Olive Loves: FNO Designer Selects

The big day is drawing near my dears and I am all in tizzy trying to decide what a gal should wear to this fabulous event. As you know, I am playing host to a very special Fashion Night Out evening and all eyes, ( well, most eyes, anyway…or at least a few eyes), will be on me.

So what’s a girl to wear?

Well, here’s the thing. I have the distinct pleasure of sharing hosting duties alongside some supremely talented designers, all of whom make the most lovely clothes and accessories, an array of items that would be absolute perfection to showcase at the event.

So what do you think readers? What shall is be?

A stunning dress from Dana Maxx, it’s red hot, racy shade offset but the sweetest white lace collar? Perhaps I could match that elegant ensemble with a stunning black and white lizard skin clutch from Michelle Vale?

Or should I go streetwear and edgy and stand out from the crowds, with a sassy pair of Ashley Arrow leggings from Brit NYC under a Boy Meets Girl Expedition Utility Dress?

Decisions, decisions, decisions….

Stay tuned, my dears, for more options. I’m going to need your help!

Olive Loves: Goldnbones

There are leggings my dears, and then – there are Goldnbones leggings.

The psychedelic creation of artist OwlEyes, these beauties are beyond mere tights/coverings/pants. They are works of weird and wild art, fashion featuring a collage of custom images that range from wide eyes to Shinto deities to Russian sorcery.

Yes. You heard me right my darlings – sorcery and Shinto.

Goldnbones are like nothing you’ve seen before, so grab a pair fast and see what adventures await. Cosmic elegance! Runway religions! Put on those Goldnbones and strut your stuff – let that freak flag fly!

These are wonderfully strange and surreal, my sweet readers – dreams and visions translated into micropoly and spandex, hip hugging goodness!

Olive Loves: Sanae Intoxicants

The heavenly smell of a great perfume is something no girl should be without. And while I am a sucker for the classics (Chanel #5 anyone?!), I am more and more enamored of new and fresh and the artfully distilled, particularly those potent scents made of all natural oils, perfumes created without all those nasty chemicals…

That said, my dears, I am completely smitten with Sanae Intoxicants, a tiny company based in Los Angeles which handcrafts the most incredible combinations of exotic, thrilling, and sometimes unfamiliar oils, into creations that all smell absolutely incredible!

Founded by Miss Sanae Barber, these exquisite perfumes come in the most lovely and delicate teeny, teeny. tiny bottles, each containing smells that are absolutely entrancing.  Meadow Slumber smells of pine and sage and the first blossom of a wildflower, Smoking Rose is traditional rose with an sexy edge, Burning Ocean feels dark and dangerous and seductive in a fantastical Far East sort of way.

Put on a dab and you won’t be disappointed…

Olive Loves: Too Fast’s Nautical Suit

Those hot August nights are finally here! What better way to wow all the sailors at the pool party or the beach bonfire, than in this flouncy, flirty polka dot number from the ladies at Too Fast.

This young company makes one of a kind clothes in a very retro style, think Rosie The Riveter and hot rods and pin-ups and you’ve got a good idea of the fashion sense that inspires these young designers.

Oh what a suit! This little doozy has a red polka dot top with anchor embroidery and a bikini bottom in nautical print, with button details with a sweet, sweet ruffle round the back.
