Barcelona in Boston: Desigual & A Linkup!


How many of you watch America's Next Top Model? Remember the young model Chantelle Brown-Young who had vitiligo? She got voted off last year, but already landed a modeling job as the face of Barcelona-based clothing company Desigual. 

I got so excited when I went home to San Francisco for the holidays and saw posters of her campaign EVERYWHERE. We stopped into the Desigual store in Union Square and it was so fun - bright colors and bold patterns everywhere! It's great to see a company taking fashion risks.

I was blown away when they approached me to review some of their items, and I can't wait to share them with you all!

First of all, can we just talk about this coat for a second? The detail and patterning is ridonculous. The material is super thick, the lining is silk, and you can really tell it's high quality. 

I love the spiral, floral design and how it fades from blue to white to blue again. The big white buttons and centered vertical pockets pull the piece together. I feel so fancy in this jacket!

I'm obsessed with this sleek black leather purse. It has like 7 pockets, the interior is this amazing red, and even a matching black and red tassel on the side. Like the jacket, this purse has amazing detail, from spiraling florals to gold rivets. The strap is adjustable, so I can wear it over one shoulder or cross-body. It's hard to find a purse that can fit everything and still looks stylish! 

I chose this skirt for it's combination of style and comfort, with a touch of personality. Desigual is so good at incorporating personality into their items! The skirt is made with an incredibly soft leather material, embroidered with a subtle floral design and a classy silver logo. I really love the comfortable fit, and how it makes for an effortlessly casual chic look.

It's hard to see in the picture, but the back of the jacket has a gold Desigual logo. I love the intricate patterning on the back too. So there you have it! This jacket, skirt, and purse are my newest outfit staples as we slowly transition from winter to spring here in Boston (see how there's no snow here)!
