Urban Resort

Everyone by now has likely seen the latest mesh releases for Maitreya, which I obviously couldn't resist styling for you either.
Creator Onyx Leshelle told me that this fun new collection of versatile separates (from wedge boots to printed skirts + leather pants) was the result of 4-5 months of steady design work, and you can really see all the usual satisfying Maitreya details (from teeny buttons on blouse sleeves to zipper "pulls" on these wedge booties). Some flirty new hairs by Milana + Wasabi Pills helped dress up these smart, casual pieces, which to me, felt like what we urbanfolk might wear if we wanted to imagine doing the whole wintertime resort escape thang -- but we were really stuck in, say, a whitewashed loft in the city instead. *dreams of sunny beaches, frozen drinks + other tropical yummies*
One thing I've always appreciated about Maitreya is how Onyx LeShelle deliberately ventures into new color territory with each new release, like her new "Grape" and "Moss" hues that I'm showing in the backless "Athena" sweater in the 1st pic above. Check the tiny pockets tucked just underneath the buttie on these leather pants; a totally impractical, utterly fashionista touch that's tres urban chic. -- Btw this hat hair is an older Maitreya one that I couldn't bring myself to take off, once I saw how it smartened up these casual styles.

Now if only a magical P.J. (that's private jet to all us non-zillionaires) would show up at our door for a quick whisk down to warmer climes. Resort dreams love + fashionista kisses to all!
