That Extra Half An Inch

We just got in Victoria Beckham's book That Extra Half An Inch at Elodie. Naturally I have spent most of my night glancing through it and drooling over all the pictures. I cannot wait to read the entire thing and share with you all her tips and secrets! In the first page of her book she describes who she wrote it for and I thought she did a wonderful job proving how clothes can be so much more than just something you wear to keep warm....

"It's for girls who love fashion. Who love that magical transformation of material on a hanger into something that makes you want to twirl in front of a mirror, that gives you the confidence to think, You know what? I look great! Fashion is how we express our personalities. Our way of saying, 'This is who I am,' sometimes even, 'This is who I would like to be.' Most of all, fashion is about having fun and using your imagination."

Such a lovely gal.

Trend Alert: The High-Low Hem

My absolute most favorite trend out there right now are the dresses with the high-low hem. I am actually obsessed. I like the shirts and skirts that use this hem too, but I am a sucker for dresses. Anyways, this past weekend we went to market and picked up some gorgeous dresses with a high-low hem. I am so excited for you guys to see them once they arrive at Elodie. I think the structure is so feminine and just down right pretty. One of my favorite bloggers always has the most amazing outfits, but I think she looks so lovely in this high-low hem dress, don't you? I hope all you fashion-forward ladies are looking forward to trying out this new structure of dressing because once spring hits it will be everywhere!

New Melie Bianco Bag

I don't know about you, but I have been getting a little bit bored of the same old over-sized hobo bags that have seemed to rule the world the past few years. Designers have started to gear towards different structures and colors and I am super excited about it. At Elodie we just got in the Melie Bianco Madison Lock and Key Bag and I cannot stop thinking about purchasing it. I love that it is a smaller size; it makes finding things in my purse so much easier. And, how cute is that lock? I will admit I probably have one too many purses, but none in this amazing crisp burgundy color. Stop in soon to check out the rest of the Melie Bianco bags we picked up for fall!

These Boots Are Made For Walking

Although I would obviously prefer to be wearing five inch leopard print platform heels everyday of my life..sadly it is just not that practical with our Minnesota winter. SO what is the next best thing (and smartest)? Boots. There are so many different styles of boots made now a days that there has to be a style out there that you love. We got in three different styles at Elodie recently. My favorite are the chocolate brown equestrian boots. They even have fur in the inside; perfect for keeping cozy once the snow hits! Check them out and let me know which one are your favorite!
