Knitwear

Update: This post has been updated on January 13, 2013. Scroll down to see the new add.

All I can think of is how much this minty sweater reminds me of the Louis Vuitton Spring 2012 color palette. I’m ready to pair this cozy knit from Acne with a great pair of white jeans or some fitted capris and espadrilles. The color goes surprisingly well with Spring neutrals like white, sand, and golden khaki, as well as some unexpected shades like sun-washed pink, lilac and coral. I can see it all coming together like a spontaneous weekend escape to the beach, but a quality knit like this could set you back a few hundred dollars unless you’re lucky enough to have a friend in the know. Well, you do! Can you guess what we found?

Amazing, right? Leave it to ASOS to provide us with this lovely confection. This sweater is perfect for a stroll along a windy shore and if it’s too chilly to wear it solo, layer it under a cozy trench and add a pretty printed scarf. Either way, you’ll be sweeter than a box of conversation hearts. So, what are you waiting for? Get one for yourself and start packing for that romantic weekend!

Halloween Costume Idea – The Stylish Ladybug

by Irina on October 22, 2012

With Halloween coming up soon, we thought it’d be fun to share a few of our favorite costume ideas. If you are anything like us and hate tossing money out on disposable, cheap-looking costumes every year, then consider this idea on how to dress up for the spookiest time of the year: Buy things that will create a theme together, but which can all be worn separately as well. Our first costume inspiration following this idea is “The Stylish Ladybug” – a look that is, in all, just the right amount of costumey without being over-the-top. And once Halloween is over you can keep all of the items in your closet and make them part of your everyday wardrobe as they’re both fashionable and versatile. What do you think? Do you like our ladybug look for Halloween?

Olivia Palermo always looks fabulous and this look is no exception. I just love the way she paired two bold jewel tones (emerald and citrine) and made them look fantastic together. If I had to guess, I’d say the secret is the neutral basics she wore with them. The soft charcoal grey sweater softens the overall look and her handbag and accessories all compliment her skin and hair color. And then instead of the usual jewelry (like earrings or a necklace) she went for the unexpected brooches worn on her blazer’s collar. Vintage pieces like these are actually not very hard to find these days, with flea markets and antiques turning up many fun sparklers for just a few dollars. Of course, you can always get creative and repurpose some 1950’s shoe clips or clip-on earrings into a whole new look! The only thing left to finish off the outfit is some sassy red nail polish and a gold bracelet and watch. Ready to try it for yourself? Have fun shopping our awesome steals below!
