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.

Stone Cold Fox: Summer Whites

      It’s finally summer and high time to bring out all the deliciously delicate silk and linen that’s been hidden away at the back of my closet since last September. Hallelujah. Come the first of June I always begin to itch for more sunshine (Vitamin D deficiency or no?) and always start to pencil in long summer nights out, wearing the sexier pieces in my closet. Striking a balance between looking good and feeling comfortable is easy enough so long as I rely on a summer skin secret my mom shared long ago: When you’re getting dressed and it’s dripping-humid-mid-summer-in-Georgia-hot out: Show off one feature, play down the rest. Off the shoulder dress and minimal sandals. Long sleeve, leg-baring silk dress and killer heels. Simple silk top and jet black, short, short leather shorts. Lightweight sweater and flirty eyelash shorts. The same works for my makeup routine: I’ll throw on a strong red lip or go for smoky eyes or fill in thick, Hepburnesque brows, but never all together. Choose the best. Save the …

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.

Tvachia Leather Co: Give + Get Giveaway

This season I’m excited to be collaborating with local friends Tvachia Leather Co. to share their new gorgeous collection and to give away two of their beautiful, drum-dyed bags.
