alexis russell // badass jewelry.








i have been spending a good amount of time looking at product and going to trade shows lately, with my focus on children's product. during these trips, it is very hard not to notice stand out women's and home lines that i come across.

after my last trip to new york, i went through the list on my phone of things (other than kids stuff) i saw that i liked. i googled alexis russell and was so happy to see this line of jewelry that was even better than i remembered.

not only is the line full of amazing geometric shaped rings, bracelets, and jewelry, but also the beyond-cool engagement type rings. the raw cut and grey diamonds are amazing and unique and probably everything i have ever wanted.

i won't lie and say an engagement ring isn't something i think about or that i don't spend time looking on the internet for. and while i have been mostly looking at estate pieces because i want something unique and because they are often much larger in size than new engagement rings (i am not saying i need a big diamond, but a big sized ring overall), one of these alexis russell rings just might fit that bill.

mara hoffman.










i feel like every year the 70s is back and this fashion week is no different. mara hoffman and joie are only two of the many collections taking on this look. these two collection share many of the same styles, but couldn't be more different. both have attributes that could have easily been found on ali mcgraw in love story, like plunging necklines made demure with turtlenecks and those knee high suede boots. mara seems to make this look more modern with her amazing, intense prints and chunky knits, while joie keeps it pretty classic, yet still sexy.

how could mixing the reproductive system, floral prints, and crewneck sweatshirts ever be a bad thing? rachel antonoff show us that it really can't be. my only hope is that under that seymour pussy sweatshirt lies a full floral jumpsuit.

snow day!


























there is nothing like being stuck at home with nothing to do and nowhere to go. nothing like going on an adventure through an empty city. walking around until your face stings and your eyelashes are frozen together. cooking without lights and cuddling with your favorite friends. there is something magical about a snow day.
