5 Turquoise Summer Accessories We Love!

Summer is a time for festivals, beaches, weddings and any other excuse to be outdoors. Depending on the occasion, summer is time for some serious fun and fashion, too! We love bright colours pretty much all year long but for summer, we’re all about whimsical turquoise, well, pretty much… everything! Soothing to look at and often associated to bohemian and gypsy fashion, turquoise also symbolizes luck, ambition, success and creativity- that’s reason enough for us to wear it!

We love turquoise on black, grey, with denim anything, or paired with silver jewelry. We’re crazy about turquoise rings, necklaces, bracelets, and earrings! Below, find five of our favorite picks of pure turquoise bohemian style jewelry exclusive to our online boutique store.indiverve.com

A World of Stylists |Top 5 Polyvore Posts

So for those who are not aware of what Polyvore is, allow us to introduce you to this delightful gem of a website. Polyvore is a social media site that allows users to save and source images and create collages or outfits using the images that one saves and the products that one adds to their “closet”. Users are also able to peruse through others collages and like, comment, save and share. Essentially its the lovechild of Facebook and Pinterest and contains posts on everything from fashion and interior design to health tips and recipes.  We have selected (and will continue to select) our favorite Polyvore posts of the week. Ah the beauty of the internet – everyone can become/have their own virtual team of stylists/decorators/nutritionists.

EveninginVenice

This post, titled “An Early Evening in Venice” was created by our Operations Manager Alicia Arruda. The woman is a travel junkie and despite her love for Vancouver, wants nothing more than to travel the world for the rest of her life whether it be by plane, train, car, bus, ferry, fishing boat or canoe. What would Alicia wear in her ideal world while traipsing along the cobble-stoned streets of Venice? A pleated, floor-length Chanel maxi-dress , a Pamela Love onyx ring, sleek leather heels, a printed silk scarf (ideally from Indiverve) and a vintage chocolate brown leather jacket. It’s sleek and sultry but oh-so bohemian as one would expect from an Indiverve girl.

Another creation by Miss Arruda, this look reminds us of what a modern-day Audrey Hepburn would wear on a Parisian morning while walking along the Champs Elysee. How in love with this mushroom printed dress are we? Truly, madly, deeply just like Savage Garden would say.

Winter can be a majestic, mesmerizing season. Ice-skating, cozy beverages, Christmas, Hanukkah, Chinese New Year – it is all grand and dandy. It can also be incredibly depressing, especially if you happen to reside in the beautiful but gloomily rainy Pacific North-West. These sorbet-like hues of mint green, apricot, lavender and powder-blue have us day-dreaming about sunnier days in Spring.

europeanvintage

Did anyone make it out to the Eastside Flea in Vancouver today? If so, did you dress for the occasion with unusual vintage pieces? We loved this outfit that was put together by Elizabeth Nicole. The dainty femininity of the flowery ruffled top is balanced by the rustically distressed leather flats and cognac hobo. Paired with sleek, skinny blue jeans, a light-as-air cardigan and filigree earrings and we are sold. It’s quirky but very elegant.

When we saw this, we couldn’t believe how completely Vancouver it was. Everything from the distressed leather satchel and shapeless black dress to the potted plant and smoothie screams I live in Kits, do The Bar Method and run the Seawall three times a week and have a deep and thorough understanding of every neutral shade from taupe to charcoal. We are from Vancouver too though and can more than appreciate the understated elegance and sexiness of an all neutral, silhouette shunning ensemble.

Do you know of any Polyvore posts that you would like us to feature? Or better yet, have you created any gems yourself? Send them our way to alicia@indiverve.com and we will include your ideas with full credit.

Must Have Pieces for Your Winter Vacation

The showing of fashion collections is broken down into five different seasons instead of four. There is Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall and then there’s “Cruise”. The presentation of “cruise-wear” is meant to accommodate those lucky ladies and lads out there who are able to forgo the shivery, slushy, snowy madness that is Winter and fast-forward straight into Spring/Summer with the help of a tropical plane ticket or cruise. Our debut collection was created to be a melting-pot of different countries, cultures, styles, trends and in-turn, seasons. Our collection of tunics, dresses, blouses and accessories are meant to be very versatile and as season-less as possible. From our own experience, busy women do not always have the time to adjust their wardrobe from occasion to occasion let alone from season to season. Our clothes are designed in such a way that they can be dressed down or up, or made Summer or Winter appropriate with a simple change of styling. That being said, we have selected five pieces that we know would absolutely stun on a cruise or on a tropical island. With bright, juicy colours and soft, light-weight fabrics, these pieces will keep you looking hot whether you are lounging poolside avec un pina colada or are traipsing barefoot along a Mediterranean beach. 

Embellished Tunic Top – Destination: Greece

Image

 

Crafted out of light-as-air textured cotton, our hand-beaded, rope belted tunic evokes images of white sandy beaches and azure seas and will help you to look like a Grecian goddess.

Floral Print Dress with Red Ruffles – Destination: Italy

Image

This little floral printed number is not only beautiful with a romantic, vintage inspired charm, but it is also ridiculously comfortable and ideal for long walks up the cobble-stoned streets of Italy.

Maxi-Dress in Animal Print – Destination: Bali

Image

 

It seems that some delicate souls are scared to wear animal print (and with popular culture making feline inspired fabrics synonymous with cheesy night-clubs, heavily teased extensions and Jersey Shore, we can’t say that we blame them). Nonetheless, if the fabrics are of quality and the piece is beautifully cut, animal prints have a raw yet regal elegance that is timeless. Our animal print maxi-dress in frothy chiffon would be ideal for a luxurious dinner in Bali, immediately after getting your yoga on. 

Tunic Dress in Abstract Print – Destination: Morocco 

Image

This tribal printed stunner is made using a cotton/polyester chiffon vibrantly dyed in a juicy palette of cherry red, tangerine, lemon, violet and pink. With it’s short length and mod silhouette, this little tunic-dress is ideal for shimmying the night away in Morocco. 

Embroidered “Kurta” Top in Turquoise – Destination: India

Image

 

This turquoise tunic is inspired by the traditional Indian Kurta top. It’s loose shape is elegant and laid-back in a bohemian way. With this vibrant, head-turning shade of turquoise and luxurious, hand-done embroidery, this piece is ideal for India, a country rich in culture, colour, and design. 

Feel free to let us know your thoughts and if there are any pieces that we have missed!
