As a former vogue blogger, busy enterprise proprietor and mother, Brittany has mastered basic, timeless appears to be like with a twist so we needed to have her on to share.

With that, let’s get to Brittany’s fashion ideas.


Hello, I’m Brittany. I stay in Dallas, TX and am the co-founder of House of Preservation, a skincare, magnificence and wellness model with medical spa places in Austin and Dallas.

I met Lauryn within the early days of Instagram on the first-ever Reward Type running a blog convention 10 years in the past (we are able to cease counting now). She was lovely in and out and simply fucking cool. I used to be in my early 20’s, broke broke, and dealing a 9-5 company job whereas running a blog on the facet about easy methods to costume and look stylish on a dime.

Quick ahead a couple of years later: I had a “quarter life disaster” and knew it was time to exit the fluorescent lights of company world. I reached out to my childhood finest pal who was in the identical state of affairs and satisfied her to take a leap of religion with me and pursue our shared love of skincare and anti-aging. We didn’t know precisely the place to begin, however took step one by enrolling in esthetician college and every part advanced from there sooner or later at a time.

Wanting again, the instruments I gained throughout the early days of vogue running a blog have been invaluable for serving to me pivot into what I’m doing at the moment. I discovered the significance of beginning a model earlier than a enterprise and giving worth with a purpose to earn belief and loyalty. My enterprise accomplice and I spent 3 years candidly sharing our journey and educating previous to opening doorways, which was instrumental in gaining a loyal following. If it weren’t for our time in class and dealing as suppliers within the business (I’m speaking lasering assholes on Groupon) we’d not have earned the belief we wanted to get purchasers within the door on day one and recruit the crew of consultants we now have.

My love for fashion and aesthetics has at all times formed the lens I view the world by way of, which has translated into the design and ambiance of our enterprise. HOP was born out of the will to have a spot we’d need to go to. No river rocks crashing in opposition to a wave throughout our facials or US Weeklys within the foyer. We wished to move you someplace horny and free. Vogue, magnificence, skincare, luxurious, it’s all the identical world to me.

Now that we’ve been open a bit over 4 years and employed a beast administration crew (*key*), I’ve been in a position to step away a bit and return to my roots and love of what began all this 10 years ago- vogue. Whether or not I had cash or didn’t, vogue has at all times fueled me. Fortunately with a much bigger price range lately and a child daddy’s checking account to take dangers with- I’ve been in a position to actually let my artistic juices stream and have enjoyable with it.

For me, it’s about pairing basic staples which can be timeless with a bit little bit of edge or intercourse attraction. Including these parts can elevate your complete look. So the system is: TIMELESS + SEXY + EDGY. Assume to your self WHAT MAKES THIS INTERESTING TO LOOK AT (shout out to Kim Kardashian for the road).

Examples of basic outfit with a twist:

♡ a ribbed tee or tank layered underneath a corset prime

You’ve seen all of the manufacturers do it however it’s extra unique whenever you pair it collectively your self. You additionally know you’re going to be the one one in it if it’s unique too. This tee or tank would look so stylish underneath this

♡ outsized jacket/males’s jacket

Don’t be afraid to buy the boys’s part. When you’re buying ladies’s I normally go up 2 sizes. If it’s males’s, I’ll do a measurement XS or S. For me, I would like it to look intentional-chic-vintage fairly than a ‘rolled away from bed & placed on the primary jacket you see’ really feel. Completely my choice however you will discover what works for you. Loving this oversized leather jacket & this blazer that Lauryn has. 

♡ elevate athleisure with a jacket + stylish flats

One in every of my specialties is working errands in my exercise set however making it acceptable to hit the streets by pairing it with an elevated jacket or leather blazer. The bounds I’ll push an athleisure set in…let’s simply say the road has been crossed earlier than. The simplest strategy to do it’s a cool flat-sandal, mule or slide.

♡ cropped white button down

Sporting a cropped white button down underneath a dress continues to be flattering the mid part however not including additional baggage. One thing cropped is essential.  

♡ a press release piece with denims and a white tee

Make it a rule of thumb that you just solely have one assertion piece and every part else is a primary. The instance under is an over the top coat with a sample you DO NOT need to compete with. I paired it with a easy however ever basic dark denim and a white tee.

Hope you all discovered some fashion information with this publish. We simply opened doorways to our second location in Austin, Texas and are at the moment scouting location #3 for @houseofpreservation. Observe me there or discover me @brittrix
