Hi, Sara! I know I'm a little early for Tuesday, but I am in LOVE with Barbara Bui's suede "Air" bag. However, I'm a student sadly lacking $1000. Any way you can find me a cheaper, similar bag?

admittedly, it was difficult to find an appropriate replacement at a lower price point — them’s the breaks when it comes to luxury design — but i was able to gather a handful of styles featuring similar front flap and dual handle features.

styles shown: barbara bui, knights and roses, marc by marc jacobs, cooperative

Hi ! Would you happen to know if Nars lipsticks are fragrance free? Thank you <3

i’m inclined to say “no” but since i do not work in product development, i cannot fully assist you with this question. please reach out to nars’ customer care department as they are far more well-versed than i am regarding the ingredients in our products.

How do you feel about dansko clogs? A lot of art students at my university have recently started to wear them, in some really creative and I think, hip ways.

i don’t have many feelings but since they’ve been around for what seems like forever, they’ve become a classic for those seeking comfortable footwear and more clog styles have been coming out including mary jane-like heels and booties, which i quite enjoy.

From where did you receive your certification in conservation, records management, and archival studies? Sounds so awesome! You're an inspiration.

living on long island, i was able to commute to queens college’s school of library and information studiesmy choice to enroll in grad school was a spur-of-the-moment one as major life changes tend to be; i crammed the application process into two weeks so there wasn’t much time to think/research/move if there was even an option. luckily, i loved it and wouldn’t have altered the plan if i had the option to do it over again.

Hello Sara! I'm in need of a backpack that is inexpensive, but has quiet some room. What do you recommend?

image

i’m not sure what your definition of “inexpensive” is since everyone leans on a different budget but i sought out backpack styles priced below the $50 mark just in case. hopefully, you like at least one of them! they look hella spacious.

Okay but where can I get dominique from the audacious collection? I know it's Barney's exclusive but it's not online ahhaha sorry if this is annoying I am just in love with these lil babies!

i wanted to point you in the direction of narscosmetics.com where the collection is also sold but, alas, ‘dominique’ is also unavailable there. with that in mind, i would recommend you call a nars boutique or individual barneys location to inquire about stock; if it is still sold out, ask when it’ll be replenished and put yourself on a wait list.

it's q&a tuesday -- again.

here we are again! you may/not know it but q&a tuesday is back. it’ll never leave you again — unless life takes over for one reason or another, of course. with that in mind, feel free to submit all of your burning/itching/invasive questions or check past ones.

i’m always on the look-out for innovative independent design, particularly when it comes to accessories, so my eyes opened a little wider when i read about rillrill. the portland-based line is all about geometric shapes and while there’s not much info to be found about its creator katie freedle, your thirst for something new and different will definitely be quenched with her latest lookbook.

regarding the beauty look backstage at the 3.1 phillip lim spring 2015 runway show, lead artist francelle daly expounded, “there is a lot of see-through transparency and airiness to the collection – I wanted that to come through in the makeup. my inspiration is sensuality; the way the morning light hits you as you wake up in your bedroom, with sensual skin beaming with rays of light.” to do so, she highlighted the cheek bones, high planes of the face, and bridge of the nose to accentuate and bring out an inner glow using a new product set to launch in january (stay tuned!).

one label that has been continually growing since its conception is veronica beard, created by the veronicas beard in 2010. (yes, they are both named veronica beard. it still blows my mind.) anyway, spring 2015 was all about “graceful confidence and fierce femininity” with a delicate balance of neon pink, railroad stripe cotton and lace tailored into skimming silhouettes with tomboy jackets thrown over. tiger prints and palm garden silks call back to the ‘60s. according to the ladies, their muse’s “devil-may-care attitude keeps her living in the moment with her eyes on the horizon.”
