blue leatherSince leather and faux leather are back big-time, I had to post this Sarah metallic dress from ivyandblumaggyboutique.com. It’s metallic vegan leather — which is 60 percent polyurethane and 40 percent polyester. It’s lined and dry clean only. I almost bought a similar-fabric, green dress with long sleeves in Peebles. So it’s kind of sparkle and shine time. The dress at left is $165.

Sock it to me

This bit of “Laugh In” dialog has nothing to do with compression socks, but there’s news in compression socks. They were, well, let’s say not stylish. Until now. Look at these babies from RejuvaHealth.

sockittomeYou get the benefits of graduated compression in socks that are far from that surgical white variety.

These are often recommended to folks who have ankle and leg swelling, varicose veins, edema, a recent operation and more conditions.

According to the web site, company founder Kelsey Minarik developed Deep Vein Thrombosis at age 21 in 2008. She launched RejuvaHealth in December of 2010. The socks retail for about $30 to $40 on the RejuvaHealth website.

For fun: Quoted from Wikipedia: “‘Sock it to me!’ experienced its greatest exposure on “Laugh In” although the phrase had been featured in songs like Aretha Franklin‘s 1967 “Respect” and Mitch Ryder’s 1966 ‘Sock It To Me, Baby!’” And yes, Richard Nixon said it on “Laugh In.”

NPR fashionThey’re back — prints, Bohemian style and more. Those of use who lived through the hippie days think some of the prints look a little familiar (and bizarre). Graphic, colorful and reminiscent of “Laugh In,” they all look like fun. 

In an NPR report, BCBG’s Max and Lubov Azria appeared at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week with “a nomadic, bohemian vibe.”

Read the full NPR story here. It indicates the clothes have a lot to do with gypsy inspirations. “It sounds a little crazy, but it’s also a little bit hippie …” Max Azria said in the story by Samantha Critchell.

Looks like beanies and hoods are hot too.

Here’s a story in Glamour on Richard Nicoll’s new orange and pink print dress with a tablecloth hem. I swear I had a very similar style — always loved the pink and orange blend.

At bottom is Anja Rubik fresh from a page of Vogue. Yes, she is wearing a diamond pattern mixed with stripes and flowers. Read the full story here. It’s all groovy.
