Fall 2015 Trends

Trend’s are an excellent way to incorporate new things into your closet and try out new clothes. The best thing about trend’s is that you can take them to the extreme or try them out in an accessory.

Here’s a look into what is going to be the key trends in the Fall 2015 season.

Destroyed Denim

Destroyed Denim has been seen all over the runways this spring. Azure suggests paring with a rocker tee, plain v neck or even a silk tank for a dress down look on denim. Remember to cuff at the bottom as well ūüėČ

Lady Loafers

Say hello to the stacked kitten heel! Sexy but still comfortable these new stylish shoes will make any other fashionista jealous! Pair with some favorite denim or that skirt you’ve been dying to pull out of the closet!

Flat Boots

Burrr it’s gonna be cold out there soon enough! Designers seem to be reacting to the winter we have had in the past by making more & more fashionable & cold weather resistant boots! We would suggest the color black to go with EVERYTHING in your closet!

Glove Love

Gloves aren’t just for cold winter season A-Listers! They are making a compact all over the runways. Bring out your inner Amal Clooney & rock them on & off the red carpet!

Get Higher (Waisted)

As we all know, high waist has been around for awhile in the fashion industry but now, it is here to STAY! This fashion style past the belly button looks extremely slimming & elongates those legs! Pair with ANY shoes, we mean it; boots, pumps, wedges, & even knee highs!

Who Wears Short Skirts!?

WE do! This new fashion trend is here to stay because of the youthful look to these fashionable skirts. Guess what A-Listers? Love your legs too!, show them off to the world! Pair with pumps for a night out on the town or short booties for a everyday look.

One Sleeve Wonders

Yes! We are in love with this new look, nothing says Red Carpet like a one shoulder mini or gown! Not only is this fashionable but one sleeve is a genius way to show off that fabulous bag without any distracting sleeve in the way!

 

Celebrating Another Year with Love, Happiness and Sparkle…

Happy New Year’s Eve “Eve,” A-Listers!

As the 2015 year comes to a close the gals at Azure want to wish you all a Happy New Year.

What better way to say that than some on trend, and sparkly, New Year’s Eve party looks?!

We’re¬†going to start with some pieces that go fantastic with your favorite denim¬†that you have ready in your closet!

This¬†beautiful, black sequin top has an added detail at the hemline that gives a layered look without the “Michelin Man” bulk. It looks fabulous with¬†any colored skinny jean or just your sleek black or gray denim!

You can thank the designers from Generation Love for that perfect New Year top!

IMG_0409

The second top is a vegan leather peplum by BCBGMAXAZARIA with a gorgeous lace appliqué trim and shoulder detail. It looks so chic with any dark denim or if you want to add an edgy vibe to it pair it with some vegan leather AG Denim.

It just so happens that we have fabulous black, vegan leather, and dark wash jeans at Azure; we’ve got you covered! ūüėČ

Now that you’ve got your basics covered, let’s up the glam factor shall we?

This incredibly chic dress is by the ever glamorous designer, Amanda Uprichard!¬†The “Holiday Lights” fabric¬†is a luxurious satin material that drapes perfectly on the body.

We paired the dress with a simple, silver statement necklace from Alexis Bittar to add a little more shine to the matte outfit.

Our next New Year’s Party outfit is a classic red and black holiday pairing!

This adorable bow top by FRNCH is the perfect Holiday & New Year’s piece!

You can dress it down with a pair of deconstructed or distressed boyfriend denim. You can also dress it up with a great black pencil skirt or sleek black jeans.

IMG_0417

That trendy, feathered necklace that you see with the top is by Serefina and it’s a timeless piece that goes with almost any outfit!

The next outfit is inspired by one of our trendy A-Listers, Leanne!

She rocked her BCBGMAXAZARIA cutout top! We took her fashion advice and paired the top with a black skirt…BUT we used this fantastic, knee length,¬†BCBGMAXAZARIA sequined skirt to add that sparkle factor for any¬†New Year’s party!

IMG_0422

We used that same sequin skirt in our last outfit. We think that this skirt is a statement in itself so we tucked in our french blue Waverly Grey tank with it to showcase it’s¬†beautiful sparkle!

Oh, don’t worry though! The gals at Azure know that a ladies should look as good walking towards you as they do walking away from you. That being said, check out the back of this gorgeous top!

The little details make this top an elegant, no-brainer piece to have! It has an illusion, mesh back that go perfect inside those classy cutouts.

We added one of our favorite finishing touches to any outfit: Tess + Tricia!

This necklace has the same french blue and black speckled beads that go midway and are trailed by a classic gold chain. Don’t even get us started about that beautiful¬†one-of-a-kind antler…really don’t…we could go on for days!

Well, that’s all we have for this post! Don’t forget that Azure is open New Year’s Eve from 10am to 4pm for all your last minute New Year’s needs! ūüėČ

Style Squad: Christmas Edition

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, A-Listers!

With Christmas being only 22¬†days away, that’s only 3 Fridays left to shop by the way–YIKES, the gals at Azure have decided to share their top outfit, accessory, and stocking stuffer gift¬†for all things merry & bright this holiday¬†season!

Oh! You don’t have to worry about buying a bad¬†gift either because all of our stocking stuffers and on-trend outfits¬†are “Santa Clause¬†Approved!”

funny_christmas_santa_claus_stamp_of_approval_square_sticker-r3f95c51ac518456ca280161863923aac_v9i40_8byvr_324

Without further ado, here are the Azure gals’ top Christmas style ideas and gifts!

First up: Shanna–¬†Azure’s¬†beloved owner, buyer, and loving mother of 2!

Screen Shot 2015-12-01 at 11.34.08 PM

Here are her adorable kiddies, Miss Ruby & Baby Cole, now…

Aren’t they the cutest…anyway, we digress. ūüôā

Shanna’s favorite outfit for this Christmas season, and even into the New Year celebrations, is our new Lucy Paris sequin dress!

It is currently¬†being displayed in our front window with one of White + Warren’s¬†Cashmere Travel Wraps in a light cream color to finish off the festive holiday look.

To go with any cute holiday dress or skirt, we have Shanna’s favorite winter accessory: Luxe Leg Blackout Tights by Spanx!

Shanna has proudly worn a pair of these tights almost everyday since Azure first got them on the sales floor! These tights are a simple, staple piece that every A-Lister needs in their wardrobe!

Last but certainly not least, her¬†favorite accessory this season is our…

White + Warren Cashmere Hand Warmers!

IMG_0149

Not only is this a fantastic way to fight the windchill, it also adds a casual element of comfort to any outfit!

Did we mention it’s the perfect gift for those on the move,¬†driving gals who are not a fan of cold steering wheels (because let’s be honest, is anyone really a fan of a cold car).

They are also perfect for that gal who loves keeping up with social media, but  without having to pull off their bulky mittens to scroll through their news feed in these colder months!

Next up we have Lauren: Azure’s¬†spunky, mainstream boutique stylist!

11902449_10152987584262026_3254449351522182801_n

Lauren’s favorite holiday outfit is a classic white Equipment ¬†blouse, cozy scarf, dark denim and a festive, flash of gold!

Azure is so excited to introduce AG Denim to you, A-Listers!

Our Contour 360, black skinny jeans have a high-rise waist and a narrow leg for a streamlined fit. They are engineered to move like no other denim, each pair lifts and sculpts the body with advanced stretch technology that boasts excellent shape retention and unrivaled comfort.

In other words: don’t worry about candid, or posed,¬†photos with family this holiday season!

With these jeans, there is no such thing as a bad side.

It goes without saying that Lauren’s favorite accessory, or rather accessories, for this winter season are a cozy, plaid, flannel scarf or a gorgeous, golden, statement necklace by Serefina.

And finally, Lauren’s perfect stocking stuffer gift goes hand-in-hand with Shanna’s Cashmere Hand Warmers…

Our White + Warren Cashmere Headband!

IMG_0152

No need to worry about size, comfort, or if it will match with everything.

One size fits all, it’s made of cozy cashmere, and it is the perfect,¬†muted silver and heather gray color.¬†¬†It’s a no brainer gift for anyone!

Lastly, we have Sam: our newest boutique stylist with a minimalist take on fashion!

Screen Shot 2015-12-01 at 11.40.14 PM

Sam’s favorite Christmas outfit is Azure’s gorgeous Amanda Uprichard dress in a¬†festive evergreen color.

The open back gives a hint of drama while keeping that classy, chic “evening party” look!

The long sleeves make it an ideal winter dress, and ¬†Sam says “it’s always great for people who are cold all the time like me but don’t feel like bringing a¬†sweater with them that they might end up carrying¬†all night.”

Sam’s favorite accessory this season goes with her favorite outfit like clockwork…

IMG_0173.jpg

This beautiful Serefina layered necklace in silver is a perfect statement piece; it can also be seen in green and gold on the cover of Green Bay’s You Magazine starring one of our very own A-Listers: Molly Crosby!

11037155_10153123116307026_1230043249068568964_n

And finally, Sam’s favorite stocking stuffer gift is our chic¬†Rebecca Minkoff iPhone wristlets!

They come in all different colors for every age, occasion, and personality.

They are the perfect gift that will keep your friend’s phone and cards close at hand for your next Girl’s Night Out or shopping spree together! ūüôā

Well ladies, the gals at Azure hope that this helped give you some Christmas gift ideas and some fashion forward advice for all of your holiday endeavors!

Fall Accessory Central…

Hello A-Listers!

Are you in need of some fashion forward advice on how to accessorize your favorite look?

No worries! Let the gals at Azure help you make each outfit your own this autumn season!

Everyone has those staple pieces like our favorite scarf, wrap, or statement necklace and Azure is no exception!

We are so excited about our White + Warren Travel Wraps this season. They double, or rather triple, as scarfs, shawls, and a light jacket!

Screen Shot 2015-11-10 at 8.53.30 PM Screen Shot 2015-11-10 at 8.53.58 PM

It makes for a fantastic travel piece seeing as how it’s made with the coziest cashmere you’ve ever felt!

Don’t believe us? Take actress Ginnifer Goodwin’s word for it! ūüėČ

Let’s start with David Aubrey!

Screen Shot 2015-11-06 at 11.39.11 AM

Designer, Jennifer Arago, is inspired by texture and color.

Her goal is “to strike that perfect synergy of shapes, shades, and textures and deliver distinct and unexpected combinations.”

Screen Shot 2015-11-06 at 11.39.38 AM

David Aubrey styles range from sophisticated to whimsical; all of their pieces are timeless.

That makes for a bold statement right now as well as ten years from now!

Talk about an investment, right A-Listers?

Next, we have Alexis Bittar!Screen Shot 2015-11-10 at 9.35.51 PM

This designer is best known for his signature Lucite bangles. You know those crazy gorgeous bangles with the out-of-this-world coloring?

Alexis Bittar does a killer job at finishing off any outfit!

These pieces add a little edge to any outfit or help dress up a cool pair of jeans and a well-tailored jacket!

Last but certainly not least, we have Ellen Hunter!

Screen Shot 2015-11-10 at 9.52.54 PM

Here is the beautiful designer herself: Ellen Hunter!

Best known for her bridal accessories, Ellen Hunter NYC boasts a unique and timeless collection of combs, headbands, and one-of-a-kind flexible wreaths.

A Beautiful Bang for your Buck…

Hello A-Listers!

Have you heard of Tess + Tricia?¬†Oh, you haven’t?

Well, let us be the first to introduce you!

Mom and Daughter

Tess + Tricia is a talented mother/daughter duo from Excelsior, Minnesota. They first brought their our unique pieces to the market in 2013. They purchase all goods and materials within the US and manufacture their fabulous pieces right out of Minnesota.

They work hand-in-hand with a program based out of St. Louis Park called Perspectives, Inc.

housing11

Perspectives, Inc. is a multi-service agency whose award-winning prevention, intervention, and recovery programs span over three decades. Their target population is vulnerable, at-risk families and children whose lives have been derailed because of addiction, homelessness, or mental illness. Tess + Tricia provides these women with work, assembling their jewelry, that they do on their own time or during a workshop that Tess + Tricia provides weekly.

That being said, ladies, who¬†doesn’t love great jewelry with an even greater cause!?Screen Shot 2015-10-29 at 8.16.25 PM

Tess + Tricia¬†loves the parallel of natural beauty and components used to mirror each woman’s¬†own unique style.

Their simple creed is this: antler tips are what make us different; there is a simple beauty behind them that only nature can create.

In many cultures, shed antlers are a sign of wisdom, courage, and growth‚ÄĒfor when the deer sheds them, they have reached a fresh, new chapter in their life.

Screen Shot 2015-10-29 at 8.17.06 PM

All of the¬†antler tips come from a handful of states in the west. All of the tips used are naturally shed annually by the deer‚ÄĒTess + Tricia does not harm any animals.

Whether you’re getting cozy in a sweater or dressing up for date night, these¬†necklaces are statement pieces that will add a little character¬†to any outfit!

Screen Shot 2015-10-29 at 8.17.57 PM Screen Shot 2015-10-29 at 8.16.08 PM

Tess + Tricia does two types of necklaces: The signature antlers and simplistic, layering pieces.

The necklaces come in all different lengths, colors, and styles that are designed to be uniquely beautiful!

Screen Shot 2015-10-29 at 9.07.27 PM Screen Shot 2015-10-29 at 9.07.13 PM

Azure is proud to be a retail location for these gorgeous, must-have jewelry pieces!

While the layering pieces are fabulous staple accessories alone, they are meant to be worn with any of the show-stopping antler statement necklaces.

Screen Shot 2015-10-29 at 8.58.47 PM Screen Shot 2015-10-29 at 8.57.59 PM

You can find¬†some more style inspiration by checking out Tess + Tricia’s Instagram (@tessandtricia)!

Screen Shot 2015-10-29 at 8.58.16 PM

We will be hosting our own Tess + Tricia Trunk Show on Friday, November 20th 8am to 6pm!

No, that was not a typo! We are extending our shopping hours that day for more fall, fashion fun!
