from the 1930s. I love anything that has history. I could study ancient cultures for hours. I just have such a love affair with the past and always try to learn as much as possible which ultimately always ends up inspiring how I dress or decorate my apartment.
11. YOU ASK FOR MY NO. 1 STYLE TIP, I SAY …
Always look polished. You can still be creative and unique but I feel like it’s important to be a tad lady-like. I think the explosion of personal style blogs has left everyone trying to one up each other in a crazy way and it feels refreshing to stay clean and invest in really great pieces that have longevity.
12. THE BEST GIFT I EVER RECEIVED:
My MacBook. I really don’t know where I’d be without it! I also give props to anyone who gives me Calla Lilies. I feel like it should always be the obvious flower, given my name, but it doesn’t happen as often as I think it might!
13. MY FAVORITE TRAVEL DESTINATION:
I have to say Sydney even though I’ve already spent so much time there. I’m in love with the landscape, the people, the style, and the untouched beaches. It really is like heaven because you feel isolated and there’s an appreciation for the simple things there.
14. MY FAVORITE THING ABOUT L.A. IS:
I just love the weather in LA and it’s so nice having great beaches within driving distance that you can actually go to year round. You can also add driving to that list as well. I love driving! Take that, subways and walking!
15. YOU SAY JUICY TRACKSUIT, I SAY …
Anything with an elastic waistband is a friend in my book! It’s hard to find loungy outfits that look cute. I have so many old pairs of lacrosse sweatpants from college that probably need to be retired in favor of a cute track suit.
16. MOST RECENT PURCHASE:
I recently stocked up on a gray silky shirt and an amazing gray watch with rose gold. I always end up buying special pieces but have nothing to pair them with so I’m trying to buy more basic pieces in neutral colors. I find neutrals to have a long closet shelf life and you can always accessorize them to add color later.
17. THE LAST SONG I LISTENED TO:
I’ve been in a big Adele phase, so anything on her album has been in heavy rotation. “Turning Tables” and “Love Song” in particular. It really depends on my mood—I can always tell what my mood was by looking at what songs I purchased at that time.
18. THE LAST RECO-WORTHYBOOK I READ:
Ooh I have a few but you have to be into this sort of thing: Pandora’s Seed, The Mystery of 2012, and The Ice Maiden. I always stick to non-fiction unless a fiction story is based heavily on things that happened in real life.
19. THE LAST RECO-WORTHY MOVIE I SAW:
I’m still so obsessed with An Education. Not only is the acting great and the story line amazing, but the wardrobe is to die for. It’s 1960’s London so there are some amazing swing coats and a lot of leopard print! I love when Carey Mulligan’s character goes to Paris and walks along the Seine with her shoes dangling off her fingers. It’s actually how you should dress in Paris, even now!
20. MY CURRENT GIRL CRUSH:
Kelly Wearstler! She is 360 chic. I appreciate someone who has such an artistic eye and approach to design and fashion. I would love to get inside her head to see how she comes up with such dreamy ideas!
21. FAVORITE NAIL POLISH COLOR:
I’m boring when it comes to nails so I have to say Sugar Daddy or anything light pink and sheer. I wish I could say that I like to experiment but I have big nail beds so when I wear color it looks to overwhelming! If I could wear anything it would probably be a smokey grey. I’m very envious of people who have great nails all the time. It is one thing I’m always trying to constantly improve upon but maybe some girls just aren’t nail girls!
This morning we enjoyed an insanely delicious breakfast at the stunning Imperial No. Nine at the Mondrian Soho with a solid crew of fabulous lovelies: Lindsey, Kelly, Katy, Fiona, Jamie, Gala and Keiko, to be exact. Not even the perfect shade of cornflower blue wire garden chairs, dripping crystal chandeliers, or covetable art could distract us from this bountiful spread: fruit salad dusted with pomegranate + mint, scruffins (scone + muffins = genius), an egg + roasted pepper souffle, banana bread+peanut butter+honeycomb panini (stop!!!) and the dreamiest vanilla cream cheese French toast you’ll ever meet.
We don’t count calories in these parts, thank you very much. Enjoy! xx
