SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Giannico

Giannico came onto my radar this past year after coming across a pair of Andy Warhol banana heels (there’s also a Picasso-inspired pair that’s to-die-for).  With whimsical, fun-loving designs, styles, and lots of bright colors (for my inner 5-year old), I’m completely smitten with the designer, Nicolò Beretta’s designs.

My latest loves are these yellow, blue and white mules that are simply perfect for Spring.

Pair them with a midi skirt for a brunch date, or with a pair of white culottes to accentuate the bright pop of these mules.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Stella McCartney

When Stella McCartney first debuted her platform brogues at her Autumn/Winter 2014 runway show, my reaction was a little bit like this guy:

 

But after enough time had passed and I started seeing them on every celebrity and street starlet everywhere, I became accustomed to them like every other bizarre fashion trend (hello, Fendi furry buggies!), and began to love them (or at least let go of judgment…) in their own quirky way that I may never fully understand myself.

On that note, I bring to you Stella McCartney’s cotton-canvas brogues from the Spring ’16 runway show.  They are printed with two of the key patterns from the collection- red & white checks and black & marigold stripes, adorned with the signature wooden sole.  Pair them with layers upon layers of denim and a pair of shades, or with this Stella McCartney maxi dress for the ultimate Americana cool-girl effect.  Bonus points if you can get your hands on a Fendi buggy FTW.

What’s Trending: The Cape Dress

Burberry Spring/Summer 2016 Runway

Capes were all over the Fall/Winter 2015 runways, and the trend easily transitioned to the Spring and Summer 2016 runway, with the introduction of cape dresses, tops, ponchos, and sleeveless vests.  

There were robe-inspired capes as sleeves at Zuhair Murad; flowing, long capes as the trains of gowns at Guo Pei; sheer, floor-length capes worn separately over dresses and jumpsuits at Chanel; and capes as sleeves to the gowns at Ralph & Russo.  Capes infuse the class & glamour of the 1920’s into a modern look that feels new and reinvented.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Kat Maconie

Kat Maconie is a British fashion designer who started her eponymous in 2009.  She is known for her bold colors, strong prints, architectural shapes, metallic details, all infused with her signature tongue-in-cheek attitude.

With so many fun and lively designs to choose from, it’s difficult to choose a favorite, but these colorful India heels caught my eye (well, naturally…).  With embroidery detailing and a bright suede chunky heel, these sandals are perfect for a sunny Spring or Summer day.  Wear ’em with a white, blue, yellow, or green sundress for a perfect mix of playful and chic.

Beauty Review: Valentia Beauty Eye Cream & Hydration Mask

Valentia recently reached out to me to try out a few of their products – their True Glow Eye Cream, the Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask, & their Royal Rose Hydrating Serum.  I happily obliged, as I’m sure you all know I am a total product junkie and LOVE trying new stuff.  Plus, their beauty products are made in a cruelty-free beauty lab owned and operated by women in the USA.  Their products are made using sustainable energy, are vegan-friendly, and use 98% natural ingredients.

First off, the skinny on the True Glow Eye Cream.

It contains the following:

Astaxanthin: The reigning King of the antioxidants – please take a bow – this little guy has 600 times more antioxidant power than Vitamin C, increases skin moisture, smoothes fine lines , and restores elasticity to the skin.

Resistem: or “Natures Miracles” as we like to call them. These plant stem cells work to repair damaged skin cells and protect the skin from stress related aging, leaving skin refreshed and renewed!

Vitamin C: This standout vitamin helps treat multiple skin care and really brightens the under eye are. Your under eye area will feel firmer and look brighter.

Organic Rosehip Oil: Dry and flaky under eyes be gone! Rosehip oil amps up skins moisture content, delivering deep nourishment and reducing the appearance of fine lines that can creep in when we’re a bit dry under the eye.

Arnica: This botanical herb has been widely used in homeopathic medicine for bruising and soreness which is why we chose it for our True Glow Eye Cream. It stimulates white blood cells to relieve dark circles and puffiness.

After using this product for about 5 weeks, there were noticeable results in my under eye area.  I received numerous compliments about how fresh faced I looked (even on those days where I tossed and turned for hours the night before).  Fine lines and dark circles were noticeably diminished, and my under eye area truly looked plumper.

I would recommend this product to anyone looking to fix their dark under eye circles and as an anti-aging tool to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, along with plumping the under eye area.

Now, let’s dive into their Royal Rose Hydrating Serum.

A look at the ingredients:

– Rose Damascena: One of the most nourishing and skin friendly natural oils, providing balance, moisture, and a variety of vitamins and minerals to the skin.

– Niacinamide (Vitamin B): This potent vitamin has been clinically proven to fade away hyperpigmentation, sun spots, and acne.

– Rosehip Seed Oil: Naturally rich in Vitamins C & A, these essential fatty acids work quickly to lock in skin’s moisture.

– Evening Primrose Oil: Provides light, non-oily moisture to the skin, never clogging or irritating the skin.

– Bearberry: Reduces melanin production, thereby lightening the skin, revealing a brighter complexion.

– Lavender: Heals the skin, treating pimples, wounds, and sores.

After trying out this serum for 5 weeks in addition to the eye cream, I noticed my skin seemed more hydrated and brighter.  Immediately, my skin looked and felt softer.  The verdict?  Highly recommend to anyone looking to smooth, nourish, and moisturize their skin.

What are your favorite skin products?  Have you tried anything new lately?

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Miu Miu

Miu Miu is totally killing it in the shoe department lately.  First, the glittery retro heels that dreams are made of, and now…  Pink, yellow, and grey color blocked cowgirl boots with their logo and KITTENS (they are always kittens, never cats, to me…) emblazoned on ’em.  These badass boots scream IDGAF…  in the cutest way possible.  Wear ’em with a pair of denim jeans and a white button up, or with an all black ensemble for a chic look that lets these boots stand out on their own.
