HAPPY THANKSGIVING + BLACK FRIDAY SALE ROUNDUP

HAPPY THANKSGIVING AND BLACK FRIDAY SALE ROUNDUP

Happy Thanksgiving!

Here’s a brief list of what I’m thankful for this year in no particular order. This is a great time of year to reflect on all the big  and small blessings, and celebrate with loved ones over a delectable meal.  Please let us know what you are thankful for in the comments.

My Family and Friends
Their support and love is invaluable and I couldn’t do what I do without them. I think this is true of any entrepreneur who forges stubbornly ahead.

Vintage Jewelry
My love for the statement bauble has not lost its’ appeal. The hunt for the next big find is just as exciting as the first time I spotted a statement piece at a flea market or an estate sale. This year, it was drop dead Kenneth Jay lane smoky rhinestone belt from the 60s. There’s nothing like seeing something in a book or an auction catalog and having it in your possession to admire and enjoy. See my collection at Sasha Maks Vintage.

SCARLETT SMITH: CULOTTES CHIC

0-40
I had the pleasure of first wearing Amanda Scarlett Smith’s  Folded Wing dress for a post in INSPIRARE magazine in October, see the post here.  The Spring/Summer 2015 “Reflective Tranquility”  collection awes with its understated and powerful silhouettes.

For a second look for my blog,  I was immediately drawn to one of my favorite articles of clothing, that I always find in vintage shops–culottes. It’s great to see them on the runways again! The FiSF’s designer’s version is high-waisted and minimalist. Paired with a silk top based on a circle the effect is severe and elegant.

The ideal accessory for such an ensemble is an oversized architectural pendant necklace by  the one and only Lanvin. It reinforces the clean lines of the set, and introduces a doze of bold ornament.

THE BIG ISLAND GETAWAY: MAXED OUT

A quick getaway to a tropical island calls for a streamlined travel wardrobe and besides packing a couple of swimsuits, jeans, t-shirts and shorts. I needed an impactful and versatile maxi dress for my vacay on the drop dead gorgeous Big Island of Hawaii. This is one my fave things to wear, whether on vacation or not–a dramatic maxi. It’s easy to dress up or down and does not call for too many extras. When I found this 80s rayon maxi dress, I was of course blown away by the oversized graphic flower design. Wearing après-sun or to dinner it’s an easy way to dress while taking a break from it all.

What is you go-to item in your vacation closet? Please share in the comments.

KICKING IT ON THE BIG ISLAND

White T shirt, jeans and ChucksIt was time for a much needed getaway. I’m not a big fan of the sun and beach variety of vacation, I prefer to discover what a more urban trip has to offer. But if it’s time to relax and unplug nothing beats the Hawaiian Islands.Having traveled to Honolulu before and while remembering it as beautiful, it was also crowded and commercial. So when an opportunity arose to see another kind of Hawaii, I could not resist and spent a week on the Big Island, traipsing the golden sand beaches (and black and green ones), swimming in the clear, turquoise waters, and enjoying local seafood delicacies like poke and a surprise discovery that chocolate covered squid is delish. Yeah sounds like a total cliche, but when it’s this good,  I’ll take it!

SCARLETT SMITH: ‘WINDGED FOLDS’

wingedfoldsThere are certain elements of fashion design that make them stand out, in the case of Scarlett Smith–the purity of line, the clarity of execution, the luxury of integrity are those indisputable characteristics.

I met Amanda Scarlett-Smith at a fashion event for an emerging San Francisco designer, she mentioned she was a fashion designer as well, and we planned to keep in touch. Serendipitously, we ran into each other several months later on the street. Amanda told me about her Spring/Summer 2015 collection based on the Japanese art of wrapping, and that she was a designer in residence at the Fashion Incubator San Francisco (FiSF). I was extremely intrigued by the concept. I have been been keenly aware of Japanese design and esthetic concepts since studying interior design. We planned for a visit to FiSF.

SLIP IT ON

The heatwave continues and what could be better then a wisp of a spaghetti strap slip dress to keep your cool.  A chunky two-tone choker, an armful of bangles and sculptural heels keep the lightweight dress grounded. As soon as temps drop, I’ll be wearing this sexy number with a chunky sweater and flat over-the-knee boots.
