Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to check out what’s going on at Envy and in fashion! We'd like to send out a great big thank you to Red Hot Paris, Ashley and Courtney, for the video on fashion trends. You can check them out at RedHotParis via Instagram, they are a lot of fun and they really give meaning to the word “fashionista.”
Today and Tuesday we are going to discuss further the huge changes in fashion taking place this upcoming season. As you read these new drastically different clothing trends, think about your own personal style and what makes sense for your lifestyle and think about trying something new, fun, and daring as a “mood” alternative.
So as it goes, Romance is still in the fashion picture, it just gets a little darker! This is where mixing new with old becomes so exciting and opens up so many more choices in your wardrobe. Disestablishment and Rebellion are keywords Lisa Armstrong- fashion director for the telegraph-UK, uses to describe the mood! This is what we will be seeing on the runway for fashion week later this month.
We'd like to start with florals and colorful floral patterns. If you haven’t already started to see it, you will and it will be everywhere. Mens wear you will see a lot this season, complete with neckwear, femme bow ties, and plunging necklines. There will be plenty of pinstripes and numerous tweed. Tweed everything, needless to say, it’s not Granny’s tweed either. Menswear for the ladies is done so nicely based on what this winter has witnessed. The shoes loafers also worn with the suiting have an incredible feminine vibe off seen with an abundance of lace!
Lace, Lace, Lace. Anything and everything with lace will be the trend! Athleisure is here and in a big way and we believe it is here to stay. You will see athleisure wear dressed up. Hemmed joggers in opulent fabrics with a high heel and tailored jacket. This is the year of detail, everything from military jackets to blazers and denim will be embellished and for adorned.
The last thing we'll talk about prior to this Labor Day weekend is the decorative blouse. According to the fashionistas at Harpers Bazaar decorative blouses in jewel tones will replace the ever classic white button down. The blazer or jacket will be only secondary to the blouse. The blouse will be shown with ruffles, florals, scarf ties, lace inserts and metallic yokes.
On that note, we will leave you to mull over the trends and think about editing your closet when you come back from the last weekend of summer, technically speaking. We always dread the end of summer, but if it makes it better, we try to think of the heat leaving us for a while. It’s been a hot summer but hopefully a great one. Next week we will finish trends, have a fantastic weekend everyone!

First I would like to tell you a couple of things you may or may not know regarding Envy. We are now selling amazing Sam Edelman shoes as well as a select few Betsey Johnson kicks! Thus far everyone is loving the shoe selection, it really puts the icing on the cake when you can pair a perfect shoe with your clothing choices!
Secondly, we had an amazing turnout for the after party on July 11, following the season #7 opener of The Real Housewives Of New Jersey! Melissa Gorga was her usual gracious and engaging self, greeting and taking photos with every single visitor in attendance! If you missed it, not to worry, we will have several events before the end of the year.
We will let you know via this weekly info letter and through social media. You may also visit us on our online boutique at envybymg.com. Fall selections are beginning to arrive and I must say- they are fabulous and have excellent price points! We are also carrying some very beautiful Joseph Ribkoff for curvier customers!
Truly we try to provide something for everyone even in a small space. Being that I’ve been on a “love yourself” kick for the last month, I’ve taken some of the material that will follow, from a fantastic article by Isabel Marant and her “Fashion Philosophy”.
Based on the assumption that we want to dress with no effort yet look chic and stylish here are a few thoughts: You need really make fashion your own. Fashion in so many words is NOT IMPORTANT, but wearing what you love is what counts…
