Adventures in good design, good eats, and everything else.

J.W. Anderson

Now that Spring is officially just a couple weeks away, I have been desperately trying to remember the collections that I swooned over months ago (apart from the obvious Style.com favorites). A visit to Coute Que Coute—quickly becoming one of my favorite fashion blogs—reminded me of J.W. Anderson and the armored print pants and faux chain-mail tank top look I was obsessed with.

I only was able to visit his website recently and what I read about the collection, I thought, was pretty awesome. The lookbook is gorgeous as well and increases the want factor of the accessories by at least 1000% percent. I need those necklaces and headbands in my life. I would wear them to a wedding I’m attending in a couple months.

I love, love, love the inspiration for this Spring collection. That acorn headpiece is nothing short of stunning.
