Lykke Wullf

il_fullxfull.657367189_q8bkHave you guys heard of Lykke Wullf? I had not, until recently, through Skunkboy Blog. Well, it was more like in the Summer, but it wasn’t until I started following them on instagram that I really took a look at their garments and became quite fond of the brand. Their styling and aesthetic feels a bit gypsy-boho-punk (that’s a mouthful) at times, but I look at these pieces, and very much see someone like myself being able to wear them with a totally different vibe. I’m especially fond of their denim overalls. They have a distinct 70s feel to them which I obviously like. You’d be hard pressed to find an actual pair of vintage overalls that are not totally unflattering (baggy 90s overalls, i”m looking at you), so it’s nice to come across brands that offer something vintage-inspired that is not already totally over-saturated in the vintage market. And how about that eye print!? Obviously not a new idea, I’ve seen plenty of brands coming out with novelty eye prints, but that doesn’t stop me from liking every single one of them. This print is especially interesting because it reminds me of the pen and sharpie drawings my best friend and I would doodle on our tattered denim jeans and shoes when we were bored in high school. However, it didn’t look nearly as nice as these. I’ve always been a terrible drawer.

You can follow Lykke Wullf on instagram for updates and pretty things almost daily, and they also sell on etsy.

Natalie Joos & Kipling

KiplingLB_98_low_res-568x853I had never really paid attention to Kipling until one of my favourite bloggers and stylists, Natalie Joos, collaborated with them awhile back to design her own collection of bags. This here is their newest collection styled by her, and I am so in love. If you follow Natalie’s blog then you already know her love of vintage, and her incomparable ability to style outfits in the most interesting of ways. Sometimes her fashion choices and styling are a bit too “fashion” for me (if you get what i mean…), but just because I wouldn’t necessarily wear it myself, does not mean I don’t appreciate her talent. Maybe it’s just too far above my head, so high-fashion that it makes no sense to me. But I love the styling in this lookbook and it resonates with me. To be honest, I hardly even look at the bags because the clothing is what stands out most (uh oh, probably not what they were going for). It’s quite obviously inspired by 60s fashion but has this odd futuristic vibe to it. Natalie has this amazing way of making things look futuristic while also seeming retro, and it’s kind of perfect. Future Retro, that should be a thing.

Daydream Manor

tumblr_nc0vhq5Typ1rn6caco9_500I was going to share an entirely (very) different collection today, but then I happened to browse Samantha Pleet’s new website and saw these images that I had seen behind-the-scenes of on instagram several months ago. Needless to say I got excited and decided to share it instead of what I had planned for today. But that is no surprise here. I am a long time fan of Samantha, everything she does, and the people she surrounds herself with. I liken her and the work/garments she produces to something of a enchanted-goddess-superhuman-angel. As you can see, when I like things, I tend to gush over them, like a lot, to an excessive point. But in all seriousness, her work and garments feel very otherworldly to me, and that’s probably why I like it so much, and will continue to enjoy them for years to come, I hope.

Dear Creatures Fall 2014

cd16_zpsa997938bI thought I wouldn’t be excited for Fall to come, really and truly. I actually thought I’d be very, very bummed about it. It has been yet another idyllic Summer that I would be quite happy to have last forever. But then I remembered Fall clothes, and layers, and boots, and hats and a nip in the air (just a nip though), and pumpkin patches, and fallen leaves, and I’m excited (and and and). Maybe change is just always a welcome thing. To stay the same is to reject progress, or something like that. But honestly, for me, this Summer hasn’t been great (except for all the awesome photoshoots I worked on, that was great) I’ve been ill, several times, and then my dog passed away suddenly, and then it was one thing after another. My body and mind are both tired at this point. So I can’t wait for a change – a change in season, a change is pace, a change in my outlook. I have some pretty big life changes coming up (moving!), and planned for myself (stay tuned!). So I feel like there are things to look forward to. The cold weather doesn’t always need to be a bad thing. The plants are dying, yes, the sun will hide it’s bright, beautiful face for a lot more hours of the day, yes, but that doesn’t mean we need to make like nature.

Anyways, Dear Creatures Fall 2014 campaign got me excited about Fall, and the changing of seasons. They have always been one of my favorite brands, and this collection is no exception. I’m particularly loving their caramel colored fuzzy sweaters that would be absolutely perfect for cool walks in the park, and well, anything Fall-oriented.

Vivetta F/W ’14

 

vivetta-look-book-autumn-fall-winter-20147Vivetta‘s signature style has always been one of surrealism, vintage silhouettes, clean lines with an odd femininity to them. It’s a style I can really get down with. While it may not feel like Fall at all yet, and well, it isn’t Fall yet, I’m starting to figure out what sort of things I’d like to be wearing during the colder months. Vivetta F/W 2014 has been a real inspiration for me. Just because it’s fall/winter doesn’t mean we need to put away the bright hues. In fact, there may not be a better time than during the grey and dreary days to adorn ourselves in cheery colors. I love the pops of surrealism in Vivetta’s garments. It’s probably my favourite part, aside from the vintage inspired silhouettes. It’s the right amount of classic with an undeniable originality that makes them stand-out as a brand that is wholly it’s own. I’ve really been feeling matching sets lately (like the image above), and I think I’m going to need to find myself a few to add to my closet. Maybe I’ll even treat myself to a piece from this brand. Although, I’ll probably only be able to afford the hands collar, which is fine, because it’s basically the best thing ever created.
