This week we’re taking over Bauble Bar‘s Buried Bauble . . . ANIMAL STYLE! In case you don’t already know the deal, let us explain: every Friday at 11am EST, Bauble Bar secretly marks an item down to $10. The only catch is, you’ll have to search for it. To make things easier, you can sign up to receive a clue via email, or let the creatures in the photos below help guide you on your hunt. And to top it all off, this Friday we’ve hand selected a total of four affordable baubles to find, so good luck scavenging!
I did not know it was possible to love a designer as much as I love Ulyana Sergeenko. After her debut collection, which had my jaw to the floor, she has produced another extraordinary collection for spring. Not only is she an incredibly talented designer, Ulyana is also a photographer, fashion editor, and street style darling – she wears many hats, literally and figuratively! Her retro and feminine style is perfect for the vintage enthusiast in all of us. I think I want to start a Ulyana fan club. Who’s with me?
Honestly, how enchanting was Dolce & Gabbana‘s ode to Sicily in their fall collection? Velvet capes and lace dresses were accented by glorious Baroque-inspired accessories. The highlight for me was the cornucopia of ornate tiaras adorned with rhinestones, pearls, and the most darling little ceramic roses. It’s a DIY that is easily mastered with the right supplies, so when in Rome . . .
A crumbling and deteriorating 18th-century flat in the middle of Barcelona has found new life in the hands of architect Benedetta Tagliabue. Tagliabue has allowed the history and original structure of the house to inspire her designs without creating a single sketch or model. Most of the rooms in the house are situated around a center patio which creates plenty of natural light. The diagonal paths of colorful Andalusian tile throughout each room (see baldosa hidráulica) are an interpretation of the suns rays . And during the remodeling process, beautiful 18th century decorative murals were discovered after peeling away some of the walls. I can see how the architect let the house speak for itself. It’s truly a treasure!
Charlotte Taylor‘s Fall 2012 lookbook is wonderfully dark, dreamy, and even a bit cooky. Her innate ability to flawlessly mix bold prints with equally strong colors is magical. Honestly, a mustard and navy bird printed blouse paired with purple and green cauliflower printed pants is so fantastic . . and sotypical of Charlotte Taylor. I especially want the dress with the hood!
