During Christmas time, my sister and I were shopping for Christmas presents one snowy evening when we decided to go into Bloomingdales. As we looked through the numerous sale racks and the variety of brands that were being circled by frantic wives and their seemingly depressed husbands, I finally feasted my eyes upon All Saints. I don't know about you, but I had never heard of the brand, and I became simply thrilled when I set foot in their little "corner store." But to my utter disappointment, my sister reminded me that we were not shopping for ourselves and we had to move on, but this was after we spent some time admiring their down-to-earth-grungy-style-with-a-twist-of-chic pieces (as I like to describe their brand.)
One of the things I like about All Saints is that it is not just suitable for people you are into Rugby and Free People (as it might look like it is), but their pieces include some classic, go with everything, business-like items. Also, this brand is rather recession savvy as it's prices aren't soaring to the sky like little space ships with peculiar mice on it that say "WEVE WON THE WORLD CUP!" (sorry that's a bit dramatic and random).
Tokyo Ditzy Dress
Montana Amikiri Dress
7 Curses Dress
The Parachute Short Dress
These are just some of the pieces that I found blog-worthy and will definitely be going in my "inspiration folder." While the first three have the same cut, I have found that I like that "fitted + flare" look. I am in love with the fourth dress, because just look at that pattern! And plus, I love how they called it "The Seven Curses," because it most certainly fits, as it has that stormy, mysterious, and wild feeling about it. This dress could be paired with a studded belt for school, or heels for a wedding/a dinner out. I'm liking it. And finally the last one just reminded me of my childhood, when my mother and siblings would play with this HUGE parachute in the park, and would wrap ourselves in the never ending game of getting across the parachute while other people swished it every which way. This dress makes me feel like dancing and if paired with soft necklaces, bangles and some fun yet simple heels, you would be set for an amazing night, never to be forgotten.
Hope this post spurred some inspiration for you!
