orla kiely for uniqlo!

I'm not one to care about this designer or that label. At all. If you know me, I'd just as soon shop the 70% off sale rack, or head to the nearest thrift store (of which there are practically none affordable enough in NY, but still.) Well I've been being nice to myself, and making some little purchases here and there. And the Orla Kiely for Uniqlo line got me excited! The prints and color combos she comes up with are right up my alley.

While shopping, I decided to skip the dresses, and make a beeline for my perennial favorite- the scarves. Even better was that they happened to be on sale that day! This beauty only set me back ten big ones.

I decided to go with her signature stem pattern... I can't tell you how many compliments I've gotten since I started wearing it, which is pretty much every day. The colors are just wonderful.

Even though undoubtedly the material isn't as nice as the original, it's still one of those pieces that I hope to keep for a long time. Right now, just putting it on makes me feel extra special :) I think it might even qualify as one of the most beautiful things I own.

I hope everyone has been doing okay out there, and I'm sorry for not answering some of your comments lately. I've been a bit busy this week, and have been feeling a little melancholy. I'm hoping the prospect of another scarf in the near future will cheer me up :)


Thank you for reading- something I probably don't say enough. xoxo

  1. That truly is one gorgeous scarf! It is still too warm here in FL to bring out the scarves, so I am totally envying that scarf right now!

    1. this scarf is pretty lightweight, though. i'm the kinda gal, i love scarves during any season :) although yes, florida would probably be a little too hot..

  5. I did not know that there was an Orla Kiely line at Uniqlo. I need to get over there! I love your green nails. They look so great with the colors of the scarf.

    1. totally. i love crazy prints, and this scarf is definitely no exception. but for some reason, i just feel like it makes things look a little more pulled together than some of my others can manage.

  9. Awe, I love it! And the eye make-up, too! ;) I was browsing through her wallpaper section in her online store and wanted to get that same pattern, but then I thought I didn't want to have what is pretty much a logo of a brand on my wall, haha; it's really pretty, though.

    Have a nice night!

    1. {trade secret... they're false eyelashes :P} i've been loving them in photos lately, and i think i want to start wearing them more regularly! they're REALLY uncomfortable, but evidently if you trim them to match your eye length, they fit/ feel better. gonna do that next time.
