Loving This Week: Shoe Pain Relief + a White Shirt Upgrade

Monday, February 08, 2016 • Permalink • 

Massimo Dutti Sweater - Raleigh Denim x Kate Spade Jeans - Sole Serum - Sofft Sandals - COS Shirt

In the mood for a bargain? This week I found a handful of pieces that will give your wardrobe a boost for under $100. I also heard about a new foot spray that’s designed to provide pain relief when the mid-day pinch sets in. That’s pretty fabulous. I really want to give it a try.

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

1. Massimo Dutti Boat Neck Sweater, $69.50

This Pin-worthy minimalist fine-knit wool/ cashmere blend sweater will layer well now, and stand on its own once spring sets in. It’s available in both this pretty grey shade and an even more spring-perfect cream color, and it’s super affordable.

Loving This Week: Lace Knickers + Korean Bathhouse Soap

Veronica Beard Dress - Everlane Sweater - Acne Studios Shoes - Binu Binu Soap - COS Lingerie

This week’s picks are definitely heavy in Swedish influence, including finds from two Stockholm-based fashion powerhouses that live on opposite ends of the affordability spectrum: Acne Studios and COS. Inspired options from a Canadian company that makes Korean bathhouse soap and an all-American fashion label helmed by same-name sisters-in-law round out the selections.

Check out all of the options floating around in my online shopping cart this week…

1. Veronica Beard Clara Silk Shirtdress, $550.00
This playful take on the classic shirtdress is much more interesting than your usual office fare, but no less appropriate. The asymmetrical placket and ruched hemline add just enough spice to keep things interesting. It’s from the Veronica Beard Resort 2016 collection, and currently available for pre-order.

Sale: Acne Studios Sweaters 40-70% Off

Tuesday, January 26, 2016 • Permalink • 

I'm ridiculously into the Acne Studios sweater piles that are popping up all over social media. Have you seen them? Seriously, they are a thing. On Instagram...

and on Pinterest...

I swear, one day it's going to come out that these pics are all planted by the marketing team at Acne Studios. If that's the case, hats off to that team. Really, they are brilliant marketing photos because they just make me want to buy lots of Acne sweaters.

If you've scouted out Acne Studios sweaters lately, you know: they don't come cheap. A full-priced sweater will set you back somewhere between $300.00 and $700.00, depending on the material used and the complexity of the design. So much for buying a whole pile. But, in an effort to make my (and your) Acne sweater pile dreams come true, I've rounded up a selection of sweaters from around the web, all marked 40% off or more. Check out my finds:

Loving This Week: Luxury Scents + Athleisure Sneaks

Monday, January 25, 2016 • Permalink • 

Cheap Monday Dress - Bond No. 9 Fragrance - Sarah and Sebastian Ring - Opening Ceremony x Vans Sneakers

Do you ever get nostalgic about beauty products? If you love experimenting with new products all of the time, you probably know exactly what I’m talking about. A perfect product that worked like a dream, but you just never got back around to using again. This week I’m feeling nostalgic about my signature scents, circa 2007. I think it might be time to revisit these classic fragrances.

In fashion news, an affordable knit dress that screams “effortless” and a delicate everyday gold ring are calling my name.

Here’s what’s taking up space in my online shopping cart this week…

1. Cheap Monday Repeal Dress in Dark Grey, $90.00
The crew neckline and straight midi cut make this cotton stretch dress perfect for weekend layering. The varied ribbed pattern gives it a luxe look. It’s also available in black for $95.00 and in striped black & white on sale for $69.99.

10 Designer Logo Tees That Will Make You Rethink Being Logo-Free

Tuesday, January 19, 2016 • Permalink • 

Just when you thought you’d never wear another logo tee again…

I feel you. I grew up during the height of logo mania. In high school, I’m not sure I even owned an article of clothing that didn’t feature a prominent visible logo. Guess, Z. Cavaricci, Esprit, B.U.M. Equipment, Benetton, and CK Calvin Klein were some of my favorites. As soon as the ’90s were over I happily banished logos from my closet.

Moschino Logo Tee

Fast-forward to present. The newest trend in designer logo tees is a graphic, black and white, faux-punk look that is oddly appealing to this minimalist. Paired with a black blazer, wide leg jeans, and pair of Saint Laurent pumps, these tees start to feel street style fresh. Could we be on the verge of a return of the logo? Check out these ten new finds and let me know what you think.
