in preparation for fashion week, i thought i’d post this exciting opportunity, which is open to the public and definitely one you should check out if you’re in the new york city area next week. scout la curated a special vintage collection featuring pieces designed by such american designers as bill blass, geoffrey beene, and teal traina in addition to shooting a gorgous lookbook for it. in celebration of this launch, my friend erin will be hosting an event where you’ll get the chance to check out the clothes in-person.

  • when: 9/3, 7:30-9pm
  • where: shinola new york, 177 franklin street

the app market is wholly over-saturated; nevertheless, occasionally something interesting that fills a void will break through the muck and assert itself as one to download. in my opinion, along with spring, priv is one of them. it allows you to book fairly instantaneous appointments for hair, makeup, fitness amenities and more wherever you are located. you can priv at the bar, get lash extensions at the office, host mini get-togethers with multiple services/people at a time, priv yoga sessions at sleepovers, and so on. you can also read and submit reviews on the experts leading each appointment. basically: you should download it.

i don’t know why my posts about blogger collaborations seem perpetually tinged with skepticism (jealousy? not afraid to admit that lolz), i apologize, but i’m thrilled to report that a recent partnership between andyheart.com and new york-based fine jewelry brand mirlo is a gorgeous, albeit pricey one. admittedly, i am a huge fan of ann kim’s and click over to her site regularly to immerse myself in her minimalist aesthetic; the result of the meeting of these minds is an equally-as-clean capsule collection.

though the outerwear may trick you into thinking that this is a fall/winter collection, it isn’t — these images come straight from reece hudson's pre-fall 2014 lookbook. luckily, seasons don’t really matter when it comes to handbags and jewelry, so you can probably rock these styles at any point during the year. gotta make it a worthwhile purchase, right? i mean, particularly since her most affordable bag is $295.

i chose to highlight this model because she is giving so much face but girl also knows how to highlight baublebar’s labor day sale to its utmost. indeed, it’s sale time until september 1. there are deals to be had and prices start at 50% off. shop away, friends!

this is my last “summer friday” (when us lucky corporate ducks get to scurry out of the office at 1pm, provided that all other work has been completed, which is rare but the opportunity is still presented) and though i won’t be soaking up some skin-damaging rays, i will say that i’ve leaned hard on the following items this season:

when you think pre-fall, which is this weird period of time we are currently in where mother nature can’t figure out what season it is, do you think of this collection of clothing? nope. don’t get me wrong, i love them, but all i’m saying is that yesterday was 90° and today feels like 70 and i wouldn’t be wearing a wool moto jacket.

The Insider: Sara Zucker

Sara Zucker is the girl you tried really hard to befriend on our first day of college: She has enviably tousled hair, knows where to get the best coffee in Queens, and named her style blog Farpitz—Yiddish for “all dressed up” and code for “just plain cool.” And when she’s not doling…

omg, i was interviewed…and i talk about how great wearing lipstick is but i’m not actually wearing lipstick in the main image accompanying this great article. i did choose this picture, though…because i look like a total bad-ass. aviators tend to do that.

last week, i had the ultimate pleasure of relaxing for a hot minute to thumb through the most recent issue of ny mag. it includes a mind-blowing editorial, which combines stills from classic movies with of-the-moment runway pieces. my favorite image features judy garland in the wizard of oz, 1939) wearing boots by saint laurent (2014).
