Despite Christmas’ alleged reputation, fall is truly the most wonderful time of the year! It’s honestly the only season when I truly enjoy getting dressed. Spring lasts for like five minutes. Midwest winters are just gross and ruin all your shoes. And I loathe summer. Just no.
Here’s what I’ve been wearing lately, as we prepared for and after we launched Hello Holiday on October 1st. The best perk of owning an online store is definitely dressing up in all our goodies everyday!
When cuffed, you see the red-orange lining of the sleeves on this blazer –how clever!
I have been waiting for this top. Impatiently waiting and waiting and this week my wait is finally over! The front side and sleeves are made of sweater material, so they’re warm, and nice and stretchy at the same time. It’s the perfect top to pair with leggings or skinny jeans, since it’s a little bit longer in the back (and the back is all, “SURPRISE BITCHES, I’M POLKA DOT!”).
The fit of this dress is amazing, and we’re already getting requests for custom orders in extended sizes (which we will definitely fulfill, just ask)! It’s part of our emerging designer collection from designer Jane Round. I love that it’s long sleeved for fall but it’s not a super heavy fabric, so you’re not sweltering when you wear it and won’t be too hot if you pair it with a jacket. And it’s black and white so you can wear it with a million different shades of tights (I basically get dressed everyday so I can wear tights).
This coat was featured in a Vogue Italia editorial, which is pretty major in itself. I paired it with our buttery soft Level 99 jeans, which are more affordable than really pricey denim brands but are truly great (the same? better?) quality. The perfect middle ground of affordability and long time wearability.
This dress is perfect if: (a) You have hips (b) You want to look like you have hips. I fall into the latter –look at the (albeit mini) hourglass shape it gives me. It’s a nice thick fabric too, perfect for the office or when you need to look professional but not boring.
This is what I wore on the day of our launch, thus the “birth” day glasses. This sweater you guys –THIS SWEATER! I love everything about it and it’s one of those that you can tell you’ll have for a million years because it’s not at all shitty. And this is the perfect work skirt — it has both stretch and structure so you’ll be comfortable without looking too comfortable. The Pajamajeans of skirts, if you will.
Hope you enjoyed my recent looks! Back to packing orders…
