Summer Sale for Fall

 When I’m shopping summer’s sale season, top of mind is: “can I wear this into Fall?” Especially for a designer sale item (which is still an investment even with the discount!), I want to make sure it’s a classic and that I’ll be able to wear it even as the temperature starts dropping. I’ve scored some […]

A Very Neutral Summer, Indeed.

 Not that I need to state the obvious, but this is my dream palette (for my closet and home!). Such a peaceful, relaxing set of colors. The off-the-shoulder top is on sale, but it is Fendi…so here’s one by Sea for less. I’m also really loving this table lamp, but there’s a gold one that’s […]

The Hunt

 From my time in Rome a few years ago wearing one of my favorite consignment finds ever… I’ve always been told by friends and family that I’m “so good at finding deals,” but I shake my head at that (I don’t believe I’m any more skilled than my fellow shopper!). I’m just really fond of […]

from top to bottom: one two three four five I’ve been searching high and low for the perfect pair of sunglasses to take on my trip and these two-tone pairs have caught my eye. The perfect pair lasts me a long time: for over a year it’s been the olive pair by Celine (closest style […]

Last Minute

(click on any item above for details) Last minute gifts. So typical of me, so last minute. I think I did better last year, with a newborn(!). I believe it now when people say it actually gets more challenging as babies get more mobile. How is your holiday shopping going?


 Secretly (or not so secretly), I’m wishing for pumps in all colors… but mostly, burgundy. Like these. Or another similarly beautiful shade of red. See below for more of my picks – most are on sale!

Boot Season

Boots (here) It’s boot season – I can’t wait to bring out the over-the-knee pairs I scored during last year’s sales. But what’s really missing in my closet now is a good ankle bootie (higher up on the ankle!) and this is the pair that’s highest on my list.


After this week’s work trip on a tradeshow floor, I was reminded how important it was to be in shoes that were walkable (after 8 solid hours). I might not always be lusting after 3″ heels (4″ heels are so dreamy!), but the 3″ heels always become the sturdy, reliable standbys.  These (on sale!) are such a […]

Coffee Break Craving

Crossbody purse (here) On weekends, carrying a big tote bag for myself can feel bulky when we already have a diaper bag in tow.
