So I know that I have been M.I.A. lately but things have been crazy at work! The textile design company that I work for is about to launch a new collection with one of my designs and we are trying to get it ready as quickly as possible! Anyway, I hope everyone had a fun new years!! I wore a sparkly dress with a sweater over it to go to a bonfire party, half froze, drank a lot of champagne and Disaronno, and pretended to be a wizard with my sparklers. My new year's resolutions are to eat healthier, work out more often (i.e. at all), start cooking more, and to update this blog more often. So for those who haven't already seen them, I wanted to share some images with you all of eco-conscious designer Yeohlee's Pre-Fall collection for 2014. I love the stark, mostly black and white palette and gorgeous silhouettes, loosely inspired by early modernist architecture from Rudolph Schindler's Los Angeles works. Yeohlee says "I try to create clothes that have kinetic energy and are full of movement". She focuses on both sustainability and functionality. The collection features practical outerwear such as a water-resistant coat and hooded rain slicker. Enjoy!
I am seriously obsessed with Free People. I feel that this is a brand that allows me to express multiple sides of my personality. There are looks ranging from grunge to romantic, hippie and bohemian, to beach and festival wear. Free People allows room for me to be unique since many of their items can be layered and styled in multiple ways. Like many great things in the fashion world, Free People clothing can be pricey. Most of the things I am lusting over right now are what I consider to be "investment pieces". I know a few people who have bought Free People dresses for their boho or outdoor wedding dress (something I will definitely consider if I get married). To post everything I love from Free People I would have to post basically the entire site so here are four things that I am seriously drooling over.
Hill Country Lace Up Dress , Joe Lace Up Boot (by Jeffrey Campbell), Heart of Gold Skirt , Backstage Boot (by Jeffrey Campbell)
Free People also has a really cool blog you can check out by clicking here.
Comment below and tell me what your favorite brand or style is! Also, which boots do you like better of the ones above? Because I'm leaning towards buying the lace up ones but I can't decide!
