New In: Loeffler Randall Espadrilles

May 21, 2015
Loeffler Randall Espadrilles

Something that I've been doing lately is shopping sample sales in NYC. While I was interning at O, The Oprah Magazine my friend Rebecca and I would go to sample sales after leaving the office for the day. So far we've shopped sample sales from Rebecca Minkoff, J.Crew and Madewell, Baublebar, and most recently Loeffler Randall.

The Loeffler Randall Spring 2015 sale happened in Soho last week. A lot of people came out for the sale and we stood in line for maybe 20 to 30 minutes. Once we made our way inside all of the shoes were nicely packaged in plastic bags and hanging on racks. A misconception about sample sales is that they're disorganized or too crowded. So far from the few sample sales I've attended everything has been organized and not filled with crazy shoppers.

I've never owned a pair of Loeffler Randall shoes so I was super excited to find something that I would love. I ended up finding these really cute espadrilles and once I tried them on I was obsessed. They are the comfiest pair of shoes I think I've ever worn. That's one of the things I look for when shopping for shoes — comfort. And these espadrilles were not only cute and comfy but I got them at an awesome price...around 60% off!

I'm definitely looking forward to shopping more shoes from this brand and I can't wait to wear these bad boys soon. Plus I have good news: The Mara Cap-Toe Espadrille is currently on sale online at Loeffler Randall.

Have you tried a pair of Loeffler Randall shoes? Any fans of sample sales?

Neutral Polishes I'm Currently Loving

May 19, 2015

Once the warm weather rolls around I love to change up my nail polish game. I put away my dark colors and bring out lighter colors for spring. I've always been obsessed with very sheer pink and neutral colors. For some reason they make me feel super sophisticated and mature. Plus they make your nails and fingers look so delicate. Here are some of the neutral lighter colors I'm loving right now:

Essie in Minimalistic (on the left)
This color is perfect by itself or if you want to use it as base for a french manicure. Contrary to popular belief I actually still love french manis. Minimalistic is almost like a pink/white color. I usually apply two coats to get the precise color.

OPI in Bubble Bath
This is a cult-favorite sheer color. I believe this color was released with OPI's Soft Shades collection a couple of years ago. Bubble Bath is a very light pink sheer and I usually apply three coats to get the best color. However I think you can get away with two coats and it will still look good.

Essie in Topless and Barefoot
This color is a favorite among beauty bloggers. Topless and Barefoot is less pink and more nude. It definitely has a beige-y undertone which I think looks good on light and medium skin tones. I love this color for the spring and it's definitely one of my favorite nudes.

Londontown Lakur in Cheerio 
This is the first polish that I've tried from this vegan brand and it worked really well. The formula is great and Lakur polishes are known to be free of any chemicals. This color reads more like a light pink sheer and it is very similar to OPI Bubble Bath, but Cheerio is a tad bit darker. Two coats are good enough for this polish.

What are some of your favorite spring nail colors? Have you tried any of these polishes?
