Orla Kiely Designs

Orla Kiely Designs

About 3 years ago I found this amazing designer, Orla Kiely at Anthropologie.  I was so drawn to her vintage and simplistic prints.  I bought “the big zip wallet” for a $88.oo which usually is about 3 times my usual wallet budget.

AAAAAh3YMl4AAAAAATG-mw

  But let me  personally vouch for this London based designer!  This is by far the best, most durable, easy to clean, fits everything and cutest wallet I have EVER owned.  I was able to have it for a year and I could of had it longer if I kept it a little cleaner (my bad).  I bought another one this year (picture above).  I know many of her customers must be repeats!

     I get so many compliments on it and now her intriguing patterns have become increasingly popular!  Check out some of her stuff I posted below. Orla initailly started out with handbags and wallets and now has expanded to clothing and even a home line at target! (WATCH FUN VIDEO) This product is worth every penny.

    The quality is outstanding!  I don’t think I will ever get enough of her vision for an adorable and long lasting line of fashion items that embody a retro 60’s and 70’s conservative vibe with a modern vintage twist!

 Here’s an exerpt from her website : www.orlakiely.com:

The world of Orla Kiely is one where color, pattern, graphic control, texture and rhythm continually work and rework together. Orla has a unique, immediately recognisable design language, developed through graphic patterns that celebrate her optimistic spirit. As down-to-earth as her designs are popular, the key to what drives Orla is her fixation on the evolution of a signature style, devotion to quality and practicality.”

   Finally!  I think the reason I love this “Tulu” clutch from bevello is because the purple floral print on the strap  is so reminiscent of the Orla Kiely prints.  Bevello, online clothing boutique specializes in researching emerging independent designers such as “Tulu” that bring cuteness and joy into everyones closet!

    These little carry-arounds are so easy to adapt to any summer dress or outfit.  The colors are pastel and vintage.  In the summer, with the added heat you want to avoid lugging around anything superfluous and sweaty (ex. a big leather bag).  So trade in your heavy handbag for a vintage clutch this summer.  Hurry though! These are gonna sell like ice cream on a hot day!

Some things are just better off together:

*Peanut butter and Jelly

*Pencil and Paper

* Hammer and Nail

* Mickey and Minnie

*Ying and Yang

* Bee and Honey

* Strawberries and Chocolate

* Dumb and Dumber

Well you catch my drift.  At bevello we’ve recently stumbled upon our greatest combination to date…..

bevello and Cupcakes!

Yeah we think its pretty genius too!  We were out and about downtown Raleigh yesterday during our photo shoot with Cate and Ashley when we had an urge for something sweet, something decadent, something girlie…..and there it was laminated in the sunshine……

the cupcake shoppe bakery

We saw the trendy pink and brown vintage detail sign and we knew we had found a place where we belonged.  The windows were adorned in a spring rain theme.  Tulips springing forth from brightly colored rain boots on a green grass mat.

Walking in you feel instantly sweeter before your tongue has even tasted the fluffy cake and whipped butter cream.  Vintage style table and chairs and antique drop down light fixtures.  Something so minimalistic yet fresh, fun and feminine.  An antique cash register and crendensa are signs that its vintage but simultaneously hip on the modern trends (hmmm sounds kinda like us!)

Immediately one of our new arrivals’ called out to us “Put me on! and take pictures of me in here! I have found my home” (Yeah, dresses talking! this place has the kind of effect!)

So we did!  Ashley did the Ryu pink and brown silk vintage dress much justice (http://www.bevello.com/product_p/rd3253pk.htm).   With origami ribbon detail, a pleated empire waist and bubble bottom with a brown silk ruffle, it was surely as irresistible as the cupcakes on our plates.  We delighted our taste buds with the flavor of the week “Pink lemonade and the “Pretty in Pink.”  We were able to add some brilliant pictures to our site and get our sugar fix for the day.

Sarah Coleman owner and baker of the cupcake shoppe (www.thecupcakeshopperaleigh.com) welcomed us warmly with her support and applauded bevello for our new site.  We hope that Sarah with her beautiful cupcakes and bevello will make be another epic combination. Love is best when it is both given and received.  bevello fell in love today with the cupcake shoppe bakery and our brand new Ryu dress. We think the cupcake shoppe might love us back (blushing)

Basic tank meets vintage details with this oh-so-cute knit tank. This top features a true double layer of gray knit on top of white knit. Two swoops of vintage lace scoop along the neckline and tie into a tiny bow on the right side. The gray straps are gathered at the top with a two tone double layer ribbon on both sides of the tank. This tank is just begging for a cameo broach to complete that casual vintage look! (55% linen 45% cotton)

  Take it from me! This is a very high quality top!  I want it for my black cardigan with pleated detail I just bought. (http://bananarepublic.gap.com/browse/product.do?pid=650887002&tid=brfr1r)  And psssttt… here is the best part!  This top is a STEAL for only $35.00.  So get it before it’s gone!!  I know I am!

Talk to you tomorrow

bve,

mary
