KARA X DESMITTEN

In honor of the Fall/Winter 2014 KARA accessories collection, I’m excited to join the New York City designer, Sarah Law, as a Guest Pinner for an exclusive project entitled KARA X DESMITTEN. Over the next week I will curate images that embody the new collection, inspired by the basic need for comfort, solidity and permanence. The Fall/Winter 2014 collection of minimalist handbags stay true to the young brand’s aesthetic while pushing it into the future through the use of luxurious materials including bold suedes and alpine shearling. Browse through the KARA X DESMITTEN pinboard to re-pin, like and comment on your favorites while shopping the new collection of accessories.

Monochrome Dressing in Camel

monochrome-dressing-in-camel-valentino-acne-studios-the-row-hermes-2014-desmitten A few weeks ago I shared my must-have camel blazer picks with you, today I ask the question, would you wear this color head to toe? The Row and Acne offer oversized cozy looks for Fall, while Valentino and Christophe Lemaire for Hermès focus on a more streamlined look. Camel is one of those classic colors that never goes out of style, so why not try it in a monochrome look? I pulled some of my favorite camel pieces for Fall from chunky knits to streamlined blazers. To mix it up, I would mix hues and textures in one look.

Beauty Supply: Organic Face Wash

 Since I’ve made the switch to organic and non-toxic beauty products, I’ve tried my fair share of organic face wash options. Once I tried Tracie Martyn’s Amla purifying cleanser, I knew I found my perfect match. Her organic face wash removes all makeup and residue without over-drying my skin and it leaves my face feeling fresh.

Postcard From The West Coast

We’ve been on the West Coast for a few days and yesterday we stopped at Cannon Beach in Oregon. It felt like we were in another world, the low misty clouds hung low enough to walk through. The water was ice-cold, but the sand was smooth and the sites were breathtaking. A truly inspirational place that will stay with me for years to come. Oh and my beach attire did consist of a leather jacket. Be sure to follow me on instagram to keep up with my West Coast adventures.

Must Have: Pointed Loafers

We all fell in love with the Céline pointed loafers as soon as they popped up in the Pre-Fall 2014 look book, but now they are a must have item. The pointed toe elongates your leg and adds a sense of sophistication to any look. They also make the perfect transition shoe, from summer to fall. Whether you want to splurge for the Céline style, or save some money and go for a high-street style, I rounded up my favorites at every price point. Which would you go for?
