What is it like growing up in the fashion industry? Ask Nicky Hilton. A lifetime of Fashion Week front rows, strutting the catwalk and red carpets and eventually designing her own collections made Hilton a connoisseur of clothing. Having never employed a stylist, Hilton climbed her way up the best-dressed lists all on her own, trusting her own sartorial moxie to get her there. Now Hilton passes her secrets along in the form of a new book called 365 Style, which details her special formula for developing a signature style.
Hilton visited our Bellevue Square store on November 14 to give fans the inside scoop on her new book and answer a few of our burning questions. Here she gives us a crash course in personal style, including her five must-have items of the moment.
Amy Squires and Jocey Canrinus (a.k.a the ladies behind the DIY and inspiration blog Wedding Chicks) are taking over The Thread and our Wedding Suite Blog for a day to share their quirky-glam style. What can we say? We can hardly ever refuse a peek inside a great closet.
Although we love the same look–jeans and cute tops—we tend to steer toward completely different looks. Amy loves a more classic tailored look – think Cameron Diaz. Her definite staples are J Brand, Joie, and Frye. It’s a given if you run into Amy, she’s most likely going to be in skinnies and boots.

Jocey drifts toward anything boho chic, adores anything Rachel Zoe, Parker or her favorite Free People. If you spot Jocey, she’ll most likely be in a flowy top, a great pair of Hudson boot cuts and fierce wedges (likely with a wooden sole!)
Top both of our looks off with gold hoop earrings, a chunky watch and an over-sized bag from Rebecca Minkoff or Marc Jacobs and we are all set. We also have to mention a few of our beauty staples: Amy loves her Laura Mercier eye-lash curler, and always has a great lip balm in her pocket. Jocey swears by Este Lauder ‘more than mascara’, a beauty secret passed down from her Mom.
