I have a new-found obsession- Australian brands, especially Finders Keepers. The line was founded in 2009 and is no stranger to fun and feminine elements. From peek-a-boo cutouts that reveal just enough skin without being too scandalous to unexpected silhouettes. The line already has a celebrity following, such as: Giuliana Rancic, Nicky Hilton, Demi Lovato, Kendall Jenner and others. I had the pleasure of working with the lovely ladies from The Shop PR (who handle the label) and they sent me a few pieces from the Spring 2012 collection “Future Icon.” I received the Changing Skies Short, Let Love Down Maxi Dress and the Just Dance Dress. At first glance, I thought the shorts was a cute skirt with ruffles around the hips, but after realizing they were shorts, it just made them even cuter and quirky. The material is light and breathable and sits perfectly at the waist. It can easily be dressed casually with a tank or dressed up with a fun top and heels. The maxi dress is elegant…period. I received the dress in ‘Sunset’, which is equivalent to the Pantone 2012 Color of the Year- ‘Tangerine Tango.’ The dress is simple, except for the tasteful lace cutout in the front and bare cutout in the back. I just love that the cut in the bodice bares my finest assets. The Just Dance Dress was the last dress I received. It has a sheer lace bodice with scalloped peter pan collar and a lovely pleated skirt. This dress is meant to be snazzed up a bit, whether it be a bright or neon-colored cami, a fun headband and a pair of Jeffrey Campbells. Finders Keepers is deliciously exciting and I’m looking forward to seeing the collection at the stores here in the States. For more information, check out the website.
