The Row Sample Sale 2017

the-row-sample-sale-2017-desmitten
It’s an annual event that is not to be missed. The Row Sample Sale started this morning at 9am. Grab your closest friends and make a day of it. I’ve missed this sale the past two years (because we were getting married/scouting locations for the wedding). So this year I was not going to miss it. I stopped by The Row sample sale for a sneak peek and here’s what you can expect: 70% off ready-to-wear and handbags. The handbag selection was vast and inviting. Crossbody bags, top handle totes and specialty clutches in multiple colors. Shoes are 60% off and there was an array of styles from velvet Mary Jane flats to suede slides and black heeled boots, prices ranged from $300-$700. If you are in the market for a winter coat, don’t get your hopes up, there were only a few styles spotted including an oversized grey blanket coat and a few short hooded robe coats. Seasonal offerings included tables full of cashmere sweaters priced between $300-$400.

Close Contact

close-contact-norm-architects-the-kinfolk-gallery-Sørensen-Leather-exhibit-2-desmitten

It’s no surprise that we are in love with The Kinfolk Gallery space designed by Norm Architects, but their current exhibit entitled Close Contact elevates the space to another level. They teamed up with Sørensen Leather to explore the idea of the sphere versus our human body. It reminds me of art school, when learning to draw the human figure and breaking down the body into simple geometric shapes. The exhibit is composed of large-scale photographs, leather-covered spheres that mimics the surface of the skin. If you are in Copenhagen, it is worth a visit. I’m sure the pure scale of the artwork alone is moving.

Speaking Trench

Do you speak trench? When the weather is in flux, your overcoat options are endless. The most classic choice for navigating the seasonal transition is the trench coat. This month, as I scroll through my instagram feed, I can’t get away from the trench coat. From Low Classic and Agger Flachs to Burberry, everyone can find one that works into their style. Classic, quirky, asymmetric, what’s your trench style?

A Mindful Edit | Plant Based Recipes

a-mindful-edit-plant-based-recipes-food-styling-blueeyedfringe-3-desmitten

Since becoming vegan three years ago, the hunt for vegan recipes is a daily occurrence in our house. It is very rare that we come across a site that offers plant based recipes and photography that we can appreciate aesthetically. Because of this, imagine my delight when Sophie from @blueeyedfringe started a new instagram account, @amindfuledit featuring plant based recipes with unmistakably gorgeous food photography.

Best of Basics | MNZ White Mules

best-of-basics-maryam-nassir-zadeh-white-mules-mnz-womens-shoes-2-desmitten

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.
