Get The Look: Pocket Dresses



As the focus of most warm weather wardrobes, dresses have always received top honors.  And with the surge of boots, tights and leggings, dresses have become a year round necessity. But as of late a new element is popping up all over dresses: Pockets! Like the creamer in your coffee, pockets add a little extra sweetness and ease to the already comfortable spring staple. Pocket dresses have ascended from couture designers to major retailers as a favorite for red carpet events and casual daytime outtings. And judging from our charming selection,  these extra compartments have already become an all around favorite.

See Erin Wasson’s Apartment on The Selby

Browsing through the Selby today, I came across RVCA’s face and designer Erin Wasson’s Manhattan apartment. The Selby is a website featuring photographs, paintings and videos of interesting people and their creative spaces. Erin Wasson’s creative place highlights her signature leather-studded and lace street style in a downtown open loft. Her favorite part? The amber lights. Mine? Hands down the vintage-looking city bike propped up against the wall of sketches. Interested scoping out the RVCA designer’s eclectic pad? Get a glimpse here.

Standout Spring Line: Matix Girls


Spring ’09 brought a new element of rich fabrics and grown-up, but still girly, designs to the surf industry. Matix pounced on this movement early with a standout line that nails the perfect balance of chic and beach. It’s not often I see a collection where I’d feel ultra confident in EVERY single piece, but Matix stole my heart with their sophisticated fabrics mixed with a playful spring palate: ice cream-colored pastels, tonal yellows reminiscent of a summer’s worth of bathing in the sun, and nautical navy on sun-bleached sailboat white. It’s a line for youthful spirits infused with a refined taste for luxury, and an appreciation for quality and subtle details. In the words of Veruca, “But daddy, I want it now!” Fall in love with Matix Girls Spring Collection at Swell. Love it?
