You know when you’re scrolling through Instagram, and you click on someone to see more of their images, and you see someone they tagged in an Instagram and you are curious so you click on those people (you all do this, right?) … the rabbit hole of checking people out is how I came across this brand, Reece Hudson. On Instagram. I saw this Instagram on RGB Cosmetics feed and was thinking WHO DESIGNED THAT BAG! So I clicked on the tags in the Instagram and immediately started following Reece Hudson and the designer/founder Reece Solomon, and had to check out her site and I am in LOVE with all the bags.

When I saw some of the images from the Gucci Spring 2014 runway show on Pinterest I immediately knew I needed to check out the entire collection. Whoa! This collection is gorgeous. I’m a huge fan of these shiny deep dark jewel toned fabric in this collection. I love the deep-V (although I’d wear a not-see-through bra or top under the dress of course), and the loose sexy silhouette of the collection.
“She [Frida Giannini, creative director at Gucci] quoted the work of Erté, the fashion illustrator of the 1910s, as a source for her shapes, and the inspiration found in stained glass, Art Nouveau–era windows for the stylized florals she worked into prints and metallic embroideries.” —Sarah Mower, Vogue.com

When I close my eyes and think of Calypso St. Barth, I literally transport to a tranquil yet luxurious beach resort. Where there is soft music, an inviting breeze, and you are in a daze of happiness. I’ve recently added a few pieces from Calypso to my home — will divulge later! But here are some of my favorite pieces at Calypso St. Barth right now, and trust me, it was hard to narrow it down to 16. Their entire ‘maison’ section I’d like to import into my home.

Loeffler Randall clearly wants me to go bankrupt (I say that with love). I mean, their pre-fall line is fab (everything they design is fab). I’ve been pondering a Rider Bag for a while now. So many options!!! The natural Rider bag with studs that I posted in my June Wishlist is probably my favorite (clearly considering I had a fashiongasm over it), and I think my second fave is the black lizard embossed leather one (which is currently on sale… is that a sign?) and you can never go wrong with the black with black studs, so obviously this is a paramount wardrobe decision. And I’m clearly in a state of obsession over these new booties considering I featured the black ones as well.
My black rain booties have seriously been a good investment. I’ve already gotten my money out of them (and I’m pretty sure I even got them when they were on sale, although they are worth every penny). Looking chic in the rain is no problem with those guys. If you are a size 11 in need of rain booties, please buy these as they were the ones I really wanted, but my size was out. Everywhere.
It’s taking every ounce of me not to go nutso on their site, but I will definitely have to add a piece or two to my wardrobe for this fall. Who’s with me in their Loeffler Randall obsession? Which items are your favorite?
ONE // Sand Fenton Buckle Bootie, TWO // Circle Bag in Jade, THREE // Simona Band Sandals, FOUR // Haircalf Shooter Bag, FIVE // Silvi Wedge Bootie, SIX // Octavia High Top Sneaker Flats, SEVEN // Tamsin Classic Pump, EIGHT // Dahlia Platform Sandal, NINE // Lock Clutch, TEN // Rider Bag in Black Lizard, ELEVEN // Mini Rider, TWELVE // Quinnie Flats, THIRTEEN // Rider Bag in white, FOURTEEN // Pouchette Bag in Bubblegum, FIFTEEN // Rider Bag in Jade, SIXTEEN // Duffel Bag natural with studs, SEVENTEEN // Damaris Platform Sandal, EIGHTEEN // Rider Bag, black with black studs
