Industry Standard

There's a new denim company in town. Say "hello" to Industry Standard.  They are designed in NYC,  the material is sourced from North Carolina, they are manufactured in LA and they are pretty damn cool. Not to mention the incredibly reasonable prices! 





I got the Odette midrise in white. There is some stretch in the jeans, but they are definitely on the snug side and made for slimmer figures (at least the pair I got), so make sure to order up a size.

Rebel Girls

I've only participate one Kick Starter campaign before. But, when I saw this video, I knew I had to help support this project.



 I can't wait to share these 100 stories about kick ass "rebel girls" with the Mini Fashionista.

What I Wore: Maternity Update

About 10 days ago this little baby turned from an awkward spare tire to a full on bump...project camouflage has become embrace basketball. So yesterday with abnormally warm temps in D.C. I broke out a dress I bought at ASOS months ago. You know we're big fans of ASOS here at C & C...and so far my two favorite maternity dresses have come from there. This is going to get some heavy use in the next 12 weeks before baby McB arrives.


Unfortunately I bought it so long ago it is sold out, but here are a few other floral ASOS options that are pretty darn cute. 

Bonded Skater Dress
 
Wiggle Dress


Midi Dress

And for those that aren't pregnant, please shop some of the non-maternity options for me - and have a glass of wine or two as well while you're at it.

Pencil Scuba Midi Dress

Mix & Match Midi Skater Dress

Lime Floral Bandeau Midi

Ear Candy

We're back! Sorry for the radio silence last week. Regan, our mom, and the mini fashionista came to D.C. for the week to throw me an amazing baby shower and we were busy girls!

But we've returned and hope to get back to our regularly scheduled programming. You may remember my post last year on the Lisi Lerch tassel earrings (I've got them in turquoise and black). These are the perfect accessory as we move into the summer months and are even come in two new colors - fireball and lemon!

But wait, that's not all...there's a new twist to the tassels...and I like what I see. The Coco earrings are definitely a show stopper.
 
 
Moving into my third trimester, I'm definitely looking for statement earrings to draw attention away from my growing mid-section :-)

She Can Do No Wrong

Prince William and Duchess Kate are on a tour of India, and Kate (per usual) is killing it with every outfit...and there have been lots of outfit. 


This dress is my favorite. Stunning. 





She can do no wrong. My mild obsession continues.

Mix or Match

I'm digging this Ann Taylor Geo Eyelet top, skirt and shorts. I'm a fan of an entire outfit of matching prints. 




What do you prefer when it comes to prints? Mix or match?

C & C Around the House: A Confession

 
I'm making a confession to you, our trusty readers. This isn't easy. I've done something I NEVER thought I'd do in a million years. We are now the owners of a La-Z-Boy recliner. Yes, you read that right. Dr. B has been wanting one for a while and since I generally get to be point on a lot of the design choices, he was due. 
 
 
 
That being said, this isn't your grandfather's La-Z-Boy...don't you know, Brooke Shields has one too (at least that's what she says in the ads). They have a pretty good selection of fabrics and it doesn't actually look like a recliner (unless it's reclined). I'd be remiss if I didn't say that it's really comfortable. I could do some serious reality TV watching in this chair. If it had to be done, the Jennings High Leg Recliner was the only option. 
 

Since there's a new chair in town, this Broyhill oversized chair has to go. If you live in the D.C. area and are in the market, it was originally $700 and I'm selling it for $150. It's basically new and very comfortable. Send me a note at cardicouture@gmail.com if you're interested.

 
I may have to eat crow once this baby arrives and that chair becomes my favorite spot in the house. Until then I'll play the reluctantly willing card.
