Sheer & Velvet


Layering Day

A few things: I'm into this whole layering the tank on top of another top tee thing, velvet is underrated and...we need to chat about all things Red Valentino and their new Fall/Winter 2016/2017 collection (AKA this bag and everything else that is on my radar/should be on yours). Also, there's no such thing as walking into Urban Outfitters and walking out empty

Statement pieces


And color.

When a killer statement pieces glides along my radar, I have a difficult time refusing it. Be it shiny chokers, epic purses or shoes--the works, I'm always into scooping them up for my wardrobe. I like the idea of being able to keep everything simple and neutral and then have one piece take the spotlight and sum up the day's worth. That's where Lowellita comes

Stripes, Fur, Denim



I opted for a solid uniform today. I'm always immediately drawn to all things fur (or fur-like!), so this American Retro coat seemed like a natural necessity.

Last Minute Gifting

Whether you're doing Friendsgiving, or heading somewhere to celebrate Thanksgiving with family or friends, there are a few last minute options for those that still need some inspiration. Note for the extra rushed: a bottle of wine never fails, and neither do a beautiful bouquet of flowers. But for the rest,

Au Naturel


The Beauty Scoop

Everyone knows how essential a woman's beauty routine is. Along with our morning coffee, hot tea, or {insert ritual here}, the creams, serums, moisturizers and beyond that we use are a daily necessity and essential to our existence. And with that in mind, while so many of my make up staples remain the same year after year, sometimes I stumble upon a new brand or piece that I quickly add to my daily practice and wonder how I ever lived
