Lookbook Love: Liesl Binx A/W 2014

IMG_4038.JPG I've been a fan of independent designer Liesl Binx for a while now (she was one of my first Five Faves interviewees), but I am in LOVE with her new A/W 2014 lookbook.  I can't get enough of the slightly gritty setting; the creative combination of sheer, crisp white with more traditional autumnal tones; and how she plays with volume and textures.  I never knew I needed a sheer white shirt for fall before, but now it feels like a must have.  Now I just have to decide whether I want a crop, a tunic, or a dress - decisions, decisions!  Keep reading for the full lookbook and a coupon code.
