Camilla Skovgaard Summer/Prefall 2010 Collection

…..(long sigh of complete and utter happiness). The wait is over. Camilla Skovgaard’s Summer/Pre-Fall Collection has arrived! What I love about Camilla is her subtle balance between a Victorian styling mentality (small leather boot buttons along the shoes and ‘corset’ cage straps) and overt strong female sexuality (with her trademark rubber saw sole, peekaboo cutouts, and intimidatingly sexy overall presence). These shoes are just that – they can make even the most timid feel comfortable wearing them as a slight departure from a boring heel, suddenly turning heads, to the most daring of women who love great shoes that make our legs look celebrity-trainer worthy and don’t mess with me I’m fierce! This is the dichotomy of Camilla’s design aesthetic,which paired with the unbelievable comfort of each style, makes her the most coveted rising shoe designer in the industry.

Chambray Chic: Elizabeth + James

Elizabeth and James Summer Chambray Shirt

Elizabeth and James Summer Chambray Shirt

Okay so I know it really is 100 degrees outside and all we can think about wearing are the lightest weight articles of clothing. How to look chic in such hot weather? Today I am wearing my ivory Loeffler Randall shorts romper from this season with my new fav shirt from E+J (above) open and belted over the ensemble with a cognac skinny – oh and of course my favorite cognac gladiator flat sandals from Sigerson Morrison. I know that you are thinking 1/2 sleeve in this weather? However, this shirt is so airy and paper-thin  that it is cooler to me to have something so light shielding my upper arm from the heat than if I was wearing sleeveless. This chambray shirt is so perfect open over shorts with a T by Alexander Wang tank underneath or button up over white jeans, tucked into a black pencil skirt for more of a night/transitional look. There are so many ways one can style this shirt is it endless. What I love best is that it is produced in my favorite button back silhouette that Elizabeth and James has made all of us obsessed over AND the chambray is so much easier to style than stiff denim.

Bottom Line: Chambray Button Down – MUST-HAVE.

Summer Weekend Essential:

Rag + Bone Gingham Cotton Dress

Rag + Bone Gingham Cotton Dress

What a perfect weekend for this dress to arrive in the store. Gingham, vintage red and cream, cotton, sleeveless, and a collar! This is the perfect summer weekend dress. It is just so easy, the length is perfect (hits just a couple inches above the knee), bra friendly, and looks great with a wedge, flat, or summer heel.  This dress is already flying out of here literally – it is just so cute and why is it always that easy cute dresses are so difficult to come by in the summer? Well, fear not because Rag + Bone just took the lead for saving holiday weekend wardrobe dilemmas!

Metal Mania: Pewter Peep Toe

silverpythonpeep

What an amazing shoe! We love the edged up rock n’ roll appeal of this pewter python peep toe. The python is painted silver on a black background. I see this immediately with white jeans during the summer, black or charcoal denim/leggings as well, and of course this would be an amazing statement piece to any black dress. This shoe is super sexy – there is not much needed to say about it aside from the fact that I can’t stop looking at it! Love the built in platform, the edgy metallic texture, and the comfort!!!

Lauren Conrad was photographed in 3.1 Phillip Lim’s navy jumpsuit at an event this week. We love how she paired the jumpsuit with caramel colored shoes and matching belt – beautiful!

Style Inspiration: Overalls with an edge

Today was an exciting day when UPS came in to deliver our latest Rag & Bone/JEAN collection. Why? Well aside from the fact that their pieces rock anyway, this shipment had one of my favorite denim pieces of the season: OVERALLS!!! I know that the term overalls almost immediately sends one into a trip down memory lane recounting all the fun Oshkosh overalls in various colors that were staples of our childhood wardrobes. I have always loved overalls – of course previously I was never able to find chic overalls that I can wear now. Well, designers Marcus Wainwright and David Neville of Rag & Bone have accomplished the impossible.  Their overalls are so beyond chic (you know that summer style I didn’t try hard and look absolutely beautiful-type chic). The wash is a darker indigo (a bit washed in but not too dark or too dark: just perfect) with x-back straps in the back and a rolled short bottom. There are so many different ways that I am going to wear these overalls. Jennifer Aniston gives overalls the quintessential beach girl chic style approach (left) and a model (right) adds tights and a gray t-shirt for a bit of downtown edge. I think I am even going to pair my Helmut Lang black blazer over it for a bit of added structure. Thank you Rag & Bone for this super fun new addition to our wardrobes!

Sweet Seersucker: Rag + Bone

Rag + Bone Seersucker Jacket

Rag + Bone Seersucker Raw Edge Blazer

Summer is arriving daily and what is the quintessential summer chic fabric? Seersucker of course! I adore seersucker and am so surprised designers don’t choose to work with it more often. The fabric is so refreshing, chic, and easy to pair up with almost any look. My favorite seersucker piece this summer is Rag + Bone’s Raw Edge Seersucker Blazer. It has a bit of an undone or worn in look to it, which of course lends to it obvious Rag + Bone identity, but also is perfect for a chic – “I’m not trying to hard” beachy summer look. It looks great paired over their strapless white denim corset dress, denim shorts, white shorts, our Rag + Bone white skinny jeans, khaki or white pants, and of course any denim pant. This jacket is the perfect summer blazer – for those staying in town to enjoy the season and also oh-so-perfect for any of our Cape Cod/Martha’s Vineyard customers. Thank you once again Rag + Bone for bringing us another great essentially chic piece that we will live in and love!
