Currently Coveting: Loeffler Randall Sarie Strappy Sandals
Last summer, I lived in a pair of sandals embellished with large rhinestone parrots. Though they’re my most cherished sandals, they’re far from understated. This summer, I decided it was time to opt for a more neutral pair which, to me, means gold. These crisscross slides from Loeffler Randall are my perfect sandal: easy on-and-off, great quality and they go with everything. Needless to say, the birds have some new competition.
Currently Doing: Seeing Billy Joel in Concert
This weekend, I’m headed to D.C. with friends to catch the Piano Man, himself, live in concert! One of my all-time favorite artists, I grew up listening to Billy Joel with my parents. I admire his ability to storytell with his songs, many of which recount important historical moments (“Scenes from an Italian Restaurant,” “Downeaster Alexa,” “Allentown”). On top of those, I can’t wait to to hear him play some of my favorite ballads like “And So it Goes,” “She’s Always A Woman” and “Honesty!”
Currently Inspired By: Chanel’s Fall 2014 Campaign
Chanel’s latest ad campaign puts Lululemon to shame with its depiction of Cara Delevingne and crew hitting the ring in tweeds, knee-high sneaker boots and hardcore padlock jewelry. This isn’t the only collection that looked to boxing for inspiration. DANNIJO's upcoming fall line, titled Boxerina, draws upon the juxtaposition of the toughness of boxers and grace of ballerinas. These references have me wondering if I should throw on some gloves and try it as my next workout!
Currently Following: @donalddrawbertson
This whimsical artist is hands-down one of my favorite people to follow on Instagram. Using fashion as his primary subject, this man can make art out of anything from dollar bills (featuring President Anna Wintour) to raw sugar (a Louis Vuitton logo). It’s so fun to watch what he dreams up!
Currently Rocking: Pearl and Glitter Teardrops Tiered Necklace by Mawi
I’m absolutely smitten with this slightly eccentric mixed media necklace by Mawi. The ladylike pearl strand gets an upgrade when embellished with teardrops made from actual glitter and adorned in rose gold spikes. Plus, the added green rhinestone chain creates a layered effect for an instantly styled neckline. I’ve been pairing it with a bright green dress from Rag & Bone!
