Rag & Bone Fall Layers

I've been almost hoping for Fall to come early and to take a trip to someplace seasonal just so I can wear it like the Rag & Bone fall collection.  

I'm dying for all those layers of scrumptious clothing worn piled on top of each other - the styling is brilliant!.

The Nordic knits are pretty awesome, too.  Good thing I thrifted some great ones last year. And my Dries Van Noten sweater will be coming out again, that's for sure.

Sick Jewelry - Abakus

I'm freaking out over Marsha Chun-Matsubara's Abakus line of jewelry.  I saw a pic of her in Elle magazine a couple of months back and completely loved her brilliant Zipper Sushi Brain necklace as well as the photo of herself wearing an amazing cross-body piece.  I had planned to replicate it but...

Her feather pieces would have gone great with a great black velvet wiggle dress with feather trim that I just sold on my Ebay store.

Here is a great interview with the designer from the W magazine blog including styling in an a couple of editorials with her feather pieces.
