New Line! Bella Dahl

Who would have thought when we ordered these pieces back in January that the weather would only just be inching close to nice enough to wear them? I do love living in the midwest, but sometimes a more consistent weather pattern would be nice, no? Enough weather musings, on to the important stuff!

Bella Dahl is a new line for us. We couldn't resist these comfy casual pieces and think you won't be able to either.

First up, the pullover placket shirt in pale denim $85. We paired it with the foldover waistband wide leg pant in sand $107. You have to touch them for yourself to see how soft the fabrics are. Perfect for a spring or summer stroll around town.

Here are the same foldover waistband wide leg pants in army $107. We like these with a loose white tank and blush colored duster or grey slim fitting cardigan.

I also want to mention how wonderful the foldover waistband is. You can wear it unfolded so that it acts as a waist smoother, or fold it over to smooth out the hip area. Who doesn't need a little smoothing every now and again? So flattering!

Again with the super soft fabric! This v-neck tee in blue with fading in all of the right places ($66) is the new version of your favorite tee. You know, the one you wear so often, it has started to thin. Go ahead, throw it away! OK OK, we know it's so hard to say goodbye. Just put it in the back of a drawer so you are not tempted to wear it anymore. Whenever you go to reach for it, think of this little number instead!

Ah yes, the dress. This machine washable 100% linen dress is the epitome of summertime cool. We are imagining it with pure and simple black midcalf leggings and some cool black leather flip flops or t-strap sandals. It would also work great as a swimsuit cover up at the beach or pool.

The shirtdress style is chic/casual perfection and for a mere $110 this one can be yours!

New Jewelry Line Charlene K

Our first arrival from the orders we placed in Vegas! Charlene K. Really great jewelry line out of California. Stars like Eva Longoria love it, and you will too!

Simple alphabet discs in gold or silver are perfect for a gift for you or someone else. Get your first and last initials, or one or the other. So simple and so cool. $45

The gold wrapped geodes are amazing. Hanging from a long chain, they will look cool with anything from a tank top to an evening gown. $99

New Arrivals from linQ

That's right. Fresh out of the box! I wish the thermometer wasn't reading in the negatives right now! I'm feeling so inspired to wear these new pieces!

First up is this great one pocket striped racerback tank. I love the grommets on the pocket. So cool! The color is called concrete, which means it's grey with black flecks and a great burnout detail. Note the long torso length. $68

Foxy. That's how you will look in this dress. The ruching is so flattering, I can't find words to explain it. While this is long enough to wear as a dress, it also looks great with leggings or skinny jeans. The rayon/spandex fabric is super soft and the putty color is flattering on all skin types. $138

Nothing to wear to the game?

Let us make a few suggestions!

First up is the ensemble on the right. Shimmery gold sleeveless top from liquid, paired with an olive green blazer from linQ, bootcut denim in phantom wash from pur premium denim and a long wood bead necklace in a matching green color. Stylish, comfy and perfect no matter where you will find yourself this Sunday.

Next up we have a slightly more casual look. Kelly green v-neck burnout tee from Milwaukee based brand NEWD, paired with the Allegheny sweater in camel from Central Park West and scarlette straight leg jeans from pur premium denim. We love the way the gold metal and brown bead necklace pulls the look together.

Oh yeah, and...

New Arrivals from Waverly Grey

These three beauties arrived just the other day from New York City. New York City?!?!

They are the first of our Spring 2011 orders to arrive and they are gorgeous and can totally be worn right now. (Especially if you are going on vacation to an amazing tropical destination!) The Navy and White maxi dress ($275) with brown skinny belt is made from a gorgeous silk fabric, has a cool racer back detail and is fully lined. We paired it with a faux pearl necklace and a rayon and silk blend wrap cardi ($125) in pink.

The fabric is the same on the pocket tee ($105) and the cardigan as is the color. It's so soft and lightweight. Perfect for
Spring and Summer no matter where you are!
