Fall Fashion…All Wrapped Up!

28 Jul

Emma

My name is Emma Holsombeck and I love clothing and accessories. When I am not working THREE jobs to fund my retail addiction, I enjoy being involved within my sorority Alpha Gam, making jewelry with my pal Mal and shopping (duh).

I attend the University of Alabama and am currently working towards a major in fashion retail with a minor in business. I aspire to one day become a buyer or stylist for a large retail company. I have had the pleasure of working for Wrapsody for several years. Through Wrapsody, I have made many memories and friends, but most importantly I have learned the art of teamwork, customer service, and hard work. “Growing up here” (as I say) I have ultimately discovered that deciding what you want to do for the rest of your life is hard, but that it’s absolutely OK to choose something that you’re passionate about! I am very blessed to have had the Wrapsody family to help me get started in the right direction.

Coming back to the Wrap this summer I was given the opportunity to travel to the Atlanta Market to help with the buying of this fall’s clothing and accessories. Before going, I was instructed to focus on “trend spotting” this season’s upcoming must-haves. This may sound easy to some and it did to me at first, but as I dug deeper, it occurred to me that this was not an easy task. Not only did I need to identify the trends in our local area but I also needed to identify ones that the Wrapsody customer will love. Focusing on a few, with you in mind, we were able to successfully fill the stores with sensible fall items you will adore! “But I don’t think I can pull that off” you say. OH YES YOU CAN. I have pulled together several easy and stylish looks for all different ages.

To pair with my favorite looks, I featured one of my favorite brands that we carry here at the Wrap- Hobo. “Quality and cool never go out of style” is the motto that Hobo Brand makes their ever so purposeful pieces by. From totes, wallets, cross body bags, clutches, and wristlets the brand has transformed the styles with trendy eye popping colors such as Copper, Autumn Python, Merlot, and Hunter. Our customers especially love the Lauren wallet and appreciate the quality and style that Hobo is known for.

Other brands that I love accessorizing with and have featured here are unique and locally made jewelry by Lucy’s Inspired and Stella Grace.

I hope you enjoy this glimpse of some of the awesome fall clothing and accessories that we have in store for you! Come in and play dress up with us- we’re happy to help you find the perfect outfit to add to your fall wardrobe!

BACK TO SCHOOL

Swing tees are IN. This t-shirt not only has a flattering cut but it is super soft. Wearing it with a bralette adds a touch of femininity. I think this look is perfect for school. I styled it with a funky Lucy inspired necklace and a teal Vera Bradley Northbrook Cross body to add a pop of color for those dull fall days.

Plaid is here AGAIN.

Many moan and groan over the pattern but personally it’s my FAVE. This plaid peasant dress is perfect for any special occasion. This outfit is effortless; just add leggings and boots! Worn with a Giving Key necklace and a merlot Hobo Darcy crossbody, Caroline is ready for a dinner with friends or a school function.

OFF TO COLLEGE

Being at Alabama for the past year I had the pleasure of experiencing my first college football game as a student. I quickly learned that finding the perfect game day outfit is crucial. Comfort and style is what it’s all about. I dressed Karlie in a wine colored peasant top along with a cream fringe vest. Matching it with (another) funky Lucy Inspired necklace and a copper Hobo Goldie cross body, she is ready for football season!!

At my age social events are everywhere. From dinner with the girls to a date night on the town, I am always trying to find what to wear next. This beige asymmetrical slouchy long sleeved top can easily be dressed up or down. I paired it with a crotchet cardigan and another (can you tell I love this jewelry?) Lucy Inspired necklace. Along with a charcoal bralette and Autumn Python printed Patti Hobo, this outfit is super sassy and COMFY!

SUPER MOM

In my eyes every mom is a super mom but if you’ve ever met Aimee George, she really does it all. With four boys (including her husband) this mom is always running around town. I chose a faded plaid (here’s that pattern again) pullover with a merlot Lauren Hobo. Worn with a triple pearl leather necklace and silver Stella grace earrings, this outfit is super easy when mom’s on the go.

After taking care of kids all day and working two jobs Aimee deserves a date night! For this occasion I chose an olive ombre’d tassel blouse and a brown Hobo shoulder bag. A simple Stella Grace gold necklace adds some bling for an evening without the kids.

    I had the pleasure of meeting Emma last Wed. She helped my granddaughter with a Vera backpack. Beautiful young lady and so helpful! I’m never disappointed with the ladies at Wrapsody.
