Apparently, Bucking IS the Trend

Many brands are having horsey moments, and the house of Chloé seems to be leading the trend. Their collection is a “bit” whimsical and I really think it’s cute.

Without shame, they’ve covered entire outfits with rearing horse embroidery.  My favorite item of the collection has to be the Chloe Bomber Jacket; 70’s inspired and indulgently “little-girly”. I normally don’t dig velvet (reminds me of the monstrosity I called my senior prom dress), but this just looks fun to wear. At $2750, the price tag is out of reach for normal girls like me, but maybe someday I can buy it off price at an outlet ;).

I also love the bags that they have to match this collection;

which (unlike the clothing) will last more than one season. For horsey people like me, these bags will last a lifetime.

The simple and elegant American brand Derek Lam, has captured equestrian eyes with this amazing dress.  It features a simple cap sleeve suede top, with an elegant horse appliqué on the midi length skirt. I would wear this all day every day! It’s another high ticket item, at $2650. I’m searching for lookalikes for less money,; I’ll post updates if/when I find any. dereklamskirtneimanmarcusDerekLamCapsleevesuedehorseskirtdress

Cashmere, leather and fur, oh my!

I know that the RTW Spring 2014 shows just wrapped, however, I’m still trying to process RTW Fall 2013. I absolutely LOVE fall/winter clothes and just melt at the sight of an amazing cashmere wrap. This fall, there are almost too many luscious looks to list, however, I’m going to give it my best shot.

Texture upon texture upon texture.  Wovens with knits, plaids with stripes and sparkles on fur. This is truly an equal opportunity fall fashion season, and I LOVE it. My challenge is finding believable knock offs because I can’t even imagine the price tags on some of these pieces.

Moncler deserves a slideshow all its own. Absolutely sumptuous….

Now all I need is to move to the Arctic Circle so I can justify some of these pieces.
