Hey friends! August is almost coming to a close, so I thought I’d update you with some of my monthly must-have links! Enjoy.
When you shop soooooooo much, you can get kinda picky about the stores you go to. Ask any stylist or wardrober who is busily running around (on a budget! on a deadline! with a billion particular and specific client requests in mind!), and they’ll tell you that they prefer a boutique setting where the sales peeps know their inventory and can get you what you need, fast. That is just one of many reasons Santa Monica’s latest boutique, Hip’tique, is on my Favorites list.
Call it the Gucci-effect but I’m drooling over super rich jewel toned color blocking. And one way to start? With purple pants. Gucci’s designer Frieda Giannini made the mix of color blocking looking positively magical but I promise, that magic is muy easy to make yourself. Contrasting tones, shown left, are rich and chic and honestly, you don’t have to spend a fortune!
But of course, finding trends that haven’t quite had a chance to make it off the runway and into an affordably priced store is pure frustration. But never fear, your purple-pants-a-finder is here! I’ve combed the interwebs and found a few pairs of violet trousers I think you’ll flip for!
