RoC Retinol Correxional

RoC Retinol Correxional

I ate my way through Europe (France, Austria and Italy!) for three weeks and as fun as it’s been to wake in a new city every few days, it has wreaked havoc on my skin (admittedly, the daily glass or two or three of rosé did not help!). Luckily, my first stop was in France we all know the French are as serious about skincare as they are about wine– which is why for me, browsing French pharmacies for new beauty products is as fun as drinking champagne. One of my all time favorite French pharmacy discoveries is RoC skincare.

Nina Ricci Irrisor Bag: The Shape of Things to Come

I never thought that a flat bag would appeal to me. After all, structure and interesting details are both literally and figuratively what give an accessory depth. But after lugging one heavy tote after another, I found myself seeking a sleek bag that packs well, is easy to store, and won’t cause my shoulders to slump in discomfort. Conveniently enough, Guillaume Henry had exactly the same idea in mind. His latest design, the Irrisor, is about as simple and clean as a bag can get.

Star Power: Small But Mighty Bags

Here’s a simple ode to the power of the bag. I’ve said a bag can make or break an outfit more times than I can count, and it seems a few celebrities of the moment tend to agree. Whether in clutch or crossbody form, these bags are petite yet potent, and their ability to elevate an otherwise ordinary outfit is proven, from slashed jeans to a sharp red suit.

Trendy Classics: How to Best Invest

The term “trendy classic” may seem like an oxymoron, but investment pieces worthy of this designation truly do exist – and one of its main purveyors is Bottega Veneta. The Intrecciato weave is a timeless signature for the Italian house, and in miniaturized, bright blue crossbody form, it also somehow manages to be completely of the times. To really play up the trendiness, style it with a contrasting shoe like Saint Laurent’s violet Candy platform.
