Fall’s Top Three Trends And How To Wear Them From The fashion Team at Nordstrom

Master the season’s three hottest looks with tips and tricks from Nordstrom

Autumn’s on its way, and we hope fashion followers of all kinds will find something to adore this season. Nordstrom have broken down each of the season’s hottest trends and explained how to wear it, so whether you find yourself straddling a motorcycle or in the company of ladies who lunch this fall you’ll always be in top form.

Trend #1: Lady Luxe

Ladylike looks move in and out of style every fall, but this year they’re definitely in. What’s new this season is that prim and proper dressing isn’t restricted to any one decade; every fashion maven of the past is in play, so long as you give their look a luxe 21st century update.

Seeking to update that midi skirt from last year? Add a matching sweater, collared button-down, and pair of tights for a pulled-together, Mad Men-inspired look that’s way more power-Peggy than season one-Peggy.

Tory Burch “Kerry” silk blouse, $295. “Walda” sweater, $325. “Leigh” A-line skirt, $350

Grandes dames of the 70’s more your style? Look no further – a fitted long-sleeve dress in an oversized print is just the ticket. Add a pair of chunky heels and some larger-than-life curls to complete the look.

Miss Wu “Radiant Faille” feather dress, a Nordstrom exclusive, $995

If your idea of ladylike dressing is a little more modern – think Blair Waldorf, not Betty Draper – some serious darting and out-of-this-world texture will get you where you want to go. Nothing fits a princess of the Upper Eastside better than a super-chic party dress, and a fresh face and this number by Miss Wu certainly fits the bill.

Rocker Chic Meets Artful Fashion With New Collection Of Luxe Scarves Inspired By Artwork From The Legendary Jerry Garcia

Garcia Artwear Women’s Scarves Capture Essence of Jerry Garcia’s Popular Paintings

Garcia Artwear has launched a new collection of scarves inspired by the artwork of the late, legendary guitarist and visual artist Jerry Garcia of The Grateful Dead. Tapping into the trend of stylish and functional scarves, the rocker-chic designs are wearable and collectible at an affordable price point of $39.50. In addition to gaining worldwide fame as a guitarist in The Grateful Dead, Jerry Garcia was a notable artist. Garcia studied at the San Francisco Art Institute and his art includes works in watercolor, gouache, pencil, ink, airbrush and digital media. His pieces are highly collectible and have been shown in galleries across the U.S. When his art was shown in a New York City gallery in 1991, a tie manufacturer thought it would look great on neckwear and thereafter, Garcia allowed his art to be licensed to J. Garcia Art in Neckwear. It was a popular sight in the 1990s to see men of all ages wearing a distinctive J. Garcia tie. And in 2013, a stylish collection of fashion scarves based on Garcia’s artwork has been created for women.

Designed by two best friends who share a love of fashion, the Garcia Artwear collection is inspired by the artwork of Jerry Garcia and created by the Titan Design Group. The team behind Garcia Artwear has paired their passion for Garcia’s artwork with a history of successful retail launches. Use of the Jerry Garcia name is licensed to Titan Design Group by The Garcia Family LLC.
The first Jerry Garcia scarves feature four distinct styles made of 100% viscose and 100% polyester, in a selection of bold hues and softer palettes. These designs capture the beauty of select paintings and drawings by Jerry Garcia of The Grateful Dead, telling a visual story of the artwork that each design emulates. Styles include:
Banyan Trees: A soft-hued scarf with a touch of breezy sophistication, available in red and pink, inspired by Jerry Garcia’s popular Banyan Trees watercolor. 100% viscose, 68″ x 28″ with 3″ knotted string fringe.
Dawn At The Ritz: A richly colored scarf with an artful watercolor effect. Available in original (the colors of sunrise), sage and teal. The impressionistic look emulates the vibrant hues of the Manhattan skyline as seen in the painting. Material: 100% viscose, 68″ x 28″, knotted string fringe.
Feeding in the Light: An artistic collage of color, available in original (dusty orange), blue and teal. Based on the painting which is a tribute to Garcia’s deep love of the ocean and skin diving, later renamed “Neighbors”. Material: 100% viscose, 68″ x 28″, knotted string fringe.
Wetlands I: A subtle medley of complementary multi-hues creates an elegantly artistic look, in two styles and several colors. Based on one of Garcia’s first airbrush paintings, Wetlands I endure as one of his most popular works. Wetlands I Scarf: 100% viscose, 70″ x 38″. Wetlands I Wrap: 100% polyester, 70″ x 43″
Garcia Artwear scarves capture the beauty of select paintings and drawings created by Jerry Garcia, who is not only revered worldwide as a beloved musician but also gained fame as a prolific artist. The collection will initially feature four designs based on Jerry Garcia’s colorful, whimsical artwork. The designers of Garcia Artwear have deep roots in the fashion industry. Members of the team that originally created J. Garcia Art in Neckwear, neckties that were a popular fashion staple throughout the 1990s, have collaborated to develop this new collection.

Garcia Artwear scarves are available at www.GratefulGirls.com and will soon be sold on Amazon. For more information, go to www.GarciaArtwear.com. Follow Garcia Artwear on Facebook at www.facebook.com/GarciaArtwear.

Always on the forefront of innovation, SkinCeuticals has been given the honor of winning an Allure “Big Breakthrough” award for a second year in a row. This notable category acknowledges game-changing products that break beauty industry standards. Advanced Pigment Corrector, which launched last month, was selected for its ability to not only remove stubborn pigmentation but also prevent its reoccurrence. This first-of-its-kind hyperpigmentation treatment contains medical skincare-grade technology with a blend of unique actives including Ellagic Acid which blocks melanin transfer and Yeast Extract which enhances skin’s resistance to new pigmentation. Boston dermatologist, Dr. Ranella Hirsch, was impressed by both the formula and extensive testing, saying, “I’m pleased SkinCeuticals tested their ingredients against a blend of hydroquinone and retinol, which is the way most doctors treat dark spots now. Even more importantly, [Advanced Pigment Corrector] is doing something new by decreasing the likelihood of a dark spot returning. For anyone who’s been treating hyperpigmentation for a long time, that’s an exciting development.” Continue reading
