“You’ve been wearing a lot of white lately, you’re gonna love our gift,” my friend Gustavo squealed as he handed me my present when I celebrated my birthday dinner at the Monarch Room last month. He was right. This gorgeous ivory laser-cut leather “Daphne” clutch by Jason Wu is the most perfect thing ever. It’s slightly roomier than most clutches; it also functions as a chic day piece! I love a good bag that can fit way more than a credit card and a lip gloss tube.

Have you seen the new Gucci fall winter 2014 menswear collection? Watch the full-length fashion show below. I’m living for the skinny trousers, the boxy, jewel-neck sweaters (my favourite is the dark teal shearling number on look #4), the ultra lux caramel brown leather jacket with a fur collar (look 20) and of course, the textured beige coat (look #11). I also love the idea of using a really light gray turtleneck as the base layering piece. Clean, chic and polished.

Are you ready for resort? I am! I really am! I think it’s funny how I used to be a huge fan of the winter season. Before moving to New York City almost two years ago, I’ve always envisioned “winter” (from my previous travels, at least) as this gorgeous, glamorous, time of the year when it’s snowing every day and all there is to do is to go around town in gorgeous furs and drink hot tea in front of the fireplace wearing layers and layers of four-ply cashmere. Little did I know it’s not really like that and I would end up miserable in my apartment FOR DAYS AT A TIME because it’s too damn cold to do anything remotely human outside. Don’t get me wrong — I’d rather be cold any time than deal with the heat. It’s no secret that I sweat like a whore in church and it’s not a good lewk. But seriously, the cold temperatures are paralyzing me. I’ve lost all willpower to haul my ass out of the couch.
Enough about the weather. I know there’s a ton of sales going on but I’m not gonna spend a single cent of my hard-earned money towards old merchandise. I did my fall/winter shopping before Thanksgiving and that was the end of my expenditures towards fall. I’m thrilled that new things are slowly trickling in at the stores, especially the resort and pre-collections. FINALLY!
I bought a pair of See by Chloe sandals on Shopbop the other day. I know, I know. Metal shoe trimmings are not going anywhere! I’m going somewhere warm next week and I can’t wait to rock these out. I think this is a terrific addition to my closet.
