We fell in love with the DKNY cape dress at first sight, but unfortunately so did too many others - the style has been snapped up and remains sold out online. However, we were able to find a similar style that’s also way affordable - only $55! - at online indie boutique Thompson / Fifteen. Perfect for New Years’ Eve, this Cat Woman-inspired dress features sheer cape sleeves and a fitted body. We’re placing our order now!

georgie_ashley_pants_thumb.jpgOk, so maybe the title of this post was a slight exaggeration, but we recently joined the fan club for these pretty amazing pants by up-and-coming brand Georgie. The young label is based in LA, and their trendy Ashley and St. Barth’s pant styles have already garnered a cult following. And these boho-chic options are the perfect opportunity to try out the bell bottoms trend!

The latest designer collection we can’t stop shopping hails from Paris, and only just recently opened a brand new flagship store in New York. Surface To Air has all the separates and dresses you’ll need this winter, whether you’re heading out for some weekend shopping or taking the reins at a board meeting. The clothes are both wearable and on-trend: sophisticated and upscale but with a slight hipster vibe. A rare combination for sure! Shop online at or at 27 Mercer Street in New York.Surface_To_Air_FW11_Thumb.jpg

Studded flats are definitely a must-have accessory this season, and we’ve been hunting for the perfect pair. Luckily for us, Matiko has two chic options that bring the perfect bit of edgy rocker style to any look. The LA-based shoe label’s fall 2011 collection is named “Strange Nature,” and these two pairs definitely fit the description!
