I’ve always loved Alice and Olivia.  Although a little premature (even a holiday lover like myself doesn’t understand why candy canes are stocked in grocery stores in October) They’ve put together some great outfits for the holiday season! I love their use of sequins. Everybody knows that New Year’s is what sequins were made for…

I’ve been dying to go shopping! I have soo many tests this week, but instead of studying I’ve been online shopping! Here are some things I’ve found that I might just order…too bad some of them are sold out! By the way, most of these pieces are an ode to my former gothic-esque self.

Haute Hippie: Line to Love

A new super casual line that can take your look wherever you want to go. Made with comfortable jersey-esque fabrics, the line promotes a bohemian feel hence the title “Haute Hippie.”  Rather than ornate fabrics and colorful paisleys, Haute Hippie gives the feeling of a simplistic modern bohemian.  The line’s long monochromatic dresses with crocheted edges and fringe detailing forever call Penny Lane’s name.

A Preppy Post…

As you should all know, I’m spending this summer in Nantucket.  The vacation destination has a reputation for being pretentiously preppy.  I’ve never really been into seersucker pants, polo shirts or boat shoes.  Living in the city, my style has always gravitated towards the edgy, dark colored, studded look.  Since it’s not really practical to wear black all summer (I’ve debated this many times), I’ve decided to test the preppy waters.  I’m not saying I’m going to be popping my collar any time soon, but there are a few preppy additions I have added to my everyday apparel.  Here are some easy ways to incorporate summer prep into your wardrobe without going by the name Muffy or Chip.
