Summer Beauty

07.25.14 | Permalink | Comment?

Clockwise from left: Essie “Sand Tropez” Nail Polish $8.50, Jin Soon “Kookie White” Nail Color $18, Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer Highlighter in Shade 2 $62,Lancome Bienfait Teinte Beauty Balm $45, Boscia Bright White Mask $38, Lancome Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate $104, SK-II Facial Treatment Essence Eye $95.

Summer beauty to me is all about more natural makeup and a big focus on skincare. I’m not really into my makeup dripping down my face while I’m waiting for the subway or walking down the street in 90 degree weather, so I switch to tinted moisturizer when the temps go up. I’m obsessed with Lancome’s beauty balm—it gives you the perfect amount of color and coverage and already has SPF 30. I mix it with Armani’s Fluid Sheer highlighter, which Rebecca introduced me to. It’s a miracle worker and gives you an amazing, natural looking glow!

When it comes to skincare, I’ve been using Lancome’s Genifique serum for years. It gives my skin a great texture, cuts down on redness and just makes my skin visibly healthier. I recently starting using SK-II eye serum as well after hearing rave reviews about their active ingredient, Pitera. I’m naturally inclined to trust any beauty products coming out of Japan, so fingers crossed this helps with my dark under eye circles! This Boscia mask is a lifesaver, especially after a little too much time in the sun—it cuts all the redness out of your skin! Finally, I’ve essentially been going back and forth between these two nail colors all summer—Essie’s Sand Tropez and Jin Soon’s Kookie White. They’re both really fresh colors for warmer weather!

The Bridge

I’ve been to Central Park a million times, but somehow I never made my way up to the Resevoir. Rebecca finally introduced me to it a few weeks ago, and it’s now one of my favorite places in the city. It’s instantly refreshing to be near water, and when you make your way about halfway around the jogging track, you find yourself on this adorable little bridge. It’s the perfect place to admire the gorgeous views and just take a break from the city’s fast pace. Doesn’t it almost look like I’m in Disneyland? I’ll definitely be back here again soon!







Cheap & Chic Summer: Easy Breezy

Clockwise from left: Gap 1969 Bleached Boyfriend Denim Shorts $25.99 (Orig. $49.95), Kate Spade Saturday Roundabout Sunnies $50, TOMS Black Burlap Classic $54, Annelise Michelson Double Gunmetal Carnivore Ring $395, Alexis Bittar Gunmetal Pyramid Post Earring $95, Loeffler Randall Mini Agenda Bag $325, Sunday Somewhere Spot On Cap $59, H&M Jersey Top $12.95.
My favorite weekend look is an easy tee with some slouchy denim shorts, preferably bleached denim. I practically live in this outfit every weekend of summer, with an added hat and sunnies when the need arises! TOMS are pretty much the best shoe to match—you can easily take a detour into Central Park while doing your Sunday errands and not worry about the dirt paths ruining your Givenchy sandals. They’re $54 and charitable too as you’ve probably heard… when you purchase one shoe, TOMS gives a shoe to a child in need. ONE FOR ONE! When it comes to weekend jewelry, I always make sure that I have earrings and a fun ring no matter how lazy I’m feeling. That way I’m “covered” if I run into anyone in the industry (if you don’t have a full arm party, at least a finger or two adorned!). Worst-case scenario, I’ll hide under a fun hat—enter this adorable spotted Sunday Somewhere cap!

Walk and Talk, Color Block

I LOVE color blocking. We all have those moments when prints seem way too loud for the occasion and become way too hard to match up… enter the easy yet chic color block look. All you have to do is devise a color palette and with more than one piece of clothing black in your recipe, that’s easy enough! I like adding in a pair of sunnies like these—very robot-future-minimalist—somehow justtt righttt. This is my favorite warm-weather market appointment outfit. It’s simple and functional with enough room to keep a manila folder of reports in the clutch and my own luxe “clima-cool” system from the leather in the top (cooling with the breeze outside, warm in air conditioning)!

Obsession of the Week

Bernardaud x Jeff Koons Banality Plate Set

07.12.14 | Permalink | Comment?

Bernardaud x Jeff Koons Banality Series Set of 6 Bread & Butter Plates $380
As you know, Rebecca spent the first part of her Fourth of July and then the whole week afterward gushing over the Jeff Koons Retrospective at the Whitney Museum. Renee has yet to see it, but his Banality Series caught her eye at Bernardaud. Wouldn’t it be amazing to host a dinner party on these plates? Talk about a conversation starter. They’re altogether creepy and disturbing in their insane kitsch. It seems to us like these sculptures were born to sit on plates as well in their previous forms… that in itself may be the perfect commentary on art intersecting with the every day!
