BB Dakota Coats turn up the heat in the November 2011 Issue of Cosmopolitan!!!
Cosmopolitan features our BB Dakota Grayson Coat with a ribbon flower embellished dressed in a dusty lavender hue. Cool charcoals, ivories, and obsidians marry together in the textured tweed of the Grayson Coat, making it an ideal topper for the pale icy lilac of the intricate frock. The Grayson’s high mandarin collar will keep the wind away while its subtly skirted tiered peplum will lend an elegant silhouette to any outfit.
BB Dakota’s Bradford Coat also caught the eyes of the Cosmopolitan fashion editors! The Bradford takes the classically stylish silhouette of a trench coat, and adds a lush oversized faux fur collar that gives it an air of unmistakable glamour. For additional versatility, the luxe faux fur collar is removable for when the weather thaws. If you don’t relish the idea of blending into a sea of puffy down filled polyester this winter, then stand out, stay chic, and look cool while feeling warm in the ivory Bradford Coat.
OK! Magazine gives us the details on how to recreate Kim Kardashian’s bright and bold scarlet outfit (for a fraction of the price!). Kim pairs her rich red frock with pewter and grey accessories.
Smoky rhinestones, gunmetal metallics, and snakeskin mary jane stilettos are paired with the geranium colored Audry Dress. Its high jewel neckline pays homage to the silhouettes of the sixties. A matching belt complete with buckle and subtle metallic grommets cinch the waist to create a dramatic silhouette. We love how Kim Kardashian inspired a glamorous styling of the Audry as featured above. The Audry will look equally chic with ballet flats and a thick wool sweater for a more casual look. The versatile chicness of the Audry Dress is sure to satisfy the spectrum of your styling cravings!

The Bostwick Coat by BB Dakota featured on @Theviewtv!!!
We are so excited to see our BB Dakota Bostwick Coat featured on The View! The vivid hues of the Bostwick’s southwestern pattern are sure to keep you cozy in a layer of blanket wool while brightening up a dreary wintery day. Even when the wind chills start to rise, the faux fur trimmed hood of the Bostwick Coat will ensure a warm refuge from the blustery atmosphere.
We love how the Bostwick is paired above with taupe cigarette pants, khaki suede booties, and a caramel colored mini bag. The Bostwick would also look fab with some black skinny pants and a pair of tough leather boots with stacked wooden heels. If you don’t want to forsake your love of print and pattern when the weather gets chilly, then the Bostwick Coat is for you!

These days a good leopard print is as versatile and as eternally chic as the neutral fashion staples of black, white, and the spectrum of beige. BB Dakota’s Sydney Sweater Dress offers a spotted leopard design of inky dots framed by a rich cocoa taupe hue.
The sumptuously soft cashmere blend of the Sydney Sweater Dress is constructed in a relaxed silhouette that is perfect for layering over a pair of thick tights and a killer pair of tall boots. Throw on a statement making belt to cinch the waist for a more figure hugging look. The Sydney Sweater Dress is perfect for those dark winter days that chill to the bone—simply throw on this spotted pullover and feel ready to combat the cold whilst looking effortlessly stylish (and fierce)!
Haruki Murakami’s1Q84 sold out its first printing when it was first released in Japan last year. Initially published in three hardcover volumes, 1Q84 will be released in North America and the UK on October 25, 2011 in one epic opus of 928 pages. 1Q84 references George Orwell’s 1984 in both in title and plot, as 1Q84 follows a man and a woman searching for each other in a loose model of 1984’s Winston and Julia.
What’s better than a dystopic story featuring star crossed lovers? A 928 page long dystopic story featuring star crossed lovers! We are huge fans of Murakami and can’t wait to crack open this hotly awaited tome.
BB Dakota’s Audry Dress is featured in the November 2011 issue of Lucky Magazine! The style and shopping gurus at Lucky lay out the basics of how to “Layer Like a Pro.” Can you spot our bright poppy hued frock among these staple layering pieces?
Our bold box pleated dress is a standout piece in the top row of key wardrobe pieces!
The Audry Dress gets down to business when layered under a sharply tailored blazer with a contrasting collar.
A caramel colored jacket, loafer pumps, and crossbody bag emphasize the warm bright red of the Audry Dress. Conversely, pair the Audry Dress with black layering pieces for a cooler toned look.
We love this casual and cozy styling of the Audry Dress. A flannel button down and wintery woolen sweater layered over the Audry Dress will have you looking as cool as the freezing weather!

After almost five years since the release of her immensely popular album in 2007, The Reminder, Feist released her fourth album, Metals, on October 4th. The first single from Metals, ‘How Come You Never Go There’ showcases Leslie Feist’s rich smoky vocals against deep bass horns, delicate piano, and softly beating drums. ‘How Come You Never Go There’ paints a seductively swaying and hauntingly beautiful narrative of lovelorn loneliness—it’s the perfect soundtrack for walking through the fiery hued fallen leaves of October.
@BlaireEadieBee styles the BB Dakota Halsey to perfection!!!
Blair Eadie of Atlantic-Pacific has garnered the admiration and accolades of the fashion community with her daring and creative personal style. Blair takes the BB Dakota Halsey, a party ready cocktail dress, and expertly fashions a chic day look by layering a fresh checked button up over the aqua and ruby printed jacquard.
Blair’s mix and match ensemble is highlighted by her signature armful of bracelets and statement making pearl bib necklace. A pair of navy blur lace up velvet heels adds luxe glamour to Blair’s daytime outfit. We love how Blair gets maximum wearability from her wardrobe by wearing pieces in transformative ways. She inspires us to look at our closet with an eye for unexpected combinations and endless possibilities.
