This week our online shopping adventures took us back to Of a Kind, which we wrote about last month. We instantly fell in love with this chunky rope bracelet by California designer Tanya Aguiniga. Painted with gold leaf, the bracelet makes a statement at 2.5 in tall. Perfect for pairing with fall’s chunky knits or dressing up a basic tee. There are only 25 of these pieces available, so snap one up while you can!
Gold-Leafed Rope Cuff by Tanya Aguiniga, $85 at gold_rope_cuff_thumb.jpg
unif_floral_top_thumb.jpgWe’re not sure if this is a term, but the only way we can think of describing this line UNIF is “hipster sexy.” The initials UNIF actually stand for “You’re Not In Fashion” and the collection was founded in Los Angeles by DJ Eric Espinoza. Espinoza is inspired by the culture of LA, as well as the the underground electronic music community in the city. The result is a line of edgy pieces with occasional pops of brights and florals.

We spotted some girls wearing these fabulous ankle cuffs by J. Dot Designs during Fashion’s Night Out in NYC, so naturally we had to log on and see these creations ourselves! If you’re looking for a new way to add some pizazz (and feathers!) to your style, you should definitely visit this store. Your heels will look more fierce and you won’t be able to walk a block without someone stopping you to ask where you got them!jdotdesigns_thumb.jpg

Beatrixe_FW2011.jpgWe recently stumbled across New York City up-and-comer Beatrixe, and we are literally dying over almost every single one of their pieces. A neutral palette for fall 2011 leaves us with luxe separates in flowing silhouettes, perfect for pairing with chunky sweaters or jeans this season. 

The young line was born in fall 2010 when three European partners came together from various backgrounds in investment banking, marketing, and design. The name evolved from the world meaning “voyager through life” in Latin, symbolizing how the brand will evolve in the upcoming season to create a complete world for the woman who wears Beatrixe. We can’t wait to see what this evolution will bring! 

For now, shop Beatrixe at 25 Park and Satine Boutique.beatrixe_thumb.jpg

dolcetta_by_dolce_vita_bootie.jpgIt’s pretty rare to see an on-trend shoe you NEED, flip over the price tag, and see a number under $100. So we were really excited to discover that one of our favorite affordable shoe brands, Dolce Vita, had collaborated with Urban Outfitters for the line Dolcetta by Dolce Vita. The harness heel boot has everything we’re looking for this fall: a chunky heel for comfort, a bit of edgy metal, a neutral go-with-everything color, and riding-inspired details. All for $98!
