Going for a Hunt

It all started with Ronaldo's ever changing dopkits. I'd watch him strut into every one of his matches toting his toiletries in the it bag's version of a dopkit. 
I've recently found myself pretending to enjoy NBA games with my husband, just to tune in to the pregame ensembles. I had to start Pre-game style, in pure appreciation of the amazing style of athletic professionals. I might be a little bias, but James Harden wins best dressed in my book, every single game. Ladies and gentlemen, James Harden arrived to Oklahoma city, ready to hunt in must be Valentino camo. Along with what looks like a Call of Duty hat, The Houston Rocket was wearing head to toe camo ready to hunt the OKC Thunder. 

Vacay Bestie

February has me dodging flus and dreaming of a vacation and the perfect beach companions to take along.  On my honeymoon I was able to enjoy the amazing island of Lanai with someone that held my lipgloss, sunblock, wallet, and touch up mirror, and I don't mean my husband.  The perfect someone came in form of an Edie Parker beach clutch that my bestie from Katia Boutique introduced me to. This mid-century inspired acrylic piece of art is the best clutch ever. Here she is, enjoying the sunset at the Four Seasons Lanai being a real beach bum.

Splurge Factor: Chanel Gabrielle

Boy does Karl make everyone's life impossible.  I mean, throw us a bone would ya and stop making us fall in love with your incredibly adorable handbags with incredibly non-adorable price tags.  The truth is, sometimes you just crave a Gabrielle and decide that hosting dinner parties is over rated. Guests can eat on the floor. Who needs a dining table anyways. A Gabrielle would look just as pretty in an empty dining room. After all, this baby can be worn 7 different ways...

About the Shoes... Oro Rosso

I'm suffering from post nuptial depression so am in desperate need to jump on wedding Wednesday. For those of you not familiar with PND, it's the last stage in the torturous process of wedding planning, and it takes place a few months following your wedding or honeymoon. PND is similar to a sugar crash or the coming down off amphetamines.  According to Cinched MD... Someone coming down from their wedding day high will likely experience one or more of the following symptoms:
- Irritability: pretty much anything that's normal might bug you; for me, it was my dumb bathroom mirror and it's lacking of a tv like the mirrors during my honeymoon, DUH
- Aggressive behavior displays: aggressive Instagram activity behavior, i mean what's the point of getting wedding pictures if you can't share them.
As a way to tackle the symptoms I review one of the 17,000 choices I made in the wedding planning process, my shoes. I have had a serious obsession with rose gold for about twenty years. Pretty much since I was old enough to know what jewelry was, my eyes have wandered to that hue. It's not surprising that Natalie of A Good Affair, took my obsession seriously and went out of her way to find the perfect hues of rose gold designing our special day. So when it came down to me finding a wedding wardrobe essential, achem, my shoes...the following was imperative: height, color, and simplicity.

I can't decide if my mind is wandering a bit much in questioning this fall's bootie obsession...but I can't help but think that in exactly 3 years I will absolutely loathe the sock booties currently on my wishlist. It seems as sock boots win it this fall but do they also seem like the high heel version of an elf shoe? I mean I could totally see Mrs. Claus wearing the Fendi stretch knit sock boots.

Net-ing Around

Binge watching snaps of all streetstyle sources, is how I spend fashion weeks now a days. I enjoy all of the action, novelty, and delicious greatness from the comfort of my own couch. It just so happens that bag wise I've noticed some people are not messing around, they are net-ing around. The latest bag craze is inspired by a net market tote....take a look....

Backpacking Through Summer

For as long as I can remember, a backpack carried my necessities. Since I outgrew my mother's diaper bag and she dropped me off at pre-k, pronounced preh-keender in espaƱol, all of my items were zipped into a convenient backpack strapped onto both my limbs. And then college came, and I had to wake up every morning figuring out not only what to wear because uniforms were no longer a requirement, but also a large enough bag to carry my essentials because well, Mischa Barton's OC character made us feel like complete tomboy losers if we didn't squeeze our textbooks into a feminine tote. So I ditched the monogrammed L.L. Bean and entered a love affair every young adult begins in college, the perfect designer totes. It wasn't until this May that a precious handmade Italian leather backpack caught my love at Katia Boutique. And so I started my summer fling with Benedetta Bruzziches' Lipari woven leather back pack. This pack has it all. It features adjustable straps, separate compartments, two way zip, and not to mention, endless compliments in public.

Fat Kid in Rome - Dinner

When one finds themselves in the middle of the most visited city in the world, come dinnertime, there is one little hole in the wall you can call home, Il Matriciano. Although you have most likely heard of it, seeing as every time I stop by I notice multiple english screaming tables, it really is not a tourist trap. It really is still good.  Just because it has become attractive to visitors, locals have not stopped dining there. In the past two decades I have been lucky enough to treat myself to this joy and boy has it never had an off-day.
