November 2017 Favorites

Thursday, December 14, 2017

         I am in the process of putting up Christmas decorations and infusing my room with the scent of Bath and Body's Winter Candy Apple candle, but I couldn't fully embrace the holiday season until I posted my November Favorites.  Last month I took a break from my blog and social media, and right now I am trying my best to catch up and create new content for all of you.  My first task on my to-do list was to work on this post.  So, even if we are half way through December, here are the items I loved in the month of November.  

         Last month, I was saddened to hear about Azzedine Alaïa's death.  He was a couturier who stayed true to his beliefs and designed with his intuition.  With that said, I feel honored to own a piece he designed.  I wore these heels in my outfit post, Woman Warrior, and I recently wore them when I attended Vogue's Forces of Fashion Conference in October.  These heels command attention and keep my shoulders high as I strut, and best of all . . . they are incredibly comfortable!

          During my last trip to New York, I also managed to fit in a bit of shopping.  I visited the Grinnell Designs showroom and I purchased all of these beautiful gems.  Most of them are vintage Escada pieces which makes them even more special to me because you all know how much I love vintage items!

         My last favorite for the month of November is an item I have been wanting for years.  I first saw this Mark Cross purse on Polyvore as I browsed through many pages of box clutches.  It was so sleek, classic, and just beautiful.  However, the price tag was not so beautiful.  Recently, when I saw this purse on sale at Nordstrom (because they will no longer be selling the brand online or in stores) and discovered that I could receive an extra discount, I decided to take the plunge and add it to my collection.  Of all the purses and clutches I have ever owned, this one is by far my favorite because it's timeless.  I can see myself carrying this purse even when I am ninety years old.  There's a reason why these Mark Cross purses have been around since 1845 and are still a relevant luxury brand in the fashion industry.

          Now that I've shown you what I loved last month, I am excited to share with you the goodies I am currently loving!  But . . . you'll just have to wait until my December Favorites post hits Elizabeth, Marie, and Me.  Hope you all have a festive and peaceful holiday season!  As always, I am sending you lots of love from my heart to yours!
