Rag and Bone Jeans - Kork-Ease Boots - David Yurman Ring - Fresh Face Masks - Lush Dress

A couple little luxuries have crept into this week’s roundup, including Rag & Bone’s latest foray into the world of ultra-premium denim. Luckily for our pocketbooks, not all luxuries require a hefty down payment. Fresh’s new multi-masking set includes three luxurious best-selling masks, and will set you back less than $60.

Check out all my favorite online shopping finds for this week…

1. Rag & Bone Rbw15 Jeans, $350.00
This is the premium denim find of the season. This is 14-ounce custom made Japanese Nihon Menpu selvedge denim fashioned into a high-rise cropped straight jean like only Rag & Bone can make. It’s perfection.

Lemaire Sweater - Everlane Boots - Calpack Packing Cubes - Sephora Mascara - Botkier Handbag

So, I started a new job last week. It’s my first new “day job” in just over ten years. I forgot how exhausting it is to change workplaces. New computers that don’t work, figuring out a nonsensical phone system, “meeting” a dozen new people via conference call whose names you’ll never remember. The struggle is real.

To combat the second-Monday-of-new-job blues, I’m online window shopping for happy fall finds, like affordable point-toe boots that are a dead ringer for Acne Studios. And mascara multi-packs. And packing cubes, because it’s never too early to plan for vacation.

1. Lemaire Fitted Sweater, $557.00
Everything about this sweater works. The rich pumpkin color is gorgeous. The fitted shape is modern, and those buttons are fun without being too whimsical for work.

5 Ways To Rock Fall’s Velvet Boot Trend

Thursday, September 21, 2017 • Permalink • 

Velvet boots are one of fall’s most stand-out and most wearable trends. Sound like contradiction? It is, kind of. The secret to straddling being both a statement piece and a closet staple is pairing a classic shape with dramatic velvet fabric. For this post, I’ve picked five classic boot shapes that have been remade in velvet for fall, giving you five different ways to wear this fabulous trend.

A mod block heel is a classic minimalist silhouette, so it’s particularly interesting to see it done up in beautiful pink-red velvet. I picture this book paired with a traditionally minimalist black, white, and grey ensemble.

Here’s what’s been turning my head in the online stores this week…

These Are Ulta’s Best-Selling Concealers Right Now

Tuesday, September 12, 2017 • Permalink • 

If I had to guess, I’d say concealer is the one makeup product that everyone uses from time to time. Even if you hate foundation and think mascara is a torture device, it’s hard to resist the allure of being able to downplay under eye circles or cover up a rogue blemish, right?

The trick is finding your personal best concealer. What works on one person could be totally wrong for the next. But, if you ask enough people what their top pick concealer is, the wisdom of the crowd will point you in the right direction. With that in mind, these are the five best-selling concealers at Ulta right now…

This Ulta-exclusive hydrating wand concealer can double as a highlighter or contour, depending on which of the fourteen shades you pick. Users praise its long-lasting formula and smooth application, with one verified buyer saying “…it looks totally natural. It’s literally magic in a tube.”
