The Veda Punch Floral Leather Jacket sold out in stores and online almost immediately, but we managed to stash a new XS away. Stylehaus has the only new Veda Punch Floral Leather Jacket left ANYWHERE and we’re making it available for purchase online for the first time EVER, so snap it up in our online store STAT.

IT FACTOR FRIDAY: BUTTERFLIES

butterfly-print-trend

Valentino Spring 2014 Couture

If the designers at Valentino have anything to do with it, butterflies will be a huge trend for Spring and Fall.  Valentino’s runways were positively fluttering with butterfly wings for Spring 2014 Couture and Fall 2014!  However they involved the winged creatures- prints, 3D appliqués, or embroidered patches- the design duo behind Valentino made sure that there was no mistaking what would be the next big trend.  Here at stylehaus, our hears are aflutter for this look!

Valentino Fall 2014

While, of course, Valentino’s runway creations are a little too precious for real life, there is a way to incorporate the pretty little things into an outfit without coming off princess-y.  Our butterfly printed tank is just the thing!  In a classic palate of black and white, butterflies actually look pretty badass.

We love this tank worn with our white leather jacket, which is actually lined with butterfly-printed fabric!  If you want to try the trend, either of these pieces will satisfy your craving. Get them at stylehaus- 323-655-5900 to order.

Are you into this look?  How will you wear it?

 

IT FACTOR FRIDAY: PERFORATION

One of Spring’s biggest trends is perforation.  Fishnet, jersey net, you name it- if it’s got little holes in it, it’s cool.  The look was seen practically everywhere on the Spring runways; most notably at Alexander Wang, Sister by Sibling, Elizabeth and James, and Jeremy Scott (you can read our first report on fishnet here).

At stylehaus, we made sure to place our orders for the best netted looks around, and the Spring merch has finally started to arrive!  Our lastest shipment was filled with perforation- on everything from a tee shirt to a leather skirt to a suede biker jacket.  Bethany shows you how to rock the look with the best stylehaus pieces:

Bethany’s style is pretty minimal: leather pants, a white tee, and a great blazer does it for her every time.  With this perforated white tee, Bethany can ditch her usual blazer: the shirt is too cute to cover up!  The high neckline balances out the sometimes-risque look of fishnet, and a collar necklace brings all the attention up to Bethany’s glowing face.  This is such an easy, fresh way to wear this trend!

Nothing’s cooler than perforated leather, so even though Bethany isn’t much of a skirt girl, she had to try this piece on.  The exposed zipper and hardcore leather lend this piece an edgy vibe, so Bethany softened it up with a gorgeous butterfly blouse.  Fierce & feminine all at once!

Since the weather is warming up, a perforated jacket is the must-have piece of the moment.  This jacket ensures you’ll have all the look of a badass biker jacket, with the much-needed (in LA at least) ventilation of the netted material.  What makes the jacket even better?  Matching suede shorts!! We cannot get enough of this outfit.

All of these pieces are available for purchase at stylehaus!  You can come in to our shop at The Grove to try them on (set up an appointment here), or call 323-655-5900 to order.

MARINA MONDAY: AS BY DF

In today’s Marina Monday post, Marina shares one of her favorite leather jacket brands, AS by DF.

 

One of my favorite brands that we stock at stylehaus is AS by DF, the upscale sister brand of Alpine Stars.  Designed by Denise Focil, the label focuses on sleek, refined separates for the global traveler and offers gorgeous leathers, the perfect cozy sweaters, and wardrobe staples that are anything but basic.  Every season I have to add at least one AS by DF leather jacket to my collection, and this season it was this luxurious forest green version!

Alpine-Stars-ASbyDF

 

The mix of colors on this jacket- green body, black sleeves, gold hardware- reminded me of my favorite colorblocked Celine Trapeze bag!  This deep green feels almost like a neutral that I can throw on over anything, but it looks especially sleek & chic with an all-black outfit.   I chose an AS by DF lace top to wear underneath (also available at stylehaus!) and added my trusty leather leggings to the mix.

Some simple gold rings from Kami Lerner and shades from Karen Walker completed the “girl on the go” vibe!

I love this mix because I feel like I could go anywhere in it:  the airport, out for drinks, a business meeting, or shopping for a client.  Leather simultaneously says “laid-back” and “luxury”, especially AS by DF leather :)

Marina Monday: Leather Lovers

In this edition of Marina Monday, stylehaus founder Marina Monroe shows off a piece from her extensive leather jacket collection with BFF and sytlehaus client Olga Valentina:

 Marina Monroe Veda Jacket

Marina Monroe Veda Jacket 2_result

If there’s one thing that every woman should have in her closet, it’s a leather jacket.  And when I say “a leather jacket”, I mean at least 10.  That’s normal, right?

I’m not ashamed to admit that I probably have upwards of 25 leather jackets in my wardrobe- I wear one almost every day, and when you wear something that frequently you need options!  My new favorite leather jacket is from Veda (always Veda), and I can’t get enough of its beaded sleeves.  Neither can Olga!  Even though we wore our beaded leathers in pretty much the same exact way, I think the possibilities are endless for this piece.  Over an evening gown, with boyfriend jeans, on top of a shift dress…

To me, the over-the-top embellished sleeves are a throwback to 80s glamour.  To counteract that 80s feel, Olga and I made sure the rest of the pieces we wore were ultra-modern.

Cartoon muscle tees from cool-girl brand Laundry Room added a hip, grungy feel to these sparkly toppers.  I went for a melting Bart tee while Olga chose a dripping Minnie Mouse version.  So cute!  I added waxed drop-crotch pants, Olga rocked a leather-on-leather combo, and that’s where our differences end!

Both of us opted for Giuseppe Zanotti strappy buckle-up booties (mine in nude leather, Olga’s in red suede) and Olympia Le Tan book clutches.

Since the jacket sleeves are so bling-y, we used extra accessories sparingly.  We added a few rings and our matching outfits were complete!

Foodie Friday: Italian Style

foodie-Friday

 

 

Whenever we’re craving some authentic Italian cuisine, we head right out our door to La Piazza at The Grove! Featuring traditional Italian dishes such as homemade pasta, bruschetta, pizza, and risotto, La Piazza hits the spot every time and is perfect for date night or catching up with friends and family. With a wide variety of Italian dishes, La Piazza has something delectable for every taste palette. Nothing completes an Italian feast quite like wine, and the selection at La Piazza is fantastic! As an appetizer, we are fans of the Burrata e Prosciutto Crostino, which combines melted Burrata cheese, topped with Italian prosciutto and finished with hot butter and sage on top of a crostini for a flavorful combination. Deciding between pizza and pasta is always difficult, but the homemade egg pasta is a must! The traditional Chitarrine ai Pomodorini features egg spaghetti tossed with cherry tomato, garlic fresh basil and marinara, and is topped with aged ricotta cheese for a delicious adaptation on conventional spaghetti. For a little something sweet to complete the meal, the traditional Sicilian cannoli filled with Nutella chocolate and ricotta mousse topped with vanilla sauce is mouth-watering!

Since The Grove is a place to see and be seen, we always try to dress the part. La Piazza is a contemporary Italian restaurant with a traditional yet modern feel, and we thought it appropriate to wear something chic, contemporary, and Italian-inspired! We paired this long black skirt with slits with this playful, printed crop top, gorgeous leather jacket (new to stylehaüs) and heels. We kept the accessories chic and edgy with a long, black diamond necklace and let the outfit speak for itself!

Love this look? Contact info@stylehaus.com for details or visit our location at The Grove and enjoy some Italian dining!
