yes, that time of year again........
the time where 'wish lists' are created for holiday gift giving. i always have a great time doing this because it's a mixture of the ridiculous, extravagant & attainable.
so, if $ was no object, i was purely selfish & had no shame in saying exactly what i'd want to buy myself this holiday season then.... these are it:
clockwise from top left:
giada forte cotton lace dress in navy
filson cotton canvas & leather duffle bag
sarah graham rattlesnake grass gold bracelet
souchi tiffany cashmere rib leggings
vintage jaguar in navy
the perfect nails & the perfect manicure (ask for colleen) in gold
aquazzura black & gold ankle strap shoes
saint laurent bow tie
egon schiele's gerde schiele in plaid
absolutely beautiful this time of year...especially in aspen! the colors are incredible, the sounds magical and the sense that it's all just about to happen makes it my favorite time.
from a fashion perspective i love that layers are brought in to mix with your favorite summer pieces. that perfect tank, pretty dress you can't seem to stop wearing and those favorite just worn in enough jeans.......yep, who wants to give those up? they were good to you all summer so lets add a few layers and still enjoy them.
add boots, layers, great leather bag & yummy knits to warm it up.
in stores now:
*alyssa will be available on-line soon
giselle, the quintessential beach girl.....
so, i do have an obsession with giselle for all the obvious reasons. truly her body is a work of art and if i had that body for sure i would be designing way more bikinis because i would be wearing them to work, office, movies, wherever!
but, i also love her effortless way of dressing. yes, this is her style year round but i love it for my summer look. so here is what we have at souchi.com that we feel she'd love or that could give you that easy breezy summer vibe.
souchi tricia head scarf
giada forte silk & cotton shirt
souchi gomez dress
souchi penelope v-neck sweater
cindy kirk leather pouch cross body bag
nue silk jumpsuit
santoni low leather wedge
giada forte braided leather belt
love those lazy days of summer......loungin' with your friends, sprinklers, thoughts of 'are we too old for slip & slide?' which is really code for 'i don't want to break a hip or bone...
well, those days are meant for simple tees, awesome jeans, a cozy sweater, old school style sunglasses, ipa's, and flats...AND great accessories.
here are my favorites:
victor simoni zip wallets
tom ford sunglasses
mother denim railroad stripe lookers (available souchi chicago 773-687-9638)
borsalino straw hat
santoni woven leather brogues
souchi tricia head scarf in cashmere & linen
giada forte sandals
souchi duncan hooded cardi
ace & jig cotton pegged trouser
my favorite perfume available here (this is the brand but not the scent)
enza costa stripe long sleeve tee
the classic americana converse all stars
giada forte silk & cotton shirt
summer to me means......in the words of cover girl 'easy breezy'
i am always in my tried and true mother denim runaways*, my same colorful straw fedora (purchased at saks fifth avenue mens department in 2007), enza costa tanks, butik beads, souchi's lindsay cardi and of course a wedge! and this one from santoni is on serious rotation.
at 45, i have yet to master eye makeup so i go for simple: laura mercier illuminating tinted foundation, loreal mascara (red/white one) & bright color on my lips. current faves are a hot pink by mac & orange by tom ford.
my new summer addictions are:
giada forte silk maxi skirt
my souchi williams crop sweater
my new barton pierra aviators with curved lenses
pomegranate martinis - the new cosmo (if in basalt try three at tempranillo)
commando girl short - perfection for your sheer pieces
