Following up on yesterday’s street style post “Style Right Now: 14 Digital Print Looks,” I pulled together 22 digital print dresses for you. (Actually, a couple of them are long T-shirts, but you could totally wear one as a summer dress if you’re petite, or thrown over a bathing suit.) Of course I won’t actually be wearing any (with red hair and freckles I’ve got enough going on without adding a print) but I really do love the digital print look, especially the landscape-y, photographic ones. I totally adore #1 and #14 is pretty cool, but then again, so is everything she does.
Last week, I put together a gift guide of heart-shaped goodies that you’d actually want (unlike, say, a pink heart-shaped diamond engagement ring) for KEEP (it’s like Pinterest but all shop-able; definitely check out my KEEP collections). I’m porting it over here today for you, since we’re getting pretty close to the big day. Flowers die, sparkly jewelry, cashmere sweaters, edgy tableware, mid-century modern chairs, and vintage Chanel are much more appreciated. Here are 10 heart-shaped Valentine’s Day gifts that even would-be heart haters wouldn’t be able to resist.
If you were feeling inspired by yesterday’s display of street style featuring colorful coats, now’s a good time to buy one. Many coats (and winter clothing in general) are on sale. Plus, at least in Boston, temperatures are rising a tiny bit. Here are 13 coats in pretty hues, from peacock and coral to dusty rose and pinot. And let’s not forget neon yellow and mint.Get shopping.
Selecting the holiday party dresses here was more fun than going shopping for the real thing. The list of designers reads like a Vogue editor’s Fashion Week to-do list. There are 42 different designers represented here, each dress more fun than the next. Probably you won’t be able to actually buy many of these, thanks to the sky high prices, but still, they are divine.
If I were going to a holiday party, and I could wear any of them (and this is in dreamland, where I have the perfect body to match my bottomless wallet), I think I’d opt for the Rachel Roy or Marc Jacobs, though I do also love the drape-y metallic Vivienne Westwood and the darling Nina Ricci. I also love the idea of the Isabel Marant with black booties, topped with a leather moto jacket. I suppose it depends on the occasion. They’re all pretty fabulous. Which holiday party dress would you wear to a fancy fete?
So did you mix a tee shirt with a tailored jacket or sequined shirt like I asked you to in my graphic T-shirt street style poston Friday? Are you ready to step up to some edgier, sassier sayings? I think it’s easier to mix these simple graphic T-shirts with sayings on them than the ones with pictures, since these are relatively straightforward. Of course, if you’re self-conscious about people reading your chest, that’s a whole other issues. And, as the T-shirt says, “You’ve got more issues than Vogue.” Pick one, buy it, wear it.

Have you been shopping for fall clothes yet? Like, actually purchased stuff? So far I’ve been pretty much just Pinning and Keeping. I’m thinking of procuring a leather moto jacket, but it’s going to have to be pretty amazing, seeing how they’re so pricey. (There’s no way I’ll be happy with a vegan one.) Here’s some preliminary research of 20 leather biker jackets. It’s not too early; I love the look of pairing moto jackets with shorts (yesterday’s post) and dresses (leather and florals coming soon).

I don’t actually celebrate Valentine’s Day, as it just seems silly to me, but I’m all for love and all for friendship and all for helping you shop for pretty tokens of appreciation. Here are 28 perfect presents to get and give this Valentine’s Day, from $16 to $3,000. (Don’t hesitate to buy for yourself!) xoxo
There’s been a proliferation of fox fashions and furnishings over the last year, and the little orange guy is slowly moving into the mainstream. While West Elm and CB2 haven’t embraced the sly guy just yet (the owl is still the favored creature at most larger chains), Tory Burch plastered fox heads on flats, iPhone cases, and pouches, Jonathan Adler has a white one in his porcelain menagerie, and various foxy home accessories can be found at Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie. Here’s a mix of the best from big names, indie brands, and artisans.
The biggest round-up yet: 72 items in all sorts of lovely shades of green. Lighting, wallpaper, chairs, tables , beds, vases, pillows, rugs, racks, kitchen stuff, and more. I sneaked in a few fashion accessories and jewelry too.
