    Currently Craving 

    I am so excited to announce that I will be adding a few new contributors here at STYLE'N.  And today I want to introduce you to the first contributor Faith Pierce. Faith is joining STYLE'N as a fashion and beauty contributor and she will be contributing twice a month on fashion and beauty related topics.  Be sure to check out her blog that's just fabulous and instagram feed- both are seriously beautiful and addictive! 

    A little more information about Faith 

    Faith went to school for interiors/architecture and currently works in commercial and corporate design.  She is self-taught in photography and took design graphics courses throughout school. She began her blog that's just fabulous a little under a year ago as a creative outlet to document and share things that inspire her.  In her free time she enjoys cooking, creating, and especially photographing. When she isn’t working on her blog she loves traveling to New York to visit her best friend, brunching at her favorite DC spots, and of course…shopping.


    1 & 2 Zara “Sky Blue” High Heel Court Shoe with Bow  & Madewell Skinny Skinny Crop Jeans in Mist: These two items were inspired by my absolute favorite NYFW look worn by Danielle of We Wore What  When I began studying Danielle’s outfit I realized that the shoes of course and the denim were what stood out the most. I also feel like lighter wash denim has been popping up everywhere recently and I can’t wait to get my hands on this Madewell pair.

    J.Crew Maya Mirror Metallic Ankle-Strap Sandals : The metallic shoe trend seems to have a whole lot of staying power. I actually feel as though I’ve seen a pair on the racks each season recently. This is going to be my go-to way to get a little pop of silver come warmer weather.

    Zara Cracked Leather Messenger Bag : There is something about this sleek little bag that has quite a Celiné-like appeal [at a fraction of the cost! I especially love the white for the warmer months. 

    Loft Monochromatic “Suit” : When blogger Julia Engel of Gal Meets Glam styled this blush pink monochromatic look for NYFW I fell in love. I immediately began searching for blush pieces and stumbled upon this entire look on Loft’s front page. Between the dainty scalloped top, to the perfect blush blazer it was a win.

    Loft Candy Dot Trench : Currently, I am gravitating towards everything polka dots. No matter what the store or what the piece is; I want dots on it all. I love the nod it gives to being feminine and girly without being overwhelming.

    Wardrobe Staple Series- Chambray Shirt 

    Photo Credit 1/2/3/4/5/6

    Chambray {pronounced sham bray} is a lightweight double-ply woven fabric comprised of colored thread and bleached horizontal thread.  Chambray looks like denim and feels like linen and is wardrobe staple because it ultra versatile and can be worn year round.  Whether your style is classic, trendy, sophisticated, or feminine, a chambray shirt will work in your wardrobe. My favorite way to wear a chambray shirt is with a fitted black mini skirt but you can also use it a cover up with your bikini or wear it unbuttoned as a jacket. It is also a great piece to use if you are looking to remix or expand your wardrobe. 

    What is your favorite way to wear chambray?

Our top ten lists are created utilizing an algorithm that methodically researches and aggregates data from the stores, fashion blogs and style magazines our users trust. Each list captures the top ten items within a defined category (think skinny jeans, natural shampoos, running sneakers) to help users find the best products based on their popularity, quality, value, trendiness and “buzz” factor.

    1. What does a typical day look like for you?

    Every day is a bit of a mix, which keeps us on our toes but also keeps things interesting. Between getting our content ready to go live each morning, meetings, strategy sessions, making lists, networking, more meetings, more lists, and working on marketing, design and tech efforts while building partnerships...each day is jam packed and a bit frenetic but never boring!

    2. How would you describe your personal style?

    Sarika: My style is a mix of sub-continental, minimalist, and preppy and tends to draw me to designers like Chloe, Tocca, Helmut Lang, Rag & Bone, Isabel Marant and Balenciaga time and again.

    Pooja: I used to be a bit more “adventurous” but now, since I spend most of my time working, I am most comfortable and happy in a pair of Alexander Wang sweatpants and a t-shirt. I also love a good pair of JBrand Dark Skinny Jeans and anything by DV by Dolce Vita. I lived in their sandals this summer, their oxfords this fall and their black ankle booties are my new best friend. So I suppose my personal style is comfortable yet chic!

    Sonal: Classic, urban, casual, carefree.

    3. What are your favorite items in your wardrobe and why?

    Sarika: Rag & Bone ripped jeans because they make even the most casual, simple or formal looks seem urban, cool and edgy.

    Pooja: My Jono Hennessy (signature) purple glasses (can’t see without them), My Free People Skinny Cords  in army green (they fit perfectly and are so comfortable) and my Sorel Joan of Artic Boots . I especially could not get through this winter without them!

    Sonal: Lately, my Helmut Lang coated skinny jeans...they go with everything and can be dressed up or down.

    4. Do you have any style or beauty secrets to share?

    Sarika: My skincare and makeup regimen is simple but something I follow obsessively: Clean with Cetaphil morning and night, apply Giorgio Armani Face Fabric  before I leave the house and use Aquaphor as eye cream before bed time, especially during the winter months. I also drink a shot of turmeric, honey and apple cider vinegar at the start of each day to keep my skin, body and mind feeling its best!

    Pooja: These last few winters, dry skin has been a major issue for my face. A few months ago I got my hands on a tube of Josie Maran’s Argan Infinity Cream. I use it everyday - morning and evening and it’s made all the difference! It also has a million uses so I think we’ll be friends for many years to come.

    Sonal: Coconut oil works miracles- it has so many amazing benefits for your hair and skin...I discover new uses for it every day.

    5. How do you spend your "me" time?

    Sarika: Hot yoga at Modo, exploring a new neighborhood by foot and ending the day with a taco and margarita.

    Pooja: I don’t have a lot of “me” time, but when I do, I try to cross a few things off my (enormous) errands list, spend quality time with loved ones, and catch up on missed episodes of “Scandal”!

    Sonal: I like to start the day with a run along the river, catch up with friends over brunch and a bloody mary, visit my nieces and nephews as often as possible, or go see my favorite bands in concert.

    6. What is the most important thing you have learned through running your own business

    Sarika: The power of confidence and humility! Believing in yourself day in day out is half the battle, and remaining humble despite your successes is what makes it all last...

    Pooja: There are a lot of ups and downs, amazing days followed by days you start to doubt yourself and your efforts. I’ve learned you have to bounce back quickly. I always try to remember that tomorrow is a new day with a clean slate and has the potential to be Rank & Style’s best day yet.

    Sonal: Success doesn’t happen overnight...it’s all about the journey, so make sure you really enjoy and have passion for what you’re doing.

    7. What is your mantra?

    Sarika: Passion fuels persistence, productivity and ultimately success so make sure you feel real, tangible passion for what you do every day. And drink a lot of water!

    Pooja: Never put off for tomorrow, what you can do today. – a quote by Thomas Jefferson and words my parents encourage me to live by.

    Sonal: Don’t die wondering, live in the moment and make every day count.
