How Two Do: Sweater Dressing

On Melissa:
Sweater- H&M
Skirt- Parker
Leather leggings-Wilfred
Booties- Simply Vera

 On Aubrey:
Coat- J Crew
Dress- Jessica Simpson
Booties- Nine West

Let's talk Fall runway. Is it safe to say sweaters are dominating this season? We think so! We decided to try two totally different ways to rock the knit trend. First, the slouchy, cozy sweater and second the intarsia knit dress. Melissa chose to pair hers with leather to give the look a bit more edge while Aubrey kept it clean, letting the pattern speak its graphic story.

What are your favorite trends from the shows right now? Wishing you all a lovely Friday!

Coffee Break: Cafe Grumpy

 On Aubrey:
Vest- Urban Outfitters
Dress- H&M

On Melissa:
Sweater- H&M
Pants- Parker

It is safe to say New York has a coffee addiction. We can't do without it; it may be the best relationship any of us has. The Two are happily a part of this coffee culture. One of our favorite pastimes is finding new coffee places and recently we found a cute one, as the title suggests, called Cafe Grumpy. The cafe has a few locations, we chose to check out the one in Chelsea. Each of us tried a latte and black current, huckleberry bread (hopefully we are remembering the name right! Either way it was an unusual combination.) Both were delicious and we were happy to declare the outing successful.

On our coffee adventure, both of us chose to style our black, winter staples pieces (Aubrey- her H&M black dress, Melissa- her H&M black sweater). We tend to believe no outfit is complete without lipstick or a standout piece! Melissa wore her printed Parker pants paired a minimal/ bold necklace and Aubrey adds a little sparkle with a sequin vest, a recent steal of a deal from Urban Outfitters.

We hope you are all finding a way to keep warm in this weather and wish you a wonderful week!

Snowy Style

 On Aubrey:
Jacket- Rachel Rachel Roy
Dress- Parker
Boots- Nine West

On Melissa:
Beanie- H&M

How about this weather? Anyone who has been in or around NYC in the past few weeks knows how brutal it's been here! Last weekend, The Two adventured outside for a moment to take a few photos before heading to check out the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum.

When NYC gets cold, we resort to our natural instincts when it comes to fashion. What we mean is: layering! Beanies, leather, gloves, it's all in the details to stay warm and trendy in this season.

Wishing all of you a warm and wonderful week!

Well, hello there! It has been a crazy few months, so much happening! Here is a little update on the Tailored Two...
Aubrey has been working as an assistant designer for Jones NY collection. As her first job out of school, she couldn't be happier. Here's to loving what you do!
Melissa has been consumed by her senior year at FIT and an internship at Theory.  She is loving Theory and stressing hard at school, but it will all be worth it in the end.

In honor of the new year, our resolution is to give our blog the TLC it deserves! More to come soon.

Have an amazing week!

Jazz Age Festival

Dress- French Connection

A few weekends back the Two went to Governer's Island for a 20s Jazz Age Festival. We were celebrating our lovely friend's (in the middle above) birthday.  Our day consisted of picnicking, dancing, drinking, all while listening to a live 20's jazz orchestra.  Everyone attending the festival were dressed up in 20's garb, as if we were transported back into the age of flappers and prohibition. It was an incredible experience and we can not wait for next year's festival!  

We hope all of you have a wonderful weekend!

How Two: Style Summer Prints

On Melissa:
Top- H&M
Shorts- Parker
Heels- Nine West

 On Aubrey:
Blazer- Parker
Tee- Self made
Shorts- H&M
Heels- Vince Camuto

Yes. We are wearing matching prints. After being roommates for three years, blogging together, shopping together, and influencing one another's styles, we have finally unintentionally reached twinsies status! We both met up wearing the matching print; at first we thought "how embarrassing?" then decided why not roll with it and talk about how we styled a print that we both clearly love.

It's always easier and fun to play with prints in the summer. Of course there is the obvious choice, printed dresses but we opted for printed details. Strong, bold, graphic looks have been an important trend lately, so we opted for styling with black and white to give our outfits the most impact.

Have a wonderful day dolls!
