Love Shack.

By: Jen Shoop

I’ve written about this brand in the past, but I’ve recently fallen more deeply in love with it, in large part owing to its whimsical, feminine Instagram accountLoveShackFancy has captured my heart.  (This sweater…!) 

I fell deeply in love with this bow-shouldered frothy confection the minute I laid eyes on it.  It had sadly sold out in my size in the ivory/black, which I was going to test drive for Christmas this year, but I ordered it in the pink instead.  Very Clara from the Nutcracker.  Still might wear it for Christmas Eve — who says you have to wear red on Christmas?!  I love the length and drape of that dramatic velvet bow.  It will look perfect with my burgundy velvet pumps (under $100!).  If you are similarly smitten with the label, make sure to enter code THANKYOU10 for 10% off your first order.  I had to keep myself from ordering the coordinating dress for mini (I am loving their childrens’ line in particular for special occasions — Baptisms!  Weddings!  Etc.) as mini is well teed-up in the holiday attire department already.  You can also score floral-printed variations on the holiday dress on sale here and here.

The Perfect LSF Shoe.

I would die to pair any LSF’s looks with these stunning Malone Souliers mules.  Incidentally, a chic pick for a pastel-palette bride!

LoveShackFancy-Inspired Accessories.

The frothy, ladylike aesthetic has me shunning black, leather, and minimalism in favor of pastel, velvet, and pearl.  I’m especially keen on this Lele Sadoughi headband, which I’ve seen all over the place lately.  Would love to pair it with my favorite everyday cashmere and dark wash denim for an easy look.  I also dug out my Lele Sadoughi flower earrings — one of my favorite pairs this summer; they’ll now be worn proudly this winter, too.  Somehow the vibe also made me lust after a Van Cleef & Arpel quatrefoil necklace, just the kind of “forever gift” that would make a golden anniversary that much more special.  Until then, I’ll make do with this lookalike style.  Also swooning over these classic pumps in the prettiest shade of pink — or loud and proud glitter for NYE!

Also loving these pieces, which would all coordinate brilliantly with anything from the LSF collection — or stand up on their own, for that matter.

P.S.  How are your holiday decorations coming?  The one thing I’m truly missing is a tree topper.  We have a star with one of those stupidly-designed coils that ensures it is always crooked.  (Who designed that?!)  I’m finding myself drawn to this angel.  Any other suggestions?  I also think I might need these.

P.P.S.  A well-priced and very chic table lamp, my favorite space-saving hack for stowing out-of-season clothing (we clean, fold, stuff, and vacuum seal — you can use any vacuum with a hose to do it! — and then stack them at the top of our closet), and a cheery sweater I spotted on Eva Chen that would brighten any wardrobe.

P.P.P.S.  An ode to the em dash (my favorite punctuation mark), wise words I needed to hear last year — maybe they’ll resonate with you this one?, and — speaking of — is this a year that is asking questions or answering for you?

  1. Oooh, I love LSF. Their frothy confections are too good! Love that pink dress.

    My parents always put (the same) angel atop their tree, and I find that they’re much easier to straighten, given the flowing skirt/robe aspect. What did you end up doing? Can I tell you … I didn’t even have a tree this year (for shame) as I was traveling for the first 3 weeks of December, and then in Texas from the 25th onwards. So crazy and weird! I hope next December is less busy. xo

    1. Oh well — some years it’s just not feasible! At least you got to enjoy one at your parents’. I never did find a tree topper…will need to keep my eye out for next year! xoxo

  2. What pretty dresses! Sadly, that kind of look doesn’t look great on me, but a girl can dream!

    We too are missing a tree topper. I just haven’t found anything I like, so I usually hang a favorite ornament or two near the top. My father-in-law tops their tree with a Red Sox baseball cap (he is a HUGE baseball fan) – we’ve done that in years past, but I still hold out hope that I’ll find the tree topper of my dreams, whatever form that may take.

    1. Why wouldn’t they look great on you!?!??! I’m sure you could pull it off!

      You’ll have to let me know if you find the perfect tree topper!!! xo
