haute hippie f/w 2011

 I didn’t expect to see my dream closet at the Haute Hippie F/W 2011 collection, but I sort of did…
Have a look to see what I mean in the link below…


Checked (plaid) weathered button down shirts with tarnished studs. Love the raw hem.
Fringe poncho with oversized monk style hoodie
The Dream Catcher chiffon maxi dress. I basically passed out when I saw this
Bobcat fur vest.  Good with flares or skinnies tucked into slim knee high leather boots. Beanie or large brimmed hat optional
Fringe beaded deco skirt. How sick with an old white T and black suede gladiators
Nude flame beaded jackets and charcoal long fringe cross stitched jackets
Emerald green embroided jacket. I think you know by now how I feel about embellished vintage looking jackets.  I think I whimpered when I saw this
Flowing maxi dress in rock chick leopard.  The fabric is so light it literally floats on the hanger
Heavy metal chain dress with plunging v neck front.  This ticks all my dress expectation boxes: Floor length. Check. Long skinny sleeves. Check. Plunging front. Check. Note the chains, one hanging from each shoulder down to the knee.  Kill me now
The Haute Hippie collection is inspired by the Rock n Roll Bohemian and all I kept thinking was ‘this is so bloody meeeeeee
The beaded jackets – I was thinking about this.
The fringing – Apart from the below post where I turned up at the show room wearing that fringe jacket, these numbers came to mind.
The leopard. The beading. The maxis  – This one outfit alone confirmed what I kept thinking:  This collection is like a hyper/luxe version of Karen’s ultimate closet.

I would wear have worn it all in some form or another so I felt right at home.

Must. Have. Long Chain. Metal. Dress. In. Last. Pic.

    I wasn’t expecting anything in this collection to do anything for me either, as I’m decidedly as unhippie as they come. BUT, that flame beaded jacket and leaopard maxi are GORGEOUS. that maxi deserves to come home with me one day soon 🙂

    This collection is amazing! And so you. I’m loving the skull in your first photo. I have been looking for one for sometime now to put on the front of the RV I am renting to go to Coachella. Any tips where I can find one?

    Check out my blog if you have a moment. I would appreciate any feedback.

    I started hyperventilating when I saw the maxi dress with the feathers. Words cannot even describe how beautiful that is.
