All Wrapped Up


A perfect summer dress. It will get plenty of playing time if it’s a good fit and comfortable. Whether for a poolside lunch or an evening party, the right dress can get you there all in one-piece. This beautiful one (above) by Isabel Marant will not disappoint, but at $865., your wallet begs to differ.  Check these out instead:

Bags Matter

A great work bag will do three things 1) Give that polished look you want, 2) Keep your stuff in good order, and 3) Make you feel happy to carry it wherever you go. My favorite right now is from QP Collections. It can be carried either as a briefcase or a backpack, because versatility = love. Handmade, in America, with genuine materials. Triple creme kind of love.

Slides are the thing. Why, you say? Because wearing slippers out of the house sans judgment? Check. Easy-on and no bending over? Check. Cute with shorts, dresses or jeans?  Check. Enough said. Love the Gucci ones pictured above (sans the fur), but they are 1) sold out everywhere, and b) close to 600.00. There’s some pretty good substitutes, like


slides, spring, shoes, mules
