i am sooo jealous because while they were in iceland our team got to visit the blue lagoon! one of iceland’s top attractions, the blue lagoon is a natural hot spring of geothermal seawater that is probably not only incredibly relaxing, but its really good for your skin too. the lagoon is situated in a lava field, and the water temperature ranges from 98-102 degrees! it sounds, and looks, heavenly. plus there’s a restaurant and hotel there that overlook the lagoon!
images, except for top two, via the blue lagoon website. can someone take me there now, please?
i’ve got cabin fever! i love all of these outfits from our lodge lookbook and they’re making me want to load up on layers and spend a weekend at a lodge with a fireplace and lots of hot chocolate. which of these looks do you guys like best?

the winner of last week’s party shoe poll was the velvet crusher peeptoe with 32%.
the dramatic landscape of iceland was the perfect backdrop for the final chapter of our november catalog, wrap me in a sweater. rocky cliffs, open fields, wild horses, snow-capped glaciers, icy blue water that blends into the sky and a dreamy mist settling over it all…
…these photos taken by our producer don’t even look real.
as mentioned, chapter six of our november book was shot by eric kvatek. whenever i find out who is shooting our catalogs i immediately look up their websites to check out their work, because our team always picks such amazing photographers to work with. well this one is no different- here’s some of his photography that i love.
eric also shot our october 2008 catalog which featured we the free and is one of my personal favorites:
i think he does an amazing job integrating the models and clothing and the surrounding landscape in his work.
here he is with model jessica mau in iceland during the shoot (via his blog):
i love these off duty shots he took of jessica mau and julia hafstrom:
It’s that time again when the stores start to become filled with sexy little numbers to begin your party season. I was out shopping in Philly this weekend and was overwhelmed by how many choices I had.
So I went home and started to arrange my thoughts on how I want my party look to be.
The idea I have in mind is a tight body con worn with heels, red lipstick and a signature necklace. I have to make this look my own by teaming it with a leather jacket and lace shawl. To finish off this look I MUST own OPI’S ‘mad as a hatter’ nail colour – it’s part of a range based on Alice in Wonderland and I need it on my finger tips everyday during holiday season!!!
So here’s my Party look number 1… I’m sure there’s going to be many more to follow!
“a variety to take on all life’s adventures. soft leathers and great details, in an assortment of lengths. These lovely items won’t add extra baggage but instead complete your perfect look.”
this section features some of our amazing bags for the season, on their own and worn by model zippora seven! she was shot here at our office in philly by our photographer anthony nocella- i ran into them shooting on my way back from getting coffee one day and was a little star struck by zippora!
i love the creedence messenger – its so unique and could fit everything you’d need for a weekend getaway. i would wear it with the lace maxi and striped tee and beanie for a look that’s a little bit grunge. i also love the idea of wearing a rugged brown satchel with some of our pretty holiday items to toughen them up!
“icelandic air was perfect for cuddling up in cozy textures and soft yarns. wrap up in a sweater and let the cold air breeze sweep past you. these glorious sweaters will add comfort to your winter days.”
the final chapter of the november book was shot by photographer eric kvatek in iceland! when i first saw the photos i was speechless. models julia hafstrom and jessica mau are stunning on their own but when combined with the dramatic icelandic landscape it really was taken to another level. i love the idea of styling the sweaters with lots of layered intimates items – over top of slips or the lacey skort, with tights and socks.
when we launched our holiday boutiques this month, i told you guys about a special section for blogger picks, featuring jemma and my favorite items. well today i wanted to share some new additions- we asked a few of our favorite bloggers to pick their favorites as well – here they are!
chantal of cocorosa – i’ve been following her blog for a while now but i had the pleasure of meeting her a few months ago and she is seriously adorable! if you want to know what she’s like check out this video on her blog. i love people who don’t take themselves too seriously! and she always looks amazing- i think she can pull of any look!
we met dylana of nana in wonderland when we worked with her and her sister natalie on our october catalog, and we fell in love with both of them! her style is a lovely combination of classic and vintage with a modern twist. she’s also a great photographer and she can play guitar and sing!
gemma of fade to black – i’ve been hooked on her blog ever since i discovered it! she has amazing style – like bohemian meets new york cool. and she’s got serious artistic talent- check out the dreamcatcher she drew!
Our skinny cords are the perfect fit for your everyday. I like them tucked into riding boots for an elegant silhouette. To me they are the best bottom to have this winter, I’m spoilt with choice with the colour palette though, can’t quite figure out which ones I want AH!
