Introducing LIBRARY


My favorite vintage curator (remember these floral pants?), Lauren Lail, has debuted a gorgeous vintage inspired clothing collection that speaks to me big time. It's feminine, it's simple, it's really quite perfect. I stopped in to visit her a couple of weeks ago and have been holding on to this post until her e-commerce site launched (bc I know it sucks to tell y'all about lines that you all can't shop). Well, it's up - so I'm super excited to introduce you to LIBRARY by Lauren Lail!!

Designed & modeled by Lauren (i know, sometimes it just doesn't seem fair), the whole collection was inspired by a painting that Lauren's friend and Novel shop partner, Way Way Allen, painted for Lauren using a color palette inspired by Lauren's favorite vintage top. Pretty cool, huh?


Those blue josie shorts up there are my favorite piece from the collection. So much so that I own them. Anyone remember seeing them on my instagram?


But to be honest I'm quite partial to the peachy nude jacket and that embroidered willa dress, too. It's all beautiful, really. So go check out Lauren's entire LIBRARY collection. If you're in Charleston you can check it out at Novel. Congrats girlfriend!

PS, if you're as enamored by those lucite/brass rods as I am, then you might be happy to see that I found an etsy seller that makes similar ones that aren't all that crazy expensive :)

I can't even deal with those shorts. Everything in her line is muted, sophisticated, and so feminine. I love it. Definitely have this bookmarked and will be stopping by soon. Hopefully I can get my hands on some of those pieces when I'm in Charleston in August!

I really like much of the Library collection. The Josie shorts are awesome, thanks for putting up the photo and letting me shop just a little bit. I have taken a trip over to Library to do some browsing. I really like the basic, sophisticated look of all of these pieces.
