Last month I posted on Facebook asking about what brands I should feature on Momtrends (you are following on FB right!) and I heard MADEWELL! It was loud and clear. Yes, I am a fan, but I find the store hit or miss. Sometimes it can be too masculine for me. But I'm all about keeping you all happy.
I decided to make the look all about texture. Mixing feminine and masculine. Hard and soft. The dress is the best texture--sweatshirt material. Ultra soft. The jewelry is a mix of hard and soft. This week I mostly teamed up with Madewell to create this textured look.
Of course the dress I pick is pretty much sold-out, but this one is similar click here. The necklace is so cool, again a little edgier than I might normally pick, but now I totally love it. (click here to see Frame necklace)
The boots are Stuart Weitzman (ancient--but here's a similar) and the bracelet I am super excited to share--it's from Joseph Nogucci. Aren't they fabulous! He makes designer bracelets and IRIS signature glass beads and charms. I'm obsessed with his Buddha designs--I'll be gifting some this season!
