Designer Beth Bugdaycay is a big believer in karma. Inspired by storied objects and karmic symbols, the former Rebecca Taylor CEO and co-founder has created a line of stunning 18k jewelry to compliment her free-spirited ready to wear collection for her own label FoundRae. The cigar band and signet rings are my favorite – each inscribed, using an age old enameling technique, with words like strength and dream and adorned with symbols representing karma and protection. I mean, who doesn’t need need a little token of positive vibes?!
Lace up fronts are still going strong with silhouettes transitioning to knitwear for winter wear. Whether they’re tied up tight or worn open and loose, I’m loving the look. I’m also kicking myself for not snatching up Isabel Marant‘s chunky, lace up wool sweater but thankfully there are other sumptuously cozy versions out there for grabs this season!
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.
