Inspired by the era of The Beatles (pre-breakup), Amy Smilovic added a 90s twist to her fall collection for Tibi. Rich textures in deep, dark colors like emerald green, cobalt blue, and burgundy took shape in structured coats, cropped menswear suits, slouchy sweaters, turtlenecks layered under dresses, and pencil skirts. Dresses and blouses in cream fabrics and delicate bird prints added femininity and grace. The makeup and hair was strong but effortless with teased ponytails, full brows, dewy cheeks, matte lips and opaque white nails. All in all, it was just how we like it: understated, simple, and fabulous.
Today we’re sharing a little pre-Valentine’s Day love with these sweet DIY heart-shaped bokeh photographs from Karen of Globetrotter Diaires (who also happens to be my wonderful little sister)! Creating heart-shaped blurs is something I’ve been dying to try after admiring so many similar images floating around the internet. If you’re interested in the simple how-to, head over to Karen’s blog for the full tutorial . . .

Inspired by English tailoring and Indian textile, Marcus Wainwright and David Neville artfully carried out next season’s recurring theme of mixing patterns, colors, and textures into their fall collection for Rag & Bone. Asymmetrical skirts, pants, sweater dresses, vests, and outerwear, in the form of prints, fur, leather, jacquard and herringbone, were layered to perfection. I’m especially digging the exaggerated leather epaulets and leather trimmed blanket coats!
We’re completely charmed by Bernadette Pascua‘s pencil and watercolor illustrations. Her work has been published in numerous magazines such as W, Vogue, and Glamour and soon, she will be launching an online shop selling her prints. I, for one, can’t wait to finally adorn one of my walls with her work. But in the meantime, I’ll continue to be inspired by her beautiful blog, Decade Diary . . .
