As sale season comes to a close, I decided to make one last pass (and risk loosing an arm) to see if I could find some lingering steals. Level 9 at Saks is currently a mecca for the true bargain hunter. With whimsical Chloe dresses being snapped up for 80% off and once out of budget Balenciaga and Celine pieces now attainable, I decided to have one final look early Saturday morning.
Once in the dressing room with a rack full of goodies, I heard a knock at my door. “You’re not going to believe what I found” said my sales girl with the excitement of a kid on Christmas morning. I opened the door and there hung the buttery goodness of a YSL leather jacket. I knew it would fit like a glove as I’d tried the black leather version many times before, but never wanted to pull the trigger due to the hefty price tag.
The white leather popped against black zippers and the distressed details gave the jacket that street chic vibe of a Golden Goose sneaker reincarnated in a fabulous leather jacket. I was sold.

After taking some much needed time off and now calling NYC home for 3 years, sometimes all I crave is simplicity. There was something so relaxing about living out of one carry on suitcase for 7 days. Almost made me want to do a huge closet purge….almost 🙂
Recently, I’ve been building my accessory collection. Basic denim, clean pumps and a crisp white shirt are instantly elevated with a few key pieces. A pop of color on the nail, tortoise sunnies and golden details pull everything together.
Denim: Citizens of Humanity (love this color and this color), Top: Vince (similar here), Belt: Hermes, Sunnies: Celine, Bag: Sophie Hulme, Shoes: Christian Louboutin (similar here), Nails: Chanel, Ring: Jennifer Fisher.
