We have so many wonderful new arrivals but we know it can be a little overwhelming figuring out how to wear everything. Fear not! We created our Fall Look Book to help:
One of our favorite things about Fall is being able to wrap up in comfy layers. But let's be honest, those layers aren't always cute. We've put together a few layered looks for you featuring new knits by Barbara Goldstein and Willows & Wool that still keep the cute factor high!
Berry Assortment (L): Pair the cool Ranunculus Scoop Tee by Flytrap Studios with elbow-length fingerless sleeves from Barbara Goldstein and a hat by Willows & Wool for those in-between days. You know, when New England gives us a chill in the morning and forces our coats off by noon! A coordinated wristlet pouch from Stitch & Rivet completes the look and keeps you organized. (Shirt: $24; Hat: $28; Sleeves: $32; Pouch: $38)
Turquoise For the Win! (R): The Tonoloway hat by Willows & Wool pairs nicely with Barbara Goldstein's cashmere- or silk-lined mittens. Goldstein creates her mittens and gloves from recycled sweaters but the linings make them absolutely luxurious! This is the perfect example of upcycling. Add a Faribault Woolen Mills coffee sleeve, made from fabric remnants at their factories, and you're continuing the upcycling trend. (Hat: $25; Mittens: $54; Coffee Sleeve: $10)
Fall brings a need for layers, but chunky and cozy isn't always the look you're going for. You've got office parties, family get-togethers, reunions, the homecoming game – these events call for you to step up your game! New arrivals in jewelry and accessories are just the thing for a little bling.
On a Blue Note (below):
Gräf & Lantz creates some stunning designs out of German felt in their L.A. workshop. Their bags and accessories are show-stoppingly beautiful. No, really: my sister bought her Chadwick Petite tote last year and says that women have stopped her in restaurants, offices, and airports in Chicago, Dallas, and California to ask her about the bag. No doubt, part of the beauty of their products comes from the richness of the colors of their felt.
This group centers around the indigo blue of their Ink and Oatmeal Chadwick Petite. Keep it organized on the inside with an eyeglasses sleeve and business/credit card wallet made from the same felt. To continue your deep blue feeling, pair it with a hand-dyed indigo silk scarf by Nellie Rose and matching Swarovski crystal earrings and necklace from Hagen Gallery. (Bag: $295; Glasses case: $35; Wallet: $20; Scarf: $132; Necklace: $65; Earrings: $25)
Black and white can be tricky to wear together without looking like Cruella de Vil. We've figured it out for you, though. Mixing jewelry with black and white stones – and a little sparkle! – helps keep the palette balanced without muddling the effect. The drapey scarf from Nellie Rose intertwines the dark and the light together in a beautiful pattern that looks like ink swirled into white paint. Monochrome can be anything but boring!
