We love Stacey Todd for three reasons: 1) Rag & Bone is a huge fan of the LA retailer and christened their new Robertson store with a fried food-filled party last fall, 2) the shop's owner has an insane closet filled with all the Céline and Saint Laurent a girl could ever need, and 3) both store locations carry an out-of-this-world selection of au courant designer items. This is why it was a no-brainer to tap Stacey for the second installation of our spring series.
Here, Stacey Feldman (née Todd) reveals how you can master three key trends this season with looks straight out of her Robertson store.
Military: "This trend has been in every showroom and on every runway. It's one of those things that comes and goes every few years. I personally have always loved military and have certain vintage military pants that I never give up and always wear. I love mixing it with classic pieces. It's also a great alternative to denim."
Grunge: "I prefer this trend in bits and pieces—not whole grunge look. Just like military, I like pairing it with more classic, feminine pieces, such as a long dress with a plaid top."
Basics: "You really can't go wrong with the classics, like a black blazer, silk camisole and worn-in jeans. As mentioned, they go great with both military and grunge. Basics can add a touch of sophistication to any look!"
