Last time we checked in with LA designer Stefanie Betro, she was busy creating maxi dresses and sweet little rompers that were paraded around town on Hollywood starlets and bloggers alike. Though no longer working with that label, Betro Simone, she's got a new effort that's poised to earn just as many fashion-loving fans.
With Thieves Like Us, Betro is the sole creative force for a collection that is thankfully tinged with the '70s vibe we admired in her last crop of clothing. This means deeply-cut jumpsuits, slinky wrap dresses, and more with plenty of the fun prints she's been known for creating.
Another trait we're happy that carried over from her last label? Accessible price points. Pieces in the collection start at $28 for a knit top and top off at just $150 for some dresses and jumpsuits. And while customers will have to wait until next month for the website to offer e-commerce options, some garments are now shipping to Nasty Gal (under the label Stefanie Betro, until the official Spring launch in August) and will soon be shoppable there.
And on a styling side note, we've already got the perfect shoe in mind to match this sultry '70s sensibility — and they happen to be made by another local label we love. Your summer date night look is now sorted.
