Get Floating With Missoni

The Butterfly

Get ready to float away this summer with the Missoni x FUNBOY collaboration.  When a city girl (without a pool) is dreaming of ways to stay cool and with time to flip through some online fashion sights then fun things are found.  Check out Missoni’s take on FUNBOY’s original butterfly wing pool float.  Keeping true to Missoni’s bold usage of color and pattern, the float is fabulous, fun, and Missoni all the way.  Don’t wait too long or the next drop will also sell out.  FUNBOY has the market cornered with the coolest and chicest pool accessories.

A dress for all you lovely ladies!  I am so in love with color these days.  Just take a peek at the ARoss Girl x Soler collaboration.  It is one to dream about.  Spotted on Net-A-Porter of course on this rainy day.  These stunning dresses come with a price tag but I am certain you could come with a handful of reasons to warrant your purchase (think cost per wear).  Then you will find yourself twirling in one over excitement.  A midi length is not always the easiest to pull off but with the help of a block heel or neutral strappy sandal you are well on your way.  The maxi just needs a sweet flat.  These dresses are playful, colorful, pretty, feminine, and timeless.  It is that one dress that would never need dusting off.  So pretty! Bravo!!

A Textile Love Affair With ace & jig

It is all about collaboration!  This is absolutely true with Carey Vaughan and Jenna Wilson, the two ladies behind ace & jig.  They met years ago as fashion design interns then fast forward to being reunited over their absolute love around antique textiles.  ace & jig is where pattern playing is at its best!  The more you experience the pieces the more you fall in love.  Every piece has its own personality and is waiting to be worn and enjoyed.  The colors and patterns can make even the most conservative lady branch out of their comfort zone.  ace & jig are timeless pieces that you build upon.  They don’t read in the moment trend and they don’t read boring!  They are effortless.  You can layer, wear alone, and mix and match any piece.  ace & jig has no rules except that you must love what you own if not then swap it with another ace & jig fan.
