Ernest Hemingway, J.D. Salinger, Bram Stoker, Roald Dahl…Now in Clutch Form!

12 Aug

Yesterday, Chicago street style photographer, Tres Awesome, posted photos from Lollapalooza 2011. What really caught our eye was the Olympia Le-Tan clutch inspired by Bram Stroker’s Dracula..this led us to the company’s online shop and honestly, the bags and clutches inspired by book covers are SO GORGEOUS. Watch a behind-the-scenes video and check out all the designs on their website here: http://www.olympialetan.com/online_shop.cfm. (they also have a pretty awesome blog for anyone in love with book cover design)

Free People August 2011 Lookbook

26 Jul

The set designs, colors, and almost voyeuristic/Marie Antoinette styling of the latest August 2011 Free People Lookbook is beautiful. It’s definitely inspiring as to how to live the second half of summer before the lower digit temperatures start rolling in again (traveling to Venice sounds like a nice idea…)

Style Me Like: The Craft

24 Jun

Exciting news, we’ve added a new section to the blog… The “Style Me Like” section is a place where we can really deconstruct our favorite things. If you have any suggestions of movies, locations, songs, etc. that you would like to “Style Me Like”, let us know!

The Craft was actually a movie that a few of us at Fyra were not allowed to watch as kids. So for me, at least, it’s been a pretty late discovery… one that really represents a 90’s era high school sentiment that can bring back that nostalgic feeling of being oh so different. We were, however, NOT blessed with such witchcraft talents as these four girls.

1. Leather Choker with Screwhead Spikes $39.99 | 2. Antiqued Silver Cross Earrings $2.25 | 3. MeMoi Knee High Socks $9.95 | 4. Dickies Girl’s Plaid Skirt $38.39 | 5. Black Silk Tuxedo Braces $34.99 | 6. Short Sleeve Blouse | 7. OPI Black Nail Polish $5.15 | 8. Manic Panic Blood Red Lipstick $8.45

There are some things a witch never leaves home without. Which witch does which? Well, to each his or her own… but one thing we find handy is a good read – try a grimoire or a book of shadows, there seem to be many versions nowadays! Oh, and you’ll need lots and lots of candles – not only are they used in many spells, but it really sets the mood, don’t you think?

1. Large Red Pillar Candle $5.99 | 2. Pack of Votive Candles $10.49 | 3. 1 Gallon Jar with Lid $13.99 | 4. Grimoire for the Green Witch Book $13.75 | 5. Garter Snake (photo source) | 6. Round Brass Bird Cages $18.99

“The best fashion show is always on the street, always has been, always will be.” – Bill Cunningham

This man is an inspiration for all…and not just those living in the fashion world! The Bill Cunningham New York movie gets an A+ from us.

Compare Avion Feminin to Fyra’s:  Vintage Red Blouse “The Shorthand Blouse”

Honestly, we hate markups, and the fashion world today just loves to do it… marking their items up a minimum of three to four times. Crazy.

On the left, red blouse from Avion Feminin. (Apparently it used to be $550) So how much did they buy it for? And WAIT, it’s not vintage?

Well, we got the goods: Need to add an air of professionalism to your wardrobe, but don’t want to go the boring route? We know just what you need. This 70s blouse is light, easy and subtly sexy. In the perfect lipstick red and finished with ties at top it’s the shorthand version of work wear. Check out the Shorthand Blouse.
