Madewell Boots - Saint Laurent Sunglasses - Plum Pretty Sugar Pajamas - Isabel Marant Bracelet - Club Monaco Coat

Do you ever have those shopping experiences where you can get your mind off the object of your desire, yet you can’t quite bring yourself to lay down the plastic? Yeah, I’ve been having one of those weeks. There’s this pair of exquisite Saint Laurent sunglasses occupying my mind. I share them here for the greater good – they are definitely priced right.

In other shopping news, there is the matter of the perfect little wool coat Alicia Vikander was snapped wearing last week. A must-buy, for sure.

Check out all of my favorite online shopping finds for the week…

1. Madewell The Marco Chelsea Boot, $238.00
What do you get when you put a classic Chelsea boot on a wooden clog sole? Surprisingly, not the hot mess you’d expect. These boots are quirky and charming in all the right ways. They’ll look fab with cropped jeans for fall.

New Label Love: Amour Vert Crafts Sustainable Elevated Basics

Tuesday, October 18, 2016 • Permalink • 

Amour Vert - Linda Balti

San Francisco has been experiencing a bit of a fashion renaissance lately, and, really, it’s about time. The city that once birthed the iconic brands Levi’s, Esprit, and Gap has spent most of the last twenty years being known the most unfashionable major city in North America. But, over the past few years, the San Francisco fashion scene has come back to life as the pulsing center of the slow fashion movement. Now I can easily rattle off nearly a dozen sustainable, ethical fashion labels that call San Francisco home.

One of my favorite San Francisco fashion labels is Amour Vert. This socially responsible brand combines a gift for beautifully elevated basics with ethical practices like predominately American manufacturing, non-toxic dyes, sustainable fabrics, and a zero-waste philosophy. Need another reason to love Amour Vert? All domestic online orders ship free from San Francisco, and returns are free too!

Loving This Week: Street Style Lace-Ups + a Suitcase Upgrade

Monday, October 17, 2016 • Permalink • 

HOPE Sweater - Everlane Shoes - Rag and Bone Handbag - Glossier Lipstick - Away Suitcase

I’m having a Shopaholic moment (the book, not the disaster of a movie). Similar to the heroine, Becky Bloomwood, I’m figuring out quite late in the game that shopping for luggage is a lot of fun. Once you look past the boring utilitarian bags available at the local big box store, there are some pretty fabulous options out there. Current obsession: Away, a new line of luxe suitcases at not-so-luxe prices.

In other news, I’ve totally fallen for the Glossier hype. Their Generation G lipstick is calling my name.

The rest of my favorite online shopping finds for the week…

1. HOPE Caitlyn Sweater, $345.00

I first fell for Swedish label HOPE last year, when the Grand Sweater was all the rage on Pinterest. After a fairly involved online search, I snagged one in black. This new 100% boiled wool Caitlyn sweater is in the running to be my second HOPE purchase.

Splurge/ Steal: The Black Quilted Bomber Jacket

Wednesday, October 05, 2016 • Permalink • 

The bomber jacket, a throwback style from the late '80s and early '90s, has emerged as on of the hottest trends of the year. And, like any crazy-popular trend, it's available in a huge variety of materials, colors, and prices.

Although military-style khaki green, varsity-inspired, and embroidered seem to be the big hits, I've been gravitating toward simpler designs. I really love the Acne Studios Azura Boiled Wool Bomber and Topshop's super streamlined satin option. I'm also deeply in love with the black quilted bomber jacket with goldtone hardware. So chic. So Saint Laurent, right?

Madewell Coat - Sephora Favorites Skincare - Adidas by Stella McCartney Sneakers - Sarah Chloe x GOOP Ring - Everlane Sweater

Of the 300+ online shopping related emails and press releases I waded through today, my favorite was the announcement from Everlane that they are lowing the price of their classic cashmere crewneck sweater. Just in time for the first cool days of fall. Such a treat.

In beauty news, Sephora just dropped a bunch of new Sephora Favorites collections. My favorite is called out here, but they’re all worth a quick browse.

Check out all of my favorite online shopping finds for the week…

1. Madewell Delancy Blanket Coat, $175.00 after coupon (was $250.00)

This new coat has a cozy blanket fit that reminds me of the much pricier Vince label. It feels like at steal at $250.00, but it’s 30% off with code GOODBUY through 10/3 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
