Cotton - Road to the Runway



Posted by Sugar Laws
February 5, 2013



You guys may remember this dress from when I bought it in this post — but one of the problems of a really distinctive outfit is that sometimes it’s hard to wear it more than once in photos for Sugarlaws without looking like I’m repeating the same stuff over and over.


But when I thought about how to make this dress work in a different outfit (and for a very different season), this denim jacket immediately sprung to mind.  I wasn’t sure how much use I’d get out of a lined jacket in Houston, but it’s been the perfect staple this winter!  I’m a little sad to put it away as spring starts to hit — but it was almost 80 degrees here this weekend, so it’s not going to be wearable much longer! 


Only a few more weeks left of Cotton’s Road to the Runway!  There have already been almost half a million votes — it’s so awesome to see how excited everyone is about their region’s style!  This has been the most amazing project to work on, and the best is still to come!  I seriously can’t go an hour without getting giddy for our fashion show in Miami at the end of this month!  If you haven’t voted already (or if you have!), head over to their website to pick your favorites and enter to win $1440 weekly!

What I’m Wearing
1. Cowl Sweater: Windsor
2. Cut Out Sweater: Windsor
3. Liquid Leggings: Windsor
4. Beanie: Urban Outfitters
5. Lace Up Boots: Jeffrey Campbell
6. Louis Vuitton ‘Eva’ Clutch
7. Bow Necklace: Tiffany & Co
8. Diamond Ring: Tiffany & Co
9. Cross Bracelet: Gift
10. Sunglasses: Prada Baroque


Just a quick, casual style diary for this Saturday. I’ve had a hard time pairing up cut out sweaters because they’re shorter than I typically like to wear- thankfully I found this awesome sleeveless wrap sweater that adds length [and warmth!] perfectly. Monochromatic layers look super styled, but these are incredibly comfortable- and inexpensive.


This is also my first post featuring my new favorite piece of jewelry. My boyfriend gave me this silver bow necklace for my birthday [like, really. You just went to Tiffany's and found this adorable necklace on your own. Can I keep you?] Needless to say, I was totally surprised. It’s his birthday this weekend [and on the super bowl] so hopefully it will be just as special :)


This weekend is also the final chance to vote for your favorite looks in Cotton’s Road to the Runwaycompetition! I can’t believe the 24 hour runway show is coming up so soon! Make sure to cast your vote for your favorite Cotton Street Style here.


Hope you’re having a great day! Be back soon.

Coast to Coast Style Video: Northeast Fashion

Petra Flannery is showing Heidi what to wear in northeastern cities like Washington DC, Philadelphia and New York City, with tips and tricks for styling outfits inspired by these regions. 


First, Petra shows us a chic suit that represents a stylish woman from Washington. D.C.


"When you look for a suit, look for pieces that have feminine details so it doesn't look too masculine," Petra says. In this case, it's all about a subtle pattern on the fabric. "Lace makes it very sexy and feminine," says Heidi. To keep it feminine, try wearing your hair down, which softens a strong outfit.


Next, Petra shows us an outfit inspired by Philadelphia-a casual but chic skinny jean paired with equestrian riding boots and a classic cable knit turtleneck. "A knee high equestrian boot is a winter staple," says Petra. But when you try this look, just make sure not to go overboard with too many thematic items. I think you have to be careful that when you wear these boots you don't wear the riding jacket and the riding coat so you don't look like you just came from riding a horse," says Heidi.


The third and final fashion look of the Northeast is inspired by New York City. Given the region is more metropolitan, there's a larger need for a more sophisticated style, says Petra. A basic black dress with blazer over it is the perfect choice. "What's great about a look like this is you can really change it up with accessories, she says. "This is also an easy look to take from day to night."


Remember, when you're shopping for wardrobe staples, don't just buy basics. Pieces with great detailing like tailored shoulder or boots with studs will easily take the look from drab to fab!
