lauren winter february collection

lauren winter february 2014 collection

You may notice some changes around here - mainly, a new name. I've rebranded this blog and clothing to my own name for a number of reasons. There have been a lot of changes since I started Blooming Leopold, so much so that the name just doesn't fit anymore (the name came from a short but intense obsession I had with James Joyce after an Irish Lit class in college, which has sadly waned since then). If you follow me on Twitter, Instagram, or Pinterest, you may notice those handles have changed too. New year, new name. Thanks to Drew Tyndell for the new logo design!

And - new collection! When my limited-run pieces for Porter Flea sold out last December, I had to start fresh on some new styles for the online shop. I'm excited to finally debut them here. This season is a mix of late winter, early spring pieces that are meant to transition easily between all seasons - silk shift dresses that go great with tights and boots in the winter and bare legs and sandals in the spring, light tops and cardigans in silks and boiled wool for easy layering, a jumpsuit in breathable bamboo rayon for year-round wear.

All pieces will be available to purchase in the shop this weekend.

Thanks to the lovely Jessica Duthu (she's an amazing illustrator - check out her work here) for being my model for the day! Necklaces by Young Frankk, Gamma Folk, and Laura Lombardi.

  1. I like that you have your name now. It's classy. Not that it wasn't a cool name before! I love the navy silk shift dress. I bet it feels lush too. I can just imagine lazing about around town in sandals with it on.,. When it gets a little warmer. www.prettynostalgia.blogspot.co.uk

    1. thanks helena! it was time for a name change, it feels good to simplify things. and the shift dress would be great for lazing about, that might be my favorite thing about oversized clothes - so comfortable.

  2. New year, new you is right, missy. If the old name didn't feel you, then I agree you should change it. Personally, I love the decision, and the logo's great !

  3. LOVE the new collection and LOVE the rebranding! That boiled wool kimono top is utter perfection -- it's exactly what I didn't know I needed in my wardrobe! (seriously -- I have a Samuji skirt and a No. 6 dress that are both screaming for this top!) Love the rebranding, too. I love the simply silk shift dresses, as well -- they remind me of a more functional version of the No. 6 Easy Dress (which I love, but all of the gathering with the more kimono-y sleeves can make layering hard.) And don't get me started on those cocoon wraps -- my (not so) inner Stevie Nicks is dying -- when summers come, all I want to do is swan about in maxi dresses + cocoon wraps or cut-off and tees + cocoon wraps. How about I just go ahead and give you my next paycheck now, before you list everything in the shop?
    Seriously, though, well done, and super stoked I have a big girl job with big girl paycheck exactly for this reason. You're a super talent, my dear!
    Love,
    One of your biggest fangirls

  4. The changes you made are great - things do change, and you've had the blog a long time! Blooming Leopold was only the beginning of your legacy!

    I'm in love with the cardigan and navy shift. You are always inspiring, and I hope to one day own one of your pieces!
