Barking Charm

Woof woof? Marc Jacobs has once again tickled my cutsey fancy, this time with his “Friends of Mine” loafers. I managed to grab these puppies (pun totally intended) at a discount from Piperlime during the holiday season and am completely obsessed with how small and dainty they make my feet look. Maybe it’s the French Bulldog in them? Whatever it is, they make my checkered Vans slip-ons look like giants. Yes, I am back on the Vans train too.

Isabel Marant Salome Shorts

Pumped Up Kicks

New season, new sneakers! Isabel Marant came out with quite a few versions and colors of her famous Bekett and Betty/Bobby sneakers this season, including the Balesi, Bayley, Wila, Brian, and Baya. Cute Converse-like stars, perforated leather, and sweet piping galore! As tempting as they all were, I decided to stick with the plain solid Beketts in Beige since I knew I’d get more wear out of these compared to the other styles. Result: happy! I also decided to swap the blue Salome shorts (skort) I mentioned in the previous post with red. I instantly fell in love with them 10x more when I saw them at forwardforward. According to my Chinese “ba gua”, red is my lucky color this year (this is me justifying my inclination towards anything red lately).

Rag & Bone Skinny in Clay

Friday Five

1. Rag & Bone Skinny Jeans in Clay I’m pretty sure I heard Etta James’ “At Last” when I saw these. :P I absolutely love the brick red and it’s perfect for the holidays. Find it here! * 2. Swarovski Erika China Pendant Birthday present from mama! Isn’t she cute?! Swarovski themed their Eliot/Erika special edition collection “Around the World” this time. Available at Swarovski. LOVE the UK one too! 3. Sterling Silver Casted Pine Cone Earrings I didn’t even know there were pine cones this size! A friend from my jewelry class casted these mini pine cones and made them into earrings…and I had to have them. Just in time for the holiday season! Check out her other work here. 4. Painting by Pernille Damgaard My beautiful and talented friend painted and gifted me this work of art last week. 5. Sandro Albatorock Studded Sneakers They’re sneakers with studs, need I say more? I’m wearing these puppies out.   * – affiliate link included in post

Isabel Marant Betty Black

Betty and Flavie

The Isabel Marant Betty sneakers…what would I do without them? I’ve become quite the sneaker fiend these past few seasons, but they’re so irresistible! The now popular hidden-wedge-in-sneaker style does wonders for your legs (something I desperately need), and I intend to take advantage of that as much as I can. Espejto had a 30% off fall sale recently and I got my hands on the Isabel Marant Etoile Flavie top I’ve been eyeing for awhile. I love it! The embroidery is flawless and flows perfectly with the fabric. I sized up for a longer and looser fit. Beautiful jewelry from beautiful people. From the top: sterling silver casted sand dollar necklace c/o Linda, bronze casted bobcat claw by Rachel Young (she will be showing at The Festival of Arts in Laguna Beach next year!), Tiffany Elsa Peretti Dove necklace from dear mama. Sorry for the super in your face shot, but I really wanted to show these awesome Iosselliani Skull Earrings! Stay tuned for the Friday Five, a holiday nail tutorial, and holiday gifts …
