Gothic florals! Sequined leopard shoes! Mile-long lashes! We’re bringing the drama this fall. Plus some cuteness for the kiddos…these classics are cleverly reinvented for the littlest learners.
Alicia: Fall is all about dark floral prints that exude feminine mystery. The Frieda Dress in a gothic floral offers a loose fit and is exquisitely constructed with pockets, fully French seamed, and bound at the neck with a shock of acid ochre. Style it for a fall wedding with some statement heels (perhaps the Mitchell from Marion Parke at The Shoe Hive!), or go casual with a little slip on sneaker (such as Supergas in burgundy velvet). The flexibility and comfort are a winning combination with this style! (Available at TSALT, $478)
Angela: Crafted from naturally shed mink hairs, Esqido False Lashes are inexplicably natural looking and can be re-used many times. (Available at Bellacara, $29)
Susie: These beautiful sheep rattle toys are perfect for the new baby in your life. Made with 100 percent Peruvian organic cotton and dyed with vegetable dyes, they are hand-knitted with love and care by Peruvian artisans. Packaged in a beautiful, sheer organza bag ready to present as a gift. (Available at Coco Blanca, $32.50)
Elizabeth: The Caty by Kate Spade is triple threat: sequins, animal print and cat ears. (Available at The Shoe Hive, $258)
Amy: It’s never too early to get your kids reading! Storytime has been colorfully retold for the youngest generation with these new recreations of classic tales. Learn to count with Elizabeth Bennett and Spanish with Don Quixote every night before bed. (Available at Red Barn Mercantile, $9.99)
Celeste: This Bailey44 jacket is made of über-soft ponte knit with a button front and ribbed sweater cuff and collar. It nips in for a fitted waist and has scooped hem for a flattering and feminine fit. (Available at Kiskadee, $330)
