Romantic Armour

I love love love the designs by Armour Sans Anguish! One of a kind romantic dresses and tops that are truly couture. Dreamy and so feminine, yet the mix of fabrics provides a rich depth to the looks. In addition to designer Tawny Holt's beautiful styling, she uses recycled and salvaged materials to create her clothes breathing new life into the fabrics. Here is my current favorite item from her shop...

The Anais and June Dress

Sumptuous Spring

Spring RTW 2010 is showcasing some incredibly luxurious looks. Detailed fabrics, rich colors, sequin accents, here are some of my favorite outfits that I would wear right now...

Constantly amazing with immense details and the darker edge.

The richness of the colors is gorgeous, and the styling is dramatic yet wearable.
I love that the floral print doesn't look saccharine sweet, the pop of black is a nice contrast...

The dress reminds a bit of Herve Leger, but more structured and I adore the little jacket, it's a unique shape and adds depth.

This is a delicious confection of beauty. Shoulders and layering in front are gorgeous, again loving the black contrast.

So beautiful, the skirt part of the dress, the style of the top, the belt, the shoes...perfection.

So ethereal, she looks like a heavenly ballerina. This dress is elegant, yet still looks fresh.

I love this one, it has a bohemian feel to me, with the neckline giving it a heavy dose of luxe.

Chain Reaction

I found 2 great necklaces in very different places this past weekend. This stunning mix of beads, rhinestones, and silver chains is my new favorite necklace. I have been looking for a mixed necklace that I really loved and this is the one. I was shopping at a Free People store and picked this up not even knowing it was on sale. With that added bonus, it was marked as $70 but I picked it up for $20!

I was browsing in a local secondhand store and came across this black and antique brass belt. It was way too big for me, but I bought it anyway and tied a lot of knots in the ribbon part of the belt. It does make a cute belt- still a little big, so I slipped it on as a necklace and I love it!

Brace Yourself

A friend of mine was cleaning out her jewelry case and gave this pretty dynamic piece to me. It is a bracelet by Biche de Bere that is very substantial which I like. At first glance it was definitely not a bracelet I would normally purchase for myself. But it is so textured and beautifully crafted that I decided to give it a shot. So I put it into the mix of what I already own and I have to say I like how she looks with her new friends! The mix includes from left to right: Silver bangle from Nordstrom, green and gold thread bracelet from Forever 21, the BdB, sand/silver bracelet from Forever 21, gold bracelet from a thrift shop, and 3 metal bangles from a set that I have had since I was seriously 13 and have no idea where they came from. Somehow they have always made the move with me from jewelry box to jewelry box!
