With their vibrant colors, wildly shaped appliqués and metal-buckle closures that resembles the Greek letter pi, it’s impossible not to be distinguish and love Brazil-born designer Paula Cademartori‘s artisan bags. Even if you can touch them, you can almost feel the beautiful artisanship of these beautifully flamboyant Italian made bags – they’re like little works of art! And with the recent announcement of a capsule shoe collection, we’ve got our eyes and pocketbooks peeled for our next shoe splurge.
When I first discovered I was pregnant with Quincy, one of the million thoughts wandering through my mind was how our once ambitious travel plans would be put on hiatus – at least for a few years, right? But I like to think that after 9 months of journeying to the most far away places, my travel bug rubbed off on our little munchkin. He’s been such an adaptable, patient and enjoyable traveling companion, on short and long trips alike – Abe and I just feel so grateful to be able to share in these memorable experiences with him. So when Bugaboo recently offered to send our family packing for The City of Roses, along with their new Bugaboo Bee³ stroller, we jumped at the opportunity. We had 48 hours to conquer the city. With a list of to-dos in hand, an eager toddler’s super chic and lightweight city stroller in tow, and a weekend of rare sunshine to greet us, we ate, we walked, we shopped, and we explored.
Denim loyalty is a real thing. When you find a denim label you love and loves you back in the form of a perfect fit, why look elsewhere? So I suppose I can blame my faithfulness for why Closed denim has been sneaking under my radar since 1978. The German brand has been taking its design cues from military uniforms for decades and crafting their tailored jeans in Italy. After falling in love with the silhouettes and washes, I had to try on a pair. And that just marked the beginning of my love affair with Closed . . .
We’ve got a tassel obsession. Put them on anything and well, we’re sold. Isabel Marant, Jimmy Choo and MSGM are just a few of the designers that have been enticing us with their tassel embellished sandals season after season. But it wasn’t until we saw Ulla Johnson’s Luz heels, with colorful tassels hanging from ankle straps, that wooed us and eventually inspired us to make our collection of ombré tassels. Slide them on and off different strappy heels to make them the ultimate, interchangeable accessory!
