Clothes Encounters: Adam Lippes

I recently won an amazing wool knit sweater by a New York based designer Adam Lippes who showed at Mercedes Fall Fashion Week 2011. I was so surprised I even won and I started imaging different ways to wear my new sweater immediately!

The item I won is from the Fall 2011 Adam Collection and it is called "Chunky Wool Sweater" in Midnight, a Navy blue.

Here it is in Stone.

Notice the open knit pattern, (*Side Note: Remember when I interviewed designer Christopher Collins earlier this year, he told me open knit sweaters were going to be huge this fall! Thanks Chris!) and the contrasted v-neck knit around the neckline. Details like this make sweaters anything but ordinary.

Anyway, so I came up with a few different ways to wear this. its so versatile. I have been wearing it with jeans, leggings, over a dress and my favorite way, with a mini skirt.

Clothes Encounters:
Chunky Wool Sweater in Midnight by ADAM
Velvet grey mini by Banana Republic
Red beaded necklace from Jest Jewels
Navy DKNY tights
Ring by Bela Koi
Tiffany & Co Return to Tiffany tag bracelet
L.A.M.B handbag
Sapphire Gem Hair Bling by INKhandcrafted

Thanks so much to ADAM on Facebook for putting together this sweet giveaway. I love my new sweater!

 Also wanted to mention that I had my hair dried and blown out at Halo- A Dry Bar in Palo Alto.
It was my first time trying out a blow dry bar and I LOVED it. There are several types of blow outs to choose from, I asked for volume and loose curls, embarrassingly enough I asked for the "Kim Kardashian." Obviously she is known for her long locks with beautiful bounce. The hair dresser knew what I was talking about of course, so I think I get a pass for making a Kardashian reference, thank you :D

Back to Halo, if any of you ladies are looking to get your hair done, I would recommend coming here. Its very affordable for $35 a blow out. Costs go higher if you want an up do, as expected. Expect about 35 minutes for short hair and up to an hour for long hair, like mine.

I will return, after all I bought this Ahh-mazing Daily Candy deal for 3 blow outs for $65 here: Daily Candy-Halo Blow Dry bar. Get it while you still can!

 Last but not least-  I received my INKhandcrafted order of a Sapphire Gem Hair Bling Clip.  A nice finishing touch to a great hair day! ;) Expect to hear more about INKhandcrafted on The Fashion Palate and on Mode Bay Area.
