Spring Cleaning with The Laundress.

I’ve been a big fan of The Laundress’s products for some time now (as an aside – if you are ever near a Le Labo, stop by and pick up their lingerie wash with The Laundress in Santal 33. It’s absolute heaven. I wear the perfume and hand wash my most delicate pieces in the detergent.) But besides the fact that the products smell amazing (+ come in the most chic packaging!), they’re also non-toxic; biodegradable…

Spring Wardrobe Refresh.

Here’s a little tip for you. Whenever I feel like I have nothing to wear (which is alarming, considering the state of my closet right now… but still seems to happen all the time) I take a peek at Nordstrom’s T.B.D. department. If you’re as crazy as I am, I’d recommend bookmarking it and checking back in on the new arrivals every week…

Helen Ficalora: Mother’s Day Giveaway. CLOSED

Out of all of my jewelry, the piece I get asked about most often is the charm necklace I wear (nearly every day) from Helen Ficalora. This necklace is really special to me, and I’ve had it for nine years now. When I first moved to New York, my best friend Nicolette and I each bought the gold chain + our first initial. The charms were, (at the time, when we were roommates and in our early twenties) a major investment for each of us…

Charm & Chain Faves (+ Discount!)

ICYMI (I feel so cool saying that, but then less cool for admitting it), earlier this week I profiled one of my good friends, Ali Galgano… the brains (and blonde) behind Charm & Chain. (Read the feature here!) You might also remember that she very generously offered up 25% off sitewide with code THESTRIPE25! It ends on Sunday, so get shopping.. it’s the perfect time to pick up something special.

Candy Shop Vintage Event.

As excited as I am to head to Hilton Head for the weekend, the one major bummer is that I am missing my friend Deirdre’s trunk show here in New York! If you are not familiar with Candy Shop Vintage, you should be. She makes my favorite elephant necklace (pictured above… I love that thing like a child) and of course Charleston Rice Beads!

Hilton Head Packing List.

You guys. I am really, really excited. Tomorrow, I’m flying down to Southern Carolina for a long weekend in Hilton Head. I’ve never been before (if you have, pleaaase leave me your suggestions in the comments!) The visitor’s bureau actually invited Jess, Hallie, Caitlin, and I down for a weekend of sightseeing, golf (we’re going to the RBC Heritage golf tournament), and…
