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 …

Noupi Head

I have a soft spot for graphic tees + anything cute, and this Noupi tee is the perfect combo. Cinthya (aka Poly Cinco) was wonderful enough to send me one of her Icon tees before release, and I absolutely love it. Noupi is certainly something wonderful eclectic, with designs featuring kawaii doodle chibi characters to sassy Disney princesses. See more Noupi designs here. They’re having a special pop-up shop event August 8th til midnight with limited edition prints, so go check it out! My personal fav is their Noupi Head sweatshirt, fingers crossed they’ll be printing those soon. It’d be a brilliant addition to my casual fall wardrobe.   Wearing: Noupi Head Icon T-shirt available here J Brand Slim Fit Denim Jacket in Atomic Rag & Bone Jeans Isabel Marant Bazil Sneakers¬†

Isabel Marant Bazil

At Last…Isabel Marant Bazil Sneakers

There really are no words to explain how absolutely frustrating it was to try and hunt down a pair of Isabel Marant Bekket sneakers (especially black) for the past few seasons/years. I either couldn’t find them, missed them, or couldn’t afford them. I was determined to get my hands on them this time around, and with the help of wonderful Mandi (findmeamuse), I did! I passed my name around to boutiques around the world like hotcakes, and it was done. I don’t know which was harder, tracking them down or waiting months for them to finally arrive! They are beautiful. Gorgeous. >Insert whatever adjective relating to amaziness here<. I was a little skeptical of the python print at first, but the execution is second to none. It’s subtle, but obvious enough to add just a little bit of texture. I’m waiting on 2 other colors, since I couldn’t make up my mind, but the black Bazil is doing an excellent job of convincing me. For anyone who’s confused by the sizing, these sneakers are in …
