The Designer : Alice + Olivia

This spring, I am swooning over the Alice + Olivia collection. While I’ve been a fan of Stacey Bendet’s designs for a while, this season has really won me over. The fresh colors, bold designs, and feminine touches combine to make this hard to resist. Somehow, she manages to bring glamour to every day pieces while still maintaining the comfort factor. Even better, her pieces live in a reasonable price range, considering the quality and style they embody.

With Mother’s Day being this week, here is a fun fact about the line: Stacey and a former classmate founded the brand in 2002, naming it after their mothers!

    Nice dress, the back design is so cool!

    I remember my first halter dress was Alice + Olivia (still have it) and it has this beautiful watercolor follower painted at the bottom. A+O always come up with youthful, fun but also elegant designs, love how they play with colors and patterns, bold in a good way.

    1. Carrie says:

      Isn’t it? Thanks, Holly.

      And I love the way you describe Alice + Olivia. Well put!
