Monster Mash

Maybe Kanye West was onto something when he came out with the song Monster.  We’d hate to boost his ego even more but the monster trend has been escalating immensely ever since the song’s release. How cute are these monster-influenced fashions? We couldn’t wait until winter to show them off! fur-accessory-2 Street Pepper

Camo Print Craze

21

Bet you didn’t think that camouflage would be making a comeback. The utilitarian influenced print has been making a major comeback. We love how the neutral based pattern toughens up even the most feminine outfits. natasha-goldenberg-fw13

Break out your cropped tops and oversized shades because music festival season is upon us. The looks at Coachella and Governor’s Ball have us wondering what people will be pulling off for Bonnaroo.

Lace Street Style

Lace is one of the more versatile trims we sell at M&J. Black lace gives off a sexy sophistication while white lace often portrays beauty and innocence. The delicate trim can be paired with many fabrics to either play up or play down the beauty within each piece. We love how each of these street style starlets worked lace into their wardrobe. We can’t wait to recreate some of these looks using our M&J trims.

Here’s a special promo code just for you! Be sure to sign up for our M&J emails for even more promotions.

Rhinestone Street Style

We love the way rhinestones look, but rocking the gems everyday may seem a bit tricky to those looking to dress down the glitzy duds. We looked at some of our favorite street style blogs to see how fellow fashionistas were rocking the look. We adored the versatility in everyone’s use of the stones. We can’t wait to recreate some of these astonishing looks here at M&J.

Great Gatsby Inspiration

2

Few films have had such a powerful impact on fashion in the way that the Great Gatsby has.  The fashion sense of the roaring 20’s has influenced retailers and those counting down the days for the May 10th release. Brooks Brothers and Tiffany & Co created costumes for the films but we have been seeing an astonishing number of customers coming into M&J looking to recreate Daisy Buchanan’s Tiffany & Co headpiece.  The ART DECO fashion of the ‘20s was nothing short of amazing and we’re certainly glad it’s back.
