The Floor Report: Plumes and Poms

Nov 11, 2010

Keeping the bohemian spirit alive, as I am known to do, becomes a bit more difficult during this time of year when my light-wash flare Current/Elliots and mounds of bangles are out of place among the tweeds, clean leather stiletto boots and peacoats emerging out of women’s closets all over the District. However, this gypsy girl has found details all over the stores this season that are an ode to far off lands and their fringy, furry, and feathered treasures.

Gucci Marrakech Bag ($2,290)

As John Legend makes an appearance at Tysons Galleria to open the new Gucci store, what better way to salute than with this fantastic “Marrakech” shoulder bag. The tan, the tassles, and braided handles are a gorgeous addition to any outfit, pairing flawlessly with neutrals and popping against any standby black classic cashmere you’re reaching for.

Tiger Lily jewelry collection always brings chic, dainty pieces that stand up to the textures of F/W. This feather necklace is one of my faves!

Not a necklace gal? Try these instead.

 

Gold Fill Featherstone Earrings (Tina Tang, $75)

Infinity scarves are here to stay, so you might as well enjoy the warmth that comes along with such an effortless trend. I have several from last season, but this time, my selection got an upgrade with irresistible rabbit fur. Chocolate brown and soft as silk, this amazing piece will be worn over the lapel of my jackets, doubled up for a snuggly thick neck warmer, and layered over silk blouses like a vest. Three ways to wear it and I’m sold!

Rabbit Knit Infinity Scarf (Intermix, $198)

This newsboy cap with a pom twist is just fantastic for blustery days or Saturday mornings.

If you don’t want to jump off the high-dive with these plumes and pom-poms, but would rather just get your feet wet, they look just as good on paper as they do in person.

Feather Desk Calendar (Paper Source, $12)

Miss M is a local retail and style consultant and Belle’s closest friend.  She occasionally shares her fashion wisdom and boho-chic style with the masses via Capitol Hill Style.  I know some of you wish she’d write more, but then, when would she have time to solve all of Belle’s personal problems?  No, it’s best that she sticks to her day job as Belle’s best girl friend.

The Range: Eyelet Tops for Summer

Airy eyelet fabrics are one of my favorite spring/summer looks. White is, of course, the traditional fabric. But white is tough to wear when you have a toddler, so let’s go with navy this summer.
