East West Mamas: A Silk Maxi Story

We are back again with our monthly collaboration in the most amazing silk maxi to ever grace our bods.  We wanted to showcase how versatile this wardrobe staple can be so I styled it up organic and casual and Tanya went all out fabulous and glam!  Every month we try and bring a new brand highlight and this month it is all about ETSI.  The super sweet designing duo have the best philosophy for their line and describe it as “a love of natural fabrics and on trend luxury easy to wear for women and girls”. The brand is all about modern luxury and has a price tag to match…that said, the maxi featured is made of the softest most luxurious silk I have had the pleasure to touch. It has the most amazing fluidity..and the slit added just the right amount of sex appeal to an otherwise conservative style. I have no problem spending the extra dough on quality items when I know the item will fast become a staple that I turn to again and again, season after season.  I know this will be a regular on the blog in months to come and can already envision it paired with some leather for fall.  If silk maxi’s are not your thing?  I am sort of obsessed with this sweatshirt dress and can definitely envision wearing it now with ballet flats and then into the fall with tights and boots…adore!  Tanya will probably speak to this more than I, as she has a darling little girl that can dress just like her….seriously how cute is this matching mother daughter set?  I hope you will pop by November Grey as well as the ETSI site and check out all the beautiful clothing they have to offer.  They are so kind as to offer a discount code to our readers…Use SPRING13 for ten percent off of your purchase!  Thank you for joining in another “East West Mamas” post and make it a great week:)

  8. Oh my a silk maxi, that just sound luxurious! Beautiful styling on both of you. I love how you let the dress be the star of the show. The floppy hat is a great addition!

  9. you guys look so great. Love the taupe add on’s. The detail of the vest and necklace are so pretty too.

    Saw your comment on the new hair. Yes it was a big brave move. But once you have the guts to go pink you can probably go with anything else. 🙂
