Patent Platform

I wanted to spotlight one shoe I’m loving for spring, Nine West’s ‘Carnation’ platform sandal. They’re high—5 inches to be exact—but the chunky heel makes them feel sturdy and surprisingly comfortable (you won’t have to worry about sinking into grass!). These patent beauties are great for work, casual outdoor events and everything in between. They’d complement any look and the neutral color is elongating.

Nine West Mini Gael Bucket Bag Tan Spring 2016

This bucket bag by Nine West is on my wish list for spring. I can never pass up a great fringe design and love every detail of this one from the compact size to the rich color. It’s faux leather—hence the affordable $79 price tag!—but looks much more expensive.

It also comes in black for those who prefer the darker side of the spectrum. Click here to check it out!

Happy Monday!

V-Day Gifts for the Fashion Girl

Why does the world assume girls love pink? My closet is home to four pink items—I counted—and I can’t remember the last time I wore one of them. As a result, I’m rarely excited by Valentine’s Day gift guides.

For the ladies on the edgier side of the spectrum—or the significant others who want to know what to get them!—I’ve compiled affordable options you might actually want this year. It mixes items I’ve featured with new standouts I’ve been eager to share. Frosted lipgloss and floral perfume not included.

Beauty—Anastasia Beverly Hills’ contour kit makes sculpting your features Kardashian-style easy. Bite Beauty’s clear crayon turns any lipstick you own matte.

Fashion—H&M’s jacquard jacket is perfect for date night with all black everything and Nine West’s snake-embossed booties. Daniel Wellington’s classic watch is ideal for everyday. It comes in rose gold as well.

Home—Few things scream glam decor like a diptuqye, and their rose-scented candle smells delicious. Marie Farman’s 500 Hidden Secrets of Paris is the coffee table book topping my wish list.

Jewelry—Catbird’s alphabet rings are a forever favorite. Personal, stackable and so special. They come in sterling silver as a more cost-efficient option. Store them in BDB’s adorable eyelash jewelry dish set.

Tech—Frends’ limited-edition marble gold-flek headphones—a Nasty Gal exclusive!—are amazing in person. GiGi New York’s python-embossed phone case comes in seven colors, but I love the grey and gold.
