Meredith_Wendell_circle_bag.jpgThis spring, the canvas circle style by Meredith Wendell will deliver the perfect punch of color to your look. We love how the designer, known for her modern designs and eye-catching color palette, mixed canvas with leather and gold hardware. A seasonal must-have for trendy fashionistas? We think so!

Collar necklaces are so on trend right now, and they are such a fun way to jazz up something you already own, like a striped tee or high-neck dress. We love this felt option with metal pyramid studs by Etsy seller LionHairs. The necklace features a ribbon tie back so you can adjust it to fit your look perfectly.

We love brands that use eco-friendly, sustainable fabrics and design processes, but Los Angeles-based label Lavuk takes things one step further: for every garment sold, a tree is planted through American Forests as part of the California Wildlife ReLeaf program. And these pieces by young designer Natasha Gindin aren’t just feel-good - they look good too! Below are some of our favorites - view the entire collection online at


KalReiman_Fall2012_thumb.jpgWe first discovered Kal Rieman last season, so we were super excited to get to take a peek at their Fall 2012 lookbook yesterday. Of course, it’s amazing. There are so many styles we want! Too bad we’ll have to wait until next fall (although designer Cally Rieman does promise that new spring/summer styles will be available at shortly).


Known for edgy jewelry and body chains, Luv AJ has expanded into turbans for this latest collaboration with UNH. Turbans have been popping up everywhere lately, from The Sartorialist throughout the rest of the blogosphere, but would you wear one of these? The collection seems to have something for everyone, at prices ranging from $58 to $108: mesh, perforated, studded, silk, leather and metallic. Shop online at
