Belle’s Five Picks for February

Feb 2, 2016

One day, you’re amazed it’s 2016.  The next, you’re shocked it’s February.  Before you know it, you’re carving a turkey wondering where the year went.

This month, I’m feeling bold.  More color, more texture, more impact.  Here are some of the pieces that caught my eye for February.

1. Loeffler Randall Scarlet Lace Up Sandal ($425) // 2. Rifle Paper Garance Dore Social Stationery ($22) // 3. Goat Marcelle Dress ($333) // 4. Queenbee Cuff ($58) // 5. Plaited Updo (Pinterest)

One. Lace-up shoes are the biggest thing in footwear right now.  These Loeffler Randall sandals are so much fun (also in silver/nude).  For an affordable lace-up sandal, I like these laser-cut sandals from Nasty Gal.  I also like their tassel trim gladiator sandals.

Like the lace-up look but want something more conservative?  These blush-colored Topshop lacer-cut grille flats are to die for.  These black ASOS lace-up flats are also a great basic for $36.

Two. Garance Dore created a gorgeous collection for Rifle Paper.  These social cards are very fun.  Her 2016 wall calendar is a great little item.  And I adore the sketches on her New York/Paris notebook.

Three. Red.  I am on the hunt for a red sheath dress for the office.  This Goat dress is a Kate Middleton favorite.  For something in a mid-price range, this Maggy London gathered dress is a nice option.  I also like this Tahari Origami dress.

Plus-size? Try this Kasper v-neck sheath.  Petite?  This Maeve Evangeline sheath is super chic.

Four. Buzz buzz.  This bee-embellished bracelet from Baublebar makes such a statement.  Their chunky Billow cuff mixes metal and sparkle in a really cool way.  For a subtle statement, this layered Pisa cuff is a must-have.

Five. The weather has been terrible out West–wet, humid, yuck.  It feels like my hair has been in a permanent updo since Christmas, so I’m searching for new ways to pin it up.  This plaited updo from Pinterest caught my eye.  I also like this laptop loop, and this pretty, slightly-crazy faux-hawk.

Happy Hour: Atlantic Beach Pie

There are two kinds of people in this world: People who eat cake on their birthdays and people who don’t.  And some of the weirdos in the latter category (I said what I said) eat pie as an alternative.  So if you’re a “birthday pie” eater with a late summer celebration coming up, may I […]

The Find: The Only Wire-Free Bra That Didn’t Fail Me

After Sloane was born, I developed a seething hatred for underwire bras.  The trouble was that I had also developed a larger, slightly droopier bust.  It was a cruel irony.

The 2010s Trends I’m Loving and Leaving Behind

Our tween and teen nieces spent the first half of 2023 reviving our high school fashions.  From peasant tops to low rises, I felt like I was back bopping to N’SYNC in my mint-green sedan for a minute.  Now, our 20-something direct reports are bringing back the 2010s in a big way, and I am […]
