Summer Wedges

Summer is almost here, or so I like to think. This means that the search for the perfect summer wedge is on. Every year I go on the hunt for that shoe that is comfy enough for the whole day, and manages to carry me from day to night. Few succeed and I often find myself buying flats in the middle of a hot NY summer day when the failing ones let me down. Here are the finalists for Summer 2011. Some are out of budget, but a girl is always allowed to dream.

Oh, and just in case you forgot, I’m a 6.5 and I accept gifts.

Yellow & Blue

I’m going to start this off by admitting I’m not very big on sunglasses. I stick to the classic big black frames and rarely venture away unless it’s for a cheap & fun pair to get me through a sunny summer day.

But these, oh these, had me falling in love at first sight (pun not intended). They have a classic shape that I adore, but with some fun coloring that adds a splash of fun. Gimmee.

Buy them (for me) here.

Swimsuit Summer

Summer is almost here, and swimsuits are everywhere. I hope this summer is as full of swimsuits for you, as (i hope) it will be for me.

Below are my favorite picks for beachware from Net-A-Porter. A bit out of budget, but a girl can dream.

Miu Miu’s feminine take on the bikini.

A unique Missoni crochet one-piece

DVF knows how to pull off a one-piece. It’s sexy yet stylish.

 

Herve’s take on the popular monokini. As expensive as his mini dresses

An amazing coverup by Mara Hoffman

This DVF cover up would make any  beach outfit complete

 

I’ve caught the summer bug. Hope these cloudy and windy days go away soon.

Behold

BHLDN (pronounced beholden), Anthropologie’s new Bridal shop, opened on February 14th to a lot of expectations. Though the dresses left a lot to be desired, the lingerie is worth a virtual trip into the new online store.

Enjoy 🙂

Vera Wang for David’s Bridal

Being on a recent college grad’s budget, I’m all for fashion for the masses. Designer collaborations make me giddy with their over-promises and attainable prices (as you can see here) . This one has no reason to make me excited personally, but I’m still happy for all those brides-to-be that, even on a limited budget, will be able to avoid tacky hideousness and go for a little Vera instead.

Enjoy the surprisingly pretty dresses below.

Uggly Choos

I rushed to H&M the day the Jimmy Choo for H&M line launched. I was excited and hopeful I would find a fabulous pair of the coveted Choo for my closet. The trip was unsuccessful and disappointing. They were ill-fitting, hard, and cheap looking. So I moved on. I didn’t think about it twice.

Now they go ahead and announce a Jimmy Choo and UGG collaboration. What is Tamara Mellon on?! I will admit I am a closeted UGG wearer (I reserve them for trips to school and Whole Foods), but I don’t think Tamara Mellon will be able to make them look trendy and fashionable. The reworked UGGs, which will launch in October, will keep the same shape, but will include “classic Jimmy Choo design details”

If collaborations aren’t your forte you move on and carry on ding what you do best– mile high stilettos and embellished flats.
