Want to add a bit of glam to your look this fall? Recall an era of sultry screen sirens, shadowed by dark drama, with signature vintage pieces and retro inspired new classics! Bold, seductive lips, smoky come-hither eyes , and elegantly tailored fashion pieces contrast beautifully to create the look of a fierce femme fatale. It's easier than you might think and you don't have to be a total vamp to incorporate this trend into your everyday style. Here are several pieces that add some old school glamour with a look that's all 2013!

Every month we hold a Style Guide Challenge where we ask our amazing curator's to build collections around a common theme. This month's theme was all about Fall Color, which was inspired by Pantone's Fall 2013 color palette. The challenge was entitled A Riot of Color or Just a Pop, where the challenge was to either go crazy with color or go neutral with just a hint of color. The winner of our challenge becomes our Guest Stylist on Pinterest the following month where they get to show off their individual style and share with your their favorite finds throughout the internet.
Incite a Riot was a play off of our Just a Pop theme. Jenn took a monochromatic palette and infused it with a riot of color with just one colorful image.

Cinne went the opposite direction of Jenn with Pop Color Riot. Her bold and colorful palette uses some of the colors of the season like koi, turbulence and deep rich yellow.

As this was a challenge, we have to have a winner, someone who really captured the feeling of this seasons Fall Colors. Our winner is Kim of Semi Sweet Studios! Her collection entitled, Pantone 19-4215: Turbulence, focused on the deep gray tone for this season.
See you next month for our next style guide challenge!
In this time of year we celebrate the warm colors, the oranges, reds, and golds that remind us of the warmth of the sun as the days and nights are tinged with a nip of frost. Our talented team of curators at Elitesixteen has been hard at work creating beautiful autumnal themed shopping guides to help you bring a touch of the season into your wardrobe and home.

Each month, we gather together to host what we call, a Style Guide Challenge. We come up with a relevant theme for the season and ask our stylists to create collections not only to showcase the amazing finds on Etsy, but also their incredible style as well.
We realize that Etsy is a crowded place, full of unbelievable finds, but sometimes it's just a bit hard to sort through all of them. That's where we come in! We create mini shopping guides to help you shop more easily. This month we are helping you shop the latest fall color trends with our Pantone Fall Color Challenge, A Riot of Color or Just a Pop.

Do you ever create dream spaces in your head? Places that you would love to live in or that second home you would love to escape to when the weather becomes unbearable at home. I do this on a daily basis. All it takes is for me to see something in a magazine or while I am browsing pinterest and I start thinking about how I could build a room or even a house around it.
A cabin in the woods sounds like a perfect weekend retreat. A place to get away from the city and enjoy nature. It must be cozy and not too big. Since you are there to enjoy the outdoors I would decorate it with natural objects or rustic meets chic. My cabin would be a mix of reclaimed woods, pendleton fabrics, and a nod to our woodland friends. Are you ready to join me at the cabin?
