Tibi Spring 2013

Tibi is a go to designer for me. I have countless killer dresses from the line, perfect for cocktail, wedding and work wear. My closet overfloweth.  Great quality, design, and price.

One of designer Amy Smilovic's calling cards has been the line's trademark bold color and print (another reason I am drawn to their pieces season after season).

Spring 2013's debut was a bit of a departure from the typical Tibi fair and I think that is positive change. It's a more refined, mature Tibi, which like a fine wine gets better and better with age, an apt analogy for a thirty something-er like myself.

Print was harder to find this season, but leather tops, separates and bright pastel hues were amply shown. There was also a lot of light, white washed denim injected into the mix, with positive effect.

Another line I am looking forward to hitting the stores. You can check out the show, and playlist below.

WCVB TV: Chronicle Fashion Forward Episode

Did you catch Chronicle last week? 

I am super excited to have been a part of the Fashion Forward episode, which aired Thursday.

They perfectly captured the tense relationship between a budding fashionista (moi) in need of red velvet smoking slippers, husband (a dapper Mr. MPChouChou), and new house, in need of a snowblower for the winter months. Hilarity ensued.

You can catch a clip of the segment here: WCVB ABC TV's "Chronicle" program; producer Sangita Chandra.

Also included? The lovely Liana of New Brahmin and Amy who talked about her latest fashion adventures with the Haberdash.

Not to be missed, compelling, TV.



Tweed & Cable

Yes, I already have the Jennifer Chun skirt in another outfit already. I told you to expect heavy rotation out of this number. 

I was half wishing I had the matching jacket from Jennifer, though, this mismatched jacket from Zara doesn't look half bad either. If it has an elbow patch, pretty much sign me up.

I am on the look out for something fabulous and tweedy (with elbow patches of course) for husband too. I saw a luxe, red tweed, investment worthy jacket at Gant last week- definitely stop in the new store and check out the fall collection from Michael Bastian (delightful lines for men and women). It is an exciting space and welcome addition to the Boston fashion scene.  Pretty much everything you need in tweed and to be perfectly fall ready.
