Lainey’s back

Photo: Castle Rock Entertainment

We just got the box set of Seinfeld DVDs, and the challenge is to find an episode never seen. In the process we’ve started to really like the early 90′s styling of Elaine Benes. Fashion has started to cycle again, and this time it’s with the 1990′s — the prominent shoulders in the top photo, the floral dress in the middle photo and the black/peach color combo and jacket proportions in the bottom photo. Plus, we’re loving the oxfords with short socks. Elaine can do no wrong. We’ll be referring to these looks in 2010 for much needed fashion inspiration.

Alexa Chung wearing Wren cardigan!

On the last episose of MTV’s It’s On with Alexa Chung, Alexa wears a cashmere Wren Cardigan over a party dress. We like how she mixes dressy with everyday separates. Try this look for the Holidays or New Year’s party instead of jeans and a party top. Have a great Monday!

Holiday Cheer

What a great way to end the day. We received a package from Twinkle and inside was this awesome hand-knit chunky Christmas ball! With a 6″ diameter, this ornament steals the Christmas decoration show. To get your own hand-knit Christmas ball, visit Twinkle’s website.

We heart Sofia

We’ve been following screenwriter and director, Sofia Coppola, for the better part of a decade now, and we really admire her understated style. When she glams it up for the cameras we are completely joyful. She’s adorable in this Anna Sui frock, the same body as our very own Psychedelic Floral Dress. Long time fan of Anna Sui, Sofia embraces the line’s bohemian, rock-and-roll aesthetic, and we love it too! Check out more Anna Sui here. Psst, and if you’re in the know, you’ll use promo code: peacelove20 at checkout for an additional 20% off your purchase! (offer expires Dec. 31, 2009)
