Is it Spring already? Not quite, but the weather might make you think differently. This unusually pleasant and rather amazing weather has me all sorts of excited for spring style sessions and I am kicking off the season with a shopping event at one of my favorite stores: Anaphora! Never been? Well let me show you around!
From the moment you walk in, the shop is stunning from fixtures to merchandise. You can shop luxurious fabrics and unique designs from all different price points but all have a modern minimalist theme. It is one of my go-to places to shop because I can always find something unique and stylish.
What does modern minimalism mean in the fashion world? Think basics that make a statement. Every once in awhile you might see an item with a modern pattern, but most often these pieces are simplified designs in solid colors that make a bold statement. Whether the statement is made with an unexpected drape of a fabric, curious style lines, interesting necklines or the perfectly un-perfect hem, these pieces speak for themselves in a daring yet refined way. Because of my background and love for garment design, I tend to gravitate toward modern minimalism in my own personal style. When you can see the creativity that goes into the design it makes that piece distinct. To the naked eye, some might see this style as boring but to me they are visual pieces of art. They make people feel special.
So if you are not yet familiar with this local shop, I would love to introduce you! My friends at Anaphora have exquisite taste in style and have curated a shop with extraordinary pieces that have meaning and true style. So please join us for champs and a sneak peek of spring trends and brand new merchandise hand selected just for tomorrow ! You will not want to miss out!
But until then, here is a little bit about my favorite brands they carry and pieces they have right now!
Australian brand that centers on minimalist sophistication, urban edge and the female form. These pieces will have more structure, texture and shape. It’s all about the fabric and the design. Each piece makes a statement by itself. In line with trends for Spring ’17, this little off the shoulder top is perfect for day and night.
This scandinavian clothing company carries unique basics that can easily transition from day to night. This brand has a way of making a trend piece, translate as timeless. You know how much I love 3rd pieces and I loooooove this suede jacket. It is lonely and needs a great home. It is a size L and will be your very best friend for the rest of your life. Also, it’s a steal and it will literally go with everything.
Also, this navy blue boyfriend style bomber jacket is one of my favorite pieces in the store right now. If you don’t have bomber yet, you need one and this one is perfect.
Real denim with edgy flair. Don’t expect to experience a legging jean with AMO. These jeans are the real deal. I wasn’t sure about them when I first tried them on, but I have to admit I really liked the non stretch feel. Then I turned around and the pockets made by “backside” look smaller and tighter than it ever has in a pair of jeans. Loved the raw edge look at the bottom too. Size up in this brand!
Darling pieces heavy on trend. My favorite was this bell-sleeved sweater that will be perfect for Spring.
And here is a little sneak peek of one the pieces that I am super excited about that won’t be available until tomorrow evening….
Off the shoulder, stripes and perfect with a white jean. I am in love.
See you tomorrow!
