Orange Crush

Even with the intense August heat upon us, summer’s floral rompers, boho tunics and barely there tanks already seem stale and dated. They solemnly hang on tangled sale racks looking lonely next to the shiny new fall merchandise. But alas – fall is far far away. So bypass the trendy markdowns and invest in a real PIECE!

This brilliant Apiece Apart dress is on sale. It reminds me of something Julianne Moore’s character would wear in the movie, A Single Man. A glamorous, early sixties gown in impeccable blood orange textured silk. Pile on vintage Bakelite bangles and a smart belt. And with the right layers it can easily take you into fall where long dresses are making a major comeback. Buy now and wear FOREVER. Click for details.

A Late Summer Look

Right about now you’re getting that flutter in your stomach about fall shopping. The August fashion books are featuring woolly sweaters, tailored blazersĀ  and luxe layers, and you are lusting over every piece that hints at the crisp autumn ahead. Then you step outside and are slapped in the face with a dense and hot humidity. Yes my dears, fall is so close, yet so very far. So relish in the summer sun and invest in some major SALE pieces that you can wear NOW and LATER.

Take Jenni Kayne’s Sequin Leather Top pictured below. The matte leather sequin are perfect for day or night. Pair with boyfriend cargo shorts NOW (like the Surface to Air pair pictured below) and LATER when fall finally arrives, layer under a fluid blazer or a chunky cashmere cardigan.

Girl Crush: Nora Kirkpatrick

Keyboards are the new messenger bags.

Nora Kirkpatrick is 1/12th the indie, psychedelic, folk group, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros. They are a traveling band of hipster gypsies and their happy, eclectic sound is intoxicating. Nora plays the keyboard, accordion and the occasional tambourine. Crush! At a recent live show, she totally shined in a simple baby blue vintage romper with her long blond hair in a middle part. At Coachella she was snapped in another sweet vintage number. I just love her chic Marsha Brady style. I can totally see her jamming in AKA’s floral romper or Rag & Bone’s stam romper.
