Here’s the skinny on skinny neck scarves: we dig them. Tie it tight to the side, knot it in a bow, wrap it loose to the front or just let it flow long . . . either way, we love how this simple accessory can update any outfit, summer, fall or spring.
We’ve survived the 4th trimester of baby numero dos and the travel bug is officially back. I’m a big believer in traveling with children and I’m just itching to squeeze in some adventures before the end of the year – and if not, then next. Here are some new places that have been added to my travel bucket list. I’d love to hear what’s on yours and where you’re headed to next?
Maybe it’s because it’s summer and I’m looking for effortless ease when it comes to dressing. Maybe it’s because I’m all about those retro, bohemian California vibes. One thing’s for certain, I’ve been enamored with Dôen ever since I first discovered the young label earlier this year. Their latest collection of sheer poet blouses, block printed cotton dresses, vintage-inspired raw silk shirts, and the perfect pair of high waisted cropped denim is all I want to wear everyday, all season long.
New York label THEY has just debuted their new collection of minimalist sneakers that celebrate the beauty of simplicity. Geometric shapes, inspired by German Bauhaus geometry, are seamlessly embedded within each shoe by their team of expert craftsmen. And a masterful and precise method, passed down from Japanese shoemaking, is used to hand align the shoe’s upper half with its custom made bi-color rubber sole in order to continue the fluidity in its design. A girl can never have enough sneakers, so yes, the blush two toned kicks are at the top of my fall wish list!
It seems only fitting that Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli’s last collaboration together at Valentino would end with a theatrical, Elizabethan-inspired couture collection that the world’s greatest dramatist Shakespeare would have surely approved of. The clothes were extraordinary, as usual. But oh, the hair! The hair, which was wrapped in tiny gold coils framing the face, was ethereal, graceful and modern. And easy to replicate, I assume, with some thin gold wire and metallic elastic. Give me some time to experiment and I shall report back . . .
