Post image for how to style: the lace mock neck top!

more styling inspiration for you today! we had our stylists demonstrate four ways to wear the lace mock neck top – one of our favorite layering pieces for fall and winter. featuring our lovely web merchandiser as model :)

look one:

101_4025

the lace mock neck adds a touch of sexiness to a casual look of jeans and a plaid button down. i love how our stylists layered two plaid shirts to get a mix of prints! perfect the look with a pair of rad platforms :)

in this look: lace mock neck top; levi’s 606 painted skinny; trimmed in gingham shirt; ever plaid shirt; wani slouch knee sock; miramar straps platform.

look two:

101_4053
101_4054
101_4049

still want to wear your spring and summer dresses in fall and winter? just layer the lace mock neck underneath and add some tall socks and heels!

in this look: lace mock neck top; aran sheer tall cable sock; ballet platform; egyptian printed bodycon dress; ring coming soon.

look three:

101_4068
101_4083
101_4082
101_4080
101_4091

this look was all of our favorites :) pair the lace mock neck with a maxi skirt, tee and biker boots for the ultimate casual cool outfit.  isn’t that necklace amazing too?

in this look: lace mock neck top; cp shades plaid maxi skirt; we the free graphic a-line tee; CP Shades Clothingsport stripe slouch sock; brit boot (no longer avail.); grecian circle ring; metal leaf ring; necklace coming soon.

look four:
101_4098
101_4099
101_4110
101_4106
101_4103

the last look is all about the layers – a lace maxi dress over the mock neck top, the striped tee to dress it down a little, a tweed jacket and over-the-knee boots! she looks amazing.

in this look: lace mock neck top; daughters of the revolution lace maxi dress; we the free gathered stripes top; tweed jacket; joe lace up over the knee boot; ring coming soon.

thanks ladies!

Post image for An errie sky and the harvest moon

Did you guys see the beautiful sky last night?

I have never experienced the Harvest moon before, and it was pretty magical.

After work last night I had a little test drive in the parking lot and had to push the break down to capture the magnificent sky that I could see through the side mirror, a deep orange glow bursting through soft grey clouds deserved to be captured on the i-phone to be kept safe in the nostalgic folder.

I wished I was laying in a corn field last night, way out in the middle of nowhere to dwell on the full evening but a crazy storm blew into Philly and swallowed up the view of the harvest moon.

However the early evening was pretty incredible!

with today being the first day of fall, these table arrangements i saw on design sponge – using straw flowers and heirloom tomatoes -  felt really appropriate as today’s DIY.  the colors are gorgeous!

Post image for among the wildflowers

one more really cool fact about the wedding i posted about yesterday? the invitations contained wildflower seeds! the paper can be planted, leaving guests with a patch of wildflowers to serve as a beautiful reminder of the occasion. such an amazing idea.

check out the website where they ordered the invites here.

Marissa -Oct 08, 2010, 2:39PM
Love this! Thinking about using this for my wedding. Would you happen to know if the green paper was part of the invitations or if it was added on after? Also where did she find that adorable ribbon? Thanks!

NY Store Visit

During a trip to New York last week I popped into the 5th av store to check out how the girls that work there are styling themselves with the new collection.

I asked them to pick out their favorite outfit for early Fall and here is what they choose. Don’t they look adorable!

That morning the new skinny high waisted 601 Levis arrived in and they looked great, a flattering high waist that worked well with a tucked in shirt, and great to tuck into boots.

The girls were super sweet and inspirational!

Post image for new vintage loves

we have some really cool new additions to our vintage loves collection this week! our vintage buyer took ten pairs of 1970s and 80s round-toe western boots to upstate new york, where she worked with woodstock artisans to transform the boots into these one-of-a-kind works of art. our buyer loved these boots because the round toe makes for a better fit, and she wanted them to have the perfect wear and tear look. to achieve this, she and the artisans she worked with used sandpaper and then carefully hand painted each boot with woodstock artist michael r. so that each pair is truly one of a kind.

as she was driving one day, ali spotted this awesome 1940s chevrolet on the side of the road and decided it would be perfect for an impromptu photoshoot with the boots. the rusty, cracked paint and vintage style of the truck could not have made a better setting for the boots to be shot in.

Post image for Turning Leaf

Over here in Philly I felt the chill in the air today, and it felt good. Autumn is my favorite time of year, the freshness: the crisp leaves, the warmth of the colours, and the opportunity to wear cozy clothes. I get very sentimental when I feel the chill biting through my skin. I got to my desk this morning and listened to Owen on my ipod, thoughts of getting lost in a forest and kicking leaves around, finding a log to sit on to drink hot chocolate from a flask came flooding into my imagination. It felt nice…

I think I’m going to stay right here in this mindset all day long.

Ohhhhhhhhhh man, I love autumn!

I’m pretty excited about going to an American pumpkin patch and going apple picking for a day.

I’d love to know if you guys have any fun Fall activities to share as this is my first American Fall :)

jenny lewis and her boyfriend johnathan rice have teamed up to record an album, “i’m having fun now”, and it sounds like just that – fun. warm, sunny pop rock is the best way to describe their sound – you may recognize jenny’s voice from rilo kiley, which she fronted.  they’re also just a really cute couple. i remember reading an article in rolling stone a while back about the resurgence of laurel canyon, where some of the greatest music of the 60s was written.  the article talked about how jenny lewis and johnathan rice would hold regular jam sessions at their laurel canyon home, in a style very reminiscent of the 60s –  i thought that was pretty cool. you can definitely sense a little bit of that alternative spirit in some of their songs.
