In Search Of...

I am not typically a winner, as far as contests go.

Recently, I got hooked on the TBS dark comedy, Search Party, a reverse effect of winning my first-ever Instagram contest. Kudos TBS and Will Leather Goods for successful marketing strategy - lol! What I won was a darling leather pouch that you'll see below! It has a handy wristlet with some great fringe on the end chain - it's perfect for little outings or casual nights out.

I realize I have not posted in a while. I'm working on getting back into good, regular habits again, now that the holidays are over! I also realized this is my second post in a row wearing my favorite little yellow beret - oopsy, please forgive, but you can only best wear a beret during the fall and winter anyway. My cowgirl boots have kept up well, and reminded me of the cool-casual style of the west that the clutch gives off.

WHAT I'M WEARING/aside from the aforementioned clutch?

  1. Luxe Rachel Zoe Belted Wrap Cape - found mine at the Brooklyn Flea, but was able to find the same cut online, just in a different color.
  2. Shepler's cowgirl boots - authentic and a wild array of styles! I've had mine for about 10 years (still in top shape), and they add a versatile, whimsical western flair to so many types of outfits.
  3. Lightweight Check Wool and Silk Scarf by Burberry.
  4. Jeans, from the best variety of wallet-friendly selection of tall-girl jeans shop via Alloy Apparel.
  5. MAC lipstick in color Pink Pigeon, which is exactly like Candy Yum-Yum, so I've heard.
  6. Fierce Beret - in case you forgot from my previous post ;) by Valfré.

What's the best contest you have ever won?

More importantly - have you watched Search Party? Ben and I just finished Season Two. I laugh SO hard and cannot wait for the next season!

Hope 2018 is off to a swell start for all you lovelies! Look forward to reading your comments!

Opening Party @The Bowery Bond

Up-and-coming artists from around the globe gathered to celebrate the opening of joint store space, The Bowery Bond, on Thursday, June 22nd. Giant balloons, drinks a-flowin', and beats from DJ Crazy B filled the space, while artists mingled, with their displays of handmade goods.

If I could take anything away from this multi-artist store, I believe it would be this rock'n'roll jacket - so rad!

OMG!

I heart these clear sunnies. ;)

Don't miss finding a unique piece - whether it be jewelry, art, home decor, or clothing! There is a wild, daring array of inspiring one-of-a-kind items here on Bowery. My husband, Ben, found a hilariously cool series of Ab Fab themed goodies by sweet CherocPopShop.

If your style errs on the adventurous and whimsical spectrum, I would highly recommend checking out the clothing ByRaha. Her items are ethically-sourced handmade luxury items mainly made in Iran. She is a pal and invited us to the party, so I am a tad biased. :)

Fantastic mules! I’d wear ‘em.
