I have saved the best for last.  It took a while to narrow it down to a few oldies because there are so many great ones, but here it is, short and sweet.

This is the greatest playlist if you are feeling nostalgic.  You can’t deny that you probably remember every word (because I know I still do).

Here are my top picks for Spring!

Since Duck Duck Boot is in the big leagues now, its time for it to get its own ad.  I am testing the waters and there are a few different options I have come up with.  In the time it takes for me to decide on which one, I will upload one at a time.  This is one of my favorites and is actually part of a photoshoot from when DDB was my personal style blog.  I never actually put it up on the blog, so I figured I might as well use it.  Put it on a crisp and clean background, and you have a perfectly minimalist ad for the perfectly minimalist DDB!

IT BRIT: A GUIDE TO DRESSING EUROPEAN
by Annaliza
If you followed this blog prior to its switch to a magazine, you would be well aware of the love I had for European clothing companies, chinos, and brogues.  British style is very classic.  To dress British, you must first own the staples of any true-blooded Brit does.  That would be a quality button-up shirt, chinos (or a nice ankle pant), and a pair of leather brogues.
You may need to invest in skinnier pants.  The Brits are known for their tight jeans.  When cuffed at the ankle, they are delightfully cheeky.
Blazers will become your best friend.  They will come to replace your various jackets and sweaters.  They add a polished finish to any outfit by adding a scholarly touch.
Learn to cuff not just your jeans, but your shirts too.  Brits cuff everything.  Cuff your button-up shirts just below the elbow, or if you want a warmer look, just above the elbow.  Roll the sleeves of your t-shirts up a few times to give it a fresher look.
These are just a few tips to dressing like a true Brit.  If I continued into all the details and various things British, I would have written a novel.  Which is a good idea.  Maybe I should write one. 
Want to know more about dressing European?  Or dressing in general?  Ask me for style advice on the STYLE ADVICE tab at the top right hand side of the page.  I would love to answer any of your style questions!
