We chose the name The Fashion Cookbook because we believe style is made up of many intricate ingredients - such as lifestyle, values, and career - and accented by unique flavors like a pinch of sass, a teaspoon of whimsy, and a dash of glamour.

There are so many looks that I gravitate towards during fall, but lately I’m trying to embrace the beauty in simple classics. Largely this has to do with the staying power of items. My entire outlook of shopping has changed. No longer do I go on a shopping spree at the mall and spend my money in one store, but instead I’ve learned which pieces I’m most drawn to and identified what will I get the most wear out of.

I am beyond excited to layer again now that the weather is getting colder. What are you excited to wear this fall?

We wish we could give all of you a macaron and a hug for all of your support throughout this journey. It means the world to us to have such amazing readers and we wish all of you could have been a part of our celebration – as we launch our brand new site and much anticipated business venture! It is with great joy that we could share the spotlight for our opening blog post on the new site with some of our dear friends. There is really no way we could have done this without the support of our friends and family. Not only have they been there to be our photographers, but they also have offered invaluable feedback on how we can make The Fashion Cookbook a unique fashion destination that represents all kinds of people and is a source of empowerment in an industry that can often leave people feeling defeated.

We really cannot began to describe all that we are grateful for. We strongly believe God has bigger plans for us and find that we are beyond blessed. The Fashion Cookbook began as a personal fashion blog, but there has always been so much potential to be tapped into. This is an extremely exciting time in our lives and we are so happy to be able to share this moment in time with you all. If this is your first time visiting us welcome, and if not and you have seen us grow please know how much we truly appreciate you. Just wait you have seen nothing yet!

 *Special thanks to our friends for joining us: Olivia, Helen, Ericca, Michela, Marie, Rebecca, Emily, Tina, Thao, Amanda, and Maddie

We’d also like to give a special thanks to our amazing advisers Shari Worthington and Amy Whitney for all of their support this past summer in getting this massive project together. We couldn’t have done it without your wisdom and encouragement!

To show our gratitude to all of you – our readers – we will be hosting a fabulous giveaway. Be sure to check back with us here this week for more details on how to enter! As always make sure to follow us on our social media channels for quick tips, daily inspiration, and updates.

It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s a Blog Tour!

August 7, 2014

Hello Beauties,
We have an extra special post to share with all of you! Buckle up because we’re taking you on a blog tour. On our first stop we met the beautiful Tasha – she’s a writer, mother, career woman, Persian-English fashionista, and founder of Polished Practical. We wish all of you could hear her adorable accent through her blog posts. Check her out for fashion inspiration on the go!

Now it’s our turn in the hot seat.

Here’s what you need to know about us:

Hannah: Obsessed with all things pink.
Loves to cook and spend time with family.
Thrifting queen.

PatriciaObsessed with all things Kate Spade.
Has major travel anxiety coupled with a severe case of wanderlust.

1. What are we working on? 
Funny you should ask, because we have some pretty exciting stuff in the works! We will be completely re launching and expanding The Fashion Cookbook in a few weeks. Stay tuned!

2. How does our work differ from others of its genre? 
Our blog is our very own fashion and beauty cookbook that we get to share with you! We pride ourselves on sharing more than just what we’re wearing but also tips, tricks, commentary, and a little bit of us in every post. We also devote as much of our time to writing as we do to styling and photography.

3. Why do we write/create what we do? 
We strive to share recipes that inspire you to experience fashion in a way that’s personal to you by sharing not only our outfits but our stories as well. We’re passionate about empowering others through fashion and blogging is a great medium to do so.

4. How does our writing/creative process work? 
The great thing about blogging with your best friend is that we often come up with new content ideas randomly during conversation! Sometimes we draw inspiration from other content creators but often a particular theme comes up or one of us has a new item in their closet that they are excited to share. From there, we will shoot our outfit photos and let the photos guide the writing of the post. All in all our creative process is pretty laissez faire!

Be sure to check out the next stop of the blog tour on August 11th and pay Ms. Laura Adney a visit at Have Need Want. Here is what she had to say about her blog:
Have Need Want is a fashion and lifestyle blog which chronicles my daily style, fashion tips and tricks, healthy recipes, and really anything I feel like sharing ;) I love to mix prints and pair the unexpected together so hopefully my readers get some great outfit inspiration.

We’d love to hear a fun fact about you in the comments below!

Workaholic Wardrobe

I’ve been up all night, tryna get that rich. I’ve been work, work, work, work, working on my sh*tttttttt. 
I have to say this summer Iggy Azalea has been a must every time I’m in the car or running at the track. As cliche as it is to say I connect with her lyrics about perseverance and I’m drawn to her boldness as a strong female in her industry. I especially relate to the song “Work.” Did you know that adults spend 1/3 of their life working?! It makes you think am I happy for a how I’ve spent a third of my life? It’s natural to get into a routine and for most in some sort of a rut doing the same thing everyday and having to deal with co-workers and long hours doing something you hate. If I’ve learned anything this summer its that its better to work towards a goal then to work for money. Another thing, in fact maybe the most important thing I’ve learned is that good things come to you if you give it your all.

Okay, enough of my gooey insight for tonight. I just wanted to share one of my more recent work outfits that I found was perfect for a beautiful summer day at the office. Although I love my bright neons and pops of color (especially for lipstick), sometimes simple summer whites and other neutrals are the way to go. 

style ingredients
top: Forever 21
skirt: Ralph Lauren
heels: Rampage
purse: Nine West
necklace: vintage cameo

Hope you all have had a good week so far!
