Hermes Picotin Lock

Sorry for the long silence….a lot has been going on and am just coming up for air! Hope you all had a good Bank Holiday/Memorial Day weekend and are ready for the summer.

Let me break the silence with my new favorite, multi-use, no wait list Hermes bag. The Picotin! I have had so much fun with this bag – with charms, twillys, or just as is. My personal favorite size is the 22 because it is just large enough to carry during the day, and not to big to double up for the evening (with a bright twilly to match my outfit). This makes the Picotin the perfect travel bag (especially when one is limited to just one carry on).

The Picotin is also one of the few bags available online (depending on your country of residence).

What do you think? Would you use this bag? Which is your favorite bag and style? 

Target Collaboration 2016

We all know how crazy the Target collaborations get!  Remember Target and Altuzarra collaboration? what about Target Collaboration Time?  Well, there’s another one coming your way tomorrow – yes, April 17th, 2016 – Target’s collaboration with Marimekko will be available online and in stores on April 17th!  If this collaboration is anything like Marimekko’s collaboration with Banana Republic (featured here – Black & White – my guess is that it will be sold out in hours!

You can view the look book here!  Like with all collaborations, my recommendation is that you look through the look book in advance, figure out the sizing and make a list of what you want.  The paddle board is on my wish list!

The Kate

You already know that the “Kate” pointed toe studded flat by Topshop is going to be gone gone gone!! Reminiscent of the Valentino Rockstud (but a tenth of the price) the Kate is a great shoe to transition you to the spring/summer season. Enhance a simple pair of distressed jeans and a white Tee, with these studded beauties or make sure you are the attention on date night – the Kate is definitely a shoe to be reckoned with! 

The Kage is available at Topshop or online at Nordstrom.  Don’t be left hanging without Kate! 



Can’t wait for this rain to ease and the sun to shine so that I can finally wear the D’Orsay by Alexander Wang! I have a feeling this is going to be my shoe for the summer. I have been walking around the apartment in them, hoping that somehow the weather fairies will see how much I wish to wear these out!!!


I am partial to the suede nude tone ones, but the D’Orsay comes in leather too and a range of colors.


And while I patiently wait for the spring and summer days….these gorgeous booties will keep me company.  

Am particularly loving the detail in the heel.
