These yummy images are part of Mr. Ford’s subtle and secretive launch back into womenswear. Ford held a “no photos allowed” show in September, but he will share a video from the show in December. I can’t wait to see more!! I am loving that animal print and the colors and textures are exquisite.

I, along with the rest of the fashion world, am obsessed with these vibrant reds that seem to be emerging. Is it a holiday thing? I am not sure, but..I found this great “Life in Red” photo story at National Geographic. Enjoy!

Free People knows lace..these lovely pieces are all from their November catalog. I think the first dress, the Victorian Loves Lace Dress, is my favorite. Which is yours?

I love beautifully designed calenders and couldn’t help but share this one from United Bamboo. The label modified looks from their ready-to-wear collection for these fancy felines and included a little kitty bio for each. I am normally not a “dress your pet” kind of girl, but the prints and graphic layout are so beautiful that I just had to share! The calender, which was photographed by Noah Sheldon and designed by Studio Lin., is available for preorder.

This AWESOME photo shoot is from the latest issue of Stockholm. I recently learned of this magazine and I am totally in love..they have a video of the entire magazine at their site so check it out. This particular spread was shot by Thomas Klementsson and styled by Nike Felldin.
