Win This Leather ‘Wanderer’ Tote From Spool No. 72!

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

Leaf through the charm of the Spool No. 72 Holiday Catalog…

Don’t know Spool No. 72? You can start by reading this post I wrote a while back, where I fell in love with a dreamy, green, kimono sweater. In more recent news, Spool still stocks their unique collection in addition to vintage and one-of-a-kind pieces, salvaged from around the globe. Right now, they’re also featuring an amazing selection of picks filed under Twenty For $20 – that’s right; (way) more than twenty items, some originally retailing for upwards of $140!

My fave (obvy) is for sure this roomy, boho-chic, ‘Wanderer’ Leather Tote, (a $158 value) handcrafted of supple Italian leather exclusively for Spool No. 72. In addition to a back outer zip pocket, there are three more inside (one zip, two pouch) and an optional longer strap for transforming your tote into a shoulder bag. I’m personally digging the oh-so-relevant fringe and retro yet functional hardware…you in?

Rachel Comey: Dressing For The Expected

The designer Rachel Comey and her boyfriend, Sean Carmody, are two months away from having their first child, and the mom-to-be is bumping up her wardrobe accordingly. “The maternity trend seems to be not buying any clothes,” Comey says with a laugh. “That excludes the flea market, because it’s been fun to shop and try on shapes that I wouldn’t normally try on now that my body is so different.” Comey, who is known for her flirty prints and cool shoe designs, transformed a thrift shop cat suit into a pair of cool trousers. Day wear has become jumpsuits, overalls and stretchy knits, especially knit dresses paired with a sharp tailored blazer from Ellsworth for a more defined shape. “With my changing body and changing lifestyle, I am also changing my need for clothing to be practical for a woman’s body at any stage,” she says. We are looking forward to see how this new sensibility plays out in Comey’s next collection. Great expectations indeed.

H&M Fashion For The Ultimate Party Look

Tuesday, November 16th, 2010

I realize that this is a ton off stuff, but I felt that it worked best as a collection – indulge me. Amongst the must-have items this season are tuxedos and tailcoats for women (love). “Tailcoats can be worn with a long skirt and a lingerie-inspired top,” says Ann-Sofie Johansson, H&M’s Head of Design. “Or over a feminine dress, or even with jeans and a T-shirt, glammed up with bright red high heels.” Ann-Sofie says that details are key; “Hair accessories add a special twist this winter. I love the sequin and feather accessories, and there’s also a lot of beautiful jewelry.” I would have to say that I wholeheartedly concur.
