Best of the Week 12/30/16



As I was putting this list together, I realized everything was the same color, so think of it as the special all-black edition. First off, my husband so generously got me A Detacher’s brilliant wrap sweater for Hanukkah — it’s like a classic ballerina warm-up top except that it’s longer and super luxurious in soft alpaca. I already have it in honey and now I can’t get enough of this one (over tee shirts, dresses, you name it!)

I almost did back flips when I saw this classic LL Bean Bag in blackest black. I ordered it with my initials in black (even though they recommend platinum) and I cannot wait to break it in!
Picked up these near-perfect mules on sale at Oak and haven’t looked back (they’re especially cute with thick wool socks).
My awesome and thoughtful mother-in-law gave me a Boscia Cleansing sponge for Christmas and it really does make washing your face that much better. Thanks, Irene!
And I keep reaching for my cute cropped Madewell black jeans which show off ankle boots (and those mules!) so well.

    I am a huge fan of Konjac sponges and they are biodegradable! Boscia is definitely one of the best brands that make Konjac sponges.

    I’m loving this bag! What style did you get your initials monogrammed in? I’m digging the black on black! So chic
