Weekend Update

Happy Friday everyone!

1. Sharing some last minute items that arrived that have worked out for me from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, which ends Sunday (you can see my original recommendations post here).

Nordstrom

Roberto Cavalli stretch jersey dress ($600) – Okay I haven’t exactly tried this on yet, but it looked amazing on my salesperson who kindly modeled it and it’s a total “French Riviera bombshell” dress. I bought a size larger than I normally do to be safe and figure I owe a pretty dress to my husband after all these pregnant tents I’ve been exclusively wearing.

Jean Paul Gaultier ruched dress ($300) – Same story as the dress above, but I like this one a wee bit less as I have so many little black dresses already. I will probably keep only one.

TOMS Boucle slip on ($53) – I like that these are more sturdy than the regular TOMS, and the boucle pattern makes them easy to wear through fall and winter as well. Not the most beautiful shoe out there but super duper comfortable!

Cole Haan “Zero Grand” sneaker ($130) – I mentioned these before, I think they’re really light and great as a casual city tourist shoe. The gray version is really cool and the version I bought (I originally had the black, and decided to exchange for gray!).

BABYBEARSHOP Cheeky Baby Butter ($24) – I ordered this for baby, but half the jar has been used up on myself and Mr. Feather because it works so well. The weather’s been crazy and we’ve both been suffering from dry skin. Restocking on another jar for my actual future baby.

Wang

2. You may have already heard the breaking news that Alexander Wang is out at Balenciaga. The NY Times has a nice writeup from Vanessa Friedman about the strategy behind the hiring, and perhaps parting ways, with Wang. There’ll probably be some more in depth pieces coming later. Continue Reading

Weekend Update

In the past month or so, I’ve come across some interesting articles about a brand I’ve always admired, though haven’t purchased from lately – Prada. So I thought I’d make this Weekend Update a bit Prada themed, as I’d…

My Biggest Travel Mistakes

I’m very, very near full term now, and one of the things I’m looking forward to after giving birth is traveling again. I pretty much stopped traveling once I reached my third trimester, and I’ve been an insufferable whiner about it.…

Cost Per Wear: Handbag Edition

Continuing on my cost per wear series, today I’d like to share some of my best and worst cost per wears in the category of….handbags.  Yes…I have a lot of bags. They’re a terrible addiction for me. But honestly,…
