Television’s talented, beautiful and funny star, Gillian Jacobs, is gracing us as the newest addition to Bluefly‘s Closet Confessions. As we peek into her small walk-in closet of her cute Los Angeles apartment, we get a taste of her personal style which perfectly matches her witty and charming personality.

 

 

Gillian describes her style as feminine with a love for dresses and skirts, along with a mix of other personal favorites. One of the things to take from our exclusive access to Gillian’s closet is her “addiction” to stripes, but who can blame her when it look so good on her? Gillian also shares pieces of family history with us, such as her grandmother’s plaid coat from the 70s. The fringe trimming only proves that fashion is indeed cyclical as we’ve seen this trend coming down the runways recently. In an exclusive clip, Gillian expresses her appreciation for Air Jordan sneakers (not your usual pair of Jimmy Choo’s), and that ”guys would pay so much attention to you, if you were wearing a pair of Air Jordans.” Here is the complete insiders’ look of Gillian’s closet.

Suit Up…

Bluefly Mens Suit

 

Purchasing your next suit is always an important investment, you want to pick the right cut, color and fit that can easily transform from ‘boardroom ready’ to ‘client meeting mingling’. Here are our top three tips to getting your suit situation sorted:

 

1. THE FIT – a perfectly tailored suit can make all the difference! Baggy and oversize is out and a more fitted cut is in! Opt for a slimmer style suit and take it to your tailor to perfect the fit. Pay careful attention to your sleeve and pant leg length, no one wants to look like their suit shrunk in the wash!

 

2. THE COLOR & FABRIC – to ensure your suit goes the distance, look at a tone more inline with your shirt colors and accessories. We suggest going for a rich navy or dark charcoal as it’s hard to go wrong when teaming back colors with these! With the colder months lying ahead of us, invest wisely in a wool blend suit. This will cut the chill in winter but also see you through to the warmer months as the fabric can breath. Sometimes it’s worth spending that little bit extra for a suit you can wear year round!

 

3. THE STYLING – get comfortable with dressing up and dressing down your suit! Putting on a shirt and tie is a no brainer so think beyond this! For the winter months have fun with layering colorful cashmere sweaters and sleek puffer jackets! You’ll stay stylish and warm all at the same time! Also, think about additional finishing touches such as pocket squares, leather belts, cuff links,  tie pins and socks! It’s the attention to detail that could make the difference between sealing the deal or not!

Fall 2012 Trend: 5 Shoe Must-Haves

Shoes To Own For Fall

 

The amazing thing about accessories is that sizes are never a concern (unless your feet are still magically growing). So it’s easy to overstock on such things as handbags and shoes. But who’s complaining! If you’re looking to downsize to only the essentials, however, we already advised you on the only five handbags you’ll ever need. And now that fall is starting to sneak up on us, you’ll be bidding adieu to your sandals and espadrilles and welcoming a new slew of flats and boots. To make the transition easier for you, we’ve compiled the top five pairs you should be getting for fall. Check out the list below–and our slideshow of editor’s picks for examples of each.

 

  1. Smoking SlippersInstead of sporting ballet flats through fall, opt for this male-inspired shoe, whichcomes in literally every design you can think of. They’re comfy to wear, have a little bit of a heel, and depending on the style you choose, can easily be a statement piece in your daily ensemble.
  2. Cap-Toe PumpsRegular high heels are boring. But a cap-toe detail adds a bit of zest to your mundane pair. There’s also no need to pile on the jewelry if your pumps are already sporting ametallic cap-toe.
  3. Wedge Sneakers: Fact: the sporty shoe was a best-seller this spring and a fun alternative to your usual pair of Converse, Vans, or Superga shoes. Plus, the wedge gives you flattering height in the most casual way. Consider this your fall secret weapon of style.
  4. Colorblock Heels: The colorblock heels from spring are transforming themselves for fall with color-contrasting soles. Add a pop of color by just slipping these on and voila! You can instantly dress your entire outfit around this eye-catching pair.
  5. Chelsea Boots: While you could easily bring back your motorcycle-style boots for the fall, we prefer this slip-on, Mod-inspired shoe, which is just as appealing as flats or in heel-form. This type of boot is effortlessly cool and can be worn with nearly everything, from comfy leggings to pleated skirts.

Lauren Conrad Loves Louboutin but Don’t We All?

If there’s one starlet that has great taste, it’s Lauren Conrad! On July 19, the former Hills darling stepped out solo in SoCal, where she enjoyed an afternoon shopping spree at the Christian Louboutin boutique. After browsing around the store for a bit, Lauren finally found the heels that she wanted and headed home with a brand new pair.

It’s no secret that Lauren has a fabulous flair for fashion, and though this was just a normal day out, the blonde beauty still stepped out in style. Rocking a beige shirt with matching color flats and dark skinnies, the California girl topped off her low-key look with a pair of stylish shades and a Balenciaga tote. Loving this look, Laur!

 
 

Shoes Are Actually a Girl’s Best Friend

This week in a new installment called Shoesday: green cap toe, navy body, subtle glitter, dark wood. While working on my Russell co-Branded bookie wookie, I got to thinking about the relationship we have with our feet and the shit that goes on them. Maybe you remember the corresponding tweet attached to this sentiment. I have a few theories and speculations about why we’re willing to drop such large loads–brands will only make their footwear as expensive as the consumer can handle and loads of these guys run up some $3,000 price tags–on the little leather, often uncomfortable critters ultimately meant for no use more imperative than to drag across floors. Across floors.

 

 

Many a time, they’re even in fact overlooked in the grand scheme of presence. But my theories are just, you know, theories and they include the usual roundabout confidence, suspension of disbelief, strive to role play as a means of escapism, you know how it goes. Sex and The City penetrated the notion of a woman’s relationship with shoes quite heavily during the course of its six season run. In one episode, Carrie Bradshaw went so far as to fake nuptials with herself so as to regain a pair of lost silver Manolo Blahniks. In another, she had a pair stolen off her feet, literally. I’ll argue she deserved that one for not knowing where Houston Street was but that’s another beast to tackle at a later time. More recently, an entire movie–God Save our Heels–debuted during fashion week to outline the female attraction to expensive footwear. I saw it, I liked it–quite a lot–but somehow, I still find the question unresolved: what is it with us women and our shoes?

Would love to hear what you think.

 
 

Shoes at Full Throttle

Not sure I can conform to this particular brand of shoe trend, it falls so deep into that category I penetrated on Tuesday and will likely forever be The Prada Sandal, capital TPS of Spring/Summer 2012. That said though, paired with green toe polish, the air of Fashion Week and cobblestones of Paris, this is a highest form of personal aesthetic pleasure. Maybe that’s all it is, enjoyable and inspiring to look the artful eye. And if that is in fact the case, it’s more than alright because this is what fashion is–or should be–when push comes to shove. In any case though, St. Patrick’s is after all right around the corner. So, you know, at the very least, it’s timely too. Via Tommy Ton for Style.com
