“A little bad taste is like a nice splash of paprika. We all need a splash of bad taste—it’s hearty, it’s healthy, it’s physical. I think we could use more of it. No taste is what I’m against.”

VaniLLa Bean: Our Coated Canvas Works Perfectly with Edgy, Affordable Fashion November 5, 2012

This week on the blog we are exercising our right to wear coated canvas… with just about everything in your fall wardrobe! On Monday we start off with the younger set in mind, providing stylish examples of the latest trends at great price points; on Friday we’ll close with pieces for the traveller, since the SCOUT woman is always on the move. Enjoy!

At left and right, one of the hottest boots for fall, at a very hot price! ASOS River Island Salin White Studded Boots (L); ASOS River Island Saline Studded Boots (R).


Clockwise from top left: H&M Dress – a pair of oxblood tights and tall brown boots would look polished and cool for class or work; H&M Pants – these are a fun, abstract take on a zig-zag pattern – style as H&M has, with understated hues that simply complement the print on your pant; Zara Two-Tone Zip Jacket – this one is cozy and chic! wear over a tee (as shown), or over a button-down for a layered look; Zara Bomber Jacket with Diamante – like on the boots above, the diamante embellishment on this jacket is a must-have motif for the season; Zara Printed Skinny Pants – printed pants made their way onto clothing racks last year, and they are still going strong, as evidenced by the two pairs we feature here! if you’re shy to try a bold print in color, aim for something in black & white or another combination like neutral & white; SCOUT Daytripper in VaniLLa Bean Black; H&M Jacket – this graphic print will look great year round, especially layered over each season’s richer hues.


Quick Fix Week, Clothes: Pair These Items with Your Favorite Jeans November 1, 2012

Below Deb has come up with several different pieces to wear with your go-to pair of jeans. ENJOY!


‘Outfits’, from left to right: Diane de Clercq Bonne Nouvelle Scarf with Le Moine Tricote Wide Lapel Cardigan and Stubbs & Wootton for J. Crew Classic Velvet Slippers – this look is ultra-chic but it’s especially fun, from the varied stripings on the scarf to the regal badge on the pair of Stubbs – this ensemble would look great with super-skinny jeans, which will balance out the chunkier knit of the sweater; Balenciaga Fueilles Moire Scarf with Donna Karan Reversible Cold Shoulder Cardigan and Alexander McQueen Skull-Camp Suede Belgian Loafer – the natural-meets-unnatural effects on the scarf juxtaposed with the indisposed, McQueen’s signature skull, is made at once feminine with Donna’s drapey – and sexy! – cardigan; Trilogy Tibetan Lamb Fur Scarf in Highlighter with Yigal Azrouel Cable-Knit Wool Sweater and Hadleigh’s Audrey Tweed Smoking Loafer – this is classic prep meets urbanite – you will look oh so cool when you mix a fisherman’s sweater with neon anything.
