Avène XeraCalm A.D Lipid-Replenishing Cleansing Oil: Remain Calm

You know I love my oils. I clean and treat my face with them, and use them to moisturize my body; so you won’t be surprised that I’m in love with Avène’s Lipid-Replenishing Cleansing Oil. For one thing, oil is the best way to clean naturally, but the important thing here is the hydration and moisture retention.

Top 5 Squared-Off Bags: Boxed In

If you feel like you’re being boxed in, you may be right. The current feel of bags is definitely going the way of a perfectly cubed shape. A boxy design, especially in the form of a shoulder bag, is great because it’s not an actual hard box, so it’s way more versatile for everyday.

Clunky ’90s Mary Janes Make a Comeback: Back to Schoolgirl

Though it’s been the ‘70s show in fashion lately, definite shades of ‘90s cool have infiltrated – and no trend from that decade appeals to my sartorial sensibilities more than the chunky Mary Jane. Courtney Love’s baby doll look may not be hot right now, but these shoes most certainly are. Today’s version is sleeker than its predecessor, suggesting a higher sense of sophistication (grunge, these are not).

Valentino Small Shoulder Bag: Wild About You

While I may not be adventurous enough for a crazy, fun hairstyle these days (the ’80s were a whole different story!), I can definitely project that side of myself with the right bag. Like this twist on the fur-covered front flap by Valentino.

Klorane Shampoo & Conditioning Balm: Natural Born Cleaners

If you have great hair, all you need is a pair of sunglasses and your favorite bag to feel put-together when you step out the door. Proper brushing plays a part in this, but products do too and it’s always best to go the natural route here.

Furla Perla Mini Crossbody Tote: Perla of Wisdom

This adorable little bag has such a great shape. It’s taken some inspiration from a classic north-south tote and restyled it to irresistibly detailed effects. Tapering towards the top, it’s got the same of appeal as a bucket yet it’s totally different.
