Sarine Marie

{ Sarine Marie Fall/Winter 12-13 Collection preview, LA Fashion Week}
I recently paired up with LA based designer Sarine Beberian, the face behind the  contemporary women's label, Sarine Marie and had the privilege of being selected to showcase her beautiful work.  Supporting emerging designers is something we love to do here on VV, especially when the collections speak volumes on their own merit through each detailed ensemble. It's no easy task to mix romance with edge and still keep the fabrics light enough to celebrate a women's silhouette. Laser cut leather, silk chiffon, lace and wool gabardine, these are just some of the luxury fabrics she uses to showcase her lady-like designs. Recently Sarine Marie was one of 12 emerging designers at the MAGIC show in Las Vegas.  The LA Fashion Council highlighted 11 pieces in a private runway show previewing her upcoming collections, not to mention the countless write-ups on her line by Apparel News, Women's Wear Daily, Lucky Magazine, MSN Living and more.  Check out more of her beautiful collection here.

From tough girl chic skulls to dainty initial cuffs sparkling with pave diamonds, this brand has it all. Plus it doesn't hurt that she was originally from Santa Barbara :). You can check out their website here In the meantime, please don't mind while I continue drooling.

Investment Pieces

Since we like to think of ourselves as savvy yet somewhat compulsive shoppers, we are always on the hunt for new trends and deals.  However, the older we get, the more refined our styles have gotten, the less fussy our wardrobe has become. We love to identify with the mantra of, quality over quantity. We will be the first to admit that years ago, our wardrobes were bursting with low quality trendy items that would be worn few times and later donated to Goodwill.  Talk about a total waste of money!  Thankfully, we grew out of that phase.  To help edit and re-define your wardrobe with classic and timeless clothing, here are our picks for staple "investment pieces" that literally will never ever go out of style.  {You can take that to the bank}!! Think about it, the more you save and refuse to spend on frivolous items, the more you'll be able to splurge on these timeless classics when the time is right. xx.

Hi. My name is Noelle and I’m a bootaholic.
Really, it’s true.  I am obsessed with boots.  I don't think there has been a time I have seen a pair of boots I did not like. Motorcyle, cowboy, short, tall, wedge, slouchy, suede, leather…you name it and I’ve had it at one point or another. I remember one hot Valley Summer whenever I would go out at night I would wear shorts or mini skirts with high boots. I’d like to think that was my signature look at the time {and the tacky trend when I was 17}. Now that I’m older {and know better} my style has become fine tuned and refined, yet I still find a way to incorporate boots into my looks.  A recent trend I am loving but had to train myself to get used to, are short booties.  You know that effortless look Kate Bosworth and Sienna Miller had as they rocked these Chloe boots?  Well, as that style grew on me more and more, I realized I may need to invest in those shoes.  Good thing for you, we found the exact same version for a fourth of the price {No. 3}; total manrepeller shoes though!  I love how they look on other people with a skirt, dress or when paired with leggings or skinny jeans. They’re versatile and often can take you from day to night. For me, boots give that instant edge I crave while still being able to wear something girly. My favorite go to boot that I own in black and brown is the All Saints Damisi Boot {No. 1}. If you are looking for some good quality sturdy cool-looking boots, I highly suggest checking out All Saints. They give the vintage worn in look and I have worn mine countless times and they hardly show any wear! Another thing I love on boots right now are details and studs {No. 6}.  I am lusting over these from Jeffrey Campbell but I found a similar and cheaper {woo hoo!} version from Steve Madden, here. Talk about parallel universe!

What kind of boots are you excited for this Fall?
