I am ecstatic it's back. And with a vengeance.

My navy velvet booties cannot wait to make an appearance this season. I have no doubt they will be my 4-days-a-week go to.

With all the delicious velvet varieties out there, I feel the need to add a few more to my shoe game. How about velvet sneakers?

This rich claret sneaker by Gianvito Rossi is made from plush velvet. Trimmed in leather, it provides comfort while making a statement at the same time. Pair with cargo skinnies and a tee or black cropped pants and a sweater. In fact, you may want to wear them with everything!

oneearringtrendThe one earring trend continues to woo me. I just like it. A lot.

And this earring is quite unique.

The sculpted Sansoeurs pieces are inspired by the shape of the human body. The "G" earring, cast from 18-karat gold, loops through your piercing until the shimmering diamond sits as a stud at the lobe. 

A fresh twist on the typical.

Oh the adventures to be had in this dress!

As much as I have a thing for white dresses, so do I with prints!

Enter: Marimekko.

Brought back from the 70s, the Kirjo print is a certain showstopper. Founded by Armi Ratia in 1961, Marimekko is a play on words — an anagram of Armi's first name and 'mekko' which means dress in Finnish. Marimekko's use of print and color is world-renowned for its forward-thinking aesthetic. 

I am captivated by this dress. For more reasons than one, as I will be living in long dresses all summer to shield my veins from the sun due to my EVLT and sclerotherapy sessions. As bad as my timing is, the experience thus far has been awesome, and hey, I will look cute (during the process and after)!

If you didn't get into sneakers last year (or the two years prior), here is your chance. 

With so many cool styles to choose from, you are sure to find something to delight! For me, it's Valentino's open sneakers with luxe detail. Crafted from smooth white leather and featuring a single metallic pink strip, in addition to those signature pyramid Rockstuds at the heel, these sneakers are in a category to themselves. As for color ways, there are many to choose from. Oh, the endless wardrobe pairings!

With the craziness of my schedule, I'd end up wearing these on the daily.

Over the moon for coils.

This style earring has been out for years. However, I am just coming around to it. As predicted, minimal floats my boat.

Thanks to Maria Black, there are so many beautiful choices, in a variety of finishes. This Danish-Irish designer launched her first collection “MBJ” in 2010 built on ambition and passion for precious metals and a fashion-forward approach to conceptual jewelry design. Maria continuously innovates the perception of body adornment in a contemporary prêt-a-porter approach.

I am loving these delicate and effortlessly cool 18-karat gold Lila Twirl earrings. They are handcrafted to curve around the lobe. And the 0.056-carats of diamonds sparkle in the light beautifully!
