  • Story Leather Style Story: Gregg Asher and Tayler Carson Sandvick

    Posted on September 17, 2014 by Jonathan Ly

    For this week’s Style Stories I have the pleasure of speaking with Gregg Asher and Tayler Carson Sandvick of the Million Dollar Shopper! Never has there been a more dynamic duo of fashion and fun. Gregg’s style has been described as eccentric while Tayler is very couture, but when combined they create a wonderful complement just Gregg and Tayler. So let’s dive into this with Gregg and Tayler!

     

     

    Story Leather: Eccentric, does that word do justice to the amazing looks you pull off Gregg?

    GREGG - Yes – I totally take that as a term of endearment. I wear what I love and combine pieces in interesting ways because to me fashion should be fun. Any other word to describe me would just be too common.

    Story Leather: What about for you Tayler, does classic really capture everything about your style?

    TAYLER - I liked to say that my style is classic with a twist. I'm really not all one way or the other. It depends on my mood, ha! I'm not a huge fan of trends but I like to mix in a few new key pieces each season to keep my look current, fresh and effortlessly chic.

     

     

    Story Leather: Color is a very big part of any style, “how do each of you like to incorporate color into your everyday wear?

    TAYLER - Well I live in NYC so black is always my go-to, and effortlessly chic. However, I do love to add a pop of color in my wardrobe whether it's a neon green or pink Dior pump or a multi colored jeweled necklace or a wild color printed scarf. In the summer I wear a lot of color because it's fun and I love to mix bright prints and colors together.

    GREGG - Living part-time in Texas, these women embrace color so I’m surrounded by it.  Plus I love color so how could you not feel playful in pink and slightly naughty in red.

     

     

    Story Leather: Gregg, I was reading through your blog recently and I loved the post on Diana Vreeland; which of course prompted me to remember this quote, “Style – all those who have it share one thing: originality.” Are these timeless words that describe your style?

    GREGG - Yes – I’m very original in that I love to play with my mixing of colors/patterns/textures etc. in unexpected ways to make my looks unique and suited for me.  I also love another quote by Diana Vreeland that definitely describes me, “A little bad taste is like a nice splash of paprika. We all need a splash of bad taste – it’s hearty, it’s healthy, it’s physical.  I think we could use more of it. No taste is what I’m against.”

    Story Leather: For Tayler I thought of another famous quote by Yves Saint-Laurent, “Fashion fades, style is eternal.” How do you interpret these famous words?

    TAYLER - You hit the nail on the head for me! My mother always told me "money can buy you clothes but it can never buy you taste" so that's always been my mantra.       Style is something you are born with, you got it or you don't! The way the French interpret style, Parisian chic.  Women like Carine Roitfeld, Emmanuelle Alt, Garance Doré, Ines de la Fressange; they get it. And Americans like Sarah Jessica Parker, Olivia Palermo, Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Jackie O... Style is when you're wearing the clothes, they're not wearing you! It's about not doing what everyone else is doing...Effortlessness...I know I sound like a broken record!

    Story Leather: Not everyone is fortunate enough to know a personal shopper or someone versed with fashion; “Are there some quick tips you can give for men and women when they’re out shopping?”

    GREGG - Get to know your sales person at each store and gravitate towards those sales people who mimic your style best so they can better understand what you’re looking for and where to find it.

    TAYLER - I agree with Gregg, for once! But actually a good sales person can be your best friend when it comes to shopping. Also I say stay with the basics, mix in a fun current trend here and there. Invest in handbags and shoes. And focus on fit! It doesn't matter how expensive or what designer it is, if it doesn't fit it'll never look great and you'll never feel great in it. Find a tailor you trust!

     

     

    Story Leather: Lastly I have to ask about Million Dollar Shoppers, Gregg and Tayler, how was it working together and did you ever have conflicting opinions on what was best for the client?

    TAYLER - We do have a total blast together, it's a dream job! But we bicker, a lot!! I think that's one of the reasons we're so good together. We can be honest and disagree. But when it's all said and done we want to make our clients happy and give them an incredible wardrobe. That's what we do!

    GREGG - We’re like brother and sister so working together is a blast. We usually disagree a little bit on what is best for our clients, but I always manage to get a little sparkle or sequins in the outfits some way.

     

    Fun and fashionable are what Gregg and Tayler are all about and that's what your style should be about as well. Find something that suits you, but always be happy and have fun with what you're wearing. For all the latest updates on Gregg and Tayler, be sure to follow them on their social media pages!

  • Story Leather Showcase: Double Decker

    Posted on September 15, 2014 by Jonathan Ly

    It's been quite a bit of time since we actually showcased one of our own products, but as our customers get more creative we can't help but talk about these amazing designs they come up with.

    As most know our Double Decker is known best for anyone toting around two phones and need something to carry both devices. Just a couple weeks ago we spoke about some we're designing the double to hold a phone and a medical device, well it seems that some have taken the next step and designed the extra pouch to hold many other various items.

    The first of many items that they designed that second pouch for is to hold an everyday item like sunglasses and reading glasses. This never really occurred to us until one particular person mentioned that the two should go hand in hand. If your one that need reading glasses, generally speaking you would need then when reading texts or anything while in your phone, wouldn't it be simpler to have both those items in one area? We certainly never thought of that, so our amazing customers though of it for us.

     

     

    Another item that was very popular to add to our double decker is a external battery pack. Sure there are cases like the Mophie Juice Pack and the New Otterbox Resurgance, but what happens when even those can't cut it? Well we've had a few customers who already had a Mophie Juice Pack and they designed the Double Decker to hold an additional battery for those extra long work/travel days.

    Our last item, certainly not the least is notepad. Certainly the least common of the three mentioned, but more than other items to date. Most customers are business owners and they liking having a physical notebook or even a mini address book. When ask why they simply said, I'm a bit old fashioned. In a world filled to the brim with technology having a bit of old fashioned is a good thing. Doesn't it seem a bit more personal when someone takes the time to write down your name and number as opposed to storing in a phone? We think it does add a bit of a personable touch because that's why our cases are handcrafted, it adds a bit of a human touch to something that is otherwise to mechanical.

    We hope this post helps give a bit more insight on the unique applications of our cases and we hope to see all the uses that our cases can provide.

  • Story Leather: #AppleLive, what we know.

    Posted on September 12, 2014 by Jonathan Ly

    Hello everyone, as you know this week was huge for the world of mobile tech as Apple unveiled the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and Apple Watch. We did a live blog as the stream was going one, but this is to help condense all the information into a cohesive post! We'll start with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

    (Courtesy of CNET)

    The iPhone 6 wil now sport a 4.7 inch screen and it's overall dimensions are: 138.1 x 67 x 6.9 mm (5.44 x 2.64 x 0.27 in), which is a slight jump from the 5s, but they stress that the phone screen is not just bigger but better as well.  The screen will implement their new "Retina HD" and "Touch ID" system. Apple has also introduced "Apple Pay", their first step into the world of NFC (near field communication) and a new way of buying. They've integrated their "Touch ID" software to function with Apple pay so you can use that as opposed to a pin verification. It's a very neat step in the right direction, but it's something that has been out for quite sometime now. However, they've improved on Apple pay by partnering with major retailers to allow for online purchase using "Touch ID" and Apple Pay.

    iPhone 6 Plus will be identical in software, but their hardware is a bit different. The iPhone 6 will be running a 4.7 inch screen with 1334 x 750 pixel resolution at 326 ppi with a 1400:1 contrast ratio. Whereas the iPhone 6 Plus will have a 5.5 inch screen with 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution at 401 ppi with a 1300:1 contrast ratio.

    Both phones will be running an 8 megapixel iSight camera and a 1.2 megapixel facetime camera. It can capture cideo at 30 or 60 frames per second at 1080p with the rear facing camera and 720p with the facetime camera.

     

    Lastly we have the famous "one more thing..." slide that Steve Jobs eloquently used, except this time Tim Cook introduced the Apple Watch (still curious as to why they didn't use iWatch). In addition to the unveiling, they also did a live demo of the Apple Watch which is extremely impressive to say the least. The new Apple wearable tech comes in 3 variants: Watch, Watch Sport, and Watch Edition. To complement the 3 designs, they also have 6 unique custom bands that they've built for the Watch Series:

     

     

    It seems like Apple took a more luxury look to the Watch like that of the Moto 360. It's a nice change aside from the Samsung and LG models.

    There were plenty of other amazing innovations that Apple announce like: Apple Pay, New Fitness/Health Apps, and many more. to find all the updated information you can visit Apple's website. Don't forget that pre-orders for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus start today so grab yours! Also, use the promo code PREVIEW15 for 15% off your entire purchase.

  • Story Leather Style Stories: Akil McLeod

    Posted on September 10, 2014 by Jonathan Ly

    Meet Akil McLeod the Dapper Advisor, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. Akil is a man that emanates class. As evident in his photos, Akil accurately dons that dapper attire but with a modern twist. His passion is to help aspiring young professional’s to dress the part they were meant for. Love what you do and the rest will follow, that’s why in almost every photo Akil can be seen with a bright smile that perfectly accents his outfit. As Ali Levine said a few weeks ago, “Confidence is the best accessory” and Akil wears it perfectly.

    Story Leather: On your blog you had mentioned that you had made the conscious decision to dress for the role that you were aspiring for, “How did you know what to wear?”

    Akil: I learned what to wear by modeling my wardrobe after the respected veterans in my field.  In higher education professors, deans, and presidents tend to dress relatively conservative and business oriented.  Analyzing what key players in my professional industry wore provided me with a realistic vision of what my wardrobe should consist of. However, because I started my career at a young age I decided to construct my wardrobe based around classic menswear pieces, but with a modern fit. By doing so, I gained the respect from my peers and supervisors, all while gaining the respect and trust from my advisees.

     

    Story Leather: You've also mentioned that thrift stores we’re your best option, “With thrift stores being so random in their selection how did you go about finding what works?”

    Akil: Thrift stores are extremely random in their selection, especially the ones that I regularly visit. However, the keys to success for shopping at a thrift store lie in having the patience to sift through cluttered clothing racks, as well as having the knowledge to decipher quality brands and fabrics. Although most items found in thrift stores are vintage and outdated, menswear has remained relatively the same over the years. Therefore, visiting a tailor and making minor alterations can help eliminate the fear of wearing something that clearly looks like you found it in a thrift store.

    Story Leather: When did you make the decision to become the Dapper Advisor? Was it influenced during your time as a student or afterward?

    Akil: I decided to become the Dapper Advisor while I was a student in graduate school. During that time, I became very interested in style and dressing well for my career. So I started the platform as a way to monitor my style evolution. It eventually became a platform to share my style and menswear knowledge with others as well. As I was finding my own personal style, I found that many of my peers wanted to improve their style, but did not know where to begin.

     

    Story Leather: As the Dapper Adviser, what are a few simple rules that every young professional can follow when trying to dress the part?

    Akil: When I first started doing my research on style and menswear in particular, I tried to follow all of the “menswear rules” that I found on the Internet. However, as I began to learn more and created my own style, I found myself breaking a lot of those said rules.  Now, the only rules that I “abide” by is never leaving home without a watch (even though I rarely check it for the time), keeping my shoes clean and polished, and staying well groomed. I have learned that a nice outfit can be ruined if it is not accompanied with a fresh haircut.

    Story Leather: Lastly, “How do you adapt your own style to the ever evolving fashion world?”

    Akil: Although the fashion world is ever evolving, it does not have much of an effect on my style. I do not view myself as a trendy individual. I appreciate diverse styles but I believe in keeping things simple and only wearing clothes that look good on me and flatter my body. I think a key component in finding an authentic personal style is staying true to the things that you enjoy wearing, not “adapting” to emerging fashion trends. Not everything is a style fit for me and I’m okay with that.

     

    Story Leather: Did you have any final thought’s you’d like to mention to any young professionals out there?

    Akil: Being a young professional can be tough, especially if you start your career at a young age like I did. Therefore, it is important to remain confident in your abilities as a professional. I enjoy wearing a good suit and tie to work, because I am able to leave lasting impressions with a lot of people. However, I believe that there is no substitute for hard work. In other words, a nice suit and a smile will definitely open doors for a young professional, but having a relentless work ethic as well as being knowledgeable in your field are the things that will really help you gain the respect and admiration of others.

    Sometimes experience doesn't come with age, maybe it's persistence and the willingness to succeed. Akil is one such individual, but it as he's illustrated it's not impossible to obtain, everything is within reach as long as you're willing to work for it.

  • Story Leather Style Stories: Cayla Kluver

    Posted on September 3, 2014 by Jonathan Ly

    For this week’s style stories I got the chance to interview Cayla Kluver, an extraordinary individual that published her first book at 15 and went on to write an entire series called the Legacy Trilogy. In addition to being an author, Cayla is also a fashion enthusiast! Fashion is second nature to her as she attends high –profile conferences, book signings, and so much more.  She describes her style as chic with a bit of retro flare, but I’m sure she’ll tell me much more!

     

    Story Leather: Chic with a retro flare, I’ve never hear of two being combined. Could you tell me how you arrived to that combination?

    Cayla: There are some things that never go out of style. I think of women like Audrey Hepburn, Betty White, Jackie Kennedy, and Princess Diana – together they embody almost a century of fashion, yet they’re still cited as icons of class and taste. It’s no coincidence that these women are also known for their intellect and activism in various respects – that’s a huge part of what draws people to them, myself included, and just as much as I want to model my life after their examples from an altruistic perspective, it’s equally worth examining and appreciating how they presented themselves to the world through style. They were professionals, businesswomen, beautiful, glamorous, practical, and cutting edge all at once. Fashion always has and always will change by the decade, so in that sense I have an interest in remaining chic and following trends; but the things that have distinguished style icons over the years are timeless, and I enjoy a good Marilyn Monroe or Bettie Page throwback as a nod to that tradition.

     

    Story Leather: You've mentioned that you've always had an interest in fashion, did that develop before or after you started writing and was your style any different prior to your writing career?

    Cayla: I've always wanted to stand out. I’m an introvert so it wasn't going to happen by going to parties, having the most friends, or any of the other adolescent go-to’s. I floundered along in middle and high school trying to make a statement with my clothing and my hair. There was the first at-home dye that turned orange; the fuchsia Beatles mop; the “I’ll-wear-the-most-bizarre-garments-I-can-find” phase; the skull-and-crossbones tights; and the unforgettable braces-with-Double-Bubble-over-the-brackets phase (that was more out of necessity to protect my mouth than a real fashion choice). When I turned fifteen and my first book was released, I had to figure things out in a hurry – suddenly I was speaking to classes full of students and their parents, doing book signings, interviewing, and networking. My mom helped me dress professionally at first, then I realized that, as I developed the skills and persona of a young businesswoman, my style evolved along the same lines.

     

     

    Story Leather: As an author you must have a million events you go to. Are there certain styles that fit each occasion or are there one you always gravitate towards to?

    Cayla: For signings, book fairs, conferences and the like, I gravitate toward snappy, current, very professional styles. I love pencil skirts and blazers, though I usually mix and match them rather than wearing a full, traditional suit. I think shoes are the best way to add a unique flare to what might otherwise be a conventional outfit – a pair of striped or buckled heels can infuse personality and modernity into a look – so I always try to offset conservative styles with funky footwear. When I’m visiting and talking to middle and high schoolers, I toe the line between wanting to appear professional and command attention, and being approachable and unintimidating. A nice pair of dark wash jeans and boots never go wrong. I almost always wear blazers in either circumstance, preferably with unusual cuts.

    Story Leather:  An essential item(s), every person has a few and will find a way to include in whatever they’re wearing, what are your 3 essential items?

    Cayla: Blazers and jackets, definitely. They’re an expensive habit, but they’re an easy way to dress up even the most casual looks, and there’s so much variation in styles. They let me get creative. I’m also a huge fan of chunky, statement necklaces. Assertive jewelry is an amazing resource for showcasing confidence. The last item I almost always wear is a ring I received as part of becoming a Mary Kay beauty consultant, which I am on the side. It’s called the Decisive Woman’s Ring, and I got it because I signed up as a consultant within 24 hours of hearing about the opportunity. It has a pink stone and a silver band, and I’m really proud to wear it.

     

     

    Story Leather: Lastly I wanted to ask about your phone. Everyone has one and for some it’s a tool while for others it’s a fashion accessory, what you would consider your phone as?

    Cayla: With as much as cell phones have become essential to our culture, I think it’s impossible for a phone not to say something about its owner. There are so many different types of phones, different cases, different ringtones, different screensavers, the list goes on. My phone is a Samsung Galaxy with a purple case, my ringtone is “Don’t Worry, Be Happy”, and my screensaver is a close-up of some leaves. Even though my phone spends most of its time buried in my purse, the little details definitely say something about me.

    Story Leather: Are there any upcoming events or announcements you’d like to share?

    Cayla: My latest book, The Queen’s Choice, is out now! Its sequel, The Empty Throne, is coming out spring 2015, and I’ll be spending the school year touring and talking to classes and book clubs.

  • Story Leather's New Web Layout!

    Posted on September 2, 2014 by Jonathan Ly

    As the title explains we have a surprise coming soon! Actually it's something that a lot of our customers have been asking about, a 3D customization option so that they can see how their customized items might look like. If you've ever designed you're own shoes using Nike ID or from Shoes of Prey then you know that having an idea of how you're custom item might look like is very important. So our team has been working very hard at trying to get this up and running and we wanted to let everyone know that it's up and ready to go!

     

     

    We currently have our cellphone cases, wallets, and tablet customization up and ready to use. If you're wondering how to use our customization tool here is a link to a step by step tutorial we wrote: www.storyleather.com/blog/, but if you still have questions just send in an email to cs@storyleather.com or give us a call at 1(800) 539-1688.

    We also wanted to let everyone know that we added and removed some leather colors and patterns. So come check out our new customization tool and we'll be adding the customization tool to our other items very soon!

    For a limited time, if you provide us with your thoughts on the new website and customization tool (good or bad) we'd be happy to send you a code for 15% off your entire purchase! Please send all feedback to cs@storyleather.com

  • Story Leather Testimonial: Steve

    Posted on September 1, 2014 by Jonathan Ly

    Summer Vacation is coming to a close and we wanted to end it on a happy note. Here is a testimonial from Steve who recently got one of our side flip phone cases and although its a stock item we take the same care in making each one. Here's what Steve had to say:

    I am truly amazed by the quality of this case. I love it and will recommend your products to my co-workers.
    Thanks for a great product

    -Steve

     

     

     

    As you can see his Samsung galaxy S4 is a perfect fit and it's a nice slim design, no extra bulk! Again, even though it's a in stock case, it's still hand made with the care that we put into our custom products, that way we can make sure that you're getting the best case possible made with real leather.
