I haven’t officially posted anything about this brand until now. Some of their skirts were featured in a previous post. In general, the quality is great. My main qualm is that the sizes run very small. I’m not sure if their larger sizes sell out quickly or that they don’t cater as much to clients sized medium and up? What I have purchased I’ve loved. Below are some of my favorites from various collections…
I normally don’t wear many dresses or skirts. I’ve always been a mostly pants kinda girl but lately the romper trend has inspired me to try new things and get out of my current fashion rut. I bought one to give it a try. It’s from Nordstrom Rack online, by the brand Fraiche by J, and is labeled their floral tie-neck version in Aster. What do you think? I just love those floral prints! The neutral blush color and blouson sleeves make this piece eye-catching and uniquely beautiful! I’m planning to pair this with either summery espadrilles or tan wedges ;)
My favorite fashion and style magazines are British Glamour, Allure, Marie Claire, InStyle, and Lucky. I really love their formats a lot and I love mini-sized magazines such as British Glamour because they can easily fit into a purse or tote without being rolled up. I think the American version of Cosmopolitan has caught on. I most enjoy Allure’s annual edition of makeup winners/Reader’s Choice Awards. Although I don’t always agree with the choices, it’s still exciting to see what other cosmetic enthusiasts like =). I’m always looking for a copy of InStyle to browse through whenever I’m getting a pedicure. So much fun and so very relaxing!
I saw a copy of American Fashion Cookbook offered during a Gilt sale and although I currently have ample cookbooks, I had to have it! What could be better than perusing through recipes which have helped fuel the creative forces of some of the world’s most amazing fashion designers? My only qualm is that Katherine Kwei (my favorite handbag designer) is missing from this book. I’ve tried a few recipes from this book so far e.g. Saturday Night Chicken, Arroz Con Pollo, Sweet Potato Casserole etc. and really love them. Pick up a copy!
