Nanette Lepore

As all the wonderfully dedicated readers of this column should know, I have been quite inspired by Rory Gilmore's wardrobe this season. So for all those who don't watch Gilmore Girls, Rory (the main young character,) goes to her rich grandparents' house for semi-formal dinners every Friday night. So she gets to wear pretty dresses for those dinners! Once, there was a house party and Rory turned up in this simple but really pretty black dress that I absolutely adored:

Isn't it so perfect for a stylish classical girl? And then in the last episode of this season, Rory wore another outfit that has since been imprinted in my brain:

The flowery top underneath matches the white cardigan so perfectly. Even though at that moment, Rory was telling her mum Lorelai that she was going to quit Yale, I can't help but admire how she can still be wearing such a pretty outfit in that outfit for such a not-pretty situation.
So I did some research and found out that all three items mentioned above were from the same brand: Nanette Lepore. Some of you may already be familiar with this brand since they sell it in quite a few department stores. But I must gush over how pretty their Spring/Summer o5 collection is. The whole theme is so girlish and feminine. It makes one look stylishly pretty without looking like one had tried hard. Take a look at my fav outfits from the collection:

(Left) Such a beeautiful dress. I love the patterns and the cutting. And the colors? Absolutely marvelous. (Right) This dress is perfect for this season since such prints is ever so trendy.

(Left) Even for such a simple dress, that single mesh layer at the bottom makes the colors more alive. Notice the African tribal influenced necklace. (Right) I love the way the dress blends a black & white print with a colorful print so well. And the way is swishes and swashes when it moves is just splendid.

(Left) A relatively normal outfit (considering that it is not a fancy dress.) But still so stylishly put together. Striped blazer and skirt on top and bohemian shirt underneath. (Right) Another ethnic influenced dress. This dress can be worn casually or formally -all depends on how you match the accessories and your makeup.

Nanette Lepore does actually sell a lot of casual clothes like that second last outfit shown. To see more, go to the Nanette Lepore website or visit your local department stores, (such as Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom.)

Nanette Lepore is SO adorable! She mixes the prints oh-so-chic-ly! Her clothes have also been worn by Julie and Marissa Cooper on the OC. LOL I don't know who is raiding who's closet in this case!

Thank you for making such a fantastic website dedicated to one of the greatest parts of life... FASHION. Anyway, Nanette Lepore is gorgeous. Last season she really did seem to be the creator of the shrug. Not only that, but she is the original creator of "pretty chic."

love love LOVE HER.

Not what I was searching for, but none the less and interesting blog here. Thanks for putting it up. I've enjoyed reading alot of the text here. I got you bookmarked for the future, I'll be back.

My site is a bit different, some think it's odd. I guess it's a matter how you look at it. I have a mens male enhancement reviews related site. Most of the articles are on mens male enhancement reviews.

I love Rory's clothing and have been finding trouble on finding the syles and designers she wears season 5-6 which is shown in a few pictures. I would die for clothing like hers, though I'm not very girly myself, I would wear them every chance I could get.

Please post in my webpage (s15.invisionfree.com/thegilmorelife) which is all about the Gilmore Girls on Rory's fashion if you have the chance...

Thanks

What season/episode is Rory wearing that flowery top with white cardigan?

She wears the floral top and cardigan in the last episode of season 5 ("A House is Not a Home"). I found the top on Ebay and I adore it! I'm just trying to get the cardigan now... :]
