A Family Affair

At Front Door Fashion we have an affinity for brands that create beautiful accessories to complete the outfits we style for our customers.  Three Bishops, a recent jewelry brand discovery for FDF, is owned by three sisters living in Texas and we are delighted to introduce you to them. Melody Bishop, Jennifer Bishop Blumenstock, and Natalie Bishop Martin founded their business in 2007 under their maiden name.  For the buying team at Front Door Fashion, finding Three Bishops was a love-at-first-sight kind of thing. As we researched and learned more, we became even bigger fans. Three Bishops weaves together beauty and meaning in every piece to showcase the individual characteristics of the stone. The three Bishop sisters believe, and we agree, that handcrafted jewelry made with genuine gemstones and metals is a true luxury. Read more below about some of the specific pieces we selected to offer our FDF clients.

As fall quickly approaches the FDF Stylists find inspiration in the fall runways. From fall florals to menswear inspired looks and patchwork embroidery, there are plenty of fall trends to incorporate into your wardrobe. To help you stay au courant we've selected three of our favorite trends of the moment for you to try this month! Ask your FDF Stylist to suggest how these trends can work best for you and read on for our looks of the moment.

Denim is all-American and always in style. With fall on the horizon we naturally turn to thoughts of jeans. Before you throw on those old faithfuls, our FDF Stylists (who are always here to give you the little push you need) have selected a few pairs of denim that are a cut above your average blue jeans! Scroll down to see some of our favorite denim for fall and how to make it the star style of your early fall wardrobe.

With less than a month until Fall equinox we are already thinking about bundling up into layers of gorgeous cashmere that are already arriving at Front Door Fashion!  Fall, for us fashion folk, is the most wonderful time of the year! It's the time for experimenting with layers and breaking out your favorite leather jacket. While we fashionistas are excited to dive into fall we reluctantly recognize that temperatures are still well into the 80s and 90s until October in some parts of the country (especially here in Texas). So, how do you dress for that awkward transitional season when shorts and sundresses no longer cut it but autumn temperatures haven't quite arrived? Don’t get ahead of yourself and pack away your summer-weight items just yet because you can still use them mixed in with layers. The key to dressing for transitional weather is to pair the summer pieces you already have with a few freshly classic fall items like a lightweight blouse, an oversized sweater, a statement jacket and a classic button up. To help you stay ahead of the curve, we've selected several early fall outfits along with styling tips so you'll be ready when temperatures drop. After all, it's better to be prepared with a few fall items ready in your closet than to be scrambling at the last minute! The time to starting buying key fall items is now!

Athleisure by definition is casual, comfortable clothing designed to be suitable both for exercise and everyday wear. When a trend is as cute as it is comfy, we just want to wear it all the time. That's why for the first time in Front Door Fashion history we've curated an Athleisure blog. Athleisure our way is a combination of comfy leggings, jersey skirts, and casual jackets that can easily transition into your everyday wardrobe and are perfect for quick errand runs. Scroll on to see what we've pulled this week for FDF's take on the Athleisure trend!

There's nothing quite like a summer spent by the water. And packing can be stressful! It's the last thing you need to think about before summer vacation! To keep your head above water when it comes to packing, we've gathered a few looks to put your mind at ease so you can float on to your destination. We think the easiest, breeziest  travel essential for summer by the sea is a light weight dress or two (or three!). Dresses are super easy to pack and take up very little space in your suitcase. They provide you with instant style and minimal effort. Below are our favorite summer dresses to make you feel sophisticated and carefree while on your next vacation.

When temperatures rise above 90 degrees, it can be easy to day dream about living in your summer shorts and kicking back by the pool all day. But for most of us, duty calls and we must press on to the office. The key is looking polished and professional with a nod to ease of summer. We've gathered several outfits and tips from our FDF Stylists to help guide you through the work week heat.

Have you heard the news? We've just completed a serious redo of our style lounges to give our Dallas style appointment customers a more elevated styling experience! You may be asking yourself the following question: "What is a style appointment and why haven't I had one?"  In a nutshell, it is an enjoyable and efficient way to spend an hour. A Stylist will spend usually one hour preparing for your arrival by studying your style profile (and notes of past purchases if you've shopped before) and pulling items she feels will suit your likes, highlight your best features, and meet the needs of your lifestyle.

The 4th of July is around the corner and the temperatures are rising! To inspire your summer wardrobe and keep you looking cool despite the heat, we've gathered a few images from fashion bloggers via Pinterest and recreated their magic using Front Door Fashion brands. The key to all of these looks is light layers. Layers can work in the summer if they are airy and breathable. We recommend cotton, linen or anything sheer. Scroll on to see our Pinterest blogger outfits come to life!

We love to celebrate in style and the 4th of July is no exception! Celebrate this Independence Day by incorporating some red, white, and blue into your outfit. Whether you are at a parade, watching fireworks with family, or barbecuing with friends let your style shine with any of these all-American looks. Scroll on for outfit inspiration, or to request a red, white, and blue box from your Front Door Fashion Personal Stylist.

It's somewhat surprising that even in 2018, men still dominate top positions of most major brands in the fashion industry.  At Front Door Fashion, a company owned and founded by women, we always enjoy introducing fabulous new brands to our customers, but it's especially exciting when we discover brands that are owned by women and led by women!  Today, we wanted to share a little bit about the beginning of our own company and introduce you to two Dallas apparel companies founded and owned by women who are manufacturing beautiful product in the United States.

It can be easy to get stuck in a style rut. Wearing the same tried and true brands is an easy fix when it's hot out and brain functionality is compromised.  And who has time to discover new brands anyways?  Not to fear, FDF is here for you! FDF Personal Wardrobe Stylists and the FDF Buying Team are always on the hunt for the next newest brands for our clients. For your edification and enjoyment we've created a comparison of FDF cult classic brands to some of our newest FDF brands to pique your interest as you glide into June.

Even the cutest swimsuits deserve an equally cute cover-up! Whether on vacation or by a pool, cover-ups are a summer wardrobe essential.  Keep it minimal in your suitcase this summer, and save yourself the chore of shlepping an overweight bag, by letting your beach cover-ups do double duty.  Imagine them for more than just the sand. And, we promise, this post isn't about how to use your scarf as a sarong (even though that's an option!). Here are 3 Front Door Fashion Stylist-approved ways to take your cover-ups from the street to the beach.
