Moonrise Kingdom Inspires Retro Fashion: Suzy’s Style June 8, 2012

Filmmaker Wes Anderson is back this summer after a successful debut at Cannes of his new film Moonrise Kingdom. While the plots of his various films tend to include affecting yet charming stories, it is the style of the characters and sets that leaves us most mesmerized… and, rest assured, Moonrise Kingdom will deliver when we get to sit down for it in theatres after its wide release (the film is in limited release currently, in NYC and LA). Get a sneak peak at the style of several characters in this film as we lead you ‘from the set to the street’ with unique suggestions for your wardrobe, inspired by Scout Master Ward (Ed Norton), the mother and wife Laura Bishop (Frances McDormand), the husband and father Walt Bishop (Bill Murray), and the daughter/star-crossed lover Suzy (Kara Heyward).

THE ‘PREPPY WEDNESDAY ADAMS’ LOOK:

Tuesday, Thursday and Friday posts will cover your patriotic spirit from the beginning to the end of the season (Labor Day weekend, sigh), and don’t miss Wednesday Obsessions thrown into the beachy mix. Enjoy!

Personalized Looks for Each Style: the Gym Rat April 27, 2012

In the age of monogramming we’re always finding new fun ways to personalize our clothes & accessories, so this week we thought it would be great to feature SCOUT’s id tag, the I.B.U.I.D., attached to some of our favorite totes. For weekend travel or a work commute, we love the pop of color and pattern the I.B.U.I.D. offers in the realm of personalization!

GYM RAT STYLE:

Loose-fitting separates don’t have to be drab… this spring keep cool and run around in athletic-inspired shorts and a layered tank… Punch up the style factor by introducing patterned sneakers, then for the bolder set, pair these ikat-printed high-tops with a second and third print, as in the dress and tote combo below.

Clockwise from top left:

Theory Volexa Double-Layered Slub-Jersey Tank; SCOUT I.B.U.I.D. in Rad Paisley; Opening Ceremony Cross-Panel Dress; ASOS DECO Canvas Platform High Tops; SCOUT Gameday Tote in Boca; Carven Knit Shorts.

 

Destination NYE: In ‘Da Club December 28, 2011

It’s almost December 31st, ladies… Do you know how you’ll be ringing in the New Year?

We do! Well, we have some ideas for celebrating. Each post this week will feature a separate NYE scenario with accompanying style of dress. ENJOY!

IRREVERENT ELEGANCE:

From left to right, either of these pieces from Butler & Wilson would spice up the ‘ladylike’ notes in this look… far left is Butler & Wilson’s Crystal Crown Multi Chain Necklace, near left is the brand’s Large Lips Necklace; this McQ by Alexander McQueen Puffball Dress is flattering on just about everyone, a perfect investment piece; Christian Louboutin‘s Maggie Cao-Toe Pump is mixed-medium and color-blocking at its best.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

NOT-SO-CLASSIC BLACK:

From left to right, Valentino‘s Multi-Bow Over-the-Knee boot will ensure plenty of thigh-high action where the dress’s hem stops; Oscar de la Renta‘s feather-trimmed silk-mesh dress is for the most daring and fashion-forward; Long Gloves from Comme des Garcons are an unexpected yet effectively dramatic element to this look.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

METAL EDGES:

From left to right, TopShop‘s Black Leather Biker Jacket toughens up the flirty ruffles of this dress; AllSaints‘ Allegra Dress is harnessed by a leather belt; TopShop‘s Stereo Suede Stud Shoe Boots are the perfect bright accent to this look.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

GILDED CONFIDENCE:

From left to right, Christian Louboutin‘s Maggie Glitter-Coated and Snake-Print Pumps are a mixed-medium vibrant addition to this metallic look; TopShop‘s Leopard Sequin Strap Dress offers just the right amount of cut-outs and cover; Banana Republic‘s Clear Chandelier Earrings are bold in style yet understated in hue.
