Spring 2017: A Stroll Through the Venice Canals

Posted

Whenever we're craving an escape from the hustle & bustle of everyday routine, we love to explore the beautiful city we call home: Los Angeles. With its many different and diverse neighborhoods, there's always a new, picturesque location to explore that's not too far away. We recently wandered the Venice Canals with photographer Liz Caruso and model Ashleigh for a color story that features our favorite red, black, and white garments of the season. All you need for a Parisienne-chic inspired look is to slip on one of these gorgeous ensembles, and put your hair up in a messy bun!

The Lettie Top from LIKELY puts a twist on the classic black tank top in more ways than one. Its cropped silhouette reveals a subtle peplum hemline that's perfect for pairing with your favorite high-waisted jeans or pants. We love it here styled with our newest obsession - AKA this red leather jacket from Paris-based brand Intuition.

As we mentioned above, the Lettie Top looks great with any high-waisted pants, but we're especially partial to the Zippered Denim Pant by 3.1 Phillip Lim. These pants are anything but ordinary, with their zippered detail down the pant leg's side, overlapping seams, and off-center darting. Top off this look with the IRO Sparkly Pumps, a pair of strappy heels that serve a versatile function in your wardrobe - whether you want to pair it with an edgier look such as this one, or a dress for a more classically feminine look.

A stunning blazer is something that every woman needs in her life, and Alice + Olivia designed the most wonderful white blazer this spring, with long sleeves, an open, buttonless front, and delicate embroidered detailing along the sides. The Jenice Embroidered Side Combo Blazer is available at Bleu by special order.

When you want to add a subtle hint of sexyness to your look, wear a button-up blouse like this Brixa Button-Up Shirt by IRO with buttons undone at the top. Then pair with layered, gold necklaces to highlight the area. 

Bring the styled outfit to completion with the matching Alice + Olivia Marisa Embroidered Shorts, and a heeled sandal, like this tan, bootie-inspired shoe by IRO.

The Delfi Alicia Dress is one of those pieces that shines all on its own - no styling or accessorizing required (although it does look fabulous when accented by a pair of gold, jeweled earrings). We love the slip silhouette, fine pleating, and off-white lacy hemline.

We can't get enough of the Ditsy Floral Lace Top in Ivory by Michelle Mason, and neither could our customers, seeing as it sold out in no time! Worry not, though. We recently re-stocked it, and you can purchase yours now before it's gone in a flash again!

Tuck your lacy, white top into a pair of classic black trousers like the IRO Petterson Wrap Pants. The high-waisted pants have a bow-tie belted closure that accentuates your waistline. We love the idea of styling this look with a pair of red pumps like the IRO Leania Heels and a matching red lip to complete the chic vibes.

Fall Fashion: All About the Sleeve

It's November 16th and the holidays are near! While we wish this was a post about furs and jackets and all of our winter favorites, alas it is not. Because the weather in LA was topping out at about 90 degrees this week, we are still desperately trying to incorporate fall (at least color wise) [...]

Back In Black

Despite the fact that this week's weather forecast includes a 90 degree scorcher, it's pretty safe to assume that fall has officially arrived - i.e. it no longer feels weird to wear over the knee boots out at night because it's at least relatively chilly. Our favorite part of fall's (albeit, brief) appearance? We can finally [...]

How to Dress For "Fall" in Los Angeles

While we imagine that the rest of the country is snapchatting falling leaves, sipping spice lattes, and donning the over the knee boot de rigueur, October in LA means trying to convince ourselves that maybe, at some point in the day, if the air conditioning is on, it could get cold enough to wear that [...]
