Current Elliot has branched out from ripped destroyed jeans to swimsuits and dresses this season. As seen in the May 2009 issue with Drew Barrymore on the cover, Current Elliot has beautiful denim dresses and swimsuits out this season to lead the pack in the big everything is denim trend.
I love the dresses from Current Elliot, for the price point, the tailoring and styling is simply chic.
If you are looking for a great read for the winter holidays when you have a quiet moment, or when you are on the plane jetting off to your warm destination, check out The Piano Teacher by Janice Y.K. Lee.
Elle magazine had a great article on the inspiration of the book and it seems like just the dreamy book to tote with you on vacation this holiday season.
Here is some more info on this novel:
In the sweeping tradition of The English Patient, a gripping tale of love and betrayal set in war-torn Hong Kong.
In 1942, Will Truesdale, an Englishman newly arrived in Hong Kong, falls headlong into a passionate relationship with Trudy Liang, a beautiful Eurasian socialite. But their love affair is soon threatened by the invasion of the Japanese as World War II overwhelms their part of the world. Will is sent to an internment camp, where he and other foreigners struggle daily for survival. Meanwhile, Trudy remains outside, forced to form dangerous alliances with the Japaneseâ€”in particular, the malevolent head of the gendarmerie, whose desperate attempts to locate a priceless collection of Chinese art lead to a chain of terrible betrayals.
Ten years later, Claire Pendleton comes to Hong Kong and is hired by the wealthy Chen family as their daughterâ€™s piano teacher. A provincial English newlywed, Claire is seduced by the heady social life of the expatriate community. At one of its elegant cocktail parties, she meets Will, to whom she is instantly attractedâ€”but as their affair intensifies, Claire discovers that Willâ€™s enigmatic persona hides a devastating past. As she begins to understand the true nature of the world she has entered, and long-buried secrets start to emerge, Claire learns that sometimes the price of survival is love.
