Friends, I don’t want to alarm you, but have you looked at Coach‘s website lately? I got a note from them asking if I’d take a peek at the new Coach shoes for fall, and can I just say: socks officially knocked off! I’ve been loving the brand evolution going on at Coach over the last few years – things are getting hipper, less predictable, and generally more interesting. But these shoes, friends? It’s on a whole new level. Read on
There’s a lot of good sale news happening today, friends, and I’d never be able to look you in the monitor if I didn’t share it right away. First, there’s a massive shoe clearance going on at Nordstrom this week. Sure, you’ll have to fight your way through a selection of summer sandals and such, but if you keep your eyes peeled, there are some gorgeous fall shoes you’ll be stoked to get your hands on (not to mention plenty of glitzy sandals that will be perfect when the holidays roll around). Also, a pretty amazing selection of classic black pumps, should you happen to be in need. I’ve taken the liberty of picking a few favorites:
If those picks aren’t enough for you, I’ve done a little creative search-narrowing. So, instead of wading through the 2,000+ choices, just click here, select your shoe size (to avoid almost certain heartbreak), and you’ll have your pick of the cream of the crop!
So, there’s that. But then, I got an email from The Outnet. And they have a pretty stellar new crop of Burberry in stock that’s marked down by at least half. I’m just saying, when life offers you a Burberry cashmere peacoat for $500, you take it! But you’ll have to fight me for that navy cardigan-coat. As is always the case at The Outnet, these babies will sell fast, so don’t deliberate for too long.
As if that weren’t enough Burberry news, Nordstrom’s marked down their fair share of Brit goodies for you too, and just in time for fall.
I’m off to fill my shopping cart, and you should be too…but don’t forget to come back and tell me what you nabbed!
It’s September, friends! Finally! It’s my favorite month of the year – and not just because my birthday’s fast approaching (though that definitely helps). September always feels like a season of possibility. Leaves change, the air takes on that delicious chill, kids are locked back in their cells for another nine months, and the world feels like it makes a bit more sense.
So, I’m choosing to ignore the fact that the weather report claims it’ll be 90 degrees this weekend where I am. Instead, I’m looking ahead. To short boots, cozy fires, and soup season. Grab your first pumpkin spice latte of the season and do a little something to help your brain transition to fall. Need a few suggestions? Read on
Happy Earth Day, friends! (Or Earth Day, Observed, at least.) Since you know I’m all about living the green lifestyle, doing everything I can to curb excess waste and…
Yeah, not so much. You could look pretty hard before finding someone less environmentally-inclined than I am. If I’m honest, I barely recycle. I never carry those reuseable totes for grocery shopping (though I have about 967 of them spilling out of my hall closet). And last night, I put some old medications right in the garbage can. I know, I’m going straight to hell.
But. Every now and then, I see a little something I could do to be better. Nothing drastic, just a little nudge of environmental altruism, without going too far out of my way. And hey, in those rare instances, when I get to pat myself on the back for all the polar bears I’m saving? I’m totally an activist. Read on
Friends, my love for a great ballet flat is well-documented in these pages. And I think you all know by now that my love for London Sole ballets in particular is right up there near “adoring fan” status. So when their San Francisco store invited me over to browse the shop and learn a little more about the brand, there was basically no chance I was going to turn them down. Read on
I have a bit of a love/hate with Friday Finds, which is why you haven’t seen it lately. I always want it to be packed to the gills with impossibly perfect picks, but that’s a tall order, isn’t it? But this week, so many covetable chestnuts crossed my path, I couldn’t resist the gravitational pull to show each and every one to you right.this.minute. Read on
Kate M.W. ~ Despite the fact that I’m a strong advocate for flats, sometimes a pair of, say, suede platform wedge t-strap colour-blocked heels just catches my eye and I’m hooked. Completely practical? Perhaps not. But there’s something about these Darnell Wedges from Jeffrey Campbell that seem both playful and grown-up, appealing both to my inner child and my subtle chic older self. The mix of black, grey, and maroon provide a palette that’s versatile and easy to work with.
