Cute Summer Outfit Idea

I always love looking to fashion blogs, Pinterest and the streets of New York for my outfit inspiration. Yesterday, as I was walking to lunch I saw these two 20-something girls walking through Times Square each wearing a neutral top, a floral bottom and a pop of color with their accessories. I thought to myself, now that's a great outfit! Believe me when I tell you, great outfits are hard to come by with all of the tourists in the area but you'd be surprised how many socks with sandals and jorts occur (and not ironically).

The outfits got my juices flowing and I wanted to pick some items that we have in stock at Blackbird Attic to show you how easy it is (and inexpensive) to put a cute summer outfit together. Behold...the findings: 

JCrew Magenta Pink Crossbody Purse, $39.99

Keds Rally Glitter Toe Black Sneakers, Size 8.5, 29.99

Urban Outfitters Kimici Blue Tiered Corseted Strapless Dress, Size 6, $17.50, Retail $69

What do you guys think? Would you wear something like this?

Burning Red

There's just something about the color Red. It's classic, for sure. When I think of Red, I think of the 1940's-bright red lipstick, bright red nails and how they both drove the men wild.

The color red signifies passion-a hate, a love, a lust...you can see red just about anytime anywhere. It's such a powerful color that Taylor Swift dedicated a whole album to it.

Anyhow, just in case you also like to see Red, Blackbird Attic has plenty of Red items or Red inspired items. See for yourself below:

Denim Days

The same way nothing comes between Brooke Shields and her Calvin's, nothing comes between me and an amazing pair of jeans. My closet is stacked with jeans of many colors and designers from high end to low end. It may be my favorite piece of clothing to collect (shhhh! Don't tell my shoes!).

Many ladies can agree that once you find a brand that works with your body type it's like the skies open and the heavens start to sing. Regardless of the denim brand of your choice, it's also no secret that designer jeans just feel better on your legs than non-designer. However, designer jeans usually come at a hefty price tag. Luckily, you have Blackbird Attic on your side *wink*. Take a look at what we have in store below:

Joes "The Skinny" Jean I 28" Waist I $27.50 I Retails $169

Hudson Boot Cut Jeans Elm Color I Size 27" I $26.50 I Retail $192

Color Inspiration: Radiant Orchid

Awhile ago, we posted about the new Pantone color of the year being Radiant Orchid. With this sudden onslaught of gorgeous weather in New York its got us thinking of Summer's hot, go-to colors.

Inspired by this photo from Alicia King Photography featuring this Ella Moss dress, available at Blackbird Attic, we just HAD to post about it again! And could you just die for that flower crown?

This Radiant Orchid dress by Ella Moss is in an accessorizing class all it's own. Pair it with brown riding boots for a more casual look, or gold strappy stilettos for a classier affair.

Bright Ideas

One of the ways many people show their appreciation for art and color is wearing it. We're not talking about wearing sandwich board paintings on a street corner, we're talking about fashion.

When I was 18, I got my first credit card. I maxed it out within a week. Did I think I was some straight up baller like P.Diddy with a black card? Yup. My nasty little shopping habit wasn't such a bright idea for a college girl on a ramen and Diet Coke meal plan. But I did know one thing, I loved expressing myself through my clothes. Three part time jobs, a new credit card limit and some sweet Holiday sales later I was back on track. Luckily, our bright ideas at Blackbird Attic will only help your closet become more colorful at a fraction of the cost *wink*.

Cynthia Rowley Yellow Flower Top I Size M-L I $14.99

Staring at Stars Tulip Skirt I Size Small I $13.50
