WHEN A GIRL GOT BIG EYES...



WEDNESDAY.  Not that Palermo's eyes are needsay "big," but her proclaimed adoration for La Mer eye cremes (and products in general) in her and Johannes' campaign for the brand led me to reevaluate my own beauty pantry. The soft tissues around our eyes are one of the first parts to age, I don't need to remind you. But when you have large Bambi eyes ... the kind that don't shut all the way when you're in deep sleep or the kind that beg you perfect the art of smizing for photos... a good serum or eye creme is a sound reason you might want to drop a good penny. And if you don't think my eyes justify this label, then I've done my job proper. Regardless, to the nearest La Mer counter! More details on Olivia's website, here.

010415.



SUNDAY. The winter uniform has been on the top-heavy side, matched back with skinny jeans and ankle boots. This faux suede and fur vest goes with just about anything -- a lifeboat for these chilly days, actually. I'm in otherwise standard clothing, meaning oversized sweaters and a trusty cigarette pant.

HAPPY CHRISTMAS.

Tote: Clare Vivier | Suitcase: REVO

WEDNESDAY. Throwing all my gifts, long johns, and Christmas dress into my travel essentials for holiday with Grandmother just across the sound. In perfect greys, of course.

LBD via SABOSKIRT.

Dress: Paragon, Saboskirt | Fur: vintage | Boots: Rag and Bone

FRIDAY. Dressing for holiday parties while it's cold out is always a chore. This new LBD of mine from Sabo Skirt is such an unexpected Christmas-with-friends piece because of its winter-appropriate turtleneck in combination with its short, asymmetrical hemline. Throw on a pair of tights and a glam fur coat and you're set for glasses upon glasses of holiday cheer, no?

CURRENT CRAVINGS | Christmas ed. 2014.



SUNDAY. This Christmas, I'm kind of noticing important elements of ownership missing from my life and so will try to fill it with this wishlist. EVERLANE BLOUSES have opened my eyes to a new direction of clothing creation. Good basics can be found while supporting local job creation and careful production, like this every day workout, layering, and pj tank here or this silk button-down, here. As for a LONG WALLET, I'm so indecisive about a structured wallet here versus a slouchy leather wallet here. Thoughts? FOOT THONGS for dance and barre, here. Every traveler's necessity for a GLOBAL ADAPTER, here. And any branch of water color and watch, in black, surprise surprise.
