Pretty Feet

It almost feels like spring...almost. While we await it's return, why not adorn our feet with one (or all) of these beauties from Melissa Shoes. I don't know about you ladies, but I've had enough of winter boots, and chunky socks; my feet are screaming to be free! I can't wait to slip on the "Harmonic Flip Flops"... LOVE them!

Introducing...House Of Harlow!!!

We're all huge fans of Nicole Richie's style, which was one of the main reasons Winter Kate was originally introduced into the store, and because our love affair with her doesn't end with her clothing, we've decided to bring her jewellery line, House of Harlow, to you too!!!

House of Harlow, named after Richie's daughter, launched in 2009 out of her love and appreciation of fashion, particularly of the "bohemian chic" era of the '60s and '70s. Below is a little sampling of the pieces we received:

More AGs!!!

We are ALWAYS excited when a box of AG jeans comes through our doors; this time is no exception!!! Most of our "faithful" devotees know our search for another great denim line was an extensive one with many "rules," many of which were self imposed. We have found AG to be the perfect fit for us. The yummy (dreamy delicious in some cases) fabrics, color choices, and the many cuts available are all so incredibly flattering! Who wouldn't want an instant "bum lift," or look like they have legs for days???

The new additions to our AG family are "The Ballad," which is a skinny boot cut in Frey and Super Black, "The Premiere Cuff Roll Up" in White, and "The Stilt" in Dark Night. If you haven't tried them yet, now's your chance!!!

You'll be a convert...I swear!!!

Ella Moss!!!

We just opened a small, but fun grouping of Ella Moss. The "Marina Split Neck" would be great paired with a long black skirt, flip flops, and a big floppy hat!!! Easy dressing for a fun holiday, shopping, or meeting the girls for lunch. Effortless dressing, don't we all love that???
Marina Split Neck Top in Black

The "Harbor Crop Top" in Grey is super easy, pop it on over a little tank (or not, for those more daring.............Jerd???) Pair this with shorts and flip flops for an easy summer look. Who would've thought it would be that easy to look so cool?!? Thanks Ella!!!

What's Mabel Wearing?

It can be easy to get stuck in our fashion routines. We all have our "go to" pieces, but lets be honest, sometimes we get stuck in a rut. Mabel is spicing things up this week with a loose knit sweater from Charlotte Tarantola and a sequin Chan Luu bra... very vava voom!

Fab cardigans and dresses have just arrived from Charlotte Tarantola...yay!!! These fun and cheery pieces will help make the cold weather seem a bit more bearable...just think, in a few short weeks (maybe months) we'll be able to wear these cardis with shorts, and the dresses with flip flops!!!

Just In...

Stilt in Highlighter Blue

OMG!!! Don't you just love these?!? Not only is the colour amazing, but they're also incredibly comfy! Wear these with your favourite Nation tee, Chan Luu scarf, and flats for a casual day running around town, or with MY fave top, the "Fanny," loads of jewels, and super cute wedges for a dressed up look. Hurry in, these will not last!!!

*Also received in Neon Orange.

Along with the "Roll Up" shorts from 7FAM, we also received some "Kimmie" bootcuts! The Kimmie jeans are fairly dark with a bit of distressing. These would be ideal paired with a basic white tee, scarf, leather jacket, and flats...such a great casual look! This kind of fit flatters and accentuates a curvy shape rather nicely!!!

Get your boots out ladies, bootcut is here to stay!


Linea Pelle

Linea Pelle established itself as "the premiere belt company offering the very best in casual luxury." Although best known for their belts, they also design chic casual handbags and small leather goods, which have become all the rage among Hollywood, stylists, and fashionistas.

What's Mabel Wearing???

Mabel's going casual-chic this week! She's wearing a Joie "Shasta" top, JK necklaces, and a new printed Chan Luu scarf. This outfit would look great paired with skinny jeans, and tall black boots. Mabel's favourites are the 7FAM black "Crop and Roll" pants and Ash "Dune" booties.


Paige's Pick: Funktional "Doppler Tank"

The pick today is the Funktional "Doppler Tank." This top is a great multi-purpose, long-term investment piece. It can be used either casually or dressy...great for summer and the office, etc.

The first outfit is a great look for the office, with an Autumn Cashmere basic cardigan and Vince "Slim Zip" dress pants. The look is pulled together professionally and appropriately for a typical  work day. To complete the outfit, a Britta necklace was added. Adding a watch, and a variety of bracelets to the mix is also a good idea.

The second outfit I put together is for when office hours are over, and it's time to enjoy the weekend!!! This is where the "long-term investment" part comes into play; the "Doppler Tank" looks fantastic with a pair of white skinny 7FAM jeans. I love this look, and all I had to do was switch up the pants and take off the cardigan.  The addition of the white pants makes this look great for dinner and drinks!

More From 7FAM

Roll Up Short in OBDK

Slim Straight Pant in Clean White

Just in from 7FAM are the "Roll Up Shorts" and "Slim Straight Pants." If you want to get a head start on your Spring/Summer wardrobe, then you need to make room for both of these!!! Super comfy and versatile, you won't regret this purchase...promise.


Tie Breaker Shirt in Skydome and Travel Companion Sweater in Heather Grey

Chaser Tank in Plume and Navy

New stock just keeps pouring in, and with the deep freeze we've been getting, we could all use a little pick-me-up. The "Chaser Tanks" and "Tie Breaker Tee" are both great basics. These striped beauties would look fantastic paired with any one of the C&C maxi skirts. The "Travel Companion Sweater" is genius. It can either be worn as a cardi, or the buttons on the sleeves can be undone transforming it  into a shawl! The best part though, is that like many of the pieces from Line, it is made of super soft cashmere.

Paige's Pick: "Tie-dye" C&C Maxi Skirt

This week's pick focuses on the "Maxi" skirt, and for all of you who think you are too short to wear one, what I'm about to say is about to knock your socks off: you're actually not too short! This was news to me recently as well, so I completely understand if you're in shock at the moment, but try to focus and read so I can show all you vertically challenged gals out there how exactly to pull off this look as if you were a 6"9 supermodel.

This first look is for a casual summer/vacation day where you're out shopping, or taking a walk along the beach. This look is great because it's comfortable and easy! Not only will it make a great bathing suit cover-up, but the best part is that this look gives lots of options for foot wear: if you're tall, you can pair this with gladiator sandals, but if you're on the shorter side, then all you have to do is add a pair of wedge sandals. This look came together by combining a C&C "Tie-dye" maxi skirt with the "Margo" tee from Joie along with necklaces from both Claudia and Karyn Chopik. To round out this look, try adding brown or black leather wrapped Chan Luu bracelets to bring out the outfit's "organic" feel.

This look is for an evening out in the summer, or for a hot date while on vacation. This looks great on everyone, but is particulary flattering for the shorter ladies because the top is fitted preventing one from getting lost in the fabric. Again, add wedges or flats to complete this look. This outfit is assembled with a James Perse black tank, a C&C "Tie-dye" maxi skirt, and a combination of Karyn Chopik and JK necklaces.

Time to put back on the socks and do some shopping!

Jerd's Corner: How to Wear Maxi Skirts

One of my favorite summer staples is the "Maxi Skirt" for soooo many reasons:
1. Super comfortable: loose and flowy...feels like you're wearing "nothing"
2. Effortless: Just throw it on, and you instantly look summer appropriate
3. Covenient: If you (accidentally) forget to shave your legs, or apply too much self-tanner, you're still safe (ok, let's be honest, this is my MAIN reason...lol)
The maxi skirt might be a new look for you, or if you need some different ideas on how to wear your existing skirts, I've devised four distinct "looks" that will literally take you from the beach to the party.
1. The "City Girl" Maxi: The basis of this outfit surrounds a silk maxi skirt; it is a dressier rather than casual look. Since the skirt is rather full, all three ladies below added structure to their maxis either by layering their tops, or by tucking them in. This prevents the maxi from looking too casual, and makes it more city appropriate. I personally LOVE the idea of incorporating denim to toughen up the look a bit. Always consider footwear options; I would pair this with either flat gladiators or wedges. Save the flip flops for our next look. 

2. The "Beach Babe" Maxi: Where's the sand? Cotton skirts from C&C and James Perse are perfect for any tropical destination, or backyard barbeque. Everything about this look screams casual, so pair the Maxi with your favorite tee...especially ones from Nation Ltd. Grab your shades and flip flops, but don't forget that stash of bangles and wooden necklaces either.

 3. The No-Brainer Maxi: While doing my research, yes blogging is academic, I noticed every "it-girl" in LA was pictured in this look. If you couldn't be bothered to think "outside the box," or if you just want a fail proof outfit...this is it. Start with your black Splendid or James Perse maxi skirt, add your favorite white tee, and top it off with a black leather jacket. Finish the look off with flip flops, sunnies, and your favorite Balenciaga.

4. "Dressy" Maxi: Probably the most genius idea for formalwear I've seen in a long time! I love how simple and comfy this is while still being dressy. Invest in a quality silk maxi, and it will literally take you from day to night!

Well that's all I have ladies.

Until next time,


Feeling like your wardrobe could use a little pick me up? We just received two great tops from Funktional. This brand is always doing something fun and unexpected! My favorite piece is the "Doppler Tank." The drapey cut is super feminine; definitely a great top for a girl's night out.

Back By Popular Demand

They're back, the "Skinny Crop and Roll" in Black!!! Perfect daytime and/or nighttime, these sold out almost immediately the last time we received them. Throw them on with a basic tee and flats while running around town doing errands, or with a silky top and sky-high platforms if you've got something more interesting planned!!! Seriously, these will fly off the shelves, so if you're at all interested, please come in...you've been warned!


Ella Moss

Ella Moss makes great tops, both casual and pretty. I love the "Horizontal Ruffle Front Tank;" it's girlie without being too frilly, or over the top. The subtle snake print lends an air of edginess to the shirt...throw it on under a black leather jacket, or boyfriend blazer, a pair of coloured denim, and some to-die-for boots, and you've got the perfect outfit for a night on the town!

Double Duty From Ella Moss

Valencia Top in Black

Just in from Ella Moss: "Valencia Wide Neck Top" in Black. This sweater is one of those perfect "throw on" numbers...fabulous with skinny jeans, boots, and a Chan Luu scarf right now, AND great with a pair of denim cut-offs and flip flops come Summer.

C&C California is BAAACCCKKK.............

We're excited that this brand has both re-invented itself, as well as kept all our fave basics like the racer back tank!!! This season they've done a great maxi skirt to wear with your flip flops and/or wedges. It's an easy piece to incorporate into anyone's wardrobe for that instant, cool bohemian look C&C is known for. Even in the midst of our deep freeze, this skirt gives us a taste of what it would be like to be that "California" girl frolicking on the beaches all day!!! C'mon in, and we can play & pretend we're all there.

What's Mabel Wearing?

Mabel is dreaming of warmer weather in the "Lelia Maxi" dress from Velvet. This dress is perfect for any beach getaway. It will definitely have you channeling your inner boho. To finish off the look, a true hippie girl needs a wrist full of Chan Luu wrap bracelets and Jocelyn Kennedy arm candy.
