It's that time of year again, where stores drop prices on all this seasons garments to prepare for the next's must-haves. Towards the end of each season I reevaluate my wardrobe and make a list of things I want to replace or acquire. And what better way to do that than with a good sale. J. Crew has added a ton of items to their final sale and here are a few of my favorites.
There was just a liiiittle bit of sunshine in NYC this weekend and it was such a tease as I woke up to snow (again) this morning. I haven't worn sunglasses in almost 4 months! I'm sure when the sun does finally come out for good, i'll have a vampire-like reaction and my skin will start to disintegrate its so pale! I have been looking for a new pair (style) of sunnies for a while now. I have never owned a pair or Ray-Bans and have always liked the aviator (Hello Top Gun) style, but always felt like they were too big for my face. That was before I stumbled upon this new style/version. I am obsessed with the reflective lenses and the different color options. This is sort of a step out of my comfort zone, but summer is when you can get crazy with styles, color, etc. So why not seize the opportunity, right? Picking a color is going to be one tough decision! Which are your favorite?
After all these years, I still don't know how I really feel about Valentine's Day. Do I like having a day for the sole purpose of my significant other telling me how special I am and how much he cares about me? Yes. Do I feel that he should be telling me/treating me this way all year round and not just on this one day? Absolutely!. My only "request" if you will, for this day is to go out to dinner and spend time together. I don't expect over the top treatment, just an acknowledgement of the day and wanting to spend time together.
Now that you know my undecided opinion on this holiday (I know you all were dying to know!) I thought I would pick out some fun options from Kate Spade you could wear for this romantic occasion. Some of my favorites are below, including a few I picked up this past weekend at their Madison Avenue store. XOXO
Hola!! Hello! Bonjour! Hallo! I have been drowning in work for the past few weeks and things are finally starting to slow down a bit. I have missed you all terribly and am so sorry for my absence! With all the ridiculous amount of snow we have been hit with this winter ( I now know what SAD is and feels like: for serious!), and the fact that I have worn tights for literally almost 4 months straight, Spring and Summer could not get here sooner! I am dreaming of sunny days, maxi dresses, sandals, and the beach!
You all know my love and history with Whiting & Davis, so it's no surprise that I just HAD to show you all their new Ariah Bracelet. They are done with the enameled mesh (similar to the Marion bracelet in this post), but are a flat and wider design. Another reason to add this to your jewelry collection? They are enamel on one side and gold on the other, making them reversible! You get two bracelets in one!! You could easily wear this bracelet alone, or if you wanted, stack with other gold or Whiting and Davis styles. The Spring / Summer collection is all about bright color on gold or platinum tone and vibrant pattern. Their inspiration this season was tribal and ethnic vibes using red, yellow, green, black and vivid blue tones, as well as pastel collection of bracelets gorgeous for a summer night. They retail for $105, $160, $250 (for the 1”, 1.5” and 2” widths) and all of them are reversible! The entire collection will be available in select boutiques around the US in February and online in March.
