Brand Spotlight : For Love & Lemons
I checked out For Love & Lemons sometime ago and I thought the brand was ethereal personified. Their light, airy gowns and tops gave off the most glamorous air with hippie chic and high quality shining through. Glam hippie, if I have to give a term to For Love & Lemons, it would be that.
Reading up on the brand, everyone sang their praises for Coachella ready pieces but I'd say these pieces are perfect for date night, girls day and any other time where you'd like to shine and showcase your femininity. The 70's trend is one of the stand outs this seasons and you can stake your claim in reliving the glory days with pieces from the brand. I took to my favorite e-styling tool, Polyvore and put together a few looks that highlight some of the beautiful pieces from Gillian Rose Kern and Laura Hall.
This halter dress is so sexy with it's skin tone tulle and delicate yellow embroidery. This dress doesn't need much in the way of styling, you'd want it to be the star. I paired it with minimal sandals in a summery teal color and added a gold statement ring to edge things up a bit. A nude bag in a reptile print paired with citrine earrings keep the simple glamour vibe flowing nicely. You can just as easily style this dress with flat gladiator sandals and a braided headband to dial things down. Styling this piece for the sake of glam or the sake of hippie chic, it would surely do justice in your closet.
A red dress smolders, kind of like the last few embers in a fire. You know those last glowing reminders that a raging fire once resided here. A red dress is for a confident woman and this Mariposa Maxi Dress with it's sultry high split would frame your curves perfectly and give glimpses of skin, perfect for a night or day when you want all eyes on you. Since we're breaking necks with this look, let's add sky high gold sandals and a sword ear cuff. A perspex box clutch provides a touch of fun to a sultry look.
Let's go with the Coachella vibe and enjoy some great sounds with this look. This printed two piece look could easily be broken apart and paired with neutral separates. Breaking this look apart gives you more styling options which means more bang for your buck. A patent Doc Marten boot grounds this look. Every look doesn't have to be frilly and airy, in fact, adding heavy boots to a look like this will add a new dimension and maybe expose you to a different side of your own style. Small gold earrings add a bit of sparkle around the ears and a vintage medallion give the look an urbane appeal without being too literal. A black floppy hat does double duty by shielding you from the sun and completing the look at the same time.
For our final look, let's relive the days of Studio 54 and channel style icon Bianca Jagger. This white knit jumpsuit has orchids embroidered over it and is a delicate piece of clothing but we're going to make it funky ! Pairing this jumpsuit with gold platforms for starters brings the 70's to this look in a major way. From their we build up, repeating the gold look of the platforms in a statement cuff. This necklace that is made up of three layered necklaces keeps the gold party going and adds a little spark to your cleavage. This look with all of it's delicacy is still high on the sexy. Polishing things off with hoop earrings keeps it disco ready, not just any hoops mind you, but ones with sparkle and shine. Let this look take you out or to a great outdoors dinner spot.
