Top Reasons Why You Cannot Miss Out on Our BFW Event!

Haven’t RSVPed yet? We’ll give you a few more reasons to get on that ASAP 🙂

1. Complimentary admission – Hello! We feel you, money’s tight – that’s why we’re totally encouraging you to spend money on the important things – Like jewelry and drinks!

2. This is the night to dress up in that outfit you bought on impulse and didn’t get a chance to wear this Summer – Those open toe color blocking heels are not a lost cause!

3. You’re a social media junkie. Admit it. Your iphone is pretty much begging you to instagram this night and it hasn’t even arrived yet. Don’t forget to tag us @skilerlove  so we can see these juicy photos. And yes, if you must ask – this event will definitely be Facebook worthy.

4. You have a great appreciation for emerging designers and artists and you want to show support.

5. Those business cards that have been lying around – use them. Network. Make new friends (maybe buy them a drink).

6. It’s a bummer when you see someone walking around in the same made in China knockoff and you want to be the first to purchase something unique from the new Skiler Love collection, Bohemian Luxe. Guarenteed to be made right here in Boston.

7. You want to see what all the commotion is about – it’s okay to be curious!

8. To get your hands on one of the limited quantity items that we’re making specifically for the event. A Skiler Love original? Now that’s what I’m talking about.

9. No shipping. If you’re in the Boston area you’re one of the lucky ones. Even if you’re looking for a product that’s not available the night of, we’ll give you free shipping on any orders placed on September 30th. Now isn’t that sweet?

Fashion Week: Nicole Miller

Coming to a close is one of the most wonderful times of year – Fashion Week!

Although there have been many fabulous designers showing off their goods this week I decided to focus on Nicole Miller. Attention shoppers: if you are a fan of combining a vintage feel with a feminine modern twist – look no further!

Nicole Miller’s Fall 2012 collection offers plenty of alluring looks to choose from. Her collection was inspired by Jimi Hendrix and the Seventies. Watching model after model, you feel as if you revisited the decade of the past (and all the trends it had to offer) but snap back to present time due to her bright digital prints that are combined in the collection.

Fall 2012 Fashion Week: Badgley Mischka

BLOWN AWAY! That is the only feeling I can muster up to describe this metallic fantasy that graced the runway of this show. It was a sea of beautiful, show-stopping pieces. Gold luster trousers, glimmering green gowns, not to mention the snowy whites and furs that should not be forgotton.

Without a doubt, we will see a multitude of these pieces at red carpet moments in the near future. As hard as it was, I tried to narrow down to a handful of my favorite looks. Check them out!

Citrus Take Over!

I hope you’re a fan of citrus, this spring the fresh palette is taking over! Colors varying from orange, lemon, lime, and tangerine flooded the Spring 2012 runways offering a splash of sophistication while being subtly seductive. Citrus was on the scene as solids, in prints, combined with one another, combined with black and white, or paired with any number of bright hues.

Don’t believe me? Pantone announced the 2012 color of the year: Tangerine Tango, an orange with “a lot of depth to it” according to Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.

Sneak peak of what’s in store:
