While we adored Miguel Vallinas‘ photographic series of people with animal heads, there is something I love so much about his latest series Roots. In place of human heads, the Madrid-based photographer has paired fashionably clothed bodies with botanical bouquets – each representing the stem and flora, making up the roots of identity.
Flat, pointy toed slippers have been trending in recent collections, from resort to pre-fall, prompting Vogue to proclaim them the “it” shoe of 2016. Céline’s version of the traditional Moroccan slipper sports an exaggerated toe with a single, buckled strap across the middle of the foot. Narciso Rodriguez gave the shoe a slight platform, whereas Philip Lim elevated his with a slight heel. But much as we dig these modern interpretations, our hearts still remain loyal to the classic babouche. They’re super comfortable and are guaranteed to cost less. So until the “it” shoe hits stores in just a few months, you’ll find us rocking the Casbah with the classics.
Georgian designer Tamara Khoshtaria‘s jewelry collection is perfect for winter wear. The substantial modern shapes stand up beautifully against woolly sweaters and cozy outerwear. I’m obsessed with the layered look of the coiled, two-tone bracelets and the ball necklace that hangs on one side of the neck. Bold. Beautiful.
It’s been nearly a year since I adopted my first large indoor plant and I’m happy to report that this black thumb of mine has managed to keep the fiddleleaf fig tree alive and thriving. This newfound confidence has me on the hunt for my next green friend and I’m crushing hard on the idea of an indoor olive tree. I love their neutral, pale green color and versatile size. Plus, they are slow growing and flourish with just a bit of water and lots of sunlight. My kinda plant!
