L is for LOVE

Luella is one of my absolute favorite designers and I am soooo painstakingly in L-O-V-E with Luella's Spring collection. It reminded me of why I fell in love with Luella in the first place. I love how Luella takes simple shapes and puts an interesting, unexpected, often eccentric twist on them. Always posh but never stuffy. From the colors to the sillohuettes, to the accents and detail--oh my, it's just too amazing!!! The line is very reminiscent of vintage UK au pair in all the right ways. The playful, volumnious sillohuettes, the soft yet vibrant color schemes and the genius shapes and detail make for such fun and romance, just in time for V Day... ::sigh::
all pc: teen vogue
(a) I would die to wear this on Valentine's day, it's the perfect dress for the ocassion. The soft pinks combined with the ruched fabric are so romantic and elegant; and the one sleeve is absolute genius! I love, love love it. Everything is just so perfect! I love the twisted detail of the chest area and the tiered design of the dress's hem.
(b)Oh so romantic and soft, it makes me want to skip through a garden and gaze longingly into a fountain. The loose fit of the ruffle encrusted top work surprisingly well with this adorable, volumnious skirt. I love the ruffles in both and am thinking that's what allows the pieces to vibe so well together; not to mention the soft glow the fusion of lilac and pretty pink give the already beautiful look. This skirt is hands down amazing...it would be so fun to wear...pretty, pretty princess...

(c)I love that I already have a dress similar to this one because this look is so inspiring. Part of what makes Luella so well, Luella is the simplicity pallet their pieces play on and how they always swoop in with eye catching detail. I adore these layered upon layered pearls, they add just the right amount of punch to complete Luella's signature intrigue. And the veil, oh the amazing beyond words veil, just stop...

(d)I love this color scheme! I would have never thought of paring purple and orange together for this season but it works so well. I felt faint at the sight of this gorgeous dress, the ruffles are ridiculously fabulous, and the cinched bow at the waist completes the perfection, and despite the fact that the model is thin, the cut of this piece looks to be rather slimming, yes??? The coat adds such sophistication to the look...I love how it's hemline meets perfectly with that of the dress. However, what I am most excited about are the hand gloves, they're so dainty and romantic..my mind can't help but think of the legendary Miss Audrey Hepburn. How adorably chic! They're perfect with this look, they complete it so well...I must have hand gloves immediately!
(e)I have never been a big fan of wearing one color looks, it has always seemed so elementary/amatuer to me. However, of course, Luella makes it work in the most amazing of ways. Granted this may be a little too dramatic for some to wear to the office but I would love to do it. I love the business woman sophistication of the structered jacket; yet the zippers and endless ruffles give the look so much personality and pop. How weird yet perfect is this skirt, honestly, who would have thought that this would work so wondorously other than Luella???

(f)The floral print is so perfect for this little top, esp. combined with the small bows on either side of the shoulders, pure genius! It's so girly yet posh. The design on the skirt is beautiful and has just enough detail to make it Luella, without stealing the spotlight from the top. Needless to say, the chic handbag and punchy, vibrant hand gloves make this look too perfect beyond expression. In the words of Miss Rachel Zoe-I die...
