Look who’s back to wow us once again with her flawless style: Miss Joanna Hillman! You all know how much of a style crush I have on the market editor of Harper’s Bazaar, and with good reason.

Joanna took on new denim and global themes at once with her amazing tasseled smock dress. Her modern gladiator sandal pairing is pitch-perfect, and Joanna’s trademark bold lip adds all the color she needs.

On the heels of opening night at the Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF), we had the fashion-film treat of a lifetime: a chance to watch a rare screening of the new documentary Dior and I, followed by an audience Q&A with director Frédéric Tcheng.

A quote from the July 2012 issue of Vogue, found on SIFF’s website, best describes the film’s ambitious premise: “If there’s ever been a show that the fashion world has waited with absolute bated breath to see, it’s this one: Raf Simons’ debut for Christian Dior.” Simons, best known for minimalist menswear, had a short eight weeks to create his first haute couture collection for the legendary French fashion house.

Keep reading for insights straight from the source—director Frédéric Tcheng—on how he was able to document this pivotal moment in fashion history.

We may be halfway around the world, but I still managed to track down two of our favorite blog babes: Chriselle Lim & Aimee Song! These two are consistently flawless.

While Chriselle is working a prep school chic vibe, Aimee went for edgy lady. The full, pleated skirt is a big hit here in Paris, and these two lovelies are the perfect poster girls!

Bonjour, mes amis! I’m back and having a blast in Paris, thanks to the amazing style of ladies like Laetitia. Paris is the absolute perfect place to get fashion inspiration.

I will definitely be copying this look, head to toe. I love suiting, and the cozy grey palette gives Laetitia an air of casual cool that is effortlessly chic. Now all I need is to find that perfect shade of red lipstick!

It’s no question that peplum details and metallics are major trends right now. Ashley is upping her style quotient with mixed prints, statement jewelry, and ankle booties. As a stylist, it’s no surprise that Ashley is ahead of the curve.

While she credits blogs and street style as an inspiration, she says that New York City is her greatest muse.

Warmer Days to Come

Our post-holiday Seattle Flagship window displays are all about sunny getaways and transitional dressing into spring. We’ve run the gamut from on-trend, office-appropriate outfits to super-savvy cocktail dressing and beachwear.

This nautical number is a perfect example of what’s on deck for spring—a combo of bright colors and big graphic prints and patterns, all elevated by a pair of platform sandals (you can never go wrong with Dior).

As days get warmer (lucky you if they already are), swap out that statement-making kate spade mini trench for a lightweight and colorful blazer or cardigan.
