Fall Lookbook 2013 August 16 2013, 0 Comments
Fall is right around the corner and we can't help but get excited here at Lavendar! We are already getting our new arrivals from some of our favorite designers! In the south it's hard to start getting into the Fall mood because it's still almost 80 degrees here in September! That's why we've put together some looks that allow you to layer the cutest pieces for easy wear and perfect for any temps we may encounter!
This first outfit is a perfect day-to-night look! Booties haven't left the fashion world yet and this year you will see some pretty great styles from all designers. Our favorite?! Of course it's Sam Edelman and this Lucca bootie is great to dress up or keep it casual with jeans or leggings. We've paired them with this adorable BB Dakota Jade Dress! Forget all of your rules from the past and pull out those creams and whites for Fall and Winter! It's a lightweight sweater material that's comfortable and easy to wear. Throw on a denim jacket and you are set. We are IN LOVE with this Joe's Camo Jacket! Trendy and practical for Fall!
Oh hey beautiful maxi dress! This Gypsy 05 pinstripe maxi is a beauty! And yes you can wear it in Fall! The key to wearing maxi dresses for Fall is to keep the colors neutral and add layering pieces. We've paired it with this Jack by BB Dakota Estella Jacket. Throw on your favorite pair of booties, flats, or if the weather permits you can even wear those Summer wedges you don't want to put away just yet!
This jacket from Ella Moss makes us all giddy here at Lavendar! I mean seriously... They couldn't have made anything more perfect for Fall! The houndstooth print gives any outfit that extra umph! and mixing the fabrics like leather and wool/cotton is genius! It's like all of your favorite jackets mixed into one. And not to mention it's lightweight enough to layer and still keep you warm for those cool nights! You can wear it with anything you please but if you want to achieve that rocker chic look throw on a black tee (ours is from Joe's) and some distressed boyfriend jeans (True Religion) and ankle booties (Sam Edelman Louie) and you are set! We love to accessorize here so bring out those big, shiny gold earrings!
As girls we LOVE to dress up and wear fun accessories but sometimes you just gotta keep it casual! Especially if you're a full time mom or the traveling queen. What's so great about Fall is that boots are flat, leggings are comfortable, tops are neutral, and scarves (ours is Michael Stars) help accessorize any outfit! Mix all of these pieces together and you can achieve a CUTE and CASUAL look! The Tart 5-Pocket leggings are like wearing pajamas, which I don't know about you, but we're digging it! Plus it has pockets and belt loops so it looks like you're wearing a pair of skinnies and not tights. AND the number one rule with leggings is always wear a tunic or longer tee for coverage. It's also very flattering on every body type! This Three Dots Chiffon Panel Tee is perfect. It's long enough and has cute details so it's not just a basic tee. Our favorite thing about this look? Those combat boots! Light and comfy and so easy to walk in and right on trend with the military look. These are DV by Dolce Vita.
Like we said before, one of the best things about Fall is being able to layer different pieces. In this case we layered three different pieces with one outfit to achieve three different looks! A plaid flannel shirt is a staple item for everyone's Fall wardrobe. This one from Splendid is to die for! So soft and fits in all the right places. For the first look we added the Tart Rada vest for a more glam look... great for a nice dinner or out on the town! For the second we added the Sanctuary shirt jacket and it's just that.. can be worn as a jacket or shirt. This look is a little more on trend and can be dressed up or down. The last look is for a brave fashionista! Mixing prints is always in style and we can't get enough of this Splendid Leopard print pullover! All of these looks were paired with Joe's Skinny jeans and DV by Dolce Vita Pace wedge booties!
We hope you ladies are getting excited like us about Fall! It will be here before you know it and we can't wait to see all of our customers looking fabulous in their new pieces from Lavendar! And if you are out of town most of these items can be found on our online store here!

We can't help but take notice in all of the camo print for Fall! Everything from designer denim to basic tops to shoes! These slim ankle trousers boast a crackled camo print for a vintage-inspired look. With side slit pockets and zippers, these Joe's Camo Trouser pants are perfect for FALL! Pair them with a stylish blouse and pumps and you are set.

Lavendar's Top 5 Trends for Fall! September 05 2012, 0 Comments
It's almost time for that first crisp cool day of FALL that we all crave after the hot, balmy weather of Summer!! So you know what that means...break out the layering tees, leggings, skinny jeans and boots!!! The lavendar girl's have picked out some of their favorite trends for Fall that you'll see this season on your favorite celebs, in all the Style magazine's and in-store at Lavendar SOON!!!
Every year some form of the "bootie" comes along and takes over every woman's closet out there!! Last year it was the knee-high boot, and although you'll see them again this year, you'll see more and more celebrities strutting their stuff in the short bootie! Last season's styles, and the season before that (the riding boot) are still in style, so don't fret!!! You'll get lots of wear out of both this season, but the the ankle bootie is getting all the rage!! From updated classics, to suede with fringe, you'll see all kinds of variations in this bootie. Our personal favorite...(drum roll!!!)...the western style with a little sass of fringe. We have these Sam Edelman Louie fringe ankle booties in-store now for $160 in Cocoa and Putty!!! They can be worn with those cute summer dresses you just can't seem to give up for Fall and still rock them with those new pair of skinny jeans you've been dying to strut around town!!!
It seemed like Spring and Summer dumped a big assortment of color into our closets all at once...we aren't complaining, it's one of our favorite trends!!! We LOVE denim and will always be in love with the classic dark wash for Fall, BUT we aren't going to lie, we were a little excited to see that the colored denim "trend" is coming back into our lives for Fall!! From cobalt blue, to neon pink and a little bit of burnt orange to match those falling leaves, these colored skinnies are going to be everywhere!! Pair them with a riding boot and oversized sweater for a more casual look or dress them up with your favorite pumps and classic v-neck tee and leather jacket for that night on the town with your besties!! Our personal favorite is the Hudson Nico Skinny in "Blue my Mind," $145.00 and in-store NOW!! But if Hudson isn't your go-to jean, don't worry, we have black cherry in Sanctuary for $138, Paige in Deep Purple for $178 and more Joe's colors coming soon!!!
What better way to show off your new colored denim for Fall than pairing it with the must-have denim tops for Fall!! This trend really entered our wardrobes this Spring but has managed to make it's way into Fall! Bella Dahl offers trendy, comfy "men's shirts" in all styles and colors...so we've filled the store with them in every color, $101!! Our favorite thing about this trend is the variety of washes the "denim" tops are available in! Pair a lighter colored wash with your favorite pair of dark colored skinnies (hint, hint...your black cherry Sanctuary's!) or go with an edgy look and pair a darker wash top with black or grey skinnies (our favorites of course are Citizen of Humanity in Hound for $209 in-store NOW!! Any way you decide to rock this new trend, you'll look like your ready to walk the streets of New York in style!!
If there is one classic in your closet that WILL NEVER go out of style, it's faux fur! Not only does it keep you cozy and warm on those frigid nights in the cool winter weather, but it makes you look like a fashion maven in the making!! Our personal favorites this year are from designers Ella Moss, Tart, and 525 America!! We'll have different variations of this must have for Fall in all different colors, prices and styles! Wear your fur casual during the day with your favorite layering tee, skinnys and riding boots or dress it up at night with black leatherette skinnys and black pumps!!
From runway shows to style magazines, leather is where it's at this season!! Real or fake, it's safe to say that leather is going to be your "go to" item for Fall. You can play it safe with a riding boot like our new riding boot from Dolce Vita that are $215.00 or go edgy with the hottest trend, leatherette denim!! Plus, this is also a great chance to pull out that awesome leather jacket from your closet that is in style EVERY season!! This trend is going to look great with button up sheer tops like the ones from Olive & Oak that will be in stores soon that only retail between $60 - $80!!
