Positive Vibes: Life is Good Fall 2014 Collection

We love it when a brand has a positive message, of course having a collection filled with great clothing and accessories doesn’t hurt either. We were newly introduced to the amazing Life is Good clothing and accessories brand, their amazing uplifting message of optimism, and their great products (we already have a long wish list of things we want).

Pepette…….Happiness is Shopping their Fall Scarves

We love the season of the scarves, and we’re not talking about winter when our necks and heads are wrapped in cocoons of wool. We mean now, the beautiful fall season when the weather gets cooler, the leaves change colors, and the clothing gets layered with great accessories. It is said that scarves are the new necklaces, and with these stunning prints from Pepette, we’re all for replacing our jewelry with these flowing accessories.

The LA-based brand boasts beautiful printed scarves and accessories that adds major cool points to your look and perfectly compliments every item in your closet. For Fall we’re loving their Sugar Skull, Bright Birds, Vintage Stripes (in blue/green and orange/pink/turquoise), and the Medallion Wash prints. The Pepette scarves retails for $57.00 to $65.00 and they’re available now for purchase.

One thing we especially love about Pepette, besides their gorgeous scarves, is their collaboration with non-profit organizations that empower women around the world and provides them with the skills and tools necessary to own and operate their own businesses. So for every purchase, know that you are helping an outstanding organization.

Back-to-School Style & Fall Fashion Trends from Kmart Fashion

It’s just about that time of cooler temperatures, and leaves changing color; and just as the trees get ready to change and shed their leaves, it is time to shed your summer wardrobe and replace it with fall looks. We’ve already showed you a few brand options and will continue with more like the labels available at Kmart. Today we highlight some of our favorite pieces from Route 66, Dream Out Loud, Sofia Vergara, Attention, and Jaclyn Smith.ROUTE 66 – We found ourselves intrigued by the fall tops and outerwear from the Route 66 fall 2014 offerings. With looks that are perfect for class, hanging out, and the weekend, you’re sure to find a few fall favorites. Details present is the collection include sheer, floral crochet, faux distressed leather sleeves, graphic sweatshirts and tees, and our favorite, splattered plaid effect.

DREAM OUT LOUD – while lace details dominated our clothing favorites from Dream Out Loud, we loved the tribal prints that were dominant in the bag collection. We loved the floral and plaid tops with lace inserts as layering pieces, they pair perfectly with jeans and would look great under the Dream Out Loud sheer Bomber Jacket. There’s more great back-to-school looks to be found here.

 

SOFIA VERGARA – you can always count on the Sofia Vergara collection to bring vibrant colors and sultry looks. We’re loving the pencil skirt with snakeskin print and its color block details, the moto-styled faux leather jacket, leggings with faux leather panels, and the abstract animal print pants.

ATTENTION – this remains our favorite label from Kmart because of its fresh, edgy offerings. This season, their outerwear is blowing us over. We love the modern take on classic car coat – it’s quilted, boasts striking gold-tone hardware and an asymmetrical zippered front. We loved the Merlot-hued jacket for its fusion of moto-style and bomber jacket details and our favorite, the beautiful camel-colored, color-block beauty. Tops and dresses are bold, eye-catching, and graphic, perfect for those who want to stand out.

BONGO – it’s all about standing out for the Bongo Fall 2014 collection, from clothing to shoes, they want you to make a statement with bold prints and abstract art-inspired pieces. Wear a floral print in a new way with the comfy sweatshirt with chiffon front panel, celebrate your edginess with a beaded and sparkly skull sweatshirt, show your wild side with a colorful animal print, and top it off with a printed shoe. These will certainly get the right attention walking the school halls.

JACLYN SMITH – we always associated the Jacklyn Smith label with an older set but with their fall 2014, we saw lots of hot trends and fresh, youthful and playful pieces. We’re in love with the adorable graphic puppy sweatshirt, the utility shirts with fun, all-over prints – we love the fox print, and we suggest also grabbing the gold leaf and the floral. Another favorite is the above chiffon shirt with the bird print on one side and graphic square print on the other, mixing prints is key this season and this shirt does it well. We love the addition of the purple tweed blazer draped over it for a chic look.

These are just a small sampling on what Kmart fashion has in store for you this fall.Check out a few more of Kmart’s fall 2014 offerings below.  Any favorite looks or pieces?
