This must be my week for finding cool, funky new online stores. Hallelu is a family-run fashion retailer based out of North Carolina. I love them because they ship internationally and they also have a fun section dedicated to how bloggers wear the various items on their site. It’s great to see how the different elements look styled by real girls, although I must say I like how Hallelu have styled these pieces.
Going through their looks, I realise how much I am loving sweet mini-pleats. I have been covertly collecting bad 80s pleated skirts from thrift stores and hemming them up into something sassy and cute. But I think the below display is further evidence that I have a problem. I.love.pleats…
I like that there is a pretty consistent palate between all of these pieces. I’d wear the cool semi-open weave sweater with the sweet lace shorts. I’d toughen up the mint tripoli dress with leather booties and a skinny black belt. I’d double-team the dots by pairing the coral skirt and sheer blouse. I love the on-trend rust colour of the ponte dress and would scrape my hair into a top knot and throw on some sassy orange lipstick. Finally, that red bag would be a great weekend errand bag, it’s soft, stylish but roomy enough to throw in everything you’ll need for a day of fun.
I am planning a new skirt reconstruction and this post I think is my inspiration to get it done, so that I can get my pleat on ASAP. Have you ever shopped Hallelu? How would you wear their gear?
