Spotlight on Store Owner: Theresa Johnson

“Owning and buying for a fashion boutique in Newport Beach, California is a dream come true,” says buyer and owner Theresa Johnson, and this fall season’s trends feel as if they were planned with Newport in mind.  Every start to a new season reminds her of what she loves to do. Here are a few of her favorite trends.

#1- Green; From emerald green to army green there is a whole movement going on and we love it in every shade. Try a simple addition to your wardrobe by picking up a tee in Cortez from Michael Stars, army colored jeans from AG, or simply a great accessory like a classic pattered scarf! Don’t forget how elegant emerald can look when paired with other jewel tones, such as sapphire, amethyst and garnet!




#2- Back to nature; Strong focus on cozy knits, fur trimmed jackets and boots. This year it’s all about layering hues of color, for example, from java to cobblestone to sand all in one look,  and then add the perfect beanie to tie it all together!

#3- The new neutral gray; This color has become an irresistible neutral to pair with different tones, such as, slate, charcoal, and platinum gray. This is a strong color to experiment with color blocking, another fall trend this season. The best thing to remember is to have fun with it, make it your own!

Gray Gray Gray!

#4- Outerwear; Statement making manifests itself with faux fur jackets, coats, and knit bombers. They’re not only there to keep you warm but also serve as the main focus of your look. Faux fur coats are an ultimate winter staple this season, remember to consider the rest of your outfit when rocking these coats. Keep everything else simple.

#5- Street Wise; Clean with a touch of leather. Nobody does it better than Bailey44, from chic dresses with leather bodices to fitted vests with leather fronts and knit backs. The most important part of your street wise look is to keep it simple and sophisticated with an edgy touch.

Style Tips for the Modernshopgirl: Tribal Print

Tribal print is everywhere this spring/summer season and here at Modernshopgirl we are no exception. We love the fresh patterns and new color combos.There are so many fun ways to wear this trend; here are some tips to embrace the your inner indian princess without the feather headdress.

#1 – Keep the print small if you are daring enough to try Lucky Brand’s head to toe tribal print dress. The small geometric patterns and darker colors keep the look simple but chic. Add sleek and modern jewelry like Dogeared’s long Karma necklace and silver bangles. An easy earthy tote completes the look.

#2 – You don’t have to match, just compliment. We paired Free People’s tribal print skinny with a Michael Stars navy tank and Lucky Brand’s lace trim cardigan in oatmeal. The tank brings out the dusty blue in the pants and the cardi gives the look a relaxed vibe.

#3 – Add a neutrals! Ella Moss’s tribal print cold shoulder top has flare to spare. Rich & Skinny‘s Coronado crop in sand keep the look simple and keeps the focus on the print. Again we went with sleek modern jewelry. A gold cuff and layered chains are the perfect pair.

Modernshopgirl: Inspired by Coachella 2012

Here at Modernshopgirl we are loving all the easy bohemian fashions inspired by Coachella. Cut off shorts, hippie accessories, rock star tees and gladiator sandals; we adore it all! For those of you who didn’t score those coveted tickets, we put together a little  list of what to wear whether you are going to “carpoolchella” to Indio or just rocking out at home.

- Tie your hair back! Keep comfy and cool with Natural Life’s bracelet/hair tie with inspirational words. Be Happy. Believe. Peace.
- Free People’s festival tunic is a must have for any Coachella inspired outfit. Wear it over a swimsuit or pair with Lucky Brand’s Riley cut off short.
- Trek around in these gilded gladiator sandals by Gomex, just $39!
- It is hot in the Coachella Valley! Keep the sun off your face in Michael Stars straw fedora.
- Grab a Joia Navajo printed scarf for a nomadic inspired look.
- No bohemian look is complete without layer jewelry. Build your own necklace with Nashelle’s initial & jewel charms. Add Dogeared’s 3 ring long Karma necklace and a Chan Luu Turquoise wrap bracelet and you are set.
- Sleeveless band tees are essential! Our fav is Chaser’s Slayer over-sized tank.
- Finally, snatch up Natural Life’s hemp cross body bag with a earth-centered sustainable message.
