A Little Céline Pick Me Up


While trolling the internet, I can get caught in a daze, viewing thousands of images, until I’m numb. Everything begins to look the same and blend together. Today was one of those days, but this Céline campaign sparked some inspiration inside me. I’m putting down the laptop and working on creating with my hands… Have a relaxing (or productive) weekend!!

Editorial Eclipse: Autumnal Warmth


Maybe it’s the 70’s trend that won’t go away, or just the need to warm things up a bit, but I can’t get enough of the rusty neutrals that pair so well with black and white. This Céline clad editorial juxtaposes the rusty blush backgrounds with achromatic ensembles for a modern take on monochrome.

Must Have: Glove Shoe

It’s not the first time I’ve talked about the glove shoe… I mean, who wouldn’t want a shoe that fits like a glove? Made in buttery leather that forms to your foot, the glove shoe is the Fall replacement of the summer slide. Take your pick,  Martiniano // Rachel Comey// Maryam Nassir Zadeh // Celine. And beyond which designer- do you go with a flat or low heel, suede or leather? And even still, which color? Stark white or one of the brassy, buttery, vegetable colors that would add a welcomed, unexpected element to any achromatic look? I am drawn to the glove shoe because it makes me nostalgic for the hours of dance classes I took growing up. I remember how comfortable my jazz shoes were, but they were never to be worn outside on concrete, almost as if they were sacred. What is your favorite version of the glove shoe? Here are some of the many to choose from…


Martiniano // glove shoe // $395 flats // $540 for 1 3/4″ heel


Maryam Nassir Zadeh // Roberta // $379 // 1 1/2″ heel


Celine // soft ballerinas // $590 flats // $770 for 2 1/2″ heel


Summer in the City

I wore my favorite new dress from J.W. Anderson yesterday. It was a great departure from my usual achromatic look. See the full look on instagram.


Must Have: Block Heel Ankle Boots

No matter how many pairs of black boots come and go from our closets, there is always room for one more. With all the reference to retro booties this year, there is no excuse not to have block heel ankle boots among your collection. The heel is comfortable enough to wear everyday and there are plenty of options to fit your style. This on-trend, but still classic boot is sure to be one you wear day in and day out this winter. I’d add any of these styles to my closet, but I did receive these as an early Christmas gift…
