Not Your Grandmother’s Crochet Needle

I’m sure we all have that sweater, pair of socks, or scarf that our grandmas knitted us when we were young, but this hot summer trend doesn’t come from your granny’s crochet needle! I’m loving the new hippie chic crochet style pieces in stores right now. I just received the cute neon green crochet TOMS slip-ons from their summer collection, in the mail today. They are bohemian and breezy and I think definitely obsession worthy! Check out the spring, summer, and resort collections of your favorite designers, there are most likely some crochet inspired pieces. You can find this trend in tons of different items like jewelery, clothing, hair accessories, and hats. It’s absolutely on point for summer!

Daily Obsession for May 12, 2011

The moment I saw this jacket I was obsessed! Being hot pink fuchsia, it’s an updated interpretation of the classic blazer. It has a slightly relaxed style, yet it’s still tailored for a feminine fit. Rebecca Minkoff has always been known for her edgy yet elegant handbags, though recently she has expanded her designs to apparel and shoes. My favorite thing about her pieces is that she always picks the most luxurious materials, fabrics, and textures. The Becky Jacket is right on cue being made of a sumptuous silk crepe, which is one of my absolute favorite fabrics to wear. I think this piece is the perfect little jacket for a summer night out. If you love this blazer as much as I do, you can find it at saks.com or rebeccaminkoff.com. You can pair it with a cute summer dress or even a tied silk blouse and skinny jeans.

Daily Obsession for May 9, 2011

Today I am totally obsessed with these Natalia Skimmer ballet flats by French Sole fs/ny. Not only are they made out of the softest buttery leather, they also come in every cute pastel color you can think of. They are absolutely perfect for the Spring and Summer months ahead. You can find them here at shopbop.com. The label French Sole  fs/ny, is a part of Shopbop’s newest ONE by collection. Developed as a curated collection of exceptional pieces, ONE by is home to standout items that represent the top of their categories—the very best shoes, clothing, and accessories. I think these darling pastel shoes are certainly exceptional, don’t you? You truly can’t go wrong with a simple classic ballet flat. I don’t even know which color I would choose, they are all so gorgeous!

To Tie-dye For

I can’t get enough of Spring and Summer fashion, especially the bright and the colorful. That’s why I simply die for these Bougainvillea Tassel sandals in tie-dyed tropical flower hues! They are made of soft and supple leather and the slight wedge gives them an extra oomph. I can picture myself wearing them with a flowy maxi dress or a bohemian top and cut-off shorts. You can find them here at anthropologie.com if you love them too. I think they are certainly to tie-dye for! 

Hot and Single

It’s my favorite time of year. Spring? No, Sak’s Fifth Avenue semi-annual Friends and Family Sale. You simply cannot beat 20% of the entire store! I have been searching for a small bag or clutch for evenings out without any luck. So to my delight, as I was perusing the amazing handbag section at Sak’s, this hot little number caught my eye. It was a delightfully bright bag in the midst of tons of beige and black. I simply had to have it. It was perfect for me, like my name was written right on it! The hottest pink I’ve ever seen on the Marc Jacobs quilted Single leather bag. It’s demure in size but extremely elegant and it’s perfect for a stylish single lady. Marc Jacobs has long been one of my fashion lovers and I know I can always find something I love in his designs. I am ecstatic to wear it, and it even  goes with my favorite MAC lipstick, Candy Yum Yum. So fabulous!

Daily Obsession for May 3, 2011

Today’s Daily Obsession is absolutely de-lish. I’m talking about Candy Yum Yum matte lipstick from MAC’s Quite Cute collection. It’s the brightest most saturated color in a matte that MAC has released to date. The Quite Cute collection is full of adorable summer-ready shades of soft  pink, purple, and nude. I adore the entire collection, but the Candy Yum Yum  lipstick is definitely my absolute favorite! Now that I know and love this bold color, I’ve seen it everywhere on tons of famous pouts. I know that some of you might be wary to wear such a bright color of pink, but I urge you to go to your local MAC counter and test it out. You will love it, pretty promise!
