So Fresh and So Clean

While I am still working out my must-have wish list for Fall and Winter (and the subsequent lotto win required to purchase said items), I couldn't skip over the crisp collection from Preen Spring 2011. Inspired by a recent trip to Egypt, the monochromatic palette feels like a cool breeze on a hot day. Brought to my attention via The Sartorialist, his photo showcased the detail and movement of this amazing dress... a feature we often miss viewing stills online. Regardless, I had to check out the rest of the collection on style.com.

Perfectly French. Perfect for Fall.

The IRO Fall line is full of style staples that will get you through the upcoming season with easy style. I cannot resist the slouchy harem pants, leather vests, belted blazers and ankle boots. With a raw feel and basic execution, these pieces are effortlessness realized.

Win a Mulberry Bag!

Alexa bag

 Since Alexa Chung began sporting her own "Alexa" bag, Mulberry's fame has made its way back into the arms of the style mavens like Kate Moss and Sienna Miller. And rightfully so. The line has launched itself back onto the main fashion scene with designs in leopard prints, camel hair, satchel and cross body styles that are all the rage right now. Check out this amazing contest that Mulberry is currently promoting. By simply providing the necessary information (and a few prayers), you will be entered in to win an invite to the Mulberry party for Fashion Week. Party amongst the beautiful and uber-stylish on the rooftop of Soho House New York and dance to the beats of DJ Dan Williams. The best part? You also win your choice of an Alexa or Brynmore bag!

With an array of designs to choose from that also include beautiful footwear and versatile accessories like scarves and jewelry, Mulberry is definitely making its way to the top of my "must-have" lists this Fall!

Dress Prep

I'm currently on the search for the perfect rehearsal dinner dress for my upcoming wedding in a few weeks (YIPPEEE!). Needless to say, my short attention span is making it difficult to find the perfect design. I have however, found plenty of beautiful dresses that would be entirely inappropriate for the event in question, but nevertheless, definitely still need to be in my closet. The current offering from Bonadrag contains a multitude of favorites that urge me to take the plunge and purchase.
