This collection has so many of my favorite things and yet it stays simple without being overwhelming. Leather, army green, burgundy, velvet, utility, layers, and relaxed chic hair and makeup. What’s not to love?
I have always been a huge Elizabeth & James fan, but Fall 2012 was a true breakthrough for the brand. Relaxed fits, silk pajamas, fur accents, and sharp tailoring blended together to create a strong collection full of covetable separates and wardrobe necessities. One of my favorite things about the brand is their Twitter presence. The @elizandjames account not only gives an insight into the behind-the-scenes of the brand, but is also a go-to for NYC tips and great new music. In honor of this I have created a little relaxed Friday playlist for you to enjoy. I’ll be listening to it all weekend, and in the spirit of Elizabeth & James, wearing my velvet slippers and fur stole while doing so.
You can check out the playlist on Grooveshark here, and make sure to check out the Elizabeth & James website.
Tommy really delivered this season with a collection full of pieces perfect for a collegiate fall. The standouts for me were the tweeds, and I love how these pieces used elements of repetition while still showcasing small details that made each look unique. The bucket hats, the over the knee boots, the mini skirts; it was all very “Cher Horowitz meets Ivy Style” and I couldn’t be more excited.
