Indie Scoop
Riding a bike is going to be the chic thing to do in 2012. Many designers will be churning out bicycle-inspired collections for spring, since the eco way is now the trendy way to be! Fortunately, you don’t have to wear an ugly helmet to stay safe while cruising around on your wheels. We found these fashionable options from London-based Japanese designer Sawako Furuno that will keep you looking feminine and stylish during your ride. Fashion meets function with these helmets, which feature an EPS Shock absorbing liner, classic 11 air vent holes to keep your head cool, quick release buckles, and more. Find them at Cloak & Dagger for $198 each.cute_bike_helmuts_1_thumb.jpg

How pretty is this ring? The blue Chalcedony faceted gemstone is wrapped in sterling silver wire, for a piece that is both classic and stylish. The pop of blue is perfect for brightening up a winter outfit. This piece would also make the perfect gift for mom or a bride-to-be as something blue!

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!
