  • About Temperley

    Temperley London celebrates its 10th anniversary year in 2011 with its namesake creative director, Alice Temperley, MBE, heading up the House of Temperley with a design signature that has made her one of the most distinctive voices in contemporary British fashion.

    Alice Temperley’s timeless, feminine designs combine meticulous detail and embellishments with an English eccentricity and personality drawing on everything British; Temperley is the modern day ‘Cool Britannia’.

    Following the success of the launch collection in 2000 at London Fashion Week, the first Temperley London boutique opened in 2001 on Colville Mews in Notting Hill, London where the head office and design rooms are still situated.

    This year sees the first year anniversary of ALICE by Temperley, a contemporary sister line created to fulfill a need for an everyday Temperley look in a more accessible market.

  • Bridal has grown to be an important part of the Temperley offering after the first bridal dresses were created following Alice’s own wedding to Lars Von Bennigsen, the CEO of Temperley Ltd, in 2002. There are now exclusive Bridal Salons in the London Mews and Los Angeles, Melrose Avenue stores with a full bridal collection of bespoke, made-to-order and current collection pieces, for private appointments only.

    The House of Temperley has also expanded into lifestyle with Temperley scented candles and has plans to move into homewear, menswear and childrenswear.

    The House produces 13 collections a year including; Cruise and Pre-Fall across the Temperley London and diffusion ALICE by Temperley line and 2 made-to-order bridal collections a year and key collaborations with leading British names such as the launch of Barbour Gold Label by Temperley in 2011.

  • The company operates 3 stand alone stores in London, Los Angeles and Dubai, and online stores for both lines at: temperleylondon.com and alicebytemperley.com. The lines are also currently available in over 200 doors across 35 countries worldwide.

    The past ten years have earned the House of Temperley critical acclaim and devoted fans around the world, dressing Royalty to the red carpet. Amongst many others, Temperley London fans include; Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, Pippa Middleton, Demi Moore, Jennifer Lopez, Heidi Klum, Reese Witherspoon and Claudia Schiffer. ALICE by Temperley has been worn by a range of fans including Emma Watson, Jessica Biel, Beyonce, Rihanna and Dakota Fanning.

  • While constantly being expanded in breadth, the House of Temperley always stays true to its philosophy; appreciating what women want with creations that exist outside of the trend of the moment and always flavoured with a sense of Alice’s individual ‘magpie’ style.

    The World of Temperley and its design philosophy is set to extend its influence, transforming it from one of Britain’s leading luxury brands to an all-encompassing lifestyle.

Summary: I think this was a very strong showing of what Tory Burch has to offer. As much as fashion can be about inspiration and what not, I love and appreciate wear-ability, how the runway translates to real life.

I think Tory Burch’s collection does this even with the very bold ensembles. I think Tory Burch’s fashions represents the feminine bonafide city girl – whose just a little rough because of her city side.

Presentation seems so much better and it still allows for creativity.

Tory burch is being loved by more and more people. It is a top favorite which blends traditional design along with modern fashion. It is not only suit for young people but also older people.

Kim and Kourtney Kardashian Say Goodbye Taking Ride On NYC Sightseeing Bus

23 Nov

Kim and Kourtney Kardashian looking fabulous on their last day of shooting in the city. They took a ride on a New York Sightseeing bus and waved to their fans as the bus drove by.

The family uprooted recently from their home in Calabasas, California to film a reality show spin off entitled, “Kourtney and Kim take New York.” They are documenting the opening of the Gotham branch of Dash, due to the booming success of the Los Angeles and Miami Beach area stores.

Although she says she had a great time experience the sights of NYC has to offer. She can’t wait to get back to California. II can’t wait for you all to see what we got up to in Kourtney and Kim Take New York next year!

In these photo’s Kim Kardashian is wearing Alice Olivia pants, Christian Louboutin booties, Andy & Debb top and a fab Burberry coat.

Summary: These two beautiful lovely ladies say good bye to New York. After a long few months their opening of Gotham branch of Dash this season went well.

We all look forward to watching Kourtney and Kim Take New York next year.

The curious me is wondering I thought Kourtney moved to New York permanently to live with boyfriend Scott DiSick?

I guess we all will stay tuned to what happens next with this family.

Victoria Secret Find: The Soft And Sexy Sweater Wrap

17 Nov

Going from Fall into Winter. We have to give our closet’s and wardrobe some serious attention!

Out with the old sweater trends and fashions of last year. Time to refresh your winter wardrobe and update any of last years sweater styles.

I came across this beautiful Cotton Cashmere wrap sweater online at Victoria Secret.

You can dress up any pair of jeans or dress pant’s with this lovely cashmere wrap sweater.

I just absolutely love shopping online and finding clothing that you can really wear and get a lot of use out of.

What a classy way to dress up any tee or tank by adding this wrap sweater over any simple top.

The model looks extremely comfortable and it’s very flattering and chic all at the same time.

I am very picky when it comes down to my sweaters. There are certain sweaters that absolutely can just look straight up bad and non flattering.

I also love the sophisticated vibe this sweater also gives off.

This beautiful cotton cashmere wrap sweater also comes in quite a few colors if your not interested in this lovely purple shade. I absolutely love this shade of purple. Very flattering. Most people look great in shades of purple.

This sweater can be worn many different ways!  You can change up the style of this sweater and never get bored with it!

The price point on this sweater is actually very reasonable right now. I just noticed normally it’s $58.00 it currently on sale for $39.00. Wow that’s a bargain if I ever seen one. I am definitely ordering this now while the sale is on.

I been buying my cashmere sweaters as well as many other styles of sweaters from Victoria Secret. I love how comfortable they always seem to be.

No matter what the style trend is I always had many people tell me how nice all my sweaters are that I have purchased from Victoria Secret. Many times never saying where I got it do to the fact I like being different.

This cotton cashmere wrap sweater show’s other ways it can be styled and worn. So it’s a multi-functional piece.

Something I can see never staying hung up in the closet for long.
