We Are Obsessed with Nigel Who?!

Pie Crust skirt (available in black or white) & signature Nigel Who? tank - coming soon to Simply Smashing!

Designer, Ronnie Bogel of Nigel Who? and his fab frocks, featured in SCENE Magazine

Cloud Skirt in gold, with Asymmetrical/Off Shoulder Top in black

Black Gown...coming soon

I am so excited, I don't know where to begin! Guess I'll begin at the beginning...

Simply Smashing! was invited to the Nigel Who? fashion show 2011. Now, I had not yet heard of Nigel Who? or it's innovative designer, Mr. Ronnie Bogel, but my interest was sparked. After all, word was out via two of our fave fashionistas/style bloggers (MODE Bay Area and The Stunning Post - find them on Facebook - you'll be glad you did!) that this was the designer to watch and the fashion show to see! So, off we went (Ashley, my Simply Smashing! cohort, and I) to see the show - and what a show it was! See for yourself...

Fast forward a couple of weeks... Ronnie and I were quickly connected and, thus, began the whirlwind of Nigel Who? coming to Simply Smashing! Just last weekend, I had the pleasure of meeting this passionate man and designer of exquisite masterpieces who describes his work as "Classic Innovative," in person at our boutique. We chit-chatted about Nigel Who?, Simply Smashing! and general falderal, all the while introducing Ronnie to customers as they perused the boutique. What a delight!

Did you know, Simply Smashing! has polished up our focus on fabulous local and indie designers? Ronnie Bogel and Nigel Who? happen to be both! I am a fierce believer in always (and I mean ALWAYS) being true to oneself - in life and in fashion. Ronnie, too! Dare I say it...great minds think alike! ;)

Long story a little bit shorter - Simply Smashing! is heart-deep in a love affair with Nigel Who? and we are beyond-excited to announce a partnership made in style heaven. Beginning this Friday, August 19 2011, our boutique will be sporting TWO different looks from Nigel Who?, along with the fashion show (see link above) video playing for customers...all day, every day. Not only will we soon carry several of these incredible looks in the boutique (I'm telling you, the Pie Crust Skirt and the Cacoon Dress are to-die-for - and wait 'til you see the coat!), but we will happily take special orders for any of the looks on the video. Any time!

Swing by, Daaahlings - Nigel Who? is Aaahh-Maaa-Zzing!!

Coming Soon: Rock N The Trend!

The design of these baubles is so intricate and detailed, at first, you don't realize they are fashioned with something quite unexpected. After a closer look, you say to yourself, "It almost looks as if...why, yes, they ARE made from guitar picks!"

I met with the talented (not to mention beautiful, artsy and oh-so-clever) designer of Rock N The Trend Jewelry this week and she showed me her wares. There was nothing I didn't love. Seriously. Loved all of it!

After playing jewelry dress up with Lisa (honestly, I was giddy with excitement - like a kid in a candy store), I scored an A-MA-ZING cuff bracelet, which I can't keep myself from wearing. With everything!

Needless to say, Rock N The Trend is coming to Simply Smashing! We'll get our first pieces in a couple of weeks - feels like FOREVER away! Meanwhile, I'll be rockin' my cuff bracelet and showing it off, every chance I get (neener neener neener)!

To stay in the Simply Smashing loop, join our mailing list at and "LIKE" us on Facebook at

We'll be blogging more about new and upcoming jewelry lines - a very eclectic mix - all fabulous! And stay tuned for our new denim line, coming soon...

P.S. Thank you to Rommellyn of The Stunning Post (who claims Simply Smashing is "her" boutique, but that's another blog all together) for the introduction! Find her on Facebook at!/thestunningpost
