luuki2011thumb.pngWe are obsessing over these two dresses from Etsy seller Luuki. The bright colors and prints are amazing, and the silhouettes are edgy and unique. You definitely won’t see yourself coming and going in these pieces! And did we mention that they are both under $75?


Clara Kasavina collaborates on her namesake handbag line with her husband, Misha Berger. Kasavina grew up as the daughter of a dressmaker in Russia, and she met Ukranian Berger in New York where he was a sculptor. The two merged their creative abilities and sense of style to launch a unique handbag line of metal minaudiere boxes coated with Swarovski crystals and cabochons, luxury skins, special fabrics, and beadwork. All the bags are entirely hand sewn and produced in New York, and one of Kasavina’s pieces was even chosen for display by the Metropolitan Museum of Art for a tribute to fashion legend Iris Apfel. The luxury line is often spotted on celebrities and socialites, and this year Clara Kasavina is a finalist in for the Independent Handbag Designer Awards. 

Prices range from about $300 to $1800 and the handbags are available online at

Peggy Li’s “Floating Geometry” collection is filled with affordable and stylish pieces for summer. Using triangle-cut stones as a jumping off point, Li played with the idea of geometric shapes and colors, resulting in statement pieces that are both simple and elegant.
