Monster Mash

Maybe Kanye West was onto something when he came out with the song Monster.  We’d hate to boost his ego even more but the monster trend has been escalating immensely ever since the song’s release. How cute are these monster-influenced fashions? We couldn’t wait until winter to show them off! fur-accessory-2 Street Pepper

Camo Print Craze

Bet you didn’t think that camouflage would be making a comeback. The utilitarian influenced print has been making a major comeback. We love how the neutral based pattern toughens up even the most feminine outfits. natasha-goldenberg-fw13

Great Gatsby Inspiration

Few films have had such a powerful impact on fashion in the way that the Great Gatsby has.  The fashion sense of the roaring 20’s has influenced retailers and those counting down the days for the May 10th release. Brooks Brothers and Tiffany & Co created costumes for the films but we have been seeing an astonishing number of customers coming into M&J looking to recreate Daisy Buchanan’s Tiffany & Co headpiece.  The ART DECO fashion of the ‘20s was nothing short of amazing and we’re certainly glad it’s back.

Paris Fashion Week: Evening Wear

The evening wear showcased at Paris Fashion Week combined hard and soft looks. With peplum waists, feather detailing and cut-outs currently on trend it may not be too difficult to replicate these looks. The black and white based collections feature many tee length skirts paired with ballet flat shoes. This is a different approach compared to the clunky shoes dawned in years passed.

Here are a few of our favorite looks…
