Fall/Winter Staples | Student Blogger Collab

Hello fashionistas!

As fall and winter are approaching is, we wanted to share our favorite pieces for the season! What is your fall/winter statement piece? We hope these inspire your seasonal wardrobe!

Statement piece #1:

Cassie1

Style Blogger: A Graceful of Adrenalynn Rush

Lynn is rocking her favorite utility jacket this season! It’s the perfect trendy jacket for the cold winter nights because of the fur lining and it has a hood for the rainy weather! Follow Lynn on her blog, A Graceful of Adrenalynn Rush!

Statement piece #2:

Style Blogger: Cassandra’s Corner

My favorite trend this fall/winter is plaid! I think it’s so great to see plaid on clothing items other than button up shirts. I’m a fan of plaid t-shirts and especially skirts. It gives an outfit that old schoolgirl style but with a trendy twist. This pattern is also perfect for any holiday parties this year. Click the link above and take a look at my personal fashion blog, Cassandra’s Corner.

 Statement piece #3:

Style blogger: TheVlocity

This season Victoria is loving the more simple/minimalistic approach with graphic liner. She loves monochromatic tones, minimalism, and structure. This fashion trend is perfect for the season and can be seen on Britain’s runways! I love how Victoria wore a bold lip to add a pop of color to her minimalistic tones. Take a look at Victoria’s fashion blog, TheVlocity!

 Statement piece #4:

falllll

Style Blogger: Kathleen’s Closet

Kathleen opts for comfort this season, sticking with the effortlessly chic chunky knit trend. This Free People cardigan can be thrown over almost anything and will instantly give you that casual fall vibe. The bonus? This cardigan feels like you are wearing a blanket around all day! Check out what else is in Kathleen’s closet by clicking the link above!

 Statement piece #5:

Along with your statement pieces this season, you always need to have a great color on your nails to compliment your outfit! This emerald teal color is great for the holidays. Add a little sparkle to you nails this season! A nice manicure adds flair to every outfit.

We hope this fall lookbook inspired your outfit choices this season! Whether it’s a great utility jacket or the perfect manicure, you should always feel confident in what you wear! Show off your great fashion sense this season with trendy statement piece.

FNA Bonding Event | Meet & Greet with Patricia Field

FNA Meet & Greet with Patricia Field

DSC_0225

Last month a few members of our association had the pleasure of speaking with Patricia Field.

An icon in the fashion industry, Patricia is responsible for the styling behind award winning shows such as Sex and the City and Ugly Betty. She was even nominated for an Oscar for her work in styling The Devil Wears Prada. On top of dressing nearly every A-lister in the industry, Patricia has her own boutique and salon in New York City. Judging by her fire engine hair color, you can assume her sense of style is just as bold. Her boutique is an eclectic mix of vintage grunge pieces and vibrant prints from her own collections. Showing at New York Fashion Week numerous times throughout her career, it can safely be said that Patricia is someone whose success is something to aspire towards.

So what was such an east coast icon doing in sunny San Francisco? Patricia had been invited to show at Benecia Fashion Week alongside Richard Hallmarq and Emily Payne, two project runway alumnis. Her west coast tour included appearances throughout the week in Benecia and a meet and greet at Britax fabrics in the city. After answering a few questions from all her fans, our FNA girls were lucky enough to speak to her privately about her substantial career. In speaking with Patricia it was apparent that one of her favorite things is to inspire. She encouraged the girls to stay true to themselves no matter what the industry is pushing for. She also stressed the importance of waking up every morning doing what you love to do. The fashion industry can be a dog-eat-dog world sometimes but staying true and being confident in yourself will always bring you success.

Obviously Patricia knows a thing or two about what she is talking about when she gives this advice. After decades of being in the industry she still gets out and creates garments and hand-picks the items that go into her store. Her passion is what flocks celebrities and movie producer towards her services.

Meeting such an icon in the industry is something each one of our members will carry with them throughout their own career.

A special thank you Patricia for your time and wisdom.

2014 Levi’s Mend-ables

 Let’s be honest, we’re all for the most part just broke college students swimming in a pool of student loan debt.

What makes this issue worse is when you are a fashion student (AKA shopoholic) and you are just craving a cute new pair of jeans. Don’t worry, we understand the struggle so next Wednesday the Fashion Network Association has you covered!

We have partnered with Goodwill and Levi’s for our second annual “Levi’s Mend-able’s” event in Malcolm X plaza. The concept for this program is that Levi’s donates their brand new merchandise with minor flaws to Goodwill. Instead of these jeans being tossed into a landfill, Goodwill and Levi’s are encouraging the act of upcycling. This is where we come into play. A multitude of ADM students will be on staff the day of the event to assist with hemming and mending so you can create your own perfect pair of upcycled Levi’s. Now let’s get down to the most important factor… the cost. $5 for a new pair or jeans and $5 for any hemming or mending you would like done. Basically if you skip that Pete’s latte for one day, you can purchase a great new pair of high quality jeans! Charity & cute new denim, does it get any better?

Stop by Malcolm X Plaza from 11am-2pm on Wednesday, October 22

Just bring your Student ID and some pocket change and prepare to shop. All SFSU Students welcome!
