I love coming across little gems such as Meredith Wendell on the internet. I was not familiar with the designer/brand but I happened to see some amazing handbags featured on a particular website. I immediately began to do my research on Meredith Wendell and instantly fell in love. With spring lines being placed in the stores and the warmer temps being a few months away I was plotting on how I could get my hand on one of these bags from the 2013 cruise collection.

“Meredith Wendell, founded in 2008 by designers Meredith and Wendell German, is a New York based resort-inspired accessories brand, combining unique color and sporty American style.

The creative influence of Meredith Wendell stems from Meredith’s childhood. Raised by her father and grandparents in and around the vibrant Dorothy Draper designed interiors of West Virginia’s Greenbrier Hotel, Meredith was exposed to a variety of design aesthetics, personalities and generations.

This aesthetic has been captured during their collaborations with photographers Frederike Helwig and Chris Brooks and stylist Beth Fenton, shooting seasonal look-books at The Greenbrier, their apartment and Chapel Beach Club. With the inception of her own company, Meredith has drawn on her colorful background, always keeping in mind the value of her family heritage.

Meredith Wendell is sold in boutiques world wide and is featured regularly in domestic and international publications ranging from Vogue to the Wall Street Journal Magazine.” Source

I love finding refreshing lines such as Meredith Wendell. I was immediately drawn in to this collection by the bright and vibrant colors. Of course in the spring and summer you want to go bold with everything and that is exactly what you will get with Meredith Wendell handbags. The colors are eye-catching and the style of bags are very versatile. I also love the color blocking. This trend is still going strong and with bags like these, it will continue to make a huge statement. Check out more options below!


Isn’t she lovely? The Dice Kayek Pleated Bow Panel Skirt is definitely something to marvel over. This skirt is also perfect for the holiday season. The metallic brown wool blend skirt has a dramatic bow detail that will surely be the talk of the evening. The skirt is almost like a skater style and stops right above the knee. I would pair this with fitted black turtleneck top, black opaque tights, and leather booties. I would let the skirt be the center piece so everything else would be kept simple. The skirt retails for $624 and I will be admiring from a far.



The Theory about Theory: Source

“1. Theory is a company, a concept, a philosophy, an aesthetic, a style, and a product 2. Theory is a phenomenon that spun out of great fitting pants 3. Theory is a brand that doesn’t look to the future – Theory creates the future 4. Theory is Passion, People, Product, and Profitability 5. Theory is a dynamic entrepreneurial spirit and attitude that is shared by our employees, our  partners and our consumers 6. Ask our customers about their favorite fitting pants, the perfect shirt, the jacket they throw on over everything…they’ll tell you “It’s Theory.”

Theory is a brand that has clean lines and classic cuts. Their pieces are definitely understated, but make a dramatic impact, especially if you like classic looks. One thing that I love about Theory pieces is that they are great for creating more masculine looks that still keeps your femininity. If you love clean lines, classic cuts, then Theory is a brand that you will love.

Celebrities like Tika Sumpter, Rocsi, and Angela Simmons have been spotted in these EXTREME Olcay Gulsen pumps. Yes they are extreme with a 7″ heel. The shoe is simply goregous, but I am not sure how practical they are. I can see myself walking from my front door to my car, driving to my destination, taking a few pictures and having a seat the ENTIRE night. It seems like the heels are getting more and more extreme. I used to be afraid to wear anything over 3inches, but now it is hard to wear anything under 4-inches. I am not sure if these shoes will affect  your health/body in the future (they most likely will) but we can worry about that later right? Right now we need between $600-$1,100 for these babies. The python is the most expensive because of the material. They also come in yellow, orange, and nude.

Would you rock these extreme heels from Olcay Gulsen?
