Lela Rose x Lane Bryant Press Preview

Hi Lovies,

Tuesday I had the pleasure of attending the Lela Rose x Lane Bryant Press Preview. This will be Lane Bryant's third collaboration with a high fashion designer. As quoted on her website "Lela is an american designer who is widely recognized for her unique aesthetic of juxtaposing refined elegance with modern whimsy, through brilliant color, beautiful fabrication and handcrafted details. With her eponymous collection, Rose has established a fresh point of view in American fashion and continues to redefine a sophisticated, yet modern lifestyle".

The event was held at the beautiful "The Park" restaurant in the Chelsea area, which totally set the scene for her gorgeous pieces. The collection featured her signature watercolor prints as well as some geometric ones. Most of the pieces can easily be taken from day to night and are so versatile. I had the please of speaking with Lela and she is very enthusiastic about the collab. She loves designing apparel for woman so they can feel confident and beautiful at the same time. You can expect to see the line hit Lane Bryant stores by mid April. It was a great night filled with fashion, good conversation and great company. Looking forward to see how well this collab does and possibly snatching up some pieces! Here are some pics from the night...

Green and Plaid

Hi Lovies!

When I first got this skirt from Eloquii back in August, I immediately fell in love with it. Even though I got it towards the tail end of summer, I loved the fact that it was a great transitional piece and could easily be worked into my Fall wardrobe. The first time, I wore it with a leopard crop top (see here) but I totally couldn't wait to "Fall-ify" it this time around (that's a real word, look it up! lol)

Pink, Stripes and Leather

Hi Lovies!

When I first saw this Cape from Boohoo on my blogger boo Jeniese from The Jenesaisquoi, I thought it was the neatest thing I've ever seen, she looked amazing in it. Not to mention the beautiful hot pink color that just screams attention. I had never bought anything from Boohoo before but I've seen a few pieces on other bloggers. I browsed the website and saw quite a few things that I loved including this cape but I held back on buying anything. About 2 weeks ago I revisited the Boohoo and found that the cape was on sale, I of course took this as a sign and bought it! I wore it to work and then after to an event and received an abundance of compliments on it. So I guess I can say it was a smart purchase.

Window Pane Plaid

Hi Lovies!

I'm a girl who normally likes a lot of color in her wardrobe but there's something about black and white that never gets old. I love the polished and classic look of the color combo. So when I saw these Window Pane Plaid Kady Pants from Eloquii, I immediately had to have them. Friday was my birthday (yes, I was born on Halloween!) and also the Eloquii Holiday Preview, so of course I wore something from them. I love the bold statement the print makes and how versatile they are. I can see me wearing these pants in a multitude of ways. I also enjoy that they are made of scuba material which is so forgiving and comfortable. I purchased these in a size16 because I heard they run a little big in the scuba material and I'm glad I did, they fit great! You can currently get 40% off on these pants with the code SAVE!
