GLAM DAMN IT!
It's a beautiful thing for anyone who seeks out the good life when spa month and restaurant month coincide. It's an even better thing when you can experience a spa day and a gourmet dinner all in one place. Miami's top resorts have been known for having some of the nation's best spas for quite some time, but now that the foodie movement is in full force, it seems as if luxury hotels have also become the destination for epicurians seeking out some of the city's finest meals. For those of you who are addicted to enjoying life's finer pleasures and have an affinity for a good deal, August is the month to be in Miami when Miami Spa Month and Miami Spice overlap, and there are fewer places more adept at satisfying the most seasoned spa aficionados and ardent foodies than the Fontainebleau Resort on Miami Beach.
Jimmy Choo Jasmine Clutch, $1,695
The mixture of white and coral on this python skin clutch gives it a simple, classic look. We love the use of silver hardware against the warm color to give it more of an edgy appeal! If you have the money to splurge on something this fantastic, and are in need of a chic day clutch, we say hail to the Choo!
Haute off the press and coming our way this January is Jason Wu’s newest collaboration with Nordstrom. Word on the street is that this contemporary line will be in the $195-$1,700 price range. The collection will be 40 pieces consisting of shift skirts, a-line dresses, striped tops with floral skirts, and lighthearted touches to trench coats. The collection was inspired by the Mod fashion of the '60s --think Jane Birkin and Marianne Faithfull.
The 29-year-old explains his inspiration behind this collection and its character as a whole clothing line, “Instead of just doing ‘Jason Wu-for-less,’ the idea is to explore the other side of myself, I always see Jason Wu [the collection] as my aesthetic, my design sensibility. Miss Wu is my personality. [I] explore that facet of who I am- slightly more downtown, and with a more relaxed attitude.” (WWD)
Get amped up- excuse us- juiced up for these bright and bold watches ready to hit the scene. Joey Lasalla, owner and founder of Juiced Watches has created a brand of brightly colored wristwear -- just in time for summer.
Bright, bold watches are a hot trend right now, as we've seen designer after designer coming out with their own version of the popular accessory. Lasalla, however, took the idea a step further by offering customizable options. His white and multi-color non-led watches as well as his LXD illuminator watches can be made to fit your style.
The shoppable version of Pinterest has taken their company to a whole new level with their newest addition of the “buy now” tab. This little green button they have so slyly created is for the use of independent bloggers to integrate into their sites where it allows readers to purchase the products featured on the blogs without leaving their page --Fancy that!
The Fancy partnered with the Independent Fashion Bloggers Network for their launch, which will be beneficial to them as it is home to over 40,000 writers. Though most of the blogger bunch in the network are small style bloggers that use their site as a hobby and have a small readership, Taylor Davies, TechCrunch’s IFB Editor, explained that she thinks this simple addition of the shopping tab could potentially be “the next step in how we, as blog consumers, shop and purchase things we like and see” (racked).
