Trend Alert: The New Bow Tie

The hottest new accessory that started as menswear, has now transformed into the "it" accessory for women, the bow tie. No matter what the occasion might be, whether it be a black tie event or a shopping day with some girlfriends, this androgynous accessory will cause everyone to do a double-take. You can pair it with a blaze and some structured shorts for a stronger look. Or you can play up your girly side and rock a bow tie in a fun color or texture and wear it with a cute, high-waisted skirt and basic top. This hot item comes in an assortment of colors and patterns that gives you endless options of how you want to style it. So ladies, it's time to make a statement with your bow tie and give the men a run for their money;)

Kissue Girls Update: Kaygan

Hey guys!

As far as an update on my life, I just finished my first year at Texas Christian University, and I am also in the Delta Gamma sorority. I am a Fashion Merchandising major and have really enjoyed all of the fashion classes I've taken so far. I'm also in the process of starting TCU's very first fashion club, so I'm really looking forward to next year.

Now that it is summer time, I have been enjoying doing nothing haha. Unlike Kailey's busy schedule, I am not working this summer. I have been traveling a lot though recently. I went to New York City to help move Kailey up, which was amazing as always. My dad, mom and I actually just got back Sunday from Las Vegas for my dad's business. It was a blast! The shopping there was endless, and they even had a few stores that I had never been to...surprising, I know. The next trip I will be going on is to Kentucky at the first of July to visit my suit mates from this past year at TCU. They are transferring back to the University of Kentucky, so I am going to visit them before the school year starts. Finally, the whole family will be venturing off to Rio Del Mar, Mexico at the end of July for a little R&R. I am already excited to soak up the sun!

I hope that you all are having an amazing and relaxing summer, and I will keep you updated with anything that comes along!


P.s. I also have an Instagram if you want to follow me, @kaygantissue(:

Kissue Girls Update: Kailey

Hey y'all!

I know we don't really update you guys with what is going on in our lives, so I thought it would be fun to start giving everyone a little peek into what we are up to.

I have had quite the exciting past couple of weeks! I graduated from the University of Florida in May, and I officially moved to New York City three weeks ago to chase my fashion dreams. I am totally head-over-heels in love with the city. The energy and possibility that fill the streets is so inspiring to me. As a fashion obsessed girl fresh out of college and ready for new and exciting experiences, this is the perfect place for me right now. I currently have two jobs that take up mostly all of my time, but I love it. I work with Stephanie Doucette, the designer of the high-end and sustainable clothing line, Doucette*. I do the sales and marketing for the line, and I also do PR/marketing for an online fashion lifestlye boutique, Brooklyn Fusion. I'll put the links to their sites at the bottom of this post so y'all can go check them out;) I am crazy busy, but I love the people I get to work with and wouldn't want it any other way. Both Kaygan's and my dream is to have a successful career in the fashion industry, and we will do whatever it takes to make our dreams a reality.

NYC is a little different from our home state, Texas, so I have had to adjust a little to the Big Apple way of life. Let's just say I have an endless supply of band-aids in my purse in case of a blister emergency due to all the walking haha. However, I have caught on quite nicely if I do say so myself. I'm a veteran now...well maybe I just look like one because people keep coming up to me and asking for directions. Thank goodness I carry my trusty, highlighted subway map with me at all times;)

I am so excited for what the future and this amazing city holds for me. I will make sure to keep everyone updated with any exciting experiences I encounter, and of course all the fabulous fashion of NYC that I come across. Have a good week y'all!


Ps, I'm addicted to Instagram and update it constantly. So if you want to stay up-to-date with what I'm up to in the Empire State, you can follow me @kaileytissue:)

Me and my amazing friends/roomies!

Summer Trend: Detachable collars

One of summer's cutest and easiest trends is the detachable collar. This girly accessory adds a touch of innocence or edge depending on what style you choose. And talk about versatile! For example, let's say you choose to rock that gold, sequin number above. You can stealth it with an all-black look (black skinnies and a structured, black blaze) to get a more chic and edgy feel. Or you can choose to pair your collar with a cute, white summer dress for a sweet and delicate look. No matter what style, color or texture you choose, you'll be sure to catch some serious attention with these trendy collars!

McQueen Moment.


Alexander McQueen's brand is the epitome of edgy chic. The creations are always creative, unique and one-of-a-kind. The new McQueen jewelry line is a perfect addition to what this brand is all about. The line consists of bangles, rings, brooches, necklaces and wrap around bracelets, and it can be found in high-end department stores such as Neiman Marcus, Saks and Bloomingdales. The pieces of this collection have the brand's unique and iconic skull symbol that most people can recognize to be that of McQueen. If you are looking for a chic and modern piece of jewelry to add some edge to your look, then this line is definitely the right choice.
