mandycoonss11_thumb.pngAnother designer to watch this season is Mandy Coon. Her spring 2011 collection was loosely inspired by jelly fish, she told, and the result is certainly unique and eye catching. Her color palette was mostly neutral, with a few pops of bright to keep things interesting. The overall vibe was edgy, yet sleek and natural. Mandy Coon’s current collection is sold at Opening Ceremony in New York and LA, and we hope to find the spring line in more locations. To find out more, visit


ldss11_thumb.pngIt’s that time of year again - fashion week! While we’re excited to see what our favorite designers will be sending down the runway, we’re also pumped to check out some emerging talent showing this season. 

One collection that has already caught our eye is Lyn Devon’s. New York-based Devon launched her line in fall 2005, and was named one of “The Season’s 10 Most Promising Talents” by for fall 2008. Since then she has been awarded the prestigious Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation Award for womenswear and in 2009 she was accepted into the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America). This year, her spring 2011 collection of luxury American sportswear did not disappoint. Playful prints and unexpected hues complemented classic silhouettes and styles for a versatile, youthful combination. Here are some of the looks we’re coveting:

We love statement jewelry, and these super cool earrings from Seville Michelle Anastos really make a statement. Leather hoops in metallic colors and crazy shapes will stand out, but they won’t weight you down - the earrings are made with bamboo, which keeps them lightweight. This jewelry collection is certainly not for girls who want to blend in!

Prices start at $56 at
So we know it’s a little early to be shopping for gloves, but these fingerless gloves are so cute we couldn’t resist posting them. They are warm and cozy, and the red flower will add a pop of color to drab cold-weather outfits. At $16, they are the perfect “get ready for fall” treat to buy yourself - or even to get a very early jump start on your holiday shopping!

bullet_girl_thumb.pngWe recently spotted a cool necklace on Miranda Lambert at the CMA Fest, and upon further investigation discovered it was the from new jewelry line Bullet Girl. All the pieces are made with real bullets - how cool is that? The blanks are sourced from the Houston-based designer’s grandfather’s ammunition factory in Cuernavaca, Mexico. Miranda is a huge fan of the line - here are some pieces she has worn on tour:

Bullet Girl is available at and prices range from about $125 to $650.
