This is {Fall 2013} at Revival Iowa City.

{Fall 2013} has officially come to Revival.  Cozy layers, nineties flashbacks, olives & camos, lush fabrics, and a gorgeous Fall color palette are the name of the game.  This season's fashion is all about the cute, cozy, and more than a touch of pretty.  Take a look!  We think you will love it.


A bold statement coat, a lovely classic printed dress, a vintage statement necklace, and the perfect bag. Golden Fall is vintage inspired and all pretty.


A nineties inspired black & cream baby doll dress from Dear Creatures paired with our Revival x Baggu exclusive leather drawstring pouch (oh my, it is the perfect going out size), handmade and simple jewelry from Dinosaur Toes, and cozy over the knee socks make this a look to last all winter.  


Mixing sweet and tough is the basis of our Burgundy & Camo look.  An on-trend Camo Jacket matched with a sweet sweater from Dear Creatures, a mini skirt, a pair of lace up work boots, vintage black sunnies, and a soft knit cherry red and maroon scarf for a POP of color.  This urban look will last through Spring.


Shorts in winter?  Oh yes, it can be done and it is CUTE!  Pair with your favorite tights and bring new life to your favorite pair of short pants.  While your high waisted summer cut-offs will work, Revival has selected styles designed for wear all Fall, Winter, and Spring.  We have paired our Diamond Jacquard Shorts with a rust colored top from Everly, our own Revival Custom Made Goosetown locket, and this gorgeously classic textured Windsor coat from Tulle.   


The Spring & Summer 2013 trend of mixing prints is alive and well going into Fall and Winter.  This is trend can be a challenge, but never fear!  Blending two different types of prints with a common color palette can be a snap.  We paired our mod inspired (with the cutest orange trimmed collar) Diamond Dress from Yumi with a Floral and Gold handbag and chunky Woven Friendship bracelets from Serefina for a polished and sophisticated daytime/work/dinner with friends look.  


Tribal...southwestern...western...boho; these terms have been thrown around a lot these last couple of years.  This Fall we reintroduce these popular motifs, but with a twist.  Western and tribal patterns are combined with urban and glam touches to create a cleaner, more chic Western Bohemian look - an arrowhead pendant looped with a high shine gold chain, feathers paired with fine gold mesh, tribal knits with a sharp olive army style.  Voila!  Familiar trends become new again.

***SOLD OUT (already!!) WE APOLOGIZE :( 


Your favorite pair of jeans, a cute and cozy sweater,  a dynamic everyday necklace, and a fantastic topper make for the classic Fall Saturday outfit.  Our Meerkat sweater from Yumi in trendy black and white colors managers to be smart and cozy at the same time.  


The Nineties as a style trend is back, and with it is velvet, one of the lushest fabrics around.  We adore this simple crushed velvet dress in Merlot, a gorgeous fall color.  A little romantic and a little dramatic, we paired it with our vegan leather Moto jacket for a bit of an edge.  Dress it up with a gold and go out of the town!

Happy Fall friends!
