The trend director at work recommended that I check out adorable Soho boutique Orla Keily when I was in New York last month. As it turns out, the Irish designer is well known for her clean, modern prints and feminine aesthetic, especially in London, where Orla Kiely is headquartered. I can't believe I hadn't heard of her until now. As a fan of mid-century-inspired design, this stuff is right up my alley.

In addition to flirty little dresses and retro handbags, she also sells a bunch of home items, like stationery, wallpaper, towels, etc. Good gift ideas for the pending holidays.
