Trends, Tips, and Snippets

This Blog was created due to my obsession with list making and keeping all of the things I wanted to buy organized. Eventually there were just too many lists, so I decided to start this, a blog where I could keep all of my thoughts, ideas, and prospective shopping all in one place.

Spotlight on Michael Kors

Michael Kors is a brand both expensive and affordable. By this statement I mean looks expensive- is affordable. I've fallen in love with the flat 'Persia' sandals in ivory leather with gold hardware. They look incredible on and are oh so comfortable. Surprisingly they go with so much and can dress up even the most basic jeans & tee outfit. The next Michael Kors accessory I'm absolutely infatuated with is the 38mm 5 link bracelet watch. It's bold, classic and looks so sophisticated on. It also looks like you stole your boyfriend's watch which is a look I adore.

Summertime, Summertime

Summer is calling and I have some new obsessions that scream warm weather. First off after beginning to follow Rebecca Minkoff on instagram and seeing her bags on Shopbop, I decided to finally buy one. I love that her handbags are made in NYC and that she uses these girly pastel colors on tough edgy designs. The mini-mac (M.A.C standing for "morning after clutch") is not only a carefree summer staple but an all-year-round staple. I struggled (of course) with which color to buy since the bag is offered in so many fun choices. Ultimately, I decided on mint with soft grey at a close second. I might actually buy the gray sometime soon, but I just had to go with mint since I think tough leather in a fun and flirty color is what RM is all about.

Next on my list are the Joie 'Nice' sandals in snakeskin/black and white. These sandals are impeccably made in Italy and are so basic it makes me question why they haven't been designed before. They come in a variety of different colors but the snakeskin was calling my name. Don't make the same mistake I made, however. These sandal run a WHOLE size small and I only ordered a half size up. Unfortunately, once they arrived from Shopbop and I realized my mistake, the half size up was sold out... everywhere. Even websites like Zappos that had them before the weekend didn't have them anymore. That only shows what  great pair of sandals they are.

Finally an evil eye bracelet speckled with diamonds screams summer by the water (especially the Mediterranean). The cool ocean blues against a tan wrist is elegant yet playful. I recently discovered some great bracelets on (surprisingly) the overstock website; and I'm not talking about the cheap evil eyes you find at a stand in the mall. These bracelets are beautiful (and expensive!) But remember this is a piece of jewelry to invest in and also wear everyday. $599.99 $1579.99
