Bring on the Bourgeois

16 Aug

Do. Want. These. Now.

ASOS ALATE Almond Toe Cuff Lace Up Boot $117.95

ASOS, how do I adore thee?? In so many ways than you’ll ever know, but my wallet is very familiar with.

Pair these lovelies with a fitted 80s-yet-updated denim mini, black tights, a sweet tee and your favorite biker jacket– and you’re all set for early fall.

Rock the Casbah


Vintage Modern

10 Aug

If I was asked to sum up my thoughts on the budding collection of sisters Elisa Mona and Stella June in two words… well, just refer the above title.

I was pointed to their saucy yet sweet site by my friend Amy, who loves sourcing and supporting independent (not to mention local!) designers just as much as I do.  The thing that screamed out to me the most about Mona et June’s line truly IS the seamless integration of old and new, trendy and classic, etc., etc.

Prairie Flower Dress- $50.99

This is accomplished combining the equally fashion savvy, but genre-polar minds of the siblings (Mona- vintage, June- classic/modern).  It’s a marriage made in couture heaven, or rather, Philadelphia to be precise.   The Prairie Flower Dress (above) is a shining example- taking the always hot frontier trend and melding it with lines reminiscent of a top fit for Miss Page.

Oh, and to deepen my love even further for this line- everything on the site is under 70 bucks!!!… well, at least now, during the sale.  But still!  The “priciest” frock I could find was a mere $67… a drop in the bucket in the name of fashion- and having something that’s truly one-of-a-kind.  Go on girls!
