A TASTE OF MABELLA CHIC!
We get so excited when we walk away from an event where we know we just made a really great connection. This happened to Liz earlier this year when she met the lovely Mabel, the creative behind Mabella Chic, a line of unique pieces designed for the modern woman. Mabel is an emerging designer with such passion for creating fun and trendy pieces. Just this past summer she introduced her summer collection and we were excited when she approached us about collaborating. It is great to see that all we needed was the right timing to get to be creative together!The idea to feature her was a given but we wanted to do it in a way that would offer something to our readers so we decided what better way than to style one of her pieces the sol sisters way. We took the Ninette, a great body-con dress in white and blue stripe with a beautiful lace detail on the back and styled it in a way where you could easily take those summer items you didn't get enough of and wear them well into the fall season. Who else loves getting versatility in a piece?!
The first look was styled around a more casual/work appropriate look. During those fall days we get to experience bipolar temperatures and its nice to layer our clothing and easily adjust throughout the day. We paired the Ninette dress with this great bold crochet jacket and added neutral accessories to keep the look classic. The heels could easily be switched out for flats at the end of a work day to finish off the evening more comfortably.
Our second look is more fun and trendy. It is more appropriate for a night out or date night. We paired the Ninette dress with a faux leather moto jacket and studded ankle boots for a more edgy feel. The accessories including this oversized leather clutch compliment this versatile dress very well and carry it so easily into the night!
Next time your getting ready to put away all that summer clothes think twice about seeing how you can carry it into the next season by just adjusting some of the pairings. Perhaps some items are coming to you now....don't hesitate to reach back in and get them out again!!
We encourage you to head on over to Mabella Chic and check out what this fabulous lady is up to! Her Fall 2014 collection is just around the corner and we are so excited for it just from the teaser we got!
Mabel thank you for all your time and shared support...we look forward to our next creative session!
