Sarah Flint’s Milanese Sandals


Sarah Flint  Madeline Saddle Vencchetta Sandal

Sarah Flint  Grear Saddle Vencchetta Sandal

Their simplicity and attention to details (delicate embellishments and intricate leatherwork) is what made me stand up and take notice when I first spied these Sarah Flint sandals. Both the Grear and Madeline are classic silhouettes that you will be able to wear for years to come. And, after studying under Richard Siccardi, an artisan known for working with luxury footwear’s most accomplished names (Christian Louboutin and Manolo Blahnik) at Ars Sutoria, Sarah learned a thing or two about quality, making her shoes endure just as long.

Flint’s lifelong dream of creating shoes became reality with the launch of her collection in the Fall of 2013. After realizing they had the exact same thoughts on what constitutes a luxurious, beautifully designed shoe, Siccardi joined Sarah Flint as head of manufacturing.

For inspiration Sarah turns to her travels, art, and the vibrancy of the NYC city she calls home. Flint also has a yen for the elegant world of celebrities of the 1940’s and ’50’s, seeking inspiration from the glamorous lives those stars inhabited.

Vanessa Bruno Busko Military Jacket $880.00 on sale for $528.00ASOS Urbancode Leather Black Flapover Shoulder Bag $385.00 on sale for $185.00

With online dating so popular ( one out of three married couples in the US met online) it’s not uncommon to have your first few dates during the day. Top Shop’s crepe culottes and shell top yield a fantastic lunch or museum outing look. The silhouette is simple and classic, yet the culottes lend a modern vibe. With the military trend so strong this winter, the ideal jacket is Vanessa Bruno’s Busko two-toned olive one (and, it’s on sale).

For day this look screams oxfords. I’m in love with Maiyet’s metallic-trim oxfords, and as luck has it, they too are on sale at Barney’s! Last but not least, Urbancode’s flapover shoulder bag completes your look, and you guessed it — it too is on sale.

If you live in a colder environment than us lucky Californians, you can layer a black t-shirt and wear hose for warmth!

Happy Dating!!!

What better acronym for a date than K.I.S.S.–Keep It Simple Silly!

Sometimes the unexpected flash of skin, like in Barney’s black drape back sweater, can not only be simple but sexy.

A cross-body leopard print adds a bit of pop to this head to toe black ensemble. A dash of edge can be had with Katie Diamond’s–what an amazing name for a jewelry designer– cone shaped lapis half-hoop earrings (also from Barney’s Warehouse).

It’s the perfect casual date night attire that is neither boring nor overdone and the best part…this entire look rings in at $311.00. Not bad for 5 items that will add fantastic basics to your wardrobe.

It’s National PJ Day


Black Friday

Nordstroms

Today is Black Friday, supposedly the busiest day in retail. A day where the deals are non stop. I don’t know about you but I’m still full from eating way too much turkey with all the fixins, and I can’t imagine facing down the throngs of shoppers that will be out and about.
The great thing is we don’t have to. You can shop in your pj’s from the comfort of your couch with all the online sales going on (we don’t even have to wait to cyber Monday).

Burning Man Starts Now – Take Two


Konstantina Konstantinidi Nikolas Necklace $162.00Silvia Rossi Peacock Feather Necklace $671.00

Rebecca Minkoff Fringe Tassel Necklace $148.00Daniela Bustos Maya grey Plumas Necklace $165.00

Zoe Tassel Knecklace $69.00Boticca Dusty Pink Feather Necklace $80.00

 

Club Monaco Rosario Necklace $495.00Isabel Marant Gold Tone Crystal and Feather Necklace

Burning Man is back on. That is, the rain has stopped, the dirt/sand has dried up, and they are letting people into the grounds again. The festival had to close on opening day due to severe rain and thunderstorms, turning away thousands of RV’s and cars. Mother Nature is back on board and the music and festivities shall continue.

Yet, you don’t have to weather the crowds and all out craziness that ensues when thousands of people get together to experience a taste of the Burning Man vibe. This fall’s feather and tassel trend can let you participate (albeit, in a small way) without facing the all out madness of a festival.

Make a statement in Konstantina Konstantinidi’s vibrant blue and green feather Nikolas necklace, or try Isabel Marant’s somewhat subdued version in gold tone crystals and feathers. For a peacock look with no feathers, Silvia Rossi’s stunning necklace is made from rhodium plated brass, acrylic and plexiglas. Love it!!

While my preferred tassel versions were simpler and sleeker –  love both Rebecca Minkoff’s fringe tassel necklace, and Club Monaco’s leather and beaded one; Daniela Bustos’ maya grey Plumas version proves they can make a statement as well.
