The holidays are right around the corner, which means our holiday wishlists are in full on GO-mode. And since most of us usually have a little splurge present on the list, I’m giving you the scoop on 3 brands which have recently hit my fashion radar. Anything for a little Xmas list inspo, right??
I just rediscovered Odd Molly and I love that they have such a fun story behind their brand. It’s a company that started in Venice Beach, CA in the 80’s, and the brand’s conception revolved around a girl named Molly. Molly was a skater girl, who had the courage to break free from conventions and follow her own dreams. Nowadays, the brand encourages girls to do just this. Follow their own dreams and aspirations, and to encourage more ‘Odd Mollys’ in the world!
They were nice enough to send over a few items and their quality of fabrics and construction is super premium. One of the sweaters I received is cashmere, and although I usually can’t wear cashmere without a layer underneath because I get so itchy, this cashmere was nothing but soft, lush goodness against my skin. It also has a hood that keeps me cozy when the temps dip down.
And, can we talk about this jacket?! I fell in love as soon as I saw it on their website. It’s like a fuzzy teddy bear coat, but with just the right amount of hardware and tailoring to make it a true statement piece. Plus, it’s lined in satin and kept me toasty warm during my trip back to the East Coast. I’ll for sure be living in it this Winter!
If you’re looking for that perfect vintage 90’s cut denim this season, RE/DONE is your answer. The brand sources vintage Levi’s jeans and repurposes them, giving them a slightly more modern fit, basically making them into things we all want to wear!
Think: high rise jeans, denim jackets, denim skirts. They also repurpose vintage Hanes tee shirts and screenprint them with fun, cheeky graphics. (RE/DONE was nice enough to sponsor Quartz & Leisure by sending over a pair of High Rise Crop Jeans. See how I styled them here).
Their prices are a bit higher than generic denim, but when you think about the fact that they are sourcing and buying vintage items, fully taking them apart and then recreating them…I mean, that’s a lot of work right there. Plus, the jeans are made of real denim material that won’t stretch out or get loose after time, so I feel like that right there is justification for a splurge.
New favorite it-brand that’s sold exclusively at Revolve, everything Majorelle designs is totally lust worthy. The brand is headed by creative director Rachel Zeilic, who you’ve probably seen cavorting with the ladies of Revolve on their Revolve Around the World trips. (And here is a little *PRO TIP*. She’s also a VP of influencer marketing and gives tons of helpful advice on working with brands and PR companies through her IG stories, so if you’re a new influencer I suggest you go give her a follow @rachelzeilic! (You can thank me later!)
Below are some of my favorite pieces from Majorelle, and you can bet a lot of these will be on my wishlist this Christmas!
