Rag And Bone Women’s line
Rag and Bone is synonymous with american design and stylish looks. This Fall/Winter season they have the most coveted jackets, denim and boots which you can see on the first picture. Also for Spring 2012 they are introducing a beautiful navy blue and kelly green to their color palette. On the second picture you can see my favorite looks for Spring 12, they are nautical, preppy and super classic. You can't go wrong with stripes and these colors go great together.

I stumbled upon Lemlem this weekend and the one thing that caught my eyes was the contrast between the intense and rich colors and the use of crisp, clean whites. These scarves are light weight for the summer but I can see them been warm enough to hold you over fall or even winter. Lemlem is know for their handwoven cottons and merino wool, the collection includes dresses, shirts, skirts and kid's clothing. To view the entire collection, click here.
Bleulab Reversible Jeans
Just two days ago I came across Bleulab, a brand that makes a line of denim with a two-way jean fabric that will take you from day to night with a fully reversible look, YES... I said reversible jeans! now this is what I call innovation. Carl Jones the creator of the reversible denim collection perfected the combination of fashion and function and offers the option of getting two completely different looks for the price of one. The colors and washes look amazing and they fabric has some stretch so it hugs the body just the right way. I am in love with the idea of reversible jeans and I am going to check them out next time I visit the denim shop in American Rag. Click here to see the full Fall 2011 and upcoming Spring 2012 line, I MUST try them out.

Heidi Merrick has evolved into such a edgy and sophisticated brand while keeping it fun. I like how Fall 2011 shaped up and I am excited to try on these piece out sometime soon.

Tibi: Something Blue
Because it's been so long since I wrote about fashion I thought this will be a great way to start. Here are my top three favorite looks from Tibi, a brand created in Hong Kong and relocated to New York City after a few years of success, they now have a beautiful flagship store in Soho and their line of women's clothing is available worldwide.
If you look at the collection you can tell the creator, Amy Smilovic has a clear vision on women's needs, details and quality. I love her bold use of color and her casual yet tailored looks. I am loving this bright blue color for Spring 11. For more on Tibi click here.
Thom Browne Spring Summer 2011
I need to admit that I am obsessed with the Spring Summer 2011 line of womens wear from Thom Browne. It is proper, thoughtful and filled with beautiful feminine details. The perfectly tailored looks on these images are traditional styles with a delicate touch of modern living. The bags on the top images go perfectly with the styling of this line. These are just a small portion of Thom's line, for more click here.
Wedge Ankle Boots Of The Season
This is exactly what has been in my mind all week. I'm madly in love with wedges and ankle boots so why not put them together and make for a fantastic new pair of shoes? I have selected a variety of styles so you can all pick one you love. The Pedder Red straped boots on the top left corner are made with beautiful tan leather and the wedge has a beautiful leather and wood inlay detail. The wedge construction is out there and maybe too progressive but the neutral color makes it easier to wear, they are $180 USD.
The blue suede desert boots on the top right are from Carvela at Kurt Geiger in London and they are about $200 USD, I am in love with the lugs on these booties. The brogue wedge boots on the bottom left corner are from River Island, a great place for affordable fashion, these beauties are only $54 USD, and last but not least the camel suede boots on the bottom right are from Zara in Milan for $112 USD, the rubber wedge makes them look more casual and the contrast stitching ...
Kimberly Orvitz is my new favorite designer from Los Angeles. Her line is very futuristic and super progresive. Her collection is both distressed and constructed, very sexy but with added masculine tailoring. Her line is filled with unusual combinations and beautiful details. These are not your every day clothes but they are sure to be a great item for a special occasion. Kimberly's work is eye catching to say the least. Check out her entire collection here.
Brooklyn based designer Mina Stone is gaining more popularity every day. Her collection includes beautiful draping fabrics and super feminine dresses guaranteed to give you a look to remember at your next party. I love the choice of rich colors, they are unique colors and yet they are very easy to wear. Her specialty is showcasing how fabrics can drape perfectly on a person's body by taking advantage of their properties to the fullest. If you want to see more of Mina's work click here.

If you are going out surfing this weekend, and plan to be showing your best tricks, why not show them in style?
Here are my two favorite pieces from Loeffler Randall's Spring 2009 collection. Biker inspired jackets are still a strong trend, this one uses silver zippers to highlight the style. Jumpers are just starting to pick up as a style. I love women in jumpers but be sure to try them out before you buy them, not all jumpers are for everyone. This Loeffler Randall jumper has a boned bodice, side pockets and a leather belt, I haven't seen it in person but this looks like a winner in my book. Check these and more of Loeffler Randall here.
Spring 2010 is just around the corner, so if you are not ready for swimsuit shopping yet at least you can check out the new line from Rachel Pally. Here are my favorite one but I recommend you visit her website here for more dresses and tops. Enjoy!
I came across Lauren Kovin this week and wanted to share her work with you. These pictures are not from her latest collection but I still found them really creative and exciting. These are pieces from her 2009 Spring Summer collection. They are made with lightweight fabrics and can be worn differently depending on your style. The one on the top has extra long sleeves that can be rolled up and wrapped around the body to give it an unique and more stylish look. The blue dress on the bottom is also a pretty piece with a front pocket and an open back. I like the way the fabric gathers and falls on the body, the colors are really captivating. All these beautiful pictures are by Julie Miller. For more info on Lauren's line click here.
