Making Desigual proud

Unless you live somewhere European, you probably haven't heard of Desigual; the brand is based out of Spain and creates clothing meant to be like no other, with lots of patchwork, graffiti and bold colors.

When I was in Italy I kind of had fun spotting the Desigual items seen on women on the street, the bright teal quilted coat, the burgundy floral brocade skirt - very highly recognizable among the typical masses of black.

It was there that I picked up this skirt, and I think this is by far my best styling of it yet (and the first time I haven't paired it with a black top).

I have actually had this outfit in mind ever since the last time I wore the skirt, the striped top, the yellow beads and the orange sandals seemed like the perfect antidote to my previous styling blackouts.

Beautiful as always. This is kind of an insignificant thing to notice but I loooveeee your nail polish color. Where is it from?

Sil said...

I had never heard of the brand and I will definitely have to check it out. I like how you styled the skirt. And you are back in the yacht club, no creepy stalker this time?

Vanessa said...

Seriously: Fantastic outfit. I love the thought that went into it and I can definitely see you roaming italian streets at night (with your camera and cappuccino) in this!

Lydia Marie said...

Love this! The accessories you paired with the skirt are just perfect.

Desigual has just popped up on my radar in the past couple of months. I'm impressed that every piece of it I've seen is different.

JewishGirlBlog said...

Ohh, glad to see you sporting Desigual! There's a store in NYC and I'm intrigued, but confused by some of their colorful designs. I love that this skirt incorporates those great Desigual colors within a versatile scheme.

And I can relate to the habit of spotting a particular designer on the street. I have Anthro-Tourettes---whenever I see someone wearing anything from Anthro on the street, I shout it out. It's really obnoxious, actually. Your silently-in-your-own-head way is much better.

kileen said...

great outfit!! there's actually a Desigual store opening up in Dallas and I've been wondering what kind of clothes they sell. I love this skirt and can't wait until they open now! :)

cute & little

I love your outfit. You have a lot going on, but in a good way. I love your yellow necklace, the stripe tee paired with the skirt, the heels, the purse. Everything. You look great.

Marie McGrath (The Joy of Fashion) said...

I remember Desigual from when I went to Europe with my brothers. Like you say, the store is filled with bright and bold pieces... I love it!

You did a wonderful job styling this unique looking skirt. Very chic!

Thanks for visiting! Love your blog and so happy to have been introduced. We have a Desigual in my neighborhood and I'm always attracted to their windows. Those shoes are hot and go perfectly with the skirt. Love the clutch, oh and ofcourse Chloe! What a doll.

that dog is adorable and so are your heels!

rlutz said...

Such a fabulous skirt...love how you paired it will all those other patterns. Even your puppy is stylish with the studded leash!

Alex Elizabeth said...

I like this styling, too! Not that I don't like the black on black-- then it looks like a dress! I only know Desigual because of your skirt, but maybe they'll become more mainstream. I know I was def like the only person who knew Custo Barcelona when it first came out (Desigual reminds me of Custo).

Lorena said...

I adore that last picture !
You look marvelous.... and I see you have a photographer ! YAY !
I heard of Desigual about a year ago, probably on line but there is a store here that sells it.
It totally reminds me of Custo Barcelona, only cheaper.

silvergirl said...

such a cool skirt and i love it with that top
you are looking fine!

StyleIDnet said...

No, not really .... fortunately we have a store here in Miami at the Aventura Mall and the clothes are unique, edgy, different. I did a post about them some months ago. I love that place because of their originality, your skirt is an example of that, I love the vivid colors and how you are wearing it with red shoes and striped shirt .... Awesome!

PS: If you ever come to Miami Check it out, its has one of the best bikini collections also.

Shea said...

You're right, I'm not familiar with the brand. But I LOVE this look on you! Not only is it a great way to style that skirt but I think it's one of my favorite looks of yours so far. Which is saying a lot because I love all your looks :) The striped shirt pairs beautifully with the skirt, and the yellow necklace and orange sandals really tie it all together.

Fashion Me Chic said...

i love your outfit. Your dog is so adorable. Awwwwwwwwwwwww!!!

Love that bag so much!!

Meri said...

I love that you didn't keep this look "simple," but instead had a lot of fun with it with the print mixing and red shoes. I've never heard of this brand but I"ll keep an eye out!

FashionJazz said...

Love the way you styled your outfit! :) Happy Sunday! xx

Madeline Quaint said...

I love Desigual and their clothes are highly recognizable - I like spotting them too. :)

I like it how the top is sort of the opposite of the skirt. And your sandals are so nice - especially with the red pattern on the skirt.

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Desigual is in Asia too! Love the asymmetric cut!

Emmett Katherine said...

The skirt is lovely and I like how you've paired it with a subtle striped top :)

TrophyBoutique said...

This is my kind of outfit! So colorful and fun, yet not too nutty. Just the right amount of nutty.
I went to our TJMaxx last week and found NOTHING as nice as what you always find...

tessa said...

That clutch is GORGEOUS. I just can't get past the design. It is so unique. I have never seen anything like that before.
P.S. That skirt is fierce.
P.P.S. Those shoes are even more fierce.

Obviously, I love everything about this!

I am always interested in finding out more on European Brands and Designers just like Desigual! I like the asymetrical hem on the skirt, and the floral pattern gives it a really nice and distinct quality! How's the camera repair going?
