One of the (very few) negative parts about studying abroad is missing the awesome events that are happening on campus. I don’t like the term FOMO (fear of missing out), but sometimes it’s applicable. Mardi Gras this weekend, for example, makes me wish I could fly back to the US for three days, see my friends, hang out on Bourbon Street, and be back in Sevilla by Monday. Another one of these events is happening this week, and I am extremely jealous of all who are on campus to enjoy it. The event I am referring to is Greek Week, organized by the NYC based designer LEONA. LEONA recently opened their Nashville flagship store on 12 South, one of my favorite streets in Nashville (hello Jeni’s, Burger Up, and Imogene and Willie). What appeals to me most about LEONA is their design process. Their prints and fabrics are custom, hand drawn, and painted by the designer, Lauren Leona, in their NYC studio. The result of this care and craftsmanship is a unique collection, composed of garments that are modern, feminine, and versatile. Every piece in their spring 2014 collection is distinct and beautifully executed, making their clothing easy to wear and sophisticated, a hard balance to achieve.
This entire week LEONA is offering incredible deals to the Greek women on Vanderbilt’s campus. New arrivals are a full 25% off and sale is an addition 10% off. Keep reading to see my favorite pieces from this spring 2014 collection!
The contrast between bright primary colors and black and white works perfectly here. Not to mention the genius side-paneling going on. This one’s a winner.
As the weather warms up, I’m looking to add polished yet cool pieces to my wardrobe. These shorts keep the sophisticated feel and will help you transition from winter to spring.
It’s interview season WOO!!! Dressing for interviews however…usually not so exciting. This jacket makes dressing professionally and polished a piece of cake.
Don’t miss out on this great opportunity!
