Stella Nova Copenhagen S/S 10

So lately I’ve kinda been in the dumps where do I start, okay I won’t I’ll save you the drama! There are certain things that can assist in dissipating my funky moods & on this day Stella Nova is doing it! I’ll admit I do have an infatuation with Scandinavian brands/designers, their aesthetic is pretty minimal but always pushing the envelope. As I scrolled through the  lookbook, I found myself getting frustrated trying to narrow down which looks I would post on the blog(I WANT THEM ALL SERIOUSLY).  Accessorizing with jewelry is something that I would prefer not to even tackle on a daily basis, I would love to master putting chic looks together like these that work just fine without any accessories. I tweeted yesterday about a recent shoot fellow blogger Lala Lopez did & made the comment “everything worked” in the shoot, the model,the photog,the mua & of course the stylist. Stella Nova’s S/S10 look book is a pleasant reiteration of that tweet. Only two shoe options were used for the 4o looks & both would equally compliment all. One of the things that drew me into the line most is the comfortable factor, draping silhouettes that are breathable & uber feminine. I’m trying to get into this look more for spring & summer, straying away from more form-fitting pieces and learning to work my assets with diversity. Stella Nova’s S/S 10 look book is a wonderful how-to on putting together all of spring & summers hot trends without looking trendy but chic!

P.S. I know after saying all of that I still seemed to O.D. with the pics. but be sure to visit Stella Nova’s site to view the rest because this is only a snippet :)!

Sustainably Comfortable: Aymara

If you’re a regular visitor here at Nuvany Nice then you’ve heard me talk about the A or Z disorder that I have. For those of you who have no clue what I’m talking about, let me explain. My personality is as such in every aspect of my life basically, very extreme cold or hot, black or white I’m sure you get my drift. Even when it comes to fashion I’m always at one end of the spectrum or the other, rarely can I find a medium. What does that have to do with today’s post, right :)?

Well after looking at the presentation of Danish label Aymara’s S/S 10 collection & then looking at the snow outside of my window, I instantly envisioned throwing one of their comfy wool sweaters or cardigans over my bare body. (note the drastic contrast :)). The philosophy of Aymara is to produce garments in the place where the material and expertise have its origin. This way, you ensure that the profit becomes those who have the right to it and you obtain a high quality product;you support and enhance. How wonderful is that!  Another thing I love about this line, all of these pieces are transitional from season to season. Basic sillouhettes that I can wear now layered up or alone when the weather gets warmer because of the perforated detail. You can learn more about the wonderful work & awareness Aymara is doing by visiting their site HERE!
