Well guys, I’m off to the mountains again in order to hike, do yoga, eat well, renew, revive, and just in general take care of myself. I’ll be gone around three weeks, during which time I will be posting occasionally. Do check back. I love you impossibly.
Although the following clutches are in subdued tones, they’re all satisfyingly loud enough to be excellent lazy girl’s styling tools. First up: a good option if you like the idea of something statement-y but at the same time don’t want to make too crazy-big a statement.
This studded option is quite elegant, if you can use the word “elegant” to describe a studded bag.
A blue(ish) and black leopard print is just too far up my alley not to include here.
I usually wait until the holidays to do my party in a top posts, since the kind of event they were inspired by—crowded gatherings where all anyone takes note of is what you’re wearing from the waist up—happen around that time of year. But there have been recent requests for a warmer-weather version, and it is suddenly nothing if not toasty here in New York, so let’s have at it. This pretty butterfly print would probably be too girly for me on a flowy-er shape, but I like it just fine on a button-down.
My favorite color combination + a chevron print = almost too much excellent.
I am similarly besotted by this lush floral: the colors are just so exactly right, somehow.
This is the loud, craven party in a top that gets shut down by the police, and that everyone talks about for years.
A really graphic, slightly retroish star print.
This silhouette has gotten very popular over the past few seasons, which I understand: it exposes an almost universally flattering part of the body (the shoulders) while covering a sometimes problematic one (the upper arms) all in one fell swoop.
I bring you coasters, mostly because I’ve been looking for a new set, and—as I have related in the past—news is what happens to editors. First up: I am so in love with the improbable color combination here that I wish it were a dress.
This braided version is like a cute little mini-rug.
These are so fun and bright, but still also sophisticated enough not to look silly.
