until i saw her wares, i didn’t know how seriously i should take a designer who calls herself mr. kate but this recent lookbook, entitled “winter rose,” proves that you cannot judge a book by its cover. all of the pieces, which feature roses and delicate, protruding thorns, feature 18k and rose gold. but even more beautiful than the jewelry are its prices (nothing in the collection costs above $125).
november isn’t over quite yet, which means you still have time to scurry over to your nearest zara and pick up any of the items in the lookbook shown above. i have a mind to do just that since that black puffer coat is doing things to me, which feels strange because it isn’t normally what very large down-filled outerwear does. also, if you’d like to take these looks as gospel, bare legs will be a *thing* this winter. i’m nervous.
she and reverie's latest lookbook, shot by franey miller in the lovely borough of brooklyn, is called “no sleep ‘til" and has me tempted to request a half-day at work and go back to bed. the photoshoot combines three of the label’s current capsule lines resulting in an eclectic yet dreamy collection perfect for spring 2014. also, who can resist a beastie boys reference? you’d have to be soulless.
for anyone who knows me, it is hella strange that i’m on the pearl train right now, but i’m loving all of the punk twists on what has typically been considered a classic, old world-ish piece of jewelry. first, i bought this ring from lillot, and now i’ve got my eye on everything sophie bille brahe, particularly her latest collection (thanks tole fashion).
for spring 2014, lizzie fortunato took a little jaunt to asia with a collection inspired by japanese culture. according to refinery29, “the shibuya pieces reflect the neon lights of fashion capital tokyo, while the naoshima pieces, with their wooden and painted-porcelain beads, honor their namesake old fishing town.” all i know is that the jewelry and handbags in their entirety are gorgeous in an ‘old world’ costume kinda way, like what your oh-so-chic grandmother would put on before a night out.
the lonely heartsfall 2013 collection is making me want to turn the nirvana up real loud. what is most interesting about this particular launch is that lonely hearts is a label nearly exclusively known for its innerwear, rather than ready-to-wear; though i’m not against this expansion, i’m not particularly impressed by it. moving on…
does such a thing as “cold and flu chic” exist? if not, it should because steven alan's fall 2013 collection exemplifies the aesthetic and given that i have caught a case of sars, life would be so grand if i could open my closet doors and find these clothes.
i’ve been talking about boobs a lot lately (and this post will further the referral traffic i’ve been getting by pervs google searching accordingly), but we laydeez know how hard it is to find a well-fitting button-down. it is one of the most legitimate grail quests in existence. a recommendation from erin to check out tradlands did not go unnoticed and i reached out to the san francisco-based brand; i couldn’t resist the opportunity to give a label that touts handmade heritagewear a spin (review to come).
before i reveal my overall thoughts about tradlands’ fit and wear, check out its lookbook and click here to browse jackets and button-downs of the utmost quality. oh, and get 15% off your order at checkout by using the code FARPITZS15.
you guys, it is almost november — i know, crazy, but if you care about shopping as much as i do, you may want to pop into zara before its october trf collection disappears because that knitwear is goo-ood.
there is one boutique in manhattan that i’ve been meaning to visit — american two shot is located in the heart of soho and stuffed with the coolest brands this side of the hudson. run by two best friends, you may want to apologize to your wallet before entering; the store’s latest lookbook supports this claim.
