Favorite F/W 2014
Men’s Accessories


Valentino white sneakers. I wish they were available right now because they were my favorite sneakers from the men’s fall collections and would be super chic for the summer as well.


Lanvin sneakers with zipper closure. Another investment I will definitely have to make next fall.


Lanvin printed backpack and black python briefcase/clutch hybrid.


Prada camera bag and red shoes.


Louis Vuitton hiking boots and silver duffel (a.k.a. the hottest bag to shoot for an editorial this season).


Bottega Veneta waistbag and Dries Van Noten sneakers with python accent.


Givenchy white gym bag/backpack and leather hi-tops.

Shop At “O Mercado”:
A Brazilian Corner At Macy’s

From this week until July 15, you can get your fix of Brazil at Macy’s new curated shop “O Mercado: the Market at Macy’s”, which will feature a selection of approximately 100 exclusive items both inspired by and made in Brazil, ranging from apparel to beauty products to home goods, and available in 300 stores throughout the United States.

In addition to “O Mercado,” Macy’s has also partnered with Brazilian designers such as Isabela Capeto, Marcelo Rosenbaum, Neon, and Calvin Klein’s Francisco Costa, to create unique merchandise that will begin appearing in select stores and online starting in May, when the retailer will also be launching its new installation “Brasil: A Magical Journey”.

Macy’s will be donating 10 percent of the sale price of every product sold within “O Mercado” to The Nature Conservancy in an effort to help raise funds to protect the Brazilian Amazon Rainforest. If you happen to stop by the store, make sure to pick up something (I love the color bracelets pictured above developed by Live Worldly for the store).
