Friday’s Most Wanted – Christian Dior

It’s Paris Fashion Week, so of course this week’s most wanted are several pieces from one of the couture shows – Christian Dior. The show itself included pieces representative of many different eras and was divided into 8 different groups. The pieces I loved so much were all the coats and jackets, and one specific black and white dress. Check them out below! While the fur coat is absolutely gorgeous, I wouldn’t wear it unless it was imitation fur, but I wanted to include it in this post because I love the way all the separate pieces are paired together. Jackets are paired with pants and tops that make the complete outfit look very cut and clean, but still stylish.

Friday’s Most Wanted

Since this weekend is Memorial Day Weekend, this week’s Friday’s Most Wanted is a very unique red, white, and blue dress (not in the traditional stars and striped way!). Check it out – it’s a Mary Katrantzou design, called Harbour Bridges Printed Dress in Multi. Isn’t it so unique? The entire dress is photo printed with bridges and trees. Talk about some pattern-and-print-play! The price is a little much, but hey a girl can dream. Hope everyone enjoys their Memorial Day Weekend. I will be spending mine away in the mountains, and then at a spa. Can’t wait for some relaxing time!

Friday’s Most Wanted

Easy, breezy (beautiful Cover Girl?) dress. I really love this Anthropologie Estrella Maxi Dress. I’m an advocate of maxi dresses and skirts, AND I just read the other day that wearing them boosts women’s confidence, so take that all you maxi dress haters! Anyway, not only do I love that this Anthro dress is a little longer than the usual summer frock, I really like the cut and the bright design on black – this adds for a nice contrast, and allows for some great easy pairing. By that I mean, you can dress this look up or down, wear it with colored accents, or pair it with neutrals. Many options all in one dress.

Friday’s Most Wanted – Home Decor

Today’s most wanted are several home decor products from a lovely site called Brika. Brika features unique jewelry, house and home items, accessories, and a whole bunch of other good stuff from designers and artists. The three pieces in today’s most wanted are from the site’s “Spring Decor” shop.

Coral + Gold Ring Dish, $22

Coral + Gold Ring Dish, $22

I love the color coral, especially for spring, and it looks great with the gold markings on this cute little plate. Also loving the sun-type design.

Mustard Estrellas Fabric Bucket, $22

Mustard Estrellas Fabric Bucket, $22

This fabric bucket is a two-for-one deal. It’s the perfect way to brighten up a space, and serves as storage. I have an obsession with storage buckets and bins (I know, it’s weird).

Lemons Print, $35

Lemons Print, $35

This print reminds me of a white lemon-patterned skirt I bought, which then reminds me of the Amalfi Coast in Italy (please take me back there!). It’s a fun bright print that can make any room more lively.

 

Friday’s Most Wanted – DVF Dress

This week’s most wanted is this Cadence Trim Detail Silk Shirt Dress by DVF. I absolutely LOVE DVF and am determined to own a DVF wrap dress one day. Here’s what I love about the Cadence Trim dress: it’s blue and white (great colors for any season), it’s silk, it has a belt to tie the dress and show off the waist, and the white piping in the middle and bottom of the dress is a very classy touch. It would make a great Easter dress – Happy Easter everyone!

Friday’s Most Wanted – Zara Dress

I’m really feeling all the patterns and prints, bolds and brights this season. I walked into Zara yesterday and they have some really great spring pieces. This flower-patterned dress was one of the pieces that caught my eye. It’s the perfect Easter dress, and the back shows just the right amount of skin. I would probably pair this with some nude wedges and my trusty jean jacket, and voila! what a simple yet fashionable outfit.

Friday’s Most Wanted – Hermes

This week’s most wanted is a jewelry piece I saw on a blog with a view - a red enamel Hermes bracelet. I was searching for something completely unrelated online, and came across this Hermes Balcon du Guadalquivir Enamel Bracelet. It’s such a simple design, but I really like the red coloring on white, outlined in gold. This would make a great statement piece of jewelry. I actually can’t find this exact bracelet on the Hermes website (tears), but they have other lovely variations in different colors – I’ve included some of the others for you below.

Friday’s Most Wanted – & Other Stories heads to the US!

I read today in an article on Fashionista.com, that H&M will be opening 375 shops this year. Insane! Talk about some retail expansion. Another article also reported that the store & Other Stories owned by H&M will be opening a location in Soho. Very exciting news!

I took a look at the website, and just the homepage was exciting and inviting, especially with all the pastel colors for spring. This week’s most wanted, features several pieces from their online website, which ships only to 12 European countries right now, but the brand is working on an e-commerce website as we speak. Can’t wait!

& Other Stories, Cupro Trousers

& Other Stories, Cupro Trousers

I just love the front of these trousers! A little funk for work – perfect.

& Other Stories, Printed Clutch

& Other Stories, Printed Clutch

This little clutch caught my eye because of its fun and vibrant geometric pattern. Super cute.

& Other Stories, Cotton Cord Bracelet

& Other Stories, Cotton Cord Bracelet

I have a red Stella & Dot bracelet very similar to this one, and I wear it all the time. This simple cotton string bracelets are very in right now, and look very nice by their lonesome on the wrist.

Friday’s Most Wanted – Banana Top

Today’s most wanted piece is a Carven sweatshirt with a banana on the front. Why did I pick this piece, it’s a sweatshirt with a banana on the front (need I say more?)! I love that the banana design is tropical, and placed on a sweatshirt, which is meant to be worn for warmth – what an oxymoron. This would be a great piece to take on a vaca. Hope everyone has a great weekend and keeps warm!
