Shop The LOOK

The 80s are not going anywhere, at least for a while. Let’s embrace it. I’m really starting to love this look of STRONG shoulders and cut outs are finding a little place in my heart as well (post to come on this soon.) H & M has some really great options right now in stores.

1. Ssense
2. Nasty Gal
3. Nasty Gal
4. H & M
5. Shopbop
6. Pixie Market – Paul and Alice

I want most of this wonderful collection! All ranging around the 30 dollar mark. Rediculous. Mixing classics with trend pieces for less is the way to go. Especially when we have pieces to chose from like these!

How adorable does Liz look here in H & M’s Garden Collection dress, perfectly mixing it with a Chanel vintage clutch and vintage looking accessories?  She’s based in San Francisco and runs Late Afternoon.  She has a beautiful blog and has great style.

Every Sunday I dedicate a post to men’s fashion. A well dressed man can say a lot, without saying a word. I appreciate all great designs and it seems a lot more guys these days are taking a liking for fashion just the way many of us women do. I love that.

Friend and designer Brandon Scott is one designer I’m excited to see go places.  B:Scott presented his Winter 2010 last Monday for LA Fashion Week. Formerly the designer at Rebecca Beeson’s men’s line B.Son, Scott branched off to launch his own collection B:Scott.  Smart move, this man has talent.  You’ll find structure and detailing on his pieces with a minimalistic approach.   He is known for fusing German and Japanese aesthetics with a West Coast flare and his hoodies and cardigan have been holding strong from season to season.

“If you haven’t really struggled in life, you haven’t really lived. If you do not give up everything to do this, you will not make it in this industry.” –Brandon Scott (URB)

Chloe in Harper’s Bazaar Russia April 2010

Style icon and actress Chloe Sevigny posed for Harper’s Bazaar Russia April 2010. Inspired by Alice in Wonderland, photographer Pavel Havlicek captrure Chloe in a dreamland of whimsical clothing, tea cups for hats, and leafed animal giants looking behind her. She inspires me. She’s so cool and seems so real.

I thought this was the cutest spread. I love the fur, headbands, multiple bangles, floral, clogged heels, and long flowly dresses!  All of these are appropriate to rock now.

There are so many great small designers out there. After attending Gen Art Fashion Alumni last week for LA Fashion week I was inspired to check out a few of the designers a little further in depth. One that I took notice to was Eric Niccoli’s Orthodox line.

Niccoli was interviewed at Stylist to describe his line.  When asked what is different about his line versus all the other many lines out there he mentions, “We have created a look and feel that is unique in the marketplace. People want to feel unique. In a world of faceless multiplicity, people want to feel like they have identity. Clothing is one of the easiest ways of expressing one’s personality and identity. So here at Orthodox we offer the medium of clothing as a means of self expression. We provide forwardly fashionable garments with an intellectually masculine aesthetic. And what man out there doesn’t want to be a fashion forward, intellectual man?”

Understated, but a lot to say.
