FALL FOR A BOHO MAXI

Boho dress and camel jacket.

I love a good maxi boho dress! All that beautifully printed fabric and a voluminous silhouette convey a laid back, global vibe. So just because we’re in the midst of October, I’m not ready to give up on my boho dresses yet, especially when it involves an  extra billowy sleeve, empire waist Indian dress from the 80s!

And since SF’s  fall weather, right now, is veering from high 60s to high 70s there will be plenty of opportunities to rock this number. To make a summer dress  transition into fall top it off with a classic wool blazer or coat and tough chunky booties (love that this trend is not only going strong but the boots are getting chunkier and chunkier!).

I didn’t want to the obvious thing and style this look with an equally bohemian style earring. The Dior safety pin drop shoulder-dusters are edgy in a very subtle and the amber drops are the just right touch of earthy.

LATE SUMMER FLORALS

Floral maxi dress and moto jacket.

There are a few things I adore about this vintage maxi dress! All that fabric, just blows me away!! If I bought this dress new, the cost would be relatively hefty just based on the amount of fabric used here! And the black and cream flower print is seasonless. The shoulder pads would make a football player proud, They are massive and they are fabulous, and really whittle away the waist visually. Given the very 90s grunge floral print this dress really straddles the late 80s and early 90s. And as the icing on the cake, the label reads “American Angel”.

The oversized moto is perfect for infamous SF winds (are summers are notoriously chilly) and to temper all those yards of floral print.
I just added to a pair of black and white sun and moon earrings to soften the hard edge vibe of the biker jacket and cut-out heel Chelsea booties. The lunch box clutch is such a sartorial chameleon, I have yet to find a look it doesn’t go with!

{OPULENT} BOHO SPRING

Boho gown and Sasha Maks Vintage statement earrings.
My heart skipped a beat when I first saw this dress at Closet 1951! I have a weakness for statement boho dresses, and this one delivered on every count.
It possesses all the typical things this genre of dress has–it’s maxi, flowy, with bishop sleeves, in a delicate, lacy paisley print, but wait, there’s more! This one boasts a open back with an attached shawl cape. And I love the earthy palette! This is a lot of dress and the almond and black tones really ground it.
Fun fashion fact: the dress is by Louis Féraud, who designed for film for such French style icons as Brigitte Bardot and Catherine Deneuve!

I had to go with gold here, and chose oversized drop earrings, with a whirl design that gives them a sense of movement echoing the intricate swirls of the paisley motif. The chunky bracelet, is actually a necklace I wrapped twice. The round profile of the chain really pops.

I chose a minaudiere by R&Y Agousti, a company known for creating accessories and furniture from natural and exotic materials. The rigid clutch counters the drapey lines of the dress, and the inlays of shagreen and ostrich leg framed in bronze add a touch of whimsy.

PSYCHEDELIC {MARRAKECH} MAXI

Boho maxi dress and chandelier earrings.
Can a dress transport you to an exotic vacation of your dreams? No doubt, if it’s a high-waist pleated maxi in a bright psychedelic print inspired by Marrakesh! When I saw this dress at Love Street Vintage, visions of strolling through Moroccan souks (picking out Berber jewelry, stocking up on caftans and babouches) began swimming in my head. A strong print like this calls for bold jewelry. My fave filigree chandelier earrings and a double pendant necklace compliment the boho fabulous dress. Add an assortment of brass rings and I’m ready to explore Morocco!

And don’t forget to use promo code  SASHA to shop Love Street online or in-store to receive 10% off all merchandise through June 14th. Your perfect vintage vacay outfit is only a click away!

TEXTURE AND COLOR PLAY

Silk dress and chunky sweater.

This look is all about contrasting texture and pops of color. A silk, autumnal hued striped dress is paired with a cozy knit. A coconut bead necklace with a horn clasp (I love how it echoes the texture of the chunky heather grey sweater) and wood bangles are contrasted with colorful glass beads and a gold-tone cuff with gem colored rhinestones. Finishe off with a classic gray coat and sculptural green peep toes, the ensemble balances boho with modern.
How do you like to mix it up with color and texture? Please comment below.

HOW TO WEAR A BOHO MAXI FOR FALL

HOW TO WEAR A BOHO MAXI: FALL STYLE

Recently I wrote about my fave runway fall trendsthe boho maxi dress, the Victorian trend, statement earrings, plaid, high-waisted, and chunky boots.

You may be wondering how to translate these looks from the runway to real life. I’m going to start with a piece that never ceases to inspire me–the boho maxi and how to wear it for fall. A maxi dress is truly one of the most versatile wardrobe items you can have in your closet. And I was happy to see the bold prints and sumptuous fabrics strutting the catwalks going into the colder months. For fall look for darker colors and heavier fabrics, but you can also wear your summer maxi by layering a turtleneck (another big trend for fall) under it or pairing it with a tough chic moto. Choose a chunky calf boot to add visual weight and contrast. Opt for a saddle bag to echo the dress’s boho vibe or choose a structured top-handle bag for a sophisticated-lady appeal.
How do you like to style a maxi dress?

BOHEMIAN SUMMER

IMG_9761

You can’t go wrong with a caftan, after all Diana Vreeland loved them ( having discovered them in Morocco) and Rachel Zoe is obsessed with them and deems them, “the most versatile item of clothing.” And this open style number from Les Mechantes, is easy to wear over a loose fitting spaghettii strap dress or a fave pair o denim.

Shop locally made caftans, pile on the bangles and choose a pair of statement shoulder sweepers, this Thursday for the Les Mechantes JET SET POP UP, featuring my collection of vintage boho jewels!

We’re excited to see you at Les Mechantes’ chic Ghirardelli Square boutique and make sure to RSVP here.

CAFTAN CHIC WITH LES MÈCHANTES

Caftan 2For my upcoming collab event, Le Méchantes Jet Set Pop Up featuring Sasha Maks Vintage, with  local boutique Les Méchantes, I got to wear one of my fave pieces – a caftan. Le Mechantes, launched in 2014, is women’s wear and lifestyle brand specializing in local designers and ethically produced fashion from around the world.  A private label line of caftans, designed and produced from remnant fabric in San Francisco, is inspired by the style icon, Liz Taylor, who knew who way around a caftan!

My love for vintage fashion is well known, and our upcoming event, on September, 17th, is the perfect marriage of easy to wear, luxe caftans and boho jewels. The caftan, an effortless piece suitable for day or night, (for me it always evokes the decadent glamour of 60s fashion icon Talitha Getty) and  is the ideal canvas for piling on the baubles! You can’t wear too much jewelry with it (and it’s fun to try).

The  brown and cream caftan is complimented by gold-tone boho hoops with an intricate design accented by rhinestones and enamel. An open neck necklace with long open-work volute pendants playfully echoes the ikat print. I piled on the bracelets and rings for pops of color.

If you love 60s and 70s style then join us at the Jet Set Pop Up September 17th!  RSVP: here.

JUMPSUIT: SUMMER CASUAL TO WINTER CHIC

How to style a summer jumpsuit for winter

Your lightweight and fun summer clothes don’t have to be outcast during the colder months. I think we all strive to extend our wardrobes to their sartorial limits. And one my fave styling tricks to transition summer and spring clothes into winter is by layering a sweater under a sleeveless dress, but why not extend that to a strapless jumpsuit?
I picked out this tribal print inspired piece from Style Lend, a San Francisco based company touted as “the airbnb for your closet”. They specialize in designer dresses and allow members to monetize there closets by renting and lending clothes. Since I met the founder and CEO, Lona Duncan, a year ago, it has been exciting to watch them open an outpost in NYC and their  inventory grow to over 800 dresses in the SF showroom.

BOHO FANTASIES: THE MAXI DRESS

Boho Maxi Dress Runway Inspiration Spring 2015There’s nothing that makes my heart race faster then a boho dress, preferably maxi in an exotic print and bold color palette. Talitha Getty in Marrakech, in a white caftan is my ultimate boho muse.
Luckily, every spring season the exoticism of the swinging ’60s and psychedelic ’70s returns to the catwalk.
Seen at the Valentino, Chloe, (the collection was dedicated to Gaby Aghion, the founder of Chloé in 1952) Marchesa, and Pucci, on the Spring 2015 runways, the feminine dresses where executed in voluminous shapes in gossamer, luxe  fabrics.
