Dear Phillip, you had me at your first look this season: an embossed pink neoprene coat with a detachable leather bib. And then you continued to woo me with cross-body bags, motorcycle jackets, denim covered in custom patches, angora sweater dresses, and over-the-knee sandal boots. This cool-girl persona you’ve so masterfully created?! I want to be her.
Whether it be convex, federal, portholes, or eagle mirrors, circular mirrors are traditional, classic and chic accessories for the home. Did you know that some of the more traditional federal convex mirrors have thirteen balls surrounding them representing the original states of the union? There are some great options on Etsy, Ebay, and West Elm in case you’re in the market for one!
We can’t think of a more romantic do than a pretty crown of plaits, especially with Valentine’s Day just around the corner. For those of you that may be intimidated by this seemingly complex style, all it takes is sections of braids (the messier, the better) and a handful of bobby pins to help them stay in place. And for someone with shoulder length hair, I can even rock this look thanks to this tutorial from the ladies at The Beauty Department. Happy braiding!
As much as I love wearing bracelets, I tend to stray away from bangles – they’re a nuisance and make too much noise, mostly because they’re usually too big for my small wrists. Designed by Cynthia Sakai, Vita Fede‘s collection of modern and sophisticated hinged bracelets have convinced me otherwise. Not only are they available in different sizes, they are incredible comfortable and weighty . . . and have been a permanent staple in my jewelry rotation. Honestly, obsessed!

Though we’re only ankle deep in next season’s showings, it’s clear that the menswear trend has carried over to fall. Case in point: Thakoon Panichgul‘s latest collection for Thakoon Addition where striped shirting, slouchy trousers, and sharp suits were executed with such ease. I’m personally craving all the oversized knits, knitted outerwear, and patent leather loafers . . . suit me up!
