He’s handsome and built to perfection.
He has a quiet confidence.
He doesn’t complain.
He goes wherever I want to go.
What can I say, we are solemates! Ha!
Match made in heaven! But really Gucci is having a moment right now. With new Creative Director Alessandro Michele at the helm, the brand is killing it. Remember the popularity of Valentino’s Rockstud shoes and accessories last year? Well that is now the Gucci collection this year, specifically Gucci Marmont. Gucci bags, belts, loafers and fur lined mules are on the wish list of the fashion obsessed. Of course this is not Gucci’s first spotlight, the fashion house has had a stronghold since 1921, just like other ultra famous labels such as Chanel (1910) and Louis Vuitton (1854).
If you have noticed, I primarily invest in designer accessories and then shop for clothing pieces at a somewhat lower price point. Clothing trends fade much faster than say a handbag, sunglasses or belt. Most accessories are worn everyday as well so you are getting a much better price per wear, if you care about that…personally I use that thought process to justify my purchases!
I predict you will be seeing quite a bit of these babies in the near future…it was love at first sight!

I recently discovered a new app for my iPad, Paper by 53. Embarrassingly, I stayed up until 2am playing with it the first night I downloaded it. Since I was also creating a wish list on Pinterest, I decided to just sketch a few of my favorite things. I’m a Capricorn, therefore a December baby, so the Holiday season has always been double the excitement for me. See how accurate I am by going here or any of the links below each sketch.
