This week I’m excited to be guest blogging for Arhaus. Every day this week I will highlight a new fashion trend that can easily translate to your home with products from Arhaus, so visit their blog to see what the trend is today. I’m also a guest Pinner for Arhaus this month, so be sure to follow the < ARHAUS X DESMITTEN > board for daily inspiration where fashion and interiors collide. Here is a little sneak peek of what you can expect…


Shop the Jumelle Sample Sale This Week

One of my favorite Brooklyn boutiques, Jumelle kicks off their bi-annual sample sale on Thursday at their Williamsburg location. If you are still scrambling to find something to wear for New York Fashion Week, you’re sure to find street style worthy pieces at this sale. You can expect great deals on one of a kind pieces from local designers including A Détacher, Apiece Apart and Nomia. Sale items also include international favorites Christophe Lemaire and Dieppa Restrepo. Remember how good this sale was last season? Here are all the details to get you there this week…

Beauty Supply: Black and White Nirvana


 Black and White Nirvana by Elizabeth and James are the newest additions to my scent collection. Gifted to me for my 30th birthday this week, I couldn’t imagine having one without the other. Nirvana Black is a moody scent that I find fitting to wear in winter. The androgynous notes of sandlewood mixed with vanilla create a sultry scent. It acts as a more feminine version of the Comme des Garcons Wonderwood perfume I wore a few years ago. Nirvana White has a lighter floral scent that I imagine myself wearing all summer long.


February List 2015

A short month, with a long list of things to enjoy. From the kick off of Fashion Week, to a certain love filled holiday there are a lot of things on my mind this month…


 To Do // If you find yourself standing in the shampoo aisle of Duane Reade thinking “I should by non-toxic shampoo, but I’m already here and I don’t want to go home and order something online. I need shampoo now.” Don’t fret. This month I’ll share some clean personal products available at your local drugstore along with tips on how to quickly research the products while you are standing at the store.

To Follow // It’s no surprise that fashion month starts next week and it kicks off right here in NYC.  I’m not sure how many shows I will make it to this season, but I can tell you one thing, my runway board on Pinterest will be updated daily with my favorite looks from the shows. For instant coverage, follow me on Instagram.

To Shop // I’m not a huge fan of the forced Hallmark holiday celebrating St. Valentine, but I do love any excuse to buy new lingerie. Currently crushing on the sexy lacy lingerie from Carine Gilson.

To Wear //  It’s still winter here in New York and while staying warm is essential, it’s not always the most fashionable. Thankfully the high-neck trend is taking over tops and it is anything but boring. Who ever knew a high-neck top could have such sex appeal? Proven by Jennifer Lawrence in the image above.

To See // There is nothing I love more than when fashion designers explore other creative outlets. This month, Helmut Lang’s Sculptures are on exhibit at the Sperone Westwater gallery through February 21st.


Project de. I IX


For Project de. 2015, I’m focusing on creating 12 cohesive pieces that make up a capsule collection. For the first piece, I chose to create a casual tunic silhouette in a structured lux fabric of silk zibeline. The color, entitled “moonbeam,” dances between utilitarian khaki and silver. Simple but significant details include slit sleeves, an exaggerated shirt tail hem and pleats at center front and back.
