I LOVE this Fendi Peekaboo mini pocket suede handbag (available at Fendi). The Peekaboo style is one of my favorites and the reinvented bag with exterior multipurpose pockets is brilliant. The juxtaposition of the soft and luxurious suede and smooth, structured leather gives this bag a feminine, military vibe. The green leather against the sand suede with gold-finish metalware is the perfect color combination.
This small handbag has two compartments inside, separated by a stiff partition. The Peekoboo style comes with a detachable crossbody strap - I like to accessorize my handbags with straps from the Fendi Strap You collection. Of course, I gifted this Peekaboo handbag to myself!
The word "Clothing" in many languages listed down the front of this Vetements t-shirt (available at MyTheresa) and up the back is intriguing. The super oversized cotton t-shirt makes a simple statement - clothing! Tucked in high-waisted trousers or worn loose over fitted pants with chic high-heeled booties, this t-shirt says "cool girl".
I'm obsessed with these MIU MIU pink fur slip-on sandals (available at Farfetch). The printed cotton vamp dons white mohair giving these sandals a flirty, feminine vibe. I love the contemporary, feminine spirit of this brand AND have to have these sandals..
Another one of my favorites is Moschino. The brand is playful and synonymous with the bear print. The 3D-like "This Is Not A Moschino Toy" print against the pink t-shirt dress (available at Farfetch) is feminine, but with a little edge - a safety pin infected bear is kinda morbid! I love this shade of pink and am a huge fan of the ever-changing bear print. Moschino t-shirts and t-shirt dresses are high-quality. The cotton is medium weight and soft. I may or may not have a few!
I'm a sneaker kinda girl and usually opt for basic white kicks, but I'll make a exception for these Moschino logo print sneakers (available at Farfetch) . These basic white leather sneakers showcase the Moschino logo along the leather and white rubber sole. Moschino is one of the few brands that print the logo on the clothing and accessories that I will wear. I would pair these sneakers with chic sweatpants or a t-shirt dress. Maybe even with a super-feminine Zimmerman dress.
One of my first brand obsessions - Jil Sander. I've since moved on, but this Jil Sander transparent shopper tote (available at Farfetch) has sparked my interest again. This grocery bag-like tote has a front zip pocket, with the Jil Sander logo. Transparent bags are tricky - you gotta be mindful of what you display in there. I suggest a neutral cosmetic bag to hold all of your handbag essentials. I gotta have this one..
I LOVE this Fendi Peekaboo mini pocket suede handbag (available at Fendi). The Peekaboo style is one of my favorites and the reinvented bag with exterior multipurpose pockets is...
I LOVE sweaters and boots. Summer is fun and I don't mind the barely-there outfits, but the heat is exhausting. I'm happy to invite Fall/Winter and the clothing, but will probably be complaining come March..
My list this month is one of my favorites - This Dolce & Gabbana "Fashion Devotion" t-shirt (available at FARFETCH) is the perfect accessory to a chunky sweater. Paired with jeans, chic joggers or a skirt, this first layer "says a lot"! Unfortunately, it's way outta the budget, so Imma take inspiration and shop elsewhere.
I have been coveting the Chloé Rylee Ankle Boot(available at FARFETCH) since the Fall/Winter 2018 show. The rubber sole and heal are perfect for snow and the military vibe pairs perfectly with cozy sweatpants. YES, I'm obsessed with chic joggers. These boots come in two styles - the ankle boot and medium (up to your calf) boot. LOVE!
Another Chloé design - the Velvet Stiletto Ankle Boot(available at FARFETCH) is GORGEOUS! These boots are sophisticated and sheer perfection. The metallic heal, velvet design and crisscross straps the perfect juxtaposition - feminine and masculine.
When I saw these Fendi Fur Slides(available at Mytheresa), my heart skipped beat. I know, you may hate me for loving fur, but to each his own. These super-cozy, fur slides are everything I want in a sandal. The pink and brown logo detailed fur is soft and the sole provides ample cushion. I purchased this style fur slide in a different embellishment/color scheme a few seasons ago and still love them. YES, I deserve these and I bought them for myself!
I'm a Tibi fan. This brand is chic, simple, but a little different. This Tibi Cashmere V-neck Patch Pocket Oversized Pullover(available at Tibi and FARFETCH)looks so cozy. Trust me, I know Tibi - the clothing is high-quality and the knits are super comfy. I would wear this sweater over and over..
I'm not a yellow fan, but am loving this Calvin Klien Roadrunner Intarsia Reversed Seam Virgin Wool Jumper(available at FARFETCH). The Looney Tunes throwback is too fun! Pair this fun fashion sweater with chic bottoms for date night, a party or casual Friday.
I LOVE sweaters and boots. Summer is fun and I don't mind the barely-there outfits, but the heat is exhausting. I'm happy to invite Fall/Winter and the clothing, but will probably be complaining come...
I'm obsessed with Fendi Rockoko boots and impatiently wait each season for the new color schemes and unique embellished styles. There's never a season that I don't fall in in love with another pair of Rockcoco boots (or two). This sock-style boot pairs perfectly with chic joggers (my favorite) and elongates your legs with skirts and dresses. They're surprisingly comfortable and of course, high-quality.
This season, I have two pairs on my wish list, but if I have to choose, imma opt for the logo lace-up style. The signature FF motif detail and contrasting stripe along the collar give these boots a sporty vibe. I'll don these navy blue boots with stylish navy, grey and Burgundy joggers. This color scheme is available in navy blue with a red stripe or black. This color scheme and design is also available in the FF knit sneaker style. Both styles are available at Farfetch.
I recently discovered Fiorucci and love the angels print on the t-shirts and sweaters. I'm not a crop top kinda girl, but this Fiorucci green and white striped cropped t-shirt paired with the somewhat high-wasited Fiorucci black joggers is really flattering and fun (available at Intermix and revolveclothinng.com). Both don the Fiorucci name in pink (I love anything pink). I never wear black, but this styling (seen on revolveclothing.com) is sporty and cute - the perfect loungin' around outfit.
Another one of my favorite brands is Mother. The casual brand is predominantly denim and trust me, Mother jeans are amazing. The fit is perfect and for 'older' women, the high-waist style is really flattering.
These Mother no zip misfit pants are the perfect combination of camo and stripes (kinda my thing this fall/winter). You can barely see that there are stripes in this photo, but there is a blue, red and blue stripe along the sides. The pants are medium-weight and soft. There is a zip fly with button closure and elastic leg opening - love the jogger style. The fit is nice (size-up) and the color scheme is perfection. YES, I have a pair and waited for months to get them (pre-ordered). These pants are available at motherdenim.com and revolveclothing.com.
These Fendi ColibrÌ slingback pumps are gorgeous (available at Farfetch). The houndstooth pattern on the toe cap and checkered pattern on the toe, along with the Fendi hearts embroidered detail on the slingback strap and silver-tone heal are the perfect juxtaposition. There is also a pad on the slingback strap and hiking hardware, giving these high-fashion slingback pumps and sporty vibe. There is so much going on with this design and I LOVE IT!
AND, the other Fendi Rockoko boots on my list (available at mytheresa and Fendi) - these boots don the stitched Fendi name and crystal-embellished hearts. The contrasting cream hue and black and will look great with just about anything you wear this fall/winter and especially elevate your party look. I've been drooling over these boots for weeks.
I'm obsessed with Fendi Rockoko boots and impatiently wait each season for the new color schemes and unique embellished styles. There's never a season that I don't fall in in love with another pair...
I'm a little obsessed with Gucci these days. I can't afford any of it, BUT a girl can dream.. This Gucci oversized cotton t-shirt is perfect (available at Mytheresa). There is an adorable fawn print on the front and a floral print with a lady bug on the back. The green Gucci lettering is a nice contrast from the pink. This oversized t-shirt would look great with blue jeans and strappy, high-heel sandals.
Gucci's leaf-brocade lace bomber jacket (available in major department stores and Farfetch) is feminine and sporty. The striped hem, cuffs, baseball collar and chest patch say "I'm a cool girl" and the delicate lace is pretty and refined. Along side the Gucci lettering, the floral, embroidered appliqué chest patch is consistent with the collection. I like the red piping along the shoulder line and green piping down the zipper. The green, white and red stripes and red and green piping represent the Italian flag . There's a lot of detail in this design - LOVE! There are matching flower-lace jogging pants with red and green piping and striped cuffs - SO Erika Girardi.
I'm coveting these Dolce & Gabbana Amore flared jeans (available at Farfetch). I haven't worn flares in years, but love that the trend may be on the way back in. The three shades of blue denim and denim patches with red stitching give these jeans a fun, loving, 70's vibe.
I was just in Nashville and had an amazing time. I had hoped to get cowboy boots, but didn't get a chance to go shopping - probably for the best! When I saw these Fendi pink crocodile-embossed ankle boots (available at Fendi), I was happy that I missed out on the cowboy boots in Nashville. This cowboy bootie design is gorgeous. I'm obsessed with pale pink shades and this color is perfect. The low boot leg is nice, cause I'm short and the heel is the perfect height. I NEED THESE BOOTS..
I just learned that Gucci has a décor collection and I want everything! The collection is fun, glamorous and way outta my budget. There's candles, dishes, folding tables, gorgeous chairs, panel screens and cushions. I have a Toy Poodle named Teddy Bear, so of course I'm coveting this Gucci embroidered needlepoint teddy bear cushion (available at Gucci) - SO CUTE! The misspelt 'Guccy' lettering references hashtags on social media. AND it's pink (well, on one side). This Gucci décor collection is inspiring me.
Yup, another Gucci design on my 'must-have' list. This Gucci Florentia tote bag (available at Farfetch) is perfect for fall/winter travels. The red and black gingham pattern reminds me of the classic hunters flannel shirt. This is labeled a mens tote, but anyone can don this oversized, wool bag. Like many designs in this collection, there's a floral appliqué. The Florentia L'orta Di Giove slogan references Florence and part of the Boboli Gardens of Palazzo Pitti.

If you browse my blog, then you would assume that I already purchased these items (all of them). I can't help myself - by the time I curate an 'I'm Coveting..' list, everything is in my online shopping bag, waiting for me to hit 'complete order'!
I LOVE these Chloé Carlina round sunglasses in silver and powder pink (available at Mytheresa). The braided, fine gold-tone metalwork is delicate and feminine. The frames are round and a bit oversized. The pink gradient lenses are pale and won't protect your eyes from the sun - BUT they look good. I'm a HUGE fan of Chloé sunglasses. The bohemian Chloé attitude is carefree and the variety of 'free spirit' sunglass styles evoke flower child charm.
I had no intentions of buying new shoes when I went to Chloé on Madison in New York a few months ago, but you can't argue love at first site. These shoes were meant for me AND they're so comfy. The Chloé River wedge boot (available at Chloé) has a military look, but the corset-inspired lace-up vamp gives a feminine vibe. The laces are leather, so beware - these can stretch and break fairly easily. Pair these wedge boots with a t-shirt dress and the Chloé Roy double clutch handbag.
Yeah, I would go to the ends of the earth to procure a handbag - I had to engage Dutch friends in the Netherlands to get this one. This pink leather micro-bag by Fendi (available at Fendi) is super tiny and embellished with galvanized pearls. I love this Fendi handbag style and am super excited to get my first micro Peekaboo. While it's still on route, I've already made big plans for this tiny Peekaboo handbag.
Each season Fendi brings us new bag accessories - fur pom poms, mini bags (to attach to your bag) and this season, the Fendi Space Monkey (available at Fendi). This little bag accessory dons the signature Fendi print and has a leather headpiece embellished with galvanized pearls. SO CUTE! I put this on my Mother's Day wish list.. I trust my Toy Poodle is gonna come through!
James Smith slides (available at Shop Planet Blue) are simple and chic. The slip-on style comes with a leather or suede vamp and a thin sole. These fit nicely and go great with everything. I have a long road trip this summer and think these will be the perfect slide for those en-route days and site-seeing.
YUP, I have this one too. The Louis Vuitton Hot Springs backpack (available at Louis Vuitton) combines my two favorite LV Vernis leather colors - Amarante and Rose Ballerine. The backpack is small, but spacious inside AND has a pink lining. Backpacks are having a moment this season (especially mini backpacks). I was super lucky to land this bag. I'd seen it on the LV site, but it wasn't available. I casually walked into the Louis Vuitton store in New York some weeks later and there it was! That was great day, BUT the very reason why I shouldn't visit New York often. I've been selling stuff on eBay ever since, trying to make up for the financial damage I caused!

The functional bucket bag style handbag is having an extended fashion moment these last few seasons. This style has been around a long time, but as of late, is making a big comeback and gracing the arms of models and celebrities. The bucket bag is roomy and depending on the size can carry lots of day-to-night essentials. This style comes in all sizes - XS to XL. The larger styles are perfect for carrying all your airplane essentials. Here's a short list of bucket bag styles for inspiration.
The Roxy denim cage mini bucket bag by Alexander Wang (available at Farfetch) is cute, but edgy. The cage is bleached denim, as well as the denim bike chain style attachment that goes over the round top handles for closure.
Mansur Gabriel is often credited for bringing back the bucket bag (this time). The light pink shade of this leather Mansur Gabriel bucket bag (available at Mytheresa) is perfect for Spring/Summer. This bucket bag is small-medium size, has an adjustable strap and leather drawstring. It's simple, functional and chic.
Jil Sander was one of my first designer obsessions. True to the brand, the esthetic remains simple and chic. This Jil Sander white leather bucket tote (available at Farfetch) is medium sized and can hold lots of stuff. The structured bag has small top handles and inside pockets. LOVE!
I often peruse the Louis Vuitton Vintage selection on Farfetch. I can't afford anything, but a girl can dream. The Louis Vuitton Vintage fringed bucket tote is festival-chic. The small bucket bag is structured and dons the iconic Lous Vuitton print under the multicolored fringe with beads. Are you sitting down? You should - this vintage bag (so, it is preowned) costs $8,948!
The camel shade of this leather bucket bag by Mansur Gabriel (available at Mytheresa) is classic. The vegetable-tanned leather is gorgeous and the interior is the same light pink shade as the light pink style. Mansur Gabriel bags are simple, but timeless.
This MIU MIU leather bucket bag (available at NET-A-PORTER) is rectangular shaped, with waved edges. The white leather is hand painted and although MIU MIU styles usually don jewels and embellishment, this classic bag only has a little polished silver hardware - 'MIU MIU'. This bucket bag has no closure and a matching zipped pouch inside.
The functional bucket bag style handbag is having an extended fashion moment these last few seasons. This style has been around a long time, but as of late, is making a big comeback and gracing the...
Bomber jackets seem to never go out of style, but this staple jacket had a major fashion moment in 2017. I noticed a surge in mens bombers last year - no surprise, men and bomber jackets go hand-in-hand. In the 50's, this military style (bomber style) jacket made it's way from, well, men in the military to the streets. Bombers made another comeback in the 90's. In 2018, the rebellious fashion attitude has the bomber momentum going strong again.
The bomber jacket is the perfect season transitioning outerwear. Light-weight jackets and layers are suitable for the in-between season. You can pair the bomber jacket with anything - really! Casual looks, day dresses AND even more elegant looks. The bomber adds a roughness and contrast to the 'all dressed-up and goin' somewhere special look'. This urban style jacket is relaxed and evokes a 'cool' vibe.
This Spring, relaxed fit and oversized bombers with graphic logos across the back are on-trend. Yeah, you can opt for the traditional military green, camo and navy fabrics, or you can add a little intrigue as you're walking away. 'You thought I looked good from the front - wait till I turn around'! Arm patches, appliqués and embellished zipper pull tags make this long-time staple jacket modern again.
This silk Valentino bomber jacket (available at Mytheresa) is everything (really, there's a lot going on here)! I love the pale pink stripe with yellow piping along the shoulders and sleeves. The contrast against the olive green satin is perfect. The black and white ribbed trims are traditional and chic. The color combination is genius. The beaded and embroidered butterfly appliqués on the front, back and sleeves are gorgeous. Truly amazing! This reinvented bomber jacket is my favorite this season.
The collegiate varsity inspired Miu Miu appliquéd satin-shell bomber jacket (available at NET-A-PORTER) is sporty and fun. The red and white bouclé 'M' patch and glass-beaded flamingo add a playful vibe to the muted shades navy and antique-rose. This relaxed fit bomber jacket has snap buttons and ribbed trims.
The eagle appliqué on the back of this Off-White satin varsity jacket (available at Mytheresa) is all biker jacket meets bomber jacket. The snap buttons and black and white ribbed trims give this jacket a sporty vibe, while the eagle and flower reference denotes femininity and freedom.
Another one of my favorites - the Off-White camouflage bomber jacket (available at Mytheresa). I LOVE camo and have seen this print up close - it's vibrant and the high-contrast white logo across the back elevates this design. The slouchy fit feels like you're wearing your guys clothes and the O-ring zipper and durable fabrication are the epitome of the bomber jacket.
From the Thomas Maier Spring 2018 collection - this duchess-satin bomber jacket (available at NET-A-PORTER) is anything but boring. The combination of the gray, camo sleeves, and pink and red striped trims is feminine and fun. The pink flamingo appliqué is cute and girlie. There seems to be many bird references this spring.
P.E Nation is a athletic clothing brand AND this red and blue striped bomber jacket (available at Mytheresa) will definitely elevate your work-out look. It's a bit 'loud', so I'd opt for an all black ensemble underneath. The toggle zip is branded with the P.E Nation logo and the red stripes around the sleeves are giving me a race-car clothing vibe.
Bomber jackets seem to never go out of style, but this staple jacket had a major fashion moment in 2017. I noticed a surge in mens bombers last year - no surprise, men and bomber jackets go...
Pink and red are 'A MUST' on Valentine's Day. You should sneak hearts and 'love' in there too. I'm a fan of themed gift-giving and Valentine's Day is the one day of the year you can purchase pink everything and it works (I'm a HUGE fan of the color pink). Heres a carefully curated list of Valentine's Day worthy gifts for your special person..
Chloé Poppy heart-shaped sunglasses (available at Mytheresa.com) are the perfect Valentine's Day gift. Chloé is my go-to designer for sunglasses. The high-quality frames and unique designs are retro and embody the spirit of the seventies.
Dolce & Gabbana has a wide selection of 'love' inspired sneaker designs. These D&G appliqué logo heart sneakers are endearing and vibrant. The sneaker addict in your life will 'love' these. Visit Mytheresa.com and Farfetch to peruse the D&G sneaker collection.
These Anya Hindmarch shearling heart-embellished slides (available at Mytheresa.com) are the perfect Valentine's Day gift. Red, fluffy, and cozy says 'I only want the best for you'. The bright red heart against the Bordeaux rabbit fur is perfection.
I have-to-have this pink Acne Studios Clea bomber jacket (available at Mytheresa.com). I love the contrasting yellow zipper against the perfect pale pink-hued fabric. Acne Studios is one of my favorite clothing and accessory brands. This brand is high-quality - the understated pieces add color and style to your wardrobe (at least my wardrobe, cause it's all gray).
Yeah, another pair of love inspired sneakers from Dolce & Gabbana. The glitter 'love' inscription is sweet, while the contrasting pink sole and white leather give these D&G love leather sneakers a cool vibe. This style is selling out everywhere. Visit M'oda 'Operandi - there's only a few sizes left.
The green and pink sequin Guccifica headband is just fun! Everything about the Gucci collections are unique, vibrant and oh so retro. This metallic fibre blend hairband has an adjustable fit and would look great against my black hair - is anyone listening? Hint hint..
This heart-embellished sweater by Wildfox isn't available for purchase anymore, but it inspires me to wear hearts on Valentine's Day. Be fun, go pink and put on some red lipstick.. This sequin heart-embellished sweater is young and festive.
I left the best for last. Everybody wants a Victoria's Secret gift card! For Valentine's Day, opt for a 'love' inspired card. I always say gift cards are the best gift that keeps on giving - you get a gift and then get to go shopping..
Pink and red are 'A MUST' on Valentine's Day. You should sneak hearts and 'love' in there too. I'm a fan of themed gift-giving and Valentine's Day is the one day of the year you can purchase pink...
Statement sleeves are having a fashion moment. Fashion-forward ladies are doing elongated, oversized, flared, layered and bell or balloon-shaped sleeves. Statement sleeves elevate your look - even paired with simple bottoms, a statement sleeve enhances your fashion-style. AND they look great in a photo (especially hailing taxi or dancing in the street). Movement in fashion attracts attention and makes for an excellent Instagram pic.
I consider myself a fashionable person, and I follow trends intently, but I do sway on the subtle side of each fashion trend. I don't wear loud colors or outrageous shapes, and if the trend is statement sleeves, I'll opt for a muted shade and simple version of the in-the-moment style.
Acne Studios Cleo cotton turtleneck top (available at mytheresa.com) is light-weight, light-hued and has elongated frill cuffs that will hang out of your sweater or jacket. This style is simple with a little 'flare'.
This Fendi fur-embellished cotton blend sweatshirt (available at mytheresa.com) is my favorite bell-sleeve style. Fox and mink fur in the shape of flowers give this sweatshirt a playful vibe. This Fendi sweatshirt would look great with straight bottoms, or silk joggers and heels.
This bell-sleeve cotton top by See by Chloé (available at Farfetch) is feminine and chic. The three-quarter length sleeves are slightly flared, bell-shaped and ruched. This top would look great with flared jeans. See by Chloe clothing styles often have a romantic vibe - I love this brand.
I'm a HUGE sweatpants fan - with sneakers, booties or heels, I can don joggers everyday. This bell-sleeve sweater by Cyclas pairs perfectly with fitted sweatpants and sock-like booties. The two-toned gray sweater is made of silk, mohair and wool. This sweater screams my name, BUT it's sold out everywhere (insert sad face).
Statement sleeves are having a fashion moment. Fashion-forward ladies are doing elongated, oversized, flared, layered and bell or balloon-shaped sleeves. Statement sleeves elevate your look - even...
My 'I'm Coveting' post this month is my favorite so far. Typically, I'd include unattainable items that make me drool - This month, I chose clothing and accessories from my Christmas wishlist and a few things I recently purchased. I'm still in awe of the Fendi boots and Prada bag (a girls gotta dream).
I purchased this Fenty X Puma rose pink front lace hoodie (was available at Farfetch) for a night out in Vegas. It's called a hoodie, but the oversized style puts this soft, cotton sweater in the sweater dress category. I paired this hoodie with an oversized, pink MIU MIU faux shearling clutch and beige, Rockoko Fendi boots. I looked good! This hoodie is super cozy, and the front lace detail adds to an otherwise basic style. Your accessories will take this from day to dinner to the club.
I love the 'clear lense' trend. These Chloé gold-tone aviator optical glasses are my favorite. I did purchase them, but the frames were warped, so I sent them back. Unfortunately, they're super hard to get now, so I opted for a different Chloé style. Fashion frames with clear, non-prescription lenses are modern and enhance your face. I like the retro style frames, but each person is different - opt for a frame that suits you. The 'geek, hipster' style looks great on everyone. The oversized frames make you look cute and well, 'geeky'.
These boots are AMAZING! I'm a little obsessed with Fendi Rockoko fabric boots (available at Fendi). Each season this style is available in new colors and embellishments. These gray stretch fabric boots are embellished with pink and burgundy tone daisy flowers, have a striped heel, and two 'sock-style' stripes around the shaft. These boots are a statement. Surprisingly, Rockoko boots are super comfy - I can wear them for hours. I'm hoping for a new pair this season (hint hint).
This Off-White down the shoulder shirt (available at Revolve) is grungy, sexy and unique - the sleeves are super-long, with an oversized cuff embellished with round metal-tone buttons. The checkered plaid, slouchy look and tie waist bring the grunge, while the off-the-shoulder style brings the glam. I have this top and LOVE it! This Off-White top is also available in white.
The latest Fenty Puma by Rihanna is inspired by classic school uniforms. The collection is fun, sexy and rich in color. This Fenty Puma by Rihanna trapper hat is on my Christmas wishlist. The elongated flaps look warm and cozy - I'm sure this hat will keep me toasty this winter season.
I mentioned this Prada fur shopper (available at mytheresa.com) a few weeks ago. It's available in white with blue and green pompoms and rose with red pompoms. This shopper is huge and isn't structured, so you can stuff a lot of everything here. I realize white fur is not ideal, but I want it!
My 'I'm Coveting' post this month is my favorite so far. Typically, I'd include unattainable items that make me drool - This month, I chose clothing and accessories from my Christmas wishlist and a...
