Best of The Week: 12/4/20

Photo: Michael Waring

I am so excited to share a couple of developments with you — first up, my new collaboration with cool Danish shoe line Magnafied — I went for a kind of ’80s denim floral and wear them with just about everything (they basically feel like slippers, no joke). Here I’ve paired them with my new favorite 6397 skinny cords that I can’t seem to stop wearing (and my vintage I heart Gino button from Etsy). Next, I am thrilled to announce that I have accepted a full-time role as AVP,  Brand Voice at Victoria’s Secret. While this means I won’t have as much time to post here, I promise I will as often as I can, and I’ll definitely see you Monday. Have a great weekend! xx I was basically the emoji with the heart eyes when I first saw this fun checkerboard puffer from Kule that would make braving the cold so much more fun!I love a crescent moon, so of course these little 14K studs that are now under $50 are calling my name.

I just really like the ease of this Baggu backpack in a pretty berry color (now on sale) so it’s not overly normcore.

Back in the early naughts, I was the dork still wearing the over-the-noggin headphones when everyone else was using the inner ear ones. And now I am super late to the wireless party, but just got some AirPods Pro and can’t believe I was walking around tethered to my phone getting caught on everything!

I usually go for a crew or V-neck sweater but suddenly am craving this cozy camel turtleneck from Everlane, which I think would make a nice story with some white jeans.It seems like all the cool kids are wearing Caddis Miklos in black, but I am really liking the softer tortoise, too.

My new Mango black denim flares just arrived yesterday and I can’t wait to wear them with a heeled boot and maybe a pretty silk blouse or denim shirt.

  1. You’ll do such exciting things for VS— and we will enjoy the reward of your creative talents there. Congratulations Andrea!

  2. Congratulations – kick ass and then some! I’ll miss my daily dose but will, like Erin, look forward to seeing what you’ve got in store for VS. I may celebrate by taking a chance on the AirPods I am STILL the over- the-ears wearing dork – my ears are small and I gave up trying to get something to fit eons ago. (If they do fit, I’ll be the dork with in-ear phones.)

  3. Congratulations on your new role! Excited to see the effect your magic will have on the VS brand.
    I’m also crazy about those clogs in the first pic. I’m getting a subtle old island Hawaiian vibe.

  4. Ohhhhh- I have been waiting for this Magnified collaboration of yours, they look so fabulous! And while I will most certainly miss my daily hit here, I am thrilled about this move for you. I know you will bring a fresh energy to VS. Congratulations! xx

  5. Wow! Victorias Secret! Are you going to help them revamp their brand?

    I know you could help take them in a groovy direction. They kinda need it!

    Love the clog too.

    You are up to so much it’s inspiring!!!

  6. Congrats on the new gig! I hope you will give us the occasional update on it. Love the clogs and the pattern makes me nostalgic for some floral jeans by Guess or Forenza.

  7. Congrats on the new job – you’ll be brilliant! I look forward to new and exciting things from VS, thanks to you 😉

  8. Wow, could anyone be more perfect to help VS rebrand? I can’t wait to see what you do there! What a cool job. Congratulations!

  9. Wow! Congratulations, Andrea! Well done!

    I’m really going to miss your content. I love your finds and have found many cute/classic/unique items through you. I’m glad you’ll be posting occasionally, but I’ll miss you terribly. Are there any other sites good recommend? I’m already familiar with GOACA.

  10. Congratulations and sad to see you go from daily blogging. Your posts are part of my daily routine and they will be missed. Thanks for all the wonderful suggestions and introductions over the years!

  11. Congrats on the new gig!! Smart of VS to bring you to the table. Love the clogs. 6397 mini jeans are my absolute favorites. Guess I’ll have to go for the cords!!

  12. I am so excited for you! I can’t think of a better person to bring some not 15 yo male fantasy to the table at VS. I so vividly remember being a not-straight not-perky teenager and wandering into that store with friends and just knowing it wasn’t being marketed to people like me. I truly believe you can stop that feeling of exclusion for people. Mazel Tov!

  13. I’m so happy for you—what a cool opportunity. I hope you can make some good waves there! (Is that the right metaphor?). I’ll miss your daily content but look forward to your periodic check ins (and I still enjoy looking over past posts—I’ve gotten so much good info/advice from you!). Wishing you all the best.

  14. You know I’m happy for you, but we’ll miss your daily presence here. VS is lucky to have the coolest woman I know! ❤️

    And congrats on your clog launch!

  16. Congratulations!
    I confess I’ll miss your daily posts.But VS surely needs your help if they want to stay in business. They were so smart to pick you! It will be interesting to see what changes you bring.
    Thanks for all the great posts, and best of luck on the new venture : )

  17. I think VS is damn lucky to have you, and while I look forward to seeing what you do there, I sure will miss my daily dose here on IWTBH! Congratulations, Andrea—all good things in the New Year and much love from a longtime reader!

  18. Congratulations on your new role! They could really use you.

    Will definitely miss your daily posts!

    Regarding the clogs, how is the sizing in comparison for instance to the no6 line?

  19. Whaaaaaat ???? You’re not posting I Want to Be Her ????
    It’s my daily read! On the other hand, VS could really use your chicerina talents.
    I remember when Vs had amazing henley cashmeres for practically nothing!
    Stylist Joni Cohen brought them to my attention and told me they were a best kept
    secret at Vogue. Bring those back !!!!
    xoxo Lo

  20. Congrats on the clogs and the new job! I have a friend who works for VS at a corporate level and she loves working there – she’s been there for many years and has said nothing but good things.

  21. Congratulations, Andrea! Looks like it’s time to dust off the long-dormant VS credit card. Can’t wait to see your influence there.
