saturday night love… the statement clutch

I am dying to freshen up my handbag assortment at the moment… taking inspiration from some of these amazing clutches that totally transform an outfit. I am also warming up to the idea of using a bright over-sized purse during the day (instead of lugging a huge bag around)! Thoughts?

love of the day – embellished sneakers

I love sneakers and I think they have been an awesome trend… my feet are grateful to have had a breather from heels for the season. For Spring, wedge sneakers are stepping aside in favor of studded, embellished sneakers. Here are a few of my favorites:

YSL Malibu Sneakers, 550

love of the day – the maxi dress + leather combo

My love of leather jackets is well documented (check here), and I am really into the combination of a cropped leather over a long, glam maxi skirt or dress. It’s a great contrast. I also love that it hints at it being Spring at some point in the near future (hurry up already!)

interior design – the indoor hammock

Imagine curling up in one of these cozy hammocks  for a Sunday nap until it is warm enough to bring the party outside… I am currently obsessed!

love of the day – black out walls

Loving how cozy dark walls can feel, especially when warmed up with gold accents, animal prints, and fur throws.

love of the day: the fur

Nothing screams luxury (and warmth) quite like a beautiful fur. I think that everyone needs at least one gorgeous fur in their closet. I look forward to going back to the East Coast especially so I can wear my furs (as they tend to be way too heavy and garner lots of odd looks here in LA).

Ready to make a purchase? There are two cruelty-free options: vintage for faux.

When purchasing a vintage fur, it’s worth the money to buy it from a reputable vintage shop, who has (hopefully) sifted out any furs that are not in good condition. You should still be looking for fit (I find that often they are way too big and bulky through the shoulders), signs of rot or decay (it should feel supple when you bend the material, not brittle), and you should make sure it is free of tears, rips and shedding.

Faux furs are amazing, and you are able to find a great quality much more easily than an actual vintage fur. My recommendation here is to stick with a neutral color, as the brighter costumes look more fake and can even go towards costumey. Current favorites for faux are BSABLE (sold at Dash, Revolve Clothing, and Elyse Walker), and Rachel Zoe (Neiman Marcus, Piperlime, and Nordstrom).
