I was looking through Erika’s Fall line (see below) and fell in love this adorable high-waist tulip skirt with pockets (I’m a sucker for pockets!).  I immediately envisioned the striped skirt with wedges, a simple tank and a cropped denim jacket.

That’s what I love about Erika’s designs: each piece is casual and chic with just the right amount of “classic” to dress up or down.

Erika integrates femininity and tomboyish looks into her designs, and offers a wide array of skirts, dresses, hooded sweaters, and accessories. 

 

The incredibly talented designer behind the Erika Hendrix line is Erika Bates, who hails from Manheim, Germany.  the new collection, entitled “A FashionTale,” drops on August 5, 2009.  Erika managed to snag the season two runner-up of Germany’s Next Top Model, Anni Wendler, for the promotional campaign. Prices range from 35-140EUR, which translates into $49-196 USD. Shipping is available worldwide via her website www.erikahendrix.com, and pre-sale orders are currently available for the fall/winter collection on her website as well.

And I love layering necklaces.  Pearls with chains, chains with woods, black and white, fringe with wood.  The possibilities are endless and what better way to add to my collection then with the Periwinkle Dream…Upcycled Chocolate Link Chain and Ribbon Choker Necklace with Copper and Goldstone accent from the Alchemy Collection.”

Congratulations Feathered Design and a big thank you to all of you who participated!

This week’s spotlight shines on indie designer Mary Jo, who has a wonderfully electic shop on Etsy called Mercurios.  Mary Jo’s style is best described as modern and raw (she doesn’t use molds or patterns — everything is free-hand).  For the contest, she has graciously donated a stunning Copper Wide Band Corset Ring (description below)  I imeediately envisioned myself wearing this bold, goth-like statement piece with a pair of jeans!  And, for those of you looking for a metaphysical connection, you’ll be happy to know that copper offers many new age advantages: copper influences the flow of blood and provides strong energy to the body and brain.  It also heals the metabolism and helps to relieve exhaustion and sexual instability (nice!).

The contest will run from Monday, June 15 to Friday, June 19.  The winner will be selected on Saturday, June 20.

How to Play: Go to Mercurios and pick your favorite accessory.  Return to Fashiongrail and leave a comment to the following question: “What would you wear it with?” The most creative answer will win!  Have fun and good luck!
