Sustainable Jewelry Sharing: Rocksbox Subscription

You know those girls with a seemingly endless rotation of gorgeous new jewelry? The sort of stuff that’s perfectly paired together, fluidly shifting through each season? Yes you do, because starting now that girl is y-o-u, and m-e too. And if y-o-u know m-e, you’ve already guessed that the whole bit is going to be tailored to your tastes, sustainably minded, a great deal, and sprinkled with surprises. Long love story short: Rocksbox, a San Francisco-based startup, sends tailored boxes of designer jewelry with the option to borrow, buy, or swap out a set as often as you’d like. Pieces are from a stable of more than thirty established and indie designers (folks like Loren Hope, Gorjana, CC Skye, Jenny Bird, Wanderlust + Co, Vanessa Mooney, and House of Harlow). Each box includes three luxury pieces, hand-picked based on a quick style profile you fill in, along with whatever you wishlist on their site and like on the Rocksbox Instagram. I’d say the stylists were right on the mark based on my answers: I like …

Elizabeth Suzann Silk & Sevilla Smith Shoes

     I can’t go a few days of wearing these without someone asking who made these beautiful shoes by Sevilla Smith, so I’d like to share a little review: Know that each pair is made according to your exact specifications, from leather type to width to the occasional Midas touch. When these flats arrive they should feel very tight for the first couple of wears, but won’t leave a single blister — scout’s honor. Give them two days to loosen up and they’ll melt into the softest, buttery leather socks that have ever adorned your sweet feet. Since they’re made-to-order it will take around two to four weeks for them to arrive at your doorstep — it’s worth the wait. Every pair arrives with its own little hand-stamped shoe bag. There’s also a sling-back style as well as a lace-up ankle boot. Unless she’s on the road, Faye Sevilla Smith’s shoes are hand-hammered within ringing distance of The Liberty Bell in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Sevilla Smith ‘The Sandy’ D’Orsay Flat in black pebble grain leather …

Black and Blue: Cuyana Silk Dress and Loeffler Luz Sandals

When hunting for closet staples I tend to agonize over nice dresses and nice shoes. Both are investment pieces and rightfully so – the best pieces in your closet should especially be meant to last – worn in and worn well, season over season. I’ve landed on two keepers between Cuyana, the San Francisco-based lean closet brand started by two friends, and Loeffler Randall, the shoe company founded by a husband and wife who started designing the elegant, effortless shoes they couldn’t find elsewhere.

Fireside Chat: A State of the Closet Update & How to Inventory Your Clothes

Have you ever tracked your closet? This weekend I audited all of last year’s clothing purchases, and in the process I realized some really interesting things about my shopping habits in the year that followed the Nothing New Challenge. The results make up this cozy lil’ fireside chat and subsequent outfit – what I’m wearing makes up a few of my most worn items of the year. Other favorites included a trusty Patagonia better sweater, Rocksbox jewels, and everything Everlane. To start, I pulled every new piece of clothing into a spreadsheet with rows for each month, as well as columns for product name, cost, retailer; whether the item broke, was returned, sold, or donated; and whether I wore the item every two weeks, once a week, or less than five total times. My least-worn items were from many different retailers but had a few things in common: most were on clearance or were purchased without knowing detailed fit information, while others were for very specific occasions: swimming, fancy parties, running, getting married. Generally speaking, …

Fall/Winter Wardrobe: Living in…

Earlier this week on a visit to North Georgia I went to sleep with a bedroom window open and woke up to find the season’s first frost had settled overnight. I couldn’t help but jump out of bed and scurry around the crisp grass, gulping up big deep breaths that fogged up every exhale. I love everything about fall, from brisk morning walks over scalding coffee and crunching leaves in riding boots, to long campfire nights spent over red wine and under big woolly blankets.
