Lookbook: Plum

I told ya I’m a dress kind of girl. Even in this freezing cold, rainy weather, I still can not resist pulling out a girly dress and heels. Plum is my favorite color for the season. My nails are currently a dark plum and I am loving it!

What I’m wearing:
Blazer: LaROK
Dress: Quiksilver
Tights: DKNY
Shoes: Jimmy Choo


Here are a couple of my recent fall purchases. I found this blazer on the sale rack at Nordstrom and it begged me to bring it home. It has these cute ruched sleeves. It only looks like I pulled the sleeves up but that’s really just the design. I could not resist that or the piping. It’s the perfect little preppy blazer.

I found the dress at Ian, one of my favorite Seattle boutiques. When I picked out the dress I didn’t look at the tags, I just thought it was cute. Not until after I tried it on I saw that it was by Quiksilver! I was like “wha?” I thought Quiksilver was a surfing brand or something. I didn’t expect a cute ruffly dress from them!

I checked out the Quiksilver website and am now eyeing a few more things.

This blouse, which would be perfect tucked into a slim skirt.

This sweater, paired with skinny jeans and knee high boots.

And this fun little dress

I wonder if this is a new thing for them or if they have always had stylish clothes for women and I just didn’t know it? Either way, I love it and am glad to have discovered it! Go here to check out the rest of the collection.

    Love it girl! I also love Ian – I’ve found some good sales on Diesel jeans there.

    You should also check out BB Dakota – similar to Quicksilver in that I thought they sold sportier looking clothes, but now they have all that girly stuff that you and I both love.

    Gorgeous outfit! Plum is such a great color on us Asian gals 😉 I think Quiksilver has a more “sophisticated” line coming out more recently, which is great for those of us who are over the whole surfer chick thing.
