We started off day 1 of market at the Coterie and it was busy, busy, busy! We saw almost 16 different lines and our heads are still spinning at how beautiful Spring 2017 looks thus far. Below are some of the highlights from the day!
All of the chilly temps lately have us dreaming of warmer weather and wearing easy breezy Resort/Spring styles. One of my favorite designers for warm weather is Megan Park. She always has amazing prints and her pieces are so effortless and easy to wear. Take a peek below at some of the pieces from her fabulous Resort collection that are in store now! Shop all of the looks here!
This first look features the Molokai Crepe Sundress. This dress features a cute tie detailing on each side and has a vivid floral print featuring bright red and a pretty bubblegum pink. We paired it with the Megan Park Cluster necklace, a Rebecca Minkoff Saddle Crossbody and Rebecca Minkoff Rosalie heels.
We absolutely love the Maui Print that is featured in this next outfit. The colors are vibrant and fun and the pattern looks like it was hand drawn on this halter top giving it a whimsical feel. We paired the blouse with a great fitting pair of J Brand skinny jeans. We cuffed the jeans to give it a casual feel and paired it with a pair of Jerome Dreyfuss heels (they are on super sale right now). We finished it off by layering multiple black beaded necklaces.
The next dress could double as a great cover-up on your next vacation. The beautiful floral hand embroidered detailing at the top of the dress give it a real richness! To make this dress more appropriate for cooler weather we styled it with a pair of Rebecca Minkoff suede fringe booties. We added a great cuff by Dannijo and earrings by Kendra Scott.
We love the Maui print so much we had to show you another style that features the gorgeous print. This maxi is what dreams are made of! What isn’t there to love about this dress? We paired it with these super fun and flirty earrings that were made to go with this maxi!
Countdown to Spring: 56 days!
Day 2 was full of fashion shows, outfit changes and lots of running around in between! Below are a few of our looks from the day! Shop all of these looks now at www.lovemosaic.com!
What you may not know when looking at the three outfits above is that each one features an item from Spring. With the end of each season we are always looking forward to what new items we can buy and sometimes neglect great items from past season that can transition seamlessly into the next. I was looking through out Spring Sale racks last week and realized there were some amazing pieces left at great prices that could easily be worn this Fall. We have styled three different outfits in this post to show you how easy it is to incorporate some of your favorite Spring pieces into Fall ensembles.
The first item is the by Malene Birger Latsy printed maxi dress. Who doesn’t love a sleeveless maxi dress in the Spring and Summer? However, sometimes we put these away once the season ends and don’t pull them out again until the next year. This maxi dress features a neutral palette and therefore doesn’t limit itself to one season. We paired it with a cozy new Allude Chunky sweater. This is one of our favorite pieces for Fall and we cinched it in with a by Malene Birger wrap around belt. The Jerome Dreyfuss booties we paired it with are also a Spring item but would be a great neutral heel to take into Fall. Did we mention our Sale items are 60% off?!?!
The next outfit actually features two Spring items. We took an easy Elliott Lauren button down and paired it over a causal Rachel Pally maxi dress. I love the look of taking a loose fitting button down and tying it in the front with a short or long dress. It is casual and easy but looks put together and stylish at the same time!
For the final look we combined this great IRO sweatshirt from Spring with a new printed Equipment blouse and a great pair of Current Elliott skinnies. This is a great way to incorporate your favorite sleeveless blouses into Fall outfits. Layer them with your favorite sweater or jacket so can continue to enjoy wearing them.
These items and many other great finds are available in our 60% off Sale going on now!!
This week we welcomed designer Milly to the Mosaic family! We were excited to receive our first shipment and it didn’t disappoint. I have always liked Milly’s designs but in the past several years Michelle Smith, founder and designer, has totally stepped up her game. She has added a bold flare to her classic designs. Whether you love a sophisticated sheath dress in a bold print or a young and fun midi skirt with a crop top, Milly has something for every age or style. Her pieces are very versatile and can be worn so many different ways. The Tess blouse, seen below styled 3 different ways, is a prime example of that. It can be paired with a leather skirt, casual black shorts or layered under a dress. This is a blouse that will become your go-to!
The Butterfly dress is a style that Milly does in many colors but we opted for a beautiful cobalt blue color way (this is one of the colors for Fall 2015). Most people would buy this dress to wear to a dressy event but we also love this dress paired with a funky pair of booties and some wood and tassel necklaces to dress it down.
I can’t finish this post with out spotlighting the amazing Tweed Day coat. It is everything you would want in a coat – versatile, fun and classic all in one! Shop these styles and others online now and stay tuned for more new arrivals from Milly coming soon!!
Let’s take a moment and talk about one of our new lines at Mosaic, A.L.C. The Andrea Lieberman Collection has set the standard on cool season after season since its debut in 2009. Stylist turned designer, Andrea Lieberman made a name for herself dressing Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Hudson, Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, Gwen Stefani and Jennifer Lopez. (Yes, she was responsible for that iconic green Versace gown that JLo wore to the Grammys’ in 2009.) Her collection is filled with refined essentials that are classic and wearable. You will find sophisticated and luxurious pieces with a casual vibe that can be worn a number of ways. Pieces from her collection will certainly be classics in your wardrobe that you will reach for for years to come.
The Nora dress by A.L.C. takes a sophisticated silhouette and makes it fun with a bold, floral pattern. The subtle flare of the sleeve and skirt elongate your limbs and make you appear thin and tall. The luxurious silk fabric flows away from the body so nicely and the vibrant floral pattern makes this a statement dress. We added some Eddie Borgo bracelets to give it some edge and our favorite Rebecca Minkoff Raz heels in Black.
A girl can never go wrong with a simple black and white striped dress. Andrea has updated the classic striped dress we all know and love with her Fain dress. The paneled construction and mismatched stripes create a visually slimming effect. I love how the fluttering asymmetrical hemline adds some femininity to this structured dress. We added a brass tasseled vintage necklace, black gladiator sandals and a fun marble printed crossbody by Rebecca Minkoff to make the look a little more funky. I can see myself wearing this on a weekend away exploring a new city or visiting with friends. This little number will keep you cool and comfortable as the temperatures rise this Summer.
Last, but not least I want to show you this knockout piece, the Cini Dress in Bubblegum and Sunset. This flirty little dress features criss cross straps in the back and a flared skirt. The vivid colors of the fabric make this a piece that will turn heads when you walk into the room. Nude heels are the perfect accessory for this bright dress. Dannijo’s new spring pieces arrived just in time for this look. I love how the blue accents in Gemma bib and Andy cuff pop against the pink in the dress. The silver Navi earrings are the perfect statement earring for day or evening. We love to mix colors and patterns so we paired Rebecca Minkoff’s Leo Clutch in Watercolor Multi with this look.
