Sartorial Saturday–Tartan Trimmings

Time for a look at another piece from the Miss Candyfloss “Smile with Lucy” collection!

The Iliana-Bo is a wine-colored swing dress with tartan details. It’s a beautiful color for autumn, and I love tartan, especially one that is primarily grey!

The accessories were a little hard to pin down for this one…in the end, I decided on blue and brown Splendette duchess bangles and a gold locket brooch from Erstwilder, plus a hat and gloves in tan. I think this dress would also look great with dark green accents!

Update: It does, indeed, look great with green accessories!

I love the bold collar and square neckline:

I’m really enjoying wearing a statement ring over my gloves this fall!

Like all good dresses, it has deep pockets!

It’s such a wonderfully classic look!

There are only two more pieces from this collection that I’m waiting for…I hope I’m able to get both of them!

Sartorial Saturday–Smile with Lucy

I could not be more excited about the new Miss Candyfloss autumn/winter lookbook, “Smile with Lucy!” The entire collection is inspired by one of my favorite icons, the inimitable Lucille Ball.

The very first release from the collection included the Mandisa-Dora tartan swing dress, and as soon as I saw it, I fell in love:

The dress is made of a wool blend, which worried me a little, but somehow, it manages not to be itchy at all.

I accessorized with a few Splendette duchess bangles perfect for fall, and a lovely gold brooch from Erstwilder. I even got out my velvet gloves (even though it’s really too hot to wear them yet).

The tartan print is so pretty!

This is a great dress for early fall…even though it is a wool blend, it’s not heavy, and the short sleeves make it easy to wear while it’s still warm out.

I can’t wait for the rest of the collection to be released…everything in the lookbook is fantastic!
