Putting a rebellious and outdoorsy twist on east coast prep, Bellerose is simply killing it with their spring lookbook. I love the layering of plaid, stripes, neutrals, and camo accessorized with socks under booties, braids in the hair and of course, colorful parrots propped on the shoulder. Polly want a cracker?
Vintage letterpress drawers, card catalogs, printer drawers and apothecary cabinets are all perfect places to store your tiny treasures. I’ve been keeping my eye out for a letterpress drawer for a long time before I starting looking online at Etsy and Ebay. And it turns out Craigslist came to my rescue with someone giving away seven letterpress drawers for free. Bingo. Persistence is key!
I recently visited Freda Salvador‘s new flagship store in San Francisco and picked out a pair of shoes for myself from their spring collection. You can imagine how difficult it was to narrow down my selections. Would it be a pair of toe ring sandals with a removable crystal strap? A pair of snake-printed booties? Or a pair of slip-on loafers with a detachable saddle? Alas, I decided on the most delicious and comfortable pair of black, patent leather D’Orsay loafers adorned with Swarovski crystals tied on with neon green accents – I honestly haven’t stopped wearing them since. Highly recommend . . .
