Get Laced

You know what I’m kind of feeling lately? Lace-up flats and heels. Even though there’s something a bit fussy about getting your feet into shoes like this, there’s also a freshness (both novel and cool) about this style. Color me intrigued. My current favorite is the Loeffler Randall cheetah print lace up flats. Love the […]

Solid Rose Gold

Rose gold may be hot for hair color, but using it as a shiny color update on slide loafers is brilliant. Tibi’s Denni loafers are pretty stellar in black or white – I think Emma Watson wears them well. Now for prefall they’ve release these rose gold ones and I’m a little bit obsessed. It’s a […]

In Good Form

Do you ever have that one thing that you swear you’ll never wear and then one day you realize you’re kind of into it? That’s how I feel about flatforms right now. Part of me just doesn’t want to buy into this trend (I partook in the 90’s), but then another part of me loves […]

It acts as an easy throw-on piece that is the perfect blank canvas for adding a necklace, scarf, or attention grabbing shoes. This sweatshirt dress by A.P.C. fits that description to a tee. First of all, it […]

Spring In Your Step

Is there such thing as a pastry diet? Because if there isn’t, it should be a thing. It wouldn’t say it’s a good fitness strategy, but it will definitely make a person happy. Even though sneakers will always be the most comfortable, practical, and now the most wanted footwear of choice for the urban dweller, lately I’m partial […]
