Online Love: Dead Bury Dead Tee and Jogger Jam Pants

Fashion is designed to enhance and empower you. So, why is it that so frequently we find ourselves in constrictive dresses and painful pumps?  Although those glamorous goods make us feel fierce, is it possible to put your best foot forward when that foot hurts?

livre-2So for that ladies that haven’t yet, say a hearty hello to the jam pant! On trend and super comfortable, jam pants are just the thing when you need a break from sucking in and zipping up. Spice them up with heels or try them with monochromatic sneakers- these pants look great without much trying.

livreWhen the temperature drops, throw on a military inspired coat, like this one from Tulle. With it’s cinch-able waist, the shape ranges from feminine to not, which will easily make it one of the most versatile pieces you own.

Paired with one of our favorite graphic tees and a cool necklace, this look is trendy, chic, and ready for anything.

Always remember, you’re the boss. So dress the part and don’t let uncomfortable clothing dictate your day!

Stalworth Shoes and Layering

Something about September always rekindles our love of layering. Although we are still lounging in the summer sun, this month serves as a staunch reminder of the weather to come.

hoodie_pencil-5Whether it’s in denim or knits, with the dawning of fall, we’re looking towards layers as the way to stay comfortable while wearing out our summer staples. (Say a virtual hello our spontaneous model and sister, Maggie, who stopped by with coffee at the perfect time!)

hoodie_pencil-3With our hotter than hot afternoons and cooler mornings rolling in, our outfits require adaptability. What better way to prepare for a 40 degree fluctuation than a wrap sweater? It’s too early to retire our summer tops, so nudge them towards fall with a cozy knit.

hoodie_pencil-2hoodie_pencilAnd we’re certainly not rushing to bid farewell to the gorgeous sandals either. Handcrafted by local artist Jessica Brommer, each pair features all leather uppers, poplar sole, vibram tread and a 2.5″ heel. Buying local has never looked so good.

Timelessly Trendy

moon_orbits-2 Is it possible for a look to be both timeless and trendy? As rare as it may be, at Minx, we’re always scouting out the pieces that can do both those things.

Take for instance, our “Orbit City Stunner Dress”. With it’s side cutouts and hi-lo hem, this dress recycles trends we’ve seen over and over through the last few seasons- so, trendy it is. Paired with an urban cut-out boot, this look is provocative enough for the most on-trend seeker.

moon_orbits-3However, with it’s rich color, mock neck, and killer fit, this dress is elevated beyond the “right here and now”. Take it to a concert, out for cocktails, or to a fall wedding- wherever the event, this dress can be styled to match.

moon_orbits-4We chose to highlight the vintage neckline with a necklace just as everlasting- an absolute stunner from David Aubrey. Reminiscent of something from your Grandmother’s jewelry box, this statement piece is the right kind of costume jewelry. Bold enough to be noticed and dripping with heirloom potential.

moon_orbits-5Good trends come and go. Try tying them to something classic and you’ll have a look that works when and where you want to work it, no matter what time it is.

The featured dress is from our online store, the rest is from the downtown boutique.

Orbit City Stunner Dress (online) – $66
Art Deco Statement Necklace, David Aubrey- $139
Midi Rings – $12
Underneath Cut-out Booties, BC – $92

Relax Into Boyfriend Jeans

boyfriend_jean North Carolina’s summer spell is upon us. 

The past few days have been the hottest yet and we find ourselves desiring  our easiest outfits. As the temperature rises, comfort takes top spot on our priority list. Try pulling on skinny jeans in the late August heat, and you’ll agree, something more relaxed is calling your name.

So, we’re welcoming back our favorite boyfriend jeans from Level 99. The perfect (and oh so comfortable) alternative to your go-to skinnies. 

Level 99 Boyfriend Jeans

Boasting a vibe as relaxed as their fit, these boyfriend jeans are comfortable enough for the hottest days and cool enough for night. 

We like to offset the masculine feel of the denim with a pair of killer heels, like these Playtime Slingbacks from Seychelles. Pairing fancy footwear with casual jeans is an excellent and unexpected way to work dressier shoes into your day-to-day look.

 

boyfriend_jean-3Going for something more effortless? Try pairing them with one of our favorite recurring trends- a luxe sweatshirt top. Easy to style and comfortable to wear, this top from RD Style is just the thing to keep you feeling good from sunup to sundown.

 

boyfriend_jean-4There are still long summer days ahead, so dress to enjoy them. Stop traffic. Take that detour. With your trusty boyfriend jeans you’ll be ready for whatever awaits!

Leaf Pendant, David Aubrey – $79
Sienna Jeans, Level 99 – $150
