here comes the tartelette…

Talk about a match made in heaven. When we stumpled upon Untamed Petals’ Pinterest boards, we knew we’d met our accessories soulmate. In fact, after we reached out to Untamed Petals, we discover that founder Amanda Judge and tarte communications and marketing director Candace wore wedding dresses so similar, it looked like they had coordinated.

We knew a great collaboration was in the works…

 

Daytime Dare: Velveeta

November is upon us, Tartelettes, and we all know what that means- Wham, Bam, its Christmas, ma’am! What better suits the Holiday Season than the sumptuous richness of velvet? Ok, ok, so I understand your fears with this fabric. But I blame that fashion trepidation on two other style offenders. They go by the names of crushed and velour.

No worries, darlings, Mimi is the blogger who will save chic Christmas…or Hanukkah or Kwanzaa. (I’m très P.C.) Well, I’m playing Not-So-Secret Santa and giving you all you need to don truly gay apparel this Jingle Bell season.

1. You are Ebenezer Scrooge if this Isaac Mizrahi Two-Tone Velvet pump does not make you absolutely giddy. That eggplant on crimson is sartorially sinful.
2. I love
Corpus’ Velvet Moto jacket because it puts a casual edge on this typically evening fabric. VroomVroomVelvet!
3. A.Wang has done it again with this perfect tough/soft-chic
Velvet&Leather jacket
4. This
Foley+Corinna Velvet Trim vest is the supreme style for the Tartelette just dabbling in the fabric. I’d amp up the sexy factor with sizzling liquid leggings.
5. Joie
Velvet leggings
6. Nothing combats velvet’s “Old Granny” rep like this
Free People micro-mini with its funky paisley print!
7.
Gryphon Velvet Smoking Jacket
8. The patent and velvet on these Silver Way
Oxfords is the best unexpected combo since Chrismukkah.
9. Who better to up the chic ante of the dreaded velvet headband than Mr. Jacobs? This Marc by Marc Jacobs
Velvet Bow Headband is the perfect quirky touch to traditional Holiday fashions.
10. BCBG Max Azria
Velvet Romper

Ok, Tartelettes, no more velvet vexing! It’s time for you to deck the halls with boughs of chicness ;)

A tartelette’s wish list…

I’m channeling the boho-chic girl within and my top five must-haves are:
1. DVF stretch silk “Rachel” dress in this fun Warhol print
2. Ettika saddle leather “Peace” wrap
3. Sam Edelman “Galina” sandals in mineral blue
4. Now playing on my ipod—Bedouin Soundclash: When the Night Feels My Song
5. Nars “Schiap” shocking pink polish
