Fashion Networking And An American Legacy at the IMA!


Photo Courtesy of the artsdaily.org

Yesterday, Notable Styles and More attended a fashion networking event hosted by Pattern Indy and the IMA: Fashion Arts Society. This event opened doors for an opportunity to network with other Indy fashion business professionals and to view the IMA Exhibition An American Legacy: Norell, Blass, Halston and Sprouse. The atmosphere was chatty and relaxed, with attendees dressed in various comfort levels from casual attire to designer apparel. Fruit and cheese appetizers were in full swing as well as a cash bar. The music being played had subtle undertones to the conversations that were being initiated and maintained.



The, An American Legacy Exhibition was beyond beautiful. The featured works of the four designers (Norell, Blass, Halston and Sprouse) were amazing to look at. The color combinations, textile choice, design and detailing of these art museum worthy garments make the fast fashion of today seem like a down grade. I often think of monochromatic as simple and boring, but some of the solid color outfits here were sophisticated, classy and eloquent.

See below for images of dresses from the Norman Norrell feature. Norman Norrell was born in 1900, in Noblesville, Indiana. Norman was known for his suits and tailored style of clothing.

Dainty Earrings!

There are times when dainty, small, earrings become relevant in a girls life. Depending on your destination, vibe and style, you may want to dabble in dressing up your ear lobe with animal figurines, crystals, austrian diamonds or other elegant jewels. Picnic outings or being outside in the hot weather is a great opportunity to minimize your ear stress and wear nice post or stud earrings. Another benefit to wearing dainty studs is that they look good on absolutely everyone and say something about your style without speaking. We all know the best messages sent are those messages that you do not have to talk to send.
 
Details on the earrings in the order as pictured above:
 
Sailor style
 
Austrian diamond on the gilded round
 
Black cube wih crystals
 
Turquoise eye leopard
 
Pearl owl 
 
If you are interested in any of the earrings, send an inquiry to imnotonik@gmail.com all of the pictured earrings are $30-$40.
 
The top, pants and combat boots will all compliment the earrings very well as an entire outfit or individually. To purchase the entire clothing look or separates follow this link. For being a Notable Styles reader you will receive $10 off of any purchase made larger than $50 code SS1051.
 
ENJOY!!!

TwentyEight Boutique's Preview Fancy Prints!!

This week TwentyEight Boutique has blessed us with a preview of items that will be arriving Friday, July 20th, just in time for the Indiana Black Expo and weekend events in other cities.

Both items are lightweight, fancy, pants that are well priced, on target with style trends, give you awesome color options and a sophisticated attitude.

The jumpsuit will be in very, very limited quantities. So if you want to be one of the only ladies in this look, I think you should be waiting outside of TwentyEight Boutique when the owner arrives. Cute outfit = Sell Out Fast! Price - $55

The palazzo pants are so shiek, that this item is GUARANTEED to sell OUT, QUICKLY!! The Versace inspired print?? Where else can you get that for a great price! They are hot!! Price - $35

Do not play around with these two pieces ladies, go get them, fashion is a game that you do not want to lose!

Mens Fashion Wednesday!






Good day Notable Stylelistos and listas, today you can view how simple yet sophisticated and detailed menswear can be.

4 of the 5 above looks feature a jacket of some sort and the fifth look features the ever popular plaid shirt and boat shoes look. Blazers and suits can really allow you to stretch out your wardrobe options if you mix and match them properly. All of the above looks are summer appropriate. To set the record straight, when you want to pair or select a blazer/jacket to wear rthere is really one main thing to remember make sure that the jacket is weather appropriate.

Linen blazers should be worn in summer months.

Cotton blended blazers can be worn in summer/winter months.

Wool blended blazers should be worn in winter months.

Polyester blended blazers should be worn in winter months, or summer depending on the thickness.

Also stick to solid color jackets if you are building your wardrobe. Those will be easier to color coordinate. Printed jackets or plaid designs are more for one wear or for special occasions.

As you can see, you can wear an entire suit, or take the suit jacket and pair it with a v-neck tee and denim, pair the jacket with a plaid shirt and flooded pants, match a linen blazer with a crew neck tee or lose the jacket and wear the plaid shirt without the jacket. There are many options available for the budding fashion Mr's.
