Horoscope Style: Pisces

Pisces women are usually shy and easygoing. They are considered to be the kindest and most generous of all the zodiac signs, and they are often adventurous and open minded.

We think that laid-back Pisces would love these simple yet fashion-forward looks!

1. L.K. Bennett tan bag

This beautiful leather bag is such a simple but classic bag that you'll have forever.

2. Loeffler Randall gold wedges

These gold wedges are so pretty, and you can wear them to work or out on a date!

3. Joie loafers

These Joie loafers are so comfortable and we are obsessed with the coral stitching.

4. David Aubrey necklace

This necklace is so beautiful and simple, and would look great with any outfit!

Happy birthday to all our Pisces ladies out there!

Oscar Syle

The Oscars are our favorite awards show, and we loved so many of the gowns that came down the runway. We saw so many classic looks last night, and we think everyone looked stunning!

One of the big trends of the night was a taupe/cream color. We love this classic hue, and we think that these ladies rocked it!

We love this hue for spring!

We love these All Black polka dot wedges!

This Hyla DeWitt cuff is so beautiful, and we think it's a perfect way to add some Hollywood glamour to your wardrobe!

These Ivanka Trump flats are such a great neutral!

We also saw a lot of gold on the red carpet last night. These stars looked fabulous, and we think the gold dresses were very appropriate for the Academy Awards! 

Gold is such a fun neutral, and we think it is a definite must for your wardrobe!

So many stars were wearing statement rings last night, and this Kenneth Jay Lane ring is the perfect accessory to any outfit!

This woven Elaine Turner clutch is such a unique and fun bag!

These Ivanka Trump heels are quintessential Hollywood glam, and we think they're so beautiful!

The color of the night was definitely black, but these stars didn't just go for the simple black look. So many dresses had beading details that made them sparkle on the red carpet. We love the glitter trend happening, and we hope it sticks around for a while!

We love the idea of taking such a classic color and adding glitter for an updated look. Black is a classic and it's good to update it sometimes!

These glitter flats by London Sole are so fun and they go with everything!

We love these Matt Bernson glitter booties!

These Ivanka Trump heels are so classy and the dark pewter color is so unique!

Even though we are sad that awards season is over, we loved last night's show and we're already getting excited for awards season 2014!

Bloggers by Bishop: Purple Pumps

Happy Friday, everyone!

Today we are seeing purple everywhere! Two of the bloggers we follow posted looks where they are wearing purple pumps like these Ivanka Trump heels that we have in the store. We love this color, and we're happy to see some spring colors after such a freezing winter.

The first blogger that we saw wearing purple heels today was Britt from the San Francisco based blog Britt + Whit. These two ladies have such great style, and we love seeing the looks they put together on their blog.

This colorful look is so cute, and we think Britt's purple pumps are the perfect addition to the look!

The second blogger we saw wearing purple pumps is District Sparkle. She is a DC girl, so obviously we are biased, but we think she is so fabulous! This outfit is so pretty and the purple pumps (which are Ivanka Trump too) add such a nice pop of color to this otherwise monochromatic look.

Do you think you'll add some purple pumps to your spring shoe collection? We definitely think it's a must!

Have a good weekend!

Bloggers by Bishop: Classy Girls Wear Pearls

This week (and every week) we are loving Sarah Vickers from Classy Girls Wear Pearls. She has such great taste, and her photos have a very vintage look which enhances her classy style.

She posted a look where she is wearing a Kiel James Patrick bracelet. We are obsessed with KJP's nautical themed rope bracelets, especially with spring right around the corner! Sarah paired her bracelet with this wintery look and we think it is so fabulous!

Check out these adorable KJP rope bracelets at Bishop!

Horoscope Style: Aquarius

Your zodiac sign can say a lot about who you are and can even determine your style! We are obsessed with reading our horoscopes, and all of us usually find them to be pretty close to the truth. So, we thought it would be fun to blog about different things we have in the store that match the personalities of the 12 zodiac signs!

Right now we are in Aquarius, which lasts from January 20th through February 19th. Aquarius is a water sign and people born during this time are considered to be philanthropic, progressive and very amiable. Aquarians are visionaries and often encourage others to follow their lead.

In other words, Aquarians are trend-setters. Creative, unique and daring, Aquarians are the ones who take risks and others gladly follow.

We think these bold looks would catch an Aquarian's eye and we're confident that everyone (even those who are less daring) could rock these fabulous items!

1. Mark and James by Badgley Mischka blue heel

This color blocked suede heels are so beautifully designed, and look great with dresses or pants!

2. Ivanka Trump orange and snakeskin wedge

These wedges are not only super comfortable but they are such a statement piece and will definitely turn heads!

3. Milly tote in green (also in blue!)

This bag is so unique with it's bright color and zipper detail.

4. Kenneth Jay Lane bee ring

This ring is such a fun accessory for spring, and nobody else will have anything like it!

Bloggers by Bishop: What I Wore

Today one of our favorite bloggers, What I Wore, posted an outfit with this fun cobalt blue bag by Milly! We love how she paired this bright satchel with more muted colors. It looks super cute, especially on such a grey snowy day like today!

What I Wore has been posting adorable outfits for almost three years now, and we love her look! She has a book out and we are so excited to see what she does next!

Here's the link to this adorable Milly bag at Bishop!

Grammy Style

The Grammys are always a great event for fashion, and last night was no exception. Usually the red carpet at the Grammys is filled with crazy outfits like Bijork's swan dress or any of Lady GaGa's past Grammy looks, but this year the stars of the music industry kept it classy (for the most part!)

The two big trends we noticed were red & green, which we loved! Red is always a classic bold color, and green is definitely having a moment this spring. Check out the red & green looks we have at Bishop and you can add a little bit of Grammy flare to your wardrobe!

These All Black flats are such a fun color, and we think this green is great for spring!

This Hyla DeWitt sparkle cuff is so bright and fun!

We love these mint green Joie ballet flats. 

This Milly bag is such a fun addition to any bag collection, and we love that it has a shoulder strap!

These Rowen suede wedges are so cute, and the pink bow is removable which allows you to wear the shoe so many different ways!

This new LK Bennett envelope clutch is such a beautiful red, and it has a shoulder strap that you can attach!

We absolutely love these LK Bennett heels! They're great for work or for a date night!

These London Sole flats are such a great color and are so comfy!

This CC Skye cuff is such a beautiful addition to any outfit.

We love awards season, and we can't wait for the Oscars in just a few weeks!

Scout Guide Party

Thursday night we were honored to host a party for The Scout Guide of Northern Virginia. We had a great group of local business owners attend and it was so fun to mingle with everyone. We all got a chance to share our experiences with Scout Guide, and we are so excited to be included in The Scout Guide of Northern Virginia, 2013. It should be out sometime in May, and we have copies of the 2012 Scout Guide in the store! 

    All the scout guides from cities all over the country!

     Yummy refreshments!

One of the photographers who will be working on the Scout Guide of Northern Virginia 2013 snapped some great photos and she was generous enough to let us use her photos on our blog! Check out her work on her website, A Muse Photography

Bloggers by Bishop: The Sartorialist

The Sartorialist isn't technically a blogger, but his website has such beautiful photos of street fashion that we thought it only fair to include him in our Bloggers by Bishop series!

Scott Schuman is a photographer and has been featured in a number of fashion magazines. The Sartorialist is a blog that he created in order to show what real people were wearing in cities all over the world. He travels everywhere from Paris to Milan, back to New York and even to Tokyo! Every once and a while he'll notice a trend and do a special post about it. Our new favorite trend is the two toned shoe, and apparently Scott agrees!

At Bishop we love the two toned shoe. We have a number currently in the store, and we're hoping this trend sticks around for a while!

This Schutz flat is so adorable and versatile! You can wear it with so many different colors and outfits. (They're on sale too!)

These adorable Loeffler Randall flats are so great for spring! 

We love these Ivanka Trump suede boots. The blue and black combo works so well with so many different looks!

These Lola Cruz platforms are so fun, and they look great with pants and dresses!
