I bought this DVF purse on Gilt last year and it’s still one of my favorites. (I don’t feature it often here, though. I usually opt for a purse I can put my camera in after taking photos.) It’s now available online at Saks Off Fifth and I strongly recommend it if you’re in the market for a small bag. It fits a card case, an iPhone, beauty essentials, and a bulky set of keys with room to spare. Besides, the bright red is pretty fun. (My dress is no longer available, but this one is similar.)
I spent Labor Day weekend visiting my parents in Northern Wisconsin and took a detour past my childhood home. No one has purchased the house yet. My hometown is pretty economically depressed and buyers are more interested in an open concept home—not exactly a strength of a Victorian.
Finally purchased NARS’ “orgasm” blush after hearing great things about it for years. With sheer, buildable coverage, it’s just as good as everyone says. I also bought a charcoal mask that I’m thrilled with. It didn’t do much the first couple of times, but I woke up with noticeably softer skin and clearer pores after night three.
I bought my first fall item: this gorgeous floral skirt by Ted Baker. The quality is impeccable and it even has a small crinoline to keep the bottom full. It’s still a little too warm to wear it, but it makes the approaching cool weather easier to tolerate.
