Accessories to covet for spring: Cream, off-white and ivory, oh my.

This all-black loving woman is suddenly eyeing spring accessories in various shades of cream, and I can only imagine that it’s some sort of uncontrolled visceral reaction to 8 million years of winter that we just got through in the northeast. (That’s a rough estimate; it could be closer to 9 million years but I’d have to do the math.) If you’re starting to freshen up your own wardrobe with a few lighter, brighter accessories, take a look at these gorgeous options in various shades of ivory, cream, ecru, and off-white. They’re definitely little splurges, but the kind that can...

Angela and Roi Crossbody bags for a cause. You know, beyond your spring wardrobe.

I only have one crossbody bag in my closet, which given my bag obsession seems ridiculous, I know, but I use it so much that I think it might be time to add another, like say this new one from Angela & Roi. How convenient! I love how each color of their bags connects to a specific worthy cause, so not only are you getting a gorgeous vegan leather bag, you’re also giving a little back to a charity with your purchase. The new Arc Crossbody definitely fits in with their line of sleek, simple bags, though I have to say I like how this particular...

5 fashionable things I’m coveting right now

With all this warmer weather, I can practically taste spring, which means slowly putting away the sweaters and boots and maybe, just maybe, getting ready to add a few new pieces to my wardrobe. The kind that aren’t designed primarily to keep me warm and dry. After poking around my favorite online shops, here are 5 fashionable items  I’m crushing on right now that I hope you love too. -Kristen CMP is an rstyle affiliate   1. I know, I know, it’s hardly time for sandals. But I’m all about being prepared should it happen warm up sooner than expected. Wishful thinking?...

Our favorite Hayden-Harnett cuff bracelets, now 75% off! That’s your cue to shop.

Editor’s note: Post updated with new sample sale link on June 25, 2015. Happy shopping! If you want to score an amazing deal on one of our favorite accessories that we pretty much wear every single day, hurry over to the Hayden-Harnett sale section. Their cool leather cuff bracelets are marked down all under $25, which is a huge savings considering they’re usually $98.

Etnies Spring 2015: Cool skater shoes for kids, even if they’re not skaters. Yet.

My son hasn’t pulled out his skateboard in a couple of years but that hasn’t stopped him from wearing his new etnies from their Spring 2015 collection. And considering how picky he tends to be about footwear, I’d say that’s nothing short of amazing. If you’re looking for something a little cooler than your average sneaker for your kids, I’m really digging the new etnies spring collection, particularly the Lo-Cut SC Kids that don’t even look like your typical skater kicks. They’re ridiculously light, though still supportive and comfortable thanks to a foam mid-sole. And my son, who is still not super keen on...

Oscars jewelry: Steal these celeb necklaces for a steal.

Well, we can’t all be 6-foot tall without heels, look ravishing in our zillion-dollar size zero custom designer gown, and play dress-up with some borrowed jewels that we could hock to put our kids through 35 semesters of college. At least not every day. So I love looking at the fancy designer jewelry worn on the Oscars red carpet each year–and then figuring out how to get the looks for less. This year it was all about necklaces. Big, fun, statement necklaces. And hey, I like big fun statement necklaces. Coincidence? I think not. CMP is an rstyle affiliate   ...

These bags are so clutch

Sometimes I will spring to come through my accessory purchases, and right now, I’m eyeing the colorful new leather clutch bags from local label Campos. While I love the metallics–my go-to when I’m not stocking up on even more black (don’t judge me)–I am actually raising an eyebrow at the pretty lemon yellow, ballet pink, and mint green. I’m thinking this could be the retail version of light therapy that can beat my awful winter ennui that always sets in for me about this time every year. Maybe? Possibly? The small clutch bag is great too, but I really like the large clutch bags, which, at 10-inches...

Mavenhaus Collective: Limited edition women’s fashion that you will want. Warning you now.

I’m not surprised that Mavenhaus Collective instantly turned me into a fan before I was even off the homepage, especially considering it was created in part by our friend, Pinterest tastemaker extraordinaire Traci French of Blissful Blog, along with equally desing-passionate sister, Tara Schlosser. The site features limited-edition designs from amazing designers who specialize in women’s fashion. In other words, if you see something you love, grab it now or forever hold your peace. I could link to my favorite items, but with no more than 50 of each–and often fewer–who knows if they will still be there by the time you get to...

Cool boot socks that make your old Hunter Boots new again.

Who can’t live without their Hunter Boots, raise your hand? (Oh look! It’s my entire Brooklyn Neighborhood!) While they’re not the snowboots that my Sorel boots are, I adore the versatility of my Hunter Boots, which are the perfect wellies in a summer rainstorm; or pop in a pair of fleecy Hunter Boot Socks and make them toasty enough for cold winter morning walks to school. When I first got my own boots, I was sure to grab a pair of the microsoft sock inserts in black. But now it turns out there are so many cool designs, you can pretty much turn...

Snow boots worth the investment: The Sorel Tofino boot

There are a few items worth splurging on in your life, and as I’ve learned the hard way, an awesome pair of warm, sturdy, comfy winter boots is one of them. At least if you’re not in LA where everyone seems to drag out the UGGs in 65-degree weather and complain about the chill. (You only laugh because it’s true.) If I can recommend the best ever pair? The Sorel Women’s Tofino Boot. And truth be told, at $150 they’re not even a huge splurge. After two seasons of adding to cart then never actually buying them, I finally bought my pair during last...
