Skater Skirts are EVERYWHERE!

Everywhere I go, online or in-store, I see skater skirts. To be honest: I love it, too! They’re so cute and simple yet fabulous. They’re extremely flattering and can easily be dressed up or down. Pair them with a button down blouse for work or throw on a sweatshirt for the weekend. Heels, booties, or flats, they will work with everything.

Here’s a short collection that I’ve found that are to die for:

Saint Laurent Paris. It’s Weird, Right?

This past week I was browsing through some magazines and just a few pages in, I came across an ad that needless to say took me by surprise.

It happened to be this ad in particular:

saintlaurent

While we all knew that the new head of Yves Saint Laurent was going to be changing the brand to “Saint Laurent Paris” to go back to its original, it still didn’t seem quite real until you see the first ad. Without the “Yves” and the typical letter style logo, it’s different.

I realize that is the point.  Hedi Slimane, the new creative head, is hoping to go after the younger, more modern crowd, and that’s great, but was it really necessary? Did you find that the original Yves Saint Laurent line was too old for you? To me it wasn’t old, it was classic. I put it on the same shelf with Chanel, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Fendi etc. who have no age requirement.

What’s your thoughts on the new branding?

Miss Wu is at Nordstrom

Jason Wu has launched a contemporary line called Miss Wu, exclusively for Nordstrom. The line is inspired by the 60s with a color palette of black, white, yellow, and blue. I did a post on this line back in July (here), when they first announced it and now it is finally in stores and online!

Etsy Find: Wool Woven Coat

From time to time I find myself browsing Etsy, (even if I never do actually buy anything), but today I feel like I found an item that might break that streak:

etsycoat

This gorgeous handmade wool coat made by happyfamilyjudy comes in Khaki, Orange, Green or Pink, in Small – XXLarge for $86.99. While the price is almost $90, it comes all the way from China and there is a lot of material and detail to the dress. For comparison, I just purchased a plain red peacoat from the mall for $60… why not pay another $22 for a ridiculous cute one?

As always, click the picture for the etsy page.

I had to share this find… Isn’t it just gorgeous?!?!
