You Need to Know About Jackson Rowe

Bella Maas

jackson rowe As the temperatures drop, we find ourselves gravitating towards all things warm and cozy - and what gives you more warm fuzzies than a beautiful love story?

Vancouver designer Julia Hoover created her Scarf and accessory line Jackson Rowe after being inspired by her grandparent's love story.  Jack was a musician and Rose was his muse, he wrote all his lyrics about her and their bond was unbreakable. Does it get any better than that?!

The beautiful collection of scarves will bring you warmth and comfort - especially after knowing the incredible story behind the designs. The fabrics vary from acrylic to wool, to cashmere and silk blends and they are all oversized to allow for lots of wrapping. This gives luxurious volume and maximum warmth.  The prints range from classic plaids to Aztec, Navajo, bohemian, and Peruvian patterns. The price points are around $40 - $75.

At Bella Maas we love to support local Canadian designers that make beautiful high quality products.

Take a peek of some of the scarves we have in store now for fall - can you feel the love?

Winter Blooms

Bella Maas

This year, many designers have decided that floral prints aren’t strictly reserved for Spring. The juxtaposition of colorful blooms against other dark wintry colors are just what we need to lighten our spirits despite the gray skies and dropping temperatures. So this week we had Carrie Selin, and her beautiful smile, brighten up some winter outfits you can look forward to slipping into. We selected two beautiful silk print blouses by Rebecca Taylor that really hit the mark on the frosty floral trend and constructed two subtly different outfits layering a blazer and a leather jacket.

Outfit #1 | Frosted Blooms

The first blouse is a long sleeve with a frost flower print, half button placket, double patch pockets and a shirttail hem. It is great for layering or on its own for a holiday party or evening out. We paired it with a moto leather jacket, skinny jeans and a great pair of cut out heels for a more relaxed vibe with a bit of edge.

Meet our Stylists! – Olivia

Bella Maas

This week’s is all about one of our in store stylists – Olivia! One of the perks of working in store is getting to know a lot more about the brands and seeing first hand how they fit and wear on all our clientele’s unique body types - and of course always being on top of the trends and knowing what’s new. So for this reason, we had Olivia pick out some of her most loved pieces and put together some outfits that a lot of women could get some serious wear out of.  

Outfit #1 | Gilet Vest Glam

 

In this sweater weather, nothing feels better than to cozy up in something warm and snuggly. Which is why we are going to do you a favour and introduce you to our angora Gilet emu vest by Lee & Birch. It is made with merino wool with an angora fur front so it is perfect for autumn winter weather. Wear it with a light sweater and skinnys for even more warmth on chilly days. We kept it clean and simple underneath with a mid rise skinny jean by Joe's jeans and one of our 'go-to' layering tops by C’est Moi. For accessories, we enriched the colour palette with the warm chocolate brown ‘Millie’ hobo handbag and ‘Kioni’ tweed boot, both by Ugg Australia and Love pouch necklace by Jackson Rowe.

Bag: Millie Hobo handbag by UGG $295

Boot: Kiono tweed boot by UGG $225

Necklace: Love Pouch Jackson Rowe $55

 

Outfit # 2 | Safe and Sound

 

Olivia chose this look because all 3 pieces are a no brainer. Each garment is so versatile because they make a perfect outfit altogether, as well as individually - because you can style them with just about anything. The printed blouse by Charlie Jade is great for work worn under a blazer and it easily transitions to evening with the amazing back cut out and zipper detailing. To dress the blouse up even more, tuck it into a great pencil skirt. Olivia chose the black skinny jeans and ankle booties as the “perfect fall essentials” for your wardrobe because they seriously go with everything.

Chic Every day of the Week

Bella Maas

Back on the scene we have Dez Melenka, the CTV news reporter who showed off 2 striking dresses that we layered with vests and cardigans earlier this season. This week, we styled two more casual outfits that used two important prints for the 2014 fall season: camouflage and plaid. These looks capture a very Canadiana, outdoorsy vibe, but with a stylized twist! Outfit #1 | Camo Cutie

Let’s be real, it’s no secret that Albertans love their camouflage print. If you want to incorporate this hot trend, we suggest elevating the camo pattern by opting for a softer fabrics or a more fitted cut - to maximize the femininity of the garment. We love this camo cargo by Michael Kors because they can be dressed up or down with either a flat or heeled shoe. We kept the rest of the look neutral with a ¾ length sleeve top in black and added an amazing open toed bootie.

Outfit #2 | Fire Starter

The second look is based around this perfect plaid shirt by Rails LA, which is our pick as a 2014 fall essential. We layered it with this fiery cami and a washed denim skinny jean, which we cuffed, to show off the tweed boots. Dez loved how all the fabrics and colors came together to create an effortlessly cool cottage inspired look, that is perfect for a weekend out, or a (ultra chic) trip to the mountains. Of course, it wouldn’t be complete without this midnight blue leather moto jacket by Doma, and a great pair of TOMS aviators.

We love the unique style of these handbags but also the durability and functionality. The nylon is strong and easy to clean – did we mention water proof?

Follow Her Lead

Bella Maas

Take 2! After modeling two beautiful dresses this month, we had Michelle from the St. Albert Leader pick out two casual day looks from our new arrivals. Both outfits were selected to be functional and comfortable on a busy day, while looking effortlessly radiant at the same time. We chose to show off two great outfits to match two different styles of boots we received for fall! bella maas edmonton st albert sherwood park jeans boots blouse print fall 2014 fashion toms 01

Outfit #1 | Zero to Hero

We’ll be honest, the first outfit took a little convincing... At first Michelle was unsure if the print on the blouse was “too loud” for her, but after trying it on paired with our stretch black pant and fabulous knee length boot – it instantly became the hero. This helps to illustrate an important lesson ladies, that often time it takes trying a garment ON to find out how it looks on you. Step outside your comfort zone and try something new whether it be a new silhouette or bold pattern. You will thank us later when that item becomes your new go to item! To complete the look we accented the color palette with a jade green wrap bracelet, perfect aviators and a cross body bag.

Outfit # 2 | Boho Navajo

The second day look is relaxed and comfortable, but accented with bohemian inspired details to keep it fresh and modern. We kept it neutral underneath with a basic tank and stretch corduroy in navy, which we cuffed, and layered our BB Dakota Navajo inspired open cardi. The black wedge ankle bootie ties in perfectly with the fringe detail and it is a comfortable option for a heel. To keep it outdoorsy, we layered two necklaces, an ax and arrow and a bold berry handbag.

This just in!

Bella Maas

This just in, CTV news reporter Desiree Melenka stopped by our boutique to shop and share her favorite items from our newest arrivals. Dez is no stranger to wearing a dress and heels to work, so we decided to add some punchy prints and layers to change up her usual suspects.

Outfit # 1 | Killing it in Camo

Desiree’s first look is built around this amazing camo print dress by Michael Kors.  The camo print is small, which makes it more feminine and actually allows her to stand out in a crowd – not blend in. Because camo is typically a masculine print, we made sure to pair it with sophisticated heels and accessorized it with a bold metallic necklace, Beverly Hills inspired sunglasses, and a knockout handbag. The long cardi has a great heathered yarn that also provides dimension and completes the rich fall palette.

Outfit #2 | Leather + Lace ups

Her second look is an ultra-fem, geometric-print dress with edgy accessories.  We love this moto zippered vest for fall because it's so versatile. Add it to a tank dress, a long sleeve knit, or a sweater to amp up your look. We tied in black leather for the rest of the look by adding this double-strap satchel by Nine West and Neosens' Gamay lace-up ankle booties with lace inlet detail. Dez loved the stacked accessories look using our beaded bracelets and this long, shark tooth necklace to elevate the look.

Indian Summer Indulgence

Bella Maas

Michelle Barstad, from the St. Albert Leader, brightened our boutique yesterday with her infectious energy. The beautiful sunny weather had her gravitating towards two beautiful dresses, so we decided to soak up the sun and style her to match the incredible burst of sunshine we've seen lately. Buzz kill: nights will get chillier in October, but don't fret - both dresses can easily transition to fall by adding tights and a cardigan or cropped jacket!

fashion bella maas boutique st albert sherwood park alberta shop dress classy comfortable 01 fashion bella maas boutique st albert sherwood park alberta shop dress classy comfortable 02

Outfit #1 | Comfortably Classy

Michelle’s first look is elegant, yet unpretentious. The dress, by Angel Eye, is made with ultra soft jersey cotton using contrasting black and berry panels in asymmetrical patterns. We love it because the colour contrast highlights her waistline nicely, but it has stretch, so its super comfortable.  To complete the look we kept it classic with pumps by Nine West and a Deux Lux wristlet clutch and a gorgeous Michael Kors watch. This look is great for work or an evening event!

  •       Angel Eye dress $82
  •       Michael Kors watch $300
  •       Nine West “Danee” pump $120
  •       Deux Lux Atlantis wristlet clutch (on sale!) $57.00

Outfit # 2 | Rose Walk

Her second look is a classic, a line silhouette dress with a bold graphic floral print.  Note how the playful open back is designed with a higher neckline in front to keep it balanced. We selected the nude pumps to elongate her beautiful legs and keep the attention on her confident smile, and finished it with a sequinned clutch and necklace that sits perfectly at the collarbone to frame her face.

To adapt this look, try pairing the dress with black tights, ankle boots and a leather jacket.

Fashion With Verve

Bella Maas

We had the pleasure of dressing up the lovely Stacie Christensen and Taylor McLeod of Verve Salon and Spa in Sherwood Park. These two girls really knocked it out of the "park" with two fabulous outfits that are perfect for the poor weather we have been having lately. While the outfits are a bit different from one another, they both made use of funky fall patterns and accents that are seasonally appropriate. Taylor | Funky Fall Fun

The two things that immediately stick out in this ensemble are the printed leggings and the Jackson Rowe scarf. The print on the leggings look just like watchful eyes and the vibrant colours, like the golden yellow of the scarf, contrast with the black of the tee and boots. For a finishing touch, we added another gold piece, the Michael Kors watch, and the perfect boho-chic love pouch necklace for all your soul-searching needs!

Stacie | Simplicity? Not Quite!

This is a seemingly simple layered fall outfit on first glance, but when you take a closer look, you'll notice some accented symmetry that really proves it's all in the details. Take a second look at the colours of her nails, plaid shirt, and watch: they all match! Now that's dedication colour coordination at its finest.

Note: Stacie is a Nail Technician which is probably why her nails absolutely rock!

Scrapbook Queen, Lookbook Dream

Bella Maas

This week, the scrapbooking queen of St. Albert, Dawn Pritchard of the Inked Stamper, graced our Sherwood Park store with her charm, as she took the time to model some hot looks for fall. Like the art of scrapbooking, we mix and matched an array of treasured garments and put together some well-rounded looks on this wonderful woman. Outfit #1 | Casual elegance at its finest.

Her first outfit is a great, casual day look with a twist. We paired the graphic oversized sweater with a classic skinny jean, rolled it at the cuff and finished the look with a fantastic pair of eye-catching black cage heels. To complete the look, we added a menswear-inspired Michael Kors watch and the perfect bag for Dawn, a working mom on the go. The Mat and Nat Wellington bag in berry has a classic shape with clean lines and is large enough to hold all her daily essentials. This handbag adds a touch of colour for fall and can also be worn cross-body when her hands are full.

Outfit #2 | Edgy moto Mamma.

Dawn fell in love with this Doma moto jacket in an earthy moss colour, so we amped up her look to create an edgier outfit that could easily transition her from day to night. We layered a delicate knit sweater over a solid tank and  added the croc embossed legging in olive for bottoms - we love the tone-on-tone croc finish because it's a more subtle way to incorporate prints into any outfit. For the finishing touches, we chose a great zippered shoe to balance the jacket, and added this fierce bullet necklace.

Fall Fun With Social Lite

Bella Maas

Summer is just about over, the days are getting shorter, the weather is getting colder, and that means one thing: fall is around the corner. Fall is often seen as one of the most dynamic and exciting seasons for fashion because with it brings ample opportunity for layering different types of clothing, scarfs, boots, heavier leathers, sweaters and patterns like plaid, stripes and camo. Our model today is Krysta from Social Lite, a communications agency that focuses in social media, online communications, digital media and events. Social Lite will often help us shoot and prepare our blog. She is showcasing  three outfits that show off exactly the fun you can have in fall.

You can find out more about Social Lite by visiting their Facebook or Twitter.

Outfit #1

Did we mention leather and layering? Because that is exactly what this outfit screams. Three pieces of gorgeous leather from head to-toe. The outfit is completed with a button-down peeking its way through the Three Dot Crew Neck Sweater. You want fall style? This is it!

  • Joes Dharma Skinny $218.00
  • Ugg Blaney High Top Shoes $190.00
  • Michael Kors Black Leather Jacket $495.00

Outfit #2

Whether you're going back to school or back to business, this outfit will have you turning heads in either place.  The Peau De Loup button up is menswear inspired but made for women. To top that off, every shirt sold goes to helping the Freedom Factory Alliance, which promotes socially compliant factories that respect their worker. This is achieved in three ways: first, with a direct $1.00 contribution to the Al-Ihsan Women's Vocational Center in Bangladesh; second, through an education initiative that educates a girl at Al-Ihsan for every 5 shirts sold; and last, through the social awareness pamphlets that are contained within each bag attached to a Peau De Loup shirt.

Tied around Krysta's waist is a Michael Kors Mohair Camo Sweater. Camo is still very much "in" and is slowly seeping its way into everyone's wardrobes. The mohair is not only comfortable, but will keep Krysta warm throughout fall and into winter.

  • Peau De Loup Templeton Short Sleeve Button $68.00
  • Richard Skinny Skinny Ankle Peg Pant $190.00
  • Michael Kors Long Sleeve Mohair Camo Sweater $145.00

For our models this week, we have the return of Marnie Ashcroft, owner and founder of Edmonton-based Glow Juicery, a juicery dedicated to achieving a sense of wellness, fullness, and true health through the use of the most natural and nutrient-rich, veggie and fruit-based juices. Joining her is Olympic gold medalist Jamie Sale, who recently teamed up with Marnie Ashcroft as a partner of Glow. Jamie Sale, being an Olympic-level figure skater, is someone who has always been passionate about fitness and health and this makes her a great ambassador, partner, and proponent of Glow Juicery. Together, they hope to bring those interested in personal health and wellness that much closer to achieving their goals.

Don't hesitate to find out more at their Facebook page HERE or their website HERE.

The two outfits they're each sporting are broken down into two very different days that call for two very different outfits. The first pair of outfits would go perfectly on a late night affair that may typically land on a Friday. Both are elegant, knee-length dresses with tastefully chic jewellery and sophisticated heels. These outfits are ideal for when you want to look your best without being over the top. Simple. Tasteful. Elegant.

Marnie - Friday Outfit (sitting down) - Bailey 44 Drop Kick Dress $230.00 - Mimi + Marge $30.00 - Kenneth Cole Reaction - Ham Away $110.00

Jamie - Friday Outfit (standing up) - Red Haute Drape Back Maxi Dress $138.00 - Nine West Camya Heel $130.00 - Wolf Circus Necklace $54.00

The second pair of outfits Jamie and Marnie are wearing you would typically wear on a relaxing Sunday afternoon in the sun. Pieces like a jean jacket or a sun hat are fun and playful yet stylish and up-to-date.

Jamie - Sunday Outfit (sun hat) - Pink Martini Connect The Dots $82.00 - Nine West Rocha Heel $120.00 - D & Y Small Woven Sun Hat $34.00 - Elizabeth Necklace $90.00

Marnie - Sunday Outfit (jean vest) - Splendid Ombre Dress $184.00 - AG Twilight Vest $280.00 - Lisbeth Necklace $90.00 - Two Good Trends Bracelets $30.00 each - Fossil Sydney Stripe Topzip $118.00

Check back next week for part 2 of the Glow Juicery girls in some must-have outfits.

Sophistication in Summer

Bella Maas

With the scorching weather we have been been receiving in YEG and the greater surrounding area, it can sometimes be difficult to find a sophisticated look that won't leave you gasping for cooler weather. That's why we put together three looks that you can both stay cool and look your best in: the Romper, the Maxi dress and the White Jean. Outfit #1

Jumpsuits were huge in a ton of runway collections for the spring and summer. They are the romper's more sophisticated sister (and somehow, more bohemian, just look how well that D&Y scarf matches). It's when you want the laid-back look of a romper, but you still want to look professional.

Splendid Jumpsuit $210.00

Mia Castaway Sandal $65.00

Pika & Bear Dragonfly Necklace $30.00

D&Y Folded Leaves Scarf $25.00

IMG_8851 IMG_8854

Outfit #2

There are some who think that combining black and white leads to an endless combination of perfect looks. You can do anything with the two colours and still coming out looking good. Pair this fail-safe colour match with the trend-safe maxi dress and you have the recipe for the Bailey 44 Pollack Dress!

Bailey 44 Pollack Dress 198.00

UGG Aubray Sandal $125.00

Sasha Eillena Stone Necklace $90.00

Two Good Trends Bracelets $15.00 Each

Outfit #3

White jeans are the quintessential go to summer jean and this is the way to rock them to their full potential. White jeans should almost always be fitted and heels are usually preferable. Since you're going for a fitted pair and they will compliment your silhouette, try contrasting them with a looser flowing blouse. This Charlie Jade top is a great choice and the turquoise adds that a little extra summer glam!

Charlie Jade Top $158.00

Rich & Skinny Jeans

Neosens Ankle Strap Pump $220.00

Lizbeth Necklace $68.00

Two Good Trends Dragonfly Bracelet $15.00

St. Albert Staff Picks!

Bella Maas

  This week, in a very special edition, we're joined by our very own Jill and Erin of the St. Albert store. We asked them to put together two outfits each and model them for the blog. Our staff are surrounded by clothing all day, so it's no surprise that they picked some stellar outfits to model, so let's jump right into it.

Jill

In Jill's first two outfits, she displays how to create two different outfits with the same Hudson Bacara jeans. The first outfit matches the two reds of her flats and the exquisitely distressed Wildfox Seeing Stars Sweater. If you ever wanted a lesson in top-down matching, this is it. The second outfit is a classic summer look that you have seen all over the place and it's a classic for a reason: it's comfy and it looks great! Outfit #1

Wildfox Seeing Stars Lennon sweater: $290 Hudson Bacara Crop Straight Cuff: $275 Nine West Facinate Flat: $90 Pika and Bear Magnifying glass necklace: $44

Hudson Bacara Crop Straight Cuff: $275

Erin

Erin's first outfit is both playfully geometric and elegant with the scarlet sandals perfectly complimenting the small amount of red in the keyhole dress. The second outfit is an idyllic summer dress with the perfect accompanying ensemble. The bright and vibrant colouring of the dress, the shopper purse, and the pumps are picturesque for any summer outdoor event.

Outfit #1

Gypsy Desouk Bamboo Keyhole Dress: $170 Mimi and Marge necklace: $85 Michael Kors watch: $300 UGG Aubray sandal: $125

Fit + Fierce

Bella Maas

This week we have double the girls and double the fun. Danielle and  Kelsey are rocking two spectacular outfits each and are bringing cuteness and glam to a whole 'nother level. Danielle Reed is a Certified Daring Way Facilitator (a curriculum developed by Brené Brown) and Life Coach. Kelsey McQueen is a personal trainer from Alberta Fitness. Together they are Fit + Fierce, a youth workshop aimed at girl's grades 4-12. It combines Danielle's expertise in mind wellness with Kelsey's expertise in fitness and nutrition to promote strength in both the mind and body.

To read more about Danielle Reed you can see her website, Coach On The Go, HERE. And to check out Kelsey McQueen's fitness services, her website, Alberta Fitness, can be found HERE.

Kelsey's first outfit is the epitome of a maxi dress done right: timeless stripes, black and white, and elegance length. Fashion tip: horizontal stripes are almost always preferable over vertical.

Kelsey's second outfit and Danielle's second outfit are the same idea executed in two completely different ways. It's the small black dress. Danielle's focusing on a downplayed style that is ideal for an outdoor summer day and Kelsey's a little more bougie for a more serious event.

The last outfit is a classic for an Albertan summer for obvious reasons. What is specifically appropriate for this post, because our lovely models work together to combine fitness and fierceness is the bracelet. It separates into two pieces and can be given to another person to wear and cherish.

Hot, Hot, Heatwave

Bella Maas

This week, we have with us Traci Chrysler of "The Best Version Of You", which is a Facebook page that aims to bring inspiration, fitness and clean, healthy living to you so that you can live the best version of yourself. You can like and find it HERE. Now let's see what the amazing Traci is wearing this week! The weather right now is probably in that peak high temperature zone for the summer, so we have three summer outfits that will no doubt make all your friends jealous.

Outfit #1

This paisley-esque Laundry Flower Jersey Necktie Dress is the ideal weight and thickness for a hot summer day or night. On top of that, one can never get too nostalgic over the flower-child design  of the dress and the summer festival mystique it gives off.

  • Michael Kors Watch $300.00
  • Laundry Flower Jersey Necktie Dress $300.00
  • Harriet Grey Earrings $21.00
  • PIKA and Bear Bracelet $28.00
  • UGG Natassia $120.00

Outfit #2

This outfit is a great lesson on matching 101. That is because it's subtle and you don't immediately notice that it is the matching that takes it to the next level. Sure the jeans are fantastic, but the bracelet, the top and heel not only match visually, but so too does their flow in regards to the rest of the outfit.

  • Alden Ray Bracelet $48.00
  • Parker Caroline Top $265.00
  • Bessy Leather Strap Heel $165.00
  • AG Middi Ankle Denim $285.00

Outfit #3

Don't let anyone tell you that you have to be uncomfortable to look good. This outfit proves to anyone who believes that that they are completely wrong! The Splended Jumper is super comfy and as shown, still goes great with a beautiful heel.

  • Splended Jumpsuit $209.00
  • Austin Nine West Heel $110.00
  • PIKA + Bear Necklace $37.00
  • House of Harlow Ring $90
  • TOMS Sunglasses Kitty $165.00

Fashion Physio Part 2

Bella Maas

We're back! Hope everyone had a wonderful mid-week holiday for Canada day! Last week, we had Anita Cassidy of St Albert's Leading Edge Physiotherapy. This week, we have the second half of our Leading Edge shoot with owner Heidi Fedoruk. We had the pleasure of putting together three very different, but equally gorgeous outfits for Heidi to look amazing in. Outfit #1

The blog touched upon the "boho-chic" look last week and here's another version of it. This time, though, it's boho-chic classed up a notch by some stunning golden accessories and a cute little clutch. Its Bohemian meets Gala opening and its terrific summer fashion fun.

Michael Kors Watch $300.00 Two Good Trends $30.00 Laundry Jersey and Lace Twist Dress $275.00 C PAK Bracelet $15.00 Nine West Spring Bloom Shopping Bag (clutch comes with a larger "shopping bag") $100.00

Outfit #2

This look is an office favourite. Its elegance is downplayed and subtle, not too glaring or "out there" which makes it just right for an office or work space where you don't want to attract too much attention but you still want to look your best. Here are more tips: keep your colour palette downplayed but warm, try not to wear anything too extravagant, and shirt prints or designs should be minimal.

Luxe Sateen Super Skinny $220.00 Sleeveless Silk Top Rebecca Taylor $298.00 Fancie Fay Wedge Slingback Ninewest $140.00 Michael Kors Watch $300.00 Crystal Orb Ring / House of Harlow $118.00

Outfit #3

Now this outfit is just simply gala opening meets gala opening. It oozes sophistication and class with a timeless mixture of black and white.

Thanks again to Heidi and Anita for being amazing models for us and be sure to stop by Leading Edge Physiotherapy !!!

Today, we had the pleasure of outfitting Anita Cassidy from Leading Edge Physiotherapy in St, Albert. Anita, a physiotherapist who received her masters from the University of Alberta in Physical Therapy, shows us that she isn't all brains, but a total beauty as well! We gave her two outfits to model and she looks like she was born to wear them both. Two on-trend looks that will get people talking. Here they are: Outfit #1

This is a back-to-the-basics look that isn't trying to be anything extravagant but is simply stylish. Neutral colours, a non-aggressive wedge, and a denim jacket layer thrown on top. Everyone should have something similar in their closets. But what always separates a basic good look from a boring plain look are the accessories.

Michael Stans Slit Neck Dress $164.00 Hudson Glam Jean Jacket $265.00 UGG D’Alessio Wedge $125.00 Michael Kors Watch $335.00 Mimi + Marge Necklace $60.00 CW Jewellery Bracelet $20.00 Low Luv Ring $50.00

edmonton-fashion-yeg-1 edmonton-fashion-yeg-2 edmonton-fashion-yeg-3

Outfit #2

Boho-chic is a style that is making huge waves in 2014. It is laid back, relaxed and yet, often over-the-top.  Boho-chic colours to look out for are tie-dye, floral, suzani or paisley (like this Jackson Rowe Kimono). Throw in the Hudson Signature bootcut jean and you have something of a love-child aesthetic that'll have you reminiscing about the 60s and 70s.

Ugg D’alessio Wedge $125.00 C’est Moi Tank $26.00 Hudson Signature $265.00 Jackson Rowe Maverick Kimono $99.00 Two Good Trends Bracelet $30.00 Mimi and Marge Jacket $245.00 C PAK Bracelet $15.00
