Floral Print, ADA Belts, and Mani Designs

It’s Spring right? No, wait it’s snowing out! Oh well: when the world won’t bring a Minx flowers a Minx will have to bring flowers to the world! It’s true that delicate petals will freeze and wither during the winter months. Even flowers reproduced in fabric designs and prints can seem pale and out of place amongst the leather and wool landscape of February.

Still, that hopeful longing for Spring has crept into our bones. We are on a mission for blooming, leafy fashion. We have found some hearty varieties of botanical inspired adornment that can withstand the dim light of the low winter sun, and strengthen our hearts with the promise of Spring!

Ada Obi Wrap BeltThis floral dress can stand up to a winter debut because of its deep blue background, and rich texture of fabric and pattern. These elements ground it within the winter season. The pleating at the neck gives it a depth and weight that adds a complementary juxtaposition with the fun and flirty skirt length. To finish off the look pair this floral gem with a cardigan, a wrap belt, and your favorite Mani Design studs!

Have you met Mani Designs?

If you want to add some more botanical elements to your pre-Spring look there is no better place than local designer Amber Mahler’s jewelry line. Originally from California, Mahler has studied the local flora of Western North Carolina with a true artist’s passion. All the designs are cast from natural forms found on the designers walks. Her botanical collection is comprised of everything from blueberries to flowers to delicate sticks. These small wonders from nature are then cast in silver and gold plated silver to create jewelry straight out of collective imagination of the realm of fairy tales.

Don’t Forget to Add an ADA Wrap Belt

Our perfect finishing touch is the tried and true ADA wrap belt! With one deft motion of donning a belt and cinching it snugly at the natural waist you can instantly add style and texture to any outfit. Around Minx, ADA Belts are a styling staple. If you’ve been following us, our love for ADA wrap belts is obvious- just check out this post for proof!

Why ADA? The ADA wrap belt line offers a spectacular selection of vividly dyed leathers and unmatched versatility. Tie them into a bow, a rosette, a sailors knot- with ADA, the options are limitless! Besides just beautiful, these belts boast fantastic craftsmanship- each belt is cut from the highest quality Argentine leather. They are supple and soft enough to hug your curves all day!

White Hot

Scientists use a measure called the “color index” to find out how hot the surface of a star is. And this just in: our Off the Grid Skirt, the star of our last shoot, is WHITE HOT.

Space Cadet Space Cadet Moon Collection expertly combines a stretchy and fitted pencil silhouette with a structured tulle overlay. It’s a little unexpected, and a lot of fun…the epitome of a Minx woman!

Space Cadet

We love that even though the skirt is structured, it can also go with the flow (AKA the breeze from this gorgeous shot). And have we mentioned those amazing platforms from Dolce Vita? THE shoe trend of the summer really brings this futuristic look together.
