I remember being that way about exciting beauty lanches but this time around the paradigm has shifted as I set up an alarm for the Atlantic-Pacific x Halogen Collection launch at Nordstrom. Not to sound like a fangirl here but I was always inspired by Blair Eadie and her colorful style. Even though we never met in person, I always felt that she has similar taste in clothing, with emphasis on girly but geometrical and mostly colorful looks.
So when I started seeing her posts on Instagram about the upcoming collaboration with Halogen, I was all about it. I often purchase Halogen clothes anyways and with Blair’s creative direction and impeccable sense of style, I knew that the Atlantic-Pacific x Halogen Collection would be amazing!
And it’s certainly is. I’m not gonna tell you a long story of how I wanted to purchase every single item from the fall 2019 collection. Based on the collage of the actual items that I purchased, you will see that I pretty much bought everything — and so excited to receive my package!
This fall, I’m trying to build my capsule fall wardrobe that consists of beige and nudes, as well as plaid. That’s why I picked not the most colorful options from the collection but rather classic print options. If you are looking for adding some color to your fall wardrobe, there are definitely options. Hey, it’s Blair Eadie style we are talking about — so you can get all the cutest prints and color combos to add to your collection.
While I didn’t see any items in person yet, my first impression was that all the items from the collection look very expensive. But the price point of items from the collection is under $250, with the majority of items going under $100. I mean, we will see how the pieces feel on the body, but from a first glance, this price point sounds very appealing.
I also appreciate that many of the models from the Atlantic-Pacific x Halogen Collection are suitable for curvier girls. That’s certainly the way to launch a fashion line so everyone can enjoy wearing it! For your convenience, I’ll add the links to plus-size options of the items that I purchased so these are easier to find.
That was number one item on my wishlist and I’m thrilled that I had a chance to pick it before it’s sold out! First of all, plaid print is BIG this season and I wanted to add a plaid blazer to my collection anyways. But those blush faux-fur cuffs (you can wear the blazer with or without them) totally stole my heart. Obsessed!
Plus Size: from 1X to 3X.
At this point, I have in my collection every nude and black pump you can imagine. But plaid ones? Not yet! I saw how Blair styled those with matching tights and I was sold — how stunning does it look?
Price Point: $99.95 + free shipping. It also comes in black and smoke pink.
Style With: Plaid Tights — how cute!
You know my obsession with bows (hey, I even called my puppy business Bow Tie Pet Club, LOL!) and this blouse was on top of my wishlist too. I couldn’t decide whether I prefer it in blush pink or black and white, so I picked both. It’s such a statement piece I’m sure I can find the ways to wear both styles.
Price Point: $89 + free shipping. It comes in white with black bows and blush pink all over.
Plus Size: from 1X to 3X.
In my attempt to have more pants in my wardrobe, I picked a pair of these high-waisted plaid trousers with buttons on the sides. It seems to me that these will match any and every neutral top and cashmere sweater in my collection. Also, did I tell you that I’m obsessed with plaid this season?
Price Point: $99 + free shipping.
Plus Size: comes in sizes from 0 to 18 (similar to 16W).
Guys, I can’t even tell you how long I’ve been hunting for a pair of blush pattern leather oxfords! From what I see in pictures, the shade is PERFECT. Now I just need to pray that they fit right and are comfy to wear.
Price Point: $109.95 + free shipping. It also comes in black, plaid, blush, and red.
Style With: anything and everything from the collection, but especially Button Detail Kick Flair Pants.
Not a fan of black tights? These fall-style ones with two versions of the plaid print are everything! I picked two pairs because I’m obsessed — keep in mind that the British Suiting Plaid style is currently back-ordered.
Price Point: $19 + free shipping.
Style With: Helenah Mary Jane Pump in Plaid.
This blush pink belt sounds like a perfect way to style the majority of flare skirts in my collection. That way, you introduce an additional color in your look and, if needed, can wear skirts that a bit too big on you.
Price Point: $49 + free shipping. It also comes in brown croc and red.
Style With: Pleated Croc Faux Leather Midi Skirt in any shade!
