They’re educating the insides of their heads, as they should, and not [dressing] the outside with a fancy hat or a dress. Simple clothes, that’s key, and I think that’s what the fashion world should really think about…Look at the lines waiting to get into that Apple store on 5th Avenue!

I’m not saying I’m looking forward to wearing sweaters, but I do love the look of a gauzy long-sleeved blouse with skinny jeans and booties, especially accessorized the way Reese has done with a long pendant necklace, a wide-brimmed fedora and major sunglasses. Winter can still blow me, but fall looks alright by me. Get the full look after the jump! Keep reading »

Etsy Spotlight: Owl Scarves For Your Inner Nature-Loving Hippie Goddess

Sometimes you just need to dress for your inner earth mama, and artist and designer Roza Khamitova’s cheerful line of scarves owl-inspired scarves will help you do exactly that. Each piece in her collection spreads out to show a feathered design based on Khamitova’s nature-based drawings, paintings and prints. I’m not sure if I could pull off having an owl’s face draped over my shoulders, but life is all about trying new things, right? Some of the other scarves in the line are a bit more subtle and attuned to the not-so-bold among us (like myself), so there’s a little something for everyone. I’m in love with the all those gorgeous, colorful details! [$120, Shovava]
