Sydney’s Black & White Picks

Screen Shot 2013-10-22 at 10.36.30 PMTheory jacket, Rag & Bone dress, Thierry Lasry sunglasses, Dolce & Gabbana iPhone case, Isotoner gloves, Alexander McQueen bracelet, Alexandre Birman shoes, Topshop shorts, Zara blouse, Phillip Lim bag, Heels.com shoes, Butter London nail polish, Marc by Marc Jacobs watch, BCBG bag, Dannijo Necklace, House of Holland sunglasses, NEFF hat

While the classic black and white combination is one of those trends that doesn’t seem to ever go out of style, it seems to be ever prevalent this fall in the form of separates. In just about every store I’ve been into recently, there’s limited color and an overload of black and white clothes and accessories, one store most noticeable being Intermix.

What’s great about the trend is that it doesn’t require a lot of effort, and it’s easy to find versatile and expensive-looking pieces regardless of your budget. Plus, it’s assumed everyone has at least one solid black and white piece in their closet, so you can easily mix and match the old with the new.

Shop my favorite black and white clothes, shoes, accessories and nail polish above, which although are suitable for all year round, are getting me super excited for Halloween.

A Gift Guide: Mother’s Day

Screen Shot 2013-05-07 at 5.21.42 PM

 

If there’s one woman I can always count on, it’s my mom. She’s the one who will run to the Zara flagship if I’m not in town and pick me up enough pieces to stop my “I have nothing to wear” crisis. Most importantly, she’s the one who listens to me when I’m down, super excited, or in a mood that is somewhere in between. There are so many other moments where I continuously appreciate everything she does for me, and she truly is my best friend.

This Mother’s Day, remind your mom how much she means to you with one or two of these gift ideas. That is, of course in addition to a fun day planned, like Sunday brunch and a viewing of Gatsby, or simply a phone call if you’re at a distance.

Below are my gift picks.

1. Diptyque candle

2. Theodora & Callum scarf

3. Chanel nail polish

4. Caran d’Ache pens

5. Laduree macaroons

6. Threshold soap dish

7. Rachel Zoe bracelet

8. Prada wallet

9. Pucci USB

10. Powerocks portable charger

11. Jonathan Adler vase

12. Jo Malone perfume

13. See by Chloe key chain

14. J.Crew bracelet

15. Dannijo ring

Sigerson Morrison‘s NYC flagship is like a toy store for women who have a love for all things shoes and accessories. I’m one of girls, always feeling as though you can never have too many shoes, especially when finding a pair at the right price. Lately, I’ve been doing a lot of my shoe shopping online, but there’s nothing like going into one of your favorite shoe designer’s flagship stores in the heart of Soho, where the styles, colors, and price points are endless. What I love just as much as the store’s shoes, comprised of both the Sigerson Morrison and Belle by Sigerson Morrison brands, is the super chic and glamorous selection of accessories, including jewelry from Dannijo, sunglasses from Super, and bags from The Cambridge Satchel Company.  The combination makes for a luxe shopping experience, and I enjoy going back time and time again.

By the way, there’s a sale on the Sigerson Morrison website up to 70% off (end of the season). Check it out–it’s worth it.

5 Coachella Must-Haves

Dannijo $320

Mara Hoffman $165

Topshop $156

Butter $14

Madewell $58

Coachella is one of the most popular music festivals around the world–I look at it as the west coast version (it’s in California) of Ultra Music Festival. It’s full of bloggers, celebs, music junkies and of course talent, making it the place to be. The lineup is incredible, including David Guetta, Radio Head, The Black Keys and Avicii. The key to getting your groove on while still looking concert-chic is wearing light pieces that protect you from the sun, (it takes place outside) incorporating pops of color, and being comfortable. Above are my favorites.

It’s officially March! Although it sounds great to think about upcoming holidays, warmer temperatures and light ensembles, it’s still chilly outside, so it’s not time to put away your winter wardrobe just yet. However, to satisfy both your pre-spring fever and the reality of keeping warm while it’s still cool, spice up your outfit with some fun transitional accessories; whether it’s a detachable collar, neon clutch, sapphire shades, pastel cocktail ring or metallic platform sandal. Click on the images to go directly to the item’s website.
