Our Best Holidays Outfits (So Far)

Christmas, Winter FashionLela BoutiqueComment

Winter is coming... and that means tons of parties! Peruse below for our latest and greatest picks.

Dark Floral Dream

Flowers aren't just for spring anymore! Maggy London's muted take on the trend makes for an elegant holiday staple. We paired it with a fur-trimmed sweater for extra coverage and flair.

In The Mix
Want to try something a little different? Combine various textures in your outfit to make simple pieces a little funky. 

Purple Pop
Tired of red and green for the holidays? Step out in this gorgeous Samuel Dong gown to turn heads and stand out from the crowd. 

Subtle Sparkle
These aren't your daughter's sequins! This elegant Eva Franco dress pairs softer tones on top of beautiful black velvet with an asymmetric skirt hem. Love!

Festively Dressed
How incredible is this piece? Nicole Miller has done it again. If you find the neckline a bit much, try it with a lace bandeau underneath.

See anything you like? Come down to the Third Ward - we'd love to see you! 
 

Luxury Shoe Love: Consignment Style

One of the best parts of shopping at Lela is, in my humble opinion, consignment... getting an amazing piece of clothing for a fraction of the original price is the best feeling. Lately, we find ourselves with a glut of expensive shoes from various designers. Here are some of our favorites!

Gallery Night Special: Meet C. Hawk Studios

Lela BoutiqueComment

One of the best parts of being located in the Third Ward is getting to be a part of great events like Gallery Night! Lela is hosting local artist Brittany Vogt, AKA C. Hawk Studios this Friday night to help the neighborhood celebrate.

"I'm an artist. From the Midwest.
This identity is a driving force behind my work."

Brittany has lived all over the Midwest in five different states, and graduated from UW-LaCrosse with a BA in art. Her degree also has specialties in drawing, printmaking, and ceramics. Some of her prints will be on display at Lela starting this week!

Milwaukee in all its lakeshore hugging, festival throwing, industrial sprawling, brewery touring and sport loving glory is now home.
— Brittany Vogt, a true Milwaukean spirit

"Violet"

Founded in 2013, C. Hawk Studios specializes in fine art, illustration, and design. "Portraiture as an exploration of identity is a central theme throughout my work...I am fascinated by visual nuances that imbibe a place, portrait, or character with it's own unique identity which in turn defines that person or place," says Brittany of her work. 

You can visit www.c-hawkstudios.com, her Facebook page, or her Instagram feed to keep up with her work! And be sure to come and visit us this weekend to meet her and see her work in person!

Love, Lela
