Olive Loves: Fashion Night Out

My dearest, darling readers.

As you know, I adore fashion.  Simply, utterly, overwhelmingly –  adore it.

In fact, I would go as far to say that dressing up and looking divine is one of life’s great pleasures. That is why I am over the moon, sweet friends, to announce that I have been asked to co-host a fabulous Fashion Night Out event, a grand and amazing evening of talented designers, sublime musical entertainment, and all the brightest and the best lights of New York City!  And all in the name of promoting the wonderful clothing and people of the city’s famous Garment District!

That’s right! We are going to have ourselves a ball, all in the name of keeping U.S. designers, American-made. Factories, suppliers, young talent – all of them need our support in making sure the Garment District keeps on keeping on in creating the highest quality clothing for gals like me to don, for events like this.

Take a look at the invite below and be amazed at the gathering of talent.

Am I nervous?

Yes.

Am I excited?

Yes.

Am I honored?

Truly.

I will be sure to keep you all in the loop on the star-studded, perfectly coiffed, fabulously dressed – days and night to come…

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: Prism of Threads

Collage art, fashion, film, psychedelic visions and more, the blog and Etsy store of Prism of Threads simply blows my mind. That’s right. Mind blown!

You all know that I am a vintage fashion fanatic, and POT has a massive hand-curated collection of the most sublime pieces from the last 50 years of fabulous fashion style.That and the blog, oh the blog! Beautiful collections of exquisite art from other eras and our own. There is photography here and beautiful fashion spreads and illustration and gorgeous animations, and oh I could go on and on. But dears readers, go take a look for yourselves…

Their Etsy store has a selection of handmade pieces, recycled wonders which modernize the past and bring it full throttle into the future. Led by one of the finest scavengers of great vintage and thrift finds, a mysterious young lady artist in Los Angeles, Prism of Threads is a showcase of fine art, great clothes and an aesthetic marks by vivid color, explosive patterns and exploratory individuality.

Hooray!

Isn’t it wonderful, my dears, that the world wide web has allowed for such wonderful lost treasures to be found?

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.
