Spotlight: Orla Kiely

Orla Kiely over the last few years has really exploded! Known for her bright patterns (most notably the signature stem print) and the use of laminated fabrics, Kiely has only been around since the 90's, but she is definitely making her mark in the fashion world.

clothing:



luggage:



accessories:



(yoga bag)

Her things are almost irresistible! The prices make it a little easier to abstain. I thought these bright bursts of color might cheer up this cloudy Sunday.
