Raspberry feeling

9/19/11



Forever 21 blouse/vest/headband/necklace, Kasil 'Artisan' chambray pants, Guess sandals, Melie Bianco 'Gigi' crossbody, Michael Kors watch

This weekend I hopped on over to DTLA to preview some of the bags from the fall collection at Melie Bianco. Everything was so put-together and ready for the upcoming season. I had never come across Melie Bianco until I received a bag from LuLu's.com and I kid you not, every single day I wear the 'Drew' tote, I get approached about where I got it from. So the lovely ladies at Melie Bianco offered my readers 15% off their entire purchase with the discount code "FROMTHEBLOCK."

I'm still really stuck on button-up blouses (and if you can't already tell, the same goes for the braided headband) and I'm trying to find ways to integrate them into fall, especially with ones that pop with bright colors like this berry-glazed sheer blouse from Forever 21. These "lazy" pants, I like to call them, from Kasil, were perfect for adding that touch of fall with that lax paperboy feel...

Not too sure what happened to the Bloggers' Wardrobe contest, but I want to say thanks to everyone who voted! Some people told me I was rounded into the top 20 but I don't even know how they know that, haha. On the other hand, if you've got some time, please vote in the Chictopia Influential Blogger Awards! They're sending one person to NYFW in the winter, and I would love to go back next season to document FW :). Anyway, thanks for the support, guys - I really, really appreciate it.

Sending happy vibes this week with much gratitude... happy Monday! x

The blouse is such a pretty color on you, girl! And Melie Bianco always has such a lovely collection of purses.

p.s. An email was sent out last week about the Bloggers Wardrobe placing. :)

Laura said...

Just one word to say: Perfect!!

thereafterish said...

You should stay "stuck" on button-ups/button-downs. They're such a great look for all body types. I love them for me, personally, because I got big boobs, and they look awesome under a button-down.

It's easy to take these pieces into fall, but also wear them with short skirts as a breezy alternative to the binding tanks you see in summer and spring.

LOVE THIS.

I wanted to compete in the Bloggers Wardrobe contest, but I'm not influential at all. LOL. So I'll definitely vote for you in the Chictopia contest.

Angela Sim said...

Those "lazy" pants... I really like how they look, because they don't look too lazy with the subtle pleats, if my eyes don't deceive me.

I want the bag that has my name on it ("Angela Large Lock And Key Bag"), haha! It looks great in turquoise.

I hope you win that trip to NYFW! I really can't imagine you NOT winning, though.
