MONDAY-FRIDAY: Back-To-School Looks

If you’re anything like us, then you seriously can’t believe how quickly this summer flew by! All of a sudden, it’s the end of August and time to get back into the swing of things. With that, comes lots of planning and STRESS! As you know, one of the most important things about starting school is the outfits (aside from learning, of course…). So, we decided to help you out by planning out the perfect week-long wardrobe! Not to mention, we even included the perfect iPhone case to go with each look, so your most prized possession can be just as stylish as you are!

YLS, YSL

MONDAY

To start off the week, we suggest going for a look that’s both professional and chic. While you can still maintain a somewhat casual appearance, it’s also important to make a good first impression. These culottes pants create the perfect appearance, especially when paired with platform sandals and a basic top. We also paired this look with our YLS case, which was inspired by the designer brand Yves St. Laurent. With this look, you’re sure to turn heads in the best way!

TUESDAY

Next, we decided to brighten things up with a more laid-back look. Of course, we chose a bell-sleeve top  to create the illusion that you have your life together. The distressed red and white stripes are bold enough to be noticed, yet still toned down. We coupled this top with a patchwork denim skirt and textured mules to complete this very trendy outfit. We also thought this look would go well with our Ophelia iPhone case, because it’s simple, yet unique.

WEDNESDAY

For Hump Day, we decided to brighten up your look entirely! Nothings gives off happier vibes than flowy dresses and bright colors. We especially loved the details on the hem of this dress, as well as the shape overall. It’s flattering on all body types, and comfortable, too! We paired this look with our Burlesque iPhone case to bring out the pink and stick to bright colors!

THURSDAY

By Thursday, we’re all ready for the week to be over, so we decided to choose a look that would represent your mood. This black denim overall jumper is super trendy and so easy to wear! Simply throw on your plain white tee and call it a day! We think this would even look good with Converse of Vans. Since this look is a bit more grungy, we wanted to pair it with one of our trendiest phone cases, the Eat In & Get Out case, by Brielle Biermann.

FRIDAY

TGIF! As a reward for making it through the week, it’s time to reward yourself by wearing your favorite pair of jeans! If you want to spice up the look, you could go for some statement jeans with embroidered designs, and finish off the look with a pair of mules. We paired a simple look like this with one of our most simplistic  cases, the Lashed case!

We hope you love these ideas for back-to-school looks!

Our Creative Director’s Advice To Female Entrepreneurs

Meet our Creative Director, Bryce McGillivray…

As a native Rhode Islander, Creative Director Bryce McGillivray has brought New York City fashion home and given it her own personal spin!

Bryce graduated from the University of Rhode Island in 2014 with a major in Textile Marketing and a minor in Journalism. Shortly after, she took on the big city to make her small-town dreams come true, but what she gained from this experience is more than she could have ever imagined!

Now, Bryce works as the Creative Director of Fifth & Ninth, where she collaborates with designers to bring ideas to life and leads the advertising and marketing efforts of the company.

With Bryce being such an inspiration, we decided to interview her and extract four main pieces of advice that would be helpful to young female entrepreneurs who are striving towards success.

#1
Don’t be afraid of new experiences

 First and foremost, we asked Bryce what she believes helped her to get to where she is today. She said that aside from the support of her family and a few important people, it was her experiences that shaped her journey, specifically the experience of living in New York City. Bryce says that it “was a time of growth for [her] as an adult and a professional in the workplace.” She says: “not only did I learn more about myself, but I am still so inspired from that time period in my life and incorporate it into this brand daily.” So, ladies, never shy away from change, even if it may scare you. Instead, run towards new experiences, because they may be the key to your success!

#2
Always believe in yourself

Next, we asked Bryce to reveal the biggest lesson that she’s learned so far, based on her unique experiences. While she said there are a lot of important lessons that she has learned along her journey, she identifies the most critical one to be that you have to believe in yourself 100% before you can expect anyone else to believe in yourself. Bottomline: confidence is key. And, in the wise words of Bryce: “Fake it ’til you make it, sister!

#3
Understand that nothing is impossible

We also asked Bryce what she considers to be her greatest accomplishment in her career so far. She responded by saying that she considers her biggest accomplishment to be working alongside some of her favorite celebrities. For those who don’t know, Fifth & Ninth has collaborated with various notable designers, bloggers, and public figures, including Alana Hadid, Vlada Haggerty, and many more! Bryce says that when she started working in the industry, she would “put people who [she] aspired to be on such a pedestal that felt impossible to reach.” She added, however, that “with every professional milestone, the pedestal became easier and easier to reach.” So, always remember that no dream is too big if you’re willing to work for it!

#4
Know yourself

Finally, we asked Bryce the golden question: What advice would you give to young women who want to succeed in this industry? Her response was simple: “Know yourself.” She says that this is the ground you stand on. Elaborating on that statement, Bryce added that “it’s so important to know your strengths, but it’s even more important to know your weaknesses.” In fact, she recommends that you take a few minutes out of each day to self-reflect. This can make all the difference in the world! Always remember that you have to be your own biggest fan, supporter, and advocate.

Joanna Vongphuomy “Fallspiration”

We’re falling into Autumn with Joanna Vongphuomy!

The story behind the phone case

“Keep it simple and classy, yet different and bold; that’s the motto I go by when it comes to fashion, and it was the motto I went by when designing this phone case. Free handing the design, I specifically drew a peony flower because it symbolizes honor, compassion, romance, and beauty. The vines surrounding the peony symbolize strength to move forward. Vines have the ability to grow in any environment and in order for them to survive they will go through any cracked space to reach the light. They never stop fighting. Choose to see the beauty and elegance in everything and everyone that surrounds you. Now, take a second look at this case and tell me what you see.”

-Joanna Vongphoumy

Pumpkin spice season has arrived, and we can’t wait to break out the sweaters and booties. We paired up with Joanna Vongphuong to give you some Fallspiration!

Cozy up with your oversized sweater, a pair of jeans, and your fave black booties. Match your Jvongphuomy case to add a personal flare to your look.

Pick up a pair of light washed distressed jeans and a fun, sheer crop top. Top if off with a leather jacket, and your Jvonphuomy phone case, of course.

This phone case is a necessity if you have a pair of knee high boots this fall! Complete the look with a fall colored skirt and a cozy scarf.

You can never go wrong pairing up a beanie with a flannel! Add some autumn flare to the look by adding a maroon long sleeve and the Jvongphuomy phone case.

When in doubt, layer it out! This phone case is the perfect last layer after a striped long sleeved, a scarf, and a jacket.

Here at Fifth & Ninth, we absolutely adore Joanna. Currently, she is a make up and henna artist based out of Providence, RI.
