Trend Tuesday: Midi Skirts & Tshirts

midiskirt-tshirt Re-introduce yourself to a trend that doesn’t seem to be going away and that I fully support because of my love of ironic & silly tees; the midi skirt & tshirt. It seems like every blogger/editor/it-girl sported the trend at all fashion weeks and you can too. Let’s be honest, midi FULL skirts aren’t universally flattering, but you can also pair it with a midi pencil skirt. Both looks are super fresh and can be dressed up and down. We have the perfect TIBI midi full skirt at Beckley, check her out below. -KH

“Factory Man” a short film about the NYC Garment District

I’ve been working in the NYC garment district for 5 years now (ever since I graduated college and moved here). I have developed some amazing relationships and love being able to continue to support. In this short clip you will see the factory owner of where I develop all of BeckleybyMelissa. Johnny is one of my favorite people, he loves working with designers on their vision. He is in every fitting and development meeting. I love his entire team and am so happy that this video was made to show the struggles he’s overcome to keep his doors open and make him one of the best (if not the best) in New York. Enjoy!! -KH

Trend Tuesday: Knot it!

Polished Top Knot

Messy Top Knot

The saying “long hair, don’t care” has infiltrated throughout the internet in various memes.  If we are being honest with ourselves the only time we don’t care about our appearance is when we are knee deep in potato chips and a Netflix binge. However, I have found a caveat to this rule recently. Ladies meet the half top knot.

This low maintenance style will show off the length and highlights of your locks while still putting your best face forward. You can keep it clean and sleek with a tight slicked back knot. Our personal favorite is slightly messy and tousseled with a bright lip. The beauty of this look is that it works best with slightly dirty hair, can you say monday morning hair? Take a no frills risk and get knotty. -CD

The Perfect Hat to take you into Fall!

I love wearing hats in the fall, but I have a hard time finding the perfect one. When I was in Berlin in January (and it was freezing, obviously) my friend and I kept exchanging hats to mix it up and she had this colorblocked J.Crew hat that I never wanted to take off. It has all of the right things and at $40 it looks way more expensive. It’s only day 3 of fall so I’m not ready to dive into fall dressing yet (neither is the weather) but this is a good transitional piece! -KH
