Last week I rounded up the best of White Mules to wear this season. After all of my research, I finally gave in and bought the Maryam Nassir Zadeh White Mules. I wore them last weekend with the DE SMET Button Up Convertible Dress in Starch. They worked well for a cocktail party but I am equally excited to wear them with my favorite uniform: jeans and a t-shirt. With such a neutral wardrobe, white mules brighten up any look.

The New Season Of Jeans

The shapes and shades of denim for Fall feel fresh. From washed and marled black denim to balloon shapes and onseam pockets, they are feeling more and more like proper trousers, fit for any occasion. Two favorites at the moment include the Balloon Jean from Goldsign and the Steer Pant from Rachel Comey. Both made in the United States, it’s hard to find anything wrong with these jeans. The most difficult part is choosing between them.

This month’s design was inspired by simple geometric shapes to create a versatile silhouette. Seamlessly uniting form with function, the DE SMET Transformative Tie Dress is a new take on the wrap dress. Made in soft tencel twill, detailed with overlapped side panels for easy wrapping at front or back. Reversible front to back styling for a high or low neckline. Available in both Poppyseed (pictured above) and Bosc (pictured below). Layer over jeans and a tee, or wear on its own as a dress, this is the ultimate layering piece to take you through the seasons.

Best of Basics: Spring Slides

best-of-basics-spring-slides-gran-by-jon-josef-womens-fashion-desmitten

I can’t help but get excited about Spring, I mean, it’s 60 degrees in New York today. So bear with me as I discuss my go-to shoe of the season, Spring slides. I’ve been a huge fan of this shoe silhouette for years (evident herehere and here) and if you haven’t slid into these shoes, then you are truly missing out. It is one of the easiest shoes to wear, it’s in the title of the shoe itself, just slide it on and go. It also adds a laid back yet, sophisticated vibe to any look. Whether you pair it with a slim midi-skirt or cropped pant, you can’t go wrong. This season, my best friend gave me these Jon Josef slides as a birthday gift. The embossed snake-skin pattern adds a textural/print element to my otherwise solid wardrobe. Slide into Jon Josef’s at Capricious in Grosse Pointe, Michigan or visit the Jon Josef website. They are also available in black velvet and tan suede.
