Time For Some New-Year Excitement


Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you all had a fun and relaxing break.  Since it feels like we’re maybe sorta inching toward a new reality with room for cute clothes in it (here’s hoping), I’m looking to some more exciting things to zhuzh up the old wardrobe. Take this chic faux fur coat that truly looks like something Françoise Hardy would have worn riding her motorcycle on a cold Parisian day (and it’s now on 51% off — even better!). And let’s definitely not forget that the 25% off Ten Thousand Things deal that ends at midnight EST tonight.


How about this pretty necklace that looks like an expensive diamond and emerald piece, but is actually only $30?

Here’s an easy slip dress (on sale!) with a bit more shape than your average one. You can layer it up now with big sweaters, tights and boots, and pull it out when the warm weather hits, to wear with nothing but some favorite jewelry and bare sandals.

I’m feeling big cocktail rings right now, and this affordable number featuring a big slab of malachite is just the thing to sate my craving.

I love the sweet beading on this otherwise simple blouse. Adds a little something-something while still remaining day-time quiet.

I recently treated myself to a Gucci bum bag like this but with brown straps (I used to have this exact one and sold it because what was I thinking?!) I like it because it lays pretty flat on the body so you can wear it around your waist or chest under a coat, and it holds just enough for running around. Plus, I got mine authenticated by the experts at Bagaholic 101 who couldn’t have been more helpful, not to mention so, so nice.

Because I really want to venture out of my usual jeans territory, I’m still crushing on Nili Lotan’s cool pleated trousers (also on sale!),  that would work perfectly with everyday tees and boots.Nothing like a chic pair of shades like these Pradas to take a sunny winter day someplace a bit more fabulous. And what’s even more fab is that they’re now 30% off.

I’ve been dreaming of fair isle sweaters lately and this one by Frame has a grown-up palette and nice fitted silhouette which I am thinking is extra good for Zoom life.And my eye went right to these Cuban boot/menswear Oxford hybrid because I have absolutely nothing like them, and how good would they look with those Nili pants?

  1. Happy New Year! Do you happen to know what boots all of the models wear in the Nili Lotan ads? (The low cowboy boots?). Thanks.

  2. I have had that exact belt bag for probably 15 years now. It felt like a ridiculously splurgy impulse purchase at the time, but has actually been one of my most used pieces ever. And the belt length is very forgiving, thank god!

  3. We are truly honored to have assisted such a legend. Thank you very much, Andrea, and the best of health to you and your loved ones this 2021!

    P.S. We, on the other hand, had been looking for the perfect lapis lazuli chunky pendant! Malachite could work too!

    1. Aw — you are too sweet. I will never purchase a used designer bag again without you! Happy New Year! p.s. check out Ten Thousand Things for the lapis! xx
