The new arrivals at Kick Pleat have been really lovely lately. I’m loving their styling, choice of colors and shapes, and overall mood. There are so many stunning, versatile pieces that seem really special, but also immensely wearable. Very memorable closet staples! Some of my current favorites are the Striped Boatneck Top (the beautiful sleeves!), the Marta Top, the Ballerina Tunic, the Daisy Top, the linen Wrap Skirt, the Clay Tie Dress, the silver Hardin Pant, the Morris Pant, the Moss Linen Culottes, Lato Mules, the Rain Duster Earrings, the Roma Chandelier Earrings and the Post Modern Cuff in peach. Oh, and so many beautiful pairs of shoes. Plus, the sale section is amazing right now! More HERE.
I can’t believe it was nearly 7 years ago that I first was first taken with a sweet dress from YMC and mentioned it one of my very first Honey Kennedy blog posts. I’ve been taken with YMC collections several times since and now I’m loving their new Spring/Summer designs for 2017. The breezy first look below is my favorite — the Happy Club skirt with the Naima Top. I’m also feeling the Perhacs Dress, the striped Agnes Dress, the Agnes Top, the linen Kramer Trench, the Cousteau Jacket, the Kinski Sweater, and the Modern Lovers Shirt. It all feels very art teacher leaves work to go sailing in the early 1980s — love it. More HERE.
While waiting for spring to swoop in like a mood superhero, I’ve been needing a massive dose of colorful cheer. I’ve been loving the beautiful prints from Richmond, Virginia-based artist Marleigh Culver. Her masterful color combinations and organic silhouettes are doing a wonderful job of perking me up in this interim before the much needed spring bulb flower explosion show. I can’t help thinking how amazing Marleigh’s work would be on textiles for garments, wall hangings, and quilts — dreams. I’m eyeing a few of her prints for a gallery wall I’m planning for our office, but it’s a tough choice! More HERE and HERE.
I’ve been admiring this dreamy collection from Maria Stanley, out of Los Angeles, for Spring/Summer 2017. Her romantic and theatrical designs really bring on the swoons. Some of the pieces are available for pre-sale on her site and I’m sure her new designs will pop up in shops soon. I still love her Krissy Blouse, Benson Blouse, Opal Dress, the magical Rue Dress, and the cute details on the blush Alane Turtleknit still get me. More HERE and HERE.
