Get into the Swing of Spring with Orla Kiely

Watching this video fills me up with sunshine and then makes me want to sneeze. Orla Kiely gracefully shows her S/S 2013 collection in this airy film. I love the  styling and the twirling of the model throughout. Watch it and see lemons being thrown at no one, a monocle being used as a fashionably cute prop and cool 60’s architecture in the background. You’ll fall in love with the song”Darlin” sung by Erika Spring of Au Revoir Simone. The music keeps on going  and going after the film ends, its all so dreamy. I want to fall asleep in Palm Springs. Check out the rest of the S/S 2013 collection here.

Vintage Fashion Expo Review

Over the weekend me and a friend attended the Vintage Fashion Expo that was held in Santa Monica. The weather was nice and sunny and there was lots of traffic on our way over to the west side of Los Angeles.  Inside the expo we found many vintage items that were on sale, mainly clothing and accessories and some vintage fashion magazines. We saw many dresses every girl would admire. Below are some photos  from the show! My favorite is the Oscar De La Renta Vintage Dress!
