Since I’ve grown very fond of a brand that produces dresses and skirts mainly in midi-length, I’ve been forced to look at heel options that I am actually able to wear on a daily basis.
I stumbled upon Nili Lotan when I looked through the Spring 2019 collections. I wanted to wear almost every outfit in her lookbook. Her style is definitely New York: sophisticated, a touch of masculinity, not trying too hard.
I’m always on the lookout for a pair of heels that I’ll actually wear. I have so many stilettos, but most of the time I opt for flats because of the comfort. Block heels are my favorite as of late, and then I’ve discovered the 2.5 inch heel.
I have an extremely stylish friend from Nigeria, and every time I see her I admire her clothes, accessories, and everything else that she is carrying with her. It always pulls you in when someone knows exactly who they are stylistically I think, because nothing seems forced.

I've been wanting a crochet bikini for years and finally got one at the end of last season (which came in handy for my trip to the Dominican Republic last September, where we had to flee from Hurricane Irma).
I've met the Artigas sisters (Gabriela designs, Teresita manages) when I lived in Los Angeles. They live together with their brother (who is also in the creative field) in a what I can only describe as a charismatic house, a mix of their Mexican roots and California ease.
As another snowstorm is howling outside my window, I'm thinking about summer and espadrilles. The last few summers I've basically worn one pair of shoes 90% of the time.
Martine's Dream is a small boutique in Crown Heights, my neighborhood. Martine (the owner) is a global citizen with a huge heart, and is for the most part traveling around the world to bring back goods to her store.
So this label is more known for lingerie (Lonely Lingerie). For all the realness and modernness, the lingerie is very romantic, and flattering on all body types.
Katayone Adeli is Iranian born and raised in California, and unfortunately only operated her label for a few years at the end of the 90s beginning 2000s.
