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.

Leave it to the Brits…

To pretty much do everything right.  Check out this pic of fashion plate and eternal goddess, Sienna Miller, below- courtesy of Cheap Chicas:

This post was brought to my attention by fellow blogger and friend, L.E.Défilé, who pointed out the similarity of Sienna’s dress to the one I was wearing (FreePeople, circa 2008).  Now, while I love CC’s suggestion of Delia’s fab sand-colored lace-up boots, I was bound and determined (and completely convinced that I can find a knock-off of ANYTHING-  just ask!) to find myself a sweet pair of doppelgangers.  And guess what?  I did just that.  In 5 minutes flat 🙂

Miss KG Swag Buckle Slouch Boot- $143 from ASOS.com.

This pair, from British outpost ASOS,  gives Miss Miller’s a run for their money.  Just loosen the top buckle, fold ’em down, and baby you’re ready to roll- celebrity style.

Holy Sale!

24 May

The UK’s paragon of amazingly tailored comfort chic, All Saints, is having an unheard of sale– 25% off SITE WIDE(!),  and I simply couldn’t keep it to myself– well, that is until I made haste of purchasing some early summer staples.  And now that I have secured them, it’s time to share!

Luna Top- Was $80, now $59

Caio bella, Luna!  How do I love thee?  Let me count the ways… 1. Your figure flattering lines  2.  Your playfully slightly plump collar  3.  Your almost daringly low neckline; and 4. Your super soft shoud-be-vintage light cotton fabric.  Here is what she looks like on, when I should have bought her dinner and taken her home in Miami.

Luna di Trezchic

Luna is worn best with black skinnies and strappy, chunky, stacked-heel platform sandals- on the organic side.  Or, dress her up with a frilly black tiered mini, gladiator sandals, and a cascade of varying metallics.

And, being an admited “asia-phile”, I just couldn’t pass up this cute little number– both for its name and the wonderfully boho-70s-esque floral pattern.

Tokyo Ditzy Dress- Was $137, now $103

Just look at that bevy beautifully draped, flowing fabric and tell me is doesn’t make you a little ditzy?  Pair it with stacks of skinny Indian bangles and some combat boots and you’re good to go scout out The Sartorialist in NYC for an impromptu photo shoot!

Before I say pip-pip-cherrio, this sale is TODAY ONLY and you must go through the All Saints UK site— the front page will say “25% off Bank Holiday Promotion” and all prices will be in GBP.   Even with the semi-insanely-high shipping rate to the US (GBP 20!), it’s still cheaper than paying full price on the site made for us Westerners, who *don’t* get the sale…

Have at it lads and lasses ❤
