Kicking it at Kick Pleat

Bonjour, mes amies! Kay B here with another article for you all. I hope you all are feeling more rested than I am at the start of the new week- I feel like I have been on the run every day since last week, and this weekend was no different.

On the bright side, I was kept busy with lots of fun and exciting activities- one of them being going to Kick Pleat in Austin to interview designer Miranda Bennett!

We had a great chat together, and you can read all about that interview here.

For those of you who are don’t know, Kick Pleat is a women’s clothing, shoes and accessories store with an airy aesthetic and clean design that will transport you to the finest of high-fashion dreams.

The exterior and interior design of the store speak to the vibe of the clothes and accessories that grace the racks and shelves of Kick Pleat. A woman will walk in through their doors and immediately feel empowered to breathe life into her unique persona through the many ensembles and pieces that Kick Pleat has to offer. I had so much fun looking around and venturing through the shop.

Each section of the store has its own voice and speaks to each customer uniquely and individually. Just as every woman has her individuality, you won’t find anything like what you will discover within the white mod walls of Kick Pleat.

My favorite parts of the store were the dressing room and the shoe stadium, by far. Can we just talk about this stadium for a minute? Goals, without a doubt.

Of course, I want to share my outfit with you all from my Kick Pleat visit. It was a daytime event, so I decided not to dress up too much while keeping it light and classy on sweltering spring day. (Seriously, “spring” in Texas is in the upper 80’s…)

Top: Candie’s | Shorts: H&M | Booties: | Coach | Sunglasses: Aldo | Purse: Mix No. 6

It was such a beautiful day outside, though I’m almost certain that Texas skipped the spring season and went straight for summer. So I wanted to wear light and loose garments while still looking put together. I chose for my makeup look of the day to be a light one as well, in regards to color tones as well as application. The Mac Pro Longwear foundation is my holy grail on beating hot days such as Friday. Let me know if you want to hear more about my makeup and skincare routine!

Can you tell that I was (and still am) obsessed with this shoe stadium? I can’t get over it- and don’t believe I ever will…

My outfit for this  day was pretty neutral in my blouse and booties, so I brought a pop of color to my ensemble with my cinch waist shorts from H&M. I love these because while they are a longer pair of shorts, they’re loose and airy enough to wear on the hottest of day. Not to mention, the cinched waist is not only a beautiful addition of detail, but is also very flattering. When worn with a loose shirt tucked in or even a fitted blouse, it draws attention to your waistline and makes it look smaller in your mid-section

If that doesn’t win you over, then you should know that these shorts have pockets. AND a drawstring bow. You’re welcome.

I had so much fun visiting Kick Pleat, interviewing Miranda Bennett, and shooting for this article. I’m so happy to be back on the blog and can’t wait to share even more with you guys. Look out for some exciting new additions and changes around here soon… I think you guys will like what I have in store for you all. (: Don’t forget to keep up with me on all my socials (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook) and very soon we’ll be adding YouTube to the mix! Also, big thanks to Angie for the photography- go ahead and check out all of her photography here.

Sending lots of love to you all, and wishing you a wonderful rest of your day or night! Until next time, lovies…

Stay Fab,

Miranda Bennett x Kick Pleat

Hello hello, my darlings, and happy Monday!

To much surprise, I am not dead, but I have returned to “slay the game” yet again. (; That’s what I hear the kids saying nowadays, so I thought I’d be a cool kid and give it a try.

I know I took a long hiatus from The Studded Collar, and I was surprised at how much time had passed since I was last here on these pastel pages. However, as of late, I have been planning a lot of exciting new changes and even more fun content that I am beyond excited to share with you all. Eventually, I will publish an article detailing more of what has passed and what is yet to come, but until then, stay tuned for today’s exciting share.

On Friday, I had the chance to meet and interview Austin-based designer Miranda Bennett at Kick Pleat. Ms. Bennett is an Austin based fashion designer focused on sustainable fashion. All of her garments are produced here in the USA and the textiles are naturally dyed in-house. Meeting such a talented designer was such an honor and I had so much fun chatting with and getting to know her. Read on to learn more about the local designer, brand, and what keeps her inspired.

Kay B: You focus on sustainable fashion – what made you gravitate to plant dyed apparel?

Miranda Bennett: I think the main [idea] for me was reducing the toxic effects of creating apparel. The garment industry is not known for its environmental consciousness. Thankfully, recently, it has become a lot more of a focal point, and there’s been a lot more transparency in people’s production process. I mean, for me, there’s that side of it- the environmental impact – but from the aesthetic side of it, I just felt like the pigments and the colors I could get from natural dyes were really special and had a really unique quality to them. I also love that we can formulate the colors in-house and on a small scale. I think that gives us a nice advantage in terms of being a small line because we can create things that are unique to the studio that we formulate and dye ourselves.

KB: You call your pieces “seasonless” and I found that to be a term I gravitated towards more than timeless. What you define a  seasonless piece to be?

MB: My thinking with that is that it’s something that you can literally wear through the seasons and year round whether it’s a matter of layering it differently or accessorizing it differently. It also, to me, indicates that it is something you are going to have season after season. So the idea is that these are like heirlooms or forever pieces so their things that you would have in your closet and draw on the following week, the following month, or the following years. It refers to a “wearablity,” but also something that you’ll have past a certain trend point or a certain season.

KB: So would you say that they’re pretty breathable and easy to layer?

MB: All of the fabrics are natural fibers, so inherently, they’re gonna be more breathable. We use primarily silk, linen and cotton.

KB: You like to say that there’s a dialogue between all the editions that you release – how do you maintain a fluid conversation between your pieces?

MB: We basically have core silhouettes that are the linchpin of the collection. What I mean by that dialogue is that with each new edition, we’re re-examining the cut and the fit of those core pieces, and we’re going to execute them in new fabrics or new color ways, or play with the proportions. That continuous dialogue means here’s the style that’s been a really well established piece of the collection- how does it react we alter the length or add a sleeve, do it in a different fabric… or even seeing it in a different colorway. But it can also inform other styles that can kind of gravitate around those core pieces, so as we introduce new silhouettes, there are definitely departures from our existing core styles.

KB: Do you like to sometimes look at the first edition and see how it has progressed to your most recent one, then examine that flow to get inspiration from that?

MB: Yeah, definitely! And that’s something that even on our Instagram- every time we share a different piece of apparel, we also reference when it was first introduced in that fabrication just to kind of hearken back to that and contextualize those pieces.

KB: Where do you get your inspiration from when you’re coming up with new editions and new pieces?

MB: The launching point is the way that a garment drapes on a woman’s body. It’s really less about having a very literal theme and more about wearablity, and drape, and ease and how something can be flattering to different body types. A starting point is pieces that we already have and kind of looking at how they’ve worked, what was successful about them. There’s definitely also those flashes of seeing a style, or shape, or color and then kind of inform that. It’s always, for me, going to go back to drape. I’m not a sketcher, I’m a draper, so for me it comes from being very hands on and seeing how something wears.

KB: Lastly, I have to ask- what is your favorite thing about fashion in Austin? It’s very quirky and different from other cities in Texas like Dallas, where I’m from.

MB: I think just the personality of people’s style. I think everyone here has a very personal approach to how they dress and carry themselves. It’s not necessarily very trend based, it’s very unique and idiosyncratic. [Also] the acceptance that comes with it- that people can dress and present themselves how they feel is appropriate to them rather than feeling like they have to have a homogeneous style or trend based style.

A big thank you to Miranda Bennett for taking some time to chat with me, and to Kick Pleat for hosting Ms. Bennett and helping get us together for the interview. We also got to vlog a bit, and that video will be up on my YouTube channel soon. (: (Yes, I have a YouTube channel! More details on that to come…)

If you want to see the garments and editions that Miranda Bennett has brought to life, feel free to visit and peruse her website.

Also, thank you to Angie for your photography skills! You guys can check out more of her photos here.

I’m so glad to be back in the blogging game, and I can’t wait to share even more with you guys! There’s more to come, and I’m so excited for what’s in store. I love you all so so much, and until next time…

Stay Fab,

Spring Into It

Hey babes, and Happy Spring!

Sunday was the first day of Spring, my absolute favorite season. It’s a time for new beginnings, the turning of a new leaf, and everything is in full bloom. It’s absolutely beautiful and is a great, fresh start. You know what else has a fresh start? Fashion, of course. Everything is brighter, fresher, and there are so many more styles to explore.

With that, I’d like to share five of my favorite must-have items on my wishlist for the season from a store by same name, Spring. Spring is a fashion forward, online store for men, women, and children. It has items from all of your favorite companies and from cool, new brands that you are yet to discover. All the following items in my spring wishlist are from Spring’s accessories page. Click here to head over and see it all for yourself! A picture is worth a thousand words, so enough of this chit chat- let’s spring into it!

1. Sun’s Out Shades Out

Illesteva_Boca II Pink

Boca II in Pink by Illesteva

As the springtime comes, so does the sun! A pair of fun sunglasses are definitely a must-have this season, and I particularly love this pair by Illesteva. As you guys know, I am a sucker for a good pair of sunglasses, especially a funky set of frames. This pair caught my eye because of the gorgeous color. Pink is a color that compliments almost every skin tone, and this set is particularly on trend because it matches the color of the year, Rose Quartz.

2. About Time…

Daniel Wellington Classic sheffield rose gold watch 36 mm

Classic Sheffield Rose Gold Watch, 36mm by Daniel Wellington

This spring, I’ll be an even bigger advocate for arm candy. A great way to spice up your look without stacking just bracelets is adding a watch- stylish and functional. Daniel Wellington is a brand that I have loved for quite a while and is one that I seem to be seeing around more often as of late. The sleek, simple design is stunning, and is the perfect watch for any occasion. The best part is that the bands are interchangeable. This is what I love the most because DW has several gorgeous bands that can take your watch from simply sophisticated to vibrant and fun without having to change your entire watch itself. Talk about versatility!

3. Sharp Elegance

JOOMI LIM_Lost Innocence Spike Necklace with cream pearls..gold_silver spikes

Lost Innocence Spike Necklace with Cream Pearls by Joomi Lim

Chokers are a vintage trend that made a comeback last season, but this version of the trend takes this look to a whole new level. I think it’s pretty evident that I love studs and collared shirts given that the name of my blog combines the two details. Now, when you’re able to combine the two or bring them together in some way, you have won the style game in my book. That’s why I love this studded, pearl choker by Joomi Lim. It’s the perfect way to spice up a simple top or add an extra umph to a collared shirt.

3. Bag It Up

3.1 Phillip Lim_Pashli Medium Satchel- White-peach

Pashli Medium Satchel in White-Peach by 3.1 Phillip Lim

A purse is definitely a necessity this season, and I think that versatility should be found in anything you wear or use to accessorize your look. This shoulder bag also doubles as a crossbody with an extra long shoulder strap, which allows you to wear it however you choose. This white-peach color is fresh, bright, and airy and compliments both casual and dressy outfits. I love the symmetrical and geometric design of this purse as it adds some edge to an already soft and feminine bag. This purse, and others like it, will be high up on my list for sure.

5. Dawn Your Crown

Wren+Glory_Spike Halo

Spike Halo by Wren + Glory

Wren+Glory_Branch Halo

Branch Halo by Wren + Glory

As most of you guys know (or don’t know), I’m a senior in high school. Sometimes, I have days that I wake up and feel super lazy, so I just brush my hair and leave it down, simply, or throw it up in a bun and rush out the door. This spring is a better time than any to spice up any simple hair look with a textured headband, halo, or simple crown such as these by Wren + Glory. I love the elegant yet fun look of these headbands and the various styles that can be made with them.

Well, that’s my Spring Wishlist of must-haves for you guys! I hope you all liked it, and let me know in the poll below which item was your favorite. Also, feel free to share in the comments below what items are on your Spring wishlist either from the store, Spring, for this season, or both! Go on and check out Spring’s Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest for more spring inspiration. Thanks so much for reading, and I’ll chat with you guys soon. Until next time…

STRUT into Spring Break + Giveaway!!

Happy Studded Collar Sunday, friends!

I hope you all had a lovely, restful weekend, and are ready to take on the new week. If you guys are in the same position as me, then this is your last week until Spring Break- a week every student is eagerly looking forward to, I’m sure. Now, ladies, whether you gals are getting ready for an exotic vacation or a fun-filled staycation, you’re all probably planning your outfits and hoping to look your best (vacations and breaks equals pictures galore).

So, I partnered up with Strut to bring you guys a fun lookbook of stellar looks that you can look to for inspiration as you plan out what you’ll be wearing this Spring Break season. These three outfits are perfect for the spring season and range from casual to dressy. I think that’s enough chit-chat, so let’s spring into it! (:

Cool & Casual

I absolutely love this simple, grey, jersey dress. I know spring is usually all about color, especially pastels, but the neutral color truly makes this dress the perfect blank canvas with so many styling possibilities. Because of it’s simplicity, I opted for a gold, multi-layered necklace so as to add a little edge and umph to the neckline.

image

Okay, my favorite part of the dress is the oversized, wide arm holes. It’s the perfect opportunity to show a little bit of detail while maintaining a classy look. I decided to wear a triangular, black lace bralette under the dress, and result was fabulous. I love, love, love the lacy detail peeking though, adding a darker color to the look and some lace for femininity.

imageimage image image image image

I don’t know about you, but I am quite the fan of this brown, fringe crossbody purse. It’s simple, but adds dimension to this simple outfit with the large, flowy tassels. It’s such a cute accessory, and it’s perfect for a casual, on the go outfit.

Edgy Boho Babe

This outfit is a bit dressier than the first but still airs on the casual side. All the while, it’s nice enough to wear out to a nice lunch with the girls or just a fun day out on the town. This romper is another neutral, yes, but the floral pattern ties in the newness of spring perfectly.

image image image image image image

One of my favorite parts of this outfits is the balance of softness and edge. The romper is floral, feminine, and flowy, and my pointed toed flats are soft, simple and muted black. Plus, my cream, lace bandeau peaking through makes this outfit even flirtier. On the other hand, my major statement necklace is sharp and eye catching with the geometric shapes, and the black, circular, wide rimmed hat adds some attitude. I’m also obsessed with the tortoise patterned wayfarers. Yes, I’m wearing a hat and sunglasses, but you can’t be too protected, right?

image image image image image image image

All I have to say about this purse is that it is to die for. Take it from day to night in a heartbeat, and the gold hardware is precious. Versatile and lovely.

image image image

All Dressed Up

image image image image image

This is, without a doubt, my favorite outfit in this lookbook. If you guys must know one thing about me, it’s that I’m a sucker for dresses and florals. Needless to say, this little number stole my heart in a flash. It’s very flowy, so opportunity for flattery is very present. The hemline is ever so slightly high-low, with makes the dress a bit more dramatic. I dressed it up with some black, strappy wedges and a soft gold clutch and was ready to hit the streets.image image image image image

Ok, I am head over heels, madly in love with these sunnies. They’re silver and reflective, but my favorite part is the fact that it’s round with a cat eye frame all at once. The wire on the edge of the frames is so edgy, and I love, love love it.

image image image

Pro-tip: If you guys are looking for some comfortable, black, strappy AND edgy wedges/heels, then go buy a pair from Strut. They have the best shoes that are both gorgeous and comfy. Beauty isn’t always pain, ladies!

image

Because of the keyhole design on the front of this dress, I chose a long statement necklace so as not to distract from the pattern and gorgeous cutout. I also chose a complimentary gold clutch to match.

image image image image

I hope you guys enjoyed this little Spring Break lookbook Strut and I put together for you guys! I had so much fun, and a big thanks to Strut for having some fun with me. I do have a little surprise for you guys, too.

Spring Break: Day Makeup Look

Hi hi, loves, and happy Friday!

I am super excited about this article because it’s the first time I’ve ever done anything like this. With Spring Break just around the corner, I thought I would come to you with a few fun articles just in time for every student’s week in the Spring.

Today, I’m coming to you guys with a Day to Night Makeup tutorial. It’s fairly easy, and it’s pretty versatile because you can have a nice day look that can easily be turned into a darker, more defined evening look without removing any of your makeup. You could also do each one individually and rock it however you like! Anyway, let’s get started with the day look. (:

Photo Credits: Erin Smith

1. First, we’re going to start with a fresh face. Make sure to wash your face so that your makeup goes on smoothly.

bare face

2. Next, I’m using my foundation to even out my skin. I mix these two foundations to match my skintone- I’m combining Covergirl TruBlend in the shade d6 and Covergirl Outlast 2 in 1 in the shade Honey Almond. You can use your fingers, a sponge, or a brush to blend in your foundation, depending on your preference.

DSC_0037step1.1 step 2.2

3. Now, I’m using my Elf HD Lifting Concealer on my eyes to even out the color as well as prime my eyelids.

DSC_0075DSC_0077

4. Now, I’m going to use my Kabuki brush to set my concealer and foundation with my matte powder by Covergirl in Honey Almond.DSC_0061foundation done2

5. Now let’s work on the eyes. I’m going to use this Rose Blush pink shadow all over my eyelid. It’ll brighten my eyes and, since it’s so bright, it will illuminate the other colors I use and make them appear more pigmented.DSC_0088 DSC_0100

6. Now, on the outer corners of the lid and the outer half of my under eyes, I’m going in with this warm Cocoa Brown shadowDSC_0113DSC_0122 DSC_0117

7. Now it’s time to put this lighter brown shade in the crease to define our eye shape.DSC_0127DSC_0119

8. Next, we’ll use a black pencil liner on the upper eyelid for definition. I’m using the shade Black Out by Ulta. After applying it to my top lid, I will smudge it a bit with a smudge brush to make the appearance thicker and smokier.DSC_0141 DSC_0152

9. This is one of my favorite parts of my makeup routine- filling in my eyebrows. Looking at the difference just makes me feel accomplished because a good eyebrow job equals a good day. (: This is the difference between my eyebrows when done and undone.DSC_0187

10. Now, it’s time to frame our eyes by applying mascara to our lashes. I’m using Colossal Volume by Maybelline for a separated, fanned out look.DSC_0202DSC_0203

11. After this, it’s time to put our highlight and bronzer on our cheekbones. I’m using Warm Bronzer by Elf, and I’m using the lighter shade on the left to highlight my cheekbones.DSC_0227

12. Now it’s time to add some color to our cheeks with a rosy blush. This is Dust Rose from Sephora.DSC_0324

13. Finally, we shall apply a tinted balm for a pop of color on the lips. I chose Maybelline’s Baby Lips in Pink Punch. I chose a tinted balm as opposed to a lip stick or lip gloss because it keeps your lips hydrated throughout the day, and the color lasts really well for several hours while on the go without looking to harsh. Perfect for a casual day look.
kayb

Here you have it- the final look! I love this makeup look because it perfectly defines all your features without going to overboard for a casual day. It’s pretty versatile, and the eye makeup looks good with any eye color because the colors used are pretty neutral.

DSC_0255 DSC_0250
If you wanted to define any parts of your makeup look more or less, then you’re able to do so and still look well put together. In fact, this makeup look can easily be transformed into an evening look without removing one swipe of makeup. You can even do the night makeup look on its own for an evening out! If you want to see the continuation of this evening makeup look, stay tuned on the blog for part two. (:

Thank you guys so much for checking out this tutorial. It’s my first one and there will plenty more to come! I hope you enjoyed it and, most of all, just have fun! Until next time…DSC_0269

Lady in Black: NYFW Edition

Hey hey, my darlings. Happy September and Happy Studded Collar Sunday! It’s crazy how fast time flies as we say goodbye to the summer and begin to welcome the fall season.

IMG_3737

Dress: Vince Camuto | Shoes: Steve Madden | Jewelry: gifted | Purse: gifted

Photography: Anna Grace Votteler

With the fall season comes New York Fashion Week, and this past Thursday, I was able to kick off the NYFW festivities in style with Allison Mitchell’s private preview party for her SS 2015/2016 Collection.

IMG_3736IMG_3726

I opted for a classic look, and what’s more classic than a little black dress? I love that the chiffon overlay of this dress is tea-length while the thicker dress layer underneath is knee-length. It adds a funky yet simple dimension to the look of the dress as well as modernizing what some like to think of as a “dated hemline.” I also really like that the dress combines a sleeveless cut with a turtleneck neckline. It’s simply unique and it makes this dress easier to transition from summer to fall- a richly colored jacket or coat over this number and come heeled booties would make this dress easy to “fall” for. (pun very much so intended.)
IMG_3732 IMG_3730IMG_3733IMG_3724

I wish you guys could have seen the back of this dress- it made what seems like a simple, black shift dress stellar. the turtleneck collar wraps around and becomes similar to a shirt collar in the back. Then, along the center and down the back of the dress, a gold hardware zipper lines the dress. To add to the impeccable details, the chiffon layer splits down the middle so that the gold zipper is visible and adds a kick to this outfit. I’ll have to share a picture of it with you guys so you can see it.IMG_3718 IMG_3720 IMG_3714IMG_3725 IMG_3713

My dress was black with gold detailing, my shoes were black with gold studded detailing, and even my eye makeup was pretty dark with a slight gold tint gracing my lids, so I definitely wanted to add some color to this ensemble. I went for red because it’s bold and contrasts beautifully with all the black and gold details. It wasn’t too much and added a great pop of color to an otherwise dark outfit.

IMG_3716

Tip: If you want to vamp up your neutral or simple outfit, a bold statement necklace is definitely a lifesaver. If it’s in a bold color, pattern, or design and contrasts well when worn against one or two solid colors, you have a winner!

Putting together this outfit was almost as fun as the party was! It was so great to see Allison and her gorgeous handbags again, and I had so much fun catching up with old friends and making new ones like Jane Aldridge of Sea of Shoes. Fun fact she was the first fashion blogger that I knew about and read, and she had a hand in inspiring me to start TSC, so it was quite humbling to meet her- she is even lovelier in person and such a sweetheart. Be sure to check out her blog!

Allison worked long and hard on designing a gorgeous line for the coming year, and it definitely showed! Her work is impeccable, modern and definitely one of a kind. She designed her over-sized clutches to be functional, fashion-forward and different, and they definitely turn heads and get people talking. They’re made locally with dyed Connecticut calf hair, and you can see the quality in her work. It was pretty cool to see her bags before they made their debut on the runways of New York and Paris Fashion Week. If you want to see more of Allison’s work, head over to her website to check out the rest of her gorgeous bags for yourself!

Sunny Days and an Endless Summer

Happy Tuesday, friends! Welcome to another Studded Collar article where we shall experience another excerpt from my style journey. (:

We are now in the heart of summer, and it’s crazy to think that I am already half way through my summer break! I have been out, about, and on the run ever since I was let out for summer break, and now that I’m approaching the halfway mark, I’m realizing how much I’m wishing for an endless summer. I thought it would be nice to take a break from the hustle and bustle to take a trip to the park for a little bit. Plus, it was such a great excuse to wear my new Ray-Ban glasses from Ditto!

IMG_3089

Dress: H&M | Shoes: Target | Sunglasses: RayBan c/o Ditto

IMG_3092 IMG_3104IMG_3125This is such a simple look that is quick and easy to throw on while still looking put together. Dresses can be as casual as can be, but with the right accessories like these Ray-Bans in the style 4171 Erika, you can look even cooler on the hottest of summer days. This is one of my favorite summer dresses, and I think these simply chic glasses took my outfit to the next level.
IMG_3122IMG_3080 IMG_3132 IMG_3138 IMG_3175IMG_3165 IMG_3183
