It's not a secret that I lean toward simple, clean clothing design. My house even reflects this same contemporary aesthetic. I'm thinking I need to visit Sweden more and more each day.

In all fashion seriousness though, my desire is to have timeless pieces that can be styled in a fashion forward way and will last a long time. That's why I really love ACNE. I feel like their clothing spans age groups, and can be easily dressed up OR down.

Think about it, you can add chunky jewelry and a fur vest to make it feel younger or add nothing to appear more mature and sophisticated. You can also add a leather jacket and motorcycle boots to look causal or strappy heels and cocktail rings for a night out.

ACNE also does a great job about thinking of the functionality of their clothing. The fabrics are quality, the cuts are comfortable, and there's always a designer detail touch suck as an asymmetric zipper to give a piece an edge.

This clothing brand gets overlooked, but I encourage you to check out their fall collection! I especially like to view designer clothes on because they show items by themselves, as well as in a styled look.

I Love L.A.M.B.

l.a.m.b.shoeGwen Stefani is a fashion icon and her label, L.A.M.B., is a great representation of excellent taste. The label takes classic silhouettes and bumps them up a notch without sacrificing quality. The fashion label's shoes and handbags are my favorite. Though they'll cost you a pretty penny, the leather used for the shoes and bags is premium quality. My mom just bought the pair of shoes pictured above off of Ebay for a steal. Not to mention, she has a tote bag that I've been coveting for the past year. If only I had size 8 feet and could walk in three inch stilettos (sigh).
