It’s Okay to Look: Van Mildert

I often find myself looking at clothes that are carried in stores outside of the US. I do believe that European fashion is somewhat different, and even though globalization’s got the best of this industry, there are still some differences and it’s totally okay to look!

Today I am going to look at Van Mildert, a chain of stores in the North of England (similar to our Nordstrom) with fashion, innovative product and lifestyle. I think UK was an obvious choice here regarding Kate Middleton and her perfect style! Catering for both men and women, these stores offer fashion across many platforms to the style and image conscious. Since 1996 they’ve been encapsulating all that is new and exciting within the fashion industry and showcase this product under one roof alongside some of the strongest and most relevant collections in the world. All stores offer a wide variety of collections to suit the broad clientele and are spilt across sections catering for young fashion, branded fashion, concept design, and premium sportswear.

But enough talking let’s do some looking 😉 That’s what we are here for after all! I was looking for fall 2013 and the first thing that I’ve noticed and really liked was the fact that every item is clearly labeled whether it’s the new collection or not! Thumbs up for that!

You can tell I am putting an outfit together here, can you not? 😉

I also think this Vivienne Westwood short coat would be perfect for fall:

I also spent some time channeling my inner child and went on the swings! I absolutely love it, and I am so happy there is a playground near by where I can go and be silly whenever I want 😉

Phones and their Outfits

Dior Phone Touch

The other day my husband told me about “lady” phones that he read an article on! I have to admit – you gotta love ars technica for their ability to reach out to everyone – both men and women!

Versace Unique Pop Pink

The whole idea of having a “ladyphone” seems rather stupid to me, because nowadays you can make any phone look like a “lady” by simply purchasing an appropriate accessory.

Gucci V3i Gold

 LG KE850 Prada

Why get something that not only looks stupid, but has horrible horrible features (You are horrible, horrible girls! – get the reference?), when you can get a nice designer cover for your iPhone or Blackberry (sorry, ever since I moved to the US the other brands ceased to exist)

Like glitter and sparkle? Knock yourself out with Swarovski cases:

Available from TheRedBirdDesignon Etsy

Funny story – when I was buying my iPhone the girl who was selling it to me suggested this case –

I love Michael Kors, but this particular design is too much – I don’t want to fiddle around, trying to get to my phone, even if it is in a secure little snake skin pouch like this vs. being thrown into the almost bottomless pit, which is my Zabars bag. Needless to say the girl didn’t own the iPhone or the case for that matter 🙂 And didn’t know who Micheal Kors was either.

Now Ted Baker has something a little more handy in all senses of this word:

But to be honest with you, I don’t even have a case for my phone, and neither am I planning on getting one! Maybe someday, when it becomes more of an accessory, than a necessity!
