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

With that, let’s get to Brittany’s type suggestions.


Hello, I’m Brittany. I stay in Dallas, TX and am the co-founder of Home 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 Fashion running a blog convention 10 years in the past (we will cease counting now). She was lovely inside and outside 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 the right way to costume and look stylish on a dime.

Quick ahead a number 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 greatest buddy who was in the identical scenario 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 developed from there sooner or later at a time.

Trying again, the instruments I gained throughout the early days of style running a blog had been invaluable for serving to me pivot into what I’m doing as we speak. I realized the significance of beginning a model earlier than a enterprise and giving worth with a purpose to earn belief and loyalty. My enterprise associate 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 trade (I’m speaking lasering assholes on Groupon) we might not have earned the belief we would have liked to get purchasers within the door on day one and recruit the workforce of consultants we now have.

My love for type and aesthetics has all the time formed the lens I view the world by means 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 needed to move you someplace horny and free. Style, magnificence, skincare, luxurious, it’s all the identical world to me.

Now that we’ve been open slightly over 4 years and employed a beast administration workforce (*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- style. Whether or not I had cash or didn’t, style has all the time fueled me. Fortunately with a much bigger finances as of late and a child daddy’s checking account to take dangers with- I’ve been in a position to actually let my inventive juices stream and have enjoyable with it.

For me, it’s about pairing traditional staples which are timeless with slightly little bit of edge or intercourse enchantment. Including these components can elevate the 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 traditional outfit with a twist:

♡ a ribbed tee or tank layered underneath a corset high

You’ve seen all of the manufacturers do it nevertheless it’s extra authentic once you pair it collectively your self. You additionally know you’re going to be the one one in it if it’s authentic 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. Should you’re procuring ladies’s I normally go up 2 sizes. If it’s males’s, I’ll do a dimension XS or S. For me, I would like it to look intentional-chic-vintage relatively than a ‘rolled off the bed & placed on the primary jacket you see’ really feel. Completely my choice however you will discover what works for you. Loving this outsized leather-based jacket & this blazer that Lauryn has. 

♡ elevate athleisure with a jacket + stylish flats

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

♡ cropped white button down

Carrying a cropped white button down underneath a costume continues to be flattering the mid part however not including further baggage. One thing cropped is essential.  

♡ an announcement piece with denims and a white tee

Make it a rule of thumb that you simply solely have one assertion piece and every part else is a fundamental. The instance under is an excessive coat with a sample you DO NOT need to compete with. I paired it with a easy however ever traditional darkish denim and a white tee.

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