Leah Reena Goren Does It Again


All photos courtesy of Leah Reena Goren

Leah Goren has done it again with her incredible hand designed patterns. Leah creates and designs all of the patterns featured on her garments herself and all of her clothes are hand-sewn, which makes them even more special. I am fortunate enough to have a custom made Leah Goren "cat dress" and I must say that it is one of my favorite items in my closet. I absolutely love knowing that the dress was custom made for me because it evokes such a loving feeling knowing that a real person made this amazing dress for me and put a lot of love into it. I must say that the attention to detail that Leah spends on each garment is incredible. I seriously don't know how she does it. Now that I've seen some of her new items I know I will have to start saving because I want all of them. Please check out Leah's Etsy store as well as her lovely blog and support this amazing girl!

Elle Fanning by Venetia Scott for Self Service Magazine

So, where do I even begin here? Few lookbooks ever leave me speechless, but honestly this one literally took my breath away the moment I saw it. I guess the first place to start is ELLE FREAKING FANNING! I have to be honest here, I've had a bit of a girl crush on here ever since the movie "Super 8". To me she embodies such an essence of class and sophistication, that its hard not to notice here in anything she does. My second reason for going crazy over these photos is how completely wearable all of the clothes are. I hate when lookbooks are gorgeous, yet not practical for a day at the office. Each of these outfits conveys a sense of 70s, 80s, and 90s vintage that just works. My favorite would have to be the soft flower tunic. I mean, it does have roller skates!
