Loeffler Randall

before i head out of NYC en route to the cherry blossom explosion in D.C. (we're taking the train- love trains- i find them so romantic!) i had to share my new score that just shipped this morning! i make it no secret that i am completely obsessed with Loeffler Randall boots and shoes. BOOTS especially! i recently splurged on the perfect "Kenton" that i think are great for spring. these guys were out of stock EVERYWHERE- BUT good old eBay came to my rescue. miraculously i found them in my size and brand new. (ange will be so jealous). the color (honey) is in the nude family and will work with just about anything- even my new favorite Sheridan French tunic dresses that are all packed and ready to go.

the lovely Kenton


i'm also coveting these beauties called "Fawn" at Barneys now. kind of awesome, right?

once again- i beg of you- Jessie Randall (how cute is she?! AND she's from WORCESTER) bring back your ready-to-wear collection! i'm dying over here!


Have a great weekend! I'll report back Tuesday!

grocery list: loafers and sequin

i've had a hankering for an old-school pair of penny loafers lately.  i recently tried a pair on- but did not pull the trigger.  i've been seeing SO MANY Stubbs and Wootton ones (and the copied variety) EVERYWHERE- and although i think they are playful-  i'm leaning toward a less animated version.  i remember wearing loafers in college like crazy- but this time around i will steer clear of pairing them with anything plaid.  there is something very un-chic/chic (you follow me?  ya- i'm not sure i do either) about the classic brown leather loafer and i'm itching to wear them with something glam.  like a sequin blazer.  yep.  throw in a beat up pair of jeans, a white tank, and a soft, pastel spring scarf?  i'm feeling it- and i'd totally sport it tonight if i had all the ingredients.

short is beautiful

speaking of kaftans- the shorter variety is just as cute and may be an easier length for those a little unsure of the to-the-floor look.   the "Beatrice" that i featured yesterday also comes knee length- and i will make sure i have both versions in the shop for you to try! 

i'm also loving the traditional bat wing style below.  i'd contrast all those yummy pinks and style it with  turquoise and gold.  pops of neon (that hat ribbon and bracelet!) make it feel o-so-current.  i'd wear this  look on the street or the beach.

Kaftan Crazed

I just got off the phone with the rep for Jules Reid whose kaftans I am totally digging and want in the shop (and my closet) pronto.  I don't know what it is about these islandy/70's-chic pieces, but I have always LOVED them.  Trying to find a really good one that doesn't make you look like you're Mrs. Roper has been a challenge.  Until now. 

Behold "The Beatrice"

this print is excellent

a preppier turq/pink version

although it would be superb if these dresses came with a POOL and a Palm Beach pad- i think they are still perfect for hosting a summer soiree (with easy flat sandals) or simply wearing to lunch/dinner or at home when you just want to feel fabulous lounging on your sofa.

the designer and her inspiration...

I'm going to have a look in person next week in NYC.  I'll keep you POSTED!!!

Thank you, Panache!

I just received a lovely email from PANACHE blog that recently featured Holiday.

Diana, who writes her blog in both English and Spanish, is adorable.  I'm smitten with the photo of her in a Holiday outfit!  (note to self: take more outfit photos!)  I love featuring other people's content and talent- and I'm doubly appreciative when someone takes the time to talk about us! Click the link above or below for a gander!
