Star Studded

My subtle rebellious streak has reached new heights - I am wearing my favorite arrow earring every weekend. My latest wishlist item is this sparkly, star-studded earring. What can be better than a mini constellation dangling just below your ears!

Today’s Obsession: Crystal Embellished Cutout Sweatshirt

I have never seen a sweatshirt as ornate and as desirable as this one off the Christopher Kane runway - you can literally go out in sweatshirt, jeans and pumps and still stop traffic. Love this piece.

The Great Gatsby Pants

I love the prints by Clover Canyon, and find their Gatsby collection fleece-lined track pants to be one of the best in-between weather staples. The exotic print is surprisingly versatile - I’ve paired them with short puffy coat for running errands, and maroon tuxedo jacket for a casual work day. The soft pant silhouette is ubiquitous right now and I am sure I can wear them well into spring.

They are on sale here and snatch them before the last pieces are gone!

Mules in Nude

I am contemplating getting an easy alternative to the nude pump - a pair of sleek mules in nude. I know… mules are usually not “sleek”, but I’ve found two versions that might work very well with my uniform of skinny jeans and dressy jackets. 

Gianvito Rossi Nude Mule Pump - the pointy toe and thin heel definitely transforms this mule into a league of its own

Steve by Steve Madden Mercie Suede Mules in Taupe - wedge heel brings extra comfort - I can totally see this being pairs with casual cropped pants and nautical stripes

Today’s Obsession: Double Pearl Earrings

I guess I am a little bit late to the game, but I am so obsessed with the Dior “Mise en Dior” tribal pearl earrings. Even though it is inspired by tribal accessories, it doesn’t look tribal to me at all! So many elegant pieces came out of Dior after Raf Simons took the helm.

The Elegant Viola

The Ferragamo Viola tote has an ingenious hardware closure design that symbolizes the house and the versatility of being both a practical work bag and a clutch. In general, I do not use “wide open” totes with no closures nor gimmicky folding bags, but for the first time, I am sold on this “fold-over tote”

Designer Watch: Natalia Grzybowski

I stumbled upon a few amazing dresses and suits by UK-based designer Natalia Grzybowski and have to share with you. The mixed materials of neoprene/crepe and chiffon create wonderfully structured yet ethereal designs. Each silhouette comes with a plain and a print version - but I wouldn’t know how to choose between the two…

See my favorites below:

Body Language

I love the form of a human body, and incorporating this element into jewelry and home decor seems natural to me.  This kind of “body language” in styling should be wonderfully enriching to any space. To start with something avant-garde, I love the HIS and HER chairs by Fabio Novembre. They are likely molded to the shape of Adam and Eve…

image

There are, of course, smaller objects of wonder, like this pair of brass legs sculpture by Kelly Wearstler - you can play with them in different positions too.

image

image

This leggy letter opener is also a great conversation piece for any coffee or reading table.

image

image

For everyday jewelry, I highly recommend the Embrace cuff by Winden Jewelry.  I always love supporting emerging designers, and this is not a piece that you will see everywhere on the street and will always feel unique and fresh.

image

I am also considering getting their lips earrings with diamond. These are relatively affordable given the solid gold and real stone (starting at $170).
