on the radar | statement pieces from splash

Big box stores in fashion offer a lot of convenience. They have long opening hours, you can purchase something from one store and return to another, you can order online, their selections and sizes are huge, they are quick on stocking up on the latest trends, etc. …the list goes on. They have huge budgets for advertising, hence it’s hard not to see them. When you look for that really unique piece that speaks your personal style and you know it will not come across the street on another woman, you need to explore those hidden gems in town or search specifically for boutiques. I recently got introduced to Splash, an American boutique that carries designer clothing from brands such as ALEXIS, Faithfull the Brand and Alice McCall. Brands that are rather unfamiliar, but these designers come out with pieces that show quality and meticulous detail work.

Below I selected some of my favorites from their online store.

This cute, high waist pleated skirt is part of the Alexis collection. The pleats add a flirty element to the skirt and the wrap detail has an adjustable tie closure. It’s available HERE.

I mentioned this before, statement sleeves are pretty big this season and who knew that you could incorporate them into a business professional look?

This skirt is one of my favorites. The design and the white ruffle details make it outstanding.

The lace trims soften up this dress quite a bit and pair so well with the navy hue. The wide belt helps accentuating your waist.

This “have it all” minimalist midi dress has trendy and modern written all over it. The off the shoulder design paired with the open sleeves and the asymmetric skirt exude a fashion conscious woman who is not afraid of trying out new things.

Aren’t those floral details just one of a kind? This top is very elegant and would go well for a spring / summer cocktail party coupled with a white high waist pencil skirt.

This dress doesn’t need much else. I love the fit & flare design paired with those playful stripes. Ladylike and fun at the same time.

This dusty rose top is ultra feminine. The perfect piece for a date night out.

Where do you shop for clothing? Online or at brick & mortar stores? Known brands or less know designers?
