Rag&Bone: the Ballet Flat

Are you ready to go to OZ?? How cute would these red suede flats be with a little denim summer dress? SO CUTE!! These lovely shoes definitely look like they would take you on a fantastic adventure. I love the perforated detailing. Best of all they are just in time for you to wear them to Wicked. The musical starts tomorrow, why not channel Dorothy this weekend?

Helmut Lang Pre-Fall Delivery 11

Fabulous news, not only did we receive some to-die-for pieces from Helmut Lang, but it has been so cold this May that you can actually wear them now, instead of waiting for September. (There has to be some upside to this weather and I'll be damned if it isn't fashion.)

Leather, oh the leather. A short jacket with asymmetrical zipper and leather sleeves. What I love about transitional deliveries is they are really for all seasons. This is a light weight jacket perfect over dresses or with jeans. Paired with a Helmut Lang rust print asymmetrical tunic and R13 skinny jeans worn throughout.

Next a beautiful Baby Alpaca blend sweater with the most interesting knit. In true Helmut fashion, this piece is longer in the front and shorter in the back.

The Show Stopper Trench with Leather Detailing. WOW as we shot these photos we couldn't help but drool. This is the perfect trench with just the right amount of edge and sophistication. Under the trench is a soft and sexy tank with random Leather Sequin detail. The back is stunning and perfect for a summer date.

Last is the bronze jersey dress that drapes so beautifully. Comfort+Gorgeous Draping+Travel Piece+all around greatness = Jersey dresses.

We have the most flattering cat eye glasses you have ever seen. The ones that sold oh so quickly are back in black. Fabulous tortoise oversized square frames - very glam.

Phillip Lim: the Summer Delivery

Dear Phillip Lim,

Thank you.

Love, the girls at Misch

We love the peplum detail on the jacket and the shirt, and all the different ways we can think of to style them up!

This stunning silk tank dress can be your reward if you, like our model here, have legs for miles and a body to kill for. Sheer back panel helps remind the people behind you that there is such thing as both sexy and sophisticated.

Nothing like a little jumpsuit in warmer weather, wouldn't you say? Done very well by the Limmer: a very flattering cut and a gorgeous colour.

These shorts, featuring the same knot front detail as the jumpsuit, are also the same very flattering cut as the jumpsuit. The silk top detail is absolutely stunning, a gorgeous Art Deco style print, and I bet it would match with absolutely anything.

Fashionista's Manifesto

I for one KNOW that I will be getting some sun, sooner or later, somehow, somewhere, because I NEED some. And so do you.

I plan on being dressed beautifully; I plan on maxing out my enjoyment of this thing called sun, because well, my sanity needs to make the most of it.

Let's talk about clothes baby, let's talk about clothes.

Rag&Bone: the Summer Delivery

When we bought this dress, our thoughts were: OMG THIS IS PERFECT. And it pretty much is. Cute for daytime, little floral printed cotton cap sleeve shirtdress, at a reasonable price point, how can you resist?

ps. Carven sandals: I love you.

Cotton racerback trapeze dress: amazing for when you hate clingy things in the heat, or just hate clingy things period. This is also from the Rag&Bone Shirt collection, which means the price point is trés easy to justify!

We love the Great Gastbsy-ness of this little number, and talk about flirty! We get a lot of requests for dresses in this colour palette and they are always sold out by the time the warm weather really gets in full swing!!

If you had to come in and try dresses, this could be your perfect trifecta.

From left to right: Helmut Lang relic dress with forte.forte floral necklace, Isabel Marant printed Lotta dress, and the Isabel Marant strapless Lido dress from the runway.

Rag&Bone: the Keesley top

Argghhh, I LOVE this! Such pretty colours, and the silk/cotton combo sheer beauty of it all! Plus, I have always been a fan of this kind cut with the lower at the sides, hip skimming business...

Shoppin' the Resort Sale the Way it Should Be

I always wished you could go online and somehow digitally shop the rack itself. So far, no dice, but here are pictures of some of my favourite items from the Resort Sale on the rack, along with a shot of them on the model.

3.1 Phillip Lim linen cargo dress, in a COLOUR! Day dresses: not just for ladies who lunch, also good for regular ladies who just eat lunch. You'll want some colour when the sun shines, trust me.

Okay, it's true, no shot of this on a model, but this little no-brainer wardrobe staple: the grey cardigan, in the BEST quality of merino wool - should never have made it to sale!

This Rag&Bone cotton 'Dinner Jacket' we think goes as well into late Spring as it does into early Fall. A very versatile jacket! It ran pretty small to size though, so some girls got really rattled, but not you, because you don't care like silly little things like that do you?

This BOY by Band of Outsiders blazer is called the "Schoolboy Cut', and is probably one of our most popular fits from them. You could style it preppy the way we did below: something kinda girly like the mini-polka dot dress with it is so great! You could also throw on the black R13's and a white tank with an edgier shoe and give it a rebellious vibe if you wanted a whole different thing.

We love this dress from 3.1 Phillip Lim! Very rare, but done beautifully here: covered skin = super-sexy. Still here in a size 0 and a size 2, perhaps it was meant for you?

This silky trench dress from Rag&Bone doubles pretty well as a kind-of cardigan-meets-jacket-meets-fabulous wardrobe item. One pair of pants and tank never did so much work if you had one pair of flats, one pair of heels, this, and a black linen cardigan. Weekend in Palm Springs? Consider yourself set.

Ok, this is from now on to be called: the Vancouver jacket. Waterproof wool? That's what I'm talking about! Long enough to be worn as a jacket, blazer details that mean you don't have to take it off if you don't want to. Versatile? I think so, thankyouverymuch. On sale? INSANE.

Outfit of the Day

Mia and I have decided, in honour of today's sunshine and our bare legs, that today's Outfit of the Day has to be this amazing jumpsuit from Forte.Forte, which, due to monsoon season in the rainforest (February, March, April), has gone completely overlooked.
