A good morning turned into an AMAZING morning, after I received these lovely beauties from ODYLYNE. A simple concept and blend of bohemian and vintage styles with a touch of modern, clean lines. ODYLYNE is only a couple years old, and their genius designs are spreading fast amongst bloggers and retail stores. They truly understand the bohemian chic look that every woman is striving for thees days: chic, elegant yet effortless. Find their full collection here: http://www.odylyne.com and check out their blog for inspiration: http://www.loveodylyne.blogspot.com. They really understand the bridge between chic and cool, and their pieces will undoubtably make you think, is this LOVE? Check back for outfit posts very soon.
This soothing melody takes you on an instrumental journey. Close your eyes and enjoy. When not writing, Cyrus produces electronic music under the name Hiatus. His debut LP Ghost Notes was created largely from samples accumulated during his time working as a journalist in Iran.
I came across one of his tracks through my friend Carolyn, who has an amazing electronic page HERE, and happily discovered more and more of his work. Stunningly beautiful and speaks for itself.
Listen to more of Hiatus’ work HERE with many generous free downloads for your to enjoy.
I found my way to the Bloggers Market today, despite the rain. I knew it was going to be a good one – hosted by Sincerley, Jules, my FAVORITE vintage clothing company, Pretty Genius, Late Afternoon, Honestly…WTF, and many more. I had to make it to this one.
The crowd was Â beautiful one and the clothes were amazing (despite the fact this is the junk in their closets they DON’T want. I felt Â a little odd about shopping the clothes they’re done with, but hey, I had to at least go check it out. Â I told myself I wasn’t shopping, but Pretty Genius gets me every time. Erin and Renee scour not only LA, but Palm Springs, SF basically anywhere they can, to find us the best vintage out there and sell it at a decent price. I walked away with two amazing finds for $60, but couldn’t have purchased much more…
These tops are hard to see on the hanger, but they hang perfect and once styled right, I can’t wait to wear them!
Chanel, daring Dior, and â€˜a la modeâ€™ Armani â€“ but what really stole the show was
Stephane Rollandâ€™s muse, ex-supermodel Yasmin Le Bon, wearing a dress heavier
and more stunning than an elaborate Elizabethan gown.In a triumphant finale to the Couture Fashion Week, Le Bon â€“ with the aid of two
assistants to arrange and carry the dress â€“ was wearing a scarlet metal-plated
ensemble weighing a considerable amount, and featuring a 45 metre, sweeping fan-
Elsewhere in the show, models could be seen wearing a gorgeous range of spring/
summer dresses. For those of us who werenâ€™t quite fortunate enough to attend
the show (let alone afford the designer pieces!), itâ€™s still easy to find high street
alternatives for a much more affordable price – shop Oasis dresses for on-trend,
high-quality summer staples.
The Oasis Lantern Colour Block Dress is reminiscent of classic Chanel style, with
a cute block colour stripe at the top and bottom, and lovely on-trend pastel colours
â€“ making it perfect for a summer stroll in the park. Alternatively, for a sophisticated
evening number, the Rosette Halter Dress is a chic LBD that would make a great
addition to any wardrobe.
The rosette-style flower on one side of the halter adds a quirky and stylish
embellishment, and the dress is not dissimilar to Giorgio Armaniâ€™s one-shouldered
little black dress, shown at the Couture Fashion Week. Giorgio chose to team his
couture LBD with a dramatic black fascinator – a brilliant idea to bring the outfit
together, and a style thatâ€™s easy to replicate on a high street budget.
So, whilst there may still be a definite winter chill in the air, itâ€™s never too early to start
planning your spring/summer wardrobe â€“ for on-trend style inspiration, take a look at
the collection of Oasis dresses available online at Very.co.uk.
Last week, stylehaÃ¼s decided to chime on the LA Fashion Week events, and we’re so glad they did. While we love Fashion Week here at Style Wax Poetic, we also are pretty selective about what we cover, but we have to admit LA is growing tremdendously in the quality of events they are producing. One for examples, was Styleahaus’ Coachella runway show at the Mondrian.
Included in the runway show were looks from Vena Cava, Sass + Bide, StyleStalker, and Naven, all lines they currently carry at their members only upscale clothing and styling boutique in Los Angeles. As well, they’re recent addition Odylyne, captured the show offering pieces that every girl must have to take Coachella inspiration to their everyday closets.
One of my favorite things about being a fashion blogger, is having the opportunity to use photography as a medium creativity. Â Los Angeles has everything you could want for a cool backdrop from hotels, to graffiti walls, to the mountains, or sea. Â It’s amazing how many fun places there are to shoot in Los Angeles.
While I was on my way to an event to view Wren’s SS12 collection, in collaboration by a short film with Gia Coppola (post to come soon on Style Section LA), I stumbled upon this amazing pink wall. Â I’d tell you where it is, but I’d have to steal your camera.
If nothing else, I hope this post inspires you get creative. Â I love how photography can instantly turn into art, while style being a medium to create.

This red belle seems to do it all. Taylor Tomasi Hill gives us an inside look at her home in New York City (via Vogue). Hill was the style and accessories director for US Marie Claire magazine, now Moda Operandi’s artistic director. Stylist, beautiful AND a great cook.

â€œI think this picture is very Arthur Elgort because it is about the marriage between real life and fantasy,â€ Taylor muses about the photographer who shot the treasured image hanging over her bed. â€œI recently had the privilege of working with him on a shoot for Moda Operandi, and I had to pinch myself because I felt like I was in a dream. This has always been one of my favorite photographs. I try to jump into pools fullyÂ clothed as often as possible, shoes and all.â€ Taylor Tomasi Hill

On Wednesday, I was happy to have the chance to view NYDJ’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection. The press viewing was held in the Sunset Towers – the suite was bustling as editors and bloggers walked the new line.Â The suite opened up to a beautiful view and a great patio, we enjoyed treats, spoke with the team and tried on jeans – sounds good to me! Sunset Towers is also dog friendly, so Chloe was happy to join me on the excitement. I wasn’t expecting cameras, had I known I would have brightened up my look with a bold lip!
Throughout the day editors made time to view the looks, as the line has been around since 2003, but gaining attention recently as they now are not only for the more mature customer. Neelo Noory, from WhoWhatWear.com (who I met with that morning coincidentally) and Marie Denee, from the Curvy Fashionista, were just a couple of the notable editors/bloggers who stopped by throughout the day, and there’s obvious reasons way. These jeans are a great fit, for the mature women and 20s + alike. They’re extremely comfortable and reasonably priced, not to mention on-trend offering bold & bright colorways! I’m obsessed with the green jeans they gifted me.Â Stayed tuned for an outfit post and giveaway coming very soon!
