Sister Sister

I have long been a fan of French fashion staples, Maje and Sandro, but was never aware of the unique story behind them until recently. Founded independently by sisters, Judith Milgrom and Evenlyne Chetrite, Maje and Sandro (respectively) were created to fill a gap in the marketplace for accessible luxury. It is truly incredible that both brands have become retail staples that define the epitome of French Chic. Here are a few of my favorite Fall finds from each....

MAJE - Classic Navy Striped Sweater 

MAJE - Leather A Line Skirt

MAJE - Ruffle Top

MAJE - Box Pleat Skirt  

SANDRO - Lace Dress

SANDRO - Round Neck Dress

Fanciful Birthday Fete

You all know well by now that I am quite smitten with Alice Naylor-Leyland's style and whimsical adventures around the English countryside. Thus, it is truly no surprise that I have been drooling over the images of her 30th Birthday bash held at her country estate. I adore the juxtaposition of the multicolored balloons (evoking childhood parties!) mixed with exquisite blooms and guests wearing elegant ball gowns. Follow Vogue's behind the scenes look here for a closer glimpse at the truly fabulous fete.

Head over Heels: The Perfect Pump

The oversized grosgrain bow perfectly accents these stunning suede pointy toe pumps. If anyone truly knows a dramatic bow, it's Miu Miu. These are appropriate to wear from the boardroom to the ballroom (and quite honestly everywhere in between!). Truly a shoe staple I am lusting after this Fall.

Baby CZ

There is no doubt that Baby CZ by Carolina Zapf is most certainly one of my favorite baby brands. Their timeless aesthetic and heirloom quality is truly gorgeous. If you are looking for a show-stopping baby gift, their cashmere pieces are the ultimate luxury (I am seriously smitten with this double breasted cardigan!). I was delighted to discover that this week they re-designed their website and now have a mobile site (hello, easier shopping!). They also having a serious sale on their Summer styles, if you are looking to get this beautiful quality without the high price point. Happy Shopping!

Aisle Style: Giovanna Battaglia

It is no surprise that sartorial star and street style icon, Giovanna Battaglia had an impeccable wedding wardrobe as she donned not just one, but FOUR incredible gowns for her over the top nuptials in Capri this past June. I remember immediately stalking the wedding on Instagram to see each dress after the next as the day unfolded. 

However, my favorite of Giovanna's bridal looks was not from her reception in Capri, but rather from her private civil ceremony held in Stockholm. I am simply smitten with this exquisite pearl trimmed dress and caplet designed by Thom Brown. The silhouette is absolutely modern yet utterly timeless. And that darling Stephen Jones headband is just the icing on the cake.

Twist on a Classic

This Fall, I love the way J.CREW is putting a signature twist on the classic shirting stripe. I adore the juxtaposition of mixing classic menswear fabric with uber-feminine silhouettes and details from ruffles to bows. Here are a few of their tops in shirting stripes I'd love to add to my wardrobe this season ...

Put A Pearl On It

To say I am smitten with Nicholas Kirkwood's pearl embellished shoes is simply an understatement. This Fall, I am drooling over the ballet flats, slippers, and pumps all featuring signature pearl accents. The detail elevates a classic shoe in a perfectly subtle and sophisticated way.  Which of the shoes would you choose?!

Biscuit Home

I am truly smitten with Houston-based, Biscuit Home. The brand was the brainchild of uber-talented interior designer, Bailey McCarthy. Their linens are whimsical yet sophisticated and make an incredible impact in any room. I adore so many of the prints in their latest collection and am totally inspired to re-do my daughter Grace's room for when she is older to look like that above featuring their "Austin" linens. In addition to bedding they also carry an impeccably edited selection of other home decor and gifts. Sweet Dreams, Darlings!

Madderson London

I recently discovered this gorgeous Women's Ready to Wear line based out of London, Madderson. I adore their clean lines and fabulous fringe pieces like this and this. What is even better about this brand is that they also have a beautiful maternity line, which those of you who have been pregnant know how difficult it is to find great maternity pieces {almost impossible!) Absolutely loving this {new to me} label.
