These days, I’ve been trading in my skinnies for flares, with the wider the bell the better. My all time favorite pair is still Current/Elliott‘s original Elephant Bells, and a very old pair of JBrand Kats at a close second. Do you guys have a tried and true pair? Oh, and I’m absolutely crazy about these pants – thinking about indigo tie dying my own . . .

The talented Patricia Urquiola has put her stamp on the brand new W Hotel Vieques Island, designing the hotel from top to bottom. Vieques is one of the Spanish Virgin Islands in the southeast coast of Puerto Rico, known for its azure-colored waters and white sands. Lounging in colorfully woven day beds after a day of exploring an unspoiled island would be all kinds of awesome.

We are smitten with Stella McCartney‘s floral ensembles from her Spring 2011 collection, inspired by 18th and 19th century botanical prints. The studies by notable botanists Robert John Thornton and Pierre Joseph Redouté are so incredibly lovely and vibrant that we too were inspired to add a bit of floral flair to our own clothing.You’ll need:
– an old jacket or blazer (we used a vintage army coat)
– iron on transfers for dark clothing
- botanical images (we used images from Redouté)
– a printer
– a pair of scissors
– an iron
I am loving fashion illustrator Coco’s line of large silk scarves. Each scarf in her Forget Me Not collection has been originally hand drawn by Coco and digitally printed in small quantities in Europe. How can you not love anything inspired by Surrealism, esoteric imagery and fairy tales?
