The World "Accordion" To Pleats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pleats Galore!!!

Skirts have really been on my radar for the upcoming season and I apparently am not alone! The next hot thing in skirt wear are Accordion Pleats! These little numbers have quite a vintage appeal and if you love the look, but don't want to spend the bucks, check out one of your local vintage/thrift shops, like this one, which was an all time fave of mine while in undergrad, with little spending money! It kept me very fashion forward and you are sure to find a pleated skirt in one! Not really into vintage wears, but still want test out the look? Try Shopbop or Zara! They both have great takes on this classic look! Ladylike, classic, and comfort all rolled up in one pleat! I'll indulge...Well, maybe after baby!

P.S. for those of you in the DC metro area or those of you taking a trip this way soon, be sure and check out the brand new Nordstrom Rack which just opened a week ago in the Friendship Heights area of DC. It is quite worthy to be praised!!! I spied all the top brands(Valentino, Kate Spade, Michael Kors, Joie, DVF) and even heard that Tory Burch was in the building(not the actual designer, but her famous wears), but of course they were gone in a heart-beat. Organized, well lit, and cell phone reception!!!! Call all your girls and make that trip to the Rack!!!

The Print Of It All!!!!!!!

In The Tribe

 All in the name of tribal prints!!!! That's what's hot and new in skirt and dress wear and I absolutely love it!  Marc by Marc Jacobs scored big with this trend last spring/summer and I was fortunate enough to score this little number for less than nothing-it was quite a steal! Well, this season brings more dramatic prints and varying lengths. I am quite smitten with the above the knee stylings, like this one! But if you aren't one for baring all that leg try out some of these great lengths found here and here. Dress your tribal print up or down for a night on the town or throw on a simple tee, flats, and make the most of the day! Either way you are sure to call all attention and be part of the in tribe!!!

My Two New Fav's!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My new Fav!

Something Good!!!

So, Ive just stumbled upon two great new designers and I think I'm in Love!!!! Have you heard about The Addison Story or Something Else by Natalie Wood??? Both are two that are new to me and quite fabulous, I might add! Let's start with The Addison Story...I first discovered them in Neiman's Spring Catalog when I spied this dress-Love it! Their line to me evokes a vintage quality-very easy, laid back, fun, flirty, and flouncy! And the price point ($60-250) ain't so bad, either. You can find them locally carried at Rue14 and online here and here. You are sure to be pleased! Next up, Something Else! On a recent trip into one of my local fav's Redeem, I scoped all my usual suspects, Funktional, Kai-Aakmann, etc., I spotted, Something Else that quickly caught my attention! Like little pieces of clothing art, Natalie Wood, designer/artist reigns from down-under-Australia and brings her creative talents to the main land! Clothing with an edge is just how I would describe it! Easy to wear tees, tanks, sweaters, and dresses! Definitely worth checking out here! Need a little eye candy convincing??? Here ya go....
