Happy first day of Fall! Here in the Lou, our weather hasn’t received the memo. It’s been in the upper 90s all week. No worries though. It might feel like summer outside, but there are cool ways to ease fall elements into your style. Bring on the fall plaid! If fall runway trends are any indication, plaid is the must-have print of fall. And, I’ve found some of my favorite plaids from Venus, one of my brand partners, in the past. Remember my plaid cardigan?
It’s still fairly hot in St. Louis, but I’m already over my summer clothes. You too? I’m ready to embrace fall, and more importantly, fall style. Instead of running out and buying all the new gorgeous styles in stores, though, I’m refashioning some of my go-to basics. With a few styling tweaks, my oldies feel fresh for the season. Remember my gingham shirt, a year-round staple, worn with shorts in this post? What about my light-wash ankle jeans (seen beforeÂ here)?
It might still be hot outside, but it’s never too early to starting thinking about coats. When I walked into J.Crew recently, I spotted the Daphne topcoat in boiled wool in bright red. I was immediately drawn to it because of the stunning color. It comes in a real red, a power red. I tried on this power red coat and declared it my go-to coat for fall. Read on to find out why. J.Crew took a chance on this Daphne topcoat. It’s an unlined, lightweight coat. It comes in a new fabric called boiled wool.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
