The Miss Selfridge Mix
Amongst the many online retail sites that I browse on a regular basis for style inspiration is British high street brand Miss Selfridge. Fortunately, I've experienced shopping in their brick and mortar stores during trips to England and Scotland, although it's not even necessary since they ship to the U.S. While I easily do more browsing than buying when it comes to my online activity, it's nonetheless enjoyable to see how they present seasonal trends. A recent peek at their fall lookbook gave me inspiration for many potential fall outfits. Despite this crazy heat wave we're currently experiencing in southern California, I'm daydreaming about wearing floor length frocks, faux fur pieces, and glamorously embellished dresses. What appeals to me most about this lookbook is the array of luxe textures from the use of velvet, faux fur, knitwear, and shiny jewelry. It's quite the contrast from the emerging minimalist trend championed on the runways of Céline, Chloé, Calvin Klein, and Stella McCartney.
