Trust the Italians to bring a sense of magic to the runway. While the level of craftsmanship is always elevated, it’s their flair for the nonchalantly fantastical that makes the Milan runways a standout.
Now for a certain breed of spring bags, under the sea is where it’s at. Here, my pick of the best earthly beauties a mermaid would give up her flippers for, running the gamut from deep-diving shimmery texture to leathers the color of Caribbean water.
We may want every new bag that hits the market, but the fact of the matter is that we couldn’t (or at least shouldn’t) actually buy every single one. It’s all about picking and choosing. While the occasional trendy piece is a justified indulgence, what you really want to invest in are the classics.
I love the sweet whisper of color blush-pink provides. Delicate yet powerful in its way and simple yet utterly sophisticated, the palest shade of pink – or the richest shade of nude, depending how you look at it – is as feminine as a color can get (without veering into Barbie territory).
In the age of mass-produced goods, it takes a bit effort to be unique. Not only is cultivating your own personal style paramount to standing out, the most literal way to do it is one of the best!
If there is one thing you simply must have for the holiday season, it’s sparkly, glittery shoes to show off your festive spirit. It’s amazing what a gorgeous pair of heels can do for your psyche during the season of extreme ups and downs (your weight included!), so when it comes to investing, a fresh favorite pair of shoes is your best bet.
