Radio silence last week because I was in Vegas and what happens there stays there (well except for the photo proof below and on Instagram). In truth, Vegas was full of wild days in a convention hall attending MAGIC, a fashion buying tradeshow, where I got a sneak peek at what we’ll see in stores soon (hint: lots of greens). It was inspirational both in the creative styling sense and also because I had the opportunity to meet fashion folks from all over.
These sort of events always make me reflect on what I can do different and better and I usually come up with a long list. This week, as I think about the list I made last week, I’m promising myself to also remember all of the ways I’m pretty awesome and staying true to them. Here’s wishing you the same, Foxes. Happy Monday! xo
P.S. Oscar Faves coming Wednesday!
Obligatory Vegas (& Harley?) sign selfie. It was super crowded as you can see– Anastajza and I were too impatient to wait for a clear shot!
True story: when I was in college I was a student teacher in a high school history/english combo class (I clearly had another calling). One of the lessons I taught was about Martin Luther King, Jrs.’ I Have a Dream Speech. As much for the kids, it was a lesson for me as well. If Monday posts didn’t give it away, I love words and quotes and until then I had no idea how beautiful the whole speech, not just the parts we all know, is. I definitely recommend a read or, even better a listen, if you didn’t have a teacher as great as me (kidding, I was terrible, that was my shining moment).
As you enjoy a day of downtime and maybe some amazing three-day-weekend sales, I thought it would be nice to take a moment to be be inspired by the man whose dreams and determination we honor today. Happy holiday weekend Monday, Foxes! xo
If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you know that champagne and shoes have played a (extra) big role in my life the past week. It was a fun-filled whirlwind helping a client get ready for a night at the Golden Globe awards. The importance of the perfect shoe for a special occasion is still fresh in my mind, so it’s no surprise today’s inspiration spoke to me.
Here’s hoping the week ahead gives you plenty of reasons to indulge in fab footwear and a glass of bubbles or two. Happy Monday, Foxes. xo
P.S. we are planning a best and worst dressed post…it’s coming on Wednesday.
Happy New Year, Foxes! If you’re like me, this particular Monday, the first of 2015, doesn’t just mark a beginning, it’s also the official end of holiday haze. On one hand, the New Year is extremely motivating. On the other, I just want to ignore it, sleep in and enjoy a little more holiday fun. It’s in this spirit that today’s inspiration spoke to me. Some Mondays, especially those after a lot of downtime, you just want to grab what you wore on Sunday Funday and carry the festivities into a new week (or year). It’s not just me, right?
Here’s to meeting the first Monday of the year ready to kill it, no matter what we’re wearing. xo
Holiday season hazard: I stayed out too late last night and am anything but inspiring today, Foxes. Happily, there is still good news to start the week off on the right foot: our post on how to fit a men’s suit was selected as one of the week’s best by Idependent Fashion Bloggers! If you’re following closely, it’s the third time one of our posts has been selected for the honor and I’m especially excited about this one because Anastazja took the lead on writing it. I’m so lucky to have her talents as part of the Fawkeshunter team. She’s a design and construction master and I can’t say enough about her fit expertise, which is why, if you missed it the first time, make sure to check out the post (and all of the other great top posts below). It’s all you need to yourself, or the men in your life, looking sharp this holiday season. Happy Monday, xo.

‘Tis officially the season, Foxes! I hope you all had wonderful Thanksgivings and amazing holiday weekends full of fun (and shopping!). I personally enjoyed filling every minute with friends, family and football.
Today, I’m switching gears and staring down a busy holiday schedule full of clients, parties and a plane trip or two. Steeling myself to face frantic, festive fun, I remembered this quote, one of my faves from The Glitter Guide, and thought it perfectly summed up all we really need this season. With a smile, some shine and bubbles, we can take on anything the holidays can throw at us. Here’s to fun and festivities! Happy Monday! xo
Feeling grateful one of my favorite holidays is so close, this Marc Jacobs’ nugget of wisdom seemed like the perfect way to start our Monday, Foxes. Whether it’s family time, Black Friday deal hunting or just lots of pumpkin pie, here’s wishing you loads of what you love this week. Happy Thanksgiving! xo
