Perfect Vacation Outfits
"I designed the Olympia dress with a summer jet-set schedule in mind: sightseeing during the day, lunch, followed by evening cocktails. This dress will get you through that sort of itinerary. I love it paired with this suede fringe Saint Laurent bag."
Monogramme Fetish Suede Shoulder Bag
"I'm loving embroidery on denim these days. A high-waisted jean to go back with my Carmen off-the-shoulder classic is one of my favorite summer looks. I love to style this look with a pointy-toed kitten heel in patent leather to add a little glam. I'm also really looking forward to wearing many straw bags this summer!"
