i haven’t covered ugg australia in a while, but i do love to prove you all wrong in assuming that the brand exclusively churns out slipper-like footwear. because it doesn’t! it also makes heels and wedges, as you can clearly see! the styles shown are part of the upcoming spring 2013 collection, which should start appearing in stores now.
it is interesting to note that this season’s line was inspired by the exotic wonders of marrakesh. this is hinted at in the rich neutrals, woven details, and bead accents.
oo, coach, you be lookin’ good, girl. this was the first preview i’ve attended for the brand and i was pretty excited to get up close and personal with some of the styles that you can expect to see arriving in stores for fall 2013. basically, the brand is continuing to try new things with cleaner lines and styles that have just a hint of a retro vibe.
if you must know, i fell in love with more than one structured, ladylike bag.
ah, being a single girl on valentine’s day — i imagine it’s how a zebra would feel at a racetrack. nevertheless, i attended a celebratory brunch at bobo yesterday morning. i had heard amazing things about host brand eberjey, so when i received the invitation to check out its wares at said brunch, i jumped at the opportunity. they are a bit pricey, but the pieces on display (eberjey designs robes, sleepwear, and underwear) were softer than a baby’s tush, so i implore you to keep them in mind when shopping for nightear; basically, i plan to sleep in eberjey for the rest of my life. now you know.
disclosure: in exchange for attending, i received a lovely personalized gift
for most seasons, fashion week is never just a week — in fact, for those people as deeply imbedded in the industry as one can be (not me, thank god), it lasts more than a month. mine started yesterday with the reveal of bryanboy’s collaboration for adrienne landau. admittedly, i avoid “blogger partnerships” because i’ve found many to be poorly designed, but i wholeheartedly support the fur-laden line of accessories you see above. it was quirky without being tacky, wearable, and — the best part — affordable. and how could i resist this quote from bryanboy, “i use fur as a personal punctuation mark.” bro knows how to deliver a sound bite, am i right?
i attended the launch party for l’amour nanette lepore for jcpenney. let me preface this post by saying that i have never bought anything from the retailer nor am i within the targeted demographic for this collection. that being said, these clothes were pretty cute. if i owned anything other than black and grey, i would totally wear some of them. inspired by her daughter violet, nanette designed a diffusion line where nothing is priced above $50 — settling perfectly within the budget of any middle/high school student.
if you like what you see (at any age!), everything is now available for purchase.
