the look for october 2012

the daily deluge of boxes has left us with some great looks for right now! remember, we ordered all these items last march, june, and august! so the surprise is on us, as well as you, when we open the boxes and pull out the goods!

our desigual order was placed at the fall/winter stylemax, held in chicago this past march. emily and I are really happy with the dresses and tops we ordered — plus there’s a fall coat in black, a colorful winter jacket, a fabulous party dress, and socks and tights as well!

I am love love loving this dress, which comes in two colors: the brown and purple modeled by brenda is really wonderful.


brenda flipped over this sweater dress by aryeh, which emily and I ordered in june in livonia at an apparel show. these dresses have been the big sellers the past few weeks. they are comfortable and warm and really really fun!

Aryeh Sweater Dresses

ally looks A+dorable in yumi’s sheer white and black 3/4 sleeve blouse featuring with vintage buttons, a white bow tie, and the cute mustaches and bows print. it’s a perfect match with knitted dove’s grey and black cotton knit skirt.

Fly London and Desigual

fly london’s gold frez vintage shoe is a winner with the desigual party dress — a great outfit for holiday 2012! can you believe we had to think about that months ago?! well, emily and I are always thinking ahead on what’s going to rock your world!

here’s the desigual dress I’m lovin’, with ally wearing it in the black and green version with otbt’s black slouch boot.


another hit from aryeh — rusched pockets on this sleeveless turtleneck comes in two colorways of this circle pattern. we’ve got sheer long sleeve tops to wear underneath. great look. especially with otbt’s taupe suede boot!
