Honestly, stripes have never looked so Kule. Nikki Kule is putting her own, preppy American spin on the iconic Parisian marinière. Silhouettes range from a classic fit to a casual boyfriend fit to a modern, longer fit. Oui, oui. Bring on the stripes!
Unless you have been living under a huge rock – rock crystal, that is, you’ve probably been feeling the buzz surrounding Target‘s latest collaboration with accessories designer Eddie Borgo. The 2010 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund runner-up and 2011 CFDA Swarovski Award winner has created a collection of bracelets, earrings, necklaces, pins, belts and handbags – each of which is completely customizable with geometric charms made of semi-precious stones like hematite, pyrite, amethyst, rose quartz, howlite and malachite. To celebrate the launch, I partnered with Target to host an intimate DIY party, in my backyard, for a handful of my girlfriends. Not only were we blown away by the quality of the jewelry, we were all impressed by the variety of components that were available, allowing each of us to uniquely personalize our looks. And I loved seeing how even the most, self-proclaimed “DIY amateur” was able to whip up some of the chicest pieces of the evening.
I’ve been itching to refresh my walls with some color – vibrant colors separated by bold, graphic lines and shapes. And now after admiring these polychromatic walls, I’m motivated to finally take out the painter’s tape and make a trip to the paint store.
Located on the sandy shore of Cabarita Beach, in Australia’s New South Wales, is what might be one of the most stunning boutique hotels in the world. For someone who is obsessed with indigos and blues, I’m partial. But I think anyone in their right mind would agree that interior designer Anna Spiro hit it out of the park, alongside owners Elisha and Siobhan Bickle, with the redesign of the 1960s motel. The juxtaposition of European luxury and Australian casualness is perfected with the use of upholstered walls, mixed indigo-hued textiles, gallery walls, and a bevy of antique furniture. Australia . . . whose coming with me?!
