TAKING KZ OCEANSIDE

We are very familiar with Karolina's typical designs, rooted in dark edge and European minimalism. This summer we take a twist on her designs by showcasing them with a Caribbean backdrop creating a beautifully refined beach look. Her feminine tailoring and exquisite lines felt perfect in this environment of clean aesthetic and beauty! The Oculus Dress in this deep jade color remind us to enjoy simple pleasures - of the highest quality.  We admire Karolina not only for her talent, but the fact that she continues to make personal connections with her customers at regular in store events here at LIBERTÉ. She values our feedback, as well as our clients which has taken the mutual respect to new heights.

THE KIND OF LINES YOU WON'T WANT TO HIDE

Just look at these lines! I love the architecture of the top of this dress and accessorizing could only go one way- complimentary. We wanted unique pieces that are simple and beautiful to really keep the dress the main focus. While it's required in order to have a finished look, jewelry should always add, not subtract or distract.  The warm gold on the cool jade mimics the golden sunshine and brilliant Caribbean waters of our destination, bringing a refreshing beach vibe to a sophisticated ensemble. You may have some vivid bikini lines laying underneath this dress, but no one will have to know when you're covered in elegance!

ORGANIC GOODS

When we want safe, modern apothecary goods crafted from organic and wild harvested ingredients, we turn to the Little Barn Apothecary. Their products are completely natural and simple- but they work amazingly well!  One of our favorites for the trip to the islands, was this cooling mineral mist. The coconut and mint scented spray is instantly cooling and hydrating. We used it post sun a few times, and post workout too, to revitalize. The nourishing body mist with fresh virgin coconut, pure organic aloe water, rich ocean minerals and cooling mint is a unique combination that provides the skin with instant soothing hydration. We felt immediate relief from our sunny adventures in the sand- and didn't have to rely on ducking into air conditioned lobbies and seeking out ice cold bottles of water. Although, we did that too ;)

BEST THING SINCE SLICED BREAD

Sliced bread was a almost a total failure. Can you believe that? No one would buy it. It was invented and patented, but no one was buying it. The people didn't know why they even needed sliced bread until Wonder started marketing it correctly and people realized the benefit. The convenience of the uniformed pre sliced loaves meant people could have one more and then one more after that, so sales skyrocketed. Housewives could serve their entire family in a flash without worrying about slicing a thumb off in their rush.  We want everyone to know about Karolina Zmarlak's ready to wear fashion line. One of our favorite things, working in retail sales, is seeing a woman's face light up when she steps out of the dressing room in KZ's cutting edge designs. Her precision tailoring and fabric fusions enhance the feminine silhouette creating a loyal fan out of each woman who owns any of her pieces. It's an eye opening experience - and a clear reason why she has such a cult following!

MAKE IT POP

Oh how we love this Oculus cut denim top from KZ! Here we are again, juxtaposing her designs from the edgy New York City's heavy use of noir and applying her razor sharp lines and precision tailoring to a new ambiance.  In complete contrast, the setting is ocean side and the style is denim peplum top with white shorts. We love the fresh take on this collection - adding the vibrant colors of the scenery as a gorgeous backdrop only makes the KZ top pop even more.  The soft stretch fabric makes the super lux top easy to wear, so you don't have to work so hard to look this amazing! Brighten it up even more with a long gold tassel necklace and the whole look is complete- completely amazing!

ICING ON THE CAKE

If you have been drawn to the beauty of the Oculus collection, this may be the icing on the cake for you! The exact execution you've been waiting for.  In pure white, the crisp clean shape and modernist tailoring is created for the real woman. It's practical and wearable while being of the highest quality and exquisite design. It can be worn casually like this All American look with distressed denim shorts- who doesn't love white tops and denim, right? But this top has so much potential. We would love to see it styled with a black pencil skirt for something more serious and sophisticated. But, for today, lets grab our shades and hit the sand!

NOT YOUR MOTHER'S FLIP FLOPS

We are so glad we've moved away from calling shoes that go between the toes "thongs". It got pretty awkward there for a few years a while back when the old term was still lingering and we were all begging, red faced, "Mom, please stop calling my flip flops THONGS!" (especially in front of our friends, or worse yet, boyfriends!) Now, gracefully past that, we can appreciate some gorgeous shoes that we can wear with shorts and tanks. The color palette and intricate beading of these made us giddy because they paired with all the styles we packed on our trip to St Maarten so well. Not only that, but they are comfortable, and you really want your shoes to elevate your style - not your pain level!
