Alice + Olivia

Coastal Sequin Dress

I have spent hours searching for the perfect holiday dress(s). This lovely holiday season gives us many opportunities to "dress to the nines"! It truly is my favorite time of year. I am not embarrassed to admit that I start thinking about what I am going to wear on New Years Eve around Thanksgiving... Anyway, I'm so excited! I actually just found the dress yesterday, and I can not wait to show you guys. That being said, while I was browsing through some online shops, I came across the Alice + Olivia holiday collection. Moreover, I would like to pay homage to these gorgeous 40's glam inspired looks.

It's That Time of Year

Margaret Steen Crochet Coat 

I am dedicating this post to my obvious obsession with winter coats. Well obsession is a strong word. Maybe it's more accurately described as an ongoing desire to have a whole closet full of them to choose from. That being said, i'm poor college student; I obviously can't afford to splurge on a single coat! Well, if I only eat Ramen Noodles and those free samples at food courts, maybe I could... Haha. Okay, i'm done rambling I swear. In short, the main point of this post is to show you some adorable and affordable winter coats. If you would like to add one to your closet, the link under each picture is a direct flight to your purchase destination. P.S. I actually just ordered the "Margaret Steen Crochet Coat" I can't wait until it arrives!

Dear Creatures Autumn 2011

Dear Creatures' autumn 2011 collection is called "(We) The Good Girls". The color pallet of this collection consists of a beautiful combination of dark-rich blues and greens, and soft hints of pale lavender and grey. The very structured, and somewhat masculine inspired garments are complimented with high waisted silhouettes, feminine textures, and subtle girly details (i.e. the hemline of the scallop shorts). Dear Creatures sure put out a lovely fall collection.

It's official, ShopRuche, is my new favorite online boutique. The story about how the shop came about is absolutely endearing. Ruche was created and designed by newlyweds Mai and Josh Olivo in 2008. Mai was having a difficult time finding clothes that she liked. (I definitely know the feeling.) Anyway, she started to sell clothing and jewelry online that she loved! She then created ShopRuche, which started from their own home. Mind you, at this point Mai and Josh were still working their 8-5 jobs. So, they would ship packages during lunch, and answer emails during breaks. The day wasn't over yet though! As soon as Mai and Josh got home, they instantly went to work on Ruche, barley getting any sleep. (Sounds like my schedule here at college hah). They then took a leap of faith; Mai quit her job as a web developer and Josh quit his job in engineering management. "Leaving our budding careers in the corporate world was nerve racking, but it was the best decision we've made together, plus we could finally get some sleep!" Their story is so inspiring! It reminds me of an Eleanor Roosevelt quote, "the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."

Fall/Winter 2011-12 Shoe Wish List

She Bows What She Wants

I recently moved into my new apartment! I haven't been able to post, unfortunately, because I did not have internet access until now. Oh well, all is well that ends well right? I happy to be posting again. Anyway, I desperately need some new shoes. Walking to class hastily, and running around the city with friends, really takes a toll on my shoes.  I've been on the look out for some cute new shoes for this fall and winter. Here are few pairs off my wish list. I can't pick just one! I want them all!

Colenimo A/W 2011-2012

"Aviatrix" A/W Collection

I have been a fan of designer Aya Nakagawa from the beginning. Through the years her collection, and my blog simultaneously gained more and more recognition. I enjoyed watching her line, Colenimo, flourish--each collection never fails to amaze. Her work has become the talk of the town, since she launched her first collection, and for good reason. Aya Nakagawa's talent is undeniable. She executes her point of view as a designer beautifully, creating pieces that will never be considered out of style. For Autumn Winter 2011/12 Colenimo presents " 'Aviatrix', a womens wear collection inspired the pioneering female pilots of aviation's golden age". To learn more about this collection visit to the Colenimo website

The photos featured in this post come from an editorial called "The Independent" I found in her personal portfolio. She definitely knows how to put an outfit together.

LouLou Loves You...

If you would like a custom head band like the one above, click here to find out how.

and the feelings are mutual. My love for hair accessories is no secret, and I always look forward to new additions to the LouLou Loves You collection. As I have mentioned in previous posts about this line, everything is handmade. The collection has a a beautiful dreamy almost ethereal-like vibe. Maybe it's because little birds, and cute little forest animals, helped weave the flowers together to make the perfect headband. You know, like something out of a Disney film. Okay, okay, you don't have to tell me that it didn't happen quite like that exactly. I figured that out the day I sang to the birds outside so they'd help me clean my room... Uhh anyway, where was I? Oh! While they may not have been crafted the same way Snow White would have gone about it. There is no denying that you'll sure look as lovely as a fairytale princess.
