What Why Where: Missing London

It’s been almost two months since I got back from London and all I have to show for it is a fake British accent and some awesome clothes…so because I can’t have the Tube, Dover Street Market and Kate Middleton in my backyard, I opted for this.

Throwback Thursday: Isabel Marant

With Isabel Marant x H&M launching today (and we all know how I feel about designer collaborations) I thought we should look at the real reason why everyone loves the French designer. Because after all, Isabel Marant was happening way before the Dicker boot and sneaker wedges. For reals.

Why You Should Be Happy It’s Fall

I originally wanted to call this post “The best part about it being 40 degrees in October” but that seemed a little lengthy (and to you lucky ones out there, it’s not 40 degrees in all parts of the world). But for my fellow Chicagoans, although this weather is a bit surprising (even for us), it’s a little depressing to know that Winter snow, below freezing temperatures and the oh-so-popular puffer coats will all be gracing us with their presence very soon. Because I’m all about spinning a negative into a positive (unless you happen to get caught in the rain in your new suede and calf hair boots…there’s no positive to that), today we’re going to talk about the 5 best things about it being 40 degrees in October (and if you wake up early enough, 35 degrees).

Hairy Styles

When it comes to the hairy styles of calf/pony hair, it’s something I was not always a big fan of. It was either leather or fur for me, and nothing in between. But then these Phillip Lim loafers came into my life while in London, and next thing I know there’s another pair of pony hair shoes on my feet and I’m writing a blog post about this furry material that I used to ignore.

So today I’d like you to join me in a conversation not about One Direction but about some other hairy styles…

Throwback Thursday: Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton

It was a good run, guys. In case you haven’t heard, Marc Jacobs just left Louis Vuitton after being their Creative Director for 16 years. His recent collection that showed just yesterday at Paris Fashion Week was his last. From pajama dressing to fur in some interesting places, and everything in between, we’re throwing back this Thursday to look at Marc’s evolution at Louis Vuitton.
