Fall Fashion Trends Getting ready can be the best part of going out. Special thanks to Toasted Frog

Everything you see in these pages is from a local boutique, worn on a local lovely lady and photographed in our amazing metropolis. No bones about it, Bismarck-Mandan has it going on. From killer skirts and textured dresses to cozy jackets, November is shaping up something fabulous.

Office to drinks with no time? No worries, Lot 2029 shows you how to make it work. For an easy day-to-night look without changing a thing, try pairing a statement skirt with more basic pieces. Mariko is wearing a gorgeous metallic gold and black peplum skirt with a sheer black tank and cropped lace blazer. Spice it up with a gold buckled belt and rhinestone drop necklace.

Lot 206 2029 N 4th St worn by Mariko Mourhess Hair Styled by Adam Miller, Shear Perfection - Inside Salon Concrete Photography by Mark Schlanser Photography, Bismarck

Black Lace Blazer: Viva You Black & Gold Peplum Skirt: Do & Be Sheer Black Tank: Bon Mere Burgundy Lace Should Dress: TRAC Camel Studded Purse: MMS This Lot 2029 burgundy dress is as comfy as it is chic. Cinch the dress in with a skinny black and gold belt to accentuate the waistline and complete the look with a studded purse. STYLE TIP: Work it at the office with a neutral blazer or cardigan and add some tights!

When the leaves have fallen, cozy up with Hey Ocean and the perfect jacket. Pull together any outdoor look with a scarf and turn everyday jeans into a chic outfit. Perfect for school and errands - add some earings and take it to happy hour.

Black Skirt: Edition Sheer Blouse: Tryst Desert Wedge Boots: TOMS

Camel Jacket: Scarf: Misun Jeans: Black Orchid

HEY OCEAN 204 E Broadway worn by Mariah Huseth Photography by Mark Schlanser Photography, Bismarck

Modern twist on classic fashion, this skirt-blouse combo make the nighmemorable. A great wedge pulls together this Hey Ocean ensemble beautifully. Add a long necklace to feature the scooped neckline.

A textured dress from BREA is a great segway from warm summer nights to crisp, fall evenings. Paired with a chunky nude pump, this dress rocks well into the weekend. A light, wool jacket with ruffle detailing and oversized buttons tops off the outfit for chilly weather.

The key component in great confidence is great denim. Known for their $40 designer denim, MODE pairs superb style with effortless fashion. A fitted blazer polishes the look from dawn til dusk. MODE has every occasion covered and all the fall trends complete this look with their ballet flats or pumps.

DJ Kirk- Dickinson


DJ Trix- Captain Freddy’s Bismarck


The power of the DJ is defining all things music right now. International names like Skillerex, Dead Mau5, David Guetta, and Calvin Harris combining forces with artist like Rihanna, Chris Brown, Florence and the Machine, Sia are breaking down sound genre barriers. The DJ’s #1 job is to ALWAYS keep the crowd moving. Music reflects culture and the North Dakota scene crosses a lot of musical lanes. Check out DJ Kirk and DJ Trix – a good radio record will usually come out of the club first. Personally, I always watch how a crowd reacts to a song to determine if it should be played on HOT 97.5.
