What a month. I don’t know how February went by so quickly, but I’m glad we’re getting closer to Spring. This month’s favorite things round-up is one of my favorites so far, simply because I feel so strongly about each thing featured here. True love. Lots of jewelry (natch) two beauty products that are saving my life right now, a giant shoe crush, and the collab I am dying over!!! What were your fave things this month?
For more on why these were my faves…
DVF Loves Roxy might be one of my favorite collaborations in a long time. I’ve been such a huge fan of both brands for so long. I had a chance to pop by the launch event earlier this week and was impressed by the quality of the product – and the fact that the prints are very recognizably DVF.
I never quite understood why fanatics rave so much about Clarins’ Beauty Flash Balm. Then I tried it and saw for myself. Put it on after washing your face + moisturizing (right before makeup) and voila – instant radiance. I save it for days when my skin needs a special boost… it does not let me down.
I’ve been a fan of Ariel Gordon for ages and was so excited that we did a designer series with her over at BaubleBar! Tiny knots, signet rings… love it all.
These cuffs by Caliber are classic and cool. But the concept behind the brand is what is really awesome/amazing. They are made from recycled bullets + confiscated guns which is kind of cool, and proceeds fund gun buyback programs. You can choose from steel or brass, and prices range from $150 (minimalist cuff) to $1,275 (for a bracelet that contains eight diamonds.)
Lulu Frost’s 100 Years Collection is the stuff that (my) dreams are made of. The pieces are made from vintage parts that came from the 1860’s-1960’s (hence the name, 100 Years) and are all one of a kind. This necklace is just a little teaser.. the rest of the pieces are just as good!
I’m completely obsessed with these Rebecca Minkoff heels. If you buy one pair of shoes this season, these might have to be it. The wedge makes them super comfortable, but the metallic/nude combo makes them a) go with everything and b) super on-trend! I hope they are still in stock when my shopping ban ends!
This serum by Nuxe is a new favorite product. I’ve been burning the candle at both ends this month between work, the blog, and (attempts at) having a life… but no one can tell the lack of sleep thanks to this. It smells slightly like roses, and leaves skin dewy + radiant. A must-try, for sure.
That necklace by Lulu Frost is so beautiful! Nuxe products are great!
Those Caliber cuffs are such an amazing idea. Also I MUST try that Clarins’ Balm…my skin always looses its luster in winter!
omgsh in LOVE with those RM sandals… they’re perfect!
& Pretty Things
Those Caliber cuffs are such an inspiring design — and I’m in love with those Rebecca Minkoff wedges, I featured a similar ShoeMint pair on a roundup of wedges I did today — they’re the perfect spring shoe!
Those wedges are beyond perfect – and seriously loving those signet rings…going to check them out now! 🙂
Needing that Clarins balm, STAT! Loving those wedges, too. Happy Weekend! xx
I love those Rebecca Minkoff wedges–you HAVE to buy them (if only so the rest of us can see how perfectly you style them!). Also, I’m obsessed with Ariel Gordon, so I’m thrilled about this collab!
I love DVF for Roxy, but unfortunately here in Italy isn’t available 🙁 tooo bad!
Fashion & DIYs
Just an FYI. I feel in love with those RM wedges too and bought them last week. When they arrived they looked cheap and the quality was definitely not worth the $325. So disappointing!
Those heels are perfection and I also love Nuxe products! Have you ever tried their dry oil with bronzer? it makes your skin look beautiful especially during the summer!
i’ve been obsessing over those RM heels as well! might have to pull the trigger on that one…
Those RM wedges are on my spring wish list as well – they are too perfect! Love the Ariel Gordon knot and signet rings, think I’m going to have to get one in rose gold!
It should be Feb 2013*! 😉
good catch… running on serious lack of sleep lately!
I am sooo jealous that you went to the DVF Loves Roxy launch. That sounds like heaven. All of the pieces I have seen are great! One of these suits is definitely on the top of my “next purchases” list.
I am obsessed with that suit. I just went on vacation and wish this collabo had come out beforehand. Definitely a summer must.
I am so awed by a company that thought to recycle bullets and give the proceeds to gun buyback programs. Thank you so much for pointing that out! Happy weekend!!
Those bracelets are so cool, and what a great cause!
Oh gosh I may need that Clarins!! And I am so excited about the DVF Roxy Collab! Yahoo! Happy weekend, lovey!
Such wonderful picks!! I love those wedges. The metallic mixed with neutral leather is spot on!
I am obsessed with DVF loves Roxy! I’ve been looking at the collection all day and pretending there is not snow out the window. 😉
LOVING the DVF & Roxy collab!
Everything from Clarins works really well, I’ve never been disappointed by a product, now I want to try that balm!
Yes! The Roxy/DVF collab is amazing and what all collabs should strive to be like.
