alice + olivia RST2011

well now that summer has been going on for a week...all the 2011 resort wear is coming out! resort is actually a fashion season - situated right between fall/winter and spring - which seems to often be overlooked! this year's alice + olivia's resort collection is bright and wonderfully cheery! designed by Stacey Bendet, the pieces are reminiscent of the sixties and as she calls them herself, very "Jackie O". whether or not you're feeling a retro vibe, these pieces are twists on timeless shapes and i cannot wait to get my hands on them!

such a fun take on a serious silhouette this bumble-bee yellow dress is irresistible!

green, green, GREEN! A + O has managed to work a lovely pallet of lime to sage green into their latest collection!

here's to more green! love, love, love the faux fur with the skirt!

and lastly as a tribute to my love of all things retro, this GREEN trapeze tunic is my ultimate fav in this collection. also, did i mention the SHOES that these models have on. TO DIE FOR.

this weekend i was fortunate enough to get a sneak peak of the fall 2010 collection of Tucker by Gaby Basora. this flowing bohemian collection is perfect for southern california's glorious fall weather. the fall collection is inspired by french author, marguerite duras.

here are some shots from the lookbook featuring liu wen!

i love the ankle boots with stockings and all these fall previews are making me long for the windy days of november!

gaby basora has also been chosen the next designer for Target's Go International series! it appears as though the looks are due in mid-summer! can't wait!

e&j fall + lf lovers

after pouring over tons of elizabeth and james fall 2010 preview collection, i have found some MUST haves.

ANYTHING long, baggy, black and knit is an instant favorite of mine, so this striped sweater is going to find it's way into my closet asap!

also, the pea green frock is all the rage for this fall - the perfect color for those out there with red hair!

i am loving the return of puffy shoulders too! i am so excited to know that last year's shoulder poofs were not a silly purchase!

all the olive green is AMAZING! this retro green does wonders for hazel eyes too!

as the sun has been peaking out recently, i have been reminded that it is summer and i need to get myself in the swing of dressing like an ethereal princess! these looks are the ultimate summer-time dress code, thanks to LF and their fantastic stylists!

lace princesses, beautiful greenery - makes me want to take a trip up to red rock in the santa barbara mountains ASAP!

ah, the beach. love love love the retro shorts + hat. my hat collection is growing...and growing due to my preoccupation with preventing wrinkles so ill have to post some hat snapshots asap!

off to TAIKO with the parents! xx
