Miranda Bennett Studio S/S 2014

I recently met Miranda Bennett at her trunk show and she like her textiles were beyond gorgeous. Since it was my birthday I snagged a scarf alongside a Growing necklace at the Kick Pleat event. It was really a pleasure speaking with Miranda as she is not only artistically gifted but she's incredibly intelligent and sweet.  I've seen her pieces all over town and am thrilled to see her studio and collections grow with the increasing demand for her season-less scarfs and light cotton summer dresses for the upcoming summer!

My goodies from the trunk show!

Lumi Sherpa Coat


I'm loving everything about this look.  We have a little cold front happening now,
which makes me what this outfit and braid to happen now!
The coat looks like a blanket, in a good way.
I would style the coat with this Growing necklace for some visual interest.

Rainy Day Boots: Rag & Bone + Hunter

It's been raining quite a bit here lately so rain boots have been on my mind.   I love to have any excuse to "hunt" any kind of boot ever.   Rain boots in particular are elusive because they need to be comfortable, practical, and also be disguised as a regular boot when it's not raining.

To my delight, this morning I got an email introducing me to Rag and Bone x Hunter's toned down and sophisticated version of wellies. They come in tasteful combinations of navy, army green, and black.   Although I'm a sucker for navy on black, I think I'd get these in black in the mid-calf version because I like a deceptive rain boot.

You can find them at here.

A Lesson in Styling: Humanoid FW 2013

Winter is coming.  Based in the Netherlands, Humanoid's new collection is oh so cozy, textured, and full of subtle prints.   Sometimes I want to wear these layers outside in the *high* of 60F degrees here because a Texas girl can only dream. 

I got these boots.  I'm quite honestly jealous of myself.  They are somewhere in the mid-Atlantic right now and I can't wait to get them.  Look at that metallic sheen-- that's just crazy!

Ray Ban Wayfarers

I'm pretty sure the ray ban wayfarer thing is completely over... which is why I just bought some.  It happened with the J. Lo sunnies, does anyone remember?  Nonetheless, I recently bought myself a pair.  It was mainly motivated by the fact that I mainly wear black but I have about 4-5 pairs of brown sunglasses, which makes no sense.

I noticed that Ray Bans made an unusually dark tortoise colored one, which made me cave in. (see below)  They gave me one of those $20 off for your birthday coupons, which was basically the tax, but every time it's sunny out now, I can't wait to wear them.  Also it's really hard to see my eyes through them so I can basically stare at them without their knowledge.  See, I'm doing it right now in this picture and you can't tell.

Proenza Schouler + Net Art

Yesterday "Proenza Schouler released their new Tumblr-inspired fashion film directed by David Sims and Eddie the Wheel. It’s an assaulting array of lo-fi neon textures, quick edits, and layered video collages, designed for the shortest of attention spans. The clothes featured take a backseat to the brand’s assertion that it’s hip to digital culture and the aesthetics that have been circulating online under the umbrella of net artJack McCollough explains the move, stating, 'We’re into luxury, but we’re also equally interested in contemporary culture.'"

Veda X Madewell Jean Jacket + Leather Sleeves

Veda x Madewell Jean Jacket with leather sleeves 
is a more affordable version of the highly coveted
Rag&Bone version of the discontinued version of
Alexander Wang's jacket a few seasons back. (ha!)
I have one from Zara that is sad and pleathery but
I'm considering buying this one since 
I love classic denim with an edge.
