The Fashion Magpie Brock Collection 1

Obsession: The Brock Collection.

I am smitten with everything the high-end label Brock Collection puts out.  I just cannot get enough of its old-world, romantic, couture sensibility, and — you know me and florals, and they do a lovely floral.  The line was founded by a married couple who met while studying at Parsons School of Design (my sister’s alma mater!), and they artfully describe their brand as “a rarefied space of lived-in romance and thoughtful whimsy; it connects the dazzling (and not always easy to traverse) threads between uptown polish and boardwalk ease.”

I first learned about the line through its “mommy and me” collaborations for Moda Operandi and Maisonette, and I swooned over the thought of myself and mini decked out for a summer wedding in them.

But I quickly began to aspire to its lovely read to wear pieces, available at Moda Operandi, Net A Porter, and Neiman Marcus.  I would die to wear this peplum-waist floral dress or this lace-trimmed floral midi (on sale!) or this taffeta maxi.

And I love the idea of pairing this statement blouse with a trim white pencil skirt for an elegant look.

If The Brock Collection is a little out of reach right now, I have been swooning over the pretty and far more affordable styles from the label Valencia & VineThis yellow top reminds me an awful lot of the style shown just above — but is $125.  I also love this maxi, this asymmetrical midi, and this bow-shouldered top.

These heels would go perfectly with any of these styles — and they’re on sale!

Finally, don’t forget your floral earrings.  I snagged these and these, but these are a steal.

P.S.  I love that these dresses would work for a town mouse or a country mouse 🙂

P.P.S.  Are you a rule follower?

  1. “…threading between uptown polish and boardwalk ease.” Love it! Who would have thought to reference the boardwalk? I hadn’t heard of the line before, so thank you for putting it on our radar.

    1. I loved that phrasing, too — so elegant! I want one of everything pls and thank you. xo

  2. Brock Collection makes some true beauties! Their denim looks cool, too — that was how I first heard of their line, on Man Repeller, I think. 🙂

    I’d been looking for a beautiful floral dress to wear to a baby shower in mid-June, but hadn’t found anything just right — that midi dress from Valencia & Vine could be perfect!

    1. Ooh good! I’m super into the V&V pieces! Let me know if you end up going with one. xo
