Antik Batik





With some of the coolest shoes, Antik Batik sells the most trendy embellished sandals. With ribbon, beads, and fringe, the shoes stand out with an ethnic and chic flair. Antik Batik has most of their stores in Europe, with only one store in America (New York). The shoes were featured in the June/July issue of Teen Vogue (pictured above).

Milly Fall 09




Michelle Smith's fall collection sticks with natural tones such as blacks, browns, and carmels; however her pieces stand out due to their singular qualities and design features. Many designs included lace and layers, and there were a plethora of dresses on the runway. Accessories were used to top off each garment, such as scarves, head wear, and gloves.

Madewell




Madewell is J. Crew's sister store which appeals to younger women and has more casual clothing. I went to the store at the Short Hill's mall in New Jersey, and I absolutely fell in love with the apparel. The store had unique gladiator sandals with zipper detail, colorful embroidered scarves, bleach died jeans, and everything was at an affordable price.  There are only eighteen stores in the US, and hopefully they will start opening more and more! Be sure to check out the website to view the latest Madewell trends lookbook!

X Marc's the Spot






Marc Jacob's fall 2009 collection is absolutely amazing. It consists of structural pieces, neons, and big shoulders. The collection is based off of 80's fashions, with mohawks and big sunglasses. Models wore Nars makeup, which gave off a very edgy feel. The color palette consists of blacks, dark purples, and golds. Marc Jacobs yet again showed another unforgettable collection.

Knitwit


Shopping in Phili, my family and I came across a really cute store. Off of Rittenhouse Row, Knitwit has some really unique pieces. I found the coolest top, J-brand jeans, and beaded elastic belts. The top has really intricate orange embroidery and the jeans are really trendy with the distressing and worn-out parts. The store holds many well known brands such as Ella Moss and Alice and Olivia. As well, it has some one of a kind pieces, such as the shirt that I purchased. Visit Knitwitonline.com, I highly recommend it!

Summer Dresses



I just put together two summer looks, which happen to both involve dresses! In the first outfit I put together, I am wearing a grey Splendid dress, my mom's elastic gold belt, and Enzo Angiolin metallic gold T-strap sandals. In the Second outfit I am wearing my friend's off-white Urban Outfitters dress, along with Sam Edelman weaved sandals, and my grandmother's vintage leather bag. It's really nice to be able to throw on a dress, pair it with some accessories, and run out the door! I am looking forward to the warm weather ahead!
