I Still Love You NYC Spring Summer 2013 Video Lookbook

i am so pleased to share with you the latest collection from I Still Love You NYC for Spring Summer 2013

i hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed creating it.

with love, Carrie

me and mara hoffman

friday was the Mara Hoffman sample sale.

it was amazing, duh.

not only were the racks and racks of neon mayan print kaftans and breezy linnen jumpers a fraction of the retail price, Mara was actually at her own sale!

(and i was ready for that posibility with a set of 3 new I Still Love You NYC rings!)

Mara is such an inspiring woman, her designs are youthful and full of joy, but also graceful and elegant — very much like her personality.  And even tho the sale was a mad house full of really gorgeous women grabbing clothes and trying on everything under the sun, it was definitely the most polite sample sale in the history of sample sales.  Instead of squirreling away clothes that didn’t fit, girls were happily sharing and trading, helping strangers zip up a back, and quick with a complement; traits i can only associate back to the designer, who was there in the grit of it, helping run clothes, showing ladies how pieces work together, and even ringing up sales!

i absolutely love Christopher Kane’s spring summer 2011 it has as much neon, lace (real and laser print), texture and volume a girl could want while still remaining minimal, modern and refined.
