This season, animal motifs are everywhere: on tees, dresses, scarves - you name it! But we especially love this bird print dress by Maeve, available at Anthropologie. The print is colorful and different, yet on a classic silhouette that you can wear to any summer event.

We took a peek at San Francisco-based designer Nikki Garcia’s Fall 2012 lookbook for her line First Rite, and we’re ready for fall to begin (Well, not quite - a few more beach days, please!). Equestrian-inspired pieces are perfect for the upcoming season, and we need all of the uber chic pant options. Here are a few more shots, you can view the entire lookbook at



The 2012 Summer Olympics are taking over! And not just your TV screen - they’re inspiring fashion pieces too. We love the subtle take on the theme by Etsy seller ThePolkadotMagpie. The Olympic Five Gold Rings Necklace ($38) is actually made of brass, but it’s a classic that will go with anything.

We love a major pair of statement shoes, and Milan-based designer Max Kibardin certainly has a plethora of them. Siberian-born Kibardin is the creative director of Bruno Magli, and he has worked with Reem Acra, Chado Ralph Rucci and J. Mendel. If his fashionable resume doesn’t impress you, then his fancy footwear definitely will. Hot pink spikes, sparkles and feathers make a scene while his more muted but sculptural pumps and ankle boots are also gorgeous.

Find the collection at Saks.


Is the air conditioning in your office on WAY too high? That sleeveless dress you wore this morning isn’t feeling so great any more. That’s why you need a chic scarf or to for storing at your desk and throwing on when things get chilly. We love Leigh & Luca’s stylish prints and luxurious fabrics. Shop scarves online at
