Banana Republic, Marimekko & Me…

Banana Republic & Marimekko

Well Darlings, I for one, cannot wait for the release of the limited edition capsule collection from Banana Republic and Marimekko.  Now this is a collaboration I can work with.  I will have my Banana card at the ready, especially for the skirt above.  I love a full midi skirt with side pockets, which is always a classic and timeless look.

Marimekko’s signature bold prints have graced clothes, fabrics, furniture, and tableware; and now Banana Republic has collaborated with the Finland based brand to come up with what in my opinion, will be a sell out collection {especially that skirt!}.

The two looks below are also on my radar, I’m loving  those cropped pants!!

Set your smart phone/tablet a few days ahead, to remind you, the collection debuts in select stores and online May 22.

Dear Edna…

June Ambrose Edna Frame

I am so in love with June Ambrose’s Edna Frames.  The super stylist to the stars has launched her sophomore collection of yet another crowd stopping, “where did you get those fabulous shades“; in collaboration with Selima Optique, the trend setting luxury eye-wear brand.  Nothing says “I’m super gorgeous”, than big statement frames.  These will definitely be going on my wish list, and staying on my radar, as it’s time to give my beloved Prada’s a rest, and start searching for a worthy replacement for summer 2014.

Available online at Selima Optique. in Black, Blond Horn (shown) and Blue Crystal.
