ALICE by Temperley

Temperley London has always been a favorite of mine. Launched in 2000 at London Fashion Week, creative director Alice Temperley’s designs are the perfect melding of classic feminine cuts and details and modern edge. And, in 2010, ALICE by Temperley was launched, a contemporary sister line to the Temperley collections that features more everyday-suitable pieces at more market friendly prices.

And, trust me, the designs are beyond gorgeous. Here are a few of my absolutely favorite pieces which are carried by the UK retailer Jules B and, many are on sale…so if anyone wants to get me an early holiday present, hint hint.




With Victorian design elements and a modern touch of sheer lace, this dress is the best mix of conservative and provocative.


Lace and sheers are big right now and this dress combines both, along with a little witchy woman attitude.



And it comes in a gown length version!




 Remember what I just said about sheers?



This tough and sexy leather dress just oozes sophistication and modernity.




Again, I just love the old-fashioned, Victorian feel of this piece – but the fabric choice and zipper make it deliciously modern and give it a harder edge.


Capes are always a fixture of fall fashion and I love the bold Aztec pattern and delicate ribbon ties on this cozy number.


Is anyone else a Temperley fan?
