Natalie Martin Summer 2017

My love of Natalie Martin‘s hand batik printed silk clothing continues . . . Last summer, I practically lived in her gorgeous indigo pieces and this season, I’m smitten with bottoms, like wrap skirts, shorts and lounge pants, in burgundy and red floral prints, some with the perfect pink accents. The lightweight quality of her fabric is perfect for …

Staud Spring 2017

Everything – I mean, everything – from Staud‘s latest collection has me fantasizing about traveling to a remote Mediterranean island, doing nothing but going to the beach, shopping at local markets while wearing cotton seersucker dresses, tie front button ups, and ruffled satin crepe camisoles. And let’s not forget a enamel and leather turtle belt and …

Amur Summer 2017

Fashion is the second most polluting industry in the world, after oil. Stew on that alarming fact for a second. So it makes sense that more and more designers are adapting a more conscious ethos, making environmentally aware changes to their sourcing methods and production procedures. Newcomer AMUR is another exciting label to enter the sustainable …

Kat Kim

Is it too early to start creating my holiday wish list? Because right now, all I want for Christmas is a gold thread ear pin from jewelry designer Kat Kim. Holy smokes. I’m obsessed with the unique design of this earring, which hooks over the top of the ear and pierces through a piercing on …

Ulla Johnson Fall 2017

If there’s one thing I’ve learned as long time member of Ulla Johnson’s unofficial fan club, it’s: if you see it and love it, buy it. As we all know, the words “sold out” can incite the worst kind of feelings . . . the kind that are synonymous with remorse and FOMO. So with …

Bembien Straw Bags

The straw bag. The it bag of summer. If you haven’t jumped on the trend train yet, or want to add to your growing collection, let me introduce you to Bembien. These super chic straw bags are intricately woven by artisanal weaving communities from Bali, Morocco and Vietnam. I love the fine details, like the leather straps …

The Scoop On The Hoop

Ok, so here’s the skinny on hoop earrings. Go thick! Thanks to designer Laura Lombardi, I’m ready to trade in my dainty earrings (only temporarily, of course) for a pair of her thick, medium sized gold hoop earrings. They’re made from hallow brass and only a little over 2 inches in diameter, which makes them …

Madewell x Tretorn Sneakers

Tretorn, founded in 1891 as rubber company in Sweden, got its start by making rain boots, hoses and bike petals. It wasn’t until the 1960s when they starting producing tennis balls, which eventually led to the manufacturing of tennis shoes. Thanks to tennis legend Björn Borg, their first sneaker Nylite made it the world’s first luxury …

Na Nin

After selling vintage clothing for years, from her Richmond, Virginia brick-and-mortar Na Nin, Kate Jennings started tinkering with handmade oil perfumes, candles and incense in 2014. She soon discovered she was onto something special, creating beautiful fragrances that were nostalgic reminders of her favorite memories, visions and feelings. This year, Kate has launched her first in-house …

LOÉIL

I’m riding that I’m-in-denial-that-summer-is-ending wave hard thanks to LOÉIL‘s lust worthy collection of cotton and linen blend clothing. The silhouettes of the Los Angeles based brand’s origami, fold-over trousers, asymmetrical mermaid skirts, and exaggerated cap sleeved blouses are just too chic. Best of all, it’s all so reasonably priced – most dresses are under $200 …
