Abbey Lee is running through our minds a bit too much lately and with the launch of our Baroque trend, which is full of rich velvets, clashing textures, and beautiful jewel tones, we thought why not experiment with some looks up in the studio. We printed out some inspiration tears and got styling; here are our Abbey Lee looks!
We love Abbey Lee, and we love our new trend Baroque!
For this DIY we used the beautiful jewel encrusted ornament designed by Chan Luu. Our clever team used this ornament to create an adorable headband in just a few easy steps! All you need is a plain old headband and some fabric glue.
Untie the ornament from its hook, and then bit by bit, use the fabric glue to adhere it to the headband. We used clips (pictured below) to hold the ribbon in place as it dried.
That’s it! I love how the hanging chains give this a delicate feel:
We removed the hook from the small gold feather ornament using the pliers, and then untied the red string from the larger feather. We used the string to tie the smaller feather to the ring of the larger feather.
To add a decorative touch, we wrapped the red string around the gold ring, finishing it with a knot. Now just attach the ring with the two feathers to the keyring, and you’ve got an awesome new keychain!
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Our office is pretty quiet today – but we do have this adorable visitor, Mandy :) Our email marketing manager rescued her, I think she’s one of the sweetest things I’ve ever seen!
We’ve been gearing up for holidays for quite some time now, and the release of our November lookbook (staring models Linda Vojtova and Ruby Aldridge) confirms that the festive season is finally upon us. It’s a magical time of year that inspires a uniform of glitter and glitz. Everywhere you look ladies have out their best eye-twinkling sequins. Parties are lined with shining gems in head-to-toe metallics – catching the light and bouncing back an elegant glimmer. The world, for two months or so, becomes spectacularly hypnotizing exactly like this book. Which look whisks you off into the twinkling dreamland?

Our head intimates buyer is one stylish lady who knows what she likes and sticks to it. Two of those things definitely seem to be platform shoes and oversized tops. She pulls the two together in a modern hippie sort of way. It’s chic with free spirited accents, like a vintage print or edgy hand piece, thrown in. Her hair is almost always down and perfectly tousled to top off the look.
Stars & moons on her nails!
The fur bomber makes the look (similar style here).
